Everyone knows good nutrition supports your overall health, but few realize that certain foods - power foods - can protect your brain and optimize its function, and even dramatically reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Reading is an empowering activity. It is especially powerful when it is a shared experience with a community of like-minded people. 6D Book Club brings people together in an international digital community with a common interest in learning about healthy, balanced living.
Power Foods for the Brain will meet once weekly beginning in July for six weeks. There are two groups available - one on Thursdays (beginning 13 July) - on on Saturdays (beginning 15 July). Please choose ONE group for your registrations (directions below) and be sure to confirm the meeting times as they are not the same for each group.
THURSDAY GROUP will meet at 20:00EST/17:00PST (8:00 PM EST/ 5:00 PM PST)
SATURDAY GROUP will meet at 11:00AM EST/8:00AM PST
Though participants are not required to attend meetings each week, due to limited spaces in each group, please ensure the meeting day/time chosen suits your schedule. We would ask that all participants be able to attend most of the meetings, thank you.
