April 13, 2023

My work has involved teaching in one way or another since the late 1990s.

Over the years I've realized that teaching offers as much learning for me as it does (hopefully!) for the students in my classes or workshops.

The act of preparing to teach helps me to organize and clarify my thinking, even on subjects that I know like the back of my hand. New insights emerge each time I prepare for a class.

The questions people ask and the energy that's co-created in a classroom - virtual or in person - often brings about new insights that I wouldn't have been able to access on my own.

Ultimately this process is part of an evolution and deepening of my own work.

There's so much value in sharing what you know well - both for those in your community and for your own development as a practitioner.

This is why we've been running the Monday Mentoring conference for the past few years.

It's a chance for folks in Monday Mentoring to share their learning, experience, and wisdom with other practitioners so that we can all continue growing. Many of these folks are presenting in a conference setting for the first time, and I'm so excited to hear what they have to say.

This year, we're opening up the sessions for other to attend.

The Monday Mentoring conference is this Saturday (April 15), and you're invited. It's either free or $25 (you choose).

Here are the presentations we have lined up. Each will be 20-30 min, with time for questions.

  • 11 am ET: Greek Medicine: A very brief introduction with Nick Cavanaugh
  • 12 pm ET: Understanding Fertility Labs with Liane Moccia
  • 1 pm ET: Succeed with SIBO with Louise Beach
  • 2 pm ET: Permaculture and Holistic Health with Chris George
  • 3 pm ET: A Case for Topical Medicines with Sia Hanna

Learn more about the classes & presenters and sign up here.

If you can't make it live, you will get access to the recordings, although I encourage you to show up live to support the presenters if you can!

Hope to see you there.

Take care,
