The American Solar Energy Society's National Solar Tour, currently in its 19th year, is the largest grassroots solar event in the nation, involving about 150,000 participants and 5,000 solar-energy sites nationwide. This year, the Fitzsimmons family in Warwick will debut their new contemporary hybrid zero energy/Energy Star house as part of the national tour.

  • geothermal HVAC system (with hot-water assist feature) is 3 - 4 times more efficient than conventional heating/cooling systems
  • triple-pane European swivel-tilt windows
  • LED lighting, and much much more

While there is no registration for the tour, the Fitzsimmons request that people arrive promptly for their selected tour time, turn around at the top of the driveway, and park downward for easy exit.

For the Love of Food: How a Holistic Approach to Food Can Lead to a Holistic Approach to Life

Consider your own relationship with food.   Do you love it, savor it, feel good about it, and does it nourish your soul? Or is it perhaps riddled with guilt, confusion, or questions and misgivings about the state of our food?

Susanne Meyer-Fitzsimmons will discuss the creation of a deeper dialogue between us, our bodies and our food, which is too often non-existent or dysfunctional, and how this dialogue can open our awareness to a more holistic way of living on many other levels.  Susanne will share her experiences of growing up in a different food culture from which her passion for food arose, discuss holistic ways to positively engage with it and create a conversation that may enhance your relationship with food as a gateway to a more holistic lifestyle.

Health: What it is, How we do it, and Who the Actual Healer is.

Many of us still operate from the Western model of fixing our ailments by going to the doctor for pills and procedures, similar to bringing our car to the mechanic for service.  This model puts healing outside ourselves and into the hands of "experts." 

Explore the energetic and mind-body-spirit models of our body and ourselves with Susanne Meyer-Fitzsimmons as a basis for a holistic health and healing model that is infinitely more fun and exciting and goes much deeper than our current model.

Sustainability: What Is It, Why is it So Urgent, and How Does it Connect with Holistic Living?

Think of how healthy we and our planet would be if we truly embraced sustainability. Sustainable processes are wasteless and circular, meaning they can go on eternally without bringing product in from the outside and creating garbage. Each product in a sustainable cycle creates the base for the next process, and so forth.
In contrast, all of our current industrial processes are linear and create huge amounts of waste. A linear process requires the purchase of product each time anew and creates waste products, which in turn create environmental damage.

What do preeminent thinkers such as former president Bill Clinton, Paul Hawken and Jeremy Rifkin have to say about sustainability? How can we turn from a wasteful society, household, or person to one that embraces sustainable living? This is the topic of conversation we will explore together.
Please join us by registering at Vastu. For more information, contact Susanne at susannemeyerfitzsimmons@gmail.com
