8:30 - 10am

Room 1: Chris Whitcoe and Erika Henson present "Tantric Nutrition". Relationships and nutrition are the basis of daily life for many people. They are very connected and intertwine in many ways, very often without notice. Creating healthy relationships with our bodies as well as with our loved ones and business associates is essential to happiness, health, and success. When we make mistakes in relationships it can cause several years of frustration in our lives and much suffering in families, along with inner feelings of failure. The same is true in our relationship to diet, nutrition, and food. Lack of nourishing relationships can cause emotional eating. Lack of proper nutrition for our individual health needs can create  dis-ease in our emotional lives and psychological states, subtly disrupting our relationships over time.

There is no need for these very common stressors in our society. Understanding ancient knowledge of individual dietary recommendations along with modern scientific studies enables people to find youthfulness and health. Deep understanding of nurturing relationships and psychology helps awaken passionate, creative, and successful relationships. The balanced interplay of nourishing food and relationships benefits every aspect of life.

Room 2: Carrie Leigh presents “Demystifying Colon Hydrotherapy”.  Carrie will provide an overview of Colon Hydrotherapy, discussing the benefits of colonics, what to expect during and after and how to prepare to get the best results from your colon hydrotherapy. 

Room 3: Jay Wesley Anderson presents tips on how to go vegan from his book, “Street Smart Vegan: A Simple Guide To Going Vegan.” In this presentation you will learn practical information that will give your vegan diet transition staying power. You will also discover how the vegan lifestyle benefits your health, animals, and the environment.

Find out more about how raw foods impact the environment and your biofield integrity in this powerful and timely talk by founder of Best of Raw and the Raw Living Expo, Laura Chiraya Fox.

Room 2:  Linda Curry presents “Attaining health, one bite at a time.” Linda will be diving into her journey from cheesehead turned veghead.  From health challenges and conflicting advice, Linda will help you filter through the unhealthy societal habits to finding and living your truth.  We will go through a paradigm shift discussing how we got here, intentional conscious eating, compassionate living, finding our passion, and paying attention to our thoughts.  Linda will finish up giving her most important tips for optimal health including her top 7 kitchen must-haves for quick healthy plant-based meals.  Walk away inspired along with some food samples and delicious, plant-based recipes in hand.
