About Me

Northamptonshire, United Kingdom
My name is Peace Ravenwood and I am a Living Foods educator and experimenter, founder of the School of Living Foods and Alchemy Elixir Cafe ~ based in Northamptonshire UK. I love sharing the gifts and benefits of a life rich in raw foods, and also love spending as much time as possible outside in the garden, growing lots of fresh organic produce to use in the recipes. Wild foraging is also a passion of mine, one which I am constantly learning more about. My life is dedicated to learning and sharing every aspect of life in the raw, from seed ~ stomach ~ spirituality and sensuality. My other loves are of spending time with loved ones Anthony and our tribe of furry companions, reading, researching, writing and a little radical rebellion...my aim here to you is to walk with you while we change our world, one meal at a time Inlakesh Peace xxx

Aura's Page

Hello my name is Aura and I have been looking after Dawn and Ant since I was a tiny little ball of fluff
I am now the grand age of 13 and life is a lot slower these days, but, they keep me busy and those two cat's are a full time job!

For those of you new here, I have a little tail to tell you...my tail is little these days...I seem to have lost most of the lovely silky hair from it.  Anyway, I digress, I have a bit of a nick name you see; Aura The Wonder Dog!  I attracted this special name because I have been living with Cancer for the past 3 years, and those silly vet's said I only had 6 months to live when they found out what was wrong with me.
How very wrong they were.  I have far too much to do to waste time being poorly and have no intention of going anywhere, just yet a while!
In all seriousness, I was very very poorly for the first year, and really worried about the 2 legs as they were really sad when I got ill and cried lots at the thought of me leaving them.
The cancer is in my mammary glands and there was nothing they could do that would make my life any better ~ in fact I would have had a far more uncomfortable life had the removed all the tumor, and that was not what we wanted.  
Luckily the 2 legs are really into herbal medicines and natural foods so this is how we live ~ all natural and simply...I was given Essiac Tea every day, had a homeopathic vet who helped me through some bad times, and then we discovered medicinal mushrooms and the fact that I LOVE fruit and vegetables!
When I was a tiny puppy I was raised on a raw food diet of meaty bones, veggies and raw cheeses, eggs and chicken wings.  Mum 2 legs wanted to see if I would eat raw again, even though there is no meat in the house for them.  I liked eating the chicken meat, but it was not very good for my tummy and made me ill...all them nasty chemicals they give the poor chickens these days ...nasty stuff.
So, I am now a raw veggie dog!  I love to eat LOTS of veggies, and enjoy juicing time in the kitchen with mum 2 legs ~ I help her by keeping her company and she gives me fresh cucumber, carrots and other goodies.  My main meals are brown rice, eggs and veggie pulp, with flax oil and reishi mushroom and added garlic 3 times a week.  I sometimes even have seaweed and bee pollen which I love and eat out of the packet!
I am a very happy little collie and all the lovely raw foods are making me feel so much better ~ my coat is starting to get very silky again, not bad for an old girl.  Now, if only my tail would grow thick again...!

Sad Update on Aura

On 29th March 2013 Aura passed over Rainbow Bridge into Summerlands.
Her life was well lived, always in happiness and her passing was with us at home in my arms in total peacefulness.
She is much missed by all who knew her.
