Camp update!



I just added the pictures from this year's International Rawfood Family Camp in Germany that was so much fun again...information and like-minded spirits! I can wholeheartly offer it for everybody out there...it is a great experience! I did food preparation classes (on the picture you can see my personal welcome to you :)), introduction into raw foods, transition to raw foods, raw foods with children and without ;) - there is a difference!, energy work, lots of infos about homebirth, diaperless babies, natural living, carried babies, vax (or not!), homeschooling, eco-living and much more... Join in and learn about it as well! The next camp will take place in Texas, 23. - 30. July 2oo7. For more info please read below or send me an e-mail. I am excited to answer any questions and wishes you may have! I really want to show you a this world of real experience...it all is so easy...once you did it!!! You don't need to have rawfood experience!! Long-time rawfoodists are as much welcome!!

I also send out a newsletter...whoever wants to be updated on rawfood community living, delicious but easy recipes, articles about positive parenting, loving and having fun together, connection (soon also fun for kids!!) and much more...please contact me at sr20500atyahoo.de and I will be more than happy to share my experiences with you! This time an article about tips about family living with a non-raw spouse.

If you want to fill out a very short and quick questionnaire you will receive a list full of information, links, books, etc. to get started already!

And here some news of our daily life.. :)....waking up this morning with rain...this is niiice!! The weather so warm and a free shower from above...heart, what do you want more??!!! That calls for a shower in the garden...and the kids had soo much fun!! They love the rain barrels and buckets (use them as swimming pools...or better hopping pools :)) I put out to catch rain water for the dry season that's supposed to be here by now....(as many residents told me...well, the world is changing..). But it works great for us...the garden grows like crazy...that is fun to watch it grow!! Every day it is taller...you can almost see it getting bigger... amazing...as I am used to plant a seed and wait at least a week....and you might see something green...if you are lucky.. But here....either it's the weather or those organic super seeds...probably a mix of both! It's exciting and turns gardening into fun! We love it!

As we spent our afternoon at the park in Austin...I thought about making a hamac. Does anybody have a great site or idea how to do one? I got some cloth... Well, may be I just keep knotting the ends together...and then somehow a string ...and ...womp...down we go...or so... ;). The two had fun when I just swang them around... hihi...good arm training for me as well ;)... But not really the kind of relaxation I was looking for... And tips??

Yep, so much for the fun around here... Will come back again and tell you more :). Drop ideas for crafts if you want :). Next time I want to sew. I did a book cover and want to do something else...more ideas??? :))) Come on, we are all one...input...pleeeease :)

Raw Fun Family Summer Camp 23. - 30. July 2007 !!!




First of all, a biiig thank you for hanging in there! It took longer then what I had thought. But what takes long will finally be good (is a saying in Germany)! So, here we goooo…yippeeee…

Welcome to a week full of joy! I am excited to tell you about the most and first rawsome family camps ever! Experience the feeling of living together with many like-minded people (nothing like that alien feeling you might have in our society sometimes...) - a short-term rawfood community is waiting for you! As a group we will live with each other and grow together, helping each other where needed. It will be so much fuuuuunnn! But first some more information for you…so, you know what I am looking forward to so much ..hihi:

What awaits you?

Look forward to a week filled with fun, relaxation and information! A community feeling of like-minded families that will make it a unique experience. Together, we will explore the world around us, do trips, fitness training, enjoy fun games in and outside the water, sing together…and learn new things. I will introduce you to the raw food lifestyle and give many useful tips on the way to meet your family’s goal. We will have time to talk and laugh, to play and connect… I will talk about natural and alternative living in a modern world, homeschooling, raw vegan lifestyle, positive parenting (the real connection to each other), the power of thoughts and love, diaperless babies, homebirths, etc. and many other things depending on individual needs (and ages) as well. I will make sure there is something for everybody! Please feel free to participate in anything you want to!

Where are you going to stay?

You will restfully sleep in cabins at a beautiful lake near Austin, TX. Each cabin is fully equipped…, has a kitchen and bathroom. First ones get to choose where they want to sleep J.


What are you going to eat?

Fresh vegan organic produce ;). We will prepare our food together. Talking, joking away while cutting…oh, I can’t wait…. Tribal living is so much fun…doesn’t matter what you do…as long as you do it together…it’s fun! ;)
Note: In order to make it right for everybody I ask you to not bring conventional food (or at least eat it not around others – especially children learn quick where chocolate bars are ;)…) as this would make it not fair for others. You have the opportunity to experience this lifestyle for a week…use it!
Who can come?
Although everybody is very welcome it is especially beneficial for families with children! As this is a very transforming experience (even non-raw children start to eat living foods with joy!) bring your whole family! Grandparents and babies, want-to-get-parents as well as pregnant women or singles...I am happy to invite all of you!! A community lives of all ages!! Everybody is important!

What is included?

Food, accommodation, program (see above), fun and laughter….everything ;)…almost.

