You know you’re a Wise Traditions foodie when your phone is full of pictures of your children’s meals!
This picture was shared by one of our community members in our Nourished Children group on Facebook, with the following comment, “Just wanted to say hello and share my toddler’s dinner. Organic/local beef liver, carrots in ghee, homemade sauerkraut and cooked apples with cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric. What nutrient dense foods are your little ones having tonight?” If you haven’t already, request to join our support group and view photos of children of all ages eating the kind of nutrient-dense meals we recommend!
I used this introduction to share about the Weston A. Price Foundation’s Wise Traditions Conference because it is an excellent opportunity to learn about how to nourish ourselves and our children. This year the conference, focused on “Taking Our Health to New Heights”, will be held in Minneapolis, MN November 10-13. Of particular interest to our community are the following talks focused on fertility and/or children:
Carrie Clark, DC: Baby Body Brain: A Traditional Approach to Nutrition and Optimal Development from Preconception through the Early Years
Carrie Clark, DC: How to Nourish your Family without Losing Your Mind
Cilla Whatcott, PhD, HD, RHom, CCH: Real Immunity: Educate the Immune System Using Homeoprophylaxis
Tim O’Shea, DC: Detoxification Protocol for Autistics and Other Vaccine Injured
Pam Schoenfeld, RD: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
See the full conference schedule which features a number of talks on hormonal health this year. There are 36 scheduled speakers, 19 of whom are presenting for the first time and there rest of whom are mainly presenting on new topic. To make the conference more affordable, this year the Weston A. Price Foundation is offering day, weekend an full conference passes. In addition, you can attend an all-day seminar on traditional diets presented by Sally Fallon Morell with lunch included for $60. There is an educational children’s program available as well and a discount offered to one parent of a children enrolled in children’s program.
This year will be my thirteenth conference! Why do I keep going back?
I find it to be a deeply nourishing experience on all levels! It is educational, with new content being presented every year. It is a family reunion of sorts whereby I visit with people in our community that I’ve developed relationships with over the years. I meet new people as well, and enjoy that so much! I love the communal meals, and not having to worry about whether the chef is using vegetable oils, or if the animals have been fed soy, or worse. I know that the conference organizers only choose hotels that make their own homemade broth. I highly recommend the conference as an opportunity to learn, to connect, and to be inspired.

I would like to attend the Weston A. Price Conference this year because it is in the Midwest and closer to me than usual. I am a WAP chapter leader and have been for years. I do not attend many conferences (attending all of them would be nice) basically because of finances. Because of various circumstances in my life, and being single, money is very tight for me at the present time. Hopefully that will change in the future. I look forward to the Wise Traditions Journal every quarter for the wonderful articles. I have a few heroes in my life and Sally Fallon is at the top of my list!
Because I need a kick in the pants to get back on track and I think this Wise Traditions conference would be just the ticket.
As is written above, to enter:
1. Let me know why you’d like to attend in at least 5 sentences in the comments and
2. Be sure to include the words Wise Traditions in your comment!
1. I have family in the neighborhood that I have not seen in many years. As well as my old teammate from Scouts, 1st Batt., 1st Marines, Cpl. Roland Mass.
2. We are developing a A2A2 herd of Normande cattle. Those genetics are in that neighborhood also.
3. I farm in Texas, in the Certified Wholistic™ style – Falster Farm on Pasture 365™ – and would like to come as an attendee rather than a vendor.
4. My wife Nancy could get away to enjoy some time together at a financially acceptable rate for us.
5. Wise Traditions is the cooking style that saved my life from the physical hell of Agent Orange acquired in Viet Nam, and while Nancy does all the cooking, I’d very much like to know more about the whys the style has been so effective for me.
6. We would like to see y’all again, Nancy is regular contact, but I’ve not had the pleasure since Dallas.
To attend the Wise Traditions Conference in Minneapolis, MN, November 2017 would allow me to be immersed in a crowd of others destined for nourished greatness! I’ve always felt that the magazine should feature a “healthy teen” category because that feels like the true test of wisdom, magic, and luck, and hard work for the household cook, especially because many moms by the time their children are that age, are back at work part or full time! Though not of Nordic stock, Minnesota is where I grew up. Having the conference paid for would help me to fly home to Minnesota to visit my fabulous father, my sister’s farm (Seven Songs Farm in Kenyon, MN), and learn more about nourishing people and the land that we grow our food on. There are many people in W. Mass who work to feed hungry people right here at home. The Conference is a great place to be infused with more information about and conviction for feeding people with the 7th generation in mind. I want to always do my part to promulgate the principles of deeply nourishing food growing and preparation.
Sandrine, As a WAPF chapter co-leader and mentor to young moms, I am super excited to share the WAPF principles and Wise Traditions way to prepare foods. Along with hosting a table at our local farmer’s market this summer, hosted a Weston Price table at our local farm expo and will do so again at Mother Earth News in October. Teaching people the Wise Traditions way in the kitchen is my passion so attending the conference is a great learning opportunity for me so I can better share with others. Help with the financial costs would greatly help me better support Wise Traditions!
