Our Inner Critic – The Connection between Self-Compassion, Emotional Resiliency & Mental Health
With Kathrin Brunner BA, CNP, RYT
Research has found that critical self-talk is related to lower empathy and higher rates of anxiety. In this session you’ll learn how to identify the ‘Inner Critic’ and how to overcome it through the practice of self-compassion. The ability to be kind to ourselves leads to improved emotional resiliency and better interpersonal connections. You’ll leave the session with self-assessment tools as well as several practical exercises.

Optimal Plant Based Eating Approaches
With Jacqueline Steinert, BA (Hons), CNP
You are what you eat. But today, the nutritional landscape is populated with trendy diets that range from all meat to no meat to low fat to high fat to low carb to high carb. Confusion abounds. What has been clinically proven is that plant based eating is both ethically and healthfully beneficial, especially when incorporating abundant antioxidant rich fresh fruits and vegetables, coupled with healthy fats and quality proteins. Besides being highly nutrient dense and powerfully preventative in disease, plant based eating is generally more economical and environmentally sustainable, reducing our dietary carbon footprint.
Plant-rich protocols consist mostly or entirely of plant based foods, which are plant derived foods such as vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and fruits. On top of that, quality matters. Whole unprocessed plant foods of excellent quality provide bioavailable nutrients that fuel and balance our health optimally. Join this lecture to discover what an optimal plant based plate looks like, critical macros and micros to incorporate into the protocol, and why we must focus on whole plant foods in order to achieve plant based benefits including improved metabolic measures in health and disease, encompassing cognitive and physical wellbeing!
