My birthday comes right after the holidays. This year, my husband, who knows and loves me the very best, whisked me away to a hot springs spa in the desert for a weekend. Soaking in the warm water pools, gazing at the palm fronds waving overhead with glistening sun reflections, gave me the chance to ‘leave it all behind’ for a few days. As I felt the holiday stress dissolve into the mineral water, I thought about how essential it is to make time for detoxing!
Ok, I had eaten sugary foods often over the holidays, but as I soaked, I realized that it wasn’t just my body that needed detoxing from excesses. It was my mind that needed to let go of driving, task-oriented thoughts; my emotions that needed to absorb and release all the many feelings that had coursed through me at holiday gatherings; and my spirit that needed to be renewed for the new year ahead.
Dr. Deanna Minich calls this process, “Whole Detox” in her new book about to be published in March. She found that many of her clients didn’t get lasting results from detox programs that focused solely on what they ate. If your goal is to get the full results you need from a detox program, let me tell you about her insightful and intuitive method for taking one’s whole being through a complete renewal. I promise you, her genius and compassion will guide you into the deepest recesses of your self! Read More
Dani-elle – decorating the concert hall with Teeccino!
Dani-elle is a young but veteran Nashville singer-songwriter currently touring with her band. Playing at multiple venues in Nashville after the success of her single “Bye, Bye, Bye”, as well as at CMA Fest with an audience of over 90,000 people! Dani-elle, her mom and her entire road crew are all Teeccino fans, which we discussed on our blog when Dani-elle debuted on TeeccinoBuzz last August! Dani-elle continues to share Teeccino with her fans, and she wrote us to tell us all about her recent New Year’s Eve concert –
“Hey everyone!! Once again I am able to write that another one of my shows was a complete success involving the amazing Teeccino!! New Year’s Eve at Genetti Manor there were over 200 people. When we went for a quick sound check, Mom and I set up our Teeccino samples at the place settings so each individual person would get theirs. It was such a hit, people were asking for hot water that night so they could try it right away. The result? They LOVED it! Everyone immediately wanted to know where they could purchase their own because they enjoyed it that much! I was so excited to hear this. The show went absolutely great and my band and I had a blast I love being able to share any kind of product I enjoy with my fans, especially when it is something as healthy and delicious as Teeccino truly is. Loving that my fans are turning into your fans as well…” Read More
CANADIAN Teeccino trial size packets!
Andrea is a very dedicated Canadian Ambassador who recently brought Teeccino to a Hollywood-themed gala fundraiser for youth outreach services. She told us all about the elegant and important evening –
“I am a volunteer with an amazing non-profit organization called ACCESS Youth Outreach Services. The organization supports youth at risk in our community by providing a mobile youth center each weekend of the year along with other great programs that help youth. My husband and I are business owners and our company Ethical Waste Services donates 50% of annual profits to this cause, along with volunteer time. This was my first year of involvement with the planning of The Evening of Inspiration fundraising gala for this charity. I was able to speak with many people about the benefits and great taste of Teeccino. I found out that not too many knew about this amazing product and advised them about where to purchase more.”
The photos you sent – and the cause you helped support – are so fabulous, Andrea! We are thrilled Teeccino could be a part of this important event!
All Hollywood attire at the 4th Annual Evening of Inspiration Gala
Grace is a longtime Teeccino Ambassador who has done a wide variety of events. We featured “Grace’s Office Lunch…” last year, and Grace’s two events over this last holiday were a great success as well. She told us:
“We had a holiday party at my office, which has about 30 people. I brought Teeccino to my office holiday party last year, and people were excited to see it again. In fact, the sample tee-bags went VERY fast. One of my co-workers told me she’d been meaning to buy a new box at the store so she was thrilled to have it show up just in time when she ran out.”
“I also took Teeccino to a holiday party we had at the place where I volunteer teach ESL to new immigrants. Everyone who tried it loved the taste, and they were all so excited to have samples to take home with them – like extra stocking stuffers!”
Besides giving Teeccino out to her many coworkers and volunteer group, Grace also gave us some kudos…which we appreciated so much – Read More
I have to confess that as the holiday season approaches every year, I feel dread. Of course, I do really look forward to celebrating and sharing time with family and friends. Nevertheless, the reality is, holidays are a lot of work on top of the work we already have on our plates every day. If your plate is like mine, it’s already overloaded so holidays can tip us into a state of over-the-top STRESS.
This year, my plate included moving my 91 year old mother from Connecticut where she’s lived since 1958 to Santa Barbara to be near me. So instead of shopping for presents or getting the house ready for my annual Christmas party on the 23rd, I’ve been handling the movers and keeping her from stressing out as much as possible. In the process, I’ve been looking at how I handle stress and what I can do to reduce it.
Taylor at her graduation…at her lovely Teeccino display!
Taylor became a Teeccino Ambassador just a couple months ago and it’s been a whirlwind tour (literally!) ever since. Taylor discovered Teeccino while working at Bhakti Fest the last few years – and inquired this fall about our Ambassador program. Shortly after she applied to share samples at her first event – her graduation from massage school! – Taylor agreed to work along with our team at SoCal VegFest, a large event in her area. She told us in her own words:
“I first came into contact with Teeccino while vending at Bhakti Fest myself as a pizza chef several years ago. It’s made a lasting impression as I’ve been drinking it for 3 years now. I graduated from the American Institute of Massage Therapy — Santa Ana, which provides “a career in just one year”! Though healing and massage therapy have been a part of my life since the age of 4, I am now distributing my own business cards for family members. When I am passionate about something I can’t help but share with those around me. In that way, everyone around me now drinks Teeccino. I am a strict practitioner of Bhakti Yoga philosophy and have lived in a Krishna temple and ashram for almost two years. I believe we must nourish not only the body like a temple but also our soul. Hare Krishna.”
We applaud your passion in your pursuits, Taylor, and we are thrilled that being a Teeccino Ambassador is one of them!
Shanon (our marketing manager) and Taylor at SoCal VegFest!
Taylor also told us, “Vegfest was an absolute thrill…non-stop visitors inquiring about the story and flavors behind Teeccino! Shannon (Teeccino’s marketing manager) and I made a great team. I’ve been a vegetarian/vegan for two years and it has changed my life for the better. I was thrilled to see so many people enjoy delicious foods that surprised their taste buds.” Read More
