Much joy this day, friends!


What a special week, including: equinox, full moon, International Days of Happiness and Forests, and World Water Day. May this special time bring you an awakening to your whole, balanced, harmonious nature with nature. I hope you are able to be in close connection with the wonders of nature changing each day.

As I ground my body from recent travels, I am so grateful for the adventures-- all the ecosystems I explored and amazing people I was blessed to meet. The Puerto Rico YogAdventure trip expanded my heart treemendously. The Citizen Science Conference in North Carolina grow my brain. I was awaken to new realities of the environmental injustices the people of Puerto Rico face and how communities are working together with neighbors, scientists, and various organizations to improve the quality of life for people, plants, parrots, and more.

Thank you all for supporting our Karma Yoga initiative and made generous donations to some of the people of Puerto Rico hardest hit by Hurricane Maria. We meet with folks at Plenitud PR that are doing amazing things to help Puerto Rican live with more resilience and sustainability. The donations are being distributed to the community they serve in the western mountains. For more on the PR YogAdventure 2019, see onetreelove.com/reflections in the coming week.

Each adventure throughout the year is an opportunity to connect with love of self, community, and nature in group and private settings. Reach out in email, Facebook, or at the commUNITY gatherings listed below and on onetreelove.com to learn more.

Wellness Tip
Balanced tree planters @ PR, Feb 2019

Balancing poses promote focused attention, leg strength, and grounding for the body and mind. As in all poses, it takes mindfulness to find balance. Try these tips to find harmony in tree or other standing balance poses:

1) Spread your base and root your feet down.
2) Set your gaze on something that isn't moving.
3) Draw attention and energy to the center line of symmetry of the body.
4) Connect with the inhale to lift you up and exhale to root you down.
5) Fall with grace and try again (or as a 5th grader once told me See-Mme-Try).


What are your thoughts on finding balance? We would love to hear from you at lisa@onetreelove.com.
