Evolutionary Healing: Advanced Nutrition for Body, Mind and Spirit
Evolutionary Healing: Advanced Nutrition for Body, Mind and Spirit, is a series of 4 tele-seminars guaranteed to exponentially increase your health, vitality, and internal radiance.
NOTE: Start Date is April 29, 2013. Classes are each Monday evening for 4 weeks (April 29th - May 20th). All classes are recorded and shared with participants. You can participate in this Class from anywhere - simply call in for the Classes live, or listen to the recording on your own time.
What is Evolution?
Evolution is the process of “organizing to an optimal state.” We each have within us the potential to live life in a truly happy, balanced, and healthy way. However, there are a multitude of things that challenge our ability to do so each day.
Why are we offering this class?
After many years of combined experience as healing practitioners, we've found that healthy food alone is not enough to create true vitality. Healing is about more than just eating the right foods, taking the right supplements, and getting out for a little exercise.
We feel there is a real need for programs that teach you how to optimize health - guiding you to heal on all levels (body, mind, spirit) in a concise, practical, guided, fun, and inspirational format. Thus, the birth of this class!
How can this class help you evolve?
In this class we’ll be teaching you our favorite methods for evolving to the next level in all realms of your life. This class is designed to give you practical tips, exercises, techniques and the specific tools you need to create optimal nourishment for the body, the mind, the emotional self, and the spirit/soul.
When we say “Advanced Nutrition,” we mean the nourishment and feeding of the whole self. We’ll introduce you to new experiences and teachings that will uncover the hidden potential you have to provide nourishment for your whole being.
By the end of the Class, you will have learned our top healing protocols, transformative processes, and specific tools for evolving into well-balanced, vibrant, good health. And, once you know how to truly care for yourself in all areas of your life, you will realize a new state of radiant healthy being – one you may not have been able to imagine. Welcome to your new, evolved self!
"I appreciate the passion with which you do your work in the world. It is good work that benefits a lot of people. I enjoyed "evolving" with you."
This Class is offered in a series of 4 weekly 90-minute teleseminars. Each class will be a combination of lectures, guided processes and techniques, and group interaction.
The next Evolutionary Healing Class begins April 29th, 2013

Food as Medicine
Throughout this program we will be focusing on the healing powers of foods. We all know we need to eat more veggies, but this class will go way beyond that. We’ll introduce you to our favorite super-foods and super-herbs (many of which you have probably not heard of but are available in your local health food store), and give you simple and easy recipes to try out during the Program.
We’ll also share the specific healing properties of each herb and food we discuss, so that you know how to best use them for your specific health concern(s) – whether it be a slow metabolism, weight gain, low energy, blood sugar imbalances, cardiovascular concerns, cravings, inflammatory conditions, anxiety and stress-related conditions, or any other health condition that can be helped with sound dietary and nutritional advice. We’ll also be spending time discussing herbs and foods for longevity, enhanced immunity, and vitality.
Supplements: Yes? No?
In addition to recommending top super-foods and super-herbs we’ll debunk some myths around supplements and share what daily food-based supplements we’d recommend taking, while also discussing the health and safety concerns of many supplements currently on the market.
Detox and Recharge
We’ll discuss specific techniques for taking detoxing and cleansing to the next level, as well as taking you through a quick detox process for your pantry, your personal care items, and your cleaning supplies.
After a good detox, you need to recharge. Bringing your body to a state of optimal health involves not only taking the bad stuff out, but also putting the good stuff in! We’ll teach you a couple of our top strategies for recharging to a state of radiant health for the rest of your life!
So, What Do I Eat?
The ultimate goal of healthy eating is to prevent the occurrence of dis-ease, while boosting vitality and allowing for the optimal expression of your health. Our teachings will be geared towards these specific goals.
We will help you to understand the wide variety of different diets out there, and which principles of the various dietary theories we recommend following for long-lasting good health. This doesn’t have to be complicated, folks! We’ll break it down for you so you have a very clear game-plan moving forward that you can use each and every day.
