Sullivan started selling his drinks in 2009 to yoga studios and health food stores and has since expanded to dozens of Whole Foods stores. In addition to turmeric, the beverages contain other spices like cayenne pepper, cardamom and ginger. “People are becoming more sensitive to what makes them feel good; herbs are a huge part of that,” says the 35-year-old entrepreneur.
Monday morning, the new week is being cracked open, life is presenting itself on this gorgeous open palette, and I am excited for the day. This past week end was the 4th of July, a national holiday, a celebration of independence, honoring all the work this country has done to create and insure freedom, really!
The day I went to visit the Esperanza School will be a memory I will have forever. Driving down the dusty road just about ten minutes from where I work I could see as we pulled up that this was going to be hard. My friend Doris and I were going to a board meeting that day to tell them about the fundraiser we wanted to put on at the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort to help support their needs.
Miki is a magnet, a force not to be dismissed, from the moment I met her I knew she was a person beyond any limitations. I felt her passion immediately, this was someone I wanted to know, i wanted this person in my life, I was awe struck.
We (the community of Nosara and beyond) were able to raise about $17,000 in a very short span of time for the Esperanza School Project. A project that started out of a true heart opening- by witnessing the state in which this school has been left. Left after earthquake damage, left after a major robbery. It fueled me. It made everything seem possible.
To be able to be vulnerable, to be humble to be able to come from the place of openness (and yet still hold the reins) is power. It also takes a tremendous amount of work and commitment. Its much easier to tell people what to do, but to be open to hear what others have to contribute is powerful and also much more exciting, passionate, and creative.
Roll out of you IKEA bed and jump to the beat of world change, you have the power. It doesn’t matter where you shop or what you wear, what matters is that you matter, and if you want to feel good about you, do something for someone else, its that simple.
The idea behind the conference is to create community, to come together as a collective and raise the conscious energy on all levels, the conference is not only a space to gather, but also to have the experience of change. To have the opportunity to step in as a group to be a game changer, to understand truly what it means to be a global citizen, to really reap the benefits of what it is to be of service.
