4:00 - Marlene Watson-Tara - Living with the Seasons

‘Living with the Seasons’ is inspired by the Macrobiotic way of life. This system of health care and personal development originated in Japan but is based on a traditional understanding of diet, health and well-being recommended by ancient peoples from all over the world. It is a modern interpretation that is not therapeutic but directed more to general daily use and health maintenance. Eating a healthy vegan diet doesn't need to be complicated or boring.  This is a simple and common sense approach to leading edge nutrition that supports the health of humans, the environment and our animal kingdom.

5:00 - Bill Tara - Eating As If Life Matters: Food and Human Ecology

The issues of food and nutrition are riddled with confusion.  Much of the uncertainty is the result of a limited view of diet and its’ impact on the environmental, social and health of our society. Human Ecology takes us into a new paradigm of nutrition that reveals a sustainable, healthy and compassionate way of choosing our food.

1:00 - William RobertsonThe value of a compassionate food choice in any adversity

I will give an introduction to my life journey from the foods I ate growing up, lifestyle choices that led me to prison, solitary and a life with mental illness to what I've did to transform that whole lifestyle. To lose 9 stone, become a 100 mile ultra runner and take the marathon time from 4:53 to 2:55.
