Wild Lotus Living is the "healing" portal I launched last July. What healing really means to me is deeper authentic exploration and embodiment of who you really are. For some people this is a no-brainer, they come fired into the world knowing who they are and how to maneuver to build their vision in awesome ways. But for those of us who are bit more, ummm, complex, this can be a wild journey to parts unknown - I'm here to support those misfits along their funky life paths. 

Part of what this funky life path has been for me is POETRY, so I am excited to be kicking off this campaign to support the publication of a book of poetry that chronicles inspirations for my own personal journey.

And for any extra funds raised, I am sharing with you 3 additional awesome new initiatives I am undertaking as part of my healing path.

So all in all this campaign is more than a book of poetry, it is 4 initiatives...drum roll...

1) The Word Initiative: 

As I said, I am self publishing a book of poetry that is inspired by my own healing journey. These are poems that are woven from the deepest layers of my being and are my gift to whomever supports this campaign. I need approximately $400 to cover printing and design fees. Additional funds raised will go to support the other amazing work I am doing through my "portal".

2) The Growing Initiative: 

I am launching into new studies in herbalism. This spring I have planted a new medicinal herb garden and I have signed up for a 2 year program with the Chestnut School of Herbalism to study more in depth herb growing and herb products production. Supporters will receive some of my initial batches of herbal salts and products! I need $1500 to support my tuition costs , so your support is much appreciated!

3) The Flower Essence Initiative: 

A perk of working at Tree Frog Farm is that I am learning about the energetics of plants as flower essences. I am now creating custom blends for people. While I legally can't say flower essences "heal" anything, I can say that to get a clue about what they do, look at the energetic aspects of your own being...the energy meridians, chakras, and emotional/spiritual aspects of your being and you can get an idea of how these energies might work for you. If you struggle maneuvering in the hustle and bustle of our modern life or are going through a major life transitions, are feeling burned out, healing from trauma, consider yourself a sensitives or are on an evolutionary spiritual path, then you might want to add flower essences to your toolbox. I would love to raise $400 to support my tuition fees for the practitioner course I am taking. 

4) Resonance Initiative: 

I am continuing my certification process with the Resonance Repattering work which has been a cornerstone of my explorations into the world energetics. This year I am taking a class with the founder of this work, Chloe Wordsworth, focusing on working with the Chinese 5 element organ energy meridians. I have some training in this already and find that I work quite well with this aspect of the energetic system and this class will deepen my knowledge and practice. I need $1500 for the final certification and course fee. 

So beyond my poetry, the total I would LOVE to raise is $3800, but, hey, if only the book gets funded, fabulous...anything extra just means that I can focus more on what makes me (and the world around me) zing with enthusiasm for LIFE.

With each of these Wild Lotus Initiatives I am offering some pretty awesome items I am producing or services to you or to be gifted to someone who may appreciate them. 

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

The main challenges I will be facing in my upcoming initiatives are twofold:

1) With all things herbal, you just don't know what will grow and will not. So this year my herbal garden is in a bit of an "experimental phase". We will see what will grow and what I will be able to produce. Worst case scenario, I will be wildcrafting or purchasing herbs for salves!

2) The all consuming black hole of time: as you can see, I am juggling more than a few plates this year. Your financial support in this campaign means that I don't need to take on more bookkeeping clients (my other other job) and means I can focus on what makes me (and the world around me) zing with enthusiasm for LIFE!
