Are you looking for a real-foods based diet, with seasonal, local, organic foods that make your body feel more alive?
Yearning to have healthy meals that are easy to make, affordable & that your whole family enjoys? 
Craving space and time set aside just for you, to remember, reclaim & celebrate your whole self as a woman? 
Come join us for an 8-week series. Enjoy experiential learning about integrative nutrition, while being a part of a nurturing & supportive circle of women. Jalene Salus will facilitate an engaging dialogue about integrative nutrition for women’s overall health and wellness.
We will discuss nutritional concepts such as: understanding primary and secondary foods, essential nourishment for women, exploring a wide range of dietary theories, understanding how to eat intuitively for your body type, living with the seasons & feeding the whole family.  We will enjoy sampling vital greens, easy-to-make healthy snacks & seasonal foods that you can make at home. Experiential learning will be offered to actively embody healthy traditions, mindfulness activities, & self care practices that can truly feed our whole selves!
During the second half of each group, Jalene will help us create a safe and nurturing space to share authentically and feel supported by the loving group of women. This circle we create together will offer space to remember, reclaim & celebrate anew in our whole, authentic selves as women.

Women’s Wellness Group was an enriching & educational experience. In a safe place, I found a place to nurture my body, mind & soul. Sharing the path with other women makes the journey fun, enjoyable & easier to do. I learned lots of good tips about feeding my soul as well as my family”. – Mother in Palo Alto, 2017

Jalene has created a sanctuary of love with peaceful, healing energy. The lessons she brings to us each week are heartfelt, healing and nurturing. I look forward to being surrounded by the loving energy of this circle of beautiful women – connecting with each other and our selves, sharing our stories and learning from Jalene. I have benefitted also from learning about primary and secondary foods. It has been a mind shift for me to really understand the power of primary foods. A new awareness and “awareness” is emerging as I become present with my primary food needs and how essential they are to my wellbeing. ”  – Miriam, 2017
