It includes the health benefits of a vegan lifestyle and debunks the protein myth. This presentation will explore the top 3 reasons people choose to adopt a vegan lifestyle – for the animals, for their health, and for the environment. And, it will lay out a simple program for getting started.
“Environmental Ethics: A New Paradigm of Wholeness and Integrity”
The world is a web of relationships. This presentation explores the current human-nature relationship. It asks: How do we treat the Earth and those who inhabit it? Could we find a more mutually beneficial way of relating to and treating nature? This presentation calls for a new paradigm in the way we see all animals – beings worthy of autonomy, respect, and compassion. In this presentation, we will explore the exciting potential for healing of environmental degradation and improving human relationships, by changing the way we see nature. With a few simple shifts we, as consumers and citizens, can make choices that have a positive ripple effect, benefiting beings everywhere. There is great potential for positive change found in: the human connection to the natural world, the power of cooperative relationship, and tapping into our innate compassion. Our survival, as a human species, depends directly upon learning cooperation with and reverence for the natural world.
“Creating Global Unity: Channeling Compassion into Impactful Action”
Worldwide, many people are waking up to the urgent need to create a more harmonious global humanity. We are called to become a beneficial presence on the planet. Whether your interest is poverty, global hunger, homelessness, human rights, or animal liberation, this presentation will stoke the embers of passion and compassion and help you translate it into beneficial, focused action. This presentation is for concerned citizens and activists alike. Learn how to avoid a common pitfall of activism – burnout – by choosing a path of activism that energizes you. We also explore the continual process of introspection/reflection and outward activism, the ongoing process of going within, then sharing those insights in your activism so you can be an activated individual, sharing love, and peace as you work toward global unity in its many forms.
“Living As Love: The Vegan Ecofeminist Paradigm of Wholeness and Integrity”
Learn how women and other-than-human animals are treated as consumable objects within modern society and what you can do about it. The use of animals for food and other products is the most heavily ingrained practice of institutionalized violence. We learn to think of animals as ‘something’ instead of ‘someone’ and this creates a disconnect from our innate love and compassion. Eating animals is the first time we learn as children that ‘might makes right.’ And, this numbing out from our natural compassion seeps into all other areas of our lives. Join us for this powerful discussion and learn how to return to wholeness as individuals and as a global humanity. Healing our relationship to other-than-human animals can heal your body and the planet. Shifting the way we look at animals has radical potential to shift the way we relate with ourselves and with other humans. Learn about the real power each individual has to manifest a revolution of love and create a peaceful world for all beings.
