Our Wedding - Join us for the 'Raw Union' Wedding Festival :)

Mr. Monarch and I are extremely excited to announce that I am BACK in the USA and we have a date and plan for our wedding :)

Our ‘Raw Union’ will be on Summer Solstice – June 21st –
in S. Oregon aaaaaaaaaand YOU are invited ;)

We wanted to create an event embracing the themes of raw food, love, unity, permaculture, healing and joy, open for ALL to come and enjoy – so, please join us for this love–laced ‘Raw Union’ :)
We actually have a whole week of yummy events planned around the wedding, including a raw food festival, the wedding/party itself, then a 'Honeymoon Retreat' as a can read all about it on the wedding website here:

The festival/expo will be on June 20th and 21st and will feature speakers such as myself and the Monarch, David Wolfe, Shazzie, the Boutenkos, Kevin and Annmarie Gianni, Philip McCluskey, Anthony the Raw Model and many more yumsters...there will also be food demos, many beautiful booths and wonderful music...

The actual wedding will be on June 21st, with a fabulous Raw Reception afterwards - expect a sumptuous raw feast and a stunning raw wedding cake, made by none other than the Boutenko family themselves...

SoOooOOoOooooo, I am BACK in the US of A :)

I'm sooooo happy to be back...though I was also sad to leave Vilcabamba... ;( We’ll be back there to our land later this year sometime though, all being well...for now, we’re back here in the US and LOVING it...
We just arrived here yesterday morning after over 24 hours of travel back from Vilcabamba and now we're abt to head out on the road for a mini-lecture tour, which starts in Seattle this Friday... pheeeeew ;)
In the end everything went just fine with the process of re–entering the US with my fiancee visa – in fact one of the border guards had seen me on CNN last year and they were mainly just fascinated to hear abt raw food ;) Nice ;)

Guess WHAT? As if there isn’t enough excitement whizzing around our bubbles right now, I arrived to our warehouse here in Ojai, California yesterday (the first time I’ve actually ever seen the warehouse, as it’s been nearly 2 years since I was last in the US ;)...and guess what else had also just arrived at the warehouse? The FIRST EVER printed copy of my book Raw Emotions straight off the press ;O :) :)
I am SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED to meet the book in person :) The full consignment of the printed books is on its way to us and hopefully will be here in the next few days, depending on transport times...I’ll announce it with gleeeeee when they’re here and ready for sale...for now I have been flicking through this first copy with total joy and gratitude...this is my first ever ‘real’ printed book and it feels amazing to see it in the physical.
It was printed on recycled paper with veggie inks and we are donating $1 from the sale of every copy towards organisations that either protect native forests or plant new trees – YUMMY :) This is a revised, extended and updated version than the original Raw Emotions ebook and contains a foreword from my original raw food inspiration, Victoria Boutenko ;) FUN :)

We love yoooooooouuuuuuuuuuuu alllllllllll,
Miss Stokes. xxx
