Holistic Mentorship Network Fundraiser Honors 9/11’s First Responders
The Holistic Membership Network (HMN) has teamed up with the Feal Good Foundation in a fundraiser that will serve as a day of remembrance and healing for the heroic 9/11 first responders, and the holistic practitioners who aided their recovery, at Brotherhood Winery in Washingtonville, N.Y., on September 11, 2011. A $10 donation at the door (children 12 and under admitted free) includes a commemorative healing session at 9:00 a.m., followed by breakfast, several bands—including Sharon Silverstein and the Peace Project—additional healing sessions throughout the day, dinner, a guest speaker, and a candlelight ceremony in remembrance of all whose lives were lost on 9/11. The daylong event also features various healers and holistic practitioners, more than thirty vendors, and catered fresh and local produce.
As Garrett Winton, chairman and fundraising coordinator of the Project Planet Network, HMN’s environmental arm, says, “It’s been ten years and people are still suffering.” He adds that many are still fighting to have treatments—including those by holistic practitioners—covered by their health insurance.
“Through this event we hope to raise awareness of the huge benefits that alternative healthcare can and will bring to the healthcare system we have right now,” said Linda Mitchell, founder of HMN, an international nonprofit trade association for holistic and wellness professionals that serves as an advocate for its members.
