Living in an age of modern-day convenience, fast-paced lives and budget-bound spending, how often do we stop and think about what we are putting into our system? Could it be that there is a connection between food, sustainability, and our consciousness?
There is a common phrase often bandied about in everyday conversations – “You are what you eat.” While this is most often used to refer to one’s weight or overall physical health, the yoga texts provide a deeper understanding – the effects of the food you eat on your consciousness.
Join us for an evening of exploring the deeper meaning of food – and how what we eat can affect our ability to live in a sustainability way.
As the Earth rebels against the self-destructive nature of contemporary human society, scientists are scrambling to discover a technological solution for preventing the predicted “dooms day” brought about by climate change. Faced with this prediction, the great minds of the world have turned to science – technologies such as geo-engineering, factory-grown meat, and genetically modified organisms – to provide a solution.
Yet, is there a limit to the role of science in creating a sustainable future, in changing the course of climate change? Are there boundaries we should not cross? This is the discussion taking place behind closed doors – so join us for an evening of bringing it out in the open 🙂 Explore the brilliance and limitations of human endeavor, and the wisdom the ancient yoga texts can shed on this phenomenon of “God-like” technologies.
It is old news by now – the Earth is suffering under the burden of modern-day human society, and change is essential. Yet although we hear this message in so many different ways, not enough is being done to effectively create a sustainable future. Why is this the case? Despite the data and natural disasters, despite the marketing and awareness campaigns, why does sustainability remain more of an engaging dinner topic than a realized and applied way of life?
Join us for an evening of discussion about the barriers to sustainable action and, from the yoga wisdom point of view, how we may be missing a critical factor in our campaign – the role of consciousness.
