The purpose of this fundraiser is not to expand the business, but to extend our outreach into the community.  The core of our mission is to be a build an oasis of love and care. We envision a place that will feed you with the highest quality food, provide the best in alternative health care and awaken you to something greater within yourself.  Additionally, we plan to build an institute offering more courses which foster community, connectivity, health, leadership and principles for living a fulfilling life.

In order to realize this goal, we are asking for your support!

Building this level of community takes more than good intentions. It requires intentional investment from everyone who believes in the big-picture vision we’re holding. By making a contribution, you will not only receive a gift that will support your well-being but also  help us to create a place that will nourish, revive and support many people in feeling more empowered in their lives.

Our New Location

 

The new location is over 7,000 square feet, with twice as many session rooms, an organic café, an education seminar room, plus a beautiful outdoor space. We’re expanding our services to include integrative medicine, life coaching, integrative nutrition, and more classes.

We have an enormous vision of creating a welcoming place; a place where people want to belong, not just join; a place where no one is just a ‘visitor’. The new Nourishing Journey Wellness Center and Cafe will center around you, a valued member of our community.

The majority of the funds we raise will go towards the new organic café and the new education space. Some of the expenses associated with this level of expansion are

  • Architect and design blueprints
  • Licensing and permits
  • Kitchen equipment
  • Training room equipment
  • Plumbing and fixtures
  • Building Contractor fees
  • Demolition and Construction (flooring, walls, heating, etc.)

And, of course, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-410-992-3001.

 

Wellness Is A Journey

We all have our own individual challenges when it comes to our health and well-being.  Whether you are an avid natural health adventurer or just starting to see the potential benefits, there will always be a path in front of you. How you travel down that path is a decision, a choice. No matter where you are in your journey, the choice to live a vibrant life is only and always one step away.

Our new motto: Healing Bodies– the physical aspect; Opening Minds– realizing what it means to be well and the possibilities for achieving that; Uniting Hearts– coming together to discover what really resonates among us all. What makes Nourishing Journey so unique is that we offer tri-level healing for body, mind and spirit all in one place. We work with our clients from a truly holistic approach – we care about the whole person.

Part of our mission at the Nourishing Journey Wellness Center is to increase the feeling of community, the sense of connectedness. We look forward to welcoming you into our beautiful new space this spring, together we can share greater love, joy, and peace!

 

Here’s What We’re Changing

We have a small event room at our current location, but we want to offer more opportunities for our clients, their families and friends, and the local community at large to come in and learn how to take better care of themselves.

The new space will have two event rooms- one for intimate gatherings like meditation or intuitive readings, the other large enough for energy healing certification courses or training seminars. Some of the things we will host are yoga, meditation classes, health and wellness panel discussions with an integrative medical doctor, cooking classes, essential oils workshops and even leadership development courses.

Our current lounge area is really not ideal- it’s upstairs next to the quiet treatment rooms. With the new organic café, we’ll have a wide open space near the entrance with tables and chairs, including a workbench with laptop outlets. There aren’t that many choices in Howard County for good, healthy, wholesome food. We plan to offer another option for people to swing by on their way to work, or come and sit down for a cup of Bulletproof coffee or herbal tea, enjoy a light meal, and relax in good company.

Our hope is that the new Nourishing Journey Wellness Center is going to have a powerful impact on the community and help as many people as we can.

We’re all trying to find our way to being happy and healthy and joyous and connected at the heart. It’s so hard to do that sometimes. So the big vision Nourishing Journey is to support and grow a community with healing and wellness and spiritual connection; to bring people together and get back to loving each other again. We want you to feel a part of us; to feel welcome and at home.

The Risks and Challenges

Our risk is actually minimal- we have secured a bank loan for part of the expenses and we will be moving into the newer, larger and expansive space no matter what. The challenge comes in how available funds influence decisions regarding how the space is designed, constructed and utilized.  Not reaching our goal may, naturally, mean making compromises, therefore, the cafe might be delayed until much later in the year.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH

We really appreciate your reading this entire message. If what we are creating resonates with you and you want to be a part of our expansion, then please visit our PlumFund page and choose your service packages and rewards. See you at the Grand Opening!
