  • YOUR BODY IS TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING

    Feeling stressed out, sick, or anxious? Not sure what your next move should be-or why your thinking is so cloudy? Time to get out of your head and into your body, that brilliant vehicle that is communicating with you all the time. Your body not only knows what you truly want; it can help you handle any situation you find yourself in. Unfortunately, most of us never learned how to read our body’s clues—and as a result, we go through life disconnected from our true desires, acting instead in accordance with what the world wants from us. This book shows you how to stop overthinking every decision and start living a life in which happiness and fulfillment are the natural byproducts of being true to yourself. This step-by-step guide shows you how to unlock your body’s natural intelligence, free your mind of negative thoughts, and map your path to greater satisfaction. You’ll learn how your body can help you:

    Erase self-doubt
    Expand your awareness
    Make better decisions
    Improve your relationships
    Find your passion and purpose
    Boost your health and well-being

  • For centuries, chia seeds were revered by both the Maya and Aztecs for their amazing energy and natural healing powers. Today, it’s no wonder that chia is one of the hottest superfoods around: Gram for gram, it has 70 percent more protein than soybeans, 25 percent more fiber than flaxseed, 30 percent more antioxidants than blueberries, 600 percent more calcium than milk, and is the richest known source of plant-based Omega-3s. Reaping the nutritional benefits of chia can be as simple as mixing a tablespoon into a smoothie or tossing it on a salad—but that is just the beginning!

  • “Grief is surrounding my Holidays” and I ask, “What do I do now?”
    Sadness feels sadder and loneliness goes deeper. The need for support may be the greatest during the holidays. Pretending you don’t hurt or it is not a harder time of year is just not the truth of you. The truth is, time does heal. Time simply arranges us in the direction of our healing journey. You can and will get through the holidays. Rather than avoiding the feelings of grief, lean into them… It’s not the grief you want to avoid, it’s the pain. Am I right? Grief is the way out of the pain. There are a number of ways to incorporate your loved one and your loss into the holidays. Tune in for ways to cope, and trust what shows up for you and BE with that.

    Spiritual Care Advisor and Grief Support Specialist for Hospice Advantage will be sharing her wisdom on this important subject.
