Got Blue-Green Mind?
There is still time to get blue-green mind this summer within the woods and water. Being surrounded by blue (water) and green (trees) can calm and energize the mind and body.
Having a mind and body primed to achieve my goals with clarity and ease is the blue-green mind experience I am going for in life. Would you like to join me? We still have time this summer and fall (and maybe this winter-- more to come on a possible winter blue-green yogAdventure) to get out on the water and among the trees to soak in their blue-green energy and mindset. If I can be of service to help you find blue-green mind, please reach out in email, Facebook, or in-person at the commUNITY gatherings listed below and on onetreelove.com.
See you in the woods and water soon!
With love and gratitude,

TREE Fund - Tour des Trees
HUGE thank you to all those that supported Tour des Trees this year. Your donations totaling over $1000, words of encouragement, training ride company, and tips all meant so much to me. Together, we raised $327,000 for the TREE Fund's work with tree research and education across the country. It certainly is (tree)teamwork that makes it all possible.Thank you for being part of the OneTreeLove team!
It was a treemendous pleasure to participate in the first half the tour as it rolled through Ohio. It was the first time in the 26 years of the tour history that it came through Ohio. And it was more than a bike ride! Overall, 71 riders participated in the 580-mile tour, as well as participated in 5 yoga classes, planted 11 trees, dedicated 17 trees, and delivered 9 Professor Pricklethron programs.
Join us Saturday night to celebrate with a picnic!

It has been a summer of abundant personal growth, community, and adventure. Read more of Lisa's reflections below and on the OneTreeLove Reflections page:
Got blue-green mind? Many of you have heard me talk about blue-green mind this summer at various yogAdventures. If you haven't here is my run down on how to get it.
Blue Mind: The research of Wallace J. Nichols, Ph.D. and his colleagues showcases the physical, mental, and emotional benefits to being in and around water. Think about all the things associated with the color blue-- water, clear sky, cool temperatures, mellow moods. These things can make us calm and keep us clear headed.
Red Mind:Now think of the opposite -red- associated with fire, hot temperatures, stop lights, danger, and stress. So a red mind, as researching Michael Gross published in 2014, is when we are stressed, hot headed, can't think clearly and need to stop.
Green Mind: Then there is the work of Kathleen L. Wolf, Ph.D. and others that study the benefits of being among trees and other thriving plants. This can then be called green mind and associated with a state of mind that is growing and going for your goals like the trees.
Blue-Green Mind: Putting together the understanding and practices of blue and green minds is the ultimate in growth mindset, as I see it. When in a state of blue-green mind, you can achieve your dreams with ease and focus. You can get this by being around calming and energizing elements in nature.
What are your thoughts on this? I would love to hear from you at email@example.com.

The moon (she) is powerful. She impacts the ocean tides. She impacts our bodily tides (you are made up of about 70% water). She reflects light. She waxes and wanes. She reminds us to keep our cool.
This full moon (Sunday), spend some time soaking in some self love and moon shine:
