You are warmly invited to Zest Ubud on Saturday May 11th from 3 to 6 pm for a special gathering with former Buddhist monk, author, activist, performing artist, and retreat leader, Alan Clements, known for his long training in insight meditation and Buddhist psychology.
The event is also broadcast worldwide on facebook live
on Alan's fb https://www.facebook.com/alan.clements.37
Alan will present at Zest his World Dharma Public Forum: “Reclaiming Freedom and Authenticity and the Totality of Everyday Life (a mindful intelligence training),” which will be followed by Q & A and discussion, along with a special emphasis on several innovative expressions of mindfulness meditation, as follows:
1) The yoga and meditation of speaking and listening as a transformational immersive art.
2) The yoga and meditation of eating and drinking as a transformational immersive art.
3) And the yoga and meditation of immersing oneself in the aesthetics of the senses.
Alan is known, according to the Maui Times as "the most spiritually astute humorist in America today." As such, he has been performing his searing satirical solo performance piece, "Spiritually Incorrect" for the past 20 years to audiences around the world, in support of raising awareness of freedom of thought, speech and expression as the best safeguards against war, violence and genocide.
Alan and Zest are offering this immersive workshop experience for free to the Bali Community.
*Places are limited to 30 people.*
Please invite your friends and be sure to reserve your space in advance at the cashier at Zest, that is, if you want to be assured of your space. Otherwise, risk it but come early. And even so, if you want to be sure register at Zest.
This is a rare opportunity to learn a set of timeless transformational practices in an intimate setting.
We very much hope to see you.

Join Zest Executive Chef Simon for an enticing conversation around one of the humanities great obsessions: food.
Is there a perfect diet for humans, and how does it agree with the rest of the world?
Do vegans really taste better when eaten by a crocodile?
How did the industrialization of agriculture cause a cornflake revolution, is it linked to a patriarchal society and...
...do I really have artificial fertilizer running around my veins?
In his talks, Simon enjoys hitting the more controversial topics whilst not forgetting about the lighter side of life (which should never involve diet coke).
A passionate chef of 15 years, during his 5 years in Bali he established 200 Are of thriving food forest, gave birth to the food and philosophies of renowned places such as Bali Silent Retreat and Wamm cafe before teaming up with his brother Pierre to give power back to plants at the already notoriously delicious Zest Ubud.
Zest is here to connect and through this talk, we hope for you to become up close and personal with the food you eat, the earth its grown from and ultimately with yourself, the delicious and resilient person that you are.

Access Bars® is a gentle hands-on technique that quiets the mind and allows people to lay back, not have to ‘do’ anything and just receive. The Bars are 32 points on your head which, when being touched, effortlessly and easily can release anything that doesn't allow you to receive.

What are you afraid of? What is holding you back in your business and/or your life?
Fear is always our greatest obstacle. It keeps us from living the life we yearn for - a life without limits. It is an incredibly powerful emotion that can paralyze us, preventing us from doing the things we need to do to step forward, to grow, and move forward in our journey.
In this workshop, you will learn how to identify your fears and overcome them using a few practical exercises, including extremely simple breathwork.
When practiced regularly, these techniques will change your relationship to fear, so that you can feel it, observe it, and, most importantly, overcome it.
Key Take Aways:
• Identify where and what fears are holding you back in your mission and/or your life.
• A powerful experience of moving through fear.
• Practical methods to identify, observe and work with fear regularly.