I would love to attend the conference for both continuing education and personal reasons. I became certified as a Nutritional Therapy practitioner last November and am always eager to learn more. Two months after receiving my certification, I delivered a healthy baby boy. I would love to pass on the Wise Traditions to my now 8 month old. What a gift it would be to be surrounded by like minded folks eager to spread good health!
Learning the Wise Traditions, Sally Fallon Morrell methods are crucial for good health. Attending the Wise Traditons conference in Minn,MN this November would be of tremendous value to my family as I retire and go back to traditonal foods and cooking on a full time basis for myself, my husband and teaching my daughter and her family as well. I have the books and try to do as much as I can but learning at a conference would be invaluable. Teaching the younger generation to cook and eat properly for their health is so important. Thank The Weston A Price Foundation for all they do!
Wise traditions philosophy’s and support played and integral part in healing myself from autoimmune disease and being able to conceive after 5 years of infertility. I now want to return the gift and teach others , especially woman, how they can heal their bodies and have vibrant pregnancy s that make incredible babies. For me, illness liberated a passion and I would be eternally grateful to continue my education at the conference this year.
I’d love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference this year! I was diagnosed with PCOS at the age of 18 and was told I may never be able to have children. After marrying and trying to conceive for five years, God’s grace and some strategic WAPF principles finally turned the tide. We now have five children. :) I have a special interest in the management of PCOS and how diet relates to fertility and the health of our children. This year’s conference sounds like another great one. Thanks for the chance to win an entry!
I would feel over the moon blessed to be able to go! I am from Canada, and this Wise Traditions conference is only 6 hours away! I have never attended before. As our Canadian dollar is weaker than the USD, this would make it possible for me to go! Another friend and I are thinking of starting a WAPF chapter in our part of the province. I have two little guys ( 2 & 4) , and I have a real heart to teach mamas how to nourish their little ones. I teach sourdough , fermented veggies, rendering fats, and fermented bubbly drinks courses. Thank-you for considering me for the Wise Traditions conference:)
I would love to attend the WAPF Wise Traditions Conference in Minnesota this year as I love everything it has to offer and it is closer to where I live. I have been to a few conferences and always return home with a wealth of information and tools to continue my nutrient dense whole foods lifestyle. Because of Sally Fallon, the WAPF and Wise Traditions Conferences, I was inspired to help others discover optimal health through nutrient dense whole foods. I recently completed my certification with the Nutritional Therapy Association as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. It is so gratifying to help others connect the dots and improve their health! With starting a new practice/business, I am always looking to continue my education and the Wise Traditions Conference is a great way to do that!
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference. I have only been to one conference but eagerly look forward to attending again someday. The information shared is so important. I love to be re-inspired in new ways in this lifestyle. I love meeting others who feel passionately about nourishing ourselves and the future generations. I would love to take my daughter to the event as well so that she can experience the children’s porgrams.
I’d love to meet you Lydia! You are one of my long time Facebook friends I’ve never met!
Thanks! I’d love to meet you too!!
Thanks! I’d love to meet you too!!
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference this year! We recently had our third son & I have been in a huge growing season with learning to feed & nourish these little boys! We’ve gone through different health issues and I’m trying to hard to learn what’s right and best as we try to follow WAPF as best we can. I love learning about nutrition as it has been my passion since I was very young since my mother helped instill that for me. It would also be a nice treat for me as a mini vacay since I’m a stay at home mom and don’t get chances to learn and grow like this as much as I’d like to! It would be such a blessing to attend since we otherwise could not financially afford it. Thank you for the opportunity!
I would like to attend the Wise Traditions Conference this year in Minneapolis. For one, I’ve never been to the annual conference. I am a Chapter Leader and would especially like to attend this year’s conference of taking our health to new heights, both for myself and own family, as well as for others where I live. I would like to connect with like minded people at the conference, learn and be inspired. And to come home and be able to pass on what I have learned with enthusiasm.
Well…I’m wise enough to practice Wise Traditions, so I am certainly wise enough to recognize a sweet deal when I see one. And this is a REALLY sweet one! And this ‘sweetener’ will not mess with my body’s healthy PH…just a measure of pure authentic generosity. Thanks WP for this offer. My best to the winner.
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference in Minneapolis this year as I have never been able to attend one, and this would be close enough to drive. I have missed going to conferences since my income dropped by 75%. I love the inspiration that comes from hearing speakers live. I have read about the delicious and healthful meals that are served, and would be eager to try them. I also know that the vendors are careful chosen, and it would be very worthwhile to visit the exhibits. Thank you for considering me.
Hi Sandrine! I would love to make this year my first to attend the Wise Traditions conference. I have never attended before! I’ve been eating traditionally since I was pregnant with my son 11 years ago. I have created a business around helping moms find and feed real food and use real products. I even make tallow balm myself! I just love this way of eating and can’t wait to spend time around like-minded people.
