One day workshop with Roger Green

About the instructor

Looking forward to meeting you in Auckland NZ. I am so happy I can teach again in my homeland !

Personal and Planetary Healing

This Food as Medicine workshop is taught by holistic health expert Roger Green. Originally from Wellington, NZ, he has been a worldwide pioneer of the natural healing movement with his Longevity Diet healing curriculum, having taught thousands of students how to live a long and healthy life. He is the Founder of the Academy Healing Nutrition – a global online/live training program in Health Coaching, established for over 35 years.

Integrating various schools of knowledge into a creative, flexible and holistic approach, and with many years of practical involvement with natural healing, Roger has developed a unique ability to communicate the subtleties of Oriental thought in a profound and meaningful way.

"The longevity approach is exactly that - to achieve long-lasting health that takes us beyond the average lifespan we are conditioned to believe to be all we can achieve. Longevity is possible. Firstly, let’s change our mindsets and conversation with ourselves. Let's challenge these concepts we are conditioned to believe from an early age”.
