Yes, today April 22nd is Earth Day! Before I embraced Internet Entrepreneurship I was a professional ‘tree hugger!’ Really it’s true! I’ll post my complete bio here one day but I have my undergrad in Earth Sciences and in Environmental Studies and my Masters of Science in Environmental Health from Tulane University and I’m finishing up my PH.D. from the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan.
Anyway, today i am dedicating my Earth Day to a place i love dearly – Zimbali Retreats www.zimbalijamaica.com This place gets my dedication today as it’s a retreat that’s completely off grid. That means that their electricity is solar powered, their hot water is heated by a solar hot water heater, their water is harvested and filtered rainwater, their drinking water is from a local spring…..amazing!
Most of their food is grown right at the retreat on their organic farm and is often cooked outside on a wood burning fire.
It’s an amazing place and getting back to nature has helped me to clear out negativity, balance my inner self, and focus on some inner healing.
I am truly grateful for this opportunity to address the balance in my own life.
I cannot speak highly enough about this place, the staff and the owners Mark & Alecia.
Now the only problem I had when I went to the retreat for the first time, was that I couldn’t turn off my marketing head… so of course I made the owners shoot some videos that i could upload to their channel!
So watch their new welcome video:
What did you think of the video?
So, if you are suffering from “nature-deficit disorder” – which so many of us computer geeks are, make plans today to find a place like Zimbali Retreats where you can get back to nature!
So tell me, what are you going to do to get back to nature?
