A Holistic Approach to Living and Healing with Lilian Bern

lilianfaceLilian Bern will be speaking on A Holistic Approach to Living and Healing on Wed. April 24th  from 11:30-1 pm in the Pavilion

There is a health crisis in this country, (in costs, in amounts of chronic physical, mental and relational illness) . We need to create a new understanding, so people know that it is totally different to control symptoms and fight illness, than to promote Health and Wellbeing. I will compare and contrast the current medical model with a Holistic Approach, which is not just about using alternative modalities.


                                    PROFFESSIONAL BIOGRAPHIC SKETCH

I am a Healer, Motivational Speaker and Teacher. I use transformational communication, imagery and energy work to create change. My goal is to help you improve the quality of your inner and outer life, your relationships, your health and your contributions to our world. My other goal is to help diminish suffering for all beings. Tall order? Yes! Possible? Certainly!

I work with all aspects: Mind, Body, Spirit, Emotions, Relationships and Environment. My approach is a blend of Psychology, Biology, Spirituality and hands on Healing.

Qualifications: I have a graduate degree in Psychology and in Women’s Studies and a license as a Marriage, Family and Child Therapist. I am certified as a Non-Denominational Minister, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Neürolinguistic Programmer and Cellular Trauma  Release Practitioner, and I have a California Community College Lifetime Teaching Credential in Psychology.

Since I was a small child I had a keen sense of observation, and intuitively knew some things that many other people did not know, that later turned out to be factual truth. I have been professionally working with people for 40 years, so I have lots of experience with virtually every kind of person and every kind of problem and trauma. I have worked with individuals, couples and groups in California, Arkansas and Mexico, and have been the founder and co-director of several pioneering non-profits.

In Santa Rosa, CA: One of the first battered Women’s Shelters in this country; A Special Place: a Center for the treatment and prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect; Chrysalis Counseling Services, a sliding scale clinic in which Psychology, Social Work and  Therapy Interns acquired the necessary supervised practicum hours to become licensed. In Sacramento, CA. the Sexual Assault Treatment Program for WEAVE  (women escaping violent environments).  I have given presentations to Schools, Hospitals, Police Departments, Professional Groups and Conferences. I have worked in collaboration with Medical Doctors, Chiropractors and Attorneys, succeeding in improving and healing many difficult and complicated cases.

I have a Private Practice outside of Rogers, AR., and because my services are unique, people come to see me from other cities, and I travel to different areas, states and countries to provide them.

I have a multicultural background, am bi-lingual in Spanish and English, and charge on a sliding scale, by the hour and depending on the type of service.  Fees are from $60 to $ 240 per hour.

Best way to contact me is by phone between 9 am and 9 pm, for a brief evaluation of your needs.

Quality Holistic Healthcare for Those Without Money

dcodaD’Coda: Herbalist, Forager, Seed Saver will speak on “Quality Holistic Healthcare for Those Without Money” Wednesday April 24, 10-11am in the Pavilion

During the ten years she lived in the Hurricane Creek Wilderness Preserve, D’Coda became known as the “Wild Woman” of Arkansas due to her solitary dependence on the forest for survival. Alongside her study and use of indigenous forest botanicals she also developed extensive permaculture gardens to conserve endangered food and medicinal plants where the focus was on saving pure seed with up to 500 species and varieties in her collection.

Among those who discovered her work were Dr. Brian Campbell (professor of agricultural anthropology), Kent Bonar (see the documentary The Naturalist on Netflix), Dr. Justin Nolan (professor of ethno-biology – U. of A.) and herbalist, Holly Ferguson (American Botanical Council). An alliance was formed whereby she helped Dr. Campbell develop the Conserving Arkansas’ Agricultural Heritage seed saving project. Dr. Campbell also invited her to present at the Ozark Cultural Symposium in Missouri.

Dr. Nolan sponsored her and Kent Bonar, as featured guests to the international Ethnobotany Symposium at the University of Arkansas where both were filmed for a documentary.

Primitive skills students from the Ozark Tracker’s Society regularly hiked into the wilderness to study edible food and medicinal plants with Kent and D’Coda up until she left the wilderness in 2009.

Since then she has re-located to another area of the Arkansas outback, joining curandera, Maria Christina Moroles, at Rancho Arco Iris near Boxley. She has continued teaching and founded an online herbal school called The Herbal Coaching Community. Currently, she offers classes at Flora Roja Community Acupuncture Clinic in Eureka Springs; wild plant intensives at a wilderness sanctuary called Wild Magnolia; and will be one of the presenters at Herbalismo, a gathering of herbalists in Austin Texas in October of 2013.
