LDS Holistic Living Event Schedule

September 11, 2013 3 Comments

I recently came across a website called LDS Holistic Living, run by Amy Jones and Becca Price. It is geared toward an LDS (Mormon) audience and has as its mission statement “to help all people draw closer to Christ by discovering His hidden treasures of knowledge for the health and healing of the mind, body and spirit.”

LDS Holistic Living sponsors annual conferences that feature classes covering subjects “ranging on a variety of gospel, health, parenting, and other pertinent topics.” These gatherings are generally held every June. The next conference will be June 21, 2014 in South Jordan, UT.  They also sponsor other meetings and retreats throughout the year.

The following is their yearly, “perpetual” calendar:

PERPETUAL CALENDAR

November:    Closed Call for Speakers
                            and Class Proposals

Last year’s conference featured Camille Fronk Olson, Chair of Ancient Scripture at Brigham Young University, as the keynote speaker. You can check out past speakers and topics and even download presentations from past conferences at their website, www.ldsholisticliving.com.

    Hi, thanks for the link.
    Too bad previous conferences are only available through paid downloads.

    It’s really sad to see how we monetize everything. How can we build Zion with such a mindset ?

    • Isaiah says “the labourer is worthy of his hire” . . .

    • There is a lot of work that goes into putting on a conference. Venues need to be paid for, materials and handouts need to be printed, Keynote speakers don’t work for free, conference presenters deserve to be paid for the time and effort they put into their education, research, and preparation, and conference organizers deserve compensation for the time they spend putting together a quality conference.

      These conferences are not sponsored by the Church nor paid for by tithing funds or church donations. Even BYU Conferences such as EFY, Women’s Conference, and Education Week have a cost associated with them that’s passed on to the attendee.

      It’s really sad when church members are critical of paying an honest wage for a valuable service.
