SUNDAY

11.00 - 11.45 - Audrey Grace - Why You And Everyone You Know Need Minerals...

Minerals support your normal growth and protection against disease in your body. Your cells need the lions share, 60% minerals in order to function as mother nature intended.

Are you getting these minerals in your diet? If no why not?

There has been a huge decline of minerals in the soil. The consequence of this has a huge
impact on your health. Dr Linus Pauling, twice Nobel Prize Winner, stated that every sickness,
every ailment and every disease can be traced back to a mineral deficiency.

As a Vegan/Vegetarian, what are the answers?

1.00 - 1.45 - Ben Shaberman - My Vegan Girlfriend Loves Her Cats More Than Me (But It's OK)

A humorous, insightful presentation on vegan life and relationships, while paying homage to the dedicated women who drive the movement and influenced Ben. Ben wil also read an excerpt from his new book, Jerry's Vegan Women - a fun, poignant, and occasionally steamy collection of fictional stories that follows the adventures of Jerry Zuckerman as he makes his way through the shelters, sanctuaries, and bedrooms of an eclectic assortment of vegan women. The book is by no means a vegan manifesto. Rather, its characters reveal the virtues, imperfections, and idiosyncrasies of those who go meat-free. It's stories about love, work life, and the search for identity and meaning of those committed to the vegan lifestyle.

2.00 - 2.45 - Martin Stepek - Vegan Mindfulness

In this talk, Martin will explore the wider ideas of not harming oneself as well as other sentient beings, and a mindfulness attitude towards those who do eat meat or run organisations vegans deem to be unethical, cruel, or murderous.

3.00 - 3.45 - Tim Shieff - Change your Water, Change your Life

As an athlete switching to a vegan diet I noticed a lot of benefits in recovery, focus and general well being. When I got my water right however I noticed the same benefits with even more consistency. This talk is aimed to show you that not all water is equal and how the subtle differences between the bottled, tap and pure water we drink makes huge implications on our health, fitness and well being. Essentially exploring one theory into why Veganism sometimes works so well and why sometimes it fails. I aim to inform you of my personal experience and research into H20 and how a simple shift of awareness in something so many of us already do can have great benefits in our quality of life
