Food Yoga Featured in Veritas Magazine
Leading consciousness magazine, VERITAS, published a three page article on Food Yoga written by director of Food for Life Global, Paul Rodney Turner (Priya Vrata). The article is an introduction to food yoga, but also shares many of Paul's early experiences as a monk and humanitarian, including his work during the 2005 Tsunami relief in Sri Lanka.
"The path of food yoga is about reconnecting with your food in such a way that it nourishes your body, mind and soul. This is I believe is a major flaw in most lifestyle or nutrition programs being espoused today.
My background as a monk and my volunteer work for Food for Life Global, have taught me just how powerful food is as a uniter and healer of our body, mind and soul. In fact, the mission for the charity is not to feed hungry people, but rather, to unite the world through pure food. A food yogi is one who lives a balanced and conscientious life fueled by the uniting power of pure foods that have been prepared with loving intention.
Food yoga is, in essence, a discipline that embraces all spiritual paths by accepting one core truth – that food in its most pure form is divine and therefore an excellent medium for spiritual purification." - (Excerpt from article)
The 13th edition of VERITAS magazine is available online and through most newsagents. (http://www.theveritasmagazine.com)
On October 20th, Paul will conduct a one day Food Yoga immersion workshop at the Unity of Melbourne centre. The goal of the Food Yoga one day immersion workshop is to inspire people to live and eat more consciously, by making their food choices and relationship with food an integral part of their spiritual practice.
The Workshop will include a raw vegan gourmet demonstration. (For more information please visit: http://foodyogi.org)
