A Primer for Sustainable Living

Sustainable living is more than a passing trend, but many practitioners (or those who want to be) often lack practical information on how to successfully live off the land, especially when it comes to raising farm animals. Lifelong farmer, homesteader and Owen County native, Bill Pursell, guides participants through important considerations associated with urban farming. Classes will cover the following; site and animal selection, land / water management, and gardening. Bill pulls the class together by also examining the business of urban farming, including budget and tax considerations, trading, marketing, and auctioning, as well as other topics of that will be of particular interest to future farmers.

Emotional Freedom Techniques ™ (EFT), commonly called “tapping,” is based upon the 5,000 year old Eastern medicine energy meridian system. Like acupuncture, EFT stimulates the body’s acupressure points but with fingertip tapping, not needles. EFT has been shown to provide relief from chronic pain and other physical symptoms, negative emotions, addictions, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, stres s and anxiety, limiting beliefs, and more.

Using EFT for Stress Release

In this highly experiential workshop, you will learn to address your symptoms of stress and the issues that cause it with the amazing and simple tool of EFT. You will not only feel better physically but also emotionally. Relaxation is immediate. And since EFT is a self-help tool, you will be able to use EFT in your daily life as stressful situations arise thereby keeping too much stress at bay and your life in balance.
