September 2012 integrative practitioner meeting minutes

  1. 1. September 2012 Integrative Practitioner Meeting Minutes:A group of about 15-20 practitioners met to discuss possible topics and themes for the upcomingyear. Below is a list which, of course, is just guidance as we get going. Your input is stillwelcome.We made three commitments: 1. To make the meetings 1 1/2 hours instead of 2. 7-8:30 PM, so that especially the people that have to be here to close up do not get home after 9PM. Come earlier if you like the networking aspect of getting together, as we are going to try to wrap it up earlier this year. 2. To do some self-care or experiential piece each meeting. In some cases the whole class has that focus, but other times we will take turns leading the group in a meditation, or self treatment, etc. 3. October Meeting: Jason Wolstenholme, will present Chi Walking at our October meeting.Topics for 2012: 1. Homeopathy: a.
