Retreat location

This raw food chef certification and training takes place in Bali, the tropical island of the gods and goddesses. The abundance of organic tropical fruits and veggies simply makes Bali the perfect training ground. Your creative mind and noble body will be left nourished, activated and inspired.


Living foods are raw foods, meaning they have not been cooked in any way and still have all the natural enzymes within them. Preparing and maintaining food at or below 48 degrees centigrade (118 degrees Fahrenheit) preserves the inherent life-force and information / nutrition within the foods.

It is within the distilled and structured waters of the plants that people find the most effective sources of energy and information. There are many subtle energies within nature and the foods people eat that are sensitive to preparation.

Of course, there are some elements that can handle being prepared above these temperatures but the most beneficial are the subtle and more delicate forces in nature. This knowledge is the foundation of this raw food chef certifications training here in Bali and The Seeds of Life Ubud Bali's philosophy of food preparation.
