Ecuador

Raw Trips

With Raw Trips, you’ll travel the world with raw food chef and guide Kirsten Gum, who leads retreats in South America, Australia and beyond. The company also offers weekend retreats and raw cooking classes in various locations in the U.S. A retreat center in Vilcabamba, Ecuador serves as home base.

Costa Rica

Finca de Vida

Translated as the Farm of Life, the retreat space is in a rural, mountainous area of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. Check the calendar for the various retreat offerings — raw food meals are always available but many retreats are specific raw food ones led by educators and designed around an event. The organic farm offers a handful different types of lodging, from a cabin to a guesthouse.

Arizona

Tree of Life

Based in Patagonia, Ariz., Tree of Life was founded by a rabbi-physician who graduated from Columbia Medical School and has written numerous books about health and spirituality. Visitors to the Rejuvenation Center are asked to adhere to the Tree of Life dharma, which means eating at least an 80% live food diet and observing certain spiritual practices. Accommodations range from a guest house to casitas, and guests have a range of programs, like raw food prep classes and spa treatments.

Honduras

Casa Verde

Honduran rainforest surrounds Casa Verde, located on the Caribbean coast along Rio Cangreja. Entirely raw food, the retreats combine yoga with consciousness-raising talks and outdoor activities. Because the retreats are limited to 4-5 people, visitors can expect an intimate experience and comfortable accomodations.

New York

Sanivan Holistic Retreat and Spa

This spa is a good way to test the waters of a raw diet because it’s an easy weekend getaway or even just an overnight stay. Though they focus on a healing lifestyle rather than dieting, a raw option is available as are juice cleanses along with spa treatments, yoga and some homey “do nothing” activities like reading in the library and petting the retreat’s cats.

Washington

Cedar Springs

Eat organic, vegan raw food while focusing on your spiritual health in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Also a farm, the retreat has an educational component but allows time to relax, go hiking or get a massage, whether staying for three days, a week or more.

Thailand

Tao Garden Health Spa & Resort

Set in Chiang Mai, a mountainous inland vacation spot in Northern Thailand, the holistic retreat hosts various raw food programs that include clinical care, oxygen therapy and different types of massages. Room sizes and quality vary but the campus has a lot going on, including a tai chi field, herbal steam bath, swimming pool and meditation hut.


Announcement

With greatest relief, this is the long overdue announcement of the official dissolution of Farhad’s marriage to Ms. Farah Rahmani, a.k.a. Tina Rahmani. In early April 2017, Farhad filed for divorce on the grounds of physical and emotional cruelty and the Supreme Court of British Columbia granted him the divorce in February 2018.

Ms. Rahmani forfeited the opportunity to be a member of this family by purposefully and methodically undermining it.

I am Farhad’s older sister. It has been a trying several years for all of us - from our father (Baba) who has been subjected to Farah Rahmani’s menacing ways - to my son Alex who not only was physically assaulted by Ms. Rahmani but also has had to modify and adapt his professional responsibilities and personal life to be able to spend extended periods in Canada to guard Baba against her violence - to our selfless cousin who graciously took over attending to Baba when Farhad had to dodge Farah Rahmani’s rage and neither Alex nor I could be there - but in particular, my heart aches for Farhad who is too trusting and has endured so much.

In spring 2016, a number of law enforcement and mental health professionals, with practical experience with the characteristics and behavior exhibited by Farah Rahmani, cautioned she would not take an abrupt and permanent separation from Farhad lightly and advised us to implement measures to protect ourselves.

In general, the immediate family has been waiting with consternation but has had to tread carefully so as not to put Farhad in further peril.

We were aware that we were normalizing Ms. Rahmani’s misrepresentations by not retorting her barbs as they happened. When we knew she was targeting someone and believed they were in imminent danger, we cautioned them but refrained from being oppositional and declined to defend ourselves to relatives, friends, and 'community members' against her fabrications and accusations as they happened because that is not who and what we are.

