The Launch of ‘Laughing at cancer’ + The Shtick

 

Ros Ben-Moshe launched her amazing book, Laughing at cancer this past weekend in Melbourne to a large room of guests all enraptured to hear her speak about not only her book but her work with being a health and wellness practitioner and the life of being a laughter yogi. Her book, Laughing at cancer is a unique book as most books about cancer are Q&A’s, outline the latest scientific research advances, are written from a “what to expect” orientation, or in some instances are from a comedic perspective on someone’s personal experience. This book, whilst infused with humour, hope and inspiration also includes some scientific evidence, making the content factually rigorous and is available in all good bookstores now
ISBN: 9781925367843

Not to stop there, as Ros is never one to slow down on her path to bringing about smiles, information and support around the dialogue we have about ill-health and the practice of health and wellness, she also appeared on Channel 31’s The Shtick which is a showcase of community events, information and entertainment for the Jewish and non-Jewish community. If you didn’t have the opportunity to watch The Shtick when it first aired it is available on Youtube: Ros Ben-Moshe’s appearance on The Shtick – June 14th, 2017

Premier Gala Screening of ‘RAW The Documentary’

Alan and Janette. Credit: http://rawveganpath.com/about-us/

First, they came for the world record, now they’re bringing us an exciting and enlightening documentary which details their World Record setting 366 consecutive marathons (while both in their 60’s no less) around Australia and not only covering 15,782kms but also doing it on a raw vegan diet.

RAW The Documentary (based from the popular book ‘Raw Can Cure” by Janette Murray-Wakelin. Brolga Publighing + first published in 2013) sets out to shatter some misconceptions of what one can achieve eating a raw vegan diet. It explores the lives of Janette and Alan as they began to consider the benefits of a raw diet after Janette was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. Now years on and in their 60’s and healthy as a direct result of their fitness and commitment to ethical diets they want to share the amazing feats they have completed and the experiences along the way – which include the beauty of family, the love they have shared for over 30 years, a lifetime of fitness, the marathons in the great Australian nature encountering cyclones, torrential rain and 44+ degree weather. RAW The Documentary stands to be an informative resource for our awareness of the possibilities achievable on a raw vegan diet and the larger comments on the betterment of the environment, water sources and the considerations of all the species on this planet.

Mal Walden was 17 years of age when he applied for his first job in media. At age 70, he gracefully crossed the finishing line to be recognised as the longest serving newsman on Australian television.

Each year Walden maintained a journal in which he recorded his personal life-changing moments woven through some of the biggest headlines of our times. Today they form a record – not only of his life as a newsman – but an evolution of television news now in its sixtieth year and facing what many proclaim is the imminent ‘death of news’ in all its traditional forms.
