I'm Seeing Red
(This is a poem written by one our beautiful sisters who has attended the retreats. We have watched her bloom during her journey and are so honored that she is willing to share her poetry with us. Check back soon for her others!)
I'm Seeing Red
Hating myself and feeling unloved,
Wanting to have, but receiving none
Mad at the world and wanting to die
Being found by my family is why I didn't try
Crying outloud, while lying in bed
Dear God, I'm ANGRY - I'm seeing red.
Met someone and we started as friends
Will we have a future, how will this end???
Now we are lovers and said our "I do's"
Ups and downs we've had, more many than few
Forever we are, this happily said
Dear God, I'm LOVED - I'm seeing red.
Thought of not going, never doing for me
Told myself to try it, you'll like it you'll see
New faces, new experiences here in this tent
Beautiful sisters and courage, must be heaven sent
Self love found and inhibitions shed,
Dear God, I LOVE ME - I'm seeing red.
Summer HerbalsSome helpful tips for summer herbal detox and allergy relief. I suggest taking these as an infusion or tincture or freshly capsulized as the components are more concentrated through these methods.
Some herbs that are great for flushing the organs are;
Enchinacea which is a lymphatic cleanser
Dandelion cleanses the liver
Milk Thistle is also cleansing and works as a antioxidant for the liver.
Goldenseal is great for flushing the kidneys and bladder.
Cayenne or Turmeric Root (can be taken in capsule form, with food and can mixed with almond or coconut milk and raw honey) are both cleansing for the blood.
Nettle or Stinging Nettle with raw wildflower honey helps to combat allergies.
I suggest using the herbs in there most freshest form to get the most benefit.

Celebrate Another Day of Living
written by life coach Ann Darwicki
A few days ago , I was playing a game on my phone when an add popped up. I have to admit, I was pretty annoyed with the ads now popping up on my phone. As I sat there waiting impatiently for the ad to end, I heard a message that stopped me in my tracks, and struck a cord within me on a very deep level. They were playing a song that I had heard many times before but had never truly heard . This time I did however, and, what a whole new perspective! “ I just want to celebrate another day of living, I just want to celebrate, celebrate, another day of life”. I didn’t just hear the words this time, I felt the power of the message behind them. The messages are all around us, prompting us, reminding us, yet how often do we listen? I was amazed at how simple the words were, yet truly applying them in my life would totally transform me and how I lived day to day. Living life as a celebration, not taking for granted that I would wake up each day and be here to see the day end. While I know this on an intellectual level, we all do, how different would I be if I actually lived it? I saw each day, each experience for what it is, a gift. None of us are promised tomorrow, all we really have is right now, to fully live, in this moment. Living from this new perspective, I feel a sense of gratitude for being alive, I give myself permission not to hold back, wait for a better time to do something. For there is no better time, this is the time. Use the good china, wear our favorite clothes that we are saving for a special occasion, tell the people in our life how much we love them, do the things that make us happy, now, not later. How freeing, how empowering to live from this new perspective. If this stirs something in you also, come join me on August 23 from 11-3 for my workshop to explore- are your beliefs holding you back or propelling you forward, living every day as a celebration? I just want to celebrate another day of living, celebrate another day of Life!!
