The Well Nourished Life Fall 2018

This FALL, Increase Ease, Organization, Inspiration and Creativity in YOUR Kitchen!

Shankari shares about The Well Nourished Life

This fall & winter, increase organization, inspiration & creativity in YOUR kitchen!

Is your life busy?

Ours is.... We are parents, juggling full-time careers as wellness guides and we know the challenges facing a busy family in the modern world trying to experience health, joy and a meaningful sense of purpose in life.

And that first challenge is often just trying to get a healthy dinner on the table. If everyone will actually eat it without compliants that is a bonus....

It’s not easy, but cultivating practices based on meaningful DISCIPLINE and CELEBRATION has helped our family to maintain BALANCE in all aspects of our lives.

In reaching out to our community we learned about YOUR challenges as you seek to feel family harmony and properly nourished while trying to make time for personal care.

Time and again, we heard that support, education, inspiration and creativity in the KITCHEN is an essential key for enjoying a balanced and inspired life.

It’s hard to prioritize time for personal self-care when you’re striving to get a healthy and delicious dinner on the table!
We asked BUSY people what was important to them and the answer was resounding...
Help me to nourish myself and my family!

“over 10 months later, The Well Nourished Life still resonates with me every day… Every meal… Every time I grocery shop… Every time I pick herbs from our garden…!!! It has helped me become a role model for my own daughter in terms of her food choices (which I just love). And I have a new and profound awareness of how cooking for the seasons supports my health. I cannot wait to join you for the Fall/Winter version of The Well Nourished Life.... Thank you Shankari for such a life-changing experience.”

"I am beginning to sense that this course was not only about nourishing with food but nourishing my soul through awareness of my life choices and how they are impacting me. I really can not thank you enough for holding space for me in my healing and well-being!"

- Vicky Morrison, Grassroots Wood Fired Pizza | Yoga Teacher, Ayurvedic Life-Style Consultant

"Shankari, I love the online course experience of The Well Nourished Life. It is the only way I can engage with my busy schedule. I can watch some and watch more later, I can watch anywhere and at any time I want. I can watch it twice if I want to. The key in my opinion is that you have made yourself available to answer all questions etc and backed up the lessons with support. Online is sucky if compared to in-person only when participants can’t engage with the teacher and with you everyone can, so it is awesome!!!"

- Sarah Holloway, Insurance Claims Rep, Mother & Wife Extraordinaire

My biggest take away has been how quickly and easily I am able to create a nourishing meal with whatever foods are available in my fridge or pantry.
