From the Harmony in Living series
Fasting, which typically means to go without food for an extended period, allows the body to have a good ‘house-cleaning’ and a rest. It is a way to good health, long life, and can aid recovery from certain illnesses. All the major religious traditions apply it in their spiritual practice. Gandhi used it, making the personal political. Modern medicine having re-discovered fasting, has now given it a stamp of approval.
In this session, learn the practical steps of fasting for your health, weight-loss or recovery from dis-ease. Experience the nourishing effect of art exercises and try a guided meditation to use in your preparation for fasting.
