Raw Magic with Kate Magic

Cost :  £275-295 plus accommodation (364€ = approx £310) *

Dates : Sun 28 April – Thu 2 May 2013 (arrival advised Saturday 27th 16h onwards)

Language : English

During this, her first Raw Magic event in France, Kate will cover the full spectrum of the Raw Magic lifestyle; you will finish her 25-hour course armed with a practical knowledge of how to make magic in the kitchen, along with a transformed awareness of how to empower yourself and implement the magic in your world.

Everyone who completes the course satisfactorily will receive a certificate, an endorsement from Kate and Raw Living which you may use should you wish to start teaching classes or offering catering services yourself. You also receive the exclusive course manual, worth £10, and your own beautiful Raw Magic apron, worth £15.

All participants get 10% off their Raw Living shopping from the time that they book, and for a month after the course. You will get a discount code you can use once you’ve booked. This discount code does not cover equipment or previously discounted items. Raw Living does not usually offer a discount on equipment, but for attendees on an Advanced Course, we are able to offer 10% off an Omni-blender, and 10% off an Excalibur dehydrator. Please email to purchase. This offer will expire a month after the course ends.

Everyone also receives a free month’s membership to Kate’s Magic Bubble for the month following the course.

Sophie Auber is facilitating the course, and can advise you on travel arrangements and help you with booking accommodation. If you have any questions, please email


The course runs from Sunday 28th April to Thursday 2nd May, 12 - 5pm each day. You are welcome to book accommodation and leave and arrive whenever suits you between Saturday 27th and Saturday 4th. We recommend arriving on Saturday 27th if at all possible, so you have time to settle in before the course starts.

There will be yoga every morning from 9-10am, facilitated by Sophie. There is a small extra charge for these classes which you can pay when you arrive – €7 a class or all 5 classes for €30. There will also be evening sessions in meditation and yoga; these are by donation.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included during your stay and will be provided by the team at Gardoussel. Breakfast and lunch will be raw; dinner will include some cooked vegetarian options.
