Rawkathon – Free Online Raw Foods Seminar

October 20th, 2008 by Steve Pavlina

If you’re interested in getting a fast, intensive education about the raw food diet from some of the best raw and living foods experts on the planet, here’s a great opportunity to do so. This is a free online seminar about how and why to eat a diet based on raw and living foods. It’s called the Rawkathon.

I’m a bit late to the game in announcing this, so if you want to take advantage of it, you’ll need to act quickly because it’s already underway. It kicked off on Sunday and runs for the whole week.

What is the Rawkathon?

The Rawkathon is a collection of candid, one-on-one interviews with 15 of the top raw and living food experts on the planet. It is being broadcast live this entire week for two hours per day.

You can tune in via online video, online audio, or by phone. It’s free no matter how you decide to access it.

The interviews include in-depth information on how to go raw, stay raw, stay motivated, and succeed on this path long-term.

The Rawkathon speakers include:

  1. Dr. Gabriel Cousens
  2. Victoria Boutenko
  3. Dr. Doug Graham
  4. David Wolfe
  5. Mike Adams
  6. Victoras Kulvinskas
  7. Nomi Shannon
  8. Cherie Soria
  9. David Rainoshek
  10. Frederic Patenaude
  11. Dr. Rick Dina
  12. Matt Monarch
  13. Karen Knowler
  14. Dr. Jameth Sheridan
  15. Happy Oasis

If you’ve been getting most of your health knowledge from mainstream media-approved sources, then you may not recognize many of the names on this list. But for people like me who are active in this community, this reads like a who’s who list of the top teachers of genuine health principles. I’ve attended live talks by more than half of these people, and I’ve had conversations with some of the others either online or face-to-face. I’ve learned a tremendous amount from them this year.

I’m pleasantly surprised to see such a great balance of experts, including natural hygienists, raw chefs, disease-reversing doctors, raw evangelists, superfoods advocates, and more. These experts will talk about the science behind the diet, the results and benefits, and the practical aspects such as what to eat each day and how to prepare delicious raw meals. I’m sure you’ll find that not all of them agree with each other 100%. Each person on this list has a slightly different philosophy. By exposing yourself to all these different experts, you’ll begin to discover your own path to improved health and energy just as I’ve done.

Given the quality content these people are likely to share (assuming it’s anything like what I’ve seen from them before), it’s a no-brainer for me to recommend this event to anyone who wants to learn more about eating raw. I have no doubt the information they share will be superb.

Kevin Gianni

The Rawkathon was organized and co-produced by Kevin Gianni, who was also the co-creator of the Raw Summit. The Raw Summit was an online teleseminar event that educated thousands of people about the benefits and the real-world practice of eating raw and living foods. The Rawkathon is Kevin’s attempt to create something even more beneficial.

I actually met Kevin at the Raw Spirit Festival in Sedona last month. He recognized me at New Frontiers grocery store shortly after I arrived, and I invited him to sit and chat for a while. While we were talking, he asked me if I knew about the Rawkathon. I was pretty busy with my book launch around that time, but since then I’ve had a chance to look further into it. I quickly recognized that this is something I need to share with as many people as I can.

For the past few weeks, the online raw community has been really buzzing about the Rawkathon. I’ve received many emails about it, and I’ve seen numerous blog posts on it. I wish I could have announced this sooner to give you more advance notice; I just didn’t have time to get to it until today.

How It Works

All you need to do to get started is to go to the Rawkathon page, scroll to the bottom, and sign up with your first name and email address. You’ll be sent an email to confirm your email address (click the confirmation link), and then you’ll receive info that will tell you how to access the sessions. Accessing the content is pretty straightforward.

Starting yesterday (Sunday, October 19th), there will be two hours of interviews every evening. Each interview will be available free for 24 hours. So if you want to get free access to Sunday’s content, you’ll need to sign up today.

The live sessions run from 8-10pm Eastern Time October 19-26th. This should be a convenient time for most people in the USA. But again, every session is available for a full 24 hours. I logged into my account just now and verified that I can play last night’s session. I’m going to watch it this afternoon.

If you miss any of the sessions or just want copies to review later, you’ll be given the opportunity to order written transcripts, MP3s, or DVDs of any of the sessions. You can get all of the sessions in digital or hard copy formats (or both if you prefer). This allows the people behind this event to generate some income from it. I’m also signed up as an affiliate, so I do receive a commission if you buy something. You don’t have to buy a thing though. If you just want soak up all this great info for free, the Rawkathon won’t cost you a cent.

Join Me

I’m tuning in to this event myself. Even though I’ve been eating 100% raw for most of this year and have learned a great deal from talking one-on-one with many long-term raw foodists (getting easy access to such people is a nice benefit of running a popular blog), I know there’s always more I can learn about this way of eating. I want to keep learning from the leading experts in this field, especially as their work continues to evolve.

I spent more than $1,000 to attend the Raw Spirit Festival last month (conference, hotel, gas, food) just to see some of these experts speak, so the Rawkathon is a great opportunity to learn from them without any travel expenses. I’m really impressed that we’re all being given access to this event for free — that certainly meshes well with my own philosophy of sharing.

The benefits of eating raw and living foods have been beyond my expectations, especially the tremendous mental clarity, alertness, and the way my heart has being opening more and more. I’ve written quite a bit about this already, so I may be sounding like a broken record, but if you’ve never experienced it before, I strongly encourage you to look into it more deeply. We all need to educate ourselves on a more sane way of eating that doesn’t involve processing our foods (and ourselves) to death.

So if you have any interest in learning from some of the healthiest people on earth, including those who’ve helped others overcome lifestyle-based illnesses like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, you’ll certainly learn a lot by tuning in to the Rawkathon.

Update: I’m watching the first video right now while I eat lunch. It says there are more than 12,000 people watching this. I’m currently watching Gabriel Cousens talk about how living foods help us fulfill our genetic potential. He claims he can do more than 600 consecutive push-ups at age 65 — he looks like he’s in his 40s.
