SO WHO EXACTLY COMES ON A RAW VACATION?
—————————————-———————————————

If at least ONE of the following fits your description, this vacation would be perfect for you:

  • You have recently heard about raw food, and you are ready to jump in but don’t know exactly how.
  • You have been researching raw food for a long time (possibly even years!) and have never “gone raw” because you are concerned (even scared!) about doing it the “wrong” way.
  • You are eating raw food, but you haven’t gotten that perfect “system” in place to make it super easy, every day, to stick to it.
  • You have tried every diet in the book — but the weight never stays off.
  • You don’t want to count calories, but you want to stay trim.
  • You have been raw for several months or years, but you are looking for ways to make raw food more interesting.
  • You keep trying to go raw, but the problem is support.
  • You are a raw food chef, and you are looking to learn from another educator and experience the truly unique style of our classes.
  • You could really use a fun vacation where you will have a blast, meet new people, and come back feeling BETTER than when you left!
  • You’ve wanted to check out the islands, Martha’s Vineyard in particular, but were never able to. You don’t want to explore it on your own, though, you want to enjoy it with an “insider” and enjoy the secret spots that you might never have found on your own.

WHY WE DO THIS
—————————————-

Here is The Thing, the reason I (Eva) host these vacations. So many times, it’s easy to feel alone on this journey to becoming fully healthy, to finding TRUE freedom in health and well-being. And on top of it, there is a learning curve!

Everything we do is designed to give you the information you need to have all those “AHA!” light bulbs go off left and right. This is when you see how easy this really can be!

In fact, I’m amazed at just how much I learn at each event. In my raw food classes, I’ve been blessed to have doctors, nurses, teachers, full-time moms, farmers, and so many other beautiful spirits there to teach me while they learn.

And you know why they come? Why we learn SO much from each other? When you are in your home environment, it’s easier to have the usual distractions pull you away from your goals. Sometimes, you have to get away to a place where you don’t have the usual distractions. And then all of the sudden, it is EASY to learn. And fun. It’s not just one more thing to do anymore.

But it’s not just the info and the renewed confidence; there is so much to what we do! It’s the shortcuts. It’s the new ideas. It’s the support. It’s the friendships. It’s the other women (& the occasional man!) who come. We’re in it together! Helping each other.

We do often have VERY experienced raw foodists who come along for these vacations. I am actually quite humbled in many cases, but happily humbled! Often the more experienced chefs and educators are looking for new ideas on how to share the message with others. I truly welcome other chefs and educators to check out how I teach. We are on the same team, to say the least!

If you think this would be a worthwhile experience for you, I hope you will come along for the trip of a lifetime! All the details are below.

See you soon I hope, in one place or another!
:) xxo Eva

ABOUT MARTHA’S VINEYARD
————————————————————–

Martha's Vineyard

 

WHAT IT IS (AND ISN’T!)
It’s a quaint and magical island 7 miles off the coast of Massachusetts. It’s not a Vineyard, although there once was a working Vineyard on the island. Legend has it there was a Martha, but detailed research points to a MARTIN rather than Martha!

Here is what you will find in the island’s 6 distinctly different towns:

The HarborVineyard Haven — The year-round gateway to the Vineyard with ferries running year round — Home to Owen Park Beach, the Katharine Cornell Theatre, West Chop (and its lighthouse), Lake Tashmoo, and plentiful sailboats anchored here, there, and everywhere

Oak Bluffs — Home to Lagoon Pond, the ridiculously cute gingerbread houses at the Campground Meeting Association, the oldest operating carousel in the USA, the beautiful vistas en route from OB to Edgartown (like true paradise!), and Ocean Park with the gazebo I just love

Edgartown LighthouseEdgartown — the elegant town known for its many whaling captains and the lovely homes they built, Chappy and the On-Time ferry, South Beach, Katama, and the big fancy yachts in the harbor — My husband and I were married at the picturesque Edgartown lighthouse (pictured at right)

West Tisbury — home to the annual Ag Fair as a mostly rural farming community — Business district looks like a traditional New England town with farm stands, Alley’s General Store — Could pull this town right out of the 19th century!

Chilmark — another farming town, but this one with a high percentage of secret, hidden homes for vacationing movie stars, authors, and high-power biz execs — also home to the performing arts center The Yard and the cute fishing village of Menemsha where much of the movie Jaws was filmed

Aquinnah CliffsAquinnah (also called Gay Head) — stunning vistas at the top of the Gay Head Cliffs (pictured at left) — absurdly beautiful and unexpected if you are visiting only the 3 “down-island” towns — home to the island’s only (somewhat unofficial) “naked beach” as well as the Wampanoag Indian Tribe — a truly magical trip to come to Aquinnah and visit the cliffs
