Dear Members and Visitors of FastingConnection.com,

My guess is that we are all here on this forum because we are looking for balance and well-being in the body and in the mind.
At times, when we are in the fasting state and are not bothered by hunger or cravings, it seems that we have found it.
Our body is cleansing and healing and our mind is at peace.

But sooner or later every fast is over.
And if we go back to eating the same old way that resulted in dis-ease emotional or physical, than we very quickly loose that feeling of well-being, and the same maladies of body and mind are creeping back in.

After a while you might start wondering if there was a diet that would result in a feeling of lightness and happiness close to after-fasting euphoria. When your tastebuds are so sensitive, your energy is soaring, and you are just happy to be in this body and grateful for the experience of being alive.
You might wonder whether it is possible not to have to constantly fight off your weight and to allow detoxication and healing to continue in between your fasts,
whether it is possible to eat as much as you desire and get satisfied when you still feel light and full of energy, instead of sleepy and sedated,
whether it is possible one day not to have any cravings at all beyond healthy hunger,
whether it is possible to adopt such a diet and still maintain your social life, your friendships and your relationship.


I would like to invite you to join us in the end of the summer (August 18-25, 2011) at The Woodstock Fruit Festival, where 12 of the most famous leaders of the Low Fat Raw Vegan Movement will come together and present a wealth of information in lectures, workshops, fitness classes and personal interaction:

It's a shame the signup date has come and gone :(

My workshop clients would have LOVED to go! Maybe next year? It's great that it's kinda close to us too - I am from Western PA.

I will pray for this festival, and that all goes well! I'm sure many people will benefit from this coming-together of like minded people! I think it's wonderful! Good luck and best wishes!

Where does it say that the sign up date is gone? I don't remember saying that.

We are still signing people up!
If you can help us to spread the word it will be awesome!

On the Woodstock Fruit Festival Website under the FAQ, it says this:

"What is the Deposit and Refund Policy for the Woodstock Fruit Festival?:

A $250 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your space. Full payment is due by June 15, 2011. If you have paid in full, you may cancel your reservation prior to June 15, 2011, and receive a refund minus a registration fee of $250."

Am I correct in reading this? Everyone has to make a deposit to come, right? And the deadline for deposits is required by June 15th, 2011.

If this isn't true, or if I'm not reading this right (which happens to me a lot :blink:), please let me know - my Workshop would still love to come!

Thanks and Love,
Emillie :)

PS: And the $250 is for entering the festival, and that doesn't include the price of lodging, right? Thanks!

Hi Emillie,

Thank you for pointing this out to me. I completely forgot to edit our FAQ page after the 15th of June.

Right now we are still signing people up, but we are asking them to pay the total fee upon registration.

We are totally packed with speakers though. We only accept regular guests.

We have all our fees listed on the page Lodging - www.thewoodstockfruitfestival.com/lodging

All the prices include respective lodging choice, unlimited fruit and salad bar, and all lectures and activities, except for outside equipment rental (like kayaks and bicycles).

$250 was just a deposit.
The least expensive option is camping with your own tent and it is $795.
The least expensive indoor option is a twin bed in the room for 3 to 5 people and it is $995.

Yuliya here in London we have The Festival of Life a one day event you may wish to check it out:
http://www.festivaloflife(dot)net
I helped a friend exhibit last year.
I was wondering do you offer a one day entrance ticket for those who can't attend all days? Or just wish to attend one particular talk? Sounds like a fun family event and I wish you big success with it.

Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.

Hi David,

I checked out the link - too bad that it is so far from where I am!

Our festival is more like a residential retreat with all meals, lodging, and classes included in the ticket price.
Since we have a limited amount of housing options, we have to favor people coming for the full length over part-timers.

Trying to survive the whole thing... :)

I wish I could've been there, if only to meet Tony Wright (I hope he gets asked to attend again!), but I recently noticed that the list of speakers also featured a Dr. Robert Lockhart, whom I don't think I've really heard of before, and apparently he was there to speak about dryfasting. For those who were there, saw his presentation, and would care to share, what did he have to say about dryfasting, basically? Googling him (and googling him along with dryfasting) doesn't turn up much...

Robert Lockhart's lecture on dry fasting covered the basics of what we all know from extensive information available on this website thanks to Milena Albert and some other dedicated dry fasting explorers.

There were 2 points that he made that I find worthy of noting:
1) He always broke his dry fasts on either juicy fruit like watermelon or coconut water (and never had a problem with his pancreas or anything else).
2) He said that on low fat raw vegan diet frequent intermittent fasting is unsustainable. He believes that there should be minimum 2 weeks break between subsequent fasts. From my personal extensive intermittent dry fasting experience, I came to agree with him wholeheartedly.
