Hi there! I'm very happy to announce a very special "Double Stephanie" giveaway today!
My friend Stephanie Perkinson, an artist + holistic health coach, has developed a beautiful Winter Cleanse online program to help us all get off to an energetic, and radiant start in 2014! Stephanie's lovely 10 day program includes a supportive online community, many beautiful and delicious recipes, plus a field guide and a cookbook to download, all created to nourish and support our bodies.
And the best news is - when you leave a comment here on my blog you will enter our very special Double Stephanie Giveaway with a chance to win a space in both of our Winter courses!
You'll earn even more chances of winning a free spot when you share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and other social media.
Today I'd like to introduce you to Stephanie so that she can share more with us about her exciting program.
Hi Stephanie, please tell us about yourself, your background, and what you do.
Sure thing! I'm a certified holistic health & lifestyle coach and hold a BFA in textile design. I'm also mama to two amazing boys and owner of Wellness by Design. I bring to life e-courses that embrace whole foods, beauty, creativity and nature as vital stepping stones to radiant wellness. I am passionate about teaching women how to live "in-season" and gently guide them back to balance on their plates, in their bodies and around their homes.
I'm delighted about your upcoming Deeply Rooted : The Winter Cleanse online program. Could you please share more about your wonderful program - and tell me, how is a cleanse different than a detox?
I'm so excited to have you along Stephanie, it's going to be so much fun! For me, Deeply Rooted is more than just a cleanse, it's an opportunity to connect with yourself on a deeper level. Your body becomes the teacher as you discover hidden truths behind your cravings, habits and food crutches.
I run 4 cleanses a year, one in Winter, one in Spring, one in Summer and another in Autumn. Each cleanse is unique, focusing on specific areas of the body that need special attention. The menus and support I give changes accordingly as well. For example, during the Winter Cleanse we'll focus on sending love to the kidneys and the adrenal glands. Every day I'll offer up encouragement, tools to enhance your experience, self care tips and a dash of story telling in the daily emails. I'm also very active in our private Facebook group, The Deeply Rooted Society. The women in this group are just about the most fantastic people I know. They inspire me daily.
I think that "cleansing" and "detoxing" are interchangeable at this point. Every person I know runs cleanses and detoxes differently. Some are more restrictive than others, the foods are different, some may require special supplements, the protocols are different and yes, the results are different. While my cleanses are elimination based, I help women focus on all the abundance we have in our lives and on our plates. I believe cleansing can be so much more than dropping a few pounds, Oh and I also make no apologies for making clean eating taste really, really good. I love running cleanses that honor the body with a gentle and effective approach.
When will your Winter Cleanse begin and how can we sign up?
The Winter Cleanse begins Friday, January 24th. That day all the participants will receive their downloadable Cookbook & Trail Guide and gain entrance into the Facebook group if they choose. This way everyone will have plenty of time to prep their spaces, get in a fresh state of mind and shop for what they want to cook. We'll officially begin cleansing on Monday the 27th and travel together for 10 days.
You can sign up here at my website, StephaniePerkinson.com
Thank you Stephanie, I can't wait to get started with your Winter Cleanse! xo
