Six Dinners and Talks, 6:00-8:30 pm


Wednesdays Sept 3, 17, Oct 1, 22, Nov 5, Nov 12



More faith leaders, clergy, and religion members are affirming diet is not just a "health" thing, but a spiritual discipline as well. Are there traditional religious reasons for seeking to live a vegan life? See how four religious paths, plus secular humanist meditators, view and value a live-food and vegan way.

Each talk is presented by different leaders from within the faith traditions, interview style. The first five talks go in-depth into each of five different paths. The sixth talk will bring all five traditions together ecumenically to discuss.
