Fasting as a Physical, Mental and Spiritual Practice

Intermittent Fasting (IF) has become quite the hot health and weight loss topic lately—with good reason. Cycling between periods of eating and not eating can help you shed surplus fat and gain mental clarity. IF may even help reverse or prevent serious chronic health conditions such as diabetes and dementia. But the practice of fasting is ancient. Most major religions incorporate fasting as part of sacred rituals that date back centuries. Human beings seem to have evolved in a way that favors fasting to maintain optimal health. In her sermon on May 3, Susan Wenner Jackson will share what she’s discovered about the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of fasting over the past year.

We will conduct this service virtually via Zoom. If you’d like to join us on Sunday, just email us at info@harmonyuu.org and we’ll send you a link for our online Sunday Service.