Hello Sandrine! So nice of you to offer this registration opportunity. I have attended the last 5 of 6 Wise Traditions conferences. Every time I attend I think, “What would I have done without the information I just learned at the conference?”. I tell everyone that they will not regret the time and money spent if they go to the conference! They will be happy for having attended and will be blessed with new friends. And, for professionals used to traveling and attending professional conferences, the Wise Traditions is a unique experience in that it is the only time we can travel and eat the same healthy, traditionally prepared food that we feed ourselves at home.
I was following a pretty strict vegetarian diet (occasional egg, fish, bit of cheese) when I was pregnant and breastfeeding my first child. When I was ready to start weaning him I started to look closer at the food that I was eating, the food that I thought was healthy. As I started to research I found the Wise Traditions diet and the work of the Weston A. Price foundation. We started him on raw milk and yogurt soon after that. Everyone is so impressed at his “adult” palate and the fact that he would ask to drink a cup of plain homemade kefir! With my second I ate lard, butter, meat, pastured eggs, etc. After she was born everyone commented on how beautiful and round her face was, I have to think that it was because of the difference in my diet this time around! I would love to attend the conference so that I could continue to learn how to feed my family nutrient dense food and help other young moms navigate a traditional diet. Thank you for the opportunity!
I would love, love, love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference, not only because I’ve never attended one (yet), but because there are so many speakers and topics of interest to me. (Run on sentence…there’s my 5 already. haha)
Doctors and experts that I’ve followed for years will be presenting. Would be so awesome to attend these talks and see/hear them in person! Sally Fallon, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Zoe Harcombe, Chris Masterjohn, Amy Berger, Laura Shoenfeld, Ben and Jessica Greenfield to name a few…all in one conference!!
I’d love to hear the exercise and fitness talks as well. Thank you so much for giving the opportunity to win a Conference Giveaway!
The principles espoused by the Weston A Price have absolutely changed my life and my children’s lives for the better. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s when I was 21. I have been a faithful Weston a Price member since my second child was born. I owe my health, and the health of my children, to this great foundation. By incorporating everything I have learned from “Nourishing Traditions” and “Wise Traditions,” I have not only recovered my health, but I have produced four healthy, happy children. I’m so grateful for all I have learned about bone broth, traditional fats, lacto-fermented vegetables, and the dangers of vaccines. I use every opportunity I have to lovingly teach others about the great benefits bestowed by traditional diets. Because my family and I have been so blessed by following the Weston A Price principles, I feel it’s my obligation and pleasure to help others learn how they can reach their genetic potential through diet and a healthy lifestyle. I actually went back to school and received my Master’s in nutrition so I could dedicate my life helping others through sound nutrition- especially parents-to-be. I feel so many of the world’s problems could be avoided, or at least minimized, if everyone could just get proper nutrition! I was raised in southwest Minnesota, amongst the monocrop corn and soy fields. I don’t take my children back home very often. I recently read a study that not one lake in southwest Minnesota is safe for swimming, because of the chemical runoff from farms! My parents and many family and friends still live there. I would be absolutely thrilled to attend the Minneapolis conference! Thank you for the work you do spreading the good word!
Super exciting! I have been a member of the WAPF since about 2009. I feel so fortunate to be a recipient of this life-saving, captivating, and empowering information as I know most of your members do too. Attending one of the Wise Traditions conferences is something I have seriously really wanted to do ever since I discovered you. Whoever wins this stellar opportunity will be very lucky indeed.
I have not yet been able to attend a Weston A. Price wise traditions conference. I’ve read about them and wished to go for several years now, but due to financial hardship (26 year old full-time college student) have not been able to. I was introduced to the WAPF seven years ago through my mom, who recommended Dr. Natasha Campbell-Mcbride’s book after I had some digestion issues. Since then I have just been absolutely FASCINATED with the way diet impacts every facet of our lives! I think it is the coolest thing that we can heal our bodies and enrich our families by changing what we eat. I have become the biggest advocate in my family for making healthier choices because I’ve seen the change in myself and my husband since doing GAPS and introducing raw liver, drinking raw milk, etc. My husband and I plan to start our family after our college graduation next year, so this brings me to the main reason I want to go to the conference so badly this year. The topics have never been as relevant to me as they are right now. I would LOVE the opportunity to go and learn as much as I can about improving my own health and the health of my (Lord willing) soon to be children. I want to be as prepared as possible to raise a healthy family that can adopt and teach the wise traditions I’ve learned!
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference. I have never been to one of the conferences. Since our move last November many things have changed– some good and some not so good. The conference would give me a recharge–in thinking and feeding and training family and friends well!. Our move took us from like minded friends- food wise. To an area where I’m constantly teaching at the basis levels on food and the importance of quality foods. It is an up his battle, constantly. The Wise Traditions conference would be a reprieve,a small spot of paradise to this wearry soul. Thank you for considering me.
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference as I’m still in the early stages of learning better food choices. I grew up eating the SAD diet and know I can do better for my 2 kids. My daughter is starting Kindergarten this year and I’d love to include the best possible lunch choices for her, as well as boost her immunity. I’m hoping as I learn more I can also help my parents, who have suffered from their bad diet. Overall I’m looking to keep learning! Thanks!
