Hello, from my home to yours!

It is my sincere hope that our lovely community is staying well, staying home (if possible) and staying safe. We’ve been dealing with unprecedented times, and from what I’ve seen so far, we’ve been doing so as gracefully as can be expected.
This month, we’ve chosen to run articles we thought would be helpful, nourishing and provide some relief as we traverse these tricky coronavirus waters. From our feature, “Healing the Immune System”, to the etiquette of wearing face masks, to treating the kitchen as a sacred space—there is plenty of useful, fun and soothing information in these pages.

It has been beautiful to see our local businesses and practitioners continuing to help the community in whatever ways they can, while still maintaining safe distancing practices. Check out our “Virtual Event Briefs”, starting on page 8, to learn about trainings, consultations, classes and more currently available online—as well as some great free resources to help us get through the next few weeks.

I would also like to extend my gratitude to this month’s contributing writers, who jumped on board with our Apprentice Writer Program, contributing the Artist Spotlight (page 26) and Community Spotlight (page 36) articles in this issue. We have received so many responses to our recent shout-out for aspiring writers, eager to take part in this opportunity to learn from professionals and be published. I am very proud to offer the program and am also super appreciative to my editor, Michelle Bense, for providing the edits and feedback so that these writers can hone their skills.

During this challenging time in our lives, I hope that you find some of the tools you need in these pages, in our community, and in yourselves.

Be well,
Holly Baker,
