Since its debut in 1995, Miraval has upheld a powerfully simple vision: life is more meaningful and enjoyable when physical, emotional, spiritual, social and intellectual components are in harmony. The way we nourish ourselves is no exception. From nutrition lectures to cooking and baking classes, the culinary programming at Miraval aims to teach guests the techniques by which they can foster healthy relationships with food.
For those individuals meditating in caves and living in sacred communities, enlightenment is a way of life. But what of us mere mortals, who have careers, businesses, families and social obligations? How do we access that state of inner peace and deep fulfillment?

This week at Miraval, our guests had the distinct honor (and pleasure!) of meeting Dr. Marisa Weiss. Dr Weiss is a leading breast oncologist and the president and founder of Breastcancer.org. She shared her passion and expertise about the topic and shared the findings of a 5 year intensive study between her foundation and Harvard Medical School. The findings were clear and there are steps you can take in your everyday life to lower your risk of developing breast cancer. Dr. Marisa Weiss and her team are now sharing a prevention message through Breastcancer.org’s Think Pink, Live Green initiative.

Thanks so much to Barnes and Noble—they did a great job—and it was an awesome experience being able to laugh and share with people that health does not have to be complex or difficult to manage. It can be quick and dirty..."
