The change of season came quickly this year! Its been interesting to get the fall harvest gathered in between the raindrops! Nearly done digging roots for winter wellness and gathering the last bundles of herbs along with the garden annuals. I hope this note finds you feeling well and settling in to the changes with ease.
I attended the Healing Beyond Borders international conference for a week in early September. It was amazing. I completed the first phase of my training for teaching Course two workshops and attended many speaker sessions that expanded my skills and tools to be able to serve my clients more fully. New applications of techniques for assisting with trauma release,integrating past and present,and visioning for the future. I am excited to have these new options and have been using them as part of my own self care routine.
This poem resonated with me and the transitions I am experiencing in my own life right now.
Golden, crisp leaves falling softly from almost bare trees,
Lifting and falling in a hushed gentle breeze.
Slowly dropping to the soft cushioned ground,
Whispering and rustling a soothing sound.
Coppers, golds, and rusted tones,
Mother Nature’s way of letting go.
They fall and gather one by one,
Autumn is here, summer has gone.
Crunching as I walk through their warm, fiery glow,
Nature’s carpet rich and pure that again shall grow.
To protect and shield its majestic tree,
Standing tall and strong for the world to see.
They rise and fall in the cool, crisp air.
It’s a time of change in this world we share,
Nature’s importance reflecting our own lives,
Letting go of our fears and again, too, we shall thrive .

HOLISTIC WELLNESS GETAWAY
For years Joseph and I have talked about how to help people put into practice the information and lifestyle changes that we share with them. We all have tools in our tool boxes that we don’t readily use because its hard to figure out how to shift our habits and make room. As a result of the CUTV interview I finally organized our ideas into a service package. You don’t have to be from out of town to get in on this deal!
