What we're about

https://secure.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/f/6/6/event_23153094.jpeg

Even if you are not vegan yet, our main goal is to meet other kind, compassionate, and healthy seeking people monthly at various times of the the month for potlucks and/or presentations, speakers, educational DVDs. We also have monthly dine outs, fitness excursions, book clubs and any other ideas you have regarding health, animal welfare and earth sustainablilty. When we have potlucks or snacks, please bring a plant based or vegan dish or snack (no dairy or eggs) to our potlucks so that everyone can eat all the dishes. We do not want to include eggs, dairy, or meat as we do not want to contribute to the suffering or early death of egg laying chickens or dairy cows.

THIS meetup group is for EVERYONE interested in becoming compassionate and healthy too. This is for YOU and we make this successful by joining here together to make our events successful! We NEED you to make our compassionate and healthy vegan movement move ahead!! Thank you for joining us no matter where you are on your path to a vegan lifestyle!

Morning Yoga in the Park

Online event

Morning Yoga in the Park this weeks video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEW4pOrEiKc Maureen's Happy and Free Yoga Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCggvLtnMoW4Jq3JfYaelGRw My yoga mentor and friend, Toni Eaton joins me for a lovely morning practice in the park! For years Toni led the Saturday morning yoga practice I attended each week. I loved those mornings when she gently guided us through meditation and intention to really launch into our weekends feeling one with the universe. No edges! I never thought that would change, but then COVID arrived and we are adapting. I wondered why Toni was such an amazing teacher, but I began to understand as I listened. From great suffering comes our brightest light. Toni shares her story on finding yoga when her life was shadowed with the recent loss of her child, a questioning of what mattered, a change in careers, and so much more. Yoga has turned out to be a foundation to come back to and support her through life's very tough moments. We have a dragonfly and humming bird join our practice, nature is sooo wonderful! 00:08:11 Pranayama 00:12:26 Warm up 00:24:17 Flow 00:47:18 Core 00:52:28 Unwind 00:56:56 Savasana How to do the practice? I suggest you use Airpods or wireless earphones and take your phone and yoga mat outdoors. Choose a spot of stable ground with a bit of shade and some quiet to place your mat. Bring along some water to keep you hydrated if it is warm. Although your phone might be playing the video, the instructions are the most important part, so just close your eyes and tune in. If you get a little lost during practice, glimpse at the video to reorient yourself. The best teacher is the one inside of you, listen to your own experience and care for your body as you stretch, strengthen, and unwind your stress! Would you like to connect and practice with me in a local park - social distancing included? Would you enjoy a Yogi's Zoom session. Let me know if any of these activities would help you care for yourself as we weather through our COVID experience together.

Humane Hoax Chicken Webinar

Online event

UPC's Humane Hoax Chicken Webinar Saturday, September, 12, 2020 As part of the Humane Hoax Online Summit Series, join us September 12 for the Humane Hoax Chicken Webinar for a day dedicated to our feathered friends. Learn from experts about the many issues that impact chickens who are the most exploited animal on earth, accounting for 97 percent of the farmed animals bred and killed for food. For every pig who is slaughtered, 60 chickens are killed. For every cow who is slaughtered, 190 chickens are killed. Each year approximately 35 million cows are killed in the U.S., yet 35 million chickens are killed every day. It is critical that animal advocates focus their efforts on the plight of these sensitive and complex birds. We have a prestigious line up of speakers for our Chicken Webinar, including UPC’s Karen Davis (PhD) who will enlighten us about the hidden truths of the chicken meat and egg industry as well as the humane hoax of “cage-free” and “free-range” eggs. We will learn about chicken rescue and caregiving from an expert with decades of experience, Mary Britton Clouse of Chicken Run Rescue. The webinar will feature a talk by attorney Nora Constance Marino on Kaporos, a religious ritual that causes thousands of chickens to be killed in the streets every fall. Justin VanKleeck of Triangle Chicken Advocates will address the popularity of backyard chicken-keeping as well as the resulting tragedy for roosters. A panel of devoted activists will wrap up the day ready to inspired you with ideas on how to take action for chickens. Join us for this first ever webinar dedicated to chickens! Learn about these beautiful birds, why advocates should prioritize them, and how you can help protect them. SIGN UP FOR UPC’S CHICKEN WEBINAR www.HumaneHoax.org/Chicken-Webinar
