Jack Kornfield: "Mindfulness, Love and Graceful Living in Fast Times"

Join us for an evening with Jack Kornfield PhD, one of the senior Buddhist teachers in America. Modern neuroscience and mindfulness have come together to show how we can live a wise and compassionate life. This is what the Dalai Lama calls learning "the science of mind." With clear teachings, systematic practices and practical stories we will explore the essence of Buddhist training, developing simple and necessary tools for navigating modern times with wisdom. We will learn to apply the foundations of mindfulness to our body, feelings, mind and relationships.

Marion Nestle | Advocacy for Healthier Food Systems: From Clicks to Occupy

From hunger to obesity to industrial agriculture, modern-day food systems have no lack of “wicked” problems involving social, economic, and political—as well as health—dimensions.   Although these problems present formidable challenges, advocates participating in today’s food movements can draw on the lessons learned from social movements of the past to define advocacy goals, targets, and methods; to engage allies; and to monitor progress.   These lessons can be used to improve the chance of success of current advocacy campaigns.
