Wellness is spreading on campus!

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to share about the amazing panel we had Thursday night in the wellness center called “Sustainable Wellness.” Myself and my fellow classmates sat on a panel to talk about what sustainable wellness means to us and examples of what we do in our life.

For me, I had a hard time putting it into words because I feel as though I live my life to keep myself well. Whether it is watching what I eat or preventing a cold from getting worse, I live each day to consciously keep myself healthy. I shared a quote with the group because it summed up exactly what I was feeling...“Take care of your body because it’s the only place you have to live.”

We had a really amazing session with the students talking about their struggles with stress, healthy eating, time management, and their overall health. For all of you who were at this panel, please use this as your way to reach out to me about events you would like to see on campus. I am currently working on putting together two events before the end of the semester in regards to stress management. I will keep your posted on all of that.

Also, THIS WEEK we have 2 great events on campus.

Don’t forget TONIGHT we will have The Food Mood Connection in a new location. It is in A&S 165 at 5:30PM to 7:00PM. Learn how the food you eat affects your mood.


Tuesday night I will be showing an amazing movie called Food Matters! It is a personal favorite of mine and many of my classmates and I hope you can take the time out to see it. It talks about supplements, vitamins curing cancer, foods you should be eating to change your health, and how the food we eat makes up who we are and can actually be used as medicine!

Check out the trailer below.

Food Matters will be shown in the Little Theatre, Tuesday night at 6pm.

Hope to see all of you on campus this week!

Don’t Forget to Take Part in all the PINK on Campus Today!!!

Today is Breast Cancer Awareness day at GCU! 

Please be sure to take part in something!

I will be hosting a table on breast cancer prevention. Stop by and learn how we can end breast cancer in the future. 

At 6PM, we will also be hosting a movie screening of CRAZY SEXY CANCER in the Little Theatre. After the movie is over, I hope you are inspired to share your thoughts and feelings on the movie to have a discussion. 

CRAZY SEXY CANCER

 

Hello Everyone!!!

 

 

This upcoming Tuesday, October 25th will be a very PINK day on campus in honor of breast cancer awareness.

There will be events going on all day long so be sure to take part in something.

 

 

My background is in holistic health which is all about preventing disease, treating the whole person (not just the physical body), and using complementary and alternative medicine to aid in healing. Truthfully, when it comes to breast cancer awareness, my passion does not lie in painting the town pink or raising money for the cure. My passion lies in the prevention of breast cancer altogether.  I hope for a day that we will not need to walk, wear pink ribbons, or lose mothers, daughters, grandmothers, sisters, best friends, and loved ones to this terrible disease.

I hope you all will stop by the table I will be sitting at on Tuesday, October 25th to learn about what you can do to prevent breast cancer. We live in an extremely toxic world and the choices you make today have the power to prevent disease like breast cancer for you and those around you.

I will also be showing Crazy Sexy Cancer in the Little Theatre at 6pm. This movie is shown in some of the holistic health classes and Kris Carr has been seen on all sorts of media including Oprah. Kris Carr, a cancer “thriver,” is an amazing woman who feels more alive by her own cancer diagnosis than she ever was before she found herself sick. She calls her tumors her beauty marks and is quickly becoming a healing guru.

 

I was lucky enough to turn on the TV this morning to see Kris Carr on the Gayle King Show. She said how while she supports the push for early detection of cancer, she pushes the no cancer/zero detection push. Tuesday night after the movie we will also have a discussion about the movie with all who are willing to share. Crazy Sexy Cancer will be shown on OWN this Sunday for those who can’t make it to Tuesday’s screening.

 

 

I promise you this movie will make you laugh, cry, smile, and be amazed at the journey you go on. Most of you will read this and wonder how CRAZY and SEXY go with cancer. Make sure you come to see the movie Tuesday night to find out.

Sarah Jane Lockenmeyer Intro to Forks over Knives

Hello everyone!

I am so excited you have have found this blog, it’s is going to be an excellent space vibrant with great energy to inspire you on a healthy path to wellness and inform you of the amazing events happening right around campus!

I hope everyone can feel the amazing energy and excitement i’m feeling just by reading my words! I am just getting back from Yoga Fest where I sat as a Q&A panel member for the amazing documentary, Forks over Knives.

The showroom was packed with 100 plus people all filled with questions about adapting a plant based diet into their lifestyle. Something amazing happened during the questioning, this one women stood up and broke out in tears, the prompt handed her the mike and she began to speak, “You mean to tell me if I want to be healthy, I have to give up all the things I love and was raised on…meat,eggs, milk, CHEESE?!!!”

My fellow panel members and I were a bit taken by surprise, this had to be approached gently, I took to the microphone and replied.

“A journey to a plant based diet is a long beautiful journey, the things you love don’t all go away overnight, in fact they never go away, their just replaced with new loves.During the transition these foods are crowded out with more sustainable ones. It’s not that you will have to deny your body of the foods you crave, once you embark on a plant based diet the consciousness is heightened, the body no longer desires these types of food. How’s this for inspiration… every time you pick up a fork with plant based food on the end, not only are you nourishing yourself, you nourish the environment- it takes about 80% more water, land and fossil fuel to produce animal product. Your nourishing your fellow man- with the amount of grain it takes to just fatten a cow we could solve the issues of world hunger! That to me is reason enough to vote with my fork over the knives that slaughter and ultimately kill our environment, our bodies and our fellow man”

The woman came up to me as I was leaving the theater and said to me “I’m ready to begin my journey!”

 

 

 

Interested in embarking on your own journey? The screening of Forks Over Knives is coming to Georgian Court, Tuesday October 4 at 6pm in the Little Theater, please call or email Sachiko for your free e-ticket.
