3:15-4:00 - What are We Hungry For? With Lisa J Weiss, Registered Code Model Coach
Have you ever found yourself eating, and notice you’re still hungry? What if you’re hungry for something else...something beyond food? Food is often used as the distraction from what is moving from deep within. A murmur of a call, for ‘something' we hunger for that will shift how we engage our life. This conversation is going to focus on a different kind of hunger. One that calls us to move in a new direction, make a different choice, and to feed ourselves beyond the food we put in our mouth.
Join us to:
-Be introduced a new way to consider what you are hungry for.
-Discover how our bodies process information.
-Learn how to relax into the feelings/sensations that move within.
-Practice a new way of engaging the information that presents from the hunger within.
Audience members will be entered into a draw for one of four copies of "When the Horse Dies Get Off...and Stop Dragging it Around", and will have an opportunity to register for upcoming conversation experiences.
SUNDAY MARCH 25TH
10:30-11:30 - Sugar Freedom! The Secrets to living a life of freedom around food, With Sarah Roberts of Sarah Talks Food
For many of us, food has become our enemy instead of our friend. In this talk, Sarah shares how her addiction to alcohol transferred to sugar once she got sober and she reveals how prioritizing her health made all the difference in her life. She teaches us that creating awareness about what’s going on inside and outside of our bodies helps us create a less complicated relationship around food and results in a life of freedom.
Join us and discover:
-What’s really going on in the food industry and in our homes
-What we can do to begin to create a lifestyle we love
-How we can make lasting change and truly create more freedom in our lives
Participants will get a discount to Sarah’s 6 Week Sugar Freedom eCourse and will be entered into a draw to win a signed copy of her book!
1:00-2:00 - Optimize your Digestion, Optimize your Health! With Natasha Villeneuve CNP
Gas, bloating, indigestion, constipation, IBS, food intolerances.... these are all signs that your digestive system is struggling. Good digestion is the foundation to health. When digestion is compromised we cannot properly absorb essential, health-promoting nutrients, nor can we eliminate toxins effectively. This often leads to further health challenges such as inflammation, autoimmune conditions, skin problems, headaches, hormonal imbalances, depression, fatigue and mind fog. The good news is...Once we eliminate the cause and support the healing process, the body has an incredible ability to heal itself!
Join us to Learn:
-The basic anatomy and physiology of the digestive system (how it works!)
-The link between digestive disorders and other health problems
-Common dietary and lifestyle causes of digestive disorders
-Simple tips on how to dramatically improve digestion & overall health
Several NFP door prizes will be drawn throughout the presentation!
