Restore Healing Event February 23, 2010

Filed under: Complementary Therapies,Events in Minnesota — aprasek @ 1:35 pm

I’m getting amped for this event:

And I’m not just amped up because I’m one of the directors and a sponsor for the event. I volunteer my time (as does the founder of the event and all of the other directors) because we are so passionate about empowering individuals in their own health. The event is an invitation to explore what true healing can really offer. Check out the Restore website for more info and be sure to purchase your tickets ASAP to save some money.


Million Baby Crawl November 11, 2009

Babies have good reason to be colicky. And so do adults. Products that we use every day in our homes are full of toxic chemicals (learn more by watching the “10 Americans” video in an earlier WG post). The problem is that manufacturers of these products go through little (if any) red tape before they throw out a new “recipe” that includes the latest– and potentially more dangerous– chemicals. In the last 30 years, the EPA has required testing on only 200 of the 80,000+ chemical compounds now in use.

Here’s more info from Dr. Alan Greene about chemicals and how we can take action to clean up these nasty products:

Sincere thanks to Seventh Generation and other companies who actually care enough to create safe and effective products. Here’s how you can get involved:

Free & Clear laundry detergent

Natural Glass Cleaner

Organic Chlorine-free Tampons (also available at Trader Joe’s– they’re in a different package though)

Automatic Dishwasher Gel (in grapefruit)

Natural Dish Liquid (in lemongrass)

The goal is to get one million babies crawling to Washington, so be sure to share this info!

If you live near Minneapolis, here’s an event you don’t want to miss:


September 26, 2009. 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

A day of yoga, food, fashion, and fun to celebrate life and healthy living!  All proceeds go towards education and outreach to cancer patients and survivors.  Be prepared to practice yoga with the Twin Cities finest yoginis. Bring your mat, water, and towel.  Come for all events or just part of the day.  The Twin Cities most unique fundraiser of the year.  Good cause, good fun, good Karma!


Nora Byrne is guiding the morning yoga class for the event; such a treat because she is an¬†absolutely amazing teacher.¬†Also, Joel and¬†Jason Herd¬†will be providing live music during the class.¬†Earlier this year, I¬†had the opportunity to take¬†one of Nora’s classes¬†that Joel and¬†Jason provided¬†live music for. It was hands-down the best yoga class I’ve ever taken- the live music added such a powerful dimension. The event will also highlight one¬†of my favorite yoga designers: Swami Baby.
