FW: [PathOfHealth] Monoeating and Fasting: Experiential Learning on the PathOfHealth (9/13-18)
- In case anyone is interested - I am going to be participating - it is a great deal for how much attention and information you receive.Also, if someone cannot truly afford the $95, contact them directly - they have dedicated their lives to service and would never turn someone away because of lack of funds...I can assure you that.Sincerely,Joy-----Original Message-----

Subject: [PathOfHealth] Monoeating and Fasting: Experiential Learning on the PathOfHealth (9/13-18)
Before watermelon season ends, we would like to offer a dynamic learning experience involving monoeating and fasting. We begin with our next teleconference (#6) on Wednesday, September 13, which remains free and open to anyone. Then, during the 5 days that follow, we offer additional teleconferences and private coaching as you experience a 3-day watermelon (or other fruit) diet, followed by a 1-day water fast and 1-day reentry transition
We both believe deeply that experience is the best teacher in many things. Although we can write back and forth, sharing information and describing experiences, for many people the message really “sinks in” best through personal experience. We seek to nurture such learning through this program.
We propose to offer you this learning experience in exchange for your sending us, as an even-exchange transaction, 95 USD. This includes all the teleconferences and recordings, as well as additional private conversation time if someone is having problems and needs help. In other words, if you experience a problem, we will provide a means where you can call in and receive timely personal support. In harmony with our own principle of service, we will not exclude anyone for lack of funds.
From yesterday’s post entitled “Balance, Harmony, and Exchange”:
Exchange means giving and receiving reciprocally, such that what is given and what is received are perceived as equivalents; hence, exchange transactions are transactions of barter, not of sale or purchase.
Exchange requires a common sense of value, a sense of balance shared among the parties to the exchange. And exchange typically requires a sense of harmony among the parties. That is, a genuine exchange can only take place when every party involved enters the exchange (the agreement, or contract) freely, in an atmosphere of peacefulness and without duress of any kind.
Please note that we offer this monodiet/fasting program only to PathOfHealth group participants and their family/household members and friends. If you have questions, please write to us in the group or privately, as you prefer. We hope you decide to join us!
Best to all,
Elchanan and Bob
