A Weekend of MEGA Inspiration for Integrative Nutrition
The weekend came and went, but we’re still buzzing with all the energy powered by the 2012 Mega Conference at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California! Thousands of Integrative Nutrition students, graduates, teachers, staff and guests came together to accelerate the movement of transforming the world into one of health and happiness.
We heard from international students, who made the trip from various parts of the world, as well as successful graduates who are turning their dreams into realities. We were inspired and empowered by a list of renowned speakers including David Wolfe, Geneen Roth, Mark Sission, Paul Pitchford, John Robbins, Julia Ross, Gary Taubes, Eric Barron, Seane Corn, Stacy Morgenstern, and Carey Peters.
As always, Integrative Nutrition Founder Joshua Rosenthal brought his gift for encouraging people to take action toward reaching their goals and changing the world.
The feedback we’ve received about the Mega Conference has been overwhelming! Our Facebook and Twitter pages are bursting with positive energy and our VIP Live Bloggers have been busy recapping their favorites moments and what they learned over the weekend. We’ll be sharing their updates later this week, so if you weren’t able to attend this conference, you’ll still be able to read their summaries and soak up all the nutrition knowledge you missed!
We connected with our community all weekend long (and into this week!) on Twitter using the hashtag #MegaIIN. At one point we even saw #MegaIIN trending! Take a look at all the amazing inspiration attendees were feeling throughout the conference.
Whether it was the speakers and teachers that made it a weekend full of enabling knowledge:
