elcome to the seventh issue of Teton Spirit! Seven has always been considered a lucky number—a number associated with vision and inspiration—and this issue is full of articles to spark you into healthy and inspired ways of being. Teton Spirit was created to celebrate the way the human experience is an integration of body, mind and spirit. We are not only our physical form, but also the thoughts we generate and the breath of our souls’ deepest desires. We are all three components—unified. You will notice that the articles in this issue of Teton Spirit share the common theme of “embodiment.” Embodiment is about simultaneously experiencing all components of the self within the physical form. Stripping things down to the basics and getting in touch with and honoring the fundamental nature of your life experience—whether it’s in your daily habits, the food you eat, or your perspective on life—is at the root of embodying all of who you are. 21st century life is inundated with so many distractions, often we forget to attend to the totality—the integrated body, mind and spirit—of our being. “The Evolution of Spirit” found on page 34, is my personal story of embodying my passion for raising awareness about the importance of the spiritual side of life. In Jackson Hole, and most of America frankly, there has always been conscious focus on the importance of physical health and strength as well as on education and the value of conscious thought. But independent inspired living (as different from practicing traditional religion) has had less emphasis. I sensed in myself and my friends, as well as by witnessing the immense national growth of depression and addiction over the years, that things were out of balance. For me, the time had come to create a space and a vehicle that would bring attention to

POETRY

Nothing but the Soul I Wear The self I found in that empty space Where there was just me and God And me experiencing me A me I needed to rediscover Because I was empty I no longer knew myself When God and I finished talking All that was left was He I arose a blank slate, at peace Free and vulnerable feeling new and clean Asking new questions seeing with new eyes I ordered ice-cream for dessert because I was a child I talked openly with a stranger In a distant place I possessed no shield The stranger was drawn to me and misunderstood I told him I had become empty in the presence of God We said good-bye and hugged I slept well and when dawn approached I traveled far There’s always more to learn and accept Yet I will never forget the moment when I released everything Left all and gained all In that peaceful empty place Where I met God with nothing but the soul I wear

ou talk to anyone who does yoga, and they will tell you it is a practice. In the best of cases it is a practice for life. Studies have shown that regular yoga asana practice over a long period of time supports flexibility and strength, peace of mind, and balance of emotions. But what does it really mean to bring yoga into your life? And even more, what makes this practice something that you return to as part of your routine day after day, year after year? I began practicing yoga when I was 23 and in college. At that time in 1997, I didn’t even know what yoga was, but I needed to take a class outside of my discipline. I was told it was an easy A, so I gave it a shot. I was instantly taken— the pain from scoliosis that I had lived

with for many years dissipated. I realized that, for the first time in my life, I had some control over how my body felt. I had experienced pain in my body for so many years: I thought that I would feel that way for the rest of my life. To realize that I had the power to make myself feel better was intoxicating and kept me coming back for more. Needless to say, there are as many different stages of yoga practice as there are practitioners, and whatever age one starts practicing yoga is the perfect time for every individual. But in a desire to celebrate the idea of yoga for life, I have interviewed a number of Jackson Hole yogis varying in age, from some of our youngest residents upward, to get a perspective on what brought them to yoga and what has made them stay.

PIPER COX, AGE 6 Piper’s first visit to a yoga studio was when she was three months old. Her mom, Carter Cox, took her to “Mommy and Me” yoga classes. At eighteen months, Piper got on Carter’s mat with her while she was practicing and did poses with her. Eventually Piper requested her own mat. She practiced online yoga classes with her mom, and she chose the classes herself. When Piper turned 6, Carter recognized the next step would be for Piper to go to an actual yoga class and thought they would go together. But Piper, ever independent, wanted to go by herself. Carter found a class that was just for kids at Inversion Yoga—Piper was thrilled. Carter has noticed that by going to classes by herself, Piper is finding a sense of accomplishment as she works toward certain poses on her own. She loves to come home and show her family her progress. Another benefit that Carter has noticed is that Piper, a naturally fiery child, is more “calm and aware” of her actions since practicing yoga. When I asked her how daughter’s relationship to yoga has changed over time, Carter said that Piper has made it a part of her young life, like going to school or brushing her teeth. So much so that when Piper told her mom she “was going to work” and her mom asked her where “work” was, Piper matter of factly said “yoga.” BRAD LUND, AGE 26 Brad started practicing yoga two years ago. He was having a tough time emotionally and was open to trying anything that would help. When someone suggested yoga, he decided to try it out at a nearby community center. He took to it right away

Mark Llinares, Age 52 When did you start practicing yoga? I started yoga at Akasha at 49. I had been to a couple of classes 10 years before that but it didn’t stick. How often do you practice? Typically twice a week, sometimes three times. Once a week is not enough. What has yoga done for your life? I feel better in my body. Sometimes when I walk out of class I can really notice a shift in how I feel, but it doesn’t happen every time.

and started going once a week. In the summer of 2014, he moved to Jackson Hole and began practicing at a Akasha Yoga studio. When Brad’s job got more demanding and he couldn’t go to classes as consistently as he had been, he quickly noticed that on the days he didn’t do yoga, he was grumpy. “People at work noticed a difference.” He began a home practice for the days he worked. When I asked him what has changed most for him since doing yoga, he said “I’m more interested in the process of life than in showing the world results. I guess you could say I’m stronger inside myself.” He also has gotten physically stronger and is less injury prone. For Brad, yoga is less about the poses and more about feeling better emotionally and mentally. And as his practice evolves, yoga is helping him figure out who he is and the direction he wants to go in life. ADI AMAR, AGE 36 Adi, owner of the Teton Yoga Shala, began her yoga journey when she was 15 with a Hatha class. Because Adi’s story is extensive and could take up this entire article, we’ll start when she went to college and started frequenting an Ashtanga Vinyasa studio in her neighborhood. At that time, she was more attracted to the physicality of Ashtanga yoga than in finding emotional release from her practice, as she had when she was younger. But, over time, her ambition to achieve the most aggressive poses faded. This switch of concentration helped her when she had a skiing injury and had to have knee surgery in 2007. For the first month after her operation, she was immobilized, which gave her the opportunity to go deeper into meditation. Her sitting practice was feeding her soul, but her knee wasn’t getting better, which

How has your practice shifted over time? I started yoga with the goal to be able to touch my toes with straight legs; it’s still touch and go with that one. However, I find the more the years pass, I am starting to think less about those kind of goals. Now I think about things like breathing, alignment and the more subtle aspects. I may add­—this is where a good instructor is key for me. I try and listen to what they say during class to enable me to attempt to get the most benefit from the hour that my body will allow.


Missy Falcey, Age 64 When did you start practicing yoga? I had a brief run at yoga in my early twenties. The concept was intriguing and the intersection with the remnants of the counterculture was appealing, but I really wasn’t ready for it. My lasting passion for yoga ignited about 10 years ago. How often do you practice? I practice about five times a week. Most of my asana takes place in classes because I love the teaching and my fellow yogis. Also, I’m enjoying my home practice more and more. What has yoga done for your life? On a physical level, I have so much more strength and bal-

was frustrating. Then as fate would have it, she met a yoga teacher who taught her how to benefit from active yoga despite the physical limitations of her injury. Eddie Modestini introduced Adi to simple poses that she could focus on with a high amount of attention and precision. As time went on her knee was rehabilitated and she was able to return to a more varied practice. Then, at 34, Adi began having a tough time getting pregnant. She asked her now mentor, Eddie, for advice. He told her that she needed to stop practicing so intensely. Adi once again turned her focus to meditation and practiced simple poses. Not long after taking this more restorative approach, she became pregnant. Adi found yoga and meditation helped stabilize her body and mind both before and after her pregnancy. After the birth of her son, Matteo, Adi experienced postpartum depression. With her mom there to help with the baby, Adi was able to carve out the much needed time to resume a meditation practice. She cultivated what she calls “a practice for her nervous system” which involved simple asanas done with attention to her breath while saying positive affirmations. She sang yoga mantras (sacred sounds in the form of a syllable, word, prayer, or phrase usually in Sanskrit) as a way to practice. Through these methods, her depression lifted and she was able to engage fully with life again, which meant being a full time mother with some yoga thrown in when time allowed. Eventually though, she started to question her own studentship because of these shorter practices. She said she felt “an internal pressure” to get back to her old way of practicing. She expressed this distress to her mom, who replied “Matteo is your yoga practice.” At that moment Adi asked herself, “If I’m not on the mat, am I really practicing?” Her answer was “YES!” Much of yoga is an act of learning

ance. The breath that infuses my asana practice transforms the merely physical into a kind of presence that is very much like meditation. My life and perspective on living has been tremendously enhanced. More calm, more joy, more trust, more community. How has your practice shifted over time? I am still tempted to explore new poses, but now I am finding a new appreciation for cruising my boundaries and playing more comfortably within my edge. Instead of getting crazy, refining the basics offers me plenty of challenge. Ultimately, the point is to improve physically, mentally and spiritually and my body gives me lots of feedback... if I’m willing to listen.

to be present, and nowhere is that discipline better put to practice than with a baby. So Adi let go of the pressure she was putting on herself and made being present with her son her off-the-mat yoga practice. Her ability to be “in the now” with Matteo gave her a new found gratitude for yoga and all it had taught her. After all what was all her practice for, if not to be present with those she loved most? Now that Matteo is a year and half, her practice is yet again transforming. She is able to have longer asana practices, sometimes even up to two hours. And she is more grateful than ever to continue to practice yoga, whatever form that it might take. JOAN LAPHAM, AGE 64 Joan is a yoga teacher and personal trainer. She started getting interested in yoga in the 1990’s to help with the tightness in her body caused by her various athletic pursuits. Initially, she chose a more rigorous Vinyasa style which reflected her intense, active lifestyle. Her yoga practice was sporadic until 2003 when she went through a big life transition. Inspired to go deeper into her study of yoga, she decided to get certified as a teacher. Her 200 hours of training were based primarily on learning yoga postures and poses, but they also exposed her to yoga principles and philosophy. Intrigued, she began to study other aspects of yoga, which eventually led her to do another, more comprehensive, teacher training in 2010. This training pushed Joan to her physical limits, and gave her further insight into how she needed to move forward. “I realized at 59 years old that I needed to find my own way, that it was ok not to push,”

ADI AMAR AND SON MATTEO


she said. “It was a turning point for me to explore more of my inner landscape.” As her understanding of yoga expanded, she saw how yoga could be practiced in everyday life, not just in the studio. She said now, her yoga also involves “being in service, insight and connection” to others. Joan practices her asanas in classes and has a home practice that fits into what else is happening in her life. Sometimes that means a half hour yoga practice, and at other times 5 minutes may be all she has time for. Because Joan infuses yoga into everything that she does, she no longer measures her progress by how minutes are spent on her mat or by what poses she can or cannot do. She says, “Now my biggest goal in yoga, and in life in general, is to be loving to myself.” Each of these local yogis reinforce what I have experienced in my own yoga practice: that yoga has the ability to meet us wherever we are in life. I noticed at 35, the vigorous practice I had for over a decade was getting harder to maintain. As my hormones began to change, I didn’t want to do asanas. Then my back seized and all efforts to soldier on in my poses came to a halt. I stopped practicing asana and focused on what would best serve my body at that time— meditation. I realized the importance of listening to my body and, after a month, I was able to introduce a restorative practice. Curious about the changes I had been experienced, I researched and found that there were many other female practitioners like myself whose yoga practices evolved as their bodies did. The more I educated myself, the more I realized that I needed to use my asana practice as a means of supporting my life, rather than pushing through it. I now practice yoga asana as a way to prepare my body for my morning meditation and to balance out the other physical activities I enjoy. Like so many others, I have found yoga to be one of the most wonderful ways to nourish myself; it is something to practice at all ages.

YOGA BASICS YOGA

Yoga come from the Sanskrit root “Yuj” meaning “to Yoke,” yoking or uniting the mind, body and breath—the individual spirit to the universal spirit. Yoga is an ancient Indian system for attaining bodily and mental control and well-being. Over the thousands of years yoga has existed, it has developed into many different styles and lineages.

ASANA

A pose or posture in yoga. The literal meaning is “seat.” Yoga postures are practiced to prepare the body and mind for sitting, so the body is comfortable and alert for the more introspective practice of breathing (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana).

PRANA Quinn Liljestrom, Age 16 When did you start practicing yoga? I started practicing yoga as a kid, but I got more seriously into my practice at age 13. How often do you practice? I practice asana 1-3 hours daily. What has yoga done for your life? Since the moment I discovered

it, I knew that yoga would be a practice I would be involved in for the rest of my life. I honestly cannot list all of the amazing benefits that arise through yoga. Self acceptance and love, a calm and positive outlook on life, physical and mental strength. These are all things that yoga has brought to me.

“Pra” means to bring forth; “Na” means life in existence. The practice of yoga is based upon integrating Prana, “Universal Life Force” or “Cosmic Vibration” with the human body through breathing, movement, poses and meditation. Where there is mobility and stability combined there is Prana.

NAMASTE

A Hindu greeting meaning: My soul honors your soul. The light within me honors the light within you. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, we are one.

BODY FITNESS

Jeanne Barash, Age 73 When did you start practicing yoga? Nine years ago, a friend gifted me a private session that changed my life. I had been working out at health clubs for years. I had taken all kinds of classes. I was in pretty good shape but I had never done anything like it. I was strong but not flexible. Just about everyone in the class was (and still is) decades younger than me. Most of the instructors were/are younger than my kids. What I quickly learned, however, is that age doesn’t matter in yoga—not to the instructor, nor to the person practicing next to you. It doesn’t matter if I need to use a

block in triangle pose. Or if I’m too scared to do a handstand. It just doesn’t matter. There is no judgement. How often do you practice? I go to class twice a week. On the off days, I practice at home. My practice has shifted. I no longer feel the need to push myself into doing poses that scare me. This old body has served me well. These days, I’m trying really hard to pay attention to what it’s telling me. What has yoga done for your life? It has taught me about staying present, about being with my breath and about being “open to grace.” What a gift.

STYLES OF YOGA HATHA

ment to alignment principles with a playful spirit. Anusara is based on Tantric philosophy and teaches to open your heart and connect to the divine in yourself and in others.

Of the eight key principles that make up the comprehensive philosophy and practice of yoga, Hatha focuses on the physical postures, or asanas. Today and especially in the United States, we refer to this form of physical exercise as simply “yoga.”

BIKRAM/HOT

Bikram is a relatively new style of yoga known for using rooms heated to 95-100 degrees and focusing on a sequence of 26 poses (different from the Ashtanga series). Hot Yoga uses artificially heated rooms as well but does not abide by the regimented series of Bikram.

VINYASA

Vinyasa is the Sanskrit word for “flow” and is a very physically active form of yoga that focuses on movement and breath. The literal translation of Vinyasa is to “place in a special way,” thus Vinyasa yoga postures are linked with the breath and systematically and intelligently sequenced for a therapeutic effect.

ASHTANGA

Ashtanga is a very exact system of yoga. It is a rigorous style and, like Vinyasa, it focuses on movement and breath, but it follows a very specific progressive sequence of postures that a practitioner works through over time.

IYENGAR

Iyengar is known for precise body alignment and promotes strength, flexibility, endurance and balance. Poses are generally held longer and props are often used to support proper alignment.

Anusara is a more recent form of yoga, established in 1997 by American John Friend. It combines a commit-

KUNDALINI

Kundalini yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on awakening the energy at the base of the spine and drawing it upward through the chakras toward the crown of the head, and ultimately to enlightenment. Chanting, breathing exercises, as well as physical postures are integrated into Kundalini practice.

EAT REAL FOOD

If unprocessed eating boiled down into one rule, it would be to eat real food. It really can be simple if you apply this edict to just two areas. First, eat as many whole, fresh foods as possible. Next, look closely at the label of any food that comes in a package and make choices to eliminate unhealthy artificial ingredients, preservatives and additives. Or as Michael Pollan famously wrote in his seminal book In Defense of Food, “Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.” “Eating unprocessed is a return back to how we used to eat before food companies started adding unnatural ingredients into our food. The reason it’s important is because people are finding that these additives are causing health issues over time,” says Brieger. In some ways your body can be like a car. Without the right type of fuel and oil, your car can run all right for a while, but eventually it will break down. Your body also needs the right nutrients to run well. If you’re eating food that is devoid of nutrients, even if you feel full, your body is in a constant state of hunger for those missing nutrients. This leads many people to binge and gain weight. Once you get used to eating real food, your body feels naturally full and satisfied, sometimes leading to weight loss. After eating better for, at a minimum, several months, Brieger finds that her clients usually feel more energy because they’re getting the nutrients their bodies need. Digestive issues such as bloating often go away and all that whole food fiber results in better elimination. Skin issues like acne clear up or the skin starts to look more radiant. As the immune system strengthens, they catch fewer colds and flu. Plus, there’s the benefit of improved taste. Preparing foods from scratch can bring out natural flavors more fully, and fresh foods are often packed with powerful tastes. Imagine a ripe raspberry picked straight from the bush or greens harvested from a backyard garden. The proof is right there in your taste buds.

READ YOUR LABELS

UNPROCESSED EATING IS ABOUT ENJOYING A RAINBOW OF FRESH AND NATURAL INGREDIENTS.

A good way to start paying attention to food processing is simply reading and understanding the ingredient labels on the foods we do buy. Most of us are still going to eat processed foods; think of salt, for instance. Making good choices about them is important. The rule of thumb is you should be able to recognize all ingredients as a food. If there’s an ingredient you don’t know,

search it. For instance, when a label lists natural flavors it might really be added monosodium glutamate (MSG), which Brieger says may cause headaches, digestive problems and allergic reactions in some people. Smart phones can be an advantage; there are even apps like Chemical Cuisine—designed by the Center for Alicia Brieger heads up a team of private chefs creating decadent unprocessed foods at Unprocessed Kitchen with locations in Jackson and Maui.

Science in the Public Interest—to help you identify food additives and what they’re used for. Once you have the information, you can decide if you’re personally comfortable eating it. “If you just take two hours on a single day at the grocery and research all of the foods or brands that you eat, it then becomes faster and more automatic to shop for your food,” says Brieger.

EAT A RAINBOW OF FRESH VEGETABLES AND FRUITS

Aiming for a wide variety of veggies in different colors offers your body the widest variety of nutrients and antioxidants. Don’t worry about what each vegetable or fruit does for your body, too much detail can be stressful. Simply shop for different fruits and vegetables every week, and you will naturally get all the nutrients that you need. If you fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, even at breakfast, you’ll also get a healthy amount.

Eat fresh produce when and if possible. Let’s go back to orange juice. The difference between freshsqueezed versus carton orange juice can be huge. Vitamin C is sensitive to light and heat, so as soon as you cut an orange open, it starts to disappear. You can also tell that the nutrients and enzymes are still intact, because fresh juice tastes delicious. In the mountains we can’t always access the freshest produce, but summer farmers’ markets and farm shares provide a wonderful opportunity to get delicious, nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables close to their source. And you get to support your local farmer and community. (See farmers’ market tips in the sidebar p.23.) When you do shop at the grocery store, it’s best to purchase organic produce as much as your budget allows. Of course, it’s difficult to make every item organic, especially if you’re on a budget. The best approach is to


prioritize. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) at www.ewg.org can be a helpful resource. Every year the organization updates a “Dirty Dozen” list of fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide load and a Clean 15 list featuring the produce with the lowest amount of pesticides. If you eat items on the Dirty Dozen list, it is recommended that you buy them certified organic. The EWG also offers a Dirty Dozen app that helps you check produce in the store. You can save money by purchasing conventionally grown foods on the Clean 15 list.

KNOW THY MEAT SOURCE

When it comes to meats, it’s especially important to know the source. Even if it feels a little uncomfortable, ask questions and don’t just buy anything. Whatever an animal eats or is injected with is what you eat. If a farmed fish consumed feces due to its overcrowded conditions, it will eventually become part of you. Brieger says it’s important not to drive yourself crazy but to have enough knowledge. The most important things to ask are: where did the meat come from? How was it raised? What did it eat? Were hormones or antibiotics used? Just answering these questions can help you make healthier meat choices.

SEEK OUT WHOLE GRAINS

Work as many whole grains into your diet as possible. There is a big difference in the amount and quality of nutrients found in a wheat berry versus a slice of bread. Some examples of whole grains that can be easily prepared and taste wonderful are brown rice, quinoa, buckwheat, oats, faro and wheat berries. We might not realize it, but white rice is no longer a whole grain because the hull, the bran and endoderm has been removed. What remains is just the starchy part of the rice, and left without the protein, fiber and other healthy parts of the grain.

DO DAIRY ORGANICALLY

When it comes to dairy, it pays to make sure it’s organic. As with meat, if the animals’ feed was genetically modified (GMO) or contained hormones and antibiotics, then that’s what you’re eating, too. Dairy labeled as USDA Organic, however, must have been raised using 100% organic feed without antibiotics or growth hormones. GMO research is a highly opinionated field, but Brieger says that from a common-sense standpoint your body knows how to process and use real food. However, when you start making changes to its genetic make-up, your body may not know what to do with it. A good example of this is partiallyhydrogenated oil, which is not easily processed by your body and may, among other things, raise cholesterol. Brieger says it makes sense to be cautious, because once you damage your body, it’s hard to undo.

COOK IT UP

If you’re going to eat unprocessed, you’re going to have to cook. Foods made from scratch don’t have to be expensive and time consuming. Whether you’re a single man or a mom juggling work and family, trying to feed yourself well can be very simple. She suggests a simple meal for when you’re tired or busy. Fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables, then add a whole grain and protein. At the end, treat yourself to dark chocolate. “Let’s say you can chop up some vegetables in about five minutes and set them on to cook, then you can prepare a meat and rice. You could have dinner on the table in 30 mintues,” she says. Eating unprocessed food is a journey where it’s important to be kind to yourself and make changes slowly over time. Simple foods can be delicious and satisfy your body as well as your taste buds. As Brieger says, “At the end of the day, our health is one of the most valuable things we have.”

FARMERS MARKET TIPS Summer farmers markets are a great way to find unprocessed foods close to their source, and to support your local community. >> Pick up a new vegetable once a week. If the red food you always eat is a tomato, you’re not really getting a variety of nutrients. >> Talk to a farmer. If you don’t know something about a new food, ask the farmer selling it. They have a wealth of knowledge and good preparation ideas. >> Eat seasonally. Shopping at the Farmer’s Market simplifies this process, because most foods have just come from harvest.

We all know that exercise is good for us. Walking is one of the best activities we can do. We evolved to walk, to stand upright, to evenly weight our feet. Walking is gentle on our skeleton and something that we can do for miles. It’s the efficient human mode of travel. According to the Mayo Clinic, walking helps us maintain our weight, manage or prevent various conditions including type II diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure. It strengthens our bones and muscles, improves balance and coordination and can improve our moods. Walking is an activity that you can do anywhere, alone or with friends, and here in the Tetons the number of beautiful and varied trails are extraordinary. Change up your walks regularly so your body and movement change, because the same walk, every day, can have negative effects. Walking encourages deep breathing, especially through increased pace or elevation gain. As you breathe, you fill yourself with oxygen, massage your cells, honor your body and say “yes” to health and vitality. Consciously focusing on your breath means tapping into your life force energy. Make your

breath an exploration. Instead of breathing, yield to your breath: let your body be breathed as you move. Relax and be calm and regular in your gait. Have integrity with your breath: settle into your feet and lengthen your torso to reach your body to the sky. Let life flow through you. For over 27 years, I have been guiding people on the trails through my business, The Hole Hiking Experience. I have made it my mission to enhance the hiking experience by creating a greater connection to nature by offering education and insight. Being aware of the flora and fauna and history of the region are fundamental. Becoming mindful makes the experience even more valuable and fulfilling. I encourage my clients to be present with the simple activity of walking—step, breathe, step, breathe. Slowing down enlivens the senses and focus and leads from one ah-ha moment to the next. Be present with your breath, the sensation of your foot on the trail. Allow the sounds of nature to calm your mind. Stay with the activity so you don’t get lost in your mind’s thoughts and stories. Step outdoors and try it. Let nature support you!

Perspective for Life-Long Success BY MONICA FEDRIGO ILLUSTRATIONS BY KELLY HALPIN 26 |

www.tetonspirit.com

“Jackson is Neverland.” “You can’t have a ‘real’ life in Jackson.” “I’m thinking of moving away to find better opportunities.” If you’ve lived in Jackson Hole for long, you have heard people say these things. Why is it a common idea for people to express the idea that the options here are not “real life”? Why do people say one must choose between success with career and “being a grown up” versus the quality of life offered in the Tetons? Is there truth behind this view? Is it possible to enjoy a thriving career and enjoy the lifestyle you want here?


Visitors and non-residents sometimes compare living in Jackson to Peter Pan’s “Neverland,” a place rooted more in fun and less in reality, a place that seems too similar to vacation to be considered anything else. But can this place that gives us so much joy be ‘”real life?” Yes! Jackson is so much more than “Neverland;” it is a vibrant, interesting, evolving community, where success and fulfillment can be found—by those who are looking. Many of us grew up with ideas of what ‘success’ looks like, and Jackson Hole is not a place where those things fit the image of what we were exposed to prior to living in the Tetons. Family and friends who live in different places in the country may have this limited perspective. If Jackson Hole is where we feel most in tune with ourselves, isn’t that the ideal place to realize our full potential in all aspects of a successful life? And if we are constantly inspired by our surroundings—the pristine lakes of the national park and the postcardperfect Teton peaks—don’t we owe it to ourselves to stop holding onto this mindset that only holds us back. “We have this stereotypical idea of what it means to be successful in life,” says local resident Tyler Babcock, “A career that pays a certain amount, a house, kids. We say that we don’t subscribe to these stereotypes, but when it comes down to it we have a really hard time getting past those ideas.” Jamie Dunphy voices a similar opinion. “People imagine a steady paycheck with a retirement fund. The idea stems from social shaping, and it’s hard for people to think outside of that box. If you examine these ideas, you realize the definition of “real life,” or “being an adult” can be different for many people.” “By moving here at all, you’ve already done something that friends and family on the East coast or a variety of places see as impossible or at least far from the mainstream,” says Wilson resident Jamie Bemis. When we look past traditional views, are there truly plentiful opportunities for success with career and other aspects of life? What is the reality of our options

here in Jackson? “We’re in this moment where entrepreneurs are really valued. We’re also in this moment with technology allowing you to possibly have clients anywhere in the world and do a good job for them,” says local attorney Alex Freeburg. “It’s a different set of opportunities, and you can certainly do well. I meet so many people who are really interesting and exciting who have started a small business and grown it.”

creating new business endeavors as well as working for unique companies. “At Silicon Couloir, our mission is to nurture entrepreneurship in the greater Teton area. We have helped create an ecosystem that entrepreneurs need to thrive. There are great challenges to building a business here, just as there are great challenges to building a business anywhere. We hold Chance Meetings monthly, pitch day each summer and host the Start-Up Institute.

If Jackson Hole is where we feel most in tune with ourselves, isn’t that the ideal place to realize our full potential in all aspects of a successful life? Freeburg adds, “In some cases people construct a way to excuse themselves or let themselves off the hook. “If I lived in a city, I would have a corporate job, but I can’t be successful because there’s not the opportunity here’. You can create success wherever you are, what’s more important is your mindset.” Liza Millet, co-founder of Silicon Couloir and the Start-Up Institute, two entrepreneurial support programs based here in Jackson Hole, agrees that many local opportunities exist for both

We connect people with opportunities. Finding success, no matter where you live, takes time, effort, and creativity. You need to network, and be really diligent and creative.” There is certainly work involved to create a successful niche for yourself here, however it takes work to do so in any location. Plus Jackson Hole offers opportunities and resources that are unique to the area. It’s the birthplace of Stio, Give’r, TGR, Yellowberry, and too many unique local businesses and organizations to name. This is a

community filled with passionate and creative inhabitants. So if we have opportunities right here, how can we release any views of limitations? How can we accomplish a change in perspective, to clearly see those opportunities? How can we make the most of our lives in the place

that inspires our soul? Seeking out new ways of measuring success and being engaged is the first step toward expanding our outlook. “For myself, it took moving away, but it doesn’t have to come to that extreme,” Bemis notes, “Changing your mindset, your views, can happen here.

Challenge yourself by trying something new. There are communities within the Jackson community. Even if you just think in terms of activities, communities based around skiing, yoga, fly fishing, every activity. You can change so many things, your schedule or daily routine, go to events you have not attended before at the library or the museum, or the Center for the Arts, volunteer in the community.” Jackson offers countless options, many that exist not despite of our location and unique community but because of it. The only thing that is limited is how we choose to view a complete and fulfilling life. Once we shift our perspective towards seeking out and embracing new opportunities, we can take action to create endless possibilities for success. Jackson is so much more than “Neverland” and so much greater than a temporary vacation from reality. It is a vibrant, interesting, evolving community, where success and fulfillment can be found— by those who are looking.

o you eat well, exercise—or try to—and still struggle with food, weight and body image? Do you have trouble with overeating, emotional eating, fatigue, mood, digestive concerns, maintaining or losing weight, or with other eating challenges? If so, you are likely missing out on a critical piece of nutrition. When you limit your focus to what to eat and how to move, you are only tapping into half your calorie burning potential. When it comes to successful nutrition and feeling good about your body, it may be time for a new approach. As Albert Einstein once said, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

MIND MINDSET

“The first step to becoming a more peaceful person is to have the humility to admit that, in most cases, you’re creating your own emergencies...It’s helpful to keep reminding yourself and repeating the sentence ‘Life isn’t an emergency.’” ~ Richard Carlson Your mindset is the missing piece. To reach 100% of your calorie burning potential, you must explore “who you are as an eater.” Everything that makes you uniquely you creates the eater that is uniquely you: your thoughts, beliefs, emotional state and how you are living your life. This is an essential, and mostly overlooked component, of metabolic functioning. We can change our metabolism without changing our food or exercise. How? When we bring attention to our mindset and personal growth, we catalyze change in our biology to lighten up both mentally and physically. Marc David, of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, refers to Metabolism as the “sum total of all the chemical reactions in the body, plus the sum total of all our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and experiences.”

Let’s explore three strategies to positively impact your mindset and begin taking advantage of your full calorie burning potential so you can bring more relaxation, awareness and pleasure into your eating… and into your life! THE MINDSET OF RELAXATION Are you a stressed eater or a relaxed eater? When we are relaxed, we are in the ideal state for optimal absorption and assimilation of nutrients and calorie burning potential. Yet most of us are living under the opposite mindset: chronic low-level stress day after day. And despite

30 |

www.tetonspirit.com

eating “well” and exercising, we may struggle to maintain our health. Our body’s Physiologic Stress Response is an autonomic action to slow down our metabolism. The human body is designed to react to stress by protecting us and producing cortisol, the stress hormone, which shunts blood away from our mid-section and into our limbs so that we can escape danger—whether it’s real or perceived (by your thoughts). Under this survival-based response, the body stores fat, weight and reduces digestion. What can cause the physiologic stress response to turn on in our daily life? • living a chaotic life, as if life is an emergency • worrying about food (good vs. bad) and weight, every single day • talking negatively about your own body or your “lack of self-control” • restricting calories • exercising excessively • challenging relationships, career, finances How can we turn it off? • Slow down to slim down—both while eating and in how you live your life. When we are relaxed, our appetite is naturally regulated. Breathe. • Take the time to notice what’s “weighing on” you in life and begin to address it. • Stop skipping meals or eating meals at erratic times. The body loves rhythm. It’s relaxing. • Notice where you are leaking energy. Learn to say no. Create more space to say “yes” to yourself, your own self-care and get your personal power back. Stop putting everybody and everything else before your nourishment —mentally and physically. THE MINDSET OF AWARENESS Are you a distracted or an attentive eater? When we are “awake at the plate” and giving full awareness to our meals, we are in the ideal state for natural appetite regulation, optimal absorption and assimilation of nutrients and calorie burning potential. Once again, our body is hardwired to respond to our experiences. Cephalic Phase Digestive Response shows that digestion begins in the mind. It’s the pleasures of taste, aroma, satisfaction, and visual stimulation that we get from a meal. If you are a fast, distracted or stressed eater, you miss out on the 30-40% of total digestive response, which comes from giving full awareness to what you are eating. Both your brain and your gut connect to “register” that you’ve eaten. For many, it is our lack of awareness that has created what we believe to be an eating challenge. When we aren’t


