Kamran Mangral

Homeopathy and New Age Science

Kamran Mangral

Kamran Mangral. UK qualified pharmacist since 1997. Saw the light when a homeopath (pharmacist too) shocked me with the news he never vaccinated any of his children because vaccines are dangerous. This was in 2005. Since then slowly but surely realised that pharmaceuticals and conventional medicine don't cure people. Over the years I have observed, read and tried stuff myself which have given me this conviction. Still practising as a pharmacist but always try to give the alternative option. I am also a certified GAPS practitioner and a devoted homeschooling parent of 6 beautiful children.

Hayden Hammerling

Millennial age thought on agronomy and permaculture

Hayden Hammerling

I'm Hayden. A dreamer, an adventurer, a lover, and, most importantly, somebody who plans to change how we, as human-beings, interact with the world.

Through dialogue and action I hope to bring about changes (both big ones and little ones) to the modern, unconscious systems of farming and commerce that heedlessly drain this world of raw materials and pollute us with avoidable toxins.

Through the vehicle of experience and travel, through the lens of stories and wisdom, and the rough the feel of hard work and sweat I find what it means to care and what it means to fight for what is good and pure. Leaving footprints in the mountains, valleys and deserts of our country, traveling, listening, learning, engaging people, working on organic farms and homesteads, or trading work for room-and board, I slowly increase my knowledge and expand my voice.

***Hayden has a BS in Environmental Science and is a certified Building Maintenance Technician. His skills range from fixing a circuit board to rescuing a dying tomato plant. He is currently pursuing an education in Solar Photovoltaics, Permaculture design, and Sustainable development at the Solar Living Institute in Hopland, CA.

Christina

Christina

I’m Christina, a budding Medicine Woman, plant-based chef and healer. I strive to deeply understand the most pure & natural ways that our divine planet flows and channel that power to aid in healing (both a self & globally). From home-made herbal salves & lotions to raw, vegan cheesecakes, I find immense beauty in the simplicity of crafting medicine from nature. My most authentic happiness is found when I am enthusiastically roaming through forests, swimming in oceans, or breathing deeply atop mountains. I take those moments to connect, listen to the land, and expand my understanding.

Although I am just a drop of water in the grand expanse of the ocean, I believe that with enough drops flowing together we can make this ocean truly beautiful. Through words, spoken in a mindful & positive way, I hope to make a change; a change that can lead to a more socially just, sustainable, & ecologically secure planet.

Christina has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Scranton and Montclair State. She has interned extensively with sustainable organic farms, ranging from bee farms to a small apple orchard, and can turn almost anything into a delectable dish. Christina is currently working towards an education in Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and a Yoga Teacher Training (TTC). She is traveling to Dharamsala, India for the month of April to complete her 200 hour yoga TTC at Trimurti Yoga. Following this, Christina, is applying to Tufts Nutrition school where she will then receive a Graduate Certification in Nutrition.
