Acupuncture Points of America

Episode Summary

Today Beany, Joanne and I talk about their conscious choice to plant roots in this community, where they could acquire land to specifically grow food and health.  They have never stopped making that conscious choice and are enjoying the fruits of their labor now with booming business, building their new home and learning valuable lessons along the way.  We get into the communities in the world known as Blue Zones and the following Blue Zones project that Joanne lead as the project coordinator.  I point out that Beany and Joannne, in their various roles that emanate a frequency of love, are absolutely creating a Blue Zone of their own here in the area.  We take an unexpected and heart warming turn down memory lane, we touch on Beany’s role in the minds of the youth and dive a little bit into the intersection of Spirituality and Religion in all of our lives.  And then we talk about food again.  Because it may just be food that heals the world.  I know that’s where I’ve landed after this inspiring conversation with two beautiful lights I am honored to have as friends.  IF you take anything from today, I do hope that you are inspired to support your local farms, learn about your food, go to farmers markets and begin to eat more seasonally since diversity is beneficial in every aspect of life.
