Welcome to the Seeds of Life Raw Food Cafe & Tonic Bar in Bali

We’ve got a bit going on here so allow us to give you a tour..

Here in Ubud, Bali, we have our Raw Food Culinary Academy where we teach people the art of creating vibrant living foods & ways to extract the most nectar out of life. We have been doing raw food & yoga retreats here for many years, so a raw food cafe in felt like the next step for us. We compliment the great range of restaurants and events in Ubud – the world epicentre of the raw living food & yoga movement.

Welcome to The Seeds of Life

Raw Food Cafe, Tonic Bar and Raw Food Academy in Ubud, Bali

Our driver is ultimate optimised nutrition in all its forms for all beings. I (Ben Richards) am:

  • A holographic kinetics facilitator for 12+ years assisting over 3600 clients with accessing and clearing trauma.
  • A raw food chef for 11+ years.
  • A living foods teacher and consultant with a strong focus on nutrition, superfoods and the Taoist approach to tonic herbalism.
  • An author of the ‘Intuitive Flow’ massage technique.
  • A life coach / seed planter.

Over 20+ years of study, I have tried and practiced various different modalities of nutrition. Recently, I completed The Plant Based Nutrition course with Dr T. Colin Campbell at ECornell University. I have a tea masters certificate with Wild Tea Qi. I have studied many healing modalities including Swedish massage, deep tissue and trigger point therapy, sports massage, structural integrity, Thai massage, myofascial release, acupressure & courses in acupuncture, crystal & aroma therapies, shamanism and energy work outside the field of traditional therapies. This has spawned a massage technique I call ‘Intuitive Flow’ which had a profound effect on me because through it I was understanding the story of a person’s life and ultimately, how our thoughts create our realities. Many of these systems only treat the effects, applying a ‘band-aid’ over the issue. This drove me deeper. For the last 11 years, I have been an active facilitator of holographic kinetics, the most effective modality in healing our spirit of its traumas that I have found. It addresses and clears the causes of imbalances arising from our past lives, from the morphogenetic field (genetic hereditary line), or from inter-dimensional interference.

Hospitality has been the financial driver of my studies. After 25+ years working in the industry from award winning through to dodgy kitchen teams and cocktail bars to managing high end restaurants and food and beverage outlets in 5 star hotels, I have developed a passion and a keen eye for excellence, quality and a sense of joy in the service industry. I simply come alive when I serve up the best and happily offer my passion and skills to you here on Bali and around the world at different events.
