What is a nourished life? I immediately think about food and eating something that is delicious with people that I love. A meal with laughter and good vibrations. But nourishment is so much more than healthy fun meals! It is an overall state of happiness and balance.
Are you happy, satiated, grateful, healthy, loved, and peaceful? Do you feel alive? Do you trust that everything is going to be ok? Do you take time to renew? Do you feel connected to those whom are in your life? Are you eating in a healthy clean way? I want all of that, don’t you?
My name is Alisa Donner, and I created I Am Nourished in rooted belief that with some guidance, support, and practice we can ground into an all encompassing sense of serenity, while simultaneously expanding feelings of love and compassion. Peace. Truly living happy, abundant, and loving lives. And that instead of having fleeting moments of peace, that we can actually KEEP OUR PEACE, regardless of the situation or circumstance that may arise around us or emotions that may well up within us.
My goal is to offer information, how-to’s, teaching, coaching, and resources to inspire and motivate you to live a nourished life, in your body, mind, and soul. Awakening to your inner resources in yourself and the resources always available within the world around you.
