Rainforest Retreat 

with Paul Bergner, herbalist, naturalist
         Tania Neubauer, ND, clinical herbalist
         Heather Luna, clinical herbalist, clinical nutritionist

When: Sunday, July 7th through Friday July 12th, 2019

Where: Camp Creek Campground near Rhododendron, OR, south of Mt Hood.

Paul Bergner has been bringing his students to make retreat in the rainforest around Mt Hood most years since 1997. This year we are opening the trip to the public, with special discounts to enrolled herbal or naturopathic students from other schools, or to recent graduates.
Throughout history, students and practitioners of Vitalist healing have made retreat in natural settings or wilderness areas. They go for rejuvenation, revitalisation, re-inspiration, for lessons at the foot of Mother Nature, and a deeper vision of their Calling. On this retreat, the healer or student will learn basic concepts and practices of spiritual visioning for the clinical practitioner, techniques for nature observation, and meditation techniques for revitalization. In addition, we will meet approximately 100 plants in five different ecological zones near Mt Hood, OR.
