Book Group

September 20 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

Book Group

FREE and open to the public

This group is for anyone interested in reading (or re-reading!) a broad range of books relevant to our yoga practice and exploring themes related to yoga. Our intention  is to create a stronger sense of community at Yoga in ME and to broaden our understanding of yoga beyond the physical practice.

Since our book club is not dissecting literary concepts, there is no need to be intimidated. It will be like hanging out and talking through your ideas on life with great company who help you to expand your ideas. We are less interested in whether you’ve read the book than in your participation in stimulating discussion about any issues the book might raise.

Don’t miss one of the best conversations and opportunities for discussion with others interested in deepening their understanding of yoga, enlightenment, healthy eating, and life in general.

 

No registration required and there is no fee.

Please bring a healthy snack and/or beverage to share.


 

This Month’s Book

How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease

by

Michael Greger M.D.

 

Even though it was repeatedly recommended to me by people I really respect, I avoided reading this book for years. The name really put me off.

Despite the name, this books is packed with practical information on what to eat to feel better and live a healthier life. And, what I really like about it, is that Greger backs up his recommendations with peer-reviewed, scientific research.

Although I mostly have eaten plant-based , whole foods my entire life, this book gave me the tools and the confidence to start eating an exclusively whole-food, plant-based diet. And, I have to say I feel even better than before.

Whether you want to switch to a plant-based, whole-food diet, or improve your food choices in more subtle ways, this book is for you.

Sneak Peak: “So, which foods are good for you? This sounds like a simple enough question. In truth, I’ve found it difficult to answer. Whenever I’m asked at a lecture whether a certain food is healthy or not, I have to invariabley reply, ‘Compared to what?” For example, are eggs healthy? Compare to oatmeal, definitely not. But compared to the sausage links next to them on the breakfast platter? Yes.”
