Spirituality and Plant-Based Diets: A Waterside Chat with Blair Nelsen

Event description: 

August 6, 2020
Online on ZOOM at 7pm EDT

What does spirituality have to do with what you put on your plate? Do you have questions about plant-based diets that you’ve never had a chance to ask?
 Join Waterspirit’s Blair Nelsen for an informal, interactive conversation about spiritualized eating and plant-based diets. Blair will hold a non-judgmental space in which to answer questions and share from her personal experiences as a practitioner and mother. She will offer stories about the challenges she has experienced being vegan in two different cultures, as well as insights about the spiritual underpinnings of her lifestyle choice.

Blair A. R. Nelsen is Executive Director of Waterspirit, a nonprofit center for spiritual ecology sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace. She holds a Master of Arts in Religion from Yale Divinity School and a BA in Environmental Studies from Brown University. Her diet has been plant-based since 2012. She is also the mother of a nine-year-old vegan child.