It’s been a few years since I’ve been able to attend Wise Traditions, and I miss it! Funds and schedules have made it impossible for me to attend recent years, but I know it is a wonderful experience. The food and great company make it well worth the cost and travel, so if you can – GO! I always learn something new and am inspired to do better/more with what I do know. I would love to win a conference admission of course :)
Thank you for your positive testimonial!
Winning an entry to the Wise Traditions conference would be such a blessing!! We live within a few hours of Minneapolis and know it may be the only opportunity to attend (at least in the near future!!) As it stands now, we do not have the money for me to be able to attend. I am a stay at home mom to 5 young children and we have sacrificed everything to feed our family nourishing food. We moved our family to a farm so we can raise as much of our food as we can-grass fed beef, pastured pork, chicken & turkey and have huge gardens so we can feed our growing brood. I would love to be able to attend this conference to gain as much knowledge as I possibly can from the presenters and attenders. We consider a Weston A. Price lifestyle to be a very important investment to our growing children’s future and would love to be surrounded by so many like-minded people. It would be such a blessing & a dream come true to be able to attend the Wise Traditions Conference this year! Thank you! :)
I have been slowly learning about Wise Traditions and the Weston A. Price philosophy of health and nutrition over the past few years. Attending this conference would be a wonderful opportunity for in-depth learning. It would also be a big motivation boost to put knowledge into action. As a mom of 3 children, I am very interested in the portions of this conference pertaining to children/families. This would be my first time having the opportunity to attend a conference of this kind, which would be wonderful because it is relatively near my home. Thank you!
I’d love to attend the Wise Traditions Conference. I’ve never been able to and this year it’s right in my backyard, but it’s beyond what we can afford. I know lots of the wonderful people going this year year from the local Weston Price scene. I began following WAPF about 10 years ago when my mother shared a all she was learning from the foundation. That info. began my journey on sourdough bread, which lead to me starting my own ancient grain, sourdough bread, cottage business in the Twin Cities. It also directed me to meeting some truly fantastic farmers to purchase amazing food from and encouraged us to begin our own homestead and grow as much of our own food to nourish our growing children. The community of real, whole, foodies we’ve met through Weston A. Price foundation has been a true blessing and it would be wonderful to see what the speakers will have to share at the conference.
I would LOVE to attend the Wise Traditions conference. I have never been but have been a member and chapter leader for a couple of years now. This is the first year in the last few I am not pregnant or nursing and this makes it MUCH easier for me to attend. The speakers all seem so wonderful and I cannot imagine traveling and going to a conference and being able to eat EVERYTHING that is served. Thank you so much for offering this giveaway!
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions, Weston A. Price founation confrence for many reasons. I am dedicated to providing nutritionally dense foods to my family as well as the children I care for in my liceased in home daycare. I take every opportunity to teach the children the importance of eating whole foods and how to prepare them. We often cook together to make “treats” out of whole foods to show them how they are made in a healthy way to teach them that whole foods are “treats.” I would love the opportunity to learn more to share with my young students to plant the seeds of health in their lives as they come from homes where it is not taught. Plus, I hear there is going to be some amazing bakery items available as well.
I just made 10 pounds of kraut and I have a pizza made from sourdough ready to eat so I’ll try to make this quick. I’m 27, my wife is 24, and my daughter is six weeks today. I truly believe more and more millennials like us are ready for a change in lifestyle. Wise traditions just makes sense. We love to learn practical knowledge and share our ideas with others. I can’t think of a better way than to learn from and meet the best minds at the conference.
It really warms my heart to read your entry! How did you hear about this giveaway?!
Thank you Wise Traditions for offering this opportunity! I am a Doula, mother, and a nursing student. I would love to be able to take this opportunity to learn and expand on all my practices. What a great networking opportunity and experience! I am excited to potentially expand my knowledge and meet some amazing peers and mentors!
It never ceases to amaze me all the Wise Traditions that our ancestors knew! As I have continued to learn and study through the years, I am more in awe than ever before at the richness of their knowledge. Attending the conference would be an amazing opportunity to connect with others. Hearing the excellent speakers, a chance to soak up the knowledge and wisdom of our ancestors and also the new research that we are discovering, can be a life-changing event. As a chapter leader and birth doula, I love to be able to pass on and teach all that I learn from such experiences. It never ceases to amaze me how a path crosses at just the right moment, sometimes in a random “hello” to a stranger in a grocery isle, that leads to a deeper conversation about healing foods and restoring the body. Such a beautiful way to “love our neighbor”! I’ve been trying to pull the funds together to go this year as I am struggling with thyroid health and would love to hear the information. Attending the Wise Traditions Conference would be a wonderful opportunity!
