My conscious journey officially started in 2002 when I started training with Gay and Katie Hendricks in the Foundations of Conscious Living.  What transformational experiences!  I learned so much about living in integrity, with full responsibility, expressing my creativity and living in my genius.  These principles have become part of me and a grounding force in my life.  I’ve been a Conscious Relationship and Life Coach since 2004 and so much enjoy coaching individuals and couples to live more mindfully and joyfully.  I have more recently moved into conscious and compassionate eating by going vegan in November 2009.  Everything about being vegan fits with my beliefs about how I want to show up in this world.  I feel even more in integrity and alignment with choosing to eat food that causes no harm to animals, the planet and is more nurturing of my health.  I hope to inspire healthy, compassionate living, curiosity about the vegan way of life and heart centered activism for animals and the planet by sharing resources and links that passionately motivate me.  I also want to make your taste buds salivate and dance with an amazing array of recipes, restaurant reviews and links to absolutely delicious vegan food.

    Hi Dana,
    I stumbled across your blog today, and wanted to ask if you’d be interested in having us list it on Heritage Media’s blogroll at heritage.com/blogs. It looks like it would be a great addition to our site, and differently of interest to Washtenaw County. If you’re interested, could you email me at dveselenak@heritage.com? Thanks!

    Beautiful site. I’m looking for vegetarian clothing stores in Washtenaw County or Southeast Michigan. Any ideas?

      Hi Doug,
      Thanks for visiting my site. There are no specific vegetarian or vegan clothing stores that I’m aware of in Washtenaw County. For shoes, you can find some vegan shoes at chains like DSW or Famous Footwear. Downtown Ann Arbor has Perpetua Boutique which is organic and I believe vegan friendly fashion for women…don’t think it has men’s.
      I’ve ordered really nice comfortable shoes for my husband from Vegetarian Shoes. Then, of course, Moo Shoes.
      Good luck
