Program

Eating raw has its own reward

Eating a raw plant-based diet thins the blood, allowing years of built up waste material resulting from ingesting acidic foods to pass from the lymph fluid surrounding every cell into the blood stream to be excreted. If this is the first time you have eaten all raw, it will act as a detox, however this is achieved while still eating three full meals a day. Therefore, no deprivation or starvation is involved!

The more raw food you eat, the better you feel and the easier it is to recognize the debilitating effects of eating cooked food. You are then in a position to consciously choose between raw = alkali = energy versus cooked = acidic = lethargy. Even if “all raw” is too daunting a prospect to begin with, “more raw” is definitely better than “low raw” or “no raw.”

Because we are unable to digest food and process emotions at the same time, eating a lighter diet can be emotionally as well as physically healing.

Eating raw can help in releasing emotional blocks that may have been suppressed by heavier foods. The food we eat often has more to do with tradition, habit, cravings, addictions and comfort than actual nutrition and energy. The body can heal itself from a lifetime of less than ideal dietary choices remarkably quickly and what seem like ingrained habits or addictions can be changed within days or weeks.

Give it a go!

Eating raw food can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. If you love following recipes, there are websites and books galore on raw food diets. Food preparation does not necessarily require any specialist equipment. Usually the main thing holding anyone back from trying a raw food diet is simply getting started.

This 10-day of raw food cooking at Kalikalos is an easy enjoyable introduction to eating raw in a warm sunny climate away from all the stresses and temptations that may have prevented you from ever trying it. Even after a short period eating raw you can feel how life could (and should?) be. Once you have experienced the increase in energy, clarity and general health, you will have an incentive to kick the cooked food habit.

Daily timetable

In the mornings, you are invited to attend Christina Nord’s yoga, breathwork, and mindfulness. After lunch is beach / free time and the early evening is spent preparing a raw supper. There are plenty of other opportunities to help with the raw food: making breakfast, preparing crackers to dehydrate in the sun, foraging for free/wild food, and so on, but only if you want to - you are on holiday!

If you are on the raw food team, you will already be fulfilling your Karma yoga that the center asks of you.

Instructors

Paula Wilson
After a gradual transition from a reluctant meat-eating childhood via a vegetarian adolescence to a vegan adulthood, it was only on changing to a raw diet in 2002 that Paula's energy levels rocketed and her everyday health improved brought up by her father, her diet oscillated between tinned/packeted food in the winter and an abundance of homegrown veg and local fruit in the summer.

Location

Kalikalos' flagship location is in the village of Kissos. Set in a lovely hillside area overlooking the Aegean sea, Kissos is a village of fruit trees, flowers and greenery, carved out of the forest above the seaside and about 25 miles / 35 kilometers (an hour’s drive) from the city and port of Volos, Greece’s sixth largest city.

At an altitude of 515 meters (1600 feet), Kissos evades the extreme heat, staying comfortably warm even in August. The village is notable for its 16th century ornate Greek Orthodox church and its fine tavernas specializing in regional dishes.