It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Wise Traditons conference and I miss attending them so much! I attended the one in Schaumburg in 2009 I think or was it 2010? Then Valley Forge PA and Dallas TX. Love all the great sessions, people and the food! I got married and moved to Arizona in Nov 2013. We have a small farm with chickens and goats. I need a get-away after tending the farm all by myself since March when my husband started up driving our bellydump in the Phoenix area (3 1/2 hours away) for 2 weeks at a time, then home on the weekend. He takes off Nov-Feb as it’s winter here in the mountains and doesn’t want me to have to do it all myself and break ice on the animals water tubs. I am planning a trip back to Chicago NW suburbs to visit my mom and family. I know a friend who will be driving up there for it.
I forgot to add that I retired from my 33 year corporate job in Chicago and got married and moved to Arizona in Nov 2013! Funds and time have been tight!
Thank you, Sandrine, for this opportunity! So many families work to integrate the healthiest choices into our daily lives. As a family who is barely maintaining with two income earners, we tend to spend all of our disposable income on good quality food; this is great for our health, but leaves nothing in the budget line item for vacations/conferences. We are recovering our eldest from severe Autism, thanks to good quality diet, intensive therapy, and specific supplementation. Traditional and whole foods have been my mantra for the last 15 years.I live in a community where there are many people struggling with chronic health conditions and have spent the last decade-plus sharing the wisdom I glean from the Weston A. Price organization – everyone who listens is so much healthier. I have a lending library of the quarterly journals, and they are dog-eared from so many people’s interest! I will share what I learn with my community, if I am lucky enough to win admission to the event. Thanks for reading!
I want to attend the Wise Traditions conference because I am a huge fan of the Weston A. Price Foundation (WAPF). As a nutritionist, I appreciate the perspective of the WAPF and its nutritional recommendations. I want to expand my knowledge base by attending as many sessions as possible. I’m sure this conference will make me a better practitioner. My favorite types of presentations are always the science-based ones, so I’ll definitely be checking those out!
I would love to win a ticket to the Wise Traditions conference this year! It is exciting to hear the speakers, eat the delicious food and have the fellowship. It’s great that you can enjoy the conference and not have to worry about what to eat. I have gone twice before and the food is amazing and healthy, including the cooking oils! I would be very grateful to win a ticket this year as it would be financially difficult to afford to go otherwise.
I would like to attend because it is a “wise tradition” in the sense that what you learn has been passed down through the generations of people, but is not readily known except through organizations such as the Weston A Price Foundation. Having attended previously, this conference can easily be an annual event; a reunion of sorts of like-minded people. The health information is beneficial and the meals are delicious! New research which supports these wise traditions is always interesting and encouraging in contrast to the standard American diet. Though Minneapolis will likely be cooler weather than other venues, I anticipate a warm, joyful event.
I have been a WAP follower for many years and am amazed at how much I continue to learn, especially now that I have children. My three year old would absolutely love the children’s program. I am very intrigued by the hormonal seminars. This would be my first Wise Traditions conference. I would love to meet more people in the community face-to-face. Bonus that it’s fairly close to where I grew up! :)
I would love to have the conference experience! We have followed a WAPF diet for many years and we’re always learning more. I would appreciate hearing more of the Wise Traditions writers in person and perhaps being able to ask questions. I’d also like to connect with others who share this journey, including other chapter leaders. What a great opportunity!.
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference because of the healing journey we are on for my six year old son with autism. Whatever the medical industry may say, we have seen huge strides in symptom resolution with just this diet. My three other kids have also been doing wonderfully. However, I feel isolated and that I’m lacking resources, information, and motivation. While I work harder in the kitchen than anyone I know, I need a push. I feel this conference would give me the inspiration to continue and build a base for helping other parents who have kids with special needs.
I would like to attend the Wise Traditions Conference to be immersed in a community dedicated to sound nutrition. I have wanted to attend for several years. The conference has been too far away to get away. This location allows me to take in the entire conference and learn from the speakers, vendors and attendees. I’d like to bring all my daughters for at least a day so they can learn and apply the Wise Traditions principles with their families.
I would love to attend the Wise Traditions conference because I am a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and want to learn more about REAL food. I’m always reading articles by the Wise Traditions, and all of it is so intriguing. Nutrition has always been my passion and being able to attend this conference, would be an organic cherry on top! Minneapolis is only 3 1/2 hours away, so it’d be like nothing to go, but that’s all the more reson to go for me. Money is tight, so to win this prize would make my day. Good luck to all who have entered!!
I have attended the Wise Traditions conference once before. It changed my life! The information presented was so incredibly eye opening for me. Now I have a baby who will start eating food soon. I would love the opportunity to refresh my knowledge of WAPF ways and to build a strong foundation to start my little girl’s relationship with nutrition through food.
Hi! I would love to able to attend the Wise Traditions Conference! Since discovering Nourishing Traditions and Wise Traditions my life has changed dramatically. I have seven children and love sharing what I am learning about real food with them. If i get to go to the conference I will learn even more to share with them. I eat a lot more butter, meat and eggs than I used to, so do they, and we are all happier for it.
