Village Medicine:  Healing the Individual, the Earth and Medicine Itself
We hope you can join us for this very special PrairieCare educational workshop:

Medicine is a culture.  The ways we practice medicine determine the ways we live.  When the sacred act of healing is subordinated to economic interests, institutional disconnection and military language, then such patterns also dominate our culture and lives and can, unwittingly, do great harm. Village Medicine revisions healing and re-establishes the intrinsic relationship between the practitioner, the individual who is suffering and the greater community. Likewise, it calls us to bring healing to the Earth, to all beings and to the institution of Western Medicine itself.  It is a practice of mind and heart that seeks single gestures and responses that can, simultaneously, bring healing to the person suffering and beyond to all our relations, even to the past and equally to the future. “Village Medicine is a field of intelligence, inter-dependence and heart”

Deena Metzger, PhD is a poet, novelist, essayist, storyteller, teacher, healer and medicine woman who has taught and counseled for over fifty years. She is the author of nearly 20 books. She works with writers to develop their literary voices essential for this time and she is a mentor to those who are seeking their own paths to be healing presences for the future. She also works with groups on the spiritual, creative, political, and ethical aspects of healing and peace-making, for individuals, communities, and the globe. As a lifelong learner, Deena travels extensively learning from indigenous elders throughout the world who refer to her as a “Healer of Healers.”

“Adverse Childhood Experiences 2.0- Understanding ACEs: Resiliency focus”
The Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study findings represent a paradigm shift in human understanding of the origins of physical, social mental and societal health and well-being. We now know that leading causes of disease and disability, learning and productivity problems, and early death have their roots in the cumulative neurodevelopmental impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs).

The Understanding ACEs: Building Self-Healing Communities presentation provides information about the ACE study, along with neurobiology that explains why ACEs impact people’s lives, and what we can all do to dramatically improve health and resilience for this and future generations.
