As a child my parents taught me a love for plants, animals, weather, geology, music, markers and paint. When I was teenager I was designing logos for a company I still dream of owning. I went to college for Fine Arts, never realizing my true potential. I was challenged with health problems all through my 20-30's. I have found all of my healing through God the joy of plants and support of my loving husband.
This is Jordan, he's my biggest fan, supporter and love of my life. He will be my partner in this adventure.
I am at the most comfortable place I could be in life, so why now do I want to risk everything and try something that could be a huge risk?
Along my path to find wellness in my life it has naturally been taken over by life coaching in the field of nutrition, health, wellness and aromatherapy.
I don't have any children. Leaving me more time to devote to helping others. My home/studio is bursting at the seems. I have to expand my purpose of healing to my community. In order to expand I need a sustainable platform outside of my home, My community needs this.
There is a corner building down the road very close to my home in the "Neighborhood" that I have been driving past for 14 years that is empty. I would love to see it brought back to life. It would add so much healing value to the area. It's bones look good. And it's a nice area and on a busy intersection.
In my vision I can see the back wall complete from floor to ceiling in herbs, dried and fresh split down the middle with a healing resource community book nook with wifi.
We would offer classes in painting, jewelry making, art therapy, essential oils, gardening, and eating for health and overall wellness all designed to support you in taking care of and evolving your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
This is a vehicle for me to give to a greater number of people, not only by expanding my teachings and bringing them to a wider audience, but also by bringing in other masters to teach. I am privileged to have worked with some of the best healers and teachers across the country, and I am excited to invite them to join me to lecture and lead workshops.
Ideally we would love to put in a drive thru for juice, tea, coffee, fresh fruit and muffins.
I have been making art since I was very young and have most of it that I would love to put up for sale. I also, collect the most "eclectic" and am very connected to the rocks of the earth. I will have organic clothing, local eggs, honey, gemstones and jewelry for sale. I have enough inventory to fill the place wall to wall already, but would love to invite a few select vendors to barter/rent a space. I may be open to co-op some space.
I have more tools than most men. Some of them are for sale and some of them I want to share in classes. Not everyone can afford a press, drill, dehydrator, juicer, flex shaft, torch, etc.
I can already see the building with a fresh coat of paint, a mural, tables chairs, some good old fashioned antiques and some flowers.
Here's a REALLY ROUGH SKETCH OF THE IDEA.
In the back there is a 400 year old oak tree canopying what needs to be a courtyard with with healing medicinal plants and flowers, A sitting areas with wifi for classes, local music, arts and possible community happenings. A place where you can get some herbal tea kick yer feet up and chill or geek out on a painting.
I find myself in this place where all things are converging towards this. I have so many friends and family that want to lend toward this idea. Some are consolidating life times worth of good old junk. Some of them just love to barter and trade healing ideas, foods, tools, rocks, etc. I do have help getting it cleaned up and revamped. And I have people who can and are willing to fill in for me if I need a day off.
I have an action plan. I have a space in mind.
The only thing I don't have is the capital to buy the building, upgrade, market it and get through the 1st year of business. I would have been saving for this years ago if I had known that my whole life would turn into an elcectic wonderland of plants, rocks, essential oils, health and wellness coaching, but who can predict where life will lead us?
It feels so weird to Dream So Big that you have to reach out and ask for help. But what else can you do when your dreams feel bigger than you? It would not only mean the whole world to me but also provide value to a community that is steadily moving this direction, fast!
I am reaching out to see if I can make this dream of a health and wellness studio/ general store into a reality.
It's time to "GET REAL” if you wanna heal! Plant Seeds and Grow Blessings!
What We Need: In truth, we need to raise $130,000 to fully fund phase one. (Buying and rehabbing building). Since this is such a large goal we are working on it in phases.
Phase 2: Raise $10,000.00 General Funds to Obtain unique, functional, well located space. May be used for a deposit or to obtain a business loan.
Phase 3: Rehab & Restoration of Community eyesore.
Phase 4: etc....
We believe in the transformative and healing power of plants. We are deeply grateful to all the Herbal Elders, Wisdom Keepers, and Carriers of Oral Tradition that brought this information to the present moment. WE KNOW IT CAN HEAL THE WORLD, and we will do our best to give it wings..
