Food Energetics; is as much a course as it is personal support to improve your own health and wellbeing. All foods possess energetics having specific actions on our body and emotions.  Lori takes a full case history about your health past and present. She will prepare a food plan to address your specific health needs through the medicinal use of seasonal food.  Lori will work with you for one year giving you a new food plan at the beginning of each season and you will be provided with her e-book on Food Energetics with seasonal recipes to inspire you.

Mindfulness meditation: is for anyone living with stress, anxiety or pain.  It is also for anyone who just wants to learn ‘how to get the day before the day gets you.’ Mindfulness is the science of using the breath to control our response to stress, anxiety and pain by slowing down the chemical messengers from the brain that release cortisol,  keeping us in a constant state of alertness. Lori has practised and taught mindfulness since 1974. She teaches one to one or as a couple, over an 8 week course.  You will be given her course book with the techniques she teaches and she will remain available to mentor you beyond the 8 weeks.
