I spent three days in the lovely Fall cloaked mountains of PA, taking classes, gathering knowledge, and becoming inspired. Truly. There were times my heart felt so full I was afraid it would spill right over into the lap of someone sitting next to me. I am confident I would have been in good hands if it did.
The Symposium wasn't just about learning new techniques to treat various chronic and acute diseases naturally (although there were plenty of enlightening talks on these topics). It was about making connections, finding our place in the world, and changing the way we view medicine and how we incorporate it into our lives.
Whether it is simply getting outside to get to know the local plants in your area. They are your allies. You'd be surprised how many of those pesky weeds are powerful medicine!
Or realizing that food IS medicine. You can make powerful medicine that even your kids will love. And it can fit into a lunchbox.
