About the Solihull Natural Health Group

 

The Solihull Natural Health Group was founded in 1981 by Ann Harper SRN and Christine Jones, Chartered Physiotherapist.  At that time, natural therapies were treated with suspicion, and they were conscious that care and consideration were necessary in dealing with them [ homoeopathy, acupunture, reflextherapy, herbal remedies and others]. They wanted to work alongside rather than against the more orthodox views and shaped the programme accordingly.  This has been proven to be right because many have now been accepted and absorbed into mainstream health.
 
They organised a series of talks under the heading "We are what we eat and we become what we think".  These talks looked at topics such as how the body works,  dietary needs, cooking healthy foods, lifestyles to cope with the mental and physical stresses of present day living, and thoughts on how to plan for the future. They ran no less than 10 of these courses and, over the years,  seminars, workshops and lectures on specific subjects have been organised.

Speakers have included well known names such as Dr Gordon Latto, Medical Practioner, Naturopath and President of the International Vegetarian Society,  Patrick Holford, Dietician, Robert Holden,  Author of "Laughter is the Best Medicine", Jack Temple, Dowser and Healer and Peter Dawkins, Philosopher, Author and Director of The Francis Bacon Research Trust.  The group also ran courses on astrology and held regular meditation evenings, not forgetting occasional visits to herb gardens and to the crop circles at Avebury.
 
Our Founder, Ann Harper, has recently stepped down from her place on the committee and the group is now led jointly by Jacqui Mexson and Paul Cooper, together with a dedicated committee.  It is a lively and friendly group and still very much a going concern, though perhaps with a subtle change in approach.  Despite the fact that so much information is now available via all avenues of the media it is found that people of like mind still want to meet on a regular basis to share ideas and extend their knowledge.

Forthcoming Events

The Children's Fire

27 November 2019

 

Tuesday 18th February 2020

Guest Speaker: Mac Macartney, Author, Activist and  International Speaker

Many hundreds of years ago the story and teaching of The Children’s Fire  emerged from the indigenous people of North America as a message to all those who flirt with power.  The Children's Fire was a small fire that burnt in the centre of the council of chiefs reminding them of the first law, the first promise: 

'No law, no decision, no action of any kind, will be permitted to go out from this council of chiefs that will harm the children'.

In this talk Mac Macartney shares how he came to pledge allegiance to the Children’s Fire and accept the challenge of his indigenous mentors to unfold the story of who we once were as a people, in these islands.  Mac speaks of hope, belonging, and homecoming.

Venue: Oliver Bird Hall, Church Hill Road, Solihull, B91 3RQ

Time:   Doors open 7pm with refreshments served until talk commences at 7.45pm