paying attention, we may “over-eat” or suffer from digestive distress. This is all too common in the busy world we live in. Becoming mindful of our dining experience and eating only what our body needs are keys to the proper absorption of nutrients. How to be awake at the plate: • Give full attention to your meal times. Stop multitasking: eating and driving, eating and working, eating and watching TV. • Instead of worrying about portion sizes, become a mindful eater. Focus on slowing down, relaxing, chewing fully and noticing the taste, aroma and pleasure that you get from a meal. • Make saying “grace” and giving gratitude for your meals an everyday habit, not just before your Thanksgiving dinner. THE MINDSET OF PLEASURE Are you a pleasurable eater or stressed eater? A state of mind filled with pleasure and joy is the ideal state for optimal absorption and assimilation of nutrients and calorie burning potential. A lacking mindset produces a physiologic stress response. When we are not experiencing pleasure, comfort, and love in our lives, we are more prone to fill this emotional void with food. We may crave, overeat or feel like we are emotional eaters. This may make us believe that we have an eating challenge when in fact we need more

vitamin P (Pleasure!) in our lives. Food can be a symbolic substitute for joy. Most of us learned in infancy to equate food with love, comfort, and connection. As babies, we were held and fed, held and loved, held and comforted. Thus food = love and comfort. So it’s natural to go to food to fill up an emotional void. Perhaps you turn to food when you are bored, anxious or feeling down. If so, it is time to explore your inner psyche and address the emotional deficiencies you are feeling in your life. When we lighten up in our mindset, we will lighten our body.

“Instead of focusing on what to eat, first teach yourself how to eat.” ~Marc David, Institute for the Psychology of Eating Mind Body Nutrition shows us that there is much more to reaching our full calorie burning potential. When we tap into the quality of our mindset and who we are as eaters, we are liberated from feeling like food and exercise are our only saviors to maintaining or attaining a healthy weight. We can let go of dieting and deprivation. We can let go of strict meal plans. We can let go of success merely as pounds lost. And when we do, we have more time and energy to bring relaxation, awareness and pleasure into our meals and into our lives.


MIND MEDITATION

Yogi Mind, Happy Being By Sarah Kline Photo by Heather Erson

HOPE BUCHBINDER MEDITATING ON THE SHORE OF JACKSON LAKE.

www.tetonspirit.com

A recent Harvard study reports anxiety and depression are hitting epidemic proportions in our country. It goes on to say that yoga and meditation are proving to be two modalities that are helping. As yogis we know this, and we practice what we preach each time we step on our mats. Our world of 24/7, constant-go and information overload is getting to us, and we are literally “losing ourselves.” So why would the ancient practice of yoga be helpful? Simply put, meditation or “Dhyana” is one of the eight essential components to a full yoga practice. The more we practice meditation, the more we stimulate and flex the different regions of the brain that strengthen and support our wellbeing. The most recently developed part of the human brain—the prefrontal lobes— are responsible for us being civilized, moral, peaceful and focused on quality of life. These prefrontal lobes also connected into the limbic part of the brain, which is our emotional super center. Scientific studies have shown that brain scans of long-term meditators show these regions to be thick and vibrant. For someone who suffers the highs and lows of an emotional roller coaster, this is GREAT news! MRI’s of long term meditators have shown a “shrinking down” of the limbic brain as the attentional regions in the brain grow stronger. Meditation is almost like slowing down, or taking the extremes out of the coaster.

We know emotion responds to thought and then creates a chemical release which can make the thought appear so true as if the feeling is real. This occurs even if a thought is just speculation or guessing, which can lead us to believe these thoughts as pure truths! I often remind my counseling clients and Kundalini students that a belief is a thought you’ve had over and over and over until you believe it to be true. I ask them if these rerun thoughts make them feel good; if not we begin to bust those mythic beliefs by testing them. A good way to test your beliefs for yourself is to ask: What reoccurring thoughts do I have that do not serve me? Do I hold on to judgmental or self defeating thoughts? (Like “I’m not good enough” or “I don’t deserve what I want,” etc.) Meditation helps us take ahold of our thoughts and gain the clarity to recognize if they are true or not. Slowing the mind down through meditation practice, whether it’s mindfulness—simply observing thoughts or stimulation—or applying focus techniques like counting breath, mantra repetition, visualization or Kundalini yoga, is a way of developing healthy real estate in the attentional centers of the brain. The more we practice, the more we gain. Let’s face it, we’ve practiced worrying and catastrophizing and that has taken us to places of anxiety, depression, hypertension and diabetes among others. As we calm the brain by quieting our thoughts, peacefulness, a healthy mind-body connection, love and trust are able to bubble forth as stronger thought and feeling patterns. Yoga is known as a practice of strength and flexibility. As the brain serves as the computer that programs the body, strengthening and flexing the mind through meditation is important. Best selling author and renowned psychiatrist specializing in brain disorders, Dr. Daniel Amen, is known for saying “when your brain works right, you feel right. And when your brain is troubled, you are much more likely to have troubles in your life.” He also was recently quoted as saying “do Kundalini Yoga as it works wonders on the brain!”

things: the Tetons, the fresh Wyoming air, my husband and my three beautiful daughters. That evening, after the girls were asleep, I told my husband, Cam, “I think I want to open a metaphysical book shop in that empty space in front of my office.” “Okay,” he replied. “No really,” I said. “This cannot be a crazy thing that pulls us apart. If I am going to do this, I need you and the girls to be on board. “Okay,” he said again. “I think it’s a good idea.” The next day I got to work assessing if I was insane. “Who the heck opens a bookstore in this day and age?” I wondered. I met with an old friend who once owned a bookstore in Driggs, explained my desire to have a metaphysical store with books and gifts that felt like a community center, to host educational programs and workshops on spirituality. “The books you want to sell,” he said, “those are the type people like to hold in their hand before they buy, besides you want to offer much more than just books.” “Could I open by December 15th?” I asked. “With a lot of work, it’s not impossible,” he replied. “I can’t help, but my wife, Jeanne, who really ran our store is looking for a project right now, she’d be thrilled,” he added. That was Thursday. By Sunday when we reconvened, they had a 100+ item list of everything that needed to be done to start a business and open a store. At the time I had never heard of an EIN nor had I the slightest clue where to buy the books or other wholesale items I wanted to sell. The date was November 6. “Am I really going to do this?” I stood in my kitchen asking my husband. The pieces were falling into place so quickly that it was difficult to pull back and fully contemplate the reality of it. The start up money had already been taken care of late September when my father’s financial advisor informed me that I had some cash that had emerged as a result of a business sale related to my late grandmother’s estate. It had just showed up and I was being encouraged to invest it. Skeptical of the stock market and not enough for real estate, I hadn’t made any decision; it was sitting there waiting. The next piece was my children, ages eight, six, and just three. If I was going to do this, the store was going to be open over Christmas break and my husband would be working every day on the Jackson Hole Ski Patrol. How would I manage? The telephone rang.

N THE FALL OF 2011, I WAS HIT BY A BOOKSTORE. Struck. It’s the only way I can explain it. In hindsight, I will say it felt like a divine act, some greater spirit flowing through me to implant a metaphysical shop in Jackson Hole at a precise moment in time. I didn’t understand it, but I knew I had to do it. Prior to October 2011, I had been pursuing my own spiritual path and also working with others to help them on their journey. In a quiet office on the backside of the Fish Creek Center in Wilson, I worked with clients, facilitating the release of emotional blocks and limiting belief systems using guided meditation and intuition. My part-time business was referral based and mellow. The idea of opening a store had never crossed my mind. Two days prior to my departure for a silent retreat with my favorite spiritual teacher, Adyashanti, I was working with a client in my office when I began to hear hammering and other loud construction sounds. I finished the session and then wandered up front to find a handyman remodeling the street side office space that had been dark and dormant for at least two years. “What’s going on?” I asked my landlord. He replied that he was closing the space off from the realty office to make it more rentable. “Do you have an idea?” he inquired. I promptly replied, “No way, I’m not doing anything until my youngest is in kindergarten.” She had yet to turn three at the time. I flew to California not giving the space another thought. It was three days of deep contemplation and my first experience of conscious silence. At retreat’s end, silence broken, I wandered the campus of Mount Madonna, a beautiful retreat center in the redwood-covered hills overlooking Monterey Bay. I stumbled into the small bookstore and sighed thinking, “I love these places, they meet everyone just where they are.” The next evening I caught up with a friend who had formerly lived in Jackson Hole. Out of my mouth fell the words, “Katie, when are you coming back to Jackson, so you can run my bookstore for me?” Katie didn’t skip a beat. “You don’t need me,” she replied. “You just need someone to help you execute your vision. I was dumbstruck. What had I just said? Had days of not talking made me crazy? I didn’t have a vision of a bookstore—or did I? I flew home and was greeted at the airport by my favorite

