      Imagine plants growing in pristine virgin soil deep in the heart of the
      Rainforest. Plants store information within them just as humans do. Imagine
      the vast amount of information these whole wild botanicals contain. Theirs is
      a message of ecological harmony and balance going back for generations.

      Scientists now confirm that new discoveries in Rainforest plants hold the keys
      to reversing degenerative disease and accelerating health and vitality for us
      and future generations.

      Come and learn some of the secrets the medicine men and women have known for
      centuries that make it possible to experience a high quality of lifelong,
      radiant vitality. This program will include a tasting of some delicious
      “guilt free” healthy chocolate, sustainably harvested and obtained in a
      ‘more than fair trade’ way.
