Natural Awakenings San Diego

Letter from The Publisher

Elaine Russo


One of the things I love about being a Natural Awakenings publisher is the relationships I’ve formed with other publishers. This month I am sharing our Denver publisher’s letter with you as her words and heart resonate with me. We both birthed our publications 10 years ago. Now we both have decided to cut the umbilical cord and let some other passionate publisher take over. Anyone out there looking to make a difference in the lives of our amazing community in a fresh, impactful way? I invite you to reach out to discuss the possibilities of becoming a publisher and discover the new love of your life.



Re-Writing Valentine’s Day

Let’s re-write what Valentine’s Day means.

Let’s decide it’s not just about being coupled; it’s about being whole within ourselves.

Let’s decide it’s not just about our significant others, but more about love, compassion and kindness for everyone, including ourselves.

Instead of spending your money on flowers and chocolate, give a helping hand up to your fellow beings by giving it to a beggar on the street or donating it to a shelter for humans or animals.

Remember that holiday feeling of love and gratitude you had not even two months ago? Extend that same energy to everyone on Valentine’s Day.

Let’s decide Valentine’s Day is about us all, instead of we two. Maybe our loving kindness will deepen our own inner  wellspring of love for self and others.
