In our first tea-talk, following Alla’s talk on “Nutrition and Body Based Stress”,  James will explore the “art of living well” and introduce some of the hidden SOS aspects for holistic and healthy living. Everyone is encouraged to bring their personal and professional talents and experience to the conversation!



What causes disease ( body, mind, spirit). The four legged stool.

Food and Diet myths ( contradictions and mis-information)

We are what we eat: “Let food be  thy medicine and medicine be thy food” – Hippocrates  5th BC

Eating For Health – S.O.U.L food

Feel Good – Feel Bad Foods – the effects of foods on our brain, mood, energy,metabolism

Weight Gain – Weight Loss- Fad Diets and why they don’t work

The case of the missing nurtrients: What happens to our body?


“If your life isn’t fulfilled, your stomach can never supply what’s missing”  Depak Chopra




Mind Maintains itself in opposites, in opposition, right?

Do Underlying beliefs cause and support ill health and relationships?

Life - the stories we tell ourselves and each other, about it.

We learn by imitation, imagination and conceptual labelling. What’s the role of memory?

The cause of stress is our personal and collective belief in thinking we’re separate – our divorce from reality. Missing Vitamin R7 (Reality)

Our Natural Well-Being (R7) has seven elements: Facts, Beauty, Love, Joy, Harmony, Peace, Grace




What happens when change descends upon us – comfort eating, drugs, alcohol etc

Why is it so difficult to change habits?

The Fight versus dealing with reality ( cancer, disease, death, divorce, job loss etc).

To the degree we resist constant change we experience disharmony,disease and suffering?

Life and the living of it is always fresh, here and now only. Perhaps?

What are Living facts?

 Being what you are  and loving what is.

In Subsequent “Teas” ( dates to be announced) we’ll expand on the SOS themes that most interest the group -  with an aim to make the takeaway practical and useful, both personally and professionally.
