Seminar and FREE lunch at Lingyen temple

Lingyen Temple has expanded its Veg Out event to include a talk from the renowned speaker and "Power of Food' author, Adam Hart (http://poweroffood.com/).

His seminar title is Optimizing Happiness and it is from 11:00am to 12noon on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Audiences are invited to stay for free vegetarian lunch and tour afterwards. The Lingyen Temple is offering a free lunch, however in the interest of good karma, we suggest making a donation. ;)

    A simple talk covering some simple things that can lead to a better, more balanced life. The hand-out of Ra Products was unexpected. Much thanks. As usual, great food, two chefs I think as there were two styles of food on the buffet table, and happy people, discussions and laughter. An enjoyable way to spend a portion of one's day.

      Three points that Adam introduced as the foundation for happiness.

      1. Manage your blood sugar - hemp and sesame seeds are good for that (and also in his Ra product.
      2. Connection - take the time to connect with nature, even for as little as 30 seconds - hug a tree.

      Intentions - good intentions, thought on and visualized pave the way to your future.

      Some paraphrasing, but there you have it.

    It was a lovely event where I learnt a lot, met some lovely people, took a mini tour of the Temple which was absolutely amazing, purchased a book about The Power Of Food, received Ra energy hemp seed products, and ate some beautiful food with beautiful people. What a great day this has been!!
    Thank you so much to the Temple, all the volunteers, Adam Hart, and all those that I connected with. Feeling so blessed

    I know this is short notice but does anyone need a ride from west end or from somewhere along the way? I can travel down Granville or Oak and get you. I've had a challenging week or I would have made the offer sooner. Otherwise, I'll see you all there.
