Well, I’m not sure where the time has gone, but it's coming up on our 10th anniversary of Cool Springs Ranch as a provider of grass-fed meats and eggs in Saskatchewan!

But in spite of fresh challenges every year, the dream of raising healthy traditional foods and ranching holistically has only blossomed and matured.

Remove Food and Chemical Sensitivities and Allergies Through NAET® Program
by Dr. Ranvir Pahwa
What is It? NAET® (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique) is a natural and non-invasive, drugless procedure to treat and eliminate all kinds of sensitivities and allergies to foods, herbs, vitamins, chemicals, environmental substances, etc. NAET was discovered by Dr. Devi Nambudripad in 1983, who postulated that almost all disorders (also comprising developmental disorders) are caused when the electromagnetic forces of allergens (foreign substance – foods, chemicals, etc.) interrupt the energy flow inside the body.

Crystal Journey Tours Saskatchewan
A Night To Remember Tour
by David Hickey
When most people consider a life altering experience they may have had an event happen that could have included a death in the family, a job loss, a breakup, etc. Well, for me, the life altering experience was one that was unexpected and none of the above. I had offered up to the universe my intention to make the world a better place. What that looked like I had no idea —a monastic life? a job involving the environment? volunteering? I didn't know. I had come across this Buddhist teaching of Bodhisattva, "A person who is able to reach nirvana but delays doing so out of compassion in order to save suffering beings." I thought this was it, what more could I ask for? But, what the heck would that look like?
100 Pounds Loss in 165 Days: It’s Been Life Changing!
by Steve Hurley
My story starts in the early 1990s when I travelled the world as a professional wrestler, thinking I was in the best shape of my life. Man, was I wrong. I was part of an industry that had me flying around the world, wrestling in front of thousands of people on live TV tapings, and all the way down to local venues in remote communities. My biggest gratitude was being able to wrestle in local First Nation communities across Canada. I would spend hours driving, sometimes on winter roads, across frozen lakes and logging roads, just to get to the community. It was all worth it once we were there.

Expect the Unexpected with Animal Communication
by Jadi Kindred
Unexpected answers is a common characteristic of intuitive communication. When I first begin a reading for my clients, they often have a preconceived idea of what the problem may be for their beloved pet. I, myself, may have another preconceived idea as well. The answers I receive are usually very surprising to me and unexpected. That is when I know I had made a strong connection with that particular animal. After a reading, there may also be an unexpected change in the animal's behaviour. I would like to share with you a couple of those stories.
