Weston A. Price Foundation – 2012

Just got back from the Weston A. Price Conference, Wise Traditions 2012, and I didn’t take a single picture.  Geez!  Thankfully, my friend Mallory took the one above, so I can at least prove I was there.  If you squint, that’s Sandor Katz, Author of The Art of Fermentation, selecting cheese from the buffet of the Thursday night event in the background.

This year was the fourth time, and I still like it so much.  Here’s a list of favorites that might inspire you, too…

–  Julia Ross: Author of The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure – She spoke all day Friday, but I only caught her talk on Insomnia.  Her basis for healing is food and supplemental amino acids.  I’d like to learn more.  I ordered The Diet Cure.

–  Sandor Katz: Author of Wild Fermentation and The Art of Fermentation – He’s learned so much about fermenting foods in his life that his knowledge feels deep & simple.  I find that the best always feel that way.  Plus, his personal energy is very solid and centered.  He’s the real deal, and I’d love to take in a weekend seminar with him one day.

–  Chris Kresser: Beyond Paleo – I missed this talk, but I heard it was amazing!  Mom went, so I picked her brain, but I knew I missed the boat when I saw rings of people around him after his talk.  He’s got a Podcast, and I think I’ll start there.

 Joette Calabrese: Homeopathy Works – I’ve always been interested in learning more about Homeopathy, and I think I’ve found the person from whom I’d like to learn.  She’s clear and deeply knowledgeable.  Her site contains lots of great information, and she holds appointments via Skype.

–  Tom Cowan: Fourfold Path to Healing – I don’t quite understand how Dr. Cowan puts a spell on his audience.  He barely knows how to use a chalkboard and certainly doesn’t mess with Powerpoint, but he doesn’t need it.  His message shifts things in a room and opens minds.  He’s like a favorite book.  I could listen to him talk about the same subject time and time again, and I’d still somehow get a whole lot out of it.  This time, he did talk about something new to me.  The Threefold Man and the Fourfold Man – way too complex for me to explain, but I’d suggest getting his book and reading his website.  I just love it.

Next year… Atlanta!  It’ll be in November, and I’m certain it will be good… See you there?

  • Hi Molly!
    I was hoping to see you at the conference again this year – I don’t know how I missed you!

    I’ve been meaning to email you to see if we can set up a time to visit the farm in early 2013. Hope you guys are doing great, and sorry about Gup.
