Curious Wise Women Fall 2022

An online, 4 week journey into

What's "GUT" Got to Do with It?

Weight Issues, Brain Health & Stress Management
through Mindful Eating & Meditation

Sept 18 - Oct 20

Curious Wise Women is your personal reset button.
 In the company of other kick-ass women.

Let’s focus for 4 weeks on integrating knowledge and understanding into powerful self-care practices and better gut health!

  • We have trillions of microorganisms that make up our gut microbiome. These gut microbes predispose us to or protect us from many health challenges like weight/bloating issues, managing daily stress, and keeping our brains healthy as we age.
  • Learn how you can influence the diversity and health of your gut microbes through what you eat (and don’t eat). It is really quite easy to do!
  • We all have daily stressors and how we process stress mentally, emotionally, and physically varies. Unresolved stress has a negative impact on the quality of our gut microbiome and  meditation positively affects our gut microbiome by targeting and reducing stress. We will practice daily meditation and you get to choose the amount of time between 10-30 minutes/day.
  • We will endeavor to laugh a LOT and you will likely come out of this with several new friends for life. Our shared journey serves to cultivate self-love that has clarity, grit, intention, compassion, humor, and drive.

Is Curious Wise Women for You?

  • If you want to study the newest science on ways to improve the quality and increase the diversity of your gut microbiome, this is for you
  • If you’d like to eat foods that create a stronger immune system, support steady energy, great digestion, and a calmer nervous system, this is definitely for you! The 12-day Ayurveda cleanse is a game-changer. And the new “I Don’t Do Cleanses” Food Reboot is tailored to those wanting to clean up their diet, get rid of food cravings/lose a little weight, and enjoy lots of new healthy recipes without the commitment to a full cleanse.
  • If you are interested in how all the breath work you’ve done in yoga meshes with the newest scientific research on breathing for optimal health, yep, you! (You’re going to learn a LOT here!)
  • If you are someone who wants to meditate regularly but life gets in your way, this is definitely for you!

And if you want to enrich your world through cultivating fun, rewarding relationships with other great women, this journey has you written all over it
