I was talking to a friend the other day and she asked me what conscious co-creating meant to me, this is what I replied.
The first thing that came to mind when I heard of conscious co-creators was working together with other people, perhaps as a business, an event, a retreat, which is all fair and well. As my thoughts whirled around they got deeper and even more meaningful to me. I then began to focus on how all of us have co-created...Read Full Post »

Chances are, you’ve been affected by acne at one time or another. Maybe you used to get the occasional pimple, and that was the extent of your experience. Maybe you’re one of the lucky few who has never suffered from acne (you lucky soul).

When I was a young girl, I used to notice how my grandparents would stand up after a prolonged period of sitting. They’d make little groans and slowly stretch and pop their creaking bones and joints.
“Never get old”, they would tell me, “all you get are the aches and pain of arthritis”. Growing up, I believed developing arthritis was a cold hard fact for anyone over the age of 60 or so. It was ingrained into me to enjoy my freedom and mobility...Read Full Post »

When was the last time you thought about whether the food you were putting in your mouth was healthy? Probably not that long ago. But have you ever considered whether the combinations of food you’re eating are healthy? Probably not, but you should be!

The question of whether or not it is important to buy organically grown fruits and vegetables is one that arises often. I often hear people questioning the authenticity of organically grown food and whether it’s really worth the extra money. Maybe you’re reading this asking yourself the same thing?
Let me tell you a little story. I once bought non-organic grapes at the grocery store. I brought them home and washed them like I would any other fruit, but after was...Read Full Post »
