Health and healing without medicine: Simple, powerful tools for vitality and health

Didi Pershouse and Mark Kutolowski are teaching a four-part series at the Upper Valley Food Coop in White River Junction, Vermont. This series is designed to teach participants to tap into the healing powers of their own body apart from the use of external medicines (herbal, conventional/western, or otherwise) or treatments from medical practitioners (western or alternative).  We will explore practical ways to regain, maintain, and super-charge health through our body’s own resources.  These methods are simple, powerful, profound, and offer an extremely affordable approach to basic health care.
Each session will cover one particular approach to self-healing.  Together, they represent a comprehensive approach to self-care:

  • THE HUMAN ENERGY FIELD: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 9, 2011. Awakening to the reality of bioenergy, the energetic precursors of disease, and how to release disease patterns at their energetic source before manifestation.  We will learn an energy-based theory of health and illness, and specific exercises to clear and heal the energy field.  This class is based in insights from the 3,000 year old Chinese energetic practices of QiGong.
  • HEALING THE EMOTIONAL FIELD: WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2011.   How to recognize and release (‘discharge’) emotional pain and blockages.  The correlation between emotional and physiological illness.  Learning ways of intimacy and effective non-professional counseling.  How to release and heal from emotional pain with other people, with nature, and in body-based meditation.  In this class we will draw extensively on our direct experiences as counselors and retreat leaders, and the perspectives of Re-evaluation Counseling.
  • TEMPERING THE BODY WITH THE FORCES OF NATURE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 6, 2011.  How to use air, water, earth and fire to heal and greatly revitalize the body.  This includes breath work to strengthen the respiratory, cardiovascular, and nervous systems, alternating hot and cold (fire and water) in European sauna traditions to revitalize the body, cold water therapy to restore the nervous system, and strengthening the immune system through earth-laying and barefoot walking.  We will draw heavily from practices rooted in the indigenous Russian Health System.
  • TRUE NOURISHMENT: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2011.  Traditional diets, the role of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and micronutrients in healing.  How to build an optimal diet for lifelong health and vitality.  This session also includes discussion of the role of fasting in restoring and maintaining abundant health.  We will root our insights in the common principles of traditional diets used to build health worldwide before the advent of the industrial food system.

Didi Pershouse Speaking To Transition-Town Putney, VT Feb 18th, 2011

Reskilling for a Post-Oil Health Care System

“Reskilling” is a term used to describe relearning or reviving skills that were essential to surviving in the days before high-tech everything was easily available. In agriculture, this means using hand tools, using oxen or horses to plow a field, etc. What does it mean for medicine?  How do we diagnose and treat illness at times when technology fails due to power outages, rising oil prices, or natural disasters? Are there skills that we are losing that could be useful even when modern technology is available? Where can one learn these skills?

Come to this talk and find out more!

Didi Pershouse will be speaking to Transition Town Putney, Vermont on Friday, February 18th, 2011, from 7 to 8:30pm. The talk will be held at the Putney Libraryr located at 55 Main Street. Open to the public. By donation.
