Live Today Health Talk @ Online - Live Streamed on

Live To Day Health Talk, our mission is to provide accurate and thorough information needed to make sound decisions regarding healthy choices regarding health, finances, and improving life styles. For example, we do believe in providing information so you know how taking the right nutrition can help reverse dis-eases. So many people are not aware of how nutrition can help and protect the body by fighting off those free radicals. Free radicals may be formed through natural human physiological processes as well as from the environment. They may be the result of diet, stress, smoking, alcohol, exercise, inflammation, drugs or exposure to sunlight and air pollutants.

We at Live Today Health Talk love sharing and hosting with other like-minded people to spread the word on nutrition. With that, we even share how people can take control of their own finances and repairing your credit report and much more. Why do we discuss things that other talk shows are either unable, or unwilling, to do? Because we are naturalist, and we believe that you should know that God intend for your body to heal itself, we know that not all doctors are willing to share nutrition and we want to help educate those who don’t know.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of information to invigorate and revitalize you. We will continue to share more information for your physical and emotional health, your opportunity for an improved and purposeful life, and your ability to find a higher purpose and join an unstoppable movement.

Come with us!

Stillness In Action ~ Mindfulness in a Hectic Modern World @ Village Connector Community
May 3 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Stillness In Action ~ Mindfulness in a Hectic Modern World @ Village Connector Community  | Laurel | Maryland | United States

Stillness In Action ~ Mindfulness in a Hectic Modern World
Teens & Young Adults: Do you struggle with stress and anxiety, have trouble focusing, or feel bogged down with constant information bombardment at school and home? Are you looking for a way to bring clarity to your daily life and your relationships with family, friends, and peers?
Parents: Are you trying to balance everything from the stress of the daily grind to the responsibility of guiding your child down the right path?
The chaos and demands of the modern world do not need to rule your life! Cultivating mindfulness through meditation can be your greatest tool for solving problems, making decisions, fostering personal growth, and taking control of your life.
In this powerful two-hour workshop, Presenter Rev. James Granderson will introduce participants to meditation and the concept of mindfulness, and illuminate their benefits for mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. He will also explain how these practices can be used as indispensable tools for creating and achieving life goals, resolving conflicts and developing healthy relationships.
Participants will explore the various models of meditation practice that allow individuals to cultivate the “Pure Observer,” opening the way for becoming masters of mind, body, and emotion. Following this discussion, participants will be introduced to several different meditation techniques and be able to try some for themselves- hopefully putting them into practice later.
In this thought-provoking and engaging presentation for teens, young adults, and parents, you will:
– Become familiar with the concept of mindfulness and the transformative practice of meditation
– Explore various techniques and the countless benefits of meditation practice
– Set out on the path of mindfulness and take control of your life
(This workshop serves as a perfect introduction for James’s Four-Week Meditation Package starting May 10th)
Presenter Rev. Gothi James Granderson is an anthropologist, instructor, entrepreneur, Reiki practitioner, Phi Beta Kappa scholar, and ordained minister with degrees in Anthropology and Chinese Studies from Gettysburg College. With sixteen years of direct experience, James has conducted extensive academic research and interfaith study and dialogue in the United States and abroad in China.
James specializes and believes in enriching people’s daily lives and promoting a culture of mindfulness to secular and non-secular audiences alike.

The Learning Community International School Presents Living With Aliens: A Workshop To Help Teens And Parents Understand Themsleves Each Other @ Village Connector
May 6 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm
The Learning Community International School Presents Living With Aliens: A Workshop To Help Teens And Parents Understand Themsleves Each Other @ Village Connector

The Learning Community International School Presents:

Living With Aliens: A Workshop To Help Teens And Parents Understand Themsleves Each Other

Teens: Do you naturally seek acceptance, a challenge, security or adventure? Are you having trouble making yourself understood or are you baffled by your parents’ insistence that you approach things a particular way?

Parents: To create a better relationship between kids and their parents, a better understanding of personality differences can be invaluable!

In this half-day workshop Susan Kohm of The Handmade Life Coaching will help teens and parents use the results of the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, Step 2 program to examine who they are, what’s important, why, and to whom. Participants will explore new ways to deal with conflict and to work together to approach important decisions about college and education, career, and life choices from a position of self and mutual understanding. Prior to the program teens AND parents will complete the MBTI – Step 2 online. It takes approximately half an hour to complete this questionnaire, which will be scored and returned to you at the program.

(Please note: Even if you have “done” the Myers Brigs testing as an individual, there are many illuminating benefits to participating in a group session!)

In this dynamic and interactive presentation for teens and parents, you will:
~ Identify how your own temperament affects your communication style
~ Learn strategies for communicating across differences
~ Begin crafting the pathway to a successful and happy life!
Cost: $99/person at this group event. (Individual sessions are $250/person).

Presenter Susan Kohm, MIIM, of The Handmade Life Coaching helps her clients lead more authentic and fulfilling lives. Certified as a Rockport Institute Career Coach, Susan can offer her clients the finest gift and talent testing in the world. Her approach to coaching is holistic and customized to fit each client’s unique profile.
At the core of her approach is the simple but profound idea that life and career satisfaction rest in doing what we do best!
