You may know someone or a group of someones interested in an opportunity such as this.

As you know I’ve been working with Dr. Randi Raymond the last 2 years here in peaceful Costa Rica developing Eden Wellness Community; a sustainable green building project based around organic farming, permaculture and Eden Retreat Center, a natural medical facility.  This vision also includes Eden Wellness Institute, the non-profit, spiritual, and educational component to the community.

Why is Eden important?  Eden is located next to Carara, the oldest national park in the world; an uncut, PreColumbian jungle with more diversity than anywhere else.  The Tarcoles river valley divides two distinct climate zones.  To the North is the dry deciduous forest ascending all the way to Seattle.  To the South is the tropical rain forest descending all the way to Argentina.  Carara and Monte Eden include all the species of both climate zones.

Of course they are in danger, due to the proximity of the capital city, San Jose, and proximity to Caldera, an international shipping port. The Costa Rican government cannot expand the areas they protect; it’s up to us. And right now, Randi’s vision of Eden is in serious danger of just not happening.  We have not found the one more million dollar investor that we need to secure the property; and the contract has run out.  We have 2 weeks to secure a $30,000 down payment with a letter of commitment.

I extend this special invitation to you and our global family with love and peace. Your secure investment in this property and business has tremendous potential to bring great benefit to all beings. You would be getting in on the beginning and able to create the kind of community in which you would like to live and future generations can thrive!

Thank You!  Love you!!  Bless you!!!

4 Tips For a Happy & Healthy Holiday

It’s that time of year again!!! Parties, celebrations, get togethers, and plenty of opportunity to over due it. The abundance of sweet treats, drinks, and food make it to easy to over indulge leaving us feeling not so fresh for the new year. Here are some easy tips to keep you feeling healthy throughout the year.

1. Chew your food- One of the main causes of indigestion is swallowing food before it is completely broken down. Chewing your food thoroughly will improve digestion and help you loose weight as you will feel full faster. Every mouth full should be chewed at least 50 times before swallowing.

2.  Stay Hydrated– Be sure to drink plenty of water during this time of year to help flush out all the sugar and toxins.

3. Daily Fasting– In order for your body to detox it needs to take a break from digestion, as those two processes can not happen at the same time. Fasting can happen on a daily basis if you can take a break from eating for 10-12 hours a day, and yes sleeping counts! So have dinner before 6pm and don’t consume anything but water until 6am the next day.

4. Keep Breathing– If you find yourself overwhelmed by the choices and events of this time of year be sure to take a deep breath (in through your nose and out through your mouth) to help calm your mind and make healthy choices.

Keep these tips in mind this holiday season and when you are ready to recuperate from the stress and reset your heath.

Warning: This Blog is Shit

Filed under: Uncategorized

I recently completed a death doula training at which my heart cracked open and I lost my mind. I had hoped I’d learn new exciting ways to include death in the conversation at Eden Retreat Center and Wellness Community. Instead I learned a whole new way to look at Everything including Shit! It’s really All Good! You may know I’ve been talking shit for 40 years; mostly telling people they’re full of it! As a colon hydrotherapist, I’ve seen first hand the relief that letting go of shit can bring. People can be very uncomfortable, anxious, feverish and sick just because they need to take a huge dump!

Imagine my joy to learn that colon hydrotherapy is also a way to assist the dying! Turns out, it’s quite common for a person to die just after letting go enough to take a good shit! So, let that shit go, my friends! Let Love Fly!



I Am Black

From Black Lives Matter to BLACK LIBERATION by Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is agreed to be a must read for we who believe in Freedom! Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor is assistant professor in African American Studies at Princeton University. She’s an activist and scholar; and writes on Black politics, social movements and racial inequality. From Black Lives Matter to BLACK LIBERATION is dedicated “To the parents, brothers, sisters, partners, and friends of those who have been killed by police and other forms of state-sanctioned violence and yet remain committed to the struggle for a just world.”The book is 219 pages. I’ve got half the pages bent down because of an amazing quote or mind blowing idea! Those quoted include: Frederick Douglass, Lyndon Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr., Huey P. Newton, Naomi Murakawa, Jimmy Carter, Lee Atwater, Lee Sustar, Richard Nixon, Christian Parenti, Manning Marable, Amiri Baraja, Bayard Rustin, James Baldwin, Tef Poe, Barack Obama, Vann Newkirk, Darnell Moore, Johnetta Elzie, Donna Murch, Al Sharpton, Ashley Yates, Brittney Ferrell, Charlene Carruthers, Alicia Garza, DeRay McKesson, Asha Rosa, Aldon Morris, Arundhati Roy, Megan Francis, James Forman, Mwenda Katwiwa, Abraham Lincoln, Malcolm X, John Watson, Tim Wise, Claude McKay, Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trotsky, Karl Marx, Edmund Morgan, Antonio Gramsci, and C.L.R. James.

The author does such a good job telling the history and connecting it with what we see today. Because she is so knowledgeable and an activist, every chapter has a mind blowing conclusion; on such topics as: Black Awakening in Obama’s America, A Culture of Racism, From Civil Rights to Colorblind, Black Faces in High Places, The Double Standard of Justice, The End of an Illusion, #BlackLivesMatter, and Black Liberation.

Some examples of the things I didn’t quite get until now? Every time there has been a step forward in Civil Rights Law, back to the Civil War, the white men in power immediately spin it so no progress is possible! Black People continue to be blamed for their poverty; while complete and total, political and economic reform is the only answer! Law, order and modern policing are based on racism and the subjugation of Blacks! President Obama could not be for the Blacks because it was whiteness that had got him elected! It is disingenuous to focus on poor, working class Blacks without addressing the many ways the criminal justice system has taken Black parents from their children! All these police killings of unarmed Black people is nothing new; it’s social media that has made the world aware of how heinous the situation is in the US! White supremacy and capitalism are intimately connected! “The New World we are struggling to create must destroy oppression of any type!”

I am Black. As a white, homeless, senior, woman, I mean no disrespect to People of Color, when I say, I am Black. I had dread locks for 26 years as my plea for the end of racism and beginning of Peace on Earth. Never in those 26 years did I feel as Black as I do now. In the last 5 years, a tyrannical narcissist, card carrying member of the Good Ole Boys, defrauded me of my home, inheritance, business and all my personal possessions. That’s not what made me feel Black either. It’s that I finally see how the whole system is rigged and that nobody has a chance against the man. That terrible discouragement and hopelessness is what makes me feel Black. I realize if I had been Black, when the sheriff came to physically remove me from my home; he would have just killed me instead!
