About the Event
Hi everyone and welcome back to our monthly class-based meetings! As our world becomes more and more complicated, especially in regards to our current public health crises, this October is a good time for us to sit down and chat about critical thinking. There's a whole lot of information out there, some good, some bad, some ugly, and it can be extremely difficult to navigate our way through it. Furthermore, as wellness-minded folks who want to truly understand and empower, we must be prepared to ask the right health questions when we use herbs for ourselves and for others. We always want to think critically, whether we are working with the plants, patients or just working our way through the massive amount of research, statistics and data available from books, the internet, social media and those around us.
This October we are thrilled to welcome herbalist Lisa Fazio of Newport, NY as a guest teacher. We will be reviewing concepts such as the Socratic method of deductive reasoning, taking a strong health history to find the root cause of symptoms, and tips and tricks for weeding through health information, statistics and research online.
Class is $10, and we will be continuing the Zoom format since social distancing at our small, live space is just not realistic. I will be sending out emails with all needed handouts, PPTs and/or links before class on 10/20, and that email will also include the Zoom link so that you can join class live. If you are unable to join the live class but are interested in attending, please RSVP anyway! Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org after you buy your ticket and let us know you would like the class recording to be emailed to you. You will still get all handouts and files, and can view the recorded class at your leisure :)
Come join the conversation!!
