September 27, 2014. 9am-noon.
with Sue Kenney
Watch Rogers Daytime on Wednesday September 24 at 11am, 4pm and 11pm to see Sue talking about the healing benefits of barefooting in the home, the studio and outdoors.
Join this workshop and discover the healing powers of going BAREFOOT. Not only will you improve your posture, balance and flexibility, you can help your body to heal itself. You have 7000 sensory nerve endings on the bottom of each foot and their job is to help your body adapt all the systems to the environment you are in. Through the studies done on Earthing or grounding, we have learned that we connect with negatively charged electrons in the earth. They are the most powerful antioxidants known and neutralize free radicals to contribute to a natural healing process . Wearing shoes with rubber soles has cut us off from this incredible gift the earth has to offer. It involves more than just taking off your shoes. Learn about nature’s healing and how you can integrate this forgotten component of a holistic approach to everyday life.
If you have Rogers cable there’s a fabulous show hosted by Deborah Wagner called Orillia Connection. It will be aired on August 31 at 7:30pm.
In my interview I talkabout my story walking the Camino and writing 2 books about it. We carry on with the ongoing story of Barebottom Shoes and how I got on Dragons’ Den. Deborah is an engaging host and it was a lot of fun.
If you run into Sue Kenney on the street, chances are she won’t be wearing any shoes.
On Friday night, the Juno and Gemini award-winning singer/composer/song writer Sarah Slean stepped out on the main stage in a gorgeous white dress and teal blue Barebottom Shoes. She drew attention to her dress calling it a “Jetson’s Dress” and then I heard the words from the back of the audience. Sarah pointed out her Barebottom Shoes! She said wearing them made her feel like a forest nymph. Then she suggested the audience go to my booth and buy a pair. What an incredible testimonial! Crowds visited us throughout the weekend and lots of people tried on the shoes and bought too.
This year’s artistic line-up is anchored by women of influence both culturally and musically, including Ani DiFranco, Rosanne Cash and Hydra (featuring AroarA, Feist, Snowblink). Come for the weekend or for a day!
In Step One, we covered some reasons people might want to go barefoot and how to overcome the fears and social barriers that might get in the way. In Step Two, we’re going to delve into what it’s really like going barefoot (outside your home!) and what to expect out of it.
We’ll talk about our own definitions of what it means to be “barefooters,” discuss the wide variety of physical and social environments in which barefooting is both possible and practical, and offer strategies for making it work for people who want to do it.
We’ll be discussing our own experiences: Sue Regan Kenney (designer of Barebottom Shoes) will talk about her recent 225km barefoot walk on the Camino, and Stephanie Welch (author of the upcoming Human Body User Manual will share her experiences in both urban and natural environments. We’ll also both share our experiences and perspectives on barefoot running.
Based on feedback and questions from the first webinar we held in May, we have even more facts, tips and ideas to share with you along the way. And we’ll be answering more questions again live at the end. (Be sure to add yours in the Q&A app, either in advance or during the event!) We will announce a special offer on the purchase of Barebottom Shoes on the website www.barebottomshoes.com at the end of the Webinar. Don’t miss it!
