A donation-based workshop to support conservation & social justice
Saturday, March 31st
In the Outer Sunset, SF
with Charity Khan & Diana Oppenheim
Have you considered transitioning to a plant-based diet but aren’t sure how to do so and maintain health and wellness? Are you concerned about the environmental impact of eating meat and dairy? Are you moved to action when confronted with the animal suffering that is a natural consequence an animal-based diet?
Our relationship to food can be complicated. The food we choose to eat can have direct impact— on our own bodies, mind and spirit and also in our communities and the environment at large. It is such an integral part of life, worthy of exploration, healing and action.
Come to this workshop to explore, in a safe and non-judgmental container:
— The facts around the impact of animal agriculture on climate
— Health and wellness as it relates to a plant-based diet
— Yoga and Buddhist philosophies of non-harming and interconnection
— Your own inner dialogue and process around these issues
— Practice meditation and yoga
— Enjoy a simple, nourishing plant-based meal in community
— Hear Diana and Charity’s personal stories of transitioning to a plant-based diet
— Have time for sharing and inquiry in small groups and introspectively
— Set intentions
— journal and pen
— yoga mat
— meditation cushion if you have one (we will have some cushions and chairs on hand)
— water bottle and mug for tea
— OPTIONAL: something simple (plant-based) to share as part of our community lunch

Charity Kahn is a songwriter, musician, teaching artist and mindfulness instructor based in San Francisco, CA. She has released seven albums of award-winning music and is the founder of The JAM Experience, sharing music, movement and mindfulness through her beloved family classes, camps and concerts. Charity also combines her passions for the Dharma and social and environmental justice in meditation classes, workshops, circles and concerts for grown-ups. She has been a practicing vegan since Mother’s Day, 2012.
Diana Oppenheim is an in-it-for-life yogi who considers herself a bridge. The inner world and the outer wold are connected and the practice of yoga is a chance to sift through the murkiness of both in a way that empowers you. Diana works hard to create a quiet, contemplative and focused space that is inclusive of everyone. She teaches methodically yet leaves room for intuition. Aside from yoga, her passion for direct action, environmental and social justice and being immersed and in awe of nature take up most of her time. She has had an interesting path toward veganism, and has fully committed to transition recently in December of 2017.
