“Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”
For the past 20 years, I've had the privilege of immersing myself in the study of many Nature-based healing traditions that originated thousands of years ago in Greece, India, China, and Egypt. Not only have I just been fascinated by the techniques they developed for healthy body, mind, and spirit, but I also really needed help for symptoms associated with extreme OCD, anxiety, and depression.
After spending 10 years in global high-tech sales and another 10 in national nonprofit fundraising, living and working in New York City, and traveling pretty much nonstop I was totally burnt out. I was struggling emotionally with everything and everyone, and in 2006 I decided to jump ship, leave the corporate world, leave NYC, move to Florida AND start eventually start my own business. No small task, but I just blazed through all of that - this is when it's great to have OCD - just kidding, kind of.
I was really excited about opening Bright Life in 2010, but I had absolutely no idea at the time what I'd taken on or how emotionally, physically, and financially challenging it would be. Running what eventually became an award-winning health and wellness business in my seasonal community of Sarasota, Florida was stressful - to say the least - and one of the things that consistently got me through it all was Nature - my relationship with Nature inside and outside of my home. By regularly surrounding myself with the energy of plants, pets, the beach, every creature big and small - I've witnessed one brilliant Miracle after another. This witnessing, the Miracles - these are what healed my spirit at such a deep level. For the first time ever I feel bright inside and out, and for this, I'll forever be indebted and grateful.
My greatest hope is that if anyone of any age needs some simple and practical tools and techniques to relax and restore yourself that you'll give some of my products and services a try. Nature without a doubt has become my greatest Teacher, Friend, and Guide. I've seen Her miraculously heal people on so many levels. She did this for me, and so I'm very confident She can do this for you too. I hope to meet you in person or online soon and please stay tuned from some really great events to be posted in the near future.
Products & Services:
For the past 10 years I've been a Distributor, Teacher and Consultant for Aura-Soma®. Headquartered in the UK they've have had a strong international presence for over 35 years, and have earned my long term commitment and respect, because of the positive and uplifting results that hundreds of thousands of clients have had all over the world using their color therapy system - which of course includes me. Never in a million years could I have anticipated that my journey of self-discovery would so specifically be guided by the language of color, but it has.
The Aura-Soma Color Care System® is an incredible line of all-natural remedies that are selected based on a person's attraction to color. The ingredients used in these remedies, and the Aura-Soma the process for blending them together are what make these products such a potent and effective tool for creating greater emotional life balance. Building upon healing traditions that originated in ancient Egypt, Greece, China and India their ingredients are harvested with great respect to the Earth, and each remedy contains a unique and powerful combination of healing agents that all come from Mother Nature - light (colors), plants and herbs (seeds, roots, flowers, tree barks). and minerals (crystals and gemstones). When we use Aura-Soma it's like bringing Nature to us and gives us the opportunity to be emotionally soothed and uplifted by Nature without actually having to go outside. I highly encourage you to explore their offering at my online store and if you have any questions about one on one consultation please feel free to reach out to me anytime.
Those of you knew Bright Life when we had a physical location on Siesta Drive in Sarasota may remember that we held many meditations in our education center.
Nature Bathing Experientials are designed to actively engage all of our physical senses - sight, smell, sound, touch and even taste - while performing in an activity that immerses us in the powerful emotional, physical and spiritual healing nature of Nature. When we do this without having to "think" about it, we slow down, breathe more deeply and have an opportunity to take the load off our minds which provided enormous relief from our stressful busy lives.
These experientials are forms of active meditation that enable people who are uncomfortable with more traditional forms of passive, sitting meditations to benefit from quieting the mind and getting relief from stress, anxiety or depression. The experientials are by request only and can be customized for a group of friends, a family, a Board of Directors or business associates.
Butterfly Way Station Experientials include a walking tour of my meditation gardens here in Sarasota, Florida. They're appropriate for anyone of any age, and each guest walks away with their own color butterfly identification chart, special seeds and seedlings from my garden, and memories for a lifetime. It's a great way to spend an hour or so just taking a break from it all - like a spa treatment, but bathing yourself in Nature.
Succulent & Gemstone Mandala Experientials start out with a little education about the amazing Kingdoms of Plant (succulents), Mineral (crystals) and Sacred Shapes (mandalas) after which everyone designs and creates their own unique mandala made of succulents and crystals to take home and adore for years and years to come.
For special occasions and celebrations, I offer the use of my Butterfly Gardens here in Sarasota, Florida - USA. These gardens are a unique and truly magical outdoor space perfect for tea parties, intimate wedding ceremonies, one of a kind marriage proposals, evenings around a campfire toasting marshmallows, and basically whatever your imagination can think up. Not all gatherings, however, are appropriate here so each event is evaluated on a case by case basis as are the rental fees.
