WE ALL NEED FRIENDS! Friends can come in many forms and the relationships can be as colourful
as the nature we live in.  Here I don’t mean the type of friend you add on FB just because they
sent you an invitation.  What I am talking about are real, physical and emotional relationships
that share common threads.  A relationship which is healthy and where both individuals
understand what they bring to the friendship and one where they are given the space and
opportunity to grow, make choices and fully participate.  It’s about listening to each other, being
there for one another, supporting the process of change and growth, and it’s ultimately about
Boundaries are also vital! I’m not talking about putting up walls, I’m talking about healthy
personal space that we all need to cultivate so that we can remain strong and integral.  Good
boundaries in a relationship can simply mean being clear with each other about what the
relationship is, what it stands for and about each individual stating their needs.  It’s also about
being able to say YES and NO (a harder one for most people) when it feels right in the body. 
Having a voice!  And when it is heard by the other, it’s accepted. 
And remember, don’t take it personal.
Now I will share with you our Friends and maybe they can be yours to!
Veriditas Hibernica
Veriditas Hibernica was founder in Cork, Ireland by Nikki Darrell.  Nikki is great friend and mentor
to be personally and someone who has taught and inspired me on many things.  The community
that she set up from her sanctuary in Coachford, County Cork continues to grow, flourish, inspire
and support healthy community near and far.  It is a shining light and great example to all.  I am
happy to call Nikki and Veriditas Hibernica a friend.  LOOK FOR YOURSELF
Herbalistes sans Frontières
Herbalistes sans Frontières in their own words are, “French herbalism working towards an
international herbal community,” and for that alone Herba Vitalis shares a common thread.  It
was Nikki who suggested the link and after an email I could sense the friendship was mutual. I was
happy that they wanted me to be part of their community.  CHECK THEM OUT
“What you will see is love
coming out of the trees,
love coming out of the sky,
love coming out of the
light. You will perceive love
from everything around
you. This is the state of
bliss.” ~ Miguel Ruiz
“Find the courage to ask
questions and to express
what you really want.
Communicate with others
as clearly as you can to
avoid misunderstandings,
sadness and drama.”
