Lourdes’s With love notes for the Summer~ Nourish:
This issue has been cooking for a long time! The theme is NOURISH and we hope it you find it good food for the soul.
The theme brought up a lot of ideas on what truly is nourishing, and it was not all about food. Our writers went straight for the soul.
How I nourish myself
One thing that nourishes my soul is learning. Whether it’s through Audible (currently my most used form of consumption), conferences/workshops/ classes (which are my favorite), reading, conversation or jumping into something new by getting my hands dirty, I love learning!
Over the years I’ve met with nutritionists, health coaches, ayurvedic consultants and more because I’m pretty curious about improving my health. Almost everyone mentions digestion. One of them may have even asked for “proof” of digestion in an effort to tell if my digestive system was working properly. (Hint: it was not appropriate dinner conversation!)
It’s all about digestion!
No matter how wholesome, organic and good-for-you the food we consume is, it is the digesting that really matters. On a physical level, this might not be a savory (excuse the pun!) thing to consider. But truly, food is only nourishing if your body can break it down and absorb it.
I am working on building in the time and discipline to integrate and more deeply absorb into my life the information and knowledge I am voraciously consuming. Being nourished by what I enjoy consuming is an art and skill.
One of the most life changing experiences of 2017 so far was attending the Archangel Academy, founded by Giovanni Marsico. The next event is the Archangel Summit in Toronto on September 9. I highly recommend it to anyone, especially mission driven, big vision and learning loving people. I hope you find something juicy in this issue to consume that is nourishing and inspiring.
