New Old Way: Reflections on Health Habitat Connection
June 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
New Old Way: Reflections on the health-habitat connection, Frank Forencich
Join community and friends in the Wenatchee River Institute’s Red Barn on Wednesday, June 19 for author and movement teacher Frank Forencich’s presentation and slide show New Old Way: Reflections on the health-habitat connection. Forencich will guide us in exploring the nature of the human-habitat connection. Doors will open at 6:30pm for community social and no-host refreshments, with the presentation beginning at 7pm.
In conversations about health, Forencich recognizes that most of our attention is focused on diet, exercise and more recently, stress. He wants us to understand, however, that the natural world is an essential part of our physical, mental and spiritual function and that if we neglect this element, or worse, destroy our natural surroundings, we would greatly compromise our health, our future, and even our sanity. In New Old Way, Forencich will share research and ideas that reveal the deep and essential unity of body and habitat, and suggest some ways we can all do better.
Forencich has worked at the intersection of health, biology, ecology and athletics for over 30 years. As a speaker and movement teacher, he brings a unique perspective to the human predicament and offers practical solutions for some of the most pressing problems of our age. Forencich is known to be a superb public speaker –articulate, knowledgeable, and passionate in his presentations. He has an enlightening and entertaining interactive style that captivates audiences, offering unique and practical advice.
“Frank Forencich’s engaging and passionate call to action strives to awaken inspiration, awareness and contagious hope within each of us. It takes bold steps towards shaping a much-needed narrative as we embark on this journey to unlock our personal and planetary potential,” Susan Prescott MD, author of The Secret Life of Your Microbiome.
Earning a BA in Human Biology from Stanford University, Forencich is the author of several books relating to health and the human predicament including Exuberant Animal, Beautiful Practice, New Old Way, and The Exuberant Animal Experience: Teacher’s Guide to Philosophy, physicality and rapport. He is a member of Council of Directors of the True Health Initiative, holds black belt ranks in karate and aikido, and was a contributor to Paleo Magazine, 2012-2016.
