The New Terra Essentials are on the way! The focus for the 2017 edition of Terra Essentials is Building a Healthy Community. What does Building a Healthy Community mean? The word, Healthy means strengthening the bonds between families, friends, neighborhoods and community. Community is the emotional, personal and spiritual ties that connect each of us to the other. The word, Building can also translate to designing and implementing projects and events that draw us together to laugh, to cry, to find a reason to take action. Our Community is truly a biosphere where the actions of one affect us all. Who better to show us than the dragonfly? In lore, the dragonfly represents transformation. The fluttering of her wings is much like that of a gentle breeze. That gentle push carries us. The dragonfly is also a pollinator, one who stimulates new growth. Take her wisdom this year to inspire us to take action. Health & Healing Bodywork Coaching & Counseling Energy Healing Healthcare Women’s Health Health is a state of being.

The old adage, “You are what you eat” explains how you power your body. You eat on the run, your body runs out of fuel quickly. Think slow foods – food you have to chew. Know your farmer and what he puts into the food you buy. The key words in shopping these day are local and biodynamic. Biodynamic ensures that your food has its original essence that your body wants. _______________________________________________________________________________ Community Business Support Creative Arts Events Nonprofits Publishing Retail Community is all the people, animals and the planet necessary to support you on your healing journey.
