Health, Wellness, Art, Music, Dancing, and most important COMMUNITY My experience at the LEAF festival

Via Rachael Maietta | June 10, 2015

After working at Prama for three years I have noticed something very important, everyone that works here truly loves what they do and the people they are blessed to meet everyday. The last three weekends, Prama have set up booths at festivals and expos. We like to meet people face to face and get to know them. We find it is a great way to explain that we are so much more than a retreat center. We are able to tell people about our individual programs, day spas, health coaching, massage, new projects, our history, and neighborhood. We are able to answer questions about our community and the richness and magic that happens there.
At our most recent festival we attended LEAF (Lake Eden Arts Festival) where we were able to meet many new people and reconnect with old friends. We were situated in between the Earth and Sky tent. We were able to witness the many talents of the local health and wellness field. With the endless amounts of activity at this festival including fire dancers, continuous live music, educational workshops, art, and socializing we were touched at how many people stopped by our booth and attended our workshop.
Ramesh Bjonnes, director of Prama Wellness Center facilitated a class on Jucing and Superfoods for Health and Wellness. We also invited people to our booth for free Ayurvedic health consultations. This work is important to us and we want to share it with others. Besides the desire to spread information, Prama attends expos and festivals with the hopes of attracting people to visit our center, but we always leave with a larger sense of community. We are able to meet other local practitioners, listen to peoples needs, and share our vision. Many people came to our booth and shared their experiences at Prama. We leave feeling more connected those around us and inspired to improve and expand our vision for our service to our community.[/ezcol_2third] [ezcol_1third_end] [/ezcol_1third_end]

You Are Worth It! – 5 min Self-Care Routines To Include In Your Day

You are an amazing human being doing amazing things all day.  If you are like me, you want to keep doing those amazing things.  I know it sounds like a cliche but, to keep moving you have to take care of yourself.  I must admit, self-care did not come easy to me, I can give easier to everyone except myself.  Although, through burnout and stress, I realized just how important self-care is.

Live Longer and Happier by Healing Your Digestive System

The body’s digestive system has two main functions: to bring nutrients in and toxins out. When we digest food and liquids, the nutrients in the food and liquids is absorbed into the blood stream to be utilized by the cells in the body for fuel. What is not used by the blood to keep our cells, muscles, nerves and bones energized and healthy is excreted through the urine, the skin and the stool in the form of toxins.
