It looks like Probiotics, Whole Grain Baking, Knitting/ Skill Sharing, Sprouting/ Raw Foods, Consensual Living and Local Harvest are the most desired topics.
Chime in if you have other favorites. Does anyone want to do a presentation on Sprouting and/or Raw Foods? Any Local Harvest sources that we could contact? We'll set up a presentation about the Probiotics and Whole Grain Baking. Other interests?
The man that did the vermicomposting for me said that he will and does the workshops for other groups as long as he is available. It would be hand-on, everyone would make a bin with worms to take home. There would be a cost. I'll contact him to find out the cost and min. number of people for a workshop.
I would really like to learn about bach flower essences, local harvest and backyard chickens.
If anyone is interested in learning about acupuncture and Chinese medicine, five element healing or qi gong I would love to speak about these things too.
Hi Pat, I am surely still interested! My step-dad and only babysitter has gone back to FL so activities without Caleb are difficult. We will still try and make the gattherings when we can and park play dates.
I generally can't make Sunday nights but can on Wednesdays, which seems to not work for a number of the members. I'm willing to learn anything and am really looking for the companionship aspect of the meetings.
The one meeting that I attend was canceled (understandably so) but the group of women who showed up were all wonderful and had many different things to contribute. We talked about composting, vaccinations, home birth, and raw foods.
So that doesn't help with the regroup ideas but perhaps it can re-inspire.
Hi, Pat- I'm sorry that turn out has been low! I've wanted to come to all the meetings, and had great plans to on Sundays but it just wasn't working for me. I work long days most Saturdays and also don't see my husband all week so the last time I planned to come I was too wiped out! Wednesdays have also been tough because my husband has been working late. I'm hoping that will end soon! I don't have any suggestions because my schedule is sporadic right now but I really hope that we can keep this group together!
Last evening, I attended the "Homeopathy Study Group" with Kristy Lampe, at Earth Fare. It was fascinating. She has hosted the group for 10+ years. It used to meet at Talley's on East Blvd.
The focus of the discussion came back to how to resolve health or injury issues with acute homeopathy. And, the "study group" template was inspiring. There were people who were beginners to homeopathy and several people with extensive acute homeopathy knowledge and experience to share. I loved the 'give and take' flow of the gathering. Where each person had different perspectives and experience to offer. I'd love to participate with others passionate about holistic health and healing! Where we have an issue to discuss from different perspectives, nutritionally, energetically, whatever everyone's experience is to share. The presentation format, is another option. And we've had several gatherings which are more round-table, also.
What health, healing, holistic type issues are people interested in exploring? There are raw food groups, homeopathy groups, and presentations by health providers at Earth Fare already. We could also just post the various offerings and decide to attend, as a group, as able. Last night we touched on wound healing, vaccinations, hospitalizations, flu, pets, GI disturbances, joint pain, etc. There were many avenues which we could have addressed, beyond homeopathy, such as nutrition, chiro, alternative "first aid" healing, liver detox, environmental allergens, immune system support, herbal alternatives, whole food benefits, yoga, meditation, NAET, Ayurveda, EFT, Reiki, Aromatherapy, chemical toxicity, environmental health, etc.
What is your passion? What are you interested in sharing? What are you interested in learning? We could meet monthly, and just chat about whatever is on your mind currently. Which days or times work best for your family?
There are many groups with a sales agenda to the meetings, when presented by health providers. So, I'd like the gatherings to be more informal, interest-led, than business (product/service) presentations. I'm interested in preventative health care, from a self-informed perspective.
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"
"Thanks, lots of great ideas we can try. (I am a new member on the yahoo group as of last week.) We also read some information elsewhere about treating with arnica, do you have any experience with that? DH used arnica pellets on Sunday for muscle…"
"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
Are you already a member there?…"
