Healing Journey to Health- (the short version)
As some of you might know, I’ve been dealing with debilitating health challenges the last few years, and have not been able to work for the last 8 months. Fibromyalgia, Stage 3 Adrenal Fatigue, Chronic Fatigue, Candida, MTHFR polymorphism, and Epstein Barr virus are the diagnoses that have been identified so far. Although that sounds rather dire, I am inspired to turn what could easily become a crisis into an opportunity.
I am moving to Peru for a year to pursue healing modalities offered only there, which have been helpful in the past, This crowdfunding campaign is to support both my treatment and recovery, so that I can return to my previous level of functioning (or better!) Please see updates if you're curious how the above illnesses affect my ability to live and work on a daily basis. Originally I had hoped to volunteer with a Permaculture retreat center, but as my journey begins tomorrow, and I have raised $875 of the $7000 necessary to make that feasible, i am sad to say I won't be able to volunteer there; Program fees, mandatory evacuation insurance and equipment needed to live off the land for a year would have come to $2500, alone. But I am confident I will be able to find a way to Do Good once I am there. There is an orphanage that does wonderful work that is on my radar, and I'm sure other important projects i can be a part of, once i am well enough to contribute.
My Journey is Our Journey
Have you thought being closer to the earth, walking barefoot, eating simple meals, being in community, letting go of so much of the material and commercial focus of our society, and contributing to something bigger, something that really matters? Me, too. The time is ripe for planetary and personal transformation – we’re ready for a major upgrade of health and awareness at every level. Through deep contemplation and a variety of spiritual and energetic practices, I’ve come to understand that the next piece of my healing journey begins with the restoration of my health through connection with the land and natural healing modalities in Peru, and through living a simpler lifestyle, living sustainably, close to the earth, being integrally woven into intentional community and making meaningful contributions that contribute to the restoration of our beautiful Earth.
Healing Journey into the Sacred Valley
In the Andean Cosmovision, the concept of Ayni roughly translates as reciprocity or mutualism. I’ve come to realize that healing myself and healing the Earth are intertwined and synergystic;
Join me in support as I take this time to restore my health and sacred land in Peru. What I learn in Peru, I will share with all of you. Your contribution of any amount is greatly appreciated.
