Workshop Title: Achieving Healthy Living in a Practical Manner
Dr. Akua Woolbright, Ph.D.
Senior Healthy Eating and Wellness Educator at Whole Foods Market
Saturday, September 20, 2014
9:00 am - Noon
All are welcome! Join us for our practical and informative
seminar designed for students, clergy, and lay persons.
This course will present practical actions steps for you to live in your ideal body, and have the ability to live your best life? Our speaker is an expert and will
discuss the impact and power of food to prevent and reverse disease. You will leave with a new awareness of how much processed and refined foods we
actually consume, and discover the life-saving benefits of shifting to a whole foods diet.
Four Pillars to Healthy Eating: Participants will learn how to identify the types of foods that will help them feel better, look younger, gain more energy, prevent and reverse disease, and possibly live longer. We will carefully distinguish between real food and fake food stuff, and how our bodies respond to each.
Decoding Food Labels: Participants will learn how to accurately read food labels and make wiser food choices. This class is interactive with each table of participants reading labels and presenting their findings to the group.
Participants will need to be seated at tables, if at all possible, and I will need an additional long table up front, a projector, and a screen. I will be showing PowerPoint presentations.
Workshop will be held at

The Gospel of Water in Detroit:
Why Halting the Shutoffs is a Spiritual Matter
Dr. James Perkinson will lead
A Water Teach-In
Tuesday, July 15, 2014
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This event is free and open to the public.
Thousands of Detroiters who have delinquent accounts have been scheduled for shutoffs in the coming months. Scores of commercial, business and entertainment venues who owe tens of millions of dollars have been excluded. A Canadian group, the Council of Canadians, have blasted the Detroit plan. The United Nations has called the action a "clear violation of human rights." Dr. James Perkinson was among a group of citizens arrested by Detroit police on July 10 for protesting the shutoffs. He has been released on bail. Because of the severe consequences faced by families without access to water, more protests will follow as citizens become aware of the details and hardships caused by this tragic action. Below you will find media link regarding the July 10, 2014.
