In viewing ethical eating as spiritual practice, let's share our thoughts and practices about food and its impact on animals, the environment, health, and our own spiritual path. Carl Sagan: "It takes an entire Universe to make an apple pie."

While I don't intend to evanglize my choice to others, I recently made the choice to become vegan.  Animals were there for me at times in my life when no one else was and I feel this is my way of repaying the spiritual debt I owe I love them!!!

Food is given to all of us; not some of us. I am grateful for the food I have. Eating well and with care for others to eat well is important to me. Eating is also a spiritual exercise...

In Honolulu we've been energized by the DVD on how Cuba became 80% organic. So impressive on not only what it did for the health of the people but how they experienced 'community' in new can get the DVD, THE POWER of COMMUNITY How Cuba Survived Peak Oil at

I just helped to launch a Local Food Network in our valley the other night, the Nambucca Valley. It went really well, the interest is there. Many of us are starting to see eating local as vital to the earth, to our bodies, and to our communities. Our goal is to make local food accessible and affordable to all by supporting our local growers and local retailers who support local agriculture. Like you say Lucy, eating local does make sense, but you have to track it down and then cook it. This is the difficulty in todays global market and busy life. It sure makes eating and shopping feel better though.

I saw the film Food, Inc and was educated once again on the power of corporate food production and its impact on the way we live and eat. Eating local foods makes so much sense. I want to pay more attention and eat better and more wholesome food. It takes initiative and creativity in this place and time.

Happy to have found this group. Hope I can participate adequately.

My quandary is always -- balancing what seems to work for me physically with ethical eating. It's easier where I live now and it's pretty easy to know where my food comes from, but fish really works for me but I don't want to contribute to overfishing. . .

I don't know anything about logistics, but would like the group to keep going. I will restart the group if no one else puts their hand up. What does starting a group entail, just responding more often than most?

Sharon has left us, indeed. She actually spent a few weeks back and forthing about it, and decided to slip away quietly. She was very concerned about the groups she commenced, not wanting them to disappear. She was emailing me each day about her decision. She felt much welcomed here and very much interested, but was torn between this and another similar group she has long been part of, and felt she was doing a disservice to both by splitting her attention.

I'm surprised (happily) to see that the group remains intact, after I made myself an admin of it before Sharon left. There's not much that has happened yet - would it be best to simply restart it? Who would be interested to do this?

Hi eaters!
I just added an article about food from The Onion, which is satirical, here.

Depending on your sense of humor, of course...

Anyway, I posted it there becasue, as John alludes to below, eating is the primary way we engage the world, and therefore ought to be a field for our spiritual practice - so we'll be going into that somewhat at the class in Asheville.
