Women’s Herb Camp

Entering the Red Tent

For the last decade, my daughter and I have been going to the Northern California Herbal Symposium in Laytonville, California. Every year we go and I leave with my “cup runneth over.” My entire being vibrates with love and support. Simply being with 400 women that are connecting, teaching, healing one another in a safe beautiful nurturing environment is Bliss. I got loved up so’s I can keep spreading it and always focused of protecting & healing Gaia.

The following text came to me via my grrlfriend Mandy, via Allison via Emma Schubert who I believe wrote it.

THE BODY-MIND CONNECTION…THEY TEACH IT AT STANFORD!!

” I just finished taking an evening class at Stanford. The last lecture was on the mind-body connection–the relationship between stress and disease. The speaker (head of psychiatry at Stanford) said, among other things, that one of the best things that a man could do for his healthis to be married to a woman whereas for a woman, one of the best things she could do for her health was to nurture her relationships with her girlfriends. At first everyone laughed, but he was serious.

Women connect with each other differently and provide support systems that help each other to deal with stress and difficult life experiences. Physically this quality “girlfriend time” helps us to create more serotonin– a neurotransmitter that helps combat depression and can create a general feeling of well being. Women share feelings whereas men often form relationships around activities. They rarely sit down with a buddy and talk about how they feel about certain things or how their personal lives are going. Jobs? Yes. Sports? Yes. Cars? Yes. Fishing, hunting, golf? Yes. But their feelings?– rarely. Women do it all of the time. We share from our souls with our sisters, and evidently that is very good for our health. He said that spending time
With a friend is just as important to our general health as jogging or working out at a gym.

There’s a tendency to think that when we are “exercising” we are doing something good for our bodies, but when we are hanging out with friends, we are wasting our time and should be more productively engaged– not true. In fact, he said that failure to create and maintain quality personal relationships with other humans is as dangerous to our physical health as smoking! So every time you hang out with a gal pal, just pat yourself on the back and congratulate yourself for doing something good for your health! We are indeed very, very lucky. Soooo let’s toast to our friendship with our girlfriends. Evidently it’s very good for our health.”
