If you eat you should watch this, otherwise its not really that important or interesting. Food Inc exposes the factory farm model of modern agri-business in all its glorious issues. From GMO (you are a guinea pig in biggest experiment in human history), to factory farms, animal welfare to workers rights…Its all a bit overwhelming, really.
But ignorance is NOT bliss, when it comes to what we are eating. It wont go away till we make more informed decisions on what we eat. As many have stated, we vote for what type of agricultural system we support every time we lift a fork to our mouths. Yes eating is a nutritional act, but is is also an economic, and political one as well. What we buy to eat determines our health, the health of our enviornment, our political policies, and drives the economy as well.
And of course, since your at GZ, you know our view. Eating is also a spiritual act, because there is no more intimate way we interact with our world than food. And what we eat affects our spiritual progression towards the Divine.
So watch it already!
Salam and Peace,
For any of you even close to the Bay Area, we’d really recommend taking time out to attend these seminars by Hakim Archuletta. He is a natural, homeopathic healer and a very engaging speaker, regardless of your religious affiliation or slant, they will undoubtedly be very valuable and thought provoking sessions. We also recommend his DVD set from Meccacentric Natural Health and the Islamic Tradition.
We hope the organizers record it so we can all benefit!

How to Treat Your Family and Friends for Common, Acute Conditions

Sometimes, we can avoid the need for a visit to the doctor with a basic knowledge of some common acute conditions and the homeopathic remedies most often prescribed.
Sidi Hakim offers an intensive course teaching the basic principles of homeopathy, understanding an acute illness, injury, emotional crisis, how to take a patient’s case, how to find the correct remedy and how to administer the correct dosage.
Conditions to be discussed include flus, common colds, respiratory infections, sore throats, ear infections, teething, fevers, nausea and vomiting, allergic reactions, acute emotional trauma, and first aid. A special emphasis will be given to a thorough understanding of when a condition requires professional care. Creating a home remedy kit and a community pharmacy collective will be addressed.