was on the line. “My circumstances have just changed, I am back in town, totally available and excited to babysit if you need it.” I almost dropped the phone. “I can’t get out of this, can I?” teary-eyed, I asked Cam. “How would you feel if you didn’t do it, Samantha?” he asked. What was happening felt so magical and aligned, that if I didn’t embrace the opportunity I would regret it. I could feel my mind’s arguments against it, but my heart was leading me. I took a deep breath and leaped onto this metaphorical surfboard called Spirit. Two days later, after many prior attempts to pin each other down, my landlord and I signed the lease for the space. It was November, 11, 2011. (Yes, 11.11.11 Master day.) Jeanne and I worked nonstop from this point. My formerly mellow existence was now on overdrive. I sent emails out to friends whose spiritual paths I admired requesting titles for books; I contacted friends who made intentional jewelry and imported sacred objects from Asia. The walls were painted; bookshelves were under construction. It was happening. As December 15th came and went, Jeanne and I both sighed. “It’s okay, I just know it needs to be open by December 21,” I told her. “Hmm?” Jeanne inquired. “I don’t know, but I feel that it needs to be in place and up

and running before the beginning of the Astrological year of 2012,” I answered. Try as we might, we couldn’t pull it together. The store opened December 21, 2011—according to the Ancient Mayan Calendar, the dawn of the last year of a 5,126-year-long cycle on earth. In April of 2013, the next wave of Spirit started to surge. Teton Spirit Connection rolled in as a result of the constant requests we were getting in the store from customers wanting to find holistic healers and spiritual events and programs in the area. This time I had a clear vision, a magazine and website to connect and promote body, mind and spirit offerings. I hired Kristen Joy, graphic designer for the local magazine Dishing, to help me bring it all into reality. I began a Kickstarter campaign, raised $11,000 in a month, and with the help of the community sent the first magazine to press the day we reached the Kickstarter goal. Everything was happening so fast, it was propelling itself. If I took a moment to consider the magnitude of all that I had started in such a short time, I felt myself wobble. My rational mind couldn’t fathom how on earth I could be pulling off two new businesses, my spiritual consultation business as well as my family, much less my own spiritual process and wellbeing. I really felt like I was on a surfboard—if I didn’t


look down or hesitate, I managed to keep everything humming along, but if I questioned it, something seemed to fall apart. For example, when I started to worry about being enough of a presence for my children, one of my employees would get ill or give notice. The curiosity of it all was that it didn’t feel like it was my agenda. I truly felt as though everything I was doing was part of a bigger plan that I didn’t understand. I just had to trust. Within the year some other really cool spiritually inspired offerings and businesses were popping up in the valley alongside those that have quietly existed here for years. This gave me confirmation that body, mind and spirit connection was becoming a full-time and public presence in Jackson Hole. Both Medicine Wheel Wellness and Intencions (now known as Lotus Vibes) were also hosting classes, workshops, and group meditations. The yoga studios began to expand their programming offering classes on the benefits of mindfulness, kundalini, essential oils, and more. A holistic-minded identity was emerging in Jackson Hole. One spring day in 2015, I was walking the hills in the National Forest behind my house looking at the valley spreading out before me. The air was fresh and the neon green of new growth was everywhere. Suddenly I recalled a past-life reading I had received back in 2006 from local intuitive Carol Mann. I’d been familiar with the idea of reincarnation—that individual souls return to earth time and time again to experience different incarnations and thus experiences and lessons on the path toward enlightenment. Always curious and wanting to know more about Carol’s intuition, I had signed up for a

session. Carol’s focus was past lives that were coming forward because they were relevant to my lifetime now. “In one, you were a young woman here in America. You and your family had a store on the Oregon Trail. You were selling provisions to the pioneers making their way West. In another, you were a man. You were also on the Oregon trail. You were one of the pioneer leaders guiding people, showing them the way to the New Frontier.” At the time of the reading, I didn’t know what to make of what Carol told me. Intuitive myself, I had had plenty of pastlife recollections that seemed far more exciting—especially when visiting places in Europe or Asia. These lives she spoke of didn’t seem to tell me anything about myself other than that I had chosen to move and settle in the West after growing up on the East coast. But eight years after that meeting with Carol, I looked toward the snow capped Tetons and a chill ran up my spine as the thought rang through my head: “That’s what I am doing! I am selling provisions to help people along their way into unexplored territory. I am forging the path and helping others find their way into the “New Frontier,” that unexplored place inside ourselves that leads us toward our truth. Now, I finally recognize my inspiration. I opened my shop to establish a friendly nondenominational place that prioritized spiritual seeking and curiosity. I started Teton Spirit to create a presence and voice for the holistic community that exists here. The time has come to make it known that indeed this beautiful valley connects us to our heart centers.

ike his ancestors, Ben Clark lives off this land. His great grandfather Josiah “Si” Ferrin raised cattle and homesteaded off Buffalo Valley Road; his grandfather, Harold Clark, built the road to Hoback Canyon. Two years ago, Clark decided to work the land in a very different way, by wildcrafting the flowers and natural materials found in abundance on the sixteen acres left of his family’s property near Fall Creek Road in Wilson and turning them into all natural aromatherapeutic healing agents.

Clark returned to his roots to transform the barn in which his mother, Barbara Clark, one of the valley’s foremost 4H leaders, kept her horses into a sanctuary he now calls the “Healing Barn.” Inside, he knocked down stalls to make way for an open air distillery where he now produces essential oils and hydrosols (aromatic waters) infused with sage, pine and wildflowers. From his land, he gathers wildflowers such as fireweed, arnica and yarrow in the summer and pine and sagebrush throughout the fall. Inside the barn he cooks them in a beautiful copper still he’s named Tic Tock, and makes them available through his company, American Wilderness Botanicals. These natural essences have healing properties that he recommends for inflammation, circulation and skin sensitivities like eczema. A massage therapist who used to run the spa at Lost Creek Ranch, Clark was inspired to create his own products after meeting Jackson native Ann Harman, author of “Harvest to Hydrosol” and founder of The Circle H Institute, which researches and documents the medicinal properties of plants. “There is an art and a science to doing this work,” Clark says. “One of the reasons plants produce essential oils is for self preservation. They can attract or repel insects depending on what they need, whether it is pollination or a defense mechanism to keep predators at bay.” Animals have this natural tendency too. After years of watching the elk herds migrate through the meadows of his backyard, Clark learned that they are “attracted to what they need. For instance, they find pedicularis when their muscles are sore.” Extracting essential oil from the bark and resin of species like lodgepole pine, Clark is sure to use the whole plant. His process, which came directly from Harman, is thousands of years old. Plants or flowers in full bloom are pressed down into the copper cauldron, with about a three to one ratio of water added to it and heated up with an electric coil (formerly an open flame) underneath. It is then sealed with rye flour until tiny bubbles appear, a trick used since the middle ages. When it gets to about 180 degrees, the steam starts to release hydrophobic chemicals, which separate from the water to make essential oils and hydrosols. It can take all day to create four or five gallons of hydrosol out of 180 pounds of water and 60 pounds of plant material. The water is transferred from one side of the copper still to the other where it is cooled and filtered out into three different products—the head, the heart and the tail, much like a brewery. The end result can be bitter, sweet or earthy. He combines the three products, until they taste “clear as water.” Hydrosols can be used to sooth sore muscles, aid in digestion and calm the skin. They can be applied directly with a spray bottle, put in a humidifier or diffuser, added to tea or mixed with other products to create soaps, lotions and candles. “Ben is doing what people did for thousands of years, making medicine with plants BEN CLARK AND HIS COPPER STILL, AFFECTIONATELY CALLED “TIC TOCK.”

