“Bugs are my Buddies” – Healing Seekers’ Educational Exchange to Highlight the Work of Rick Miller
Expanding on Healing Seekers’ Educational mission to broaden perspectives and invite new world’s of discovery, we are thrilled to be partnering with our friend, Rick Miller. Rick is an English/Humanities instructor with a Master’s Degree in ESL (English as a Second Language). He has traveled the world, having lived in the Philippines, Thailand, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the Republic of Niger. His love of insects has been inspired by a lifelong fascination with little critters, and he enjoys exploring and taking photographs of the smallest insects he can find. We believe that you will find his perspective as fascinating and intriguing as we have!
Healing Seekers to Create 3 Part Documentary Series, Made for Television
Healing Seekers, through its collaboration with McWhorter Concepts, will begin creating a series of 3 one hour long documentaries. The documentaries will follow the team’s explorations and discoveries on expeditions. A blend of science with cultural and spiritual practices will allow others to journey with the team in an immersion of diverse cultures and environments. The films will be geared towards the educational PBS, with the intention of reaching classrooms as well as the general public. Sponsorships, both private and corporate, are available and will be given tremendous exposure.
