July 2012 Virtual Self-Care Retreat

This month I'm honored to be participating in Cheryl Harris' July 2012 Self-Care Retreat. I feel like in many ways my blog has morphed from being a food blog into one that's more centered on holistic wellness and self-care. In many ways that transition has been due to the amazing coaching I've received from Cheryl Harris of Harris Whole Health (and author of the blog GF Goodness) over the past year and a half.

I will be writing a post for Saturday July 21 on how simply being creative can share a huge role in self-care. Until my post rolls around, I hope you'll visit the other incredible bloggers who are participating in this event.

Our fantastic group of bloggers and themes:
These posts are to inspire you all to make July a month of reflecting on self-care and the many ways to nourish ourselves. We would like everyone to participate in this event in a way that feels appropriate to them, whether that’s through personal reflection, journal or other self-care. If you would like to share your experience with self-care, we would love to include you in the experience, whether you join us for one week or every week. You can write generally about self-care and how you include it in your life, or “try on” one of the practices we’re blogging about over the course of the next week (food, support and connection, movement, creativity and inward reflection). We ask that you link back to this post so that more people can learn about this retreat, and leave a comment for the weekly theme host, too! At the end of the month, we’ll include a roundup of all the self-care posts you write to inspire others to work on their own self-care.

As a little added incentive, for each post on your goals and your progress you link back here or one of the other co-hosts, you’ll be entered to receive a $50 gift certificate to Nuts.com (they are not sponsoring, Cheryl is donating this gift and wanted something with healthy gluten-free, vegan, sugar-free, etc. options).

Valerie updated last year’s badge to use for the retreat; feel free to use it in your posts. If you would like to be included in our roundup and the drawing, please email a link to your post, along with your name and blog name, to us at selfcareretreat at gmail dot com by July 30, 2012.

Non-bloggers who would like to contribute, please e-mail the full text to the same address and it will be included in the roundup.
