Bright & Beautiful Newsletter Autumnal Greetings From Mia Park
It's my favorite time of year! Greetings, friends. As the sun's warmth takes on that Autumn feel, it's time to turn inwards. Our bodies will crave different foods, our sleep patterns may change and, like Mother Nature around us, we slowly ease into hibernation. I caught a squirrel crawling into my bathroom window, no doubt searching for food to store for her long winter rest. I can relate to her searching for support as I am doing the same.
This is a humbling time and amazing growth period for me. I'm about to have oral surgery and massive dental reconstruction. In the end, 20 teeth will be removed, replaced or crowned. My insurance will cover only $1,500 of the $26,423 total. I'm having an online fundraiser for $20,000 and we're 2/3 of the way there! I'm asking you, the community, for financial assistance during my time of repair and healing. Check out my fundraising page where you can watch my video and read more details. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated. There are perks for you, too. I greatly appreciate your support and consideration to donate and share my story with your community. Thank you so very much.
It's High Time for Chai
Yum, there's nothing more delicious than a cup of warm chai. Chai is also very good for your digestion, especially if made with raw cow's milk or a non-dairy milk. Hereare my favorite recipes.
Planned Parenthood Help
Republicans are trying to defund the most important source of women's health care in the country. As Elizabeth Warren asks, "Did you fall down, hit your head and think you woke up in the 1950's?" Let's rally to keep PP funded!

Teacher Training: Learn to Teach Guided Relaxation: The Art of Yoga Nidra. Oct 4. 10am-4pm. Moksha WB. Chicago, ILI am passionate about this practice. Learn to safely and confidently teach Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra (Sanskrit for Yogic Sleep) is a powerful technique from the Tantra Yoga tradition. It is both the name of a state of mind, and the name of a deeply healing, resting practice. Yoga Nidra creates an altered state of consciousness, allowing the practitioner to relax and heal holistically, expand their faculty of imagination, enter the realm of the subconscious, and manifest seemingly magical changes in their life.
At its heart, hatha yoga is more than flexibility or strength in postures - it is the management of prana, the vital life force that animates all levels of being. Prana is the intelligence that coordinates our senses, and the perceptible manifestation of our higher selves. By becoming more attentive to prana we can invigorate the body and mind, develop and expand inner awareness, and open the door to higher states of consciousness. I love teaching this workshop. Please join me.