In summation, you will complete this class with a broader and deeper understanding of which foods your body needs to evolve to the next level of health. Because we will be encouraging you to try out what we recommend during the class, the knowledge you gain will not just be “information”, it will be deep body wisdom.
To truly evolve, we must be willing to open up our bandwidth of perception. Another way of saying this is that we need to start learning to think outside of the box that we may have been in for most of our lives. This portion of the class will teach you specific techniques and strategies for expanding your awareness of what’s possible for you. And while our main focus for this class is bringing you to a state of optimal health, the practices we’ll teach you will be effective in all the areas of your life in which you are desiring to evolve into a new way of being.
While we all know it’s important to cleanse the body, sometimes we forget the power of mental cleansing. Think of it like dental floss for the mind. We’ll teach you to clear out the gunk that gets stuck in the “mental body” – i.e., toxic thought patterns, self-limiting beliefs, and negative self-talk.
Once your mind is cleared out of the negative and constrictive thought patterns, we’ll help you to fill up that newly available space with healthy patterns that allow for greater expansion, awareness and healing.
On the practical side, this translates into more happiness, less stress, more freedom to be who your are, and more opportunity to be truly joyful each day.
“Imaginal Cells” and Your Evolution
We each have within us the potential for evolving to a higher state of being. An important aspect of this process is the activation of “imaginal cells” – the seeds of the future that exist within each of us, and represent our potential.
The metaphor here is of the caterpillar and the butterfly. Imaginal cells are what are activated during the chrysalis phase of development, to allow for transformation from the caterpillar to the beautiful and vibrant butterfly.
There are very specific techniques we will teach you to “turn on” these cells, to thus allow for your own transformation.
People that have a connection to “something” outside of themselves, tend to be healthier and live longer. Connection to spirit (whatever that word means to you) brings great benefits, including increasing health and longevity, giving you greater ability to deal with hardships, and allowing for more power of manifestation of abundance in all areas of life. We will help you learn to connect into your own personal/spiritual power, as a way of building your internal strength.
It is important to note that we are not teaching a spiritual dogma or doctrine – just techniques to connect to your own voice within. There is no spiritual practice that is better than or worse than another – but in our experience, some connection to spirit is essential to creating truly vibrant good health.
Moving from Body to Mind to Spirit takes us on a journey through all aspects of the Self – allowing for greater health in each area, and at the same time, greater connection between all areas, which is an essential aspect of healing.
We have the ability to seek knowledge through ourselves, not just outside of ourselves, and be our own doctor/healer. This process will help you to gain personal power for health, wealth, and abundance. Watch synchronicity grow, and experience the benefits of being in “the flow” through the exercises and practices we teach in this portion of the program. We predict that the spirit portion of this Class will be the juiciest!
Awareness is key to growth. Many of us spend much of our time distracting ourselves from what we don’t want to see or feel – and thus walk through life lacking the ability to be aware of what is actually good and right for us. It is within the process of developing greater awareness that we find the true gifts for growth and healing.
We will teach you specific awareness-building practices that will increase your ability to be mindful of what you eat, how you think and act, and what you “ingest” from life. These practices, like the mental cleansing mentioned above, will do wonders for your daily happiness and joy. Awareness practices also allow for you to develop your own intuitive understanding of which foods are your best medicine.
Creating a sacred space in your home, a space that is deeply nourishing and allows for reflection, rest, rejuvenation, inspiration, and deeper connection within, is one of the more healing journeys we’ll take you on during this class. We will share with you our techniques for creating a sacred, nourishing space in your home, and explain how to best use this space for your personal growth and healing.
If you’re on the path of evolution, which we’re guessing you are since you’re reading this page right now, creation of a sacred space within your home (or other spot that is applicable for you) will be a wonderful support for you on your journey. This is just one of the many, many things that helps to bring you to the place of vibrant good health that we’re committed to helping you create for yourself.
Thanks for reading! We’re so excited to be combining our wealth of experience, knowledge, practical skills, and passion for good healthy living to bring to you this brand new one-of-a-kind class.
