Many of you may already be familiar with Shea Lynn Baird
. She and I have been friends for several years and although she wears a number of hats in the natural health world, I want to specifically talk to you today about the amazing commitment the she and her husband, Stephen, have made to the raw food community with Monday Night Live.
In January of 2009, Shea struck up a collaboration with Cafe Gratitude
and they began allowing her to use Café Gratitude's Healdsburg
location to produce a live, weekly, educational speaking event with the hopes of building and strengthening a health conscious community in her area. By the end of 2009, Shea and Stephen had put on 47 events!
Monday Night LIVE!
@ Café Gratitude, as the name implies, takes place live, on Monday nights, at the Healdsburg Café Gratitude
. The events begin at 7:00pm, and the speaker / presenter usually speaks for an hour, although there is time for 90 minutes.
In 2009 the speaker line up was INCREDIBLE! The project kicked off in January with Matthew and Terces Engelhart – the owners of Café Gratitude, and the authors of ‘The Abounding River’, and “Sacred Commerce.”
Some of the other guests included were:
Happy Oasis (the founder of Raw Spirit Festival)
Elaina Love (internationally known raw chef, author and coach)
Laura Fox (the voice of Raw Inspiration Radio)
Dr.'s Rick and Karin Dina
Dr. Doug Graham
Matt Monarch & Angela Stokes
Shea also had 4 different panels (raw chefs, raw athletes & raw doctors), all of which have been turned into ebooks! Click here to check them out.
So far in 2010, Monday Night LIVE has already hosted, or has scheduled some amazing guests and here are just a few of the names who have presented:
Michael Bedar & "Simply Raw"
Dan McDonald - the LifeRegenerator
Steve Meyerowitz - the Sproutman
Ronnie & Minh
Here is a YouTube video clip of Daniel Vitalis earlier this year at Monday Night Live:
