Reconnecting With Earth...and Ourselves.

“The trees are our lungs, the rivers our circulation, the air our breath, and the earth our body” ~Deepak Chopra

Did you know April 22 is Earth Day? Earth Day began in 1970 with a focus on reminding us that the health of our planet is intimately connected to our own individual and collective public health. This notion that the Earth is an extension of our physical body is foundational in many traditional healing systems, such as Ayurveda.

Be well & breathe,

Liane Benedict & Kate Ginney
