The talented and beautiful actress Beth Behrs is on a mission to help other women. Beth co-founded SheHerdPower, a program that provides survivors of sexual assault with a weekend of equine therapy. I didn’t know very much about equine therapy (a.k.a. horse therapy) before Beth’s awareness campaign. Now that I’ve learned about the many benefits of working with horses, I truly believe in their healing powers and the importance of Beth’s cause.
“Interacting with horses, we glimpse nature from an entirely different perspective. A view of the world observed through the unconscious side of the brain. Because horses function from the premise of a herd identity, they see relationships as partnerships and allow us to integrate into the herd. For hundreds of years the horse has been a presence in the creation of our world. They can carry us physically and spiritually into uncharted territory, beyond our everyday worries and distractions. Their innate sensitivity and alertness reads the intention of every thing, including the purity of our spirit. The horse is a symbol of transcendence and we have the opportunity to become the Centaur.”

To increase awareness for SheHerdPower, Beth collaborated with Brass & Unity to design jewelry that directly benefits the program. Proceeds from each bracelet or necklace sold works to empower more survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse.
In a sea of protein bar options, only one promises and delivers “goodness on all levels.” GoMacro is my go-to not only because their bars are made of all-natural plant based ingredients, but also because their mission (besides providing healthy deliciousness) is to have positive effects on the planet and beyond.
GoMacro truly pays it forward in many directions. In years past, part of proceeds from the vegan harvest goes directly to the Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, a home to neglected and abandoned farm animals. They also support macrobiotic education and health recovery programs at the Kushi Institute in Massachusetts.
I did a Facebook Q&A this morning and I can’t believe how many wonderful questions you all asked. I’m so grateful to have the best fans in the world! Here are 15 questions and answers from the session, edited slightly for website formatting.
Thank you to each and every person who took the time to send in a question. I wish I could have answered them all! I can’t wait to do it again.
While I love decorating, planning events and playing with my style, my true passion comes from an entirely different place. My mission in life is to celebrate the little things and spread light and joy, but most of all kindness. There are many wonderful anti-bullying campaigns out there, and I especially love what my friends at The Kind Campaign are achieving through all their hard work. The only way to actually stop bullying is to spread kindness!
Being kind comes from the heart. It means accepting people for who they are. So rather than create awareness, my goal for this part of my website is to create action.
