During my own hibernation these past months I have been working on ways to help my clients reach their fullest potential. In order to help more effectively I have become a certified health coach and am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with my existing clients through Land of Milk and Honey Herbs and with health coaching clients through Omaha Whole Living. Read below to learn more!
In the meantime, I'm excited to bring you some springtime news about all that is going on at Omaha Whole Living. As many of you know I created this space to provide a sense of community, with opportunities to expand your mind, learn new skills, move your body, nourish your spirit, and improve your peace and well-being.
Right now we are a group of 5 practitioners offering services and classes. I can vouch for the amazingness of each and every one of them. Check them out below and I hope you find some nourishing support that you might enjoy! Healing is a journey and best done with a team of supporters.
I love this quote by herbalist Rosemary Gladstar. It captures the essence of what Omaha Whole Living is all about:
"You can't get energy, health, and vitality from a pill, or even from a cup of herbal tea. Everyday radiant well-being, in mind, body, and soul, is a function of everyday self-care. It's a prescription for life. It's part of what you do, what you take into your body, and what you feed your mind. Radiant well-being is not taking a pill for this pain, a dose of X for that problem, a quick fix to get rid of the lethargy you're dragging around with you. Radiant well-being is, instead, finding your joy in life. Exploring your passions. Getting up from your chair and moving your body. Wiggling. Eating good food. Playing hard and resting well. Putting your mind to work. Laughing."

Pay-What-You-Can Massage Therapy with Margaret Johnson
Margaret combines her love of bodywork with social change through a massage therapy practice called Big Open Hearts, and offers massage appointments at OWL on Sundays (and soon will have weekday availability!).
Big Open Hearts is a non-traditional business. It's a little bit like "pay what you can," but with a slightly different spirit.
A better description is "pay what makes you feel generous within your boundaries" and it's called the Gift Economy. Learn more about this approach and what to expect from a massage on her website. Or just take care of your body and make an appointment for a massage today!

Health Coaching with Kate - Coming soon! In addition to my herbal consultations, custom herbal formulas, and the Herbal Intensive program, I'm expanding my practice into health coaching! These sessions are for those who are ready to begin a new chapter in their health journey. I will coach you through making lasting changes in your health.
I will encourage and support you as we look at basic pillars of health such as nutrition, getting good sleep, exercise, and other lifestyle suggestions. Together we can make real change in your life!
While I have just finished my certification process I am waiting to begin taking individual clients until I have finished my advanced training in the end of August. In the meantime, I will be needing 8-13 volunteers for private health coaching related assignments. If you are interested in this opportunity please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
