‘The World Peace Diet’ raises awareness of the connection between the food we eat and the effect this has on our spiritual as well as physical health, offering a positive way to create change for the greater good of all. Gabriela Lerner and Neil Baird will be exploring this important topic in an illustrated presentation jointly hosted by Sustainable Dorset and Springhead.

It has been said ‘you are what you eat’. This is usually understood to mean that the type and quality of our food will have an effect on our health. But at another level we may discover that our food and how it is grown or produced can have an big impact not only on our physical health, but also on our emotional and spiritual health, and everything we do.

The ideas presented in The World Peace Diet show that what we put on our plates and the rituals surrounding it have an enormous effect not only on ourselves as individuals, but on the social, environmental and global health of humanity, the earth and all life on it.

So in order to truly transform our world we must honestly examine one of the most fundamental aspects of our lives – the food we eat – and be willing to rethink many of the assumptions and habits of our culture, ideas we have assimilated since birth and which we may be passing on to our children.

Gabriela Lerner is a certified World Peace Diet facilitator, health coach and raw consciousness coach and Neil Baird is a trainee World Peace Diet facilitator, yoga teacher and photographer. For more details on the World Peace Diet, please see www.worldpeacediet.com

The talk is scheduled to last about 45 minutes followed by discussions in small groups on related questions, with a plenary discussion afterwards on the resulting answers, and an opportunity to ask the speakers questions.

There will also be a stall with a selection of ethical, fresh and toxin free products for inner and outer wellbeing by a company who has sustainability at it’s heart and has won several awards for their green initiatives. Feel free to browse the products and test some of them, such as the award winning Tooth Oil, Sunscreen or Chi Energy Drink.

The entry fee for this event will be £2 for members of either Sustainable Dorset (Dorset Agenda 21) or Springhead, or £4 for non-members. It is hoped that you will join one of these registered charities online as this only costs £6/£12 or £10 per year respectively and this will save you £2 off each event.
