Welcome to the April issue of Conscious Community Magazine! This issue, I am very excited to share some enlightening articles and events that will uplift your spirit, body and mind.
Monday, April 22, is Earth Day 2019. It is a celebration of our Mother Earth and all the gifts that she has provided for us on this planet. It serves as a reminder of how perfect she is and how nature works perfectly when we do not interrupt her.
“In nature, nothing exists alone.” — Rachel Carson
I am very fascinated with trees, and how they communicate and nourish each other through their roots. When I go to the woods, I feel more centered, grounded and balanced. It is the best body-mind detox. For more about trees and their magnificence, you can read The Healing Tree by Matthew Sleeth, MD.
In this issue, you can also read Janae and Spencer’s interview with Bill Douglas, founder of World Tai Chi and Qigong Day which is happening locally at the Theosophical Society in Wheaton, IL and at The Lightheart Center in Winfield, IL, and in over 80 countries around the world. This is the 20th anniversary! For more details about this event, turn to page 12.
After your morning tai chi or walk in the woods, I encourage you to try the latest recipe by Janae Jean, Fitter Flatbreads with Fresh Greens, for a healthful morning. There is nothing better than a nutritional breakfast with some greens on your sandwich or in your smoothie.
