Busy Season for Bethany Staffieri & Concentric Rings
October 19, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsDRG Media – October 19, 2007: Concentric Rings™, the vision of creator Bethany Staffieri, announced today that Bethany Staffieri will be involved in several major engagements in and out of the country over the next few months. Staffieri is slated to speak at two major events in California and, through Concentric Rings™, has developed trips to workshops in Yelapa, Mexico for January of next year.
The first stop for Staffieri will be a nursing job fair presented by Gannett Healthcare Group / Nursing Spectrum, Nurse Week, CE Direct & Nurse.com. This fair takes place October 18th, 2007 in Oakland, California. Next, Staffieri will visit the Sonoma County Herb Association located at New College in Santa Rosa, California to give a talk on November 14th.
“I want to educate people about a model of alternative healing — a knowledge that honors the human body and the health of the planet we all share,” said Staffieri. “Concentric Rings™ is designed to send this gathering of healing knowledge radiating outward into communities, creating a ripple or concentric ring of information that I hope will inspire people enough to ponder the question, “Why is it important for you to become more responsible for your own health care?"
Following these stops are two special trips to Yelapa, Mexico which will feature workshops on South American herbalism. Healing Wisdom Of The Americas: An Introductory Workshop Of Mexican Herbalism will be held January 16-24 and January 25-February 2 of 2008 in Yelapa, which is located in the state of Jalisco on the Bay of Banderas. The area features an elegant eco-retreat for participants to reside in for this unique nine-day experience. During that time, participants will be able to expand their knowledge of local healing methods known throughout Central America as “Curanderismo”. Featuring fifteen classes ranging from herbal plant walks to spiritual energy healing, this workshop will be memorable for all involved.
“Our healers and locations are carefully selected to offer the group a rich experience of local healing traditions and customs,” said Staffieri. “Our participants say that the information they have gotten from our workshops has not only been healing, but for many, life transforming. This is an invitation to people who seek healthy alternatives for living a more sustainable life.”
About Bethany Staffieri and Concentric Rings™
Bethany Staffieri’s travels to South America began as a personal initiation into healing. She was seeking a different kind of health care than the one offered in the United States.
Bethany is trained and certified as a Western Herbalist, but the herbalism she experienced in South America was deeper and richer. Concern as to how this knowledge will survive into the next generation is now the question as modern technology shifts the focus away from traditional healing ways. Bethany has taught Herbalism throughout Northern California and is a permaculture consultant, naturalist / tracker, artist-BFA and holds a core position within her communities’ Elder Council.
