It's that time of year again -- time for what John
McDougall MD last year termed "the most important vegetarian conference
I've attended in 30 years" -- the VegSource Healthy Lifestyle
The energy-packed weekend includes a number of
distinguished speakers, a Saturday night Pajama Party, entertainment,
surprise guests, cooking demonstrations, golfing, special hotel rates,
and a Sunday panel including religious leaders who will address the
Spiritual/Philosophical Connections to Vegetarianism.
TV cameras and large rear-projection screens to see the
speaker and presentations, and a hot new sound system means that every
seat will be a great seat at the conference this year.
