Healing Diets teachers, Lindsay Peters & her assistant, Callie Longnecker, provided the healing space & teachings for the summer Healing Diets I class Immersion. This was the first class that Lindsay taught on her own (I was away in Iceland & England) & as all students reported enthusiastically how much they enjoyed the class, clearly she did a brilliant job. Lindsay, on the right, holds a mega delicious platter of marinated walnuts.
Advanced students are given the opportunity in some class subjects, such as Healing Diets, Reflexology, & Essential Oils to become teaching assistants after they have attended their Level III class, as a way to refine teaching skills, receive the benefits of attending further classes without cost, & of course the happiness of creating & enjoying delicious healing diets foods in Healing Diets classes.
Healing Diets teachers & teaching assistants learn how to organize menus, make shopping lists, clean, prepare and set out foods and equipment, demonstrate liver cleanse drinks, seed and nut milks and more. Most of all they receive the benefit of attending classes with new mixes of old, new & advanced students, participate in Self Healing process & gain confidence to eventually hold their own classes. Callie on the left helps prepare the Liver Cleanse Tea which is taken after the Liver Cleanse Drink of grapefruit, lemon, ginger, garlic & olive oil.
Callie attended the full Level I, II, III Healing Diets Immersion a year ago, and then moved to Boulder, to be near the School. She works at Vitamin Cottage Natural Grocers and sometimes assists Farida with the School of Natural Medicine garden.
Lindsay Peters enrolled in March 2014, began with a Healing Diets class in April 2014, and continued taking classes, working passionately on the Self Healing Module & Online Courses, eventually becoming both a teaching assistant & Farida’s personal assistant. Lindsay completes all her classes this autumn, &plans to graduate in 2016 by attending the Clinical Training Retreat.
We also featured another new teacher in this class, Renate McConathy, who has extensive experience & study of the Gerson Therapy. She is featured in the next post.
