Valerie Goulding - Grass Valley, Ca

Valerie Goulding: I discovered Ayurveda in 2003. At the time, I was a new mother married to a Navy Special Forces officer. I was isolated and making a difficult transition into motherhood at 29 after having been in the corporate professional world. Living in a new place, there were no friends or family nearby to assist or provide relief from full time solo parenting. My then-husband was frequently gone and focused on training and deployments to the war zones of the Middle East. My health was failing due to stress, isolation and burn out. I had no energy – just when I needed it the most to nurture my infant daughter.

I didn’t have a ‘condition’ – no disease could be diagnosed. I didn’t understand what was causing my lack of well-being. Western medicine couldn’t cure me – it could only prescribe medications that masked symptoms and caused side effects that I didn’t want. I was determined to find something that could truly help me heal. Read More...

Tona Leiseth - Bozeman, Montana

Tona Leiseth: I come from a great American family of gypsies.  We moved a couple of times a year throughout my childhood.  We ate tater tot casserole and drove a ford. My dad was a cowboy and my mom a ballerina.  There were 3 kids, all of us different…very different. But we were connected through laughter, tears and even some blood.  My family didn’t have money, but we had the ultimate happiness – each other.

I was taught to live in the moment and always help those in need. My siblings and I turned into adult version of our childhood selves. One brother became a mechanic after years of getting in trouble for taking apart household items – like the TV, for instance. The other brother works in Silicon valley… believe it or not that kid started wearing a suit when he was 5 years old.

Me? Well, I grew up trying to mend things.  Things like hurt feelings, relationships and scraped knees. I went to work with my aunt who worked at a children’s hospital as often as I could to see the kids with cancer and gunshot wounds.  I wanted to help.  Read More...
