David Wolfe Australian – My visit to his lecture at Samudra in Western Australia – by Jasmanne Matthews
Can I just say WOW! I am so very lucky I was able to see this man in action! When I found out that David Wolfe was going to be speaking a few hours from where I lived, I bought my ticket before you could say, “Eating greens is great!!”
I had never been to a seminar before and I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. After finishing work, I rushed home with excitement! It didn’t take me long to get ready and then I was off in my little car on my way down to Dunsborough. Dunsborough, Western Australia is three hours south of Perth.
There were a few options when purchasing tickets. Attendees could choose to attend the lecture only ($50) or the dinner and lecture ($75). I chose the lecture only, purely because I was on a time limit with the travelling to and from.
The dinner options were;
Organic Mediterranean Raw Pizza with marinated capsicum, cherry tomato, local olives and kale chiffonade, tomato and tangy dressing OR an Organic Pad Thai style salad of young coconut, bean sprouts, bok choi, carrot, tomato, cashews and arame with tamarind, shoyu, lime, ginger and garlic dressing.
Also served with a protein smoothie with chia seeds, spirulina, chlorella, barley grass powder and nutmilk.
The seminar was held by Samudra. Let me just quickly explain to you what Samudra is and what they are all about. Samudra is a beautiful yoga inspired retreat that combines daily yoga classes, organic clothing, an organic vegetarian food room with permaculture gardens and an Eco-friendly shop. They also run world wide surfing retreats.
At Samudra they source local produce and they even pick greens from their very own biodynamic garden to minimise food miles and to maximise nutrition. They offer an amazing menu of raw and organic superfoods which are jam packed with powerful nutrients, enzymes and antioxidants. For the sweet tooth, there are yummy gluten-free and dairy free desserts and guess what??? They are available ALL day! Woohoo! Yummy pleasures without the guilty sin! The prices are extremely reasonable with main meals being only a mere $18! Samudra also runs workshops, events and courses all of that being health and longevity inspired.

On entering Samudra’s yoga room we were all asked to remove our shoes. On our seats were information packs which were beautifully handmade out of recycled newspaper. The whole vibe of the place was absolutely stunning and the music and layout was so very soothing and relaxing. I sat for a moment looking through my pack whilst I waited for the seminar to start.
David Wolfe was introduced to the stage by Leisa Wheeler. What an amazing lady she is! Leisa is the founder and director of Embracing Health, a business dedicated to bringing you health information that can change your life. She even organized the whole tour for David. I was bedazzled by David’s glowing appearance and radiance as he made his way for the stand. For a man who eats ONLY organic raw vegan foods, WOW he is built! Can I just say to all the males out there, that this means NO MEAT and NO DAIRY. Yes that’s right guy’s, NO MEAT and NO DAIRY! It really does astound me that people still believe that you MUST have animal protein to put on size or to have energy! Errrrr WRONG!!!!
David spoke with passion, positivity, strenght, humour and sincerity. He has been a Raw Foodist for 18 years now and I have never seen anyone that looks so healthy and so full of life as he does. David is considered to be one of the world’s top authorities on natural health, beauty nutrition, herbalism, chocolate, and organic superfoods.
