Holistic Living - Towards the World Where Humanity and the Planet Enjoy Peace, Harmony and Health

Mother Nature has always intended that we live in harmony and peace, and do what is best for our mind, body and Self. Making a conscious effort towards self-improvement is a small step to a better life and in turn the world. It means taking care of and nurturing our whole being, restoring the mind, body and Self to a balanced state of energy. Living our life in a way that is both natural to us and the world in which we live. A holistic lifestyle benefits us physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually: watching our diet, keep our mind and body active through the practice of yoga and meditation, but that's not all of what is involved with a holistic lifestyle. On a physical level, it's about learning to listen to our bodies. On an emotional level, it's about keeping a positive mind frame. Letting go of the negative energies and using our energies towards things that add value to our life. On a mental level, it's about embracing the fact that each one of us is unque. On a spiritual level, it's about spending time in nature and finding a deeper connection within ourselves. Consistency, regularity and self-discipline is key in living a holistic lifestyle and keeping a positive outlook and attitude.

Sierra Club Dinner Talk

Sierra Club Bay Area.jpg

“Veganism: Healthy for People, Healthy for the Planet”

Thursday, September 26, no-host cocktails/social hour—6 pm, dinner—7:00, program—8:00, Berkeley Yacht Club on the Berkeley Marina, one block north of the west end of University Avenue (ample free park­ing is available in the Marina parking lots).

Why is the Vegan movement the fastest growing social justice movement in the world today? It is because Veganism is the foundation of any credible solution to our myriad health and environmental crises. A whole-foods, plant-based Vegan diet can mitigate and reverse 14 of the 15 leading causes of death in Western countries. A Vegan World would free up one-third of the land area of the planet to be returned to forests, sequestering the excess carbon in the atmosphere, reversing climate change, while simultaneously restoring habitat for wildlife, halting biodiversity loss. People are going Vegan for their Health, for the Environment, for the Animals and most importantly, for Love. Without Love, none of the other reasons stick, but with Love, all of them combine to make the Vegan transition, one of the most important steps that people have taken in their entire lives.

Join us as Dr. Sailesh Rao, Executive Director of Climate Healers, chronicles his Vegan journey and explains why the Vegan movement is catching fire all around the world. Learn about the Vegan World 2026! project, which aims to turn the whole world Vegan within the next seven years! We will be serving a delicious and nutritious Vegan dinner, including savory "meaty" Vegan entrees, catered by a specialty Vegan company, whose representatives will also be in attendance.  Come see what all the excitement is about, and try out gourmet Vegan cuisine!

This talk advances the hypothesis that an ecosystem’s role for human beings as the “Thermostat Species” is in harmony with scientific facts as well as with the foundational myths of major cultures. With strong scientific evidence, it shows why we need to transform to a largely Vegan World by 2026 to continue this ecosystems role as compassionate “Climate Healers”, or risk our own extinction.
