During Frost Valley YMCA’s Adventure Programs, campers choose from action-based activities, service-oriented trips (like working with Habitat for Humanity), and rugged excursions to beautiful and challenging locations around the United States. These empowering experiences, led by highly trained counselors, teach leadership and survival skills. From these experiences, campers find confidence and strength to last a lifetime.
Ask yourself two questions: What does being feminine mean to me, and what truly is the definition of a Goddess to me? Once you can answer this deep within your soul, you can then embrace, embody, and own the power of your feminine essence. You will then know how to put your female spirit into action. The time has come to put your female spirit into action at Sierra Bender’s Boot Camp for Goddesses.
What are they and what do they have in common?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Lupus Erythematosus (LE), and Scleroderma (S) are diseases that can all be partially or completely reversed! This is a bold statement. Conventional medicine has shown that it has no answers for these life-taking, debilitating conditions except to try and slow down the degeneration or alleviate the symptoms.

What is the secret of my neighbor’s great skin? How come my girlfriend has this amazing posture and I don’t? How come my colleague can jog in Central Park for an hour and I cannot last for 5 minutes? How do I live longer and better? By now you have heard it all: eat right, exercise, and listen to your hairdresser. Jokes aside, it heartens me to see that people are much more preventively oriented than they were in the 80’s and 90’s. Nobody wants to wait for a crisis. People want to nip the problem in the bud before it unravels as an illness. Prevention is awesome, especially when it is addressed from the holistic angle: looking at you as a complex human being living in a stressful world. Yet, the regular physical exam of the past is not exactly a holistic experience. I wish it were not true, but you all have been there: in and out in 10 minutes. This may be enough time to look at the sore throat, but it is not a timeframe for a comprehensive check-up.

Susan has been finding it hard to find a great guy. Now that she finally met one that seems like a man she could get involved with she has to tell him she has Herpes. She already knows that if she doesn’t tell him right away and he finds out later he might just disappear, leaving her alone and looking again.
Justin has no problem attracting beautiful women but when he has a Herpes outbreak he knows it will be the deal breaker. Women are not likely to stay with a man who has it and he finally is looking to get married and start a family.
