How You Eat:
ADON will help you eat in such a way that fuels you and increases your vitality. We’ll enjoy a Lifestyle Cleanse from Beaming Superfood Cafe, while investigating the idea that eating well isn’t about counting calories, but about tuning into your body and how it responds to what you consume– aka Conscious Consumption. Enjoy a SLOW FOOD practice, and learn why taking your time to eat is good for your body and mind!
How You Think:
Guest speaker Dr. Jessica Matthews will offer her renowned talk “Reclaiming Wellness”! The word ‘wellness’ has become commonplace, yet it’s widespread use is riddled with misconceptions and conflicting opinions as to what it truly means to “live well.” Meanwhile, people continue to experience deteriorating physical and mental health, increasingly stressful living conditions, unrealistic societal expectations, and a growing disconnect from realizing their full potential and innate purpose. The time has come to evolve from simply surviving day-to-day life to truly thriving in all facets of life—physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and socially. And the fact of the matter is, the most current science validates what many thought leaders have long believed to be true—that cultivating the conditions for positive health and high-level wellness is ultimately an inside job.
