This past year has been an amazing one for me. I’ve had some major improvements in my health, am forming an incredible group of healing professionals around us, and been lucky enough to join a group of amazingly talented writers who share their insights, inspirations and life journeys on health and wellness. And this group, Village Green Network, is hosting a Healthy Life Summit next week and I’m excited to be hear what comes from the summit.   This FREE online virtual conference is happening March 24-30, and includes 35 of my favorite health experts, authors, doctors, bloggers, farmers and activists , and I get to listen to them from the comfort of my own couch 🙂

Ann Marie Michaels, the host of the Healthy Life Summit,  is a leading advocate of the real food movement and is passionate about leveraging digital media to help spread the word about healthy living choices.  In 2008, she founded Real Food Media – now Village Green Network – providing the highest-quality information from the best bloggers on organic and natural food and lifestyle. She runs a network of healthy lifestyle bloggers that has opened my eyes to so many ways we can improve our health; from small changes in our food choices, why we should shun plastic, natural ointments and salves for bruises, cuts and scrapes, healthy recipes and more.

I just love being able to listen to these summits, in my home, while alone and able to give myself some quiet time to spend on learning how to continue to improve my health. And to be honest, I can’t imagine ever being able to afford the insights all of these folks can offer. So I’m planning to attend it live, but also to buy a copy of the recordings so I can listen again, and catch the parts I’m sure I’ll miss the first time around.  I just love carving out some alone time and staying focused to improving my health, learning new tips for healthy living, and discovering all the ways I can keep my family happy and healthy.

If you can’t watch the event live, or you want to be sure you catch parts you’ll probably miss in the live summit, you can order a copy of the full Summit by clicking on this image below.And since I’m a mmeber of the group, I can offer and you can save 75% off the cost! I’m so excited to offer this to you because the information that will come out of this summit is invaluable and worth much more than the $49 price. I can’t even get into a holistic doctor’s office for less than that 🙂
