There is a VERY exciting new project I’d like to introduce you to (if you haven’t discovered it yet already ;) It’s called ‘Philosopher’s Notes’ and basically, it’s likemini ‘Cliff’s Notes’for self-development books. Brian Johnson (the man behind the wonderfulThinkAretesite, which I keep mentioning) has taken all his favouriteinspirational booksand distilled the offerings in them down into6 pageseach ORMP3 recordingsof around 20 minutes, that you can listen to as you go about your day... I think it’s an INCREDIBLE project and such awonderful offeringto the world...think of ALL those amazing books you’d love to take the time and space to read and it maybe never quite happens for you...sound familiar? Well, now you can quickly and easily get the ‘skinny’ on titles like ‘Loving What Is’, ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’, Eckhart Tolle’s ‘A New Earth’ and so on from a guy whose true gift in life seems to beassimilating universal truthsand presenting them for others in a way that makes them super-easy to understand and integrate. See why I’m excited about this now…??? ;))) In fact, I’ll letBrianexplain the project himself – here’s what he wrote on the Notes:
“The idea is simple:you’re busy. AND you’re committed toreading/learning/growingand all that good stuff. When you put those two together, it can be hard to keep up!!!
Have you noticed that in any given book, there are usually a bunch of REALLY “Big Ideas”—those life-changing gems that really make an impact in your life (those pages are usually allmarked up, underlined, starred, highlighted and all that goodness in my books! :))?!?
Well, what I’ve done is opened up my favorite books, gone straight to those pages with the BIG IDEAS and created “PhilosophersNotes” that quickly give you theinspiring gemsalong with my thoughts on how these ideas have impacted my life and how they can impact yours—all in the context of a 6 page PDF or a ~20 minute MP3 (so you can decide if you’d prefer to read over a cup of tea of listen on your way to work, on a hike, at the gym, doing errands or whatever’s best for you!).”
Brian already has Notes ready for35 different titles, with many, many more to come. The current introductory price for a year's subscription to the service is an incredibly reasonable$19.95, set to rise to$39.95onJune 1st(this Sunday).

onMay the 25thI had:
1 quart water 2 quarts cucumber/celery/apple/ginger juice little bowl of strawberries and cherries = yummmmmm baby spinach leaves, mixed sprouts, pumpkin seeds, a couple of brazil nuts, wakame seaweed 3 cups water ½ an incredible honey-like papaya 1 quart water On Monday I went to the magical launch party of Miss Magic’s new book ‘Raw Magic’ in Brighton. FUN :) (We're going to have the book available soon in theUS- we're working on it - bear with us ;) Kate didn’t know I was back in the UK, so it was fun to surprise her, as well as catch up with other raw yumsters here and meet some new faces on the UK raw scene ;). It was lovely to meetPhilip McCluskeyin person – here is a snap of us both below, taken by the fabulousSuki...there was masses of raw chocolate on offer at the party – I’m onjuicesthough right now. The last few weeks I kind of lost the plot with juicing once a week for theGlobal Juice Feast– it seemed challenging while travelling in Thailand etc. Well, right now it feels TOTALLY right to be back on juice again – my body is still pretty spun-out from jet-lag/sleep deprivation etc and juicing feels like the quickest route torecovery;) I think I’ll juice for at least 3 consecutive days now...we’ll see what happens after that ;)
onMay the 26thI had a juicy day of:
1 quart water 8oz AMAZING pineapple juice 1.5 quarts cucumber/celery/apple/ginger juice 1.5 quarts watermelon juice 2 cups water shot of wheatgrass/ginger juice followed by a shot of straight ginger juice and a few sips of Suki’s intense wild greens/garlic juice 2.5 cups celery/cucumber/lettuce/spinach/sprouts/carrot juice 1 quart water

WOW, it is SO beautiful to me to see how theraw communityis coming together to supportMelissa Gilbertand her family, who I wrote about on this blog a few days back. Thanks to all of you who have bought here-booksor sent in donations. Melissa and her family are now officiallyhomelessand out in the Arizona desert in atent.Her husband has thankfully found a new job – they are now going to live in the tent until they have enough money to start renting a place again. YesterdayDhrumilre-posted my blog post about the family toGiveItToMeRaw.comand it is just WONDERFUL to see all the responses there from people who have gone to Melissa’s site and bought both her e-books for$20, to help support this beautiful raw family in their time of need. You can see that thread on GITMRHERE. You can see Melissa’s blogHERE, which is now being updated by her great friend Aleesha, until Melissa has an internet connection again. If you didn’t purchase Melissa’s e-books yet and would like to, you can see themHERE. For those of you who HAVE already purchased them and maybe not received them as email attachments – please bepatient– they are trying to get them emailed out to people asap as they receive the orders...you can also actually email Aleesha email@example.com you've paid for the e-books and she will send them to you, as Melissa has no real internet access right now...and again, as I wrote before, if you feel drawn to simplydonate fundsto the family, rather than purchase their books, you can transfer money with Paypal to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
THANK YOU, beautiful raw community, for sharing the love :)
All love, Angela. xxx
