Farm of Life guest Sandy speaks about her self-care, weight loss and personal growth while spending a month eating cleansing raw food with us in Costa Rica. Recovering from bereavement, and reflecting on the metaphor of a butterfly, she departs feeling whole and ready! Some of her best moments include doing soul retrieval (shamanism.org), and having an authentic Costa Rica meal with a local family sharing stories of the old days. Sandy is avid birder. We joke about our favorite nicknames for these avian wonders, including the orgasm bird (the Laughing Falcon) and the computer bird (Montezuma's Oropendula).
