Wild Geese

By Mary Oliver
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting –
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.


This is one of my favorite poems.  It encourages us to trust our instincts and pleasure to bring us back into connection with something bigger than ourselves. Studies have shown that connection, to friends, family, community, is the most predictive ingredient for health.  For me, healing touch has been a reliable means of reconnection to myself and thus with the rest of the world.  I invite you “let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. “

Your Nurtured Face

facial 2



Join Heidi Karnitz and Julia Taylor for this afternoon of inner and outer self-care focused on your face.

Born of our own love and regular practice of getting together for “spa night,” we’ve honed a simple but profoundly altering way to nurture and nourish your self both inside and out. Using nature’s gifts of flowers, herbs and honey, we’ve crafted a ritual to take you through what you need to feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and beautiful.


What’s included:

Fascial facial massage demo – increase circulation, release tension, and enhance collagen production

Facial steam – botanical based steam, for your skin, respiratory and immune systems

Facial mask – gentle and deeply cleansing

Moisturize – Hydrate, nourish, and protect your skin


You’ll take away:

  • Facial massage techniques so that you can release tension and express yourself freely
  • Acupressure points that give you the power to care for your whole body while caring for your face
  • A facial routine you can enjoy at home
  • Understanding of a handful of botanical allies for your health needs
  • Ideas for rituals that allow you to deeply nourish yourself
  • A really good feeling!
