2 ~ What brought you to Ashland & Southern Oregon area? Let us know what’s been inspiring you these days!
My daughter and I will be relocating to Ashland this summer. She wants to attend Ashland HS and is also very interested in Southern Oregon University. It is the beautiful land, rich culture in theater and other arts, and the desire to live in a more peaceful atmosphere that has drawn our spirits to this area. We hope to network and discover what Ashland has to offer through this site. Can't wait to be a part of the community!
3 ~ What would you love to offer to and share with our community? What do you envision could be a few of the most beneficial things that could happen from actively using this site? Feel free to be outrageous!
I have a lot of experience and information about hospice and palliative care, since that has been my specialty. I also am well read on many topics of spirituality, and I love working with Angels for healing in my practice. I hope to find a wellness center, or other venue where I could continue my practice or serve as a RN consultant or coordinator for health care.
4 ~ Please describe any projects or businesses you'd like to develop, if any? What is your "JOB" (aka "Joy of Being")? What especially delights you?
I am a holistic RN and a Reiki Master practitioner. Co-founded SpiritmovesmeReiki, Inc with a friend and fellow practitioner this year here in my current city of Philadelphia. I am looking forward to meeting other like minded people who would enjoy discussing or having a Reiki session.
5 ~ Which intriguing concepts, local endeavors, links, music, art, websites, books, films, inventions have you been exploring?
My daughter is an aspiring actress, so she has exposed me to a lot of theater and movies. She prefers Classic Hollywood, as do I..Bette Davis, Norma Shearer, Cary Grant and Humphrey Bogart. Her all time favorite is Meryl Streep with Susan Sarandon as a close second :-)
As for myself, I love to read...I think I absorb books, I go through them so quickly! I have so many favorite authors, it would take awhile to name them...I do tend to prefer books on spirituality, revisionist history, and "chick lit". Would be great to find a book club, and I'd love to learn about the local bookstores!
~Looks like you are doing good on the networking Heather. As you are starting before even moving here. This site has a great newsletter about all the happenings going on around town. The food coop also has a newletter.
~Aloha Heather, welcome to Ashland's loving healing energy. I have been here a year and love the people and the way they share their light. My daughter is an art major at SOU and loves it also. It is a bit cold here for me (after 21 years in Hawaii), but you will probably call it mild weather. :)

Paros – the lovely island in Greece’s Cycladic region – is famous for its blue-and-white painted architecture, captivating coasts, and turquoise seas. Soon, it will be known for its environmental standards as well. It has been selected to represent a future free of plastic pollution and waste.
The President's comments come after Thunberg hammered President Trump for leaving the Paris Climate Accord. The speech by the far-left climate activist was made at the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland.
There are bipartisan bills in Congress that we could pass right now to ensure the United States remains a global leader in emissions reduction, economic productivity, and clean energy production, all at once.”
That’s what Energy and Commerce Republican Leader Greg Walden (R-OR) said in September, calling on Democrats to work with Republicans on commonsense, bipartisan solutions to protect the environment and our economy.
The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Trump said the United States is joining the initiative.
“We’re committed to conserving the majesty of God’s creation and the natural beauty of our world,” Trump said.
America “will continue to show strong leadership in restoring, growing, and better managing our trees and our forests,” he added, drawing applause.
The One Trillion Trees Initiative was announced during the forum. It encourages countries to plant trees as part of the effort to combat climate change. The goal is to plant 1 trillion trees by 2050.
Ecologist Dr. Thomas Crowther told the forum last year that humans should plant 1.2 trillion trees to cancel out the past decade of CO2 emissions.
Human activities are behind the extinction crisis. Commercial agriculture, timber extraction, and infrastructure development are causing habitat loss and our reliance on fossil fuels is a major contributor to climate change.
Public corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Professors Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg published Climate Change, Capitalism and Corporations last fall, arguing that businesses are locked in a cycle of exploiting the world's resources in ever more creative ways.
