Raw Spirit Inc is a 501c3 non-profit for "Education, Inspiration and Celebration" that created the world's largest and longest-living raw-vegan-eco-business-music-peace festivals.

Since 2012, Raw Spirit has been enjoying the bliss of freedom felt from letting the festival be in heavenly hiatus in order to explore fresh projects that are guiding us in exciting, novel, uncharted directions.

Back at the turn of the century, while still a coordinator and spiritual teacher at a Buddhist jungle meditation monastery in Thailand, where the monks and nuns were exquisitely ethical but ailing, Happy Oasis, the Raw Spirit founder's first raw mission was to wake up her monastic peers to the vital significance of what goes not only out of our mouths but also what goes into our mouths (via a balanced, organic, vibrant vegan-friendly diet).

Now that the Raw Spirit Festival founder's dream of making the term "raw vegan" a common household expression has been accompllished, the Raw Spirit founder is once again focusing full-cycle on the next evolutionary step: spreading the bliss about the vital significance of what goes out of our mouths via her classic book Bliss Conscious Communcation. 30,000 copies of already been sold! Fasten your Bliss Belts because The Blissology Movement has begun!

Since 2012, Happy Oasis has led more than 100 Playshops For Blissologists to enhance sacred dialogue, prevent and overcome conflict, and raise humanity's conversational kundalini.

These pragmatic, ecstatic events are offered live across the USA and internationally as well as via on line seminars. Since 2013, Blissology University has been certifying Blissologists in Bliss Conscious Communication. Blisstubes and webinars are emerging.

To join us at an interactive concert, sacred singing circle & sharing circle, Bliss Shop or and rawmarkable retreat in paradise or to procure the course books Bliss Conscious Communication and uncivilized ecstasies text 928.308.2146 or email happy@happyoasis.com.

Profile Information

Please let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
Raw Spirit Festival made history by making the term "raw vegan" a common household term and by popularizing the raw vegan movement and what is today a billion dollar industry. Raw Spirit was the first event to create a Raw-Eco-Peace Business Power Dinner (attended by 100s of up and coming business leaders, many who consequently today run multi-million dollar companies), Raw-Eco-Peace Entrepreneurs-Meet-Investors Meeting Tables, and Raw-Eco-Peace Job Fairs. These were the brainchild of visionary founder Happy Oasis. Happy Oasis personally helped to launch hundreds of raw vegan restaurants via the Raw Spirit Festivals. When due to health issues Happy became raw, she felt very alone. There were only 4 raw vegan restaurants in the USA. Today there are over 400!

Happy envisioned that by creating a paradise of how we would love to live for a weekend, that we could then live in this way every day of our lives as does she. Instead of traditional security, Happy invented the famous "Hug Patrols" with volunteers in pink t-shirts. Hundreds of Medical Doctors attended each event where an array of medical professionals could obtain CEUs since dozens of dynamic research doctors were among the hundreds of speakers.

Raw Spirit created the world's largest and longest-lived raw vegan-eco-music-peace festivals with 3000+ participants. Raw Spirit was the first to create enormous indoor/outdoor raw events in gorgeous hotels and on their lawns or golf courses with 9 stages from Inspirational Music to Raw Demo Chef Show Cases to Leadership Sharing Circles to Yoga with Music on beneath trees with views on lawns to Meditation Temples Beneath the Trees to Raw Kids Programs to Peace Programs.

Raw Spirit Festival's founder has been a lifelong humanitarian and environmental leader, and was a leading advocate toward banning GMOs. Unfortunately, this stance resulted in infiltration by agents who created smear campaigns against the festival and embezzled repeatedly from it. Despite these hardships, which resulted in having to close the festival, the Raw Spirit's founder is still "Happy".

In 2013, Happy Oasis called her former employee Laura Fox (who worked part time at Raw Spirit for 8 months in 2007). Happy Oasis handed Laura Fox the torch to keep the raw vegan organic flame alive.

In 2014, Happy Oasis was honored by receiving the esteemed "Peer-to-Peer" award at Laura Fox's Raw Living Expo... In this way, the Raw Spirit lives on! May the Raw Spirit live on through You!
