Bounty From the Box : The CSA Farm Cookbook, Author Mi Ae Lipe

06-04-17  Bounty From the Box : The CSA Farm Cookbook, Author Mi Ae Lipe

Born in South Korea, Mi Ae Lipe grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she first became interested in food and gardening.

A self-taught illustrator, she lived and worked in Wisconsin and Minnesota for over a decade, during which time she met Jack Hedin, owner of Featherstone Farm, one of largest community-supported agriculture (CSA) farms in southeastern Minnesota.

After doing a logo project for the farm, she became one of its subscribers, and the idea for a cookbook that could help people figure out what to do with their CSA produce was born.

She self-published Tastes from Valley to Bluff: The Featherstone Farm Cookbook in 2007, which included 300 recipes and featured Featherstone exclusively. The book met with great regional success and acclaim, and was even used by the personal chef to the governor of Minnesota.

Several years later, she decided to expand the original cookbook to include nearly 40 new fruits and vegetables, as well as to showcase remarkable CSA farms throughout the United States. This second book, Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook, was self-published in the fall of 2015.

Mi Ae now resides near Seattle, home of the world-famous Pike Place Market. She regularly indulges in a favorite hobby—eating great food. A freelance editor and graphic designer, she has her own business, What Now Design, in which she helps authors and companies create books, marketing publications, and branding identity campaigns. She also lives another life as a traffic safety advocator, writing a blog called Driving in the Real World, dedicated to improving driver education and road safety in America.

Loving What Is ~The Work of Byron Katie at Omega June 02, 2017  June 04, 2017

For almost a decade, Byron Katie suffered from constant thoughts of suicide. Then one morning in 1986, she experienced a life-changing realization. “In that instant of no-time,” she says, “I discovered that when I believed my thoughts, I suffered, but that when I didn’t believe them, I didn’t suffer, and that this is true for every human being.”

From this realization came The Work, an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, that requires nothing more than a pen and paper, and an open mind. The Work is a way of identifying and questioning the thoughts that cause all the suffering in the world. As Katie guides you with her humor and lovingly incisive clarity, you will find that your stressful beliefs begin to radically shift.

Experience the freedom of undoing whatever makes you unhappy, and allow your mind to return to its true, awakened, peaceful, creative nature.

This workshop is also appropriate for professional counselors and life coaches who wish to use the information and techniques in their practice.

Byron Katie, founder of The Work, has one job: to teach people how to end their own suffering. As she guides people through the powerful process of inquiry she calls The Work, they find that their stressful beliefs—about life, other people, or themselves—radically shift and their lives are changed forever. Based on Byron Katie’s direct experience of how suffering is created and ended, The Work is an astonishingly simple process, accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds, and requires nothing more than a pen, paper, and an open mind. Through this process, anyone can learn to trace unhappiness to its source and deal with it there. Katie (as everyone calls her) not only shows us that all the problems in the world originate in our thinking: she gives us the tool to open our minds and set ourselves free.

Recording Artist, Educator and Sound Healer Teacher Leigh Ann Phillips

Raising Consciousness through Sound, Music and Vibration. A lot of people think of sound healing for just that, healing. But Healing is really about raising the level of consciousness, as Healing happens via the Higher Mind, to the conscious mind, to the physical body.

Leigh Ann Phillips is a recording artist and educator, teaching sound healing, meditation as well as instructing people of the complexities of the Human Living Soul.  She is on a mission to assist people in realizing there is no separation from the physical and spiritual. Healing, having better relationships and more prosperity is about raising consciousness.  In order to change our lives, we have to begin by going deeply within ourselves, as our physical life is just a reflection of our inner world, including all levels of the human mind. Leigh Ann’s intention is to allow sound and real spiritual tools to help improve wellness, as well as allowing more of the benefits of the Tree of Life, The Sephiroth, to enter our lives. Being a student on the path, a student of the Way, transforms our lives on all levels. Sound is a deep teacher of this wisdom, as sound changes physical matter. Sound changes physical DNA, and it also awakens Spiritual DNA.  She recently completed her seventh album, The Secret Fire, and is in the process of writing her first book.
