Book Club Begins March 5 – Estes Park Trail-Gazette

“The Being Awareness Book Club” is a recurring series co-hosted by Estes Valley Library and Salud Family Health Centers. The featured book this spring is “If the Buddha Came to Dinner” by Halé Sofia Schatz and Shira Shaiman.

The three-part discussion takes place on Saturday mornings this season: March 5, April 2 and May 14 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Library. Participants should plan to attend all three sessions.

The authors ask the question: “If the Buddha came to dinner, what would you serve?” Fast food? A frozen meal quickly microwaved? Chances are, they say, you’ll be feeding your guest of honor a delicious meal prepared with love and care. Next time you dine, what will you eat?

Sweet, wise and humorous, the authors show a way to the heart of food – our own inner wisdom that knows exactly how to feed the whole self. With a blend of inspiration and practical wisdom, “If the Buddha Came to Dinner” includes guidelines for selecting vital foods, ideas for keeping your energy balanced throughout the day, a cleansing schedule, and over 60 recipes. to awaken the palate.

Discussions will be moderated by Meemee Lahman, Behavioral Health Clinician for Salud Family Health.