As Farah Rahmani’s relentless maleficence toward Farhad, the family, and others continues, the time has come for us to say what we have been holding back.

This monograph is composed of some of my notes, observations, sketches, and essays on various media from napkins to paper grocery bags during the past several years.

I started questioning Ms. Rahmani's motives shortly after meeting her for the first time. The full extent of her plan eluded me at that time but it was clear even then that she meant to harm Baba and the rest of the family. It was also obvious that her ruse included 'flattering and stroking' me to the point of (literally and figuratively) supporting her as she attempted to create friction between Farhad and the rest of the family.

So, as Farah Rahmani seized (and often created) opportunities to meet and converse with me, I chronicled our many interactions and noted my observations and communications with others about her for an accurate, contemporaneous record to help me 'figure' her and make sense of her abhorrent and inexplicable behavior.

Albeit in their rough form, I have now agreed to the release of some of those notes in this format because, if any good is to come out of our experience, it is that it may serve as a warning – Specifically, to motivate others to ponder potential perils of rash marriages as well as to highlight the effects of unaddressed and uncontrolled mental illness on those who suffer from it and its heavy toll on unsuspecting bystanders.

Further, I hope our experience raises awareness about the fact that many male victims of domestic violence suffer in silence because of society’s biases.

If it helps just one person, it is worthwhile. Similarly, since Farah Rahmani is a serial predator, I hope this information helps her other targets and victims counter some of her effects.

It has been a trying several years for all of us - from our father (Baba) who has been subjected to Farah Rahmani’s menacing ways - to my son Alex who not only was physically assaulted by Ms. Rahmani but also has had to modify and adapt his professional responsibilities and personal life to be able to spend extended periods in Canada to guard Baba against her violence - to our selfless cousin who graciously took over attending to Baba when Farhad had to dodge Farah Rahmani’s rage and neither Alex nor I could be there - but in particular, my heart aches for Farhad who is too trusting and has endured so much.

In spring 2016, a number of law enforcement and mental health professionals, with practical experience with the characteristics and behavior exhibited by Farah Rahmani, cautioned she would not take an abrupt and permanent separation from Farhad lightly and advised us to implement measures to protect ourselves.

In general, the immediate family has been waiting with consternation but has had to tread carefully so as not to put Farhad in further peril.

We were aware that we were normalizing Ms. Rahmani’s misrepresentations by not retorting her barbs as they happened. When we knew she was targeting someone and believed they were in imminent danger, we cautioned them but refrained from being oppositional and declined to defend ourselves to relatives, friends, and 'community members' against her fabrications and accusations as they happened because that is not who and what we are.

As Farah Rahmani’s relentless maleficence toward Farhad, the family, and others continues, the time has come for us to say what we have been holding back.

This monograph is composed of some of my notes, observations, sketches, and essays on various media from napkins to paper grocery bags during the past several years.

I started questioning Ms. Rahmani's motives shortly after meeting her for the first time. The full extent of her plan eluded me at that time but it was clear even then that she meant to harm Baba and the rest of the family. It was also obvious that her ruse included 'flattering and stroking' me to the point of (literally and figuratively) supporting her as she attempted to create friction between Farhad and the rest of the family.

So, as Farah Rahmani seized (and often created) opportunities to meet and converse with me, I chronicled our many interactions and noted my observations and communications with others about her for an accurate, contemporaneous record to help me 'figure' her and make sense of her abhorrent and inexplicable behavior.

Albeit in their rough form, I have now agreed to the release of some of those notes in this format because, if any good is to come out of our experience, it is that it may serve as a warning – Specifically, to motivate others to ponder potential perils of rash marriages as well as to highlight the effects of unaddressed and uncontrolled mental illness on those who suffer from it and its heavy toll on unsuspecting bystanders.

Further, I hope our experience raises awareness about the fact that many male victims of domestic violence suffer in silence because of society’s biases.

If it helps just one person, it is worthwhile. Similarly, since Farah Rahmani is a serial predator, I hope this information helps her other targets and victims counter some of her effects.
