Folks were coming into Generation Green specifically looking for this full spectrum, cannabis infused healing salve, and going on about the benefits they experienced from using it.

Just take a look here at the testimonials! “The best gift you can give is pain relief to someone you love” – Owner, Nicholas Kohuch I had first met Nicholas Kohuch, the founder/creator of this healing salve when it was still in the test stages. I was definitely impressed with the amount of knowledge and passion he had for his product and was happy to hear that he had stayed the course. Once legal to do so, he began the leg work with the markets and educating. His intention is genuinely to help eliminate pain from people’s lives. Making ourselves a priority when it comes to our health is something I have long spoke on! We can never truly live our intended, best life until we do. I’m excited to see where this young entrepreneur goes with this business in terms of product expansion and reach, and believe he has the potential and drive to do some great things!

Made Beauty Company: Beyond the Surface
I always find it fascinating to hear someone tell their story, to explain how they got to where they are and then when their passion starts to speak you know they are meant to do something big! Owner and makeup artist Nancy Dutiaume of Made Beauty Co. is definitely passionate. She's passionate not only about makeup and the artistry involved, but also bringing out the beauty from within! The beauty that we maybe aren't seeing for ourselves but perhaps needs a little coaxing out with a tool she uses called "confidence". It's through confidence that beauty radiates and Nancy is on a mission to hand that tool to every woman she meets! Nancy offers workshops on clean beauty, makeup tips and tricks and of course her and her team of mobile artists are available for any event that you might require a full glamover! In addition to this, Nancy is one of the hosts of a new podcast that recently launched called "Version 5" , a podcast about five women changing the narrative within our communities through love. @madebeautyco www.madebeautyco.com

Age; Just A State Of Mind & A Number
Come have a listen as Sherry, Pam & Alison have a conversation about a growing concern called “Ageism” If you are unaware of this term, Ageism is a type of discrimination or prejudgment against aging or elderly people and their capabilities. This type of discrimination can be especially evident in the workplace. Many adults try to re-enter the workforce after either being home raising a family, or perhaps even wanting to change careers. They can be met with judgment of their competency or viewed as having had their time! The attitudes and stereotypes about aging are formed I believe on our personal experiences and interactions with aging people. If you had great experiences with aging family members it will definitely be easier than those that have simply formed opinions based on what others believe. With a little examination of our thoughts and beliefs around aging, we can perhaps try to be aware of when we allow the prejudgment to take over and help minimize the belief. @wildflowerprojectwpg

Lisa Scrivens: Connecting You To Spirit
Lisa Scrivens is on a mission to help as many people as she can by connecting them to spirit and better understand the journey we all take. From a young age Lisa could see and sense spirit. She grew up with a mother and grandmother that also shared this gift and recognized it for what it was. She attempted to push this aside as she was embarrassed at the possibility of being made fun of. It wasn't until her grandmother that had since passed away came to her and told her it was her time to use this gift, that she decided to honour her and begin to utilize with the intention of helping people. Finding comfort after a loved one has passed is what most come looking to Lisa for, as do those that fear the unknown and need to appease their own anxious fears. For our co-host Alison who lost her daughter tragically (see episode 9 for her story), Lisa became her lifeline and gave her the only possible comfort when she connected and knew her daughter was ok. Unbeknownst to many, Lisa freely offers her services to palliative care patients. This is something that has really become an important part of her strong desire to give back. It was while giving in service that Lisa discovered yet another gift she instinctively felt led by. You will have to tune in to hear exactly what that gift is, when Lisa shares this publicly for the very first time! We hope you will enjoy this special episode and find comfort you might be needing. lisascrivens.com @lisascrivensmedium Lisa Scrivens-Canadian Medium Facebook Group

Amelia MacDougal: The Nurture of Nature
We all know the benefits being in nature offers us. Even just visualizing a warm sunny day, can evoke a feeling of warmth, of nurturing or of peace within. Why then do we not go there first for healing, for stress release, or reconnecting and grounding. We have this beautiful gift of nature that we don't necessarily utilize for our healing. Amelia MacDougal is the founder of Seeds Of Love Creations and is passionate about guiding us all to reconnect, to allow ourselves to be open and instinctively led to finding our medicine in nature. "My passion for healing through nature was sparked while I was working as a pharmacist, as my eyes were opened, through both my personal experience and that of the people I was caring for, to the widespread impact of stress in our lives, and the failure of our medical system to truly make us well." @SeedsOfLoveCreations www.seedsoflovecreations.com

Alison Gilbert: A Wildflower Story - Learning To Walk With Grief
Everyone has a story, and we're grateful that our Wildflower co-host Alison is so courageous to share a part of hers with all of us. Losing her only biological daughter Amy tragically five years ago, and then trying to figure out who she could now be in this world, was, is, and will forever be part of her journey. Some of you may remember or recognize Amy as one of Generation Green's original staff members. We feel as if Amy somehow has been part of bringing this Wildflower Project to be and will be forever grateful for having had her a part of our lives.
