6.00 - Jill Swyers - TAKING CARE OF OURSELVES: Nourishing With Plant-Based Foods

Many of us are affected by life's every day stresses, indulging in unsuitable eating habits as an escape. Taking care of Body, Mind and Spirit can seem an impossible task.

So we start with small steps – by nourishing Body which leads to a strengthening of Mind and a soothing of Spirit.

Living Foods and Raw Foods are an important part of this process, but there is no “One Size Fits All” solution. It all comes down to Adding to One's Lifestyle, 

One Step at a Time with Guidance, and so at our own pace we can learn to take care of our own individual needs. Above all remember “Happiness is found along the way not at the end of the road”…

2.00 - Kerry McCarthy & John Robb - Meat is Murder and Other Songs

Did Morrissey convince you that Meat is Murder? Or was it Paul McCartney, Crass, Moby, Chrissie Hynde or another musician who won you over to vegetarianism? Are you a Straight Edge vegan punk, a reggae lover following an Ital diet, or were you newly inspired by Beyoncé and Jay Z's 22 day vegan tryout? Can musicians help save the whale, stop the badger cull, persuade people to go cruelty free? Join us for a Pop and Politics event, chaired by vegan musician John Robb, to debate the influence of music on what we eat and how we treat animals.
