What’s Happening Now? TOO MUCH!

Im happy to be back in Puerto Rico.  Even though I visited the states this summer, PR is absolutely HOME!  I mean I feel so comfortable here, it is too much.  Anywho, while I get ready for this farm project, I am still working on the Skai Juice projects.  There are a few jumping off right now:

First of all, I have reformulated Paradise Wellness…since I have to juggle the retreat business and the farm business I have decided to still offer amazing retreats…however not necessarily in the same way.  Now I am offering Personal Wellness Retreats.  The difference is this: Now, you can book whenever you want to come.  I offer modest accommodations at the Sunshine Guest House, prepare your vegan and/or raw meals according to your goals, and offer you wellness coaching.  All this for $150 per day. And then on top of that you can let me know what other things you would like to do here, and I will concierge and arrange all your other excursions…that is if you like.  You some people, in fact, just need to un-plug and REST!  So I offer this here.  Can you imagine getting the most amazingly delicious and healthy foods and juices, coconut water…comfortable accommodations…the beach around the corner…literally a one minute walk…and pure WARM sunshiny healing weather!  You cant beat that NOWHERE!!  Contact me ASAP!  I have already put the word out and folks are coming!!  Its getting cold up there in the North.  As soon as I posted this on FB, several people booked immediately!

Also, Im getting ready to record my Soul Vegan Master Information Series.  This is the information folks want! Ill be downloading my brain with all the info that folks ask me about all the time.  I should be releasing this within the next two weeks.  Make sure you are on the list to get this when I release it! SIGN UP TODAY! http://eepurl.com/EvW1r

And Last but not least… The Farm project is moving forward and we are Sooo in need of volunteers. We have various tasks that need tending to.  And we cant do all the work.  We need you to help!  Whether you are here in Puerto Rico or anywhere else in the world…you can help in small and in big ways.  Here are some of the tasks we need help with:

FARM HANDS: Right now we are looking for hands on help here in PR.  We definitely need help working the land.  Come on down or if you live here come on over!  Please message us for more information.

FUNDRAISING EVENTS: We need help with putting together various projects that are going to help fund the farm.  Right now we are working on the Puerto Rico Junior Chef Competition.  Message us for more information.

FARMER’S MARKET: We should be setting this up shortly.  We need help with getting more farmers. Clean up and Set up. Getting the word out. Getting speakers. Message us for more information.

VOLUNTEER LIASION: We need folks in the states to help get the word out about the farm, especially getting groups to come down from schools and other institutions to learn about farming and permaculture.

ADMINISTRATIVE: You know what this means, letter writing, making calls, etc.  Some of this can be done at home, therefore wherever you are…(in the world)…would be helpful.

TRANSLATIONS:  We are a bilingual organization.  We are here in Puerto Rico and all information must be in both English and Spanish.  We need help like this all the time.

Please message us if you would like to participate as a volunteer.  Any amount of time would be greatly appreciated.  At this time we are not hiring staff, however when we do we are pulling folks from our volunteer pool.  These are the people who have shown and proven their dedication to the mission and will be the ones we look to when jobs become available.  In order to create a successful, prosperous venture we need warm bodies full of motivation and energy to help get things done. Let us know what you would like to do for us.  We are here and we need you.  Thanks for EVERYTHING!!  YAY!

Love and Peas!

I want to get away!

Soak up some Caribbean Sea!
Soak up some Caribbean Sea!

Introducing….your very own personal retreat!

Peace and Love Friends!

You ever feel like you need to get away from it all so that you can eat properly and rest?! Yeah, me too! Well, Ive made it a lifestyle! Ive been hosting wellness retreats for about 5 years now and I do love them. I just decided to host them differently for now. I have always been interested in helping people overcome their issues. Its my passion. So now, I have the time and place to do so.

