Raw Magic Retreats

The first Raw Magic Retreat was in 2010, and it was a weekend retreat in a mansion house hosted by Jade Belle, with fully raw vegan meals, yoga, workshops, and a dinner party catered by Anna Middleton.

Then there were three Raw Magic weekend retreats 2014-2015 at Sparkford Hall, near Glastonbury, co-hosted with Anna Middleton and Aradhana Kaur.

2016 and 2017 saw Kate and Anna join forces yet again for two sold-out five day retreats in Abbeydore Court, Herefordshire.

2019 saw the first Raw Magic Retreat in Wales with Luke, Lea and Elfie Williams. This retreat was such a success, one of the participants said it was the best weekend of her life!

As well as running her own retreats, Kate catered for a 7-day retreat in Hawaii in 2018. She has created menu plans for week long events in Turkey and Spain, for two 10-day retreats in Costa Rica, and she has consulted for retreat kitchens in Thailand and Bali.

Kate has been a raw vegan for nearly 30 years, and is the published author of 6 raw lifestyle books. Her company is the premier resource for raw foods and superfoods in Europe. She raised her 3 sons on a fully raw vegan diet, all of whom have remained vegan as independent adults. She has taught raw foods in over 25 countries around the world.

Kate completed her 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Stewart Gilchrist in 2019. She is currently studying Functional Nutrition with Andrea Nakayama.

“The 5 days were life changing – I am now reading furiously about raw live superfoods, compounds, alchemy and more. I don’t think I have felt so well for such a long time on purely eating organic and live foods. I am inspired and I feel extremely grounded and non-attached to things that may have upset me before…I want to thank the team for an excellent spot to come to, retreat, have a good long hard look at myself and be myself !”
