What does it mean to be “in good health”? When we reflect on that question, oftentimes the immediate answer is along the lines of the absence of disease. But being in good health is the complete physical, mental, spiritual and social well-being of an individual. To that end, the Good Work Institute is partnering with the Holistic Health Community to provide a “Health is Wealth” pop-up clinic at the Rooted Resources Festival. There will be a range of different modalities featured, from herbal health consultations to Shamanic Reiki Healing.
Holistic Health Community : Holistic Healthcare to the People!
For the past 10 years, Holistic Health Community (HHC) has offered free Community Holistic Healthcare Days in Stone Ridge, NY, where holistic practitioners and community members volunteer their services. In 2021, HHC launched the "Holistic Health to the People!" initiative, bringing its healthcare sessions, workshops and programming to the City of Kingston and beyond, furthering its mission to make holistic healthcare accessible to all. HHC partners and collaborates with organizations that support the well-being of our local communities.

Ortho-Bionomy Sessions by Samuel Claiborne
Samuel Claiborne has been a medical intuitive and energy healer since he was a child. Since 2009 he has been an associate in Ortho-Bionomy, a fantastic, gentle, incredibly effective healing modality. Ortho-Bionomy is a gentle, non-invasive system of healing that engages in a non-protocol driven conversation between the proprioceptive nervous systems and bio-energetic fields of the practitioner and client. This modality has wide applications from structural issues to physical and emotional trauma resolution, to energetic and distance work on every aspect of the client from their bioenergetic field to their internal organs. An Ortho-Bionomy session is often subtle and nuanced in application, but often results in dramatic relief/resolution of physical and emotional pain and dysfunction. Samuel has also developed two other modalities: the AuraLuminance Technique and Shamanic Psychology. Together, these three modalities have allowed him to co-create healing with client's physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. He brings both sides of the brain, the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine, and empathy and gentleness to all of his work.
