Event description

Description

In this class, we will discuss the importance of what scientists are now calling our second brain: our gut. This is a remarkable organ with some 500 million neurons. This organ works in conjunction with the trillion or so gut bacteria. We will thus be focusing on the importance of having good gut bacteria, otherwise known as probiotics. We will discuss which foods feed good gut bacteria and which feed bad bacteria, and how bad gut flora cause disease.

The food preparation will section will focus on fermentation and its various manifestations. You will learn how to make kombucha and ferment vegetables. I will even bring some scobies (symbiotic cultures of bacteria and yeast) for people to take home and make their own kombucha.

In the exercise part of the class, we will continue with the learning of the Bikram Yoga poses and how to incorporate them into the Dan Millman workout. The focus this week will be on the balancing postures and further developing leg strength and flexibility. Please where loose clothing and bring a yoga mat or a large towel.

The mindfulness section will be all about how to “Trust Your Intuition,” the sixth gateway in our series on personal growth and everyday enlightenment.

This workshop is part of Science of Diet and Health inner transition series presented in conjunction with Transition NDG and the Wholistic Living Institute. It is taught by Dr. Steven R. Scott, who has a PhD in religious studies and has done extensive research on the relationship between diet and health. For more info contact WhoLivIn@gmail.com.