HEALING & SUPPORTIVE PROPERTIES OF ROCKY MOUNTAIN PLANTS There are many healing and supportive properties of native Rocky Mountain plants, harvested to make American Wilderness Botanical hydrosols and essential oils. Though this plant selection has much more extensive uses and healing properties, here is a basic list: The following six plants have both hydrophilic (have an affinity to water) and hydrophobic (repelled by water) chemistries. These plants will yield both an excellent essential oil and an excellent hydrosol: :: LODGEPOLE PINE :: Promotes circulation, clarifies, tones and is supportive to the immune system. If you want to use an excellent soother for your feet while hiking, use Lodgepole Pine hydrosol in your hiking boots and socks. :: SAGEBRUSH :: Native Americans including the local Shoshone people use the whole plant in purification rituals. They used the plant as an expectorant and in a compress on the chest for respiratory illnesses. Sagebrush essential oil is highly anti-fungal but must not be used internally and should not be placed directly on most areas of the skin except for the hands and feet. You need to use a carrier oil (i.e. Jojoba oil) when using sagebrush essential oil on most areas of the body as sagebrush can be irritating if used directly on the skin. The hydrosol may be used directly anywhere on the skin.

HYDROLOSOLS AND ESSENTIAL OILS PRODUCED BY AMERICAN WILDERNESS BOTANICALS.

:: SAGEBRUSH BLOSSOM :: Anti-inflammatory and soothes sore muscles and joints because of its higher content of azulene which is a chemical that is highly anti-inflammatory. You need to use a carrier oil when applying to sore muscles and joints. (The hydrosol can be used without any kind of carrier.) :: SUBALPINE FIR :: Anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and smells wonderful. :: ROCKY MOUNTAIN JUNIPER :: Native Americans used this plant to treat respiratory problems and especially for urinary tract infections and to support the kidneys. :: GOLDENROD :: Used commonly in Europe for bladder and kidney stones. Many people use Goldenrod hydrosol to stop post nasal drip as the plant has antihistamine properties. The following four native species are hydrophilic (water loving) in nature and can only be distilled into a hydrosol. These plant species will not yield essential oil from the steam distillation process but will produce an excellent hydrosol: :: RED ROOT :: Use has traditionally been used as a lymphatic remedy, stimulating lymphatic flow. This makes the plant useful for enlarged tonsils and sore throat. :: SANDBAR WILLOW :: Native Americans have used Sandbar willow to help reduce pain and fever. Sandbar Willow is part of the willow family which is a family of plants related to the White Willow where aspirin was originally derived. FRESH PICKED ARNICA READY TO BE PROCESSED.

:: ARNICA :: Soothes bruises and sore muscles. The plant is highly anti-inflammatory. Use the Arnica hydrosol on your feet after a long hike to reduce bruising and inflammation. :: FIREWEED :: Calming, soothes sunburns and helps prevent breakouts. Indigenous people used Fireweed for skin irritations. Please keep in mind that plants have a large chemical profile. Some chemicals have a great affinity to water; other chemicals in the plant may not. Both types, essential oils and the chemicals from the plant that are more water loving (brought forth in hydrosols) can be very beneficial and supportive to the human body. Hydrosols can also be used on pets as hydrosols are more gentle and subtle in comparison to the potency of essential oils. A person should not use most essential oils on dogs or cats as they are very sensitive to them.


they live around,” says Harmon. Clark’s most popular product is his sagebrush oil, which comes in two varieties—Wyoming and Basin Big—with two very distinct scents. “You can’t find sagebrush essential oil anywhere else,” he says. “Thank God they don’t mass produce it.” While Clark likes to reap the healing benefits from the earth, he feels a strong responsibility to honor the legacy of the land and is particularly interested in the combination of Native American herbal remedies, pioneered by the Shoshone, and the Canadian French trappers’ preservation of plant extracts using grain alcohols. The only foreign product you will find in the barn is salt from the estuary’s of Brittany, France. He uses mud from the Gros Ventre river for mud bath treatments and stones from Fish Creek for hot stone massages. “Anything that’s not local I want to get from the French to denote the french trappers who settled here,” he says.

Clark not only makes hydrosols and essential oils for American Wilderness Botanicals at The Barn Healing Center, but he also rents out the facility for classes in candle and soap making and botany. The barn hosts two therapy rooms, for massage and body treatments with products that come from the local forests and rivers. Clarke’s sister teaches a wildlife photography class there in the summer and he is offering a class about harvesting and hydrosols. His mentor, Anne Harman, who now lives in Washington, hopes to come teach there soon. “Being born and raised here, I have always loved the land,” Clark says. “It is sacred. You have to be a steward. So why not use what you have as much as possible?!”

NEW YORK CITY BALLET DANCERS PERFORMING AT THE CENTER FOR THE ARTS.


Bringing in nationally and world famous dancers creates an extraordinary exchange that enlivens the dance community and ultimately Jackson Hole overall. But the caliber of professionalism is not left to visiting artists alone. Contemporary Dance Wyoming serves as the center point of the organization—with resident professional dancers who teach, perform, and help facilitate the business of this dynamic nonprofit. Contemporary Dance Wyoming (CDW) is a Wyoming’s only professional dance company, consisting of artists from all over the country. These gifted dancers practice and perform as a collective and also serve as the educational staff for DW’s youth dance programs. “Every member of the company teaches here,” says Rachel Holmes, CDW member, School Director and Instructor. Rachel is a former member of Elisa Monte Dance, a New York City based company that DW has hosted numerous times. Before settling at DW, Holmes danced with an impressive list of New York City based Dance companies as well as set works, taught master classes, workshops and private classes all over the US, as well as in South America and Europe. As School Director, Rachel coordinates classes and programs for DW’s dancing youth. Her responsibilities include planning programs with visiting artists. Professionals come to practice, perform, choreograph and teach, but most of all they come for inspiration—often for themselves as well as the students. “It’s really an exchange between DW and guest artists,” says Flosbach. “It’s about creative relationships—supporting the artists. It’s important to acknowledge the human connection that develops.”

“It’s about creative relationships—supporting the artists. It’s important to acknowledge the human connection that develops.” The students of DW’s Junior Repertory Company (JRC), a preprofessional dance company for highly dedicated dancers, ages 1118, learn first-hand what it is like to work with professionals. Masters Classes, which range from a few hours to two week intensives, show these youth what is possible in the dancing world. “At Masters Classes, students really want to be there, they really want to learn. They are so focused and respectful of the opportunity to see how the pros work together,” says Holmes. “You can’t really take one part and extract it,” says Flosbach who credits Babs Case, Artistic Director, as the visionary for the synergy of DW’s “ecosystem.” “Our desire is to attract and retain people who are qualified and inspirational and provide them dance opportunities through CDW. We then bring in guest artists who challenge, inspire and connect with CDW as both dancers and teachers. And then both CDW and guest artists show what is possible to our students. I constantly see each piece of the puzzle feeding and growing the next. No piece exists unto itself.” Cady Cox, Co-Director of JRC and member of CDW, is the ultimate example of the success of DW’s network. Cady was born and raised in Jackson and started dancing at DW when she was three. At the time,

