Are you interested in a weekend of relaxation and learning? Then I hope you’ll join me for the first ThePaleoMom Workshop and Retreat plus ThePaleoMom Masterclass (bonus day) over the President’s Day long weekend in February 2019!
ThePaleoMom Workshop and Retreat – February 15-17, 2019
On President’s Day long weekend(February 15-17, 2019), I will be hosting a weekend-long workshop and retreat at an inspiring, new, and unique learning center in the redwoods of Santa Cruz County, California—1440 Multiversity! Read more below about the optional bonus day, ThePaleoMom Masterclass!
The 2-day workshop will run from Friday evening until lunchtime on Sunday. I will be giving 8.5 hours of seminar during this 2-day event. The curriculum will include the following topics:
- An introduction to the Paleo diet and lifestyle
- Modifying the Paleo diet for chronic disease (diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer)
- An introduction to the Autoimmune Protocol
- Gut health and the Microbiome
Recharge your health journey with the latest science-grounded information! I firmly believe that understanding how foods affect our health at the cellular level is an essential motivator for making positive and lasting change, as well as being critical to the self-discovery processes of finding individual tolerance and respecting bioindividuality.
My teaching style is dynamic and fun, while also tackling advanced scientific topics in an approachable way that is accessible to everyone. The seminars will be appropriate for beginners and experts alike, bridging the experience divide with both introductory information, intermediate concepts, recent advances, and cutting-edge new ideas. Don’t be intimidated if you’re new to Paleo or the AIP and don’t think you’re going to be bored if you’ve read all of my books!
In between seminars, you’ll have the opportunity to take yoga, meditation, or movement classes; go walking in the redwoods; exercise at the Fitness Center; visit campus cafés; or enjoy time to rest. You can also book a massage or nourishing body treatment at the Healing Arts center, browse campus shops, or meet a friend for hot tea or a glass of wine.
Meals are included in the cost of this workshop and retreat.
ThePaleoMom Masterclass – February 17-18, 2019
Stay an extra day for the optional ThePaleoMom Masterclass, which will run from Sunday afternoon until lunchtime on Monday. I will be giving an additional 5 hours of seminar during this bonus third day!
This masterclass will tackle challenging and controversial topics, including busting some common myths that can actually harm your health instead of improve it. The curriculum will include the following topics:
- Healthy weight loss
- Recovery following a ketogenic diet and other fad diets
Learn about the limitations of dietary guidelines that do not take the connectivity of biological systems and the complexity of inputs to health into account. In the age of the internet, misinformation, and crafty marketing campaigns, it’s more important than ever to be empowered with knowledge and the ability to critically assess claims.
This masterclass will build on the foundational information covered in The Paleo Mom Workshop and Retreat.
