Maxime Zahra, MSHN
I developed a passion for preparing nourishing foods as a young child, baking bread with my father. As a result of personal health issues, I learned methods of cooking and eating that eliminate allergies, depression and many complex health conditions. Food can be an art form, and I create with flavor, texture and color, often singing and dancing while preparing food. It’s good medicine!
Around 2000, a deep yearning for community and a more natural way of life had led me to residence at Kayumari, a community with a retreat center and mystery school in the wilderness of the Sierra Foothills. There I cooked for residents, guests and our wisdom elders, designing and preparing meals for people on cleansing and purification programs, I trained to support people in spiritual emergence, undergoing profound states of healing and transformation.
Healing from the Roots
I went through a series of healing ceremonies for myself and my family, and was initiated into practices of indigenous Medicine. At the same time, I learned the value of high raw foods, the transformation-sustaining sacred foods and ceremonies of traditional cultures, and studied the powerful and subtle energies of plants, foods and healing states of consciousness, Ayurveda and Medical Herbalism. The benefits of these ancient healing arts I now bring to my students and clients through Prasad.
In 2003, I opened Café Soma, Sonora California’s first organic café and juice bar, a community food co-op and resource for fresh, local produce. I began teaching and consulting at that time.
Subsequently, I went back to school where I earned a Masters of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition from Hawthorn University and received a highly specialized Certification Training in Neuronutrient Therapy from Julia Ross, author of The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure. In addition, I bring a Functional Nutrition approach to your healthcare through continuing education with Dr. Datis Kharrazian, Glen Zielinski, Linda Clark, and Dr. Brandon Brock.
I am devoted to Mother Earth and to the consciousness which is calling us to act with clarity, commitment and the purpose of sustaining and caring for life. When you become healthy and balanced, your capacity for pleasure and love expands. It is a privilege to step into your healing, become grounded and at peace in your body, to feel yourself balanced and in alignment with the Earth, and opening to Her gifts, guidance and grace.
