About

-- Grandmother, quoted by Lynn Andrews says, "Believe In Magic!" "... for magic to happen in your life, you must believe in magic." Magic is the creation of possibility, and with your help, we brought to life the possibility of what we can do together to develop a supportive sustainable wellness community for health and wellness in mind, body, and spirit .
