AGENDA & SPEAKERS’ LIST TO FOLLOW
We have reached a crisis of health. There is a need for a new paradigm that can lead us to greater support for our health and well-being. We need to develop a model that is grounded in more natural approaches, which reflect our connection to and dependence on the Earth.
Indigenous cultural and ceremonial protocols will be followed each day.
The Roundtable will be led by Elder Facilitators Dave Courchene – Nii Gaani Aki Inini (Leading Earth Man) and Chi-Kung Grand Master Sifu Dr. Stanley Ngui.
