It's winter here in Vermont and Thanksgiving is tomorrow (can you believe it?). There is snow on the ground and it is coooold! We had a wildly fun and busy Summer and Autumn here in the beautiful Green Mountain State. Now, even though we can't believe the holiday season is already upon us, we are looking forward to inviting introspection and gratitude into our hearts and cozying up by a toasty fire with loved ones.
In this issue of our newsletter you'll find:
- News about our gift certificates and the donation we are making to Standing Rock
- A beautifully written article by Lea about Grounding in Transitional Times
- A recipe for ghee (also known as clarified butter)- a very healthy oil used for cooking
But first, some updates!
Along with enjoying her busy practice with Biofield Tuning, Jillian has been traveling and teaching with Eileen McKusick, the founder of the method. So far, Jillian has been co-teaching in Burlington and San Diego. She will be co-facilitating a research project in San Diego next spring and traveling to the UK in the summer also to teach. She has enjoyed meeting like-minded individuals and working with a diverse group of people. Despite these challenging times, Jillian has been exposed to such beautiful radiance in people through this work.
Lea has had a wonderful first year being a part of Nightingale Apothecary and Healing Arts. She is inspired by her clients and people she has met in the healing community. Along with building a steady practice, Lea has provided her services at Integrative Medicine Day at Johnson State College. She has recently started a Shamanic apprenticeship with Sierra McFeeters to deepen her spiritual practice.
We have been hearing the call to contribute in whatever way we can with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. While we would love to go to North Dakota and offer our services to the Protectors, we are also needed in our community to hold sacred space for those who are struggling with the current state of affairs. So, we are answering the call by donating 20% of gift certificate purchases to the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council. We invite you to participate in the healing of ourselves and our Mother Earth this holiday season.
If you'd like to make a donation to Standing Rock, but don't want to purchase a gift certificate, please Click Here.
Thank you all for your continued support and love. Happy Holidays.
Here's to Health. Cheers!
Jillian Monack & Lea Mahoney
