Eat the Aliens: Wild Edibles on Maui!

There are wild foods all around us that have loads of nutrition, microminerals, and prebiotics (that’s the stuff that we cannot digest but that our gut microbes use in order to keep us healthy).

It is estimated that our ancestors ate hundreds of plant species as opposed to the ten or twenty that we eat. Our bodies have evolved phytoreceptors in order to digest this abundance; they now lie dormant. It takes very little foraged plant material to supply this nutrition. And, best of all, Wild Aliens are all around us and they’re free!

Customized Self Defense Classes for All Ages

Here is the page from our website with a few videos on it https://earthmedicineinstitute.com/programs/boundaries-self-defense/

This work is full-contact scenario-based high-adrenaline training in a safe and emotionally supportive environment. One of the many things that we do is train women to bypass their freeze response when in a potentially dangerous situation. In technical terms, we instill healthy responses into what is sometimes termed “Implicit Procedural Memory”… i.e. we essentially condition unconscious habits that can help people stay alive in dangerous situations.

The essence of this work is not “the man in the suit”; it is the pedagogy, the teaching style that allows the conditioning to happen. Because we train women in high adrenaline states, adrenaline becomes their ally. Rather than causing them to freeze, the adrenaline acts as fuel to help them to survive. Using simple powerful techniques and large muscle groups, our students rapidly develop the skill and confidence to navigate situations where their life may be in danger.

However important the physical skills may be, most of the class is focused on how to avoid danger and, if needed, how to deescalate dangerous situations. The vast majority of assaults can be avoided with verbal responses alone. We spend a lot of time on body language, non-verbal cues, the dynamics of sexual assaults, and situational awareness as well as the legal issues in Hawaiʻi of needing to defend oneself in the home, at work, and in public.
