This is a redux of our Dialog Lunch, July 8th, see images, below.

  • Noon to 12:30pm — Arrivals
  • 12:30pm — buffet lunch, discussion with Steve
  • 4pm — goodbyes

An afternoon-in-the-garden with anti-aging expert Steven Fowkes. His talking points:

  • different scientific theories of aging and what they imply about our lifestyle choices.
  • how the neuroendocrine theory of aging ties to thoughts, beliefs, optimism, appreciation, joy and happiness. The mind-brain-body connection.
  • collagen and the human condition; why humans have unique connective-tissue health issues and how they affect sagging, wrinkling, bruising and vascular disease.

These three aspects of aging provide broad insights into what we all need to know about aging in order to do something about it.

Steve will lead the discussion, and hopes you will bring questions about aging. There will be only mild social pressure to speak up so if you’d rather only listen and absorb, more power to you. We’ll give everybody a chance to participate.


This will be an outdoors, open-circle discussion group with Steve Fowkes facilitating the discussion, with a Chef Joni buffet-style gourmet meal (with appetizers, paleolithic and vegan food options, and desert). No alcohol will be served.

Children who can engage in the dialog will be welcome.

Outdoor patio venue (weather permitting) with creek-waterfall water feature to provide a relaxing experience for dining and discussion. One dog and two cats live on the premises. Squirrels, moles and voles live in the yard. Possums, birds, rabbits and the occasional raccoon visit the yard. Wheelchair accessible through the side yard. Recording the discussion is permitted with consent of guests.


This will be a buffet-style luncheon in the garden, prepared by Chef Joni Sare. The food will be paleolithic (meat and vegetables, some cooked, some raw), with no grain and no milk products.

Please let us know if you vegetarian, vegan, or raw and or have food allergies or intolerances, and or have any major food dislikes. Joni specializes in accommodating dietary requirements, so don’t be shy.


Steve Fowkes is an organic chemist, biochemist and inventor. See and for web samples of Steve’s writings, and (Steve’s YouTube channel) for his information on Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease. Steve’s talk to Google employees, Nutrients for Better Mental Performance can be watched at
