Mandala Book Club- In Defense of Food, An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan
Let’s gather, Yogis and non-yogis alike, for good reads to inspire conscious introspection and thoughtful conversation!
The Mandala Book Club is a way to take this practice off the mat and into our community. To raise our awareness of the issues and challenges of our locale and to hear from the people working hard to overcome them. Each month will be hosted by a different local community organization who inspires us.
Our December host is The Springs Food Pantry. They have selected Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food, An Eater’s Manifesto.
“I chose Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food, An Eater’s Manifesto because one of the main missions of our food pantry is to offer nutritious choices to our recipients. Each week we offer choices such as eggs, oatmeal, fish, chicken, fresh fruit and vegetables. We even have a nutritionist come once a month to show us how to prepare wonderful “real food” meals on a tight budget. This book addresses how we have been duped by the food and nutrition industries into believing we can be healthily nourished out of a package!” -Anne McCann, Springs Food Pantry
Mandala Book Club is in partnership with The Amagansett Free library and facilitated by librarian, Evan Harris. It is free and open to everyone! We meet at Mandala Yoga one Thursday each month from 7:00-8:30pm.
This is a free gathering but please sign up so we know how much soup to make.
