THE S E E D APPROACH
I often get asked, “What does SEED stand for?”
The concept behind seed is two fold. Firstly, I believe that each and everyone of us has the innate ability to restore our health and vitality, in order to thrive in this world. In that way, we share the natural perfection that is a seed. Hidden inside this wondrous little package is all the information it needs to develop into a thriving plant. With the right environment, a bit of patience, and gentle pruning—you will experience that same magic!
Secondly, S E E D is an acronym for the way of life that works for me, and what has become the foundation of my coaching practice. From guided seasonal cleanses, to one on one coaching programs, to gatherings around food, health + wellness-- the S E E D approach is present.
The S E E D approach:
Simplify: focusing on what matter most, shedding the rest.
Eat authentically: plant based, nutritious, delicious, and kind.
Elevate: consciousness, self-love, creativity, energy–just get higher!
Delight in what could be: celebrating positive shifts, new ideas, inspiring people, curiosity, and play.
