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.

Conference registration $325. To register, call ACHS at (800) 487-8839 or email: Book your accommodation directly with Breitenbush. Call (503) 854-3320. Rates range from $100 to $120 per night including meals.
