The East Bay Church of Religious Science hosts
Dr. Gabriel Cousens
Spiritual Nutrition: Enhancing Spiritual Life
Nourish the pulsing Heart of God emerging through and as you;
Discover lifestyle practices which optimize your spiritual life.
This event expounds upon the material found in Dr. Cousens' book, Spiritual Nutrition.
A direct experience with the teacher and author may shift everything.
Discover the secret that yogis, rishis, monks, prophets, and sages have known for thousands of years - a plant-source-only diet can offer immense support to spiritual development. While Gabriel Cousens, M.D. teaches that one cannot "eat one's way to God," a plant-source-only diet can serve as a vital foundation for the sattvic (balanced or holy) lifestyle necessary to sustain the spiritual journey. Learn why a vegan diet, properly conducted, can enhance meditation, help regulate the mind and emotions, and facilitate subtle spiritual unfolding.
Why Holistic Veganism? In this presentation Gabriel Cousens, M.D. outlines seven major ways that holistic veganism reduces "karma." He describes how veganism is our forgotten and remembered human heritage, the key to our survival in the present, and the evolutionary choice for our future. Drawing on his expertise as a rabbi, a medical doctor, and a visionary, Dr. Cousens provides a spiritual, medical, and philosophical framework for understanding the nutritional, ethical, and metaphysical dimensions of a live, plant-source-only diet.

This event's proceeds benefit Tree of Life Foundation's (founded by Dr. Cousens) grassroots natural healing work in Nigeria and Ghana, and the building of an Orphanage and Teaching Center in Nogales, México. At this center we will train, free of charge, Mexican and Spanish speaking semi professionals and farm workers to be health educators in the phase one diet, holistic veganism and diabetes prevention. Our goal is to provide health and nutrition for all people who otherwise could not afford it.
