HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE! I’d like to wish you all a Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy Yule, Happy New Year, Blessed Winter Solstice….did I leave anything out? Whatever you celebrate (or don’t) I hope this coming year will bring you peace, love and prosperity! And we all know that despite the fact that this is supposed to be a joyous time it’s also one filled with stress and sometimes depression and anxiety. So, that’s why I invited my long-time friend Robert (Bob) Volinsky to be a guest blogger about his Reiki/ Holistic Energy Work practice. I feel this will provide you with some helpful insights as to how to take the stress out of this season and heal yourself in a natural way. Bob has been practicing these therapies for many years and is a caring, skilled healer. Now, in his words….
Greetings! Some of you might already be familiar with herbal wise woman and pioneer, Juliette de Bairacli Levy but for those who aren’t, she’s a fascinating woman and Susun Weed & Wise Woman are helping to celebrate and honor her life and achievements!
They’ve asked many of us involved in the holistic & creative worlds to help in this celebration by giving special offers on a wide variety of services…for me, I’m offering discounts on my Children of the Forest Earth-Centered Greeting Cards (printed on recycled parchment stock with 5% going to animal/environmental protection groups!)

Go to: www.grandmotherherbalmedicine.com learn about 70 partners who are celebrating the life and work of the amazing Juliette de Bairacli Levy, the grandmother of herbal medicine.
Join Juliette as she spends an eventful summer swimming in the waters, and the history, of the Sea of Galilee, in the modern state of Israel. Juliette trains her observant eyes, and lovely descriptive prose, on the people, places, plants and animals around her.
You will hold your breath as Juliette dares to traverse the forbidden militarized zone around the Jordan River in pursuit of a personal communion with this holiest of lands.
You’ll thrill as she and her children discover ancient treasure, be fascinated as she visits the tombs of Jewish mystics, and, perhaps, scream in terror as she is visited in the dark of night by an enormous snake – only to breathe a sigh of relief when she is saved by her faithful Afghan hound.
Juliette vividly describes her visit to a Bedouin village, and the trouble this causes, both in the kibbutz where she lives and among the Bedouins. But with keen wit, steely nerve, and kind heart, she manages to please everyone, including her readers, as she saves the day and mends frayed tempers.
