      NEWS RELEASE:
      ANNOUNCING THE NEW LIVING LIGHT CENTER

      Living Light Culinary Arts Institute, a California business that has been offering a unique form of healthy raw vegan culinary arts classes to people from around the world for 7 years, is now building a multi-purpose center in the historic Company Store, located on the beautiful Mendocino coast in Fort Bragg, California. The building, originally constructed in 1887, was fabricated from clear, all-heart redwood and is considered one of the finest buildings north of San Francisco.

      The new Living Light Center is a 5,000 square-foot educational facility designed to provide the latest advances in raw culinary education to individuals, chefs and instructors and will be the home of Living Light Culinary Arts Institute. The Living Light Center will also contain Living Light To Go, a deli offering organic raw vegan cuisine, juices and smoothies; Living Light Marketplace, a retail store featuring products for healthy living; and Living Light Events, offering event planning and catering, chef placement services, and healthy retreats in exotic locations.

      Living Light is dedicated to sharing knowledge about the organic, vegan, raw-food diet with people who are interested in living a healthier, more conscious lifestyle. Students travel from all over the US, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and other areas of the world to learn how to prepare this exciting new cuisine that offers delicious flavor, weight management, and youthful vitality. The center will be available for authors and leaders of healthy living to share their experience and knowledge with others in a beautiful environment that is dedicated solely for this purpose. The three kitchens located in the complex are 100% vegan and will serve those who want to learn to prepare great-tasting foods from basic to gourmet. The school will have closed circuit TV for food-preparation classes and a lecture facility equipped with an LCD projector for PowerPoint and other presentations.

      A group of devoted supporters and former Living Light graduates have organized The Amazing Raw Food Hike-A-Thon to raise funds for the building of the center, with one LLCAI graduate, Doug Walsh, actually planning to hike the 3,000 mile Continental Divide Trail on a 100% raw-food diet. (Visit www.RawHike.com for details about how you can help support this effort and learn about The Amazing Raw Food Hike-a-thon.)

      Living Light Culinary Arts Institute is universally recognized as the leading raw vegan culinary school in the world and enrolls an average of 30 students per session. Currently there are four sessions per year offered and each session is 3 to 4 weeks in length. Sessions are designed in segments so students can attend all at once or spread attendance over the duration of a year. Living Light plans to expand its curriculum and will also offer classes with other leaders in the field of healthful living when culinary classes are not in session.

      Fort Bragg is Mendocino County’s largest coastal community and is located on Coast Highway 1, about three hours north of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. Facing the ocean headlands and bordered by the Noyo Harbor to the south and Ten-Mile Beach to the north, Fort Bragg offers a wide variety of activities among the beaches, rivers, and surrounding redwood forests, including beachcombing, picnicking, trail biking, kayaking, surfing, diving, walking, hiking, and jogging along the ocean paths.

      The weather in Fort Bragg is delightful. The summers boast pleasant temperatures, and the winters are cool, never freezing. With its pristine air, and ocean breezes, Fort Bragg offers the perfect environment for those who insist on year-round organic produce, floral gardens, and ecological responsibility.

      The Mendocino coast is well known for its excellent lodging, restaurants, antique shops, boutiques, outdoor festivals, Community Theater, art galleries, breweries, and nearby vineyards. Within a few blocks of the school there is a yoga studio, health clubs, a healing center/spa, health-food store, and even a movie theater. Fort Bragg also boasts beautiful beaches where one can find solace and connect with nature. You can choose from a variety of accommodation options in Fort Bragg, including several tranquil oceanside camping areas. Those who prefer to set up “camp” in luxury will find everything from budget rooms to extravagant cottages with ocean views and comfortable, homey bed & breakfasts­--all available year round with advance reservations. Rental rooms in local vegetarian homes are another option for Living Light students staying a month or more.

      Sign-up today and hold your place with only $500 down. If you register for the Raw Culinary Arts Associate Chef and Instructor Training and pay in full 60 days in advance of the training, you will receive a chef coat embroidered with the Living Light Culinary Arts Institute insignia, free of charge.
