Charting a New Course
Summer’s here, and it’s time to shine in the bright sunshine and breathe new life into our current reality! This time of year is an ideal opportunity to improve our mind, body and spirit. Sail with us on warm summer breezes into a higher way of being and tap into your powerful, innate abilities. We invite you to dive into our June issue and discover healthful tips in our Men’s Health issue and then share all your insights with the husbands, sons, fathers, brothers and friends in your life.
June is also a special month for us, as it marks Natural Awakenings of Greater Ann Arbor edition’s 16th anniversary. We’re more excited than ever, because we now serve Detroit/Wayne County and the Grand Traverse region up north, and later this year the Greater Lansing area, with their very own editions of Natural Awakenings magazine.
For us, it’s been a passion-fueled mission with endless opportunities for personal growth and service to our community month after month since the beginning. We’ve both learned so much and feel grateful and blessed by the many relationships we’ve made with so many enthusiastic readers and local experts gifted with talent and expertise in natural health, spirituality and sustainability.
We look forward to continuing to enrich and educate our community about healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices and connecting like-minded people. Empowering folks with useful information makes a real difference in the health of our planet each and every day.
We thank everyone in this wonderful community who have welcomed us with open arms from our first issue through now. It is a pleasure making friends with so many kindhearted people who care for the wellness of others.
We also want to express our gratitude to all of our advertisers that share the vision and enable us to bring practical, life-changing information to you at no cost. They have helped make this venture possible, so please say thank you by shopping at their stores and using their services. When you do, please tell them that Trina and John at Natural Awakenings sent you!
A special thanks to our staff that believes in our mission—we appreciate and are grateful for all you do: our editors, our distribution team, our national headquarter's “mothership”, and our wonderful leader Sharon Bruckman, we couldn’t do it without all of you!
Be it your toes in the sand or hands tending to your garden, enjoy all the exciting fun summer brings. We encourage you to do whatever it is that helps you recharge to make the most of living an inspired life and continue to expand your horizons.
Lots of love to all the special men in our lives … Happy Father’s Day!
