Wellness is a daily endeavor. It requires care and conscious decision making to maintain optimal health. Too often the health care industry sells itself as the health cure industry. But we, the holistic health community, know that in reality, prevention is the only sustainable cure!

Learn how to create and support wellness while experiencing wellness first-hand at our six-day, five-night Green Your Life in 2009 retreat. ACHS faculty, staff, graduates and guest presenters will guide you through a series of presentations, workshops, and nature-based outdoor sessions addressing issues like: practical techniques for greening your life; green foods and herbs that promote prevention; and what does your sustainable wellness lifestyle look like.

The ACHS Wellness Retreat is a social and educational wellness event open to the ACHS advisory board, faculty, students, and the community.

Sessions will include workshops, information sessions, demonstrations, roundtable discussions including point/counterpoint, and author discussions, where authors guide discussions on their books and conduct signings.

Sessions already proposed include: The Secret to Healthy Kids, Balancing Chakras, Organic Gardening, Hand-on Iridology Workshop, Distillation Workshop, Wildcrafting Workshop, and more!
