WE AIM to produce competent ambassadors for the Living Foods Programme, Knowledgeable (we make sure you have the knowledge) Enthusiastic (you supply the passion) and Confident (we give you practice) to present inspiring classes.
WE DON’T waste your time with long periods of unnecessary attendance, or “course work”
This is a very practical course and we’ll give you lots of support, during and after your time here.
WE DO expect you to read up on the Programme and to walk the talk, as much as you can.
We are delighted to tell you about our intensive Training Courses.
We have designed a schedule of classes to give you a comprehensive experience of Dr. Ann Wigmore’s original Living Foods Programme. While you are enjoying the all live, all organic Live Foods juices and menus, we teach you how to present the essential classic dishes to your own clients. We also give you classes on the naturopathic perspective of the Programme; digestion, choosing food for ultimate health; cleansing techniques; transition to Living Foods and more.
The Courses are for those who are passionate about some aspect of healthy living. People who care about helping themselves and others to a better state of health, energy and creativity. People who are aware of the wider issues around health; food, farming, pollution, care of the soil, the safeguarding of wildlife and plants and how these impinge on our health now and that of our children.
This course is as far away as you can get from a tick box or online course! It is experiential as well as the classes outlined below. This means that throughout the periods spent here you you follow the complete Living Foods Programme. Apart from Day One we start at 8.00 am with juicing wheatgrass and then breakfast juices. The mornings are devoted to classes, both practical and theory, and part of the afternoon to discussion and planning the content of your own classes. Evenings are planned for individual practice of the personal cleansing techniques. Although it is an intensive course with a packed schedule, there is also opportunity for breaks for fresh air, short walks or rebounding etc. There is ample opportunity for practice in meal preparation and juicing, which in our small groups makes for an informal and supportive group activity. During your time here your food will be the all organic mineral and enzyme-packed meals of the therapeutic Living Foods menus, from breakfast to supper inclusive. As you can understand, you need some stamina and determination to stick with the class schedule when you may be experiencing some detox symptoms. If you have a health problem or know that you may be carrying a backlog of toxins from previous eating habits or medication, vaccinations, exposure to pollutants and the like, let us know, and we will suggest a lead-in regime to help you.
This is a practical, skills based course. The teaching groups are small (maximum 6) to allow plenty of opportunity for interaction and discussion. All students will compile a comprehensive portfolio of class notes, but the emphasis of the course is on developing the practical abilities to use for yourself and sympathetically teach others the information and methods of the Living Foods Programme as originally taught by Dr. Ann Wigmore. Applicants must be familiar with the Living Foods Programme as described in the manual “Living Foods for Radiant Health” by Elaine Bruce. This is the basic text for the course, parts of which are used during your course. You are also encouraged to read Dr. Ann’s classic texts**
The certificated practitioner (basic level) will be competent to teach the setting up of a Living Foods Kitchen, including guiding their own students through practical and discussion classes in the following.
Personally taught by Dr. Ann Wigmore, trained in Naturopathy, also Homoeopathy and Traditional Chinese Medicine, experienced in consultancy, she now specialises in teaching the Living Foods Programme to small groups. She rejects the current notion on the “raw” scene, that one size fits all, and all you need is basically to get your client to buy a juicer, give them a short “detox” schedule and sell them a gourmet recipe book. The wholistic naturopathic approach demands treating people as individuals. Not everyone, in fact very few people in the West, fare best on long term all raw, even if the Raw is the highest quality Live food. All her courses include transitional advice to suit you as an individual.
The authentic Living Foods Programme includes every aspect of health, internal and external including how to use food for health as well as enjoyment. During the Practitioner Training, you will experience the full Programme for yourself while learning how to present the essential basics to your own groups and clients. Elaine presents each course personally, and takes a keen interest in all trainees. She helps you with the preparation of your class plans and scrutinises them for you so that you can amend them before sending in the final version
