SPRING!  It's been springing up all over the place!  Dandelions, clover, plantain and other valuable herbs all over the yard, birds singing, sweet smells in the air, everything turning so green and the blossoms on the trees coming in bloom!

Spring is happening here in our Learning Garden, and we have new beginnings to celebrate at Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center! 

We have moved our home-based church into the newly renovated barn that we all worked together to create this new space. We're building new traditions together and growing into who we're to become as a spiritual group!

We have Rev. Holly Rowley on board now to direct our interfaith worship program.  HOORAY!  Holly is absolutely wonderful in the work that she does! 

My husband, Dean Evans, also a minister, and myself are continuing our education in the natural health field, with Dean recently becoming a Certified Natural Health Professional.  Together we're continuing to learn and just got back from the Herbal Medicine Maker's Bootcamp in Pine Mountain, Georgia!

We also have some new interns in our training program, and we are starting new classes and groups all the time! 

We held our Dedication Celebration & Barn Party weekend a few weeks ago, and we had such a fabulous time!  There is new energy here and new connections are being made!  We prayed, we ate, we learned, we sang, we played music, we did yoga, we created, we meditated, we laughed, we were inspired, we provided pure nourishment to our mind, body and spirit, we made friends, we taught children, children taught us, we had a drum circle, we took part in arts and crafts, we got massages, we gave Reiki, we played the singing bowls, we hugged, we looked inside of ourselves and each other and together we found something GOOD!

You can feel the energy here...God's healing presence.   Where is it coming from?  It's coming from everyone's heart!

God's healing presence is seen throughout all of nature.  It's in every person, every bird, every bit of food that grows from the ground.  God's healing presence is active in us before we are born.  It is implanted in us as a seed.  It is within our makeup to grow strong and to thrive as much as it is in an acorn to become a strong mighty tree.

We go through winters and times of hardship, but new life is born in us as surely as the spring comes around.  It is true on every level.  You can see it here in the new life of a home-church that's been around quite a long time, hidden beneath the "snow."  You can see it outside with the flowers and herbs growing out of the ground where not long ago there actually was snow, with everything frozen below.  You can see it in your life, growth.  If you apply this principle to healing....what do you suppose it could mean?

It could mean that you can get well...even after you've given up, new life is able to come.

It could mean that there is hope for relationships gone dormant or stale.

It could mean that new ideas spring forth from within or that new feelings emerge. 

It could mean feeling young again when you thought you were growing old!

Embrace the meaning of spring in your heart and feel all of these things!  It's natural!  Why hang onto winter when the flowers wish to burst forth?  You have to just about smother them to keep them from blooming, so if they're not blooming, perhaps it's negative thoughts keeping them down, like a layer of straw or newspapers will keep new life from springing forth to be seen.  (But if you lift that layer of straw or newspapers do you know what you'll see?  Life STILL springing forth!  Life doesn't give up!  You'll see sprouts and lots of bugs!)

No, life does not give up easily.  Life will renew itself again and again and again, as long as we make the conditions at all bearable, it will come back to us time and again.  Why not make the conditions favorable and see the True Power of Life coming back into full glory in you?

We know how to heal.  It's part of our make-up.  Rejoice in the glory of LIFE and let every moment you're alive be filled with new energy and LOVE!

New life from old.  New traditions from old!  We are in the study and practice of healing the body, mind and spirit at Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center.  We look to traditions that have been here since the beginning of time and bring them into our modern day life, but still retaining the integrity of Original Intent.  We believe God intended everything granted to us from the beginning be used for the good of all life.

We hope you will join us in bringing these old traditions to new life in your healing journey.  We are learning ways of healing from all over the world, from every culture and tradition we are able to find.  We want to know what has been driving people since the beginning of time to keep going in the face of adversity, and what's been truly working for them.  We wish to share spiritual ideas and to learn all that we can to become whole and well.  Spiritual studies, of course, are a great part of this, but finding ways to apply what we learn is where we really begin to enjoy the new life that comes from what's been here all along. 

We host many groups, classes and workshops to learn how to bring what we're learning into practical use in your every day life.  Come explore what God gave from the very beginning and declared to be good!  All the secrets to living happy lie in the constant renewal of those very first seeds.

NOW...Speaking of seeds...there are several things on my mind.  First and foremost, we need to work together as a people to protect God's seeds!  God gave us FOOD for FREE in the SEEDS!  Become informed about what's happening to our seeds if you don't already know.  They are being patented.  Seeds!  Yes!  Made by God, patented by man, and restrictions being placed on their use.  Plus they are being altered!  Seeds!  Made perfect from God as our FOOD!  This is to my way of thinking one of the absolute most important issue we are facing as a society.  Hunger could be banished with proper use of the seeds that God gave us in the beginning for free.    Yes, I said there were several things on my mind, but I guess that about says it all for right now.  I am asking you to just work on increasing your awareness of this and take action as you feel guided by conscience, spirit, intelligence and inspiration in the best interest of all.  We are a church and it just doesn't seem right to ignore an issue of this magnitude.

"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." (Genesis 1:29)

Blessings of celebrated new life each day!  That's what life springs forth like a seed every day!
