Testimonials - Healing Seekers

Healing Seekers continues to develop its educational materials and increase efforts so children and College students can learn more about the world around them, and the possibilities it possesses.

Below you will find a sample of the comments and responses we receive concerning our work and the tools provided to educating young people about Healing Seekers – a project to explore and document the healing practices of cultures (especially in the third world) that can hold the keys to modern-day treatments and cures.

“As the Director of Research at Bent Creek Institute and as a founding member of Targacept, Inc., I know all too well the medical importance of indigenous knowledge and resources. I am writing to express my enthusiastic support for Amy Greeson and Healing Seekers…The Healing Seekers’ team’s genuine compassion shines through in their filming of these expeditions. This filming allows the team to accomplish one of their most important goals which is to educate the younger generations of the world…

It is not common that a person sacrifices and devotes their life to such a calling. The Healing Seekers’ project asks for reasonable investments (and donations) for such guaranteed rewards and benefits (spanning education to discovering medical cures). It is truly a project most worthy of supporting.”

“Amy Greeson, and other members of the Healing Seekers team, are valued contributors to FieldTripEarth, the North Carolina Zoological Society’s award-winning conservation education website (fieldtripearth.org). Through our relationship with Healing Seekers, our audience of K-12 students—representing all 50 states and 140 countries around the world—has access to information about critical efforts to understand and conserve important natural medicinal resources. The team conveys this information in a variety of ways: through first-person articles “Amy Greeson, and other members of the Healing Seekers team, are valued contributors to FieldTripEarth, the North Carolina Zoological Society’s award-winning conservation education website (fieldtripearth.org).

Through our relationship with Healing Seekers, our audience of K-12 students—representing all 50 states and 140 countries around the world—has access to information about critical efforts to understand and conserve important natural medicinal resources. The team conveys this information in a variety of ways: through first-person articles about their travels in Ecuador, Madagascar and [soon] Papua New Guinea; via photographs of remote landscapes and rare wildlife; and, finally, through high-quality video segments that highlight important aspects of the team’s work. The team’s skill in using video as both an instructional and inspirational tool is impressive, and I look forward to sharing more of their work, both written and visual, with the FieldTripEarth audience.”

“It is rare to encounter a true visionary – one who will change the world through dedication to their mission – one who cannot accept impossible for an answer. Amy Greeson is such a person. There is no more important thing we have done than to support her emergence as an environmental warrior and charismatic leader.

We are profoundly grateful for the efforts and dedication of Amy Greeson and the Healing Seekers as they discover, document and preserve healing plants and practices that are in danger of being lost forever. We cannot overstate our confidence in the importance and quality of their work.”

“The photography and content shared on the video clips was wonderful… Amy worked with our content specialists to develop short video clips that the teachers could use for introductory activities, throughout the class, or for a closing summary. All were rich in content and aligned to our K-12 standard course of study in Life Science, Earth Environmental Science, Marine Science, Biology, and Chemistry. Because of the history of the many regions and the study of the indigenous people shared in the videos, these materials were also valuable in the K-8 social studies curriculum… Amy, along with all the people who work to develop the Healing Seekers videos, have been wonderful partners with Guilford County Schools.”
