Isn’t it great to call Hawaii home? While the rest of the country is bundling up for frightful weather, this Christmas we continue to be blessed with warm sunshine in paradise. As we again approach another holiday season with excitement, we are pleased to invite you to a variety of wonderful lectures and workshops that we have planned for this December.

December 8-10th we are pleased to welcome Burt Goulding, who will be presenting 3 separate talks on the Secrets of Natural Healing. There will be a different talk in Honolulu, Kailua and Kapolei. Burt’s lectures last year were a huge hit and are sure to be this year as well.

December 12th the excitement continues with a free lecture from one of our favorite local doctors, Dr. Terry Shintani, MD. He has just released his new book, “The Peace Diet” and it’s awesome! Dr. Shintani will be giving a free lecture in our new Honolulu community room on the 12th from 5-7pm. I will be joining him to give a cooking demo that reflects his message on eating for peace of body, mind and spirit. You’ll want to come early to make sure you get a seat.

On the 20th you can join us in Kailua for Coffee Talk with Alyssa Moreau. She will talk about macrobiotic cooking for the winter. Alyssa will also do something very unique for Coffee Talk: conduct a cooking demo. Refreshments will be served and we will offer 10% off our organic espresso bar.

Finally, we end the year with a Guest Chef cooking class with Alyssa Moreau in Kapolei. She is going to continue her successful series in gluten-free baking December 29th from 6-7:30pm. Classes are $30 and are sure to fill up quickly.

All of these events can be found on our website Events Page. If you have any questions please contact us at 947-3249 or you can email me at mamat@downtoearth.org.

We wish you a beautiful holiday season and hope to spend some time with you at one of our upcoming events. Until we meet again in 2015, Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy Holidays from all of us at Down to Earth!
