June Meeting Topic: “Holistic Nutrition”

Our speaker at June’s monthly meeting will be Monika Bock:

Version 3

In today’s world of health and nutrition there are countless headlines, books, diets, and new “superfoods” coming on the market that claim to be the next cure all. As a holistic nutritionist the first thing I tell my clients is that everyBODY is different – what might work for one person may not for another. That being said, there are some basic nutritional requirements that everyone needs to be healthy and active. What does your body need to stay healthy and allow you to function at your best? I will be discussing how whole food and proper digestion is linked to nutrient absorption along with some tips on how to incorporate foods that support your digestion into you diet. 

Nutrition must support each person’s bio-individuality. My passion is to support my clients so they can achieve their individual health and wellness goals through a sustainable change in their diet and lifestyle.

Little American Oktoberfest – MING Event

Little American Oktoberfest at the Waldwirtschaft Großhesselohe, Georg-Kalb-Str. 3, 82049 München-Pullach

As in previous years, the Waldwirtschaft in Großhesselohe, again invites us to the annual Little American Oktoberfest to be held on 9 July starting at noon and continuing throughout the day. Come out and enjoy a wonderful day in the beer garden with great food, good fun and a fantastic show program organized by Linda Jo Rizzo with lots of different acts which will keep everyone entertained the whole day. The beer garden offers a fully-equipped children’s playground and a mini golf course.

Around 1600 the Waldwirtschaft will treat us to a keg of free beer during a special keg-opening ceremony performed by US Consul General Jennifer Gavito.
Our reserved tables in the beer garden are facing the band and located under the white umbrellas. Since this is a beer garden, we will not reserve special tables for the individual groups. If you want to sit together with your group, you are encouraged to arrive early enough to save places.

Please RSVP to Jane by July 4th at:

Many thanks ladies for your support!
Best wishes,

May 2017 Chair’s Letter

A monthly email for members with news about the club

Dear Members:

Julie Leonard, our speaker at the May General Meeting, had a lot to say about surviving and thriving the cultural shock of moving. You can find the core of her presentation by clicking here. Julie’s main point was, “get involved, find your people, move in the world.” She emphasized the need to find reasons to connect with other women and men and highlighted how the websites Internations and Meetup can help make that happen, especially for a younger generation used to using the internet for shopping, transportation, and information. Julie’s presentation was precise and to the point. It was great to have her come and clarify what we already knew because we’re already doing it here in the Munich International Women’s Club. For over 25 years, we’ve been creating a community for women from all over the world who are here for just a few months, a few years, or a lifetime.

Waldwirtschaft Beer Garden Opening – Saturday, 13 May

This reminder is to let you know that the Beer Garden Opening at the Waldwirtschaft Großhesselohe will take place rain or shine. The weather is getting warmer, and the chances that it might rain are diminishing. If we do have rain, we can take seats in the “Sarlettl” which is the roofed and closed tent just to the left of the beer garden as you enter – where we will be warm and dry.

There is no entry fee to pay. You just pay for the food and drinks you consume in the beer garden. We only ask for a small tip for the band. All are invited, so please tell your friends who may be interested in joining us.