I offer a 10% rebate for the first 3 people that want to attend actively and add to our knowledge ;)…or like to help with the children during the lectures, etc. I know that everybody has something to give…something that makes you feel good…something that others might like to know about, too (e.g. information about solar technique, wild edibles in Texas ;), Yoga or others, alternative lifestyle, solar energy, organic gardening/perma culture, information about all those waves around us…e.g. cell phones...and how to protect us, how to make a hammock ;) or whatever else is fun, etc.).

For more information and to registrate please contact me.

More camps are coming – next one around September/October. An advent camp will be in December.

I am soooo looking forward to meeting you soon!
Yours with fun,
:9 Sonja…jumping up and down…having a hard time to wait…lalalaaaa…Yippeeee! Let’s dive into the adventure of raw fun!!

PS: I hope I thought about everything. If not I will get back to you again ;). Please feel free to ask whenever something is popping up…

Raw Fun Family Camps!!


Have FUN and CONNECT at the Raw Fun Family Camp!!


A few years ago, I started the first German Raw Family Adventure Camps which I do each or every two years now…and are lots of fun. They are especially for children (as they are so important and effective for them!!) and their parents/family or people wanting to start a family. Most families have "normal" eating members and do feel strange in there. With this event I do invite everybody with their family of all ages (I welcome grandparents as well as babies and pregnant or want-to-be moms to connect again and get closer, understand each other and be more tolerant). As it is completely raw vegan the children can learn from each other which makes it a lot easier to start with. In the meantime the adults get some education as well. A well-rounded program awaits you! The atmosphere is very tolerant and loving with loads of fun. Everybody helps and works hand in hand.. we all mold into one unit. The children are free to do what they want and usually build or play whatever comes up, build groups, etc. We play fun games, enjoy camp fires, do pyjama parties, etc. It is a very transforming experience.

Families who arrive there skeptical (“How can I survive a week living like a rabbit???” or a teenager about to die just thinking about it…hihi…but was the first to announce at the end: “Can I come again next time?? It was fun…and that fresh stuff is not too bad either..”)..leave filled up with energy (grew together as a family…understanding each other more again) and the knowing they can do it, too!! My goal is to show families, people of all ages…it is very possible to live that way, it is easy and a great way as well! I want you to be part of a life filled with magic every day again…a life as a real community…caring for each other and helping…opening up and feeling again!! I encourage you to live life to the fullest again…to feel!! All those feelings want to be felt…they are real and are there to show you the way…if you are willing to listen to them. We need to let them out and go further as nobody is meant to get stuck because they got mad!!! J Step back, take another look at them, thank them for being there and go further!! You can do it!!! Everybody can!! It is fun!! Life is fun!! It is meant to be fun! And together as a group we can go wherever we want!!! I know it deep inside…I am burning to show you…to connect…real connection within families…get in touch with your souls again…with nature and all its beauty… and with each other! Do a step of your own again…and feel that excitement…that butterfly-in-your-stomach-feeling you’ve had so often as a child…and another step…soon you’ll be running!

I invite you to go back to that feeling and find out about your own goals. Let’s work on it together, support each other and see how easy things can be! And…there is fun within your family! Learn to see your children with other eyes… As I do have small children as well – which are with me almost always and I am very happy about it (that’s why I learned to communicate and listen to all of us as we need to find solutions that make us all happy…that is the way to live peacefully together…doesn’t mean we don’t have bad days and don’t get frustrated as well…but it’s important to find a way of dealing with it and taking them and their feelings for real in order to help them along their way) – your children are welcome to join in whatever you do, too.

This world is too full of commercialized TV, negative news, too less time for each other…too less fun time with each other…etc. Let’s make a change and let them see you can be fun as well! I do believe there doesn’t need to be separation of family in order to be happy and live life somehow.
We did/do unschool our children from birth on…or better said…life learning. Guiding them on their own paths of life is a very fulfilling and fun experience for all of us. Through them I experienced to have fun learning again…they opened my eyes again for all those wonders of nature and our huge energy system… I learned to follow my path and loooove it! They are the true teachers in my life as I know they are the mirrors I need to see myself and my mistakes clearer…and better ;). You are a worthful person of your own…even with children or because of your children!! And you are worth it to have your needs met as well!

The camps are taking place in middle Texas. They are filled with information, many tips and lectures about rawfoods (we will prepare meals together), introduction and healing effects of fresh juices, ways of transition, etc.…how to survive in a family with a non-rawfooder ;), natural living with children, positive parenting/thinking, diaperless babies, homeschooling, games, activities for young and old…and middle-aged ;)…lots of time outside, singing, laughing, playing – yes, adults as well ;) - connecting…some spiritual work…and much more (individual wishes taken in consideration). The next camp will probably be late July/August.

I am looking forward to meet you at my camps and welcome any questions you might have about the camp or myself. Please contact me at sr20500atyahoo.de.

Keep on walking!

Love and laughter!
Sonja
