Biodynamics Online Conference 2022

Come join us online for a wonderful weekend exploring the fundamentals of biodynamic preparations here in New Zealand, as we breathe life into the practicality and ease of creating, storing and using preps within the community.

With core values of enhancing life rather than fighting disease, and utilizing the biodynamic preparations in full trust with deep intentions, the time is critical to come together and work in harmony with our universe, to heal ourselves and our communities.

Whether you are new on your journey of biodynamics, or a seasoned practitioner, everyone is welcome to learn, discover, investigate and reinvigorate with us.
