May 2012 Publishers Letter

After a trip to visit Terry’s parents and honor the passing of her grandmother, we look to the May issue and upcoming Mothers Day with a renewed gratitude and appreciation for all mothers.

We also are full of appreciation for our two-year anniversary as publishers of Natural Awakenings. Although NA has been around longer than that, we’ve enjoyed steering its growth since May of 2010. Back then, we distributed our magazine to 350 places around the Denver Metro area. Now, we can be found in over 1100 of Colorado’s finest establishments in 9 counties in Denver and Boulder!

This edition honors all women and is loaded with incredible resources for women! We have smart Editorial contributions from the community: Dr Meier, Clear Sky Medical, shares her expertise on the conflicting information we hear in the media regarding hormones and anti-aging medicine; Acupuncturist Valerie Sojberg from Eli Ashby Healing Arts gives her take on fighting wrinkles; Laurel Wilson and Tracy Wilson Peters excerpt from their new book, “The Greatest Pregnancy Ever” and learn why calcium isn’t the whole story to healthy bones.

We are proud of the assembled practitioners in our Resource Guide, they are all truly gifted! For an unbelievable massage, Brenna Witt in Kittredge helped me untangle some horrible back spasms recently! Our calendar is bursting with more great activities, classes and groups to help you grow and connect than we’ve ever seen. Heal with angels, change your belief systems, learn why you have money blockages, learn to dowse, clear your energy or aura…the possibilities for growth and change are endless! Was that part of your New Year Resolutions? If you haven’t gotten to it yet, May’s a great time!

Happy Mother’s Day and thank you from the bottom of our hearts to nurturers, caretakers and Moms everywhere!

May 2011 Publishers Letter

May 2011 is our anniversary issue – one full year since we took the reins of Natural Awakenings here in Colorado. A year ago mid-April, we were driving cross-country, a compact car in the lead and a dangerously overloaded rental truck towing a trailer - like Smokey and the Bandit, but with cell phones.

What a rollercoaster year this has been! Luckily, there are a lot of local resources for stress relief inside these pages.

Webster’s defines wellness as: the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal. Myrtle Fillmore, founder of the Unity movement over 120 years ago, proclaimed “I am a child of God, and therefore I do not inherit sickness.” What if our natural state is to be vibrantly healthy and glowing with joy?

Happy Mother’s Day! This month, we honor all women, mothers, the female perspective, the feminine energy, the Goddess that is every one of YOU!

This past year has taught us much about ourselves, how to still be friends and business partners (not easy!), how grateful we are for all the changes we’ve had the courage to make, and for those hurdles we have yet to overcome. We’ve learned that no matter how busy the day is, you better make time for yourself or the next time you look up, it’ll be 8 p.m. and you’ll wonder where the time went! We’ve learned that having a pet is one of the great joys of life, no matter how long it takes to clean the hair out of your clothes, carpet, etc.

We’ve made a lot of progress in our commitment to Natural Awakening’s wellness: doubling our distribution; hiring a better-quality printer; upgrading our paper stock to make the colors sizzle; hiring a new layout expert; new email newsletter; new editing team; combining Boulder/Denver; new website and more. More of you are coming across our magazine than ever before from Castle Rock to Longmont and everywhere in between, but you won’t find us out in the street in box. No, you’ll have to go inside a local business to pick us up because we support local businesses!

Our first priority is to you, our reader, to provide educational and inspirational articles to keep you moving along in your journey of self-discovery. Our goal is to empower you to take charge of you and your family’s health and well-being. We want to connect you with local businesses and foster wellness and prosperity in our community.

Thank you so much for being a part of our adventure; we can’t wait to see what our 2nd year brings!

Dedicated to our beloved and loyal Gracie, whose playful and loving spirit will never die in our hearts.

May 2010 Publishers Letter

What an exciting change and a new beginning for us.

Our mission is to live lives full of motion, energy, love and service to others. We have both been corporate warriors most of our lives; now we are business owners. And with that comes an enormous responsibility to help others, become even more of an important resource to the community, and learn and grow along with our readers and advertisers.

We have been led to Denver. Maybe it's because of the 300 days of sunshine, the Rocky Mountains on our doorstep in which to hike, bike, camp, and ski. Maybe it's because studies show a correlation between weight loss and altitude. Perhaps it's the 200,000 acres of organic farmland in surrounding areas or the diversity of neighboring hippy Boulder and right-leaning Colorado Springs. We know it's beautiful here. This area has a unique identity, great people, amazing culture, sports and great recreational opportunities. Because what Denver does, it really does big! --from that crazy airport to the Jefferson County government building in Golden, to the miles of bike trails and parks.

We came to pan for gold. And the gold is YOU, our readers. Our mission is to support you in living a healthy, connected, environmentally-harmonious life, to help you access providers and merchants that you feel good about. You deserve the best mental, physical and spiritual health. Whether it be consulting an intuitive, cleansing your system, holistic dentistry, a hydroponic garden, a health-centered medical professional, attending a class, finding a like-minded support group or spiritual guidance, you will find the best of the best within these pages.

If you don't do something different today, how can you expect anything to change tomorrow?

Just like we are finding our own new beginning, we hope that you find an opportunity for a new beginning every month within the pages of Natural Awakenings.

Looking forward to the future, Doug and Terry
