Raw Brahs Retreat!

What’s a Raw Brahs retreat and why am I blogging about it? Well, I’m glad you asked. It’s about an incredible weekend, designed to focus on yourself and transform yourself through learning the ultimate best ways to eat, live, be real, get fit, get healthy, and be raw!

By being raw, I don’t mean “in the raw,” A.K.A “naked,” but I do kind of mean that in a sense, because you will want to be naked in two ways:

First, you will want to be naked on the inside because you will learn how to finally bare your soul and not worry about being judged anymore or concerned about what other people think about you.

Have you ever envied people who you can tell are being radically honest and open, without anything to hide? They are totally relaxed in being who they are and the normal fears, masks and anxieties so common to everyday life are just not there. Those people are magnetic, aren’t they? They attract others to them because those around them want what they have. Life seems effortless to them in so many ways – and it is. Wouldn’t it be great to learn how to be one of those people?

Second, you will actually want to be naked on he outside more too, not during the retreat (please), but after you learn how to eat, live, release toxic baggage and exercise smarter. Once you put all that into practice and finally achieve the results you want, both inside and outside, you will feel and look amazing and will want to be naked more because of how excited and confident you are about your new and improved birthday suit.

How will this all happen? Well, thanks to the Raw Brahs talent of getting the right people together at the right time, they have assembled an amazing group of people to facilitate you in this transformation. Here is more information on this team of powerful, effective, raw and real instructors the Raw Brahs have assembled who will be guiding you through your transformation process.

RawBrahs – Inspiration for Your Transformation ~ Edutainment for Fitness, Food, & Fun ~ Expect Nothing, Experience Everything!

No one makes living a healthy holistic adventurous lifestyle look more fun or attractive than the RawBrahs, three super energetic brothers who are racking up fans on Youtube & Facebook with their zany raw lifestyle antics and stunts. Describing themselves as “solar-powered radically honest raw food enthusiasts” on a mission to connect all their brahs & sistas to our Father God & Mother Earth, Nathanael, Timothy (T-Mango), and Daniel (Danimal) have unleashed their killer abs and wild raw food skits on audiences who had no idea that living healthy can be such an adventure.

There are no forms of “edutainment” that are better able to captivate & inspire this audience than these three paradigm-shifting brothers. They strategically use the simple concept of going back to the basics of health by inspiring viewers to drink fresh water, get fresh air & sunlight, eat local organic produce, practice functional fitness in nature, have a strong spiritual connection, and so on. They convey their entrepreneurial free spirits via a clever artistic twist of low budget video production with awesome music which they offer for free through YouTube to anyone in the pursuit to spark social & environmental justice. They are notably known for not only promoting organic, fair trade, local food, but making it seem so tasty, fun, & easy that children under 5 can do it.

Paul Risse from PaulRise.com & CleanseAmerica.com

A son of this nation and a child of God, Paul Risse began his journey with raw foods in Santa Monica, CA where he was a personal trainer for “ABC’s Extreme Makeover” through Body Makeover System. He was also a menu director, life coach, personal trainer and speaker for Loews Santa Monica Hotel and Spa through Body Makeover System’s spa retreat.

The next part of his journey took him to San Angelo, TX to be in his daughter, Kalee’s, life more consistently. In San Angelo Paul worked as a personal trainer and speaker for Community Medical Center. He became a certified raw chef and embraced living off the grid and eating a 100% raw foods diet.

Paul’s next move took him to Austin, TX where he continued his raw food journey by helping open Austin’s first raw food cafe, Daily Juice Cafe, and doing rep work for Rhythm Superfoods.

Stephenville, TX is where Paul’s home base is now. Paul partnered with Barefoot Market to create Stephenville’s first raw food, smoothie, and juice bar. Paul was called to start Cleanse Stephenville, which proved a tremendous success in transforming people’s lives and creating a strong community.

Paul’s next step is to inspire 1,000,000 Americans to do a 10 day cleanse through Cleanse America!!! Where this will take him with his free spirit lifestyle, only God knows, but the excitement and anticipation is palpable for sure.
