New Moon Meditation – Stepping Into New Year

With Saba Haider

Sunday, Dec 17th, 2017

Power Edge Yoga

6:30 to 9 pm.

$30

This “New Moon Meditation with Saba Haider” will be the last of the year 2017. On this evening, we will come together to celebrate our community, our “Sangha” that we are blessed with through yoga, meditation, and mindful living. We will gather to give thanks to our friends who have been our supporters throughout the year. We will exchange gifts (even a dried leaf will do), eat sweets symbolizing the sweetness we receive in our lives from our “sangha”. We will all come together to pray and meditate for each other and the rest of the world for a brighter, more peaceful year full of growth and love. Finally, we will immerse in meditation to allow the true SELF to reveal itself to us.

Sweets, oils, journaling paper, pens will be provided to enhance the experience. Feel free to bring your own crystals, special oils, a small totem, that will become a reminder that “You Are Loved”, for the year 2018.

Gift Ideas- Dried Leaves, small rocks, twigs, thank you notes, hugs, beads, etc..

Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day for children?

Is breakfast really the most important meal of the day for children?

An article by Frances Sizer & Ellie Whitney in Nutrition Concepts and Controversies.

Elders have long held that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and for children, this bit of wisdom is now backed by science. A nutritious breakfast is a central feature of a child’s diet that supports healthy growth and development. When a child consistently skips breakfast or is allowed to choose sugary foods (candy or marshmallows) in place of nourishing ones (whole-grain cereals), the child will fail to get enough of several nutrients. Nutrients missed from a skipped breakfast won’t be “made up” at lunch and dinner, but will be left out completely that day.

Children who eat no breakfast are more likely to be overweight, snack on sweet and fatty foods, perform poorly in tasks requiring concentration, have shorter attention spans, achieve lower test scores, and be tardy or absent more often than their well-fed peers. Common sense tells us that it is unreasonable to expect anyone to study and learn when no fuel has been provided. Even children who have eaten breakfast suffer from distracting hunger by late morning. Chronically underfed children suffer more intensely.
