This week's featured event is the 2017 Midwest Herb Fest in French Lick, IN. It's a ways away (August 4th - 6th, 2017) but I wanted to make sure it is on everyone's radar.
Reasons to attend:
Iowan herbalist Stephany Hoffelt’s keynote ~
“Traditional healers were intent on more than just therapeutic delivery of botanical medicine. They were aware of the mind-body-community connection and approached healing with a far more holistic philosophy than modern day herbalists embrace. Traditional healers served as spiritual advisors and community organizers. They mediated between community members and their environment.
This discussion based class will discuss the mind-body connection including how humans are "wired for community connection" and how current research in psychoneuroimmunology supports a much broader definition of health. But more importantly, we will talk about practical ways that herbalists and other healers can model their own community practices after traditional healing practices in a way that accommodates modern health challenges.”
Loads of classes from these fine herbalists ~
