26 Feb – Too much fire? Diet and the elements

Description: Our inner fire is our engine of health. We need a balance between our different ‘elements’. Ancient sources, Pythagoras and Hippocrates, the father of medicine, as well as Ayurveda, define health as the harmony of man’s elemental components. Our modern life often creates too much ‘fire’ which disturbs harmony and leads to dis-ease. How can diet, lifestyle and nature help us improve our health?

Content: Find out what in your diet, lifestyle, relationships and environment nourishes your mind, body and spirit. Examine the value of intuition, wisdom traditions and science in creating harmony in your life. Try recipes for herbal drinks that can help balance your inner fire. Experience the effect of singing on the whole of you.

12 March – Conscious eating – tradition and practice

Description: Cooking with care and love can be a meditative practice. Eating with attention aids digestion. The resonances of time, place and our own nature – individual type, age, health condition – when sharing meals have been important in many cultures including the Mediterranean, Seventh Day Adventists and often for centenarians. Learn how positive rituals can improve our meals, health and being.

Content: Find out about positive new ways of approaching cooking, eating and sharing a meal. Learn some easy food recipes and open up all of your senses in an exercise of mindful eating.

26 March – Fasting for harmony and longevity

Description: The main type of fast is to go without food for an extended period. Fasting allows the body to have a good ‘house-cleaning’ and a rest. Fasting as a way to health and long life, can aid recovery from certain illnesses. All the major religious traditions apply it in their spiritual practice. Gandhi used it, making the personal political. Modern medicine having re-discovered fasting, has now given it a stamp of approval.

Content: Learn essential practical steps to fasting for your health, weight-loss or recovery from dis-ease. Experience the nourishing effect of art exercises. Try a guided meditation to use in your preparation for fasting