I am fairly new to WAPF and my, how’s it’s changed our world! To attend the wise traditions conference has been my personal goal since the last confernce. I am currently a stay at home mom, and getting the finances in order to attend has been the drawl back. I plan on going back to school to further my education in nutrition, and I can’t think of anything better than to be present at the Wise Traditions conference to further my knowledge of healthy eating and nurturing. I have several friends who are members and who are attending. To be a part of this conference, would mean the world to myself and my family, and would also make headway to a fresh new beginning of learning and understanding of how to keep our bodies nourished and functioning properly!
I won’t be going, but would love to go. First conference like this I have ever looked into attending. We reversed my school aged child’s ulcerative colitis, (after we had exhausted and tortured our child with conventional treatments,) with SCD diet in conjunction with low FODMAPs. Soon after I learned about GAPS diet. Mom was primary researcher and Dad was/is our primary cook.
Hi there, Sandrine! I am a young, self-proclaimed “apartment homesteader” who would be so blessed by being able to attend the conference. Over the last year & a half, my entire lifestyle paradigm has shifted by being enlightened by the information provided through the Wise Traditions Podcast & the Weston A Price Foundation. I did a complete overhaul of my diet, started making my own sourdough bread, my own fermented foods, removed all the harsh chemicals in my house—I even QUIT MY JOB to work on an organic urban farm in Columbus, OH to learn how to grow my own, real, nutrient dense foods! Now as a newly wed (as of April 2017), I am more passionate than ever about learning everything I can about these wise traditions, how I can bring these principles into the core of my family’s (& future family’s) nutritional health, & how I can spread this life-changing information with those around me. As I live all the way in Ohio, it is doubtful I will be able to afford to travel to the conference & also pay for a day or two of the conference. It would be a dream to attend the conference for the full about of time & meet so many of the people who have played a vital role in changing the way I live the entire rest of my life.
As a long-time chapter leader I’d love to go. Every tidbit I can pick up helps me to help answer people’s questions. As a nana to five little ones now, I’m always looking to add more Wise Traditions to my life. Having the chance to focus on this information every year is a huge blessing. Our young people need help!
From the moment I stumbled onto a YouTube video “The Oiling of America” I knew I had found what I’d been looking for in the Weston A. Price Foundation. Listening to Sally Fallon during that presentation was like guzzling electricity — it turned all the lights on for me. I pretty much dropped everything I was doing for the next couple of days and read everything available online from the Wise Traditions journals and videos. Four years and so many dietary adaptations later, our family has never been healthier or happier. Finally being able to attend a Wise Traditions conference and being among my fellows-in-spirit would be the thick slab of raw butter on my whole grain sourdough bread!
Wise Traditions has blessed my family with the wealth of free information they offer for years now. I have listened to different speakers online, and there are several health educators that are big Weston A Price advocates that are my go to sources with questions regarding my families health or how and what to cook for us. I think that attending this conference would be so exciting, rejuvenating, educational and fun. To get to sit and learn from amazing teachers and be surrounded by like minded thinkers would really help re-fan the flame that burns in my heart to be proactive in my families health but sometimes loses momentum due to the busy and tiresome battle in going against the flow. I am a stay at home homeschooling mom of 4 ages 9 and under. Not only would my immediate family benefit from this, but the community of young mom’s I get to do life with on a daily basis. Thank you for this opportunity!
Wise Traditions has been a huge blessing to me and my family. I have not yet attended a conference but hope to someday. There is always such a wealth of information presented. I appreciate all the work of the WAPF team as well as all the conference leaders around the world. They are doing a wonderful job of helping to educate people on good nutrition.
I would like to attend the Wise Traditions conference for many many reasons. However, #1 on my list is for the fertility track. My husband and I just got married and are hoping to have kids in a couple years. With that said, I know I need to start implementing dietary changes now and learning more about the fertility diet to ensure the best heath for our future blessings. To mention a few other reasons I’ll just say I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis at age 15 and now at 23 I’m working with Dr. Cowan to be prescription free with his help and God’s lead. I have already seen leaps and bounds by going grain-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and refined sugar-free to name a few ;). Thank-you for taking the time to read a bit about me and I hope to see you this November! I’ve attended a couple conferences in the past and they are way up there with my top highlights throughout the entire year!
Thank you for sharing. I was a chapter leader in Spokane, WA. I am passionate about food access, nutrition education, and healthy cooking based on all the principles I have learned from the Wise Traditions Diet. I am forever grateful and indebted to this ‘priceless’ information. Last week, I started school to obtain a Master’s Degree in Occupational Therapy, which most people don’t exactly know how to define. That might be because it is an ever-evolving, open minded profession in the conventional medical model. Due to the broad scope of Occupational Therapy, I plan to integrate the WAPF principles into my practice of working with the mentally ill. I have seen the diet in rehabilitation, and there is great room for improvement. Starting school and moving across the country to Maine have made funds tight. I would love the chance to be considered for this giveway. Thank you for all that you do.
