How do we transform our many worries and fears into positive energy and confidence? How can we navigate through the turmoil of change and embrace life with a flexible mind and spirit? This workshop was designed to respond to some of the urgent questions received from our community over our last two years of teaching on the island. As we encounter increased levels of uncertainty and instability in the outside world, it is essential for us to connect to that deepest sense of truth and strength we hold within. When we consider what factors make up the dignity of a human being, love and courage must come very high up on the list. What is a human being who cannot love freely and fully? And what is a person who flees from life’s challenges, lacking the courage to prevail? Such a person is incapable of supporting a healthy society or safeguarding a healthy world. This workshop offers a training towards an alternative: how to cultivate inner calm and the strength to look at things as they are, whilst creatively imagining how they might be improved. After all, everything starts with a single individual in relationship with just one other individual.
This workshop is for people who are on a quest for self development and who wish to lead a life with greater insight into our emotional anatomy and our human potential.
We invite you to take this opportunity to gain a new perspective on the human spirit and on your inner landscape. This workshop offers wisdom and specialized techniques that will strengthen your sense of confidence, and your ability to act with love and courage.

This weekend workshop offers a unique opportunity to learn how to protect your health from environmental nuclear contamination.
In Friday Harbor, like most of the West Coast, we have been continuously inundated with high levels of fallout from Japan, yet no warnings have been issued by authorities. We and our loved ones are all at risk.
Nuclear radiation is something we can’t see, can’t smell, can’t touch, yet it can be present at high quantities in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the foods we eat. The levels are rising insidiously, yet no-one is telling us about it.
This workshop presents real health remedies and solutions in a serene, retreat-like setting on top of Little Mountain, on San Juan Island. Offered by Friday Harbor Holistic Health, presenters include: Nicholas Corrin, Ayur.ED, L.Ac., M.S.O.M., who has condensed years of clinical experience and research into viable alternative medicines; Debbie Lee, a macrobiotic chef trained at the Kushi Institute and a certified macrobiotic nutritionist; and Katerina Wen, M.Ed., master yoga teacher and co-creator of the Infinite Body program (TM).
This holistic experience will combine teachings on radio-protection, hands on cooking classes for preparing delicious detox dishes, plus therapeutic movements designed to harmonize, detox and heal the body. You will learn:
- live saving health information on how to protect your body from radioactive toxins
- which plants, minerals and antioxidants are most vital
- how to cook healing, protective and delicious foods
- how to use mind-body techniques to calm yourself and fortify your resistance.
You will experience:
- a retreat like setting
- new taste sensations
- a greater sense of preparedness
- rejuvenative elixirs that protect your cells
- the pleasure of learning together with like-minded people
