Happy New Year!
A new year, a new opportunity. The spinning in your head is directly related to the spinning of the wheels/mental chatter in your mind – that happens without awareness. When you notice you are feeling anxious, welcome the anxiety as your friend and teacher. Close your eyes and breathe in deeply through your nose, breathe out slowly through your mouth, and pause for a second or two. Repeat several times. Notice the stillness that begins to settle in. Want this year to be different and better, more joyful and fulfilling? Everyone experiences anxiety and sadness, just in differing degrees at different times. There are simple skills, seemingly small habits, we can develop and practice to effect profound and positive change in our lives. Make 2017 your year. Your year to create the life you dream of. To write your brilliant story. One page, one day, one skill/habit, at a time. Let me guide you through this process. Together we can be a powerful team. Happy New Year to you! May your life be peaceful, prosperous, safe, and joyful! Call today for a complimentary consultation and special New Year’s intention pricing. I’d love to hear from you!

Cooking for the Soul – beginning October 13th, 17th, 20th & 24th
with Debra Young and Chanchal Khosla
Find joy in the simple art of preparing and sharing a balanced meal. According to Ayurveda, our meals should be prepared simply, taking into account tri-Dosha theory (constitution), how seasons and climate affect us, the importance of food quality and “eating local” when possible, food combinations/six tastes, and the art of eating with family and friends. Ayurveda, “the art and science of life”, is a system that has observed the effect of food and nutrition on the human body for thousands of years. It is steeped in a belief that we should enjoy our food! By observing and participating in this three-week course, you will learn how to create health, well-being and longevity – and eat delicious meals prepared with authentic spices and the freshest ingredients. This is a hands-on experiential cooking class, beginning October 13th, 17th, 20th & 24th. Classes are offered both day and evening times to accommodate all schedules, from either 1 to 2:30p.m., or 6:45 to 8p.m. Cost is $150. In addition to learning important factors in the actual process of cooking and eating, each class includes delicious and healthy meals, handouts and recipes. Register with Debra Young at 704-771-6251. We look forward to gathering together in Elizabeth at 2406 E. 5th St., and sharing the joy of cooking!
