Holistic Health - 2013

Since the Mayan calendar has started another cycle, as we knew it would in spite of media misinformation, it's a good time to focus on your health for the next cycle.

Has there been a shift in consciousness as some feel? Holistic health certainly is gaining acceptance. In November a holistic health fair was held at Ellington High School; in January 50 mostly new, area people attended a workshop on Art and Creativity For Personal Transformation by ROBERTA MOCKUS at the Vernon Community Arts Center (VCAC); and in February the Alliance For Holistic Living provided an In-Service for Hockanum Valley Community Council counselors introducing holistic approaches for stress reduction.

This newsletter then is to let you know about area resources that you can use. First we call your attention to the practitioners in our 2013 Conscious CT Practitioner Directory. Then mark your calendars for the biennial Greater Vernon Holistic Healthfest that will be held Saturday & Sunday, April 6 & 7 where you can meet and talk with many of our directory practitioners.

2013 Greater Vernon Holistic Healthfest

The big event this spring is the biennial Greater Vernon Holistic Healthfest to be held the weekend of April 6 and 7 at the Vernon Center Middle School, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is a two day fair with over 80 exhibitors each day and 38 workshops and demonstrations over the two days. With different workshops each day, and in some cases exhibitors who will only be available for a single day, it will be worth attending both days. The cost is only $5 per day for all exhibits and workshops. Only once every two years will you find this many area practitioners in one place and this many workshops to learn from. A free raffle will be held and each day will also include a drum circle at 3 p.m. New this year is a Café area where you can have lunch and take a break.

Exhibitors and workshops are being posted online. You are encouraged to read through the workshops as the online description is longer than can be included in the program. If you are on Facebook join our Healthfest Page for updates and information on exhibitors and workshops.

2013 Practitioner Directory

We updated our Holistic Health Practitioner Directory to include all those listed in The Door Opener's annual 2013 statewide directory who practice in our region of the state. There are 32 listings with a wide range of modalities including Holistic Physicians, Naturopathic Physicians, Acupuncturists, Bodyworkers, Energy Practitioners, Psychotherapists, Shamanic Practitioners, Hypnotherapists and Coaches.

Included with the listings are photos, links to practitioner websites and in some cases Business Profiles so that you can more quickly access information about a practitioner and learn what each offers. A few practitioners also include videos for a more personal introduction to their practice.

Of the 32 practitioners listed in our directory, you can meet 16 at Healthfest where they will be exhibiting and of these, 9 will be doing workshops. It's a great opportunity to get to know our practitioners and see how they can help you.
