FEBRUARY 28TH DINNER EVENT will feature the talk BEING THE CHANGE, by GINNY ROBERTSON, who is the founder of ON PURPOSE NETWORKING for WOMEN, co-host of WOMANTALK LIVE radio show on WCBM, 680 AM, and publisher of ON PURPOSE WOMAN magazine.
The need for change in our world is becoming painfully obvious. If we are going to learn how to live at peace with ourselves and with others, with other nations, other species, and with our environment, there is much work to be done. We need to find new ways of communicating and relating to each other.
India's revered champion of justice and nonviolent revolution, Mahatma Gandhi, once said that we should be the change that we wish to see in the world. That sounds great, lofty and inspiring, but how do we put those ideas into concrete action? Ginny Robertson?s interactive presentation will help us to better understand how we can apply that wisdom in our own lives. Hope you will join us!
MONTHLY VEG MEETUP DISCUSSION GROUPS offer us a chance to gather in more intimate and less formal settings than does the monthly Earthsave potluck dinner/lecture series. Meetups are casual and are held in restaurants over great vegetarian food. Discussions include a variety of topics that support people in making healthier choices in diet and lifestyle. There are two different groups, one vegan and one vegetarian. Both groups welcome anyone who is interested in learning about healthier eating. For details, or to register and let others know you plan to attend, go to http://vegetarian.meetup.com/9/
, or to http://vegan.meetup.com/29/
The next Vegetarian Meetup group will meet at the Kathmandu Kitchen in Towson on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 1 at noon. The restaurant features terrific Indian/Nepalise cuisine with lots of vegetarian and vegan options on the menu, though the group members usually go for the buffet. The atmosphere at Kathmandu Kitchen is quiet and relaxing, and the wait staff is friendly and helpful.
One topic of discussion will be the meaning of phrase "be the peace that you wish to see in the world". How can we put Gandhi's words of wisdom into action in everyday life?
Group members are friendly and supportive. Please join us if you can!
