The current issueAllowing ourselves to get Back2Nature and back to our true selves!
by Kyla Bouvier

Allowing ourselves the opportunity to get back to nature, back to ourselves, is a powerful practice and a gift! In our day and age, getting back to nature and cultivating a connection back to ourselves is essential. When we allow ourselves the time for reconnection and daily reflection, we come back to the core of who we are. Have you been desiring to spend more time outdoors since the pandemic started? If you have, it’s probably no coincidence, your soul is likely craving that connection that Mother Nature offers as a gift.

Are You Breathing Too Much?
by Sussanna Czeranko, ND

We take thousands of breaths every day without thinking about it. Breathing is as natural as the sun shining in the sky. What possibly could be mysterious about breathing? From the moment our little bottoms were struck by the doctor at our birth, we have had the innate wisdom of inhaling and exhaling without consulting an instruction manual or a breathing coach. Breathing is unconscious, simple, and seamless. At least it is if we are healthy. But if we have a respiratory condition such as asthma, COPD, sleep apnea, or allergies, things get complicated and can get serious if untreated.

Introduction to Permaculture
Garden Therapy Yorkton/Prairie Permaculture

by Stacey Tress

Typing my article here at my computer, behind closed blinds with towels overtop, (to aid in blocking the sun/heat), my heart knows we need a better solution. Although cool on this main floor with just the ceiling fans circulating the air, I know as the day goes on, things will continue to heat up in here. COVID restrictions have been recently lifted in Saskatchewan and we are now “free” to get out there and enjoy life/family/friends again. But here we are in our second “heat wave” in the Prairies (July), and when you add in the poor air quality from the numerous forest fires in northern Saskatchewan, that feeling of “out of the frying pan and into the fire” comes to mind. What could be a better solution?

An Update From Our Farm to Your Table…
by Amy Miller

Summer has brought us an extra challenge this year. Most farms regardless of type are dealing with drought this growing season. On our farm this affects the production level of our gardens and hay crop the most. Even with sprinklers and irrigation, if we don’t have an assist from Mother Nature once in a while, some of our vegetables are either not growing or showing major heat stress. On a positive note however, the key to most problems that we have found is diversity, as it is rare that everything struggles in the same season.

The Healthy Breast Foundations Program
by Pam Fichtner

Do you want to love and honour your breasts more fully? Can you commit to diving deeper to truly understand how to reduce your risk of breast cancer and prevent its recurrence? Then this program is for you!! I have been involved in breast health education ever since I graduated from massage therapy school in Vancouver in 1997. I have provided countless breast massages to my clients over the years, ranging from breast examinations, to breast reduction surgery care, to breast cancer post-surgery sessions. I have also taught breast massage at the massage schools and to massage therapists who are already practising, and to the general public in a variety of formats. I focus in particular in these sessions on how to do breast massage for a client, or how to do it on yourself. Contact info: sephira@sasktel.net, visit broadway.health, or call 306-230-7407.

Shifting from Expectation to Exploration is Advice that Changed My Life
by Laurie Renton

Money is a resource for expressing our humanity and we are in a wake-up call for the transformation of ourselves and our world from scarcity and fear to abundance and love. Money truly is the most universal, motivating, mischievous, miraculous, misunderstood part of our lives and yet we often bury our heads in the sand around the topic of money. Money only has as much power that we assign to it, and sorry to say we have assigned it with immense power.

Hair Loss in Children
The Impact It Has on the Family

by Jennifer McCowan

When a child’s hair falls out, it is one of the scariest things to happen to a parent because it’s a clear indication that something is not right, and the thought of what that could be is terrifying. In most cases, it is not anything serious, however it is certainly something to address.

by Melva Armstrong

One of the reasons I have chosen to live on a farm is so I can be close to nature. I believe that nature is the great healer, and it is going into nature that can allow me to relax and tune into all the beauty that she offers me every day. Focusing on that beauty takes me into a more peaceful and relaxing space inside myself that forgets about problems and feels happy and connected to all that is on the earth. That’s why spending time in nature is so very important to everyone’s overall health and wellness. When I heard from Kyla Bouvier about her work with nature, I was totally excited to have her write an article for the journal. She has titled it, Allowing ourselves to get Back2Nature and back to our true selves! (p. 12)
