Mindful Eating, Living Healthy

On Sunday, October 10, 2010, the Buddhist Faith fellowship will have a special dharma talk and discussion on mindful eating and exercise.

The title of this talk is Mindful Eating, Living Healthy. It will explore a holistic approach to well-being by combining the science of nutrition and exercise, and the ancient Buddhist practice of mindfulness. Learn how to savor your food while fully nourishing your body and mind.

This will be a talk and discussion on practical program for healthy eating and living the Buddha?s Way. Inspired by the book Savor by Thich Nhat Hanh and Dr. Lilian Cheung. Presented by Dharma Teacher Jinshu.

We hope you can come and learn more about this topic. You are invited to bring a friend who you think will benefit from this subject.
