The Health and Wellness working group puts out a new podcast every Thursday, revolving around holistic and natural health. To listen to this podcast from Reimagine TCWAC’s ‘Journey Through Health and Wellness’ series, click on the following link:
Dr. Joanne Kong, trained as a classical pianist, explains the relationship between music and plant-source nutrition. She cares about sensitivity and reaching out to others, and talks of how the sound of music puts us in touch with ourselves. Dr. Joanne Kong and her interviewer, Dr. Elisa Haransky Beck discuss the release of Joanne's latest book, 'Vegan Voices.' Vegan Voices is an anthology compiled by Dr. Joanne Kong, and it contains 51 vegan perspectives. They speak of the philosophy behind the book as using food in the most sustainable way possible, and being compassionate towards all life. Joanne gives an overview of the chapters in the book and introduces a few of the diverse authors. She even goes on to read a few beautiful and inspiring excerpts from the book. As she explains the damage of the agricultural industry and its ties to consumerism, Joanne also speaks optimistically about the appeal of the book to non-vegans and beginner vegans, as veganism is a journey, and not a destination.
A lecturer on Veganism, Animal Rights, Nutrition, Compassion, and Environmental Sustainability, Dr. Joanne Kong is one of the most compelling advocates for plant-based nutrition today. Since 2015, Joanne has given public lectures on all aspects of plant-based nutrition. She will appear in two upcoming documentaries, "Eating Our Way to Extinction" and "Taking Note," and has authored multiple successful vegan books. She has an innate ability to connect with others and share her vision of a more compassionate world.
