Nourish the Pulsing Heart of God Emerging through and as You, as You Discover Lifestyle Practices which Optimize Your Spiritual Life.
This event expounds upon the material found in Dr. Cousens' book, Spiritual Nutrition, giving you a unique, direct experience with the teacher and author.
Discover the secret that yogis, rishis, monks, prophets, and sages have known for thousands of years - a plant-source-only diet can offer immense support to spiritual development. While Gabriel Cousens, M.D. teaches that one cannot "eat one's way to God," a plant-source-only diet can serve as a vital foundation for the sattvic (balanced or holy) lifestyle necessary to sustain the spiritual journey. Learn why a vegan diet, properly conducted, can enhance meditation, help regulate the mind and emotions, and facilitate subtle spiritual unfolding.
Why Holistic Veganism? In this presentation Gabriel Cousens, M.D. outlines seven major ways that veganism reduces "karma." He describes how live veganism is our forgotten and remembered human heritage, the key to our survival in the present, and the evolutionary choice for our future. Drawing on his expertise as a rabbi, a medical doctor, and a visionary, Dr. Cousens provides a spiritual, medical, and philosophical framework for understanding the nutritional, ethical, and metaphysical dimensions of a plant-source-only diet.
Even reversing diabetes and other chronic degenerative diseases naturally through Holistic Veganism is only a part of enjoying the Spiritual Nutrition, "culture-of-liberation" lifestyle and awakened worldview of self, love, and evolution.
