APRIL NEWSLETTER:

A new season is, indeed, upon us!

Spring: noun, a season of new beginnings, renewal and growth, a chance to start anew. Many astrologists call our Spring Equinox the actual New Year, as everything wakes from its winter slumber, ready to spring forth with excitement and new energy. The return of our birds and a few brave spring flowers are helping to make it feel like the start of something new. At the farm, one of our daughter's mares had a handsome little colt last on Easter weekend. Life is springing forth everywhere, in all its glory. Things are stirring up, pushing through the old leftovers from last year...

On a personal note, I just started a 6-week online course tailored for Projectors (in Human Design). It's as if I've come home to a place where everyone understands my inner workings and my challenges and I'm finding out so much about how I can live even more authentically. The blueprint is amazing! I continue to focus with more clarity on my offerings, and am grateful for everyone who chose to sign up for an Astro Roots Discovery, or to come in for some healing treatments last month.

This month I am offering a new promotion for an aromatherapy treatment specifically formulated to support alignment with your purpose. I will be adding Reiki to help the energy of the oils to flow. This package is specially priced at $40 until the end of the month. Please feel free to contact me for more details or to book your appointment.

Some happy news is that Ralph and I have finally agreed on a name for our home and property, where we enjoy hosting many gatherings. Inspired by the cedar forest below us and the railway that once was there, our location will now be named "Cedar Woods on Station". This is also a reference to Station Street, which is part of our address. I've already gotten used to the sound of "Cedar Woods", and hope that it will be familiar to many when they talk about something they are attending here. Let me know what you think of our name!

Speaking of which, we are launching our new Speakers Series on the afternoon of April 20. We have two separate presentations that will provide our community with lots of information about electroculture, paramagnetics and another on tiny homes and other small living spaces. There will be two 90-minute sessions that will include a Q&A period, with a break in between for light refreshments. A donation basket will be there for your contributions. More information will be available on my website soon, with details about our speakers and the format. Because this first event will be held indoors, seating space is limited, and will be requesting RSVP's to reserve spots. Stay tuned!

Outside, our pond is slowly warming up, but still well below 50 degrees (iykyn), so I am taking advantage of that refreshing temperature to continue cold plunging. ๐Ÿ’ฆ Our next "Huff & Puff" event will be on Saturday, April 13, with breath work, meditation, a dip in the pond, bonfire and pot luck lunch. Our last gathering was very empowering as our participants were encouraged to look within for grounding and resilience. Everyone appreciated the time we spent sharing our intentions and previous experiences, with open hearts. The feeling of support was palpable, and I learned a new word, sangha, which means "community" in Sanskrit. Lots of hugs and deep conversations. Book your spot ASAP, please.

Spring and Summer Festival Season is upon us, yay! Our beautiful Coming Home family now has the opportunity to get their tickets, they go on sale TODAY! ๐Ÿฅณ ( www.cominghomefestival.com/2024-tickets ) Check out the website for the amazing lineup of performers, photos of our previous festivals, and of course, to get your ticket!

And finally, because so many people are interested, I'm sharing that we have one drumming circle lesson night this month, on Friday, April 19.๐Ÿช˜ If you have a djembe and would like to join us, please contact me for further details. (Sometimes there may be a spare djembe, so reach out) There is one more big, exciting and wonderful event that I will be sharing very soon. You'll just have to wait a day or two for that one!

I hope you have found something in this newsletter that has piqued your interest and that you will be able to join us at Cedar Woods for one or more events or healing sessions!

With much love and gratitude, Julie

MARCH NEWSLETTER:

Hello, my friend! It's time to grab something to sip on and catch up with everything I've been up to...and planning for this month!

As many of you know, I've been working hard the last few months, honing in on how I can best serve you. Huge thanks to my coaching group led by the wonderful Kris Long, where I have been able to create a framework for myself, learning how I can provide community, lead others and help them step into a life of joy and ease. I feel so much clarity now, more confident, and so very, flipping excited! As well, learning more about Human Design and astrology is a continuing enlightening area of study for me. The more I learn, the more "aha" moments I have.

The big news I want to share is my brand new "Astro Roots" program, which is all about looking to the stars (via astrology) to discover your roots , and to get a grounded and stable foundation. Once I create a Discovery report for you, it's up to you how you'd like to proceed. Maybe you'd like to have a consultation with me, to get a few more details and more confirmation that you are already everything you need to be. There may be some blocks that are preventing you from truly embodying your true self, in which case we can try aromatherapy (with blends or aromatherapy treatments), with energy healing (Reiki), or maybe you just need to be immersed in a supportive community to really thrive! More details and pricing will be available shortly. In the meantime, you can read why I absolutely knew that this program is exactly what I am meant to be doing right now on my website, www.juliebaumlisberger.com

I am also extremely happy to be hosting a wonderful upcycling โœ‚๏ธ workshop with my dear friend, Nicole Lalonde on Sunday March 10, from 1-4 p;m. She is uber creative and a skilled upcyler, and will be showing us how we can take a well-loved (aka worn or outdated) jacket and create a new item for our Spring wardrobe. You bring the jacket, and we will supply everything else, from trimmings to embroidery floss and buttons, plus some fun patches. Nicole will show us some basic mending and sewing techniques, and there will be a sewing machine available. As the trend to reuse and limit our waste continues, this is a great skill-building workshop, I hope you can join us. This workshop is suitable for novices and experienced seamstresses alike! Class size is limited, RSVP to this email please.

Of course, life isn't all work and no play! In February, Ralph and I hosted our inaugural Wildfire Adventure, with 18 participants. ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงกโ„๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ Our two guides, Ariel Benavidez and Chris (CK) Kelly, helped us navigate through cold and heat, and we supported each other so beautifully! Our limiting beliefs were absolutely shattered in the pond, we feasted on a delicious pot luck meal, and had an incredible day. Our next event is scheduled for Saturday, March 30. Registration will be open very soon, and I suggest you let me know ASAP if you are interested, as it will fill up very quickly again!

I always love supportiing my larger community, and am inviting you to the next Big Beat, hosted by Gary Diggins, on Saturday, March 23, in Guelph. ๐ŸŽท๐Ÿช˜๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽบ๐Ÿ’ƒ We dance (to the Bhadra Collective's music), we drum our djembes (with Tom Wolf), and then we all dream (on our yoga mats while the musicians and a few friends create a soothing soundscape for us to enjoy). Tickets are available for $40, details in the poster.

Finally, although summer is months away, it's time to start thinking about the Coming Home Festival 2024!โ˜ฎ๏ธ We will be hosting this wonderful event for the third year on our beautiful property, and on Friday, March 15, the Submissions Portal opens! We're looking for Artisans, Holistic Practitioners, Small Business Vendors, Volunteers, and Workshop Facilitators! Go to www.cominghomefestival.com to apply.

Phew! There is SO much to look forward to! Again, thank you for your interest and support, as always! I do hope I'll be able to connect with you soon at one of these fun events!

In love and gratitude ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ
