Pure Living Expo & Conference at Sedona’s Red Rocks

The third annual Raw Living Expo has been renamed the Pure Living Expo & Conference to concentrate on exploring the connection between food, health and ecology from July 23 to 27 at the Arizona Hilton Sedona Resort & Spa, with a motto of “Rejuvenate, Cleanse, Empower.”

The world’s premiere enlightened eating celebration showcases two of the fastest-growing segments of the food marketplace: gluten-free and raw living foods. With a lineup of potent yoga and wellness classes, personal growth workshops and an all-new Pure Earth School, the expo attracts a global group of health enthusiasts hungry for change for three days of panels, demos, meals and parties.

With more than 45 presenters and 50 top companies, the Pure Living Expo & Conference features professional chef demonstrations, keynotes, workshops, the Best of Raw Awards gala, receptions, outdoor gardening skills, after parties and more.

Presenters already booked include Matt Monarch, CEO of The Raw Food World; Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author of There Is A Cure for Diabetes; John Roulac, founder of the Nutiva brand; Thomas Lodi, M.D., founder of An Oasis of Healing alternative cancer treatment center, in Mesa, Arizona; Sonya Sophia, EFT expert; Cindy Kubica, stress reduction expert; David Sandoval, founder of Purium Health Products; Dan McDonald and Dave Conrardy, lifestyle and living foods teachers; Cherie Soria and Dan Ladermann, of Living Light Culinary Institute; Rev. Arlene Hylton, of Agape International Spiritual Center; Jeff Masters, of Sedona’s Thunder Mountain Wellness; Ruza and Jesse Bogdonavich, internationally acclaimed raw foods teachers; Dr. Viktoras Kulvinksas, author of Survival in the 21st Century (video); and Pure Living Expo founder Chireya Fox.

The Best of Raw Pure Living Awards, a “green carpet” pure celebrity gala and formal dinner are the highlight of the event. The awards have been bringing much deserved attention to the exciting personalities, companies and products in this billion-dollar segment of the food industry since 2008. The sit-down dinner will be prepared by Hilton celebrity Chef Salvatore Moscato, with the option of cooked and raw plates.

Sedona’s own natural foods Chef Chris Holden will create an all-new Pure Living Cafe experience for participants, including pure organic, non-GMO and gluten-free entrées, side dishes, treats, cold pressed juices, desserts and beverages, including signature superfood low-acid coffee drinks, mocktails, superfood elixirs and custom smoothies.
