Behind the Scenes: Communal Book Read!

Often times a book is just what one person needs to escape into a fantasy, another world, or a far away reality.

20071115-maybeBehind the scenes is making a new addition to its dancehealthier edition.  Behind the mirror, outside the barre, and even secretly in your hidden place in the studio (come on, we all have that spot), a book may come in handy.  Dancehealthier, in its mission to further integrate both dance and health, wants to start a communal book read.  On a health topic. Duh!

Dancehealthier has chosen a book, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals written by: Michael Pollan to start with.  By all means, it’s a controversial one, but in all honesty. . . when it comes to the foods that we eat, things can get complicated.

“Michaeal Pollan’s outstanding The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals is a wide-ranging invitation to think through the moral ramifications of our current eating habits.  Pollan undertakes a pilgrim’s progress along modern food chains, setting standards for ethical eating.  ” – The New Yorker

“With the skill of a professional detective, Michael Pollan explores the worlds of industrial farming, organic and sustainable agriculture, and even hunting and gathering to determine the links of food chains: how food gets from its sources in nature to our plates.  The findings he reports in this book are often unexpected, disturbing, even horrifying, but they are facts every eater should know.  This is an engaging book, full of information that is most relevant to conscious living.” – Dr. Andrew Weil

**  If interested in participating, please notify dancehealthier at no later than 2 weeks from today (February 6).  To get started, dancehealthier will then share a compounded e-mail to those interested on February 6. For the next month, we will simply discuss the book, share ideas/opinions, answer discussion questions, and have fun too. If you know of anyone that may be interested, please share along.  More the merrier.
