About the Author
Wendy Rudell has spent the last 35 years living a very healthy lifestyle and pursuing her interest in all the healing arts. After working as head chef of a large vegetarian restaurant in British Columbia, Canada, and attaining a teaching degree, she became a coordinator and instructor for a Pritikin program in Maui that focused on reducing the effects of degenerative diseases. From 1984 to 1990, she owned and operated a raw food product manufacturing and distributing company on the island Kauai.
Returning to the continent, Rudell attained a teacher training degree in Hatha yoga from the Vancouver Yoga Institute and later studied Ashtanga yoga for three years. She graduated from the Arica Institute as a trainer, and became a licensed massage therapist and practiced in Hawaii for 12 years. She also worked as a qualified colon therapist, gourmet raw food chef, and yoga instructor at the Tassa Hanalei Retreat Center on Kauai for 3 years.
At the Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, California, Rudell implemented a complete program of lifestyle changes designed to teach guests how to live a raw foods lifestyle when they returned home. This included teaching gourmet raw food cuisine, theory and application, breath work, yoga, meditation, and nutrition. Rudell currently lives in Cabo San Lucas, where she provides a similar program at a health resort, integrating bio energetic medicine with the other modalities.
Rudell has developed Transform 2000, a process of awakening the mind/body/spirit and transforming our consciousness. (Visit the website at www.Transform2000.com.) She recently purchased 750 acres of land in the Cabo area to develop into a conscious community based on a raw food lifestyle and high spiritual values.
