Happy holidays! Sending our best wishes and gratitude that you are part of our community, and of our efforts to make the world a healthier & more peaceful place!
This is my Rosetta stone of soup, a broth that can be transformed to meet a myriad nutritional needs, serving as everything from a delicious sipping tea to the powerful base for more hearty soups and stews. So no matter what a person’s appetite, it can provide a tremendous nutritional boost. This rejuvenating liquid, chock-full of magnesium, potassium, and sodium, allows the body to refresh and restore itself. I think of it as a tonic, designed to keep you in tip-top shape.
Community. Healing. Hopefulness. Tens of thousands of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are using the CMBM model to repair the damaging effects of trauma and stress. They have created a community of healing and support that touches lives and builds a sense of hopefulness for the future.
The people you see in this video are our brothers and sisters. We bring them hope for healing the terrible losses they experienced in the January 2010 earthquake. Their unaffected courage, their warmth, joy and humor as they learn to heal themselves give me hope for all of us.
I very much look forward to reading your comments.
This is the first of a new series of videos that we’ll be sharing about our work in Haiti.

Food As Medicine Executive Chef Rebecca Katz, MS, just shared this lovely video, “Nourish means….” from the folks at NourishLife.org.
What nourishes you?
Here’s another video update of our 2009 Gaza Advanced Training Program (ATP)! You’ll see another technique we use, chaotic breathing, a form of very “active meditation” illustrated at minute :37. You’ll also see the introduction to the “fishbowl,” in which we demonstrate to the trainees the small group model, at 1:24. (Small mind-body skills groups meet privately, so this demonstration during training is the best way we’ve found to show the health and mental health professionals attending how to lead their own groups.)