So looking forward to the annual Wise Traditions conference!!! And looking forward to seeing you again! This will be my 13th conference as well and I can’t imagine not going. There has not been a year that I didn’t leave the conference without feeling that it was totally worth my time and I learned a ton of new information. The first couple of years it felt rather overwhelming…. there are so many workshops and lectures happening at the same time and how do you pick just one track? :) However, I have found the first couple of years of attending the Wise Traditions conference provided a fabulous foundation for understanding health issues and concerns that are relevant for me and my family. Now it feels like each time I attend the Wise Traditions I leave with new pieces to the puzzle, thereby gaining a much better understanding of the bigger picture and greater depth of understanding of health issues and concerns and how they are interconnected. This information has greatly helped me minister to my health as well as that of my family and friends. See you soon! :)
Attending the Wise Traditions conference would be amazing! I started on a “health” journey 4 years ago when I stumbled into a friend’a husband’s chiropractic office. Our minds were blown and lives were changed forever. We immediately researched true health options and it drastically changed our lives. Within weeks my husbands enrolled in school to become a chiropractor as well! In our journey to better health, a new friend introduced me to the Weston A Price foundation and traditional eating. I’ve hungered for this information and can’t get enough knowledge, and I’m always learning more! To attend a conference would be such a boost in our journey, as life gets busy and we sometimes backslide. But I always strive to give my family the best, the traditional way!!
Wow! This is so wonderful that someone special gets to go to the conference through this giveaway! I first learned about Nourishing Traditions, and all the wisdom of Dr. Weston Price a couple of years before I got pregnant with my first baby. It was such good timing, because I got to heal my body BEFORE growing another human being! God’s timing is pretty spectacular! Throughout the years, I have continued to add in more and more traditional foods into not only my diet, but my children’s diets! I learned the best first baby foods, and what to feed my growing toddler. Hint: Egg yolks, liver, butter, and salt have been a quick staple in our house for the kiddos. ;-) Now we enjoy chicken livers, make our own homemade nourishing broth for soups, and get only the highest quality meat, eggs, and raw milk that we can find. My heart is so happy to see that North Star Bison from Wisconsin is making their way to speak on the Friday schedule at the Wise Traditions conference! They have the BEST and most consistent quality meat that I have ever tasted! (We surely miss their beef and bison meat since we have just moved from their area into a new state and new adventure!) It is truly so cool to meet others who are like-minded in this way, and it just puts a smile on my face! You can never stop learning about good food!
Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway. I have desperately wanted to go to a Wise Traditions conference since I heard about Dr. Weston A. Price years ago. I have been struggling with unexplained infertility for four years and I am about to jump into the GAPS diet to see if it makes a difference in my health. I’m sure a lot of people would be happy to win the registration, but for me it would be life-changing. We already spend so much on fertility treatments, even without doing ART/IVF, because conceiving naturally is important to us and we do not have the extra funds to put towards this conference. Winning this would help me feel sure that I am heading in the right direction. Thank you!!
Attending the Wise Traditions conference would give me information about how to increase energy. I am healing from heavy metal toxicity and need all the help I can to get energy back on track. Also, my husband would love to attend but cannot, so my attendance would bring back information for him to incorporate into his practice as a healer. We plan to try to conceive within the year, so this will also help us achieve that aim as we are both older parents. Finally, I can share this information with others in my network so we can get healthy!
As a Naturopathic Doctor I am very excited to be attending my first Wise Traditions Conference. Much of what I practice today in terms of nutrition is based on the work of Weston A. Price. I am so happy to be surrounded by others who have taken the time to research this way or eating, and the tremendous efforts it takes to put it into practice. More importantly I am so thrilled to go to a conference where I can actually eat the food which is served! I am grateful for the opportunity to network and learn at this years conference. I look forward to meeting you all soon!
At exactly this time last year, I was in Australia studying for my permaculture design certificate. Now, I’m in Hawaii wwoofing with an amazing host who happens to be a chapter leader of The Weston A. Price Foundation. I became a member and really enjoy the Wise Traditions journals. I’ve learned so much this year! My life will never be the same! The topics being covered at the conference are in my field of interest. I would love to attend for the first time and continue my learning experience!
Wise Traditions, Pick Me! Pick Me! Pick me! Please. Puhhhhh lease. I so know I need some nutritional help.
To qualify, please follow the directions listed above under the Giveaway header.
Attending this years Wise Traditions conference in MN, would be such a wonderful learning experience! I first learned of Wise Traditions and the WAP diet when I was trying to conceive our first baby! Now, almost 2 years later, our family is still following this highly nutritious diet. I would love to have the opportunity to learn how I could further improve the health of my family!
Hello! I would absolutely love the conference tickets. I have been wanting to sign up since I learned of it being in Minneapolis last spring. The cost is a bit prohibiting but I keep thinking that I’ll figure it out somehow. I have two young kids that I am trying to raise in a Wise Traditions way but I need more inspiration and examples to do a better job. We certainly have a good start at the life style but I’d love to attend to learn more! Thanks for offering this!
I would love to attend the Wise Tradations conference in Mpls this year. I grew up on a mid west farm and we drank milk right from the cow unpasteurized and when we ran short the whole milk from the store tasted watery. My Dad and sister live in MN so this would also be a way to slip in a visit with them. I believe the path to health is found by eating the Weston A Price method by most.
