The Heart as an Organ of Perception with Kathleen Maier, Saturday morning
Indigenous peoples have been using direct perception for sensing their environs for millennia. Today this is referred to as ‘heart literacy’ or ‘heart coherence’. Based on the teachings of the traditional peoples, Heartmath Institute, Stephen Buhner and Joseph Chilton Pearce, this intensive will teach clear techniques for accessing this incredible center for perceiving the world around us. Many of these skills are not relegated to only the healer but are meant for our everyday relationship with life. This being said, we will also share stories of how profound these skills are for practitioners in the realms of diagnosis. Just as natives were able to ask the plants directly for information, we too can develop the elegance of an inquiry that speaks directly to organ systems.
The Mother of Dragons, Systemic Inflammation with Thomas Easley, Sunday morning
Systemic inflammation is the mechanism by which many root causes of disease manifest symptoms. In this class we will explore all of the mechanisms of systemic inflammation, from diet and stress to the microbiota and more. By understanding the way our actions and choices create inflammation, we can better target lasting interventions.
