Hooray, our new website is finally up!
We are artisans making hand-sewn, hand-carved carpets, original designs inspired by nature and guided the by the spirit, with a special love for Native American designs. We just started making wood furniture, too, more to come once we get a few more tools...

A little something to share...

Message in a bottle
We have seen, as individuals and as a race, enough devastation in our lifetimes. From the razing of the rainforest, toxicity in the food chain, to the ravages of disease and poverty. It's stressful, but what, we ask, can one person do? Where can we find the strength to make a change?

The answer is in each other. And it is in listening and receiving in gratitude.

Each individual prayer for healing, strength, stability and sense weaves with others. So many of us have yearned for healing in body, for peace of mind, for a way to survive without working ourselves to the point of not being able to enjoy living. We crave well-being on all levels. That common yearning has reached critical mass. The answer, for many, is simply a message in a bottle.

Peace begins within
A quiet revolution has begun, and people everywhere are reclaiming their power. It begins with the recognition that within ourselves is the power to heal. The power to create the life we want to enjoy. The power to help others create life-enhancing changes in their lives. And so change the world.

As within, so without. Change your internal environment, and your external environment will follow course. Giving yourself the bounty of life-enhancing nutrients in a bottle of MonaVie will naturally nurture every other aspect of your life. And as you share with others, so the cycle continues.

Changing lives
For many, MonaVie has proven to be the catalyst for change they've been seeking. Many have found themselves facing the breakdown of physical integrity, the medical establishment unable (or unwilling) to provide help or hope. Or they've reached the limit of what they can offer their families, traditional employment unable to offer them the means to a practical road to financial well-being.

They've found, in MonaVie, a way to take control of their health and their livelihoods in ways that continue to delight and astound. They drink MonaVie and feel better. They pour a glass and share it with friends. Their friends feel better. As people share the wealth of vitality, the vitality of wealth pours into their lives.

For wealth encompasses a full spectrum of vitality, abundance, comfort, resources – and the means to enjoy it. It means living in peace of mind and body, having the peace of well-being to go out and create the kind of life you want. Knowing that the source of your peace comes from feeling good, and that the secret to feeling good is in a body in balance.

Protecting the planet, empowering the people
MonaVie has set up a simple industry that serves the Amazon and those who live in and around it. Thousands of acres of pristine rainforest have already been saved from the bulldozer, set aside to encourage the growth of the wild, succulent acai berry. The berries are harvested sustainably and the environment is preserved, whereas the trees used to be cut down for hearts of palm.

Through the M.O.R.E. Project, MonaVie has given these communities pride, power, peace. People are employed without having to leave their homes and families.
Children have a safe place to play and learn. Young men have a place to find their purpose and start a life with hope and empowerment. Women have access to education, to escape a stifling system of poverty. Many prayers have been answered. 

My two cents
Now, I'm not a "juice pusher", but I feel good about the positive impact this has on so many. For myself, I feel balanced, calm, and have energy throughout the day without caffeine (yay!) in the couple of months since I've started drinking it. Besides being part of a two-person home-based business, I'm mommy to an active toddler, and working on a book, to boot. I have definitely felt less stressed, more creative and healthier, as if my body is better handling the load I'm placing on it, and resting better at night.

I know many people who say their lives have been blessed with adding it to their daily routine. I share because, as a healer, I respect this juice and the integrity of the people who make it available. Raw juicing is impractical for me now, and I only had a few things on hand when I could do it. How much fruit does the average person eat a day? I was nowhere near the RDA, I can tell you that! Now I drink a delicious blend of 19 fruits every day in a juice that's balanced synergistically to pack a whalloping dose of antioxidants to my body. I offer the information here, use it as you like. If you have questions, I'll be happy to answer as best I can. Meanwhile, in love, I wish you vibrant good health!
