Teresa Palmer and Mark Webber at The Raw Advantage Retreat

 Teresa Palmer and Mark Webber up close and personal from my 2015 Raw Food and Yoga Surf Adventure retreat at the Farm of Life!!
Mark and Teresa came on my retreat with their beautiful baby Boy and Teresa’s Mom to enjoy the amazing nature that Costa Rica has to offer, a bounty of raw food and raw food education, the amazing Costa Rica sun and connection with myself and everyone at The Farm of Life and The Raw Advantage Retreat. What they got from the time surpassed all expectations!

Enjoy the video, sign up for my 2017 retreat and lets enjoy together!

I first met Mark Webber in LA with mutual friends Steve Berra, Tim Dowlin and Ray Ray Raw while Living with Steve to help him with his diet and lifestyle! 

It had been a while since I got to hang out with Mark so I was really excited when he contacted me and said he was going to come on my retreat with his Wife Teresa Palmer and their son and her mother! When I told Brian and Jody at the Farm of Life that we had some amazing Hollywood Stars coming on the next retreat they were pretty hyped as Brian and I have talked in depth on a movie concept for the raw lifestyle and the Farm of Life in General…

But I digress.
If you don’t know Mark Webber and Teresa Palmer they are both famous actors and Mark is a Director and writer. Mark has been in many many awesome movies including “Scott Pilgrim vs the World”, “13 Sins” and “The End of Love” which he directed. Teresa Palmer is well know for many movies as well including “I am number 4”, “Warm Bodies”, “The Sorcerers Apprentice” and the upcoming remake of “Point Break”, all movies that I love!

This interview goes into the energetic realities of the Farm of Life, what it brought up for Teresa, their favorite places and experiences at the retreat as well as some fun Banter between Brian Calvi and myself, including florescent Speedo’s being shown off!

I really hope you enjoy the video and it entices you to join us for my yearly
