About the Event

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21 7-9PM-- MEDITATION: 

Meditation can help us pull away from situations, sit back, reflect and formulate a better outcome through sensitive reasoning. 

Often misunderstood, meditation is not about emptying the mind or avoiding the world. Quite the contrary. It is a chance to get to know ourselves intimately and get rid of mental clutter. It is a way of life that gives us space to better ourselves and act with compassion.

We can all meditate. It starts with the wish to better ourselves. With the simple technique of body scanning, making sure we sit comfortably, muscles relaxed, we are able to maintain calm, physically and mentally. This is the start of a life-long practice necessary to navigate a world filled with uncertainty. Our ability and strength to sit still comes from within. From there, can we block out the noise by disengaging with external distractions? Can we avoid confrontation? Can we enjoy our own company? 

Meditation engages us in solitude, a gift that few understand, often mistaking it for loneliness. Solitude is by choice and necessary for reaching higher consciousness. It is a practice in non-attachment, which promotes confidence, one of the most attractive parts of ourselves. 

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19 7-9PM--Holistic Health and Nutrition:

By looking into eastern nutrition going back thousands of years and still in practice today, we have a window onto obvious and logical alternatives. Indian Ayurveda, the Chinese hot and cold food therapies, tea practices, and yoga are key to understanding where we’ve gone wrong and how we can get back on the right path to turn our lives around. In the fast pace environment we live in, these modalities help us to slow down while increasing our energy levels. Too often do we go through the motions. Holistic health and nutrition forces us to be accountable and become active participants in our own lives, because the simple act of noticing is crucial in staying healthy.

To be sure, holistic health and nutrition is a process that facilitates healthy, sustainable behavioral change by drawing out inner wisdom while transforming goals into action. Any health condition can be addressed and often reversed by simply looking deeply into eating patterns and making necessary dietary adjustments. Long-term goals are achieved through a series of manageable short-term goals. 

Food and mood are related. Once eating patterns are identified we start to understand why we feel one way or the other when eating, connecting feelings to specific foods. We then create a pathway for making the necessary adjustments for treating and or reversing obesity, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and depression to name a few. 

This workshop will start with a food meditation, where you will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with each and every ingredient, activating the five senses.