I first heard of the Wise Traditions conference through my wife who is a Weston Priceholic! I want to attend this year to see what all the hype is about and join in her excitement. This would give me the opportunity to accompany her and learn from the experts. Together we are excited to create a healthy lifestyle to raise a family in. Thank-you for this chance to attend!
I would love to have the opportunity to attend the Wise Traditions conference because I am chapter leader in Mexico City a city of more than 20 million people where many of traditions that are in line with Dr. Price’s recommendations are now being lost, and unfortunately not many people have ever heard about WAPF principles.
I have been wanting to attend for the past three years but being a mother of three, the cost of the plane tickets and the value of the peso against dollar have made it economically impossible.
If I go to the conference this year I will be able to come back wiser and pass along what I learn
I only dream of going to the Wise Traditions conference. Although my journey began many years ago, it really started about 4 years ago when I found out I was pregnant with our first child. I decided at that point I could no longer procrastinate or make excuses for my health choices as I was responsible for another life. Our whole life started a 180 degree process at that point. We are live a much different life now, taking baby steps to greater responsibility and greater health, but there are three major things I’ve really learned from my journey 1) you are responsible for you and there are many choices you can make to better your health, but that takes dedication, research, and good choices. 2) you never stop learning / there is always something knew or something you don’t yet know. 3) the word needs to be spread; many people have no idea what the standard lifestyle is capable of. I would love the opportunity to learn from the best in the industry and thank you for the chance.
I would like to attend the Wise Traditions Conference in Minnesota because it is close to home, and I don’t have opportunities to travel due to work. I appreciate the knowledge of this organization, and would like to learn from what they have to offer. I’m sure that the wealth of information presented will be great. It is important to learn how to heal the body through food and other practices.
I would like to attend the Wise Traditions conference in Minneapolis because I can drive there this year. I will be able to load my car up with all the great vendors’ products. I also love going to the conferences because of the great food they have. Because they offer child care I can bring my seven year old. I love learning how to take care of myself and my family. The speakers have a wealth of knowledge. I have been to the last two conferences and I’m looking forward to attending my third conference.
I had my heart set on attending this conference being that it is so close to me, but financial circumstances will not allow me to go. I had planned on applying for the financial aid but I am in the middle of separating from my husband and in all thr chaos did not get my application in on time. I so desire to go simply for the fact that I really want the community aspect of it; I want to meet others that share the same ideals as I do. I have no one in my life that believes or cares in nourishing their bodies and when trying to avoid living on the standard American diet it is very difficult to be around others, you feel very alone. I have a two-year old son and the main reason I have never reached out to mom groups or found other mom friends is bc the diet aspect would be difficult- when I have to say no to the snacks they feed their children, or my son would want to eat what the other kids are eating. So to be around like-minds would just be the most amazing thing in the world right now, especially at this time in my life. I discovered WAPF 2 years ago, after having my baby. I had a low milk supply and was desperate to find something to help nourish my son. The wise traditions nourising cookbook has been my bible. I am so thankful for the work of Weston Price and all of those who follow his teachings and teach others. It has changed my life, saved me from health problems, and it is now my life goal to follow and teach others (my son) how to live a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle. There’s so much more to say but I would really be so grateful if I could attend the conference. I don’t have many friends or family so leaving my husband is very isolating and this would be such a great experience! Thank you.
I was introduced to Nourishing Traditions almost ten years ago. Since then, our family has made slow, gradual changes toward a nourishing, healing diet. Having children (number 5 on the way!) has made my body more sensitive to different foods; I suspect it is because I have become more nutrient-deprived after each one. In addition, watching my mom diagnosed with cancer and combating it through diet changes, and watching my sister use GAPS to start to heal her family’s gut imbalances has solidified how powerful nutritious food is for our bodies. I regularly watch nutrition webinars, and I would love the opportunity to learn in person from some of these experts in their fields at the conference in November. The location also appeals to me; Minneapolis is within easy driving distance!
I would love to win registration for the Wise Traditions conference to give as a gift for my mom. She is the one who led our family to follow the principles of the Weston A. Price Foundation over 10 years ago, and I would love to give her the opportunity to go to this conference. This is also a great opportunity because it is being held in Minneapolis, which is very close to where my mom and my family lives. My mom is constantly reading, learning, and adding to her knowledge of health and nutrition for the benefit of herself, her children, her family, and her friends. She has helped many people heal from their ailments as a result of this learning. Many people may not believe it, but she has even reversed cancer in a terminally ill patient that other doctors gave up on. It would be wonderful if I were able to give her the gift of this conference as a small thank you from myself and my siblings for all she has done to increase and ensure the health of our family. She has incorporated so many good things into the health and nutrition of our family – essential oils, superfoods, fermented foods, etc. – and it all began when she learned of the Weston A. Price Foundation. Upon that foundation of WAPF, she then built many more years of learning and knowledge about health and nutrition, and so it would be very fitting for her to return to those roots and enjoy this conference. Thank you for this opportunity.