- Small Public Classes in Wilson DW was still housed in the basement of the Pink Garter Theatre and performances were held at the Jackson Hole High School. It wasn’t until her Senior spring in High School that she had the opportunity to dance at the Center for the Arts theater. Regardless of the facility, DW cultivated a passion for dance that is now a career for Cady. “My training was amazing. The whole time I was growing up here master dance troupes came and performed. Every summer I would go away for programs. I studied with Alvin Ailey in New York City, Hubbard Street in Chicago—they came to Jackson one summer when I was in college and I saw them perform which was really cool.” Cox admits that once the Center for the Arts venue was built, the visiting artist program took off. While Cox had amazing experiences studying afar, she credits DW for implanting a level of artistic and technical dance ability that is unique. Cox was a dance major at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA. “When I got to college, no one else had had the experience of choreography. The work that was asked of me as part of JRC was a total leg up,” she explains. “DW provides all the tools: performing, teaching, choreography, as well as exposure to professionals.” After college, Cox continued her dance studies at Laban, a Dance Conservatory in London, UK. She then spent three years in Portland, OR, dancing professionally with Agnieszka Laska Dancers. She also taught ballet, jazz and modern at Virtuosity Performing Arts. Her time in Portland gave her the time and opportunity to really get a feel for the dance scene in general and how best to make a career out of the passion she loves. When Cox returned home to Jackson and DW to join CDW and teach classes, she realized how completely she had come full circle. “I can choreograph, I can teach, I can dance professionally, I can co-direct the Junior Repertory Company in this incredible facility and it all sustains living in Jackson Hole! “I am being fed in dance. I have created a life in dance. In cities most dancer’s have to have other jobs,” she remarks. Indeed, DW has created something very special and Cox knows it. Growing up here, becoming a dancer and then a master, and then coming back and contributing to the art and culture here, is why she returned. She loves the collaboration and how it benefits all who participate. “All of our dancers are so unique. It creates really interesting and different work which feeds back into the school,” she says. Flosbach agrees that it is the dynamism of the multi-dimensions of the dance experience that makes Dancers Workshop so special. “We are not bringing these artists to put them on a pedestal and hide them in a theater only to display them when people pay a ticketed price,” she says. “Part of each visiting residency offers masters classes to our students and the public. We offer open rehearsals at no cost and opportunities for Q&A.” “It’s funny” she admits. “The first time New York City Ballet came— watching them deplane at our tiny airport out in the middle of nowhere, my impression was that they were like ‘where are we?’ and now it’s a place they always want to come back to.”

SPIRIT ASTROLOGY

STAR WEATHER

June 20, 2016-December 21, 2016 from Sidereal Astrologer Lyn Dalebout

The second half of 2016 promises to be both volatile and cathartic. Mars completes its retrograde, pressuring us to take more risks after recent slow downs due to injury or frustrating delays. Most importantly, we will complete the historic transformational lastquarter square of Saturn and Neptune that began during the revolutionary years of 1988-89. Remember the dismantling of the Soviet Union and the Berlin Wall, and the Tiananmen Square massacre? We are again at a turning point that reveals a sobering realism for society, activating our collective imagination, more compassionate actions, and guides America’s election of a new President. Choices you make this year will help determine where you will be in 2025 at the completion of this transit. Remember we are embedded in a wondrous astrophysical symphony of planetary tones reverberating love and beauty throughout all of creation—from our individual cells to every institution. We are the agents of change. May you do your part to create greater harmony and balance amidst the shifts.

Mars turns direct. Mars turned retrograde on April 17, possibly creating injuries, delays, or attitude adjustments about your life. It was a time to reevaluate where you needed and wanted to focus your energy and actions, Now it’s time to charge forward with greater clarity of purpose and drive. On the global scene, Mars’s transit through Scorpio (sign of power, money, sex) continues to shine it’s investigative light in many dark corners, uncovering long buried secrets and scandals.

JULY 29-DECEMBER 29

Uranus turns retrograde July 29 making this day high voltage and inspirationally charged as Uranus’s influence functions like lightning or gets our attention via accidents or sudden epiphanies. Over this five month period, you might get shocking news or you may recognize what you need to break free from in order to grow. As Uranus is currently transiting compassionate Pisces, you may suddenly desire to forgive or seek forgiveness. These awakenings may take time to unfold so use this retrograde period to make peace with your past. Considering numerology, this retrograde supports buttoning up things we started in 2008 so that we will have a fresh start for a new nine year cycle. 2016 adds up to 9 (symbolizing the end of a cycle, 2017 adds up to 1 (new beginnings).

AUGUST 13

Saturn turns direct. Decision-oriented Saturn returns to forward motion from its retrograde that began March 25. If you’ve been working on upgrading the infrastructure of your life, or deeply committed to a creative project, today marks an important turning point. Saturn transits are nine months so you are at the halfway point of giving birth to something by autumn. Keep going with Saturn’s gifts of increased focus and determination. As Saturn is currently aligned with Antares, the red heart star of Scorpio linked to power and politics, this particular election cycle promises to be full of intrigue and power plays worthy of the best Shakespearean drama.

AUGUST 30-SEPTEMBER 21

JUNE 20

Jupiter conjunct the North Lunar Node on Summer Solstice. Summer Solstice happens at 4:34 pm MDT, bringing the maximum amount of light to our Northern Hemisphere. Coincidently, it is also a Full Moon and optimistic Jupiter aligns with the North Lunar Node, symbolizing your future Self. All cosmic forces align today to support you to courageously follow your dreams. Feel a surge of joy and possibility this extraordinary day is bringing your way.

JUNE 26

Jupiter trine Pluto. This celestial upbeat aspect aligns optimistic Jupiter in a positive trine to powerhouse Pluto, creating an abundance of energy, drive and willpower to push through any perceived barriers. Recognize your own ability to forge your way as you are always in charge of your destiny. Apply your will with focus and faith and good fortune will be yours. On the global stage, this aspect historically manifests as the resolution of long-standing conflicts with situations shifting in a positive way.

Mercury turns retrograde. When the planet of Mercury turns retrograde, you can experience breakdowns in your vehicles, appliances, communications and tech devices. No biggie, it’s simply time to upgrade. As Mercury is transiting both Virgo, dedication in work and service, and Leo, a sign that values joy and play, this is a good time to strike a better balance between work and play in the overall plan of your life.

SEPTEMBER 10

Saturn square Neptune. This major transit marks a challenging decisive turning point in events that started in 1989 and will complete in 2025. Reflect on your past, on dreams launched back then, and upon the status of your current life. Take a sober look at what might still need to shift so as not to feel despairing but uplifting about life. Neptune rules the power of our imaginations to envision a better world and Saturn rules the commitment via actions to make it happen. Given that Neptune, ideals and spiritual values, is transiting Aquarius, sign of the future, compassion and appreciation for diversity, today marks a progressive step forward for all of Earth.


SEPTEMBER 22

Fall Equinox. At 8:21 am MDT, our Sun marks a sacred turning point, reaching the half point on the journey to Winter Solstice. It is a perfect day to create a ceremony of intention and prayers for what you want to bring to fruition and harvest in 2016, remembering this a year of huge leaps of faith and courage completing one phase of life and beginning a new one.

SEPTEMBER 26

Sun conjunct Jupiter and Pluto turns direct. What a powerhouse of a day, this one will be with these two major events happening concurrently! As the Sun makes an annual conjunction with benefic, bountiful Jupiter, a cornucopia of abundance and positivity lands at your door or you generously gift another. Pluto turning direct from it’s retrograde of April 18, ensures your hard work and focused willpower will bring great rewards. Appreciate the joy of being you and your many accomplishments.

Through her gift of clairvoyance, Laurie clears what is limiting and no longer serving you, through sessions lasting from 1-2 hours.

JUNE 13-NOVEMBER 20

Neptune turns direct. Neptune’s influence is always altruistic, imaginative, calling forth our higher good and our better angels, who are compassionate and forgiving. You may experience a feeling of completion and success in regards to dreams or projects you set in motion since June 13 when Neptune went retrograde. Neptune also helps us see through illusions, delusions and unhealthy addictive behaviors. Something may come to light today if you are willing to shed the rose-colored glasses and see the reality of what is going on.

DECEMBER 19

Mercury turns retrograde. This is the third time Mercury is retrograde in 2016, giving us time to pause and refresh our over-busy minds with meditation or spiritual reading as this retrograde takes place in Sagittarius, the astrological sign of our Higher Mind. Sagittarius also rules speaking your truth, seeing the really big picture, and calling forth a new vision. How perfect to close out 2016 with the gift of this transit. Blessed Winter Solstice and Happy New Year to you!

In all her years and all of her study and practice, Hope has learned that bringing all the pieces of herself together is essential for healing. “I was not able to heal my body until I dealt with my inner psyche,” she says. “A meditative state is an embodied state. It’s not just yoga, it’s not just meditation. It’s a really nice blend.” She integrates earth-based, breathbased practices with consciously body-based practices. Ultimately, “it’s about really being in the body.” Tapping into that “organic unity of your body moving through space,” she says. Based in Jackson Hole, WY and Encinitas, CA, Hope offers consultation and coaching, embodiment yoga classes, private embodiment sessions, private “embodywork” sessions, and various workshops. She teaches at numerous Jackson Hole yoga studios, including Akasha and Inversion, and loves to collaborate with other practitioners. Hope’s intention is to help people know themselves fully, completely and profoundly so that they can tap into what they are born here to be. You can find out more at www.modernembodiment.com
