Psinergy is happy to be partnering with Earth Dance Farm for CSAs this year. Earth Dance Farm is entering into their 11th year of business this year, and is a very stable farm. Even though CSA day is tomorrow (Friday), we wanted to get this out today so you can look things over, check out Earth Dance Farm and take advantage of the awesome opportunity below if you so feel inclined.
FYI: Earth Dance Farm is offering 5% off CSA sign-ups on for CSA Day (February 24)!
Why Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
Fresh food grown locally and sustainably
Know the farmer and how your food is grown
Visit the farm where it's grown
Support your local economy with like-minded neighbors
Our philosophy: the land is a gift to be cared for and nourished with communication and kinship. It is with joy and good, honest sweat that we work these fields to produce the most nutritious and flavor-filled vegetables and fruits that you can find.
Our method: We do not use any synthetic chemicals or fertilizers in growing our crops. We rely on compost, green manures, and some organic fertilizers to supplement our soil. The soil is managed with cover crops, crop rotations and fallow times.
Our community: We are located just south of Rochester, MN, in the fertile, unglaciated Bluff Country. We deliver our produce through our CSA to families in Rochester, Austin, Winona and the Twin Cities. We also offer on farm pick-up for those in our neighborhood.

Natural Awakenings Twin Cities: "Letter from the Publisher"
It's 2017 --- Where can we go?
For many, 2016 was a nightmare. Now, while both André and I try to keep politics out of our business life as much as possible... we see that last year's political climate hit many people very hard, and it doesn't seem that is going away anytime soon.
As business owners, we do sometimes work with people that have different ideas, different viewpoints, and different backgrounds than we do. We do this not because we have to, or according to some because it makes good business sense (the "money-is-money" viewpoint)... we do this because we see that everyone is valuable and that each individual brings a uniqueness into this world that is correct for that person in that moment, whether right, wrong, good, bad or otherwise according to us.
During the political storm of 2016, I found that both André and I were utilizing the tools of Ho'oponono ("Thank you, I love you, I'm sorry, Please Forgive Me") pretty frequently, as well as various Access Consciousness tools like "What's good and right about this whole thing that we're just not seeing and/or receiving?", "How does this benefit mankind?", and other similar phrases. We also realize that holding onto the conflict, the anger, and harder-to-digest emotions is not good for our health, and obviously use the tools of Colorpuncture and the wisdom of Ayurveda to help maintain and increase our health and wellness overall.
So it's 2017 - it is a new chapter - a chapter written by you and no one else, and even though many have already determined what things will be written in it based on past thoughts, feelings, emotions, and judgments, what can you do that gives you a brighter future than you ever could have imagined possible in this new year?
André starts new classes!
Even though André has been working with computers since he was a wee-lad, there are always things to learn.
This year, André will be going through classes for the Computer Hacker Professional Certification, Linux Essentials & Administration, Ethical Hacking and Certification, Pentesting, as well as going through the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) training covering Windows Server 2012 R2. Additionally, with André going through this training, it will take a lot off of SchaOn's plate so he can focus more on the Holistic Health branch of the company. 💓
So to say the least, André will be learning a lot of new, fun and exciting things in 2017 that will bring even more value to our clients, friends, and community.
Recipe: Kitchari for the Single Person – or when your Lover can't stand it!
The standard Kitchari Recipe makes a lot, enough to feed like 5 to 8 people. So what do you do if you're single, or the other people in your house just won't eat the Kitchari with you? You could just make the normal recipe, and heat a bit up over the next few days… though, many people don't like to use microwaves, and fresh, newly made Kitchari each day is always the best anyways.
Now, if you look at the original recipe, the amount of spices used for that BIG dish are already really small. Many of them are like 1/4 of a teaspoon, and while 1/8 of a teaspoon is fairly easy to guestimate, that would still be a LOT of Kitchari only cutting the recipe in half, so I decided to create a "Kitchari Single Portion Recipe" to help with this. The awesome thing is, Kitchari is honestly pretty flexible and forgiving. [...]
Fee Schedule Changes
Every so often, a company needs to take a look at their pricing structures, often around the end or beginning of a year. Our company is no different, and while we do try to be as fiscally responsible as possible, and only charging what we need, we do need to make a few changes in the fees that we charge.
*1st Follow-up included with the price of the Initial Consultation started 1/1/2017. **At this time, current members will stay at the previous pricing structure and we do not plan on changing that. Only new members will be at the new price. Everything else with the member benefits is still the same.
SchaOn is currently in talks with the Institute to offer a new class, "Colorpuncture for Me and My Family". This class is a full day class and covers some of the basic theories of Esogetics Holistic Medicine and Colorpuncture, the "Function Circle" therapies, Converter Point therapies (for pain), Brain Coordination therapies, therapies for better sleep, restlessness, boosting the immune system, lymph issues and more. This is a great class to learn some very useful self-care therapies that SchaOn personally uses on a regular basis on himself as well as André.
If you are interested in this class, please email stating your interest. Tentatively, we're looking to teach this class on 2/10 or 2/11, and for the first time it's taught it will be offered for $80 (future classes of this will probably be $125).
Notice: If you cannot afford this class for one reason or another though really want to participate, please let us know and let us know what you feel you can offer as an equitable exchange. We will evaluate each request on a case-by-case basis.
"Disease is a Symbol. Healing is the understanding of the Symbol."

And as always --- please keep referring people to us (on the tech side, for computer clients we give you a $10 credit towards future service --- on the health side we are not allowed to do that). If they have questions about what we do, or if we can help (which is very common on the health side of our business)... have them give us a call. We're pretty friendly and try to explain things well.

One of my favorite parts about being a publisher is the early glance at all the informative articles and wonderful advertisers that will be featured in the upcoming issue. When I sat down with my morning coffee to see what Natural Awakenings was serving up for January 2017, I felt such pride for the work I get to do and the amazing things I get to share with you all. I needed that feeling because, to be honest, this job, I imagine like all jobs, can be a struggle at times!
