The essence of the Tree of Life’s culinary approach, as outlined in Dr. Cousens’ book Rainbow Green Live Food Cuisine, is to eat in a way that enhances the entire web of life on the planet and supports one’s spiritual evolution. This philosophy is embodied in every meal served at the cafe as well as in our renowned live-food training programs.

The fine-tuned result of Dr. Cousens’ position as the leading live-food medical authority and his forty plus years of clinical experience is a sattvic/kedusha, vegan, organic, live-food, high-mineralized, low-sugar, individualized diet, eaten in moderation, with adequate pure living water hydration, and intermittent Spiritual Fasting.

Our live food workshops teach you how to make delicious meals out of the highest quality ingredients on the planet and empower you to take this information home with you to share with those around you.