Book a personal retreat with me for $125 per day. You get your own room (shared bathroom) at the Sunshine Guest House in Luquillo, PR. I will provide you 3 meals a day depending on what your goals are. So, for some it may be a vegan retreat, a raw retreat, a juicing retreat, a coconut water retreat, or a water fast. Whatever we decide, I will be there to guide you. And Sunshine is located right up the road from the BEACH! So you are free to walk over there and soak up some good Caribbean Sea!

Let me know what ails you and when you are interested in coming. Some people may need to come for one week…others a month. Whatever you need…Im flexible! Let’s help you heal for real this time!

Sending Love across the miles!

Love and Peace

Beautiful day to you!

Well Im back in Puerto Rico! I had a wonderful summer with my family up there in Philly.  Now, I am ready to get back to business…been chilling a little too much. Big tings ah gwan! Interested in winning a Vitamix…you should be…it is a major investment and one of the best ones I have EVER made for my health, family, and my life in general…for real! Keep reading, Ill give you the scoop on this shortly.

First of all, our fundraiser for the farm project is not exactly hitting huge markers like we would have liked to. Our incentive to win an all expense paid trip to Puerto Rico for two people is still active and we just have about 5 more days…so you know what.  Its still ON!  A friend of mine had an Indiegogo campaign that was pretty low at the beginning.  And then all of a sudden at the end of the campaign…people started funding it all over the place.  Dreams do happen!  So, in case you havent heard about it…we are creating an amazing 80 acre, permaculture, organic, sustainable, children’s educational farm here in Puerto Rico…Luquillo to be exact. Its going to be an amazing opportunity for both local children and well as those from abroad to participate in some hands on earth based eco-education.  Your generous donation (really…as low as $10) would help us get started…this is soo important.  Please check out the proposal and see how much time I have worked (the last 3 years) on getting this together…and we are right at the door!  Thanks! Click here to donate…we LOVE YOU!!  >>>>http://igg.me/at/SUSTAINPR/x/377687

Another thing I want to share with you is a little glimpse into our organization here, Muevete Puerto Rico.  I have been on this mission for years and honestly I dont know the first thing about gardening or farming.  Much less, permaculture and biodynamics…its all new to me.  I mean I can compost and sprout and do very basic things.  I can definitely survive in the jungle if need be.  But creating a project like the one we are creating is going to take a certain skill set that I dont have.

In walks, Elise Jenkins… so one day, Im talking to my friend Brad at the Roots and Fruits Juice Bar, telling him that I need help with my garden. And he tells me about Elise, who is helping him.  She was down in Puerto Rico, working at the rainforest, El Yunque, and wanted to do some part time work helping people with their gardens. So, she came and in about one month…we actually had a whole veggie garden producing: pumpkin, a variety of herbs, some micro greens, eggplant was on its way. It was so awesome!

So we started talking about stuff, and I mentioned to her my vision of this farm.  She immediately got excited about it and came to our meetings that I hosted.  At that point I was already in full swing with applying for the land and getting the organization…organized.  At one meeting she even volunteered to be the farm manager…whew!  I was relieved, because she is ALL IN!  Imagine the warm and fuzzy feeling you would get when people support your project, see the vision and jump right in…completely! Its awesome!

Elise has a huge amount of knowledge about gardening, farming, permaculture, and all the other big words. She loves getting dirty…which is something Im still working at…and will be my reality in a few. Im glad that she is on the team, her spirit is EXACTLY what we need to make this project a success!  YAY!

Im going to tell you about the other folks in the organization too…coming soon!

As for now, you gotta check out this amazing contest being held by another amazing health and wellness guru, Kimberly Snyder.  I woke up this morning with this email in my box and I was like…MY PEEPS need to be on this!  I mean if you win a Vitamix through her portal…IM HAPPY!  Share the love! (Just let me know if you do!)  I have one already…but if I win it…I am most likely going to give it away to some one who really needs it!

Scroll down for your chance to win a Vitamix!  And please support our farm project.  Love you all.  Todo Bien!
