Become a Qualitarian Go Green - Get Clean
All we have to work with is this moment. Make it count.
The Qualitarian Cleanse has been designed to provide an opportunity to...
• Re-evaluate and uplevel your current lifestyle. • Boost your immune system to experience a sense of harmony within yourself. • Raise the quality of your choices in the food you eat, the things you keep
and the people you meet and greet!
Throughout these 21-days we will place our emphasis on CLEANSING AND SUPPORTING the processes within your body in conjunction with exploring the rhythms of your everyday life
incorporating the benefits of OPTIMAL FOODS and HEALTHY HABITS.
AWARENESS Is the realization that wellness is a way of life
EDUCATION Is a tool which can deepen one’s dedication to positive life affirming habits
PERSONAL GROWTH Is creating a lifestyle designed to achieve the highest level of health and well being
Becoming a Qualitarian means choosing Quality over Quantity. Less is more in so many ways.
When you clear space in your home and get rid of the junk that has no purpose or personal value, your mind will become more at peace.
When you feed your body life supporting whole foods, you eat less because your cells are fully satisfied and you thrive.
When you surround yourself with a supportive community, you can relax into heart-centered connections that feed your soul.

When my daughter, Roxanne, was explaining her own journey as a conscious consumer en- joying the benefits of healthy eating habits and highly nutritious whole foods, she explained that her choices were not limited to being a Vegetarian but to being a Qualitarian - choos- ing the best quality of fruits, veggies, dairy, meats, grains, and water. By placing quality over quantity, we shift our habits immediately to become a connoisseur of life supporting our ability to thrive.
More than the food we choose, the quality of our life has so much to do with how we flow through each day in our home and in our com- munity. When we take time out on a regular basis to slow down and re-evaluate what we eat, what we do with our time, and who we are surrounded by, we are given the opportu- nity to update our choices and our habits with who we want to be now and in the near future.
The active pace of our society tends to pull us away from our own center and we often un- consciously go in whatever direction the tide is flowing, which is often away from our own true desires and purpose. Bringing clarity into our life, we develop our highest potential by acknowledging that which feeds not only our body, but our soul. To connect with the part of ourselves that knows what is best in order to thrive, we need to slow down and feel and listen deeply. Now is the time to press PAUSE.
Gifting yourself these 21 days to turn inward and reconnect with your own inner guidance takes a commitment to simplicity which will open up space in your life for personal reflec- tion. Ahhh - are you breathing a sigh of relief already? Space for your Self!
To get more rest let yourself unplug more often, enjoy walks in nature, prepare simple, nourishing meals, and say “no” to that which pulls you away from your purpose. Now is the time to say “yes” to that which brings you closer to home - to your Self.
Allow this time of CLARITY to feel different - creating subtle changes day by day. Become more aware and more sensitive to how you feel moment by moment. Enjoy the attention to details in the way you move, breathe, eat, speak, listen, and respond to the life around you. Practice being the calm in the middle of the storm. It is there within you at all times.
NOW IS THE TIME TO PAUSE AND CHOOSE THAT WHICH ENHANCES THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE.
You may have thought this cleanse was all about food, however, in order to truly commit to feeding ourselves well, we must be tapped into our own energy and (re)learn to trust our intuition. What is more important than what we eat, is how and when we eat in rhythm with the day, the season, and our own con- stitution. This is not only about shifting your physical metabolism, but also your mental and emotional metabolism to create balanced flow, moment by moment.
Give yourself time this week to start the pro- cess. Schedule time out for yourself on your calendar, especially the 10-day cleanse that starts next week. Letting go of distractions and extracurricular activities will allow for more personal quiet time, which is necessary for deep healing and rejuvenation.
Please press the pause button...

Know Your Why BODY Tune into your body – acknowledge your needs
MIND Get clear – know your intentions and communicate them
SPIRIT Listen to your intuition – trust your inner wisdom
CONNECT WITH WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU.
How does your body feel?
What needs to change?
What IS working for you?
The body is our physical layer known as Anna-maya-kosha. Anna means food. Our body requires food to survive. What we feed our body can make a big difference between simply surviving and thriving. Which do you choose?
Our body is the physical manifestation of our Spirit - our true essence. Are you tapped into what is most true for you? What makes you thrive?
Our outer physical world also influences who and how we are. When our space is cluttered, unorganized, full of crap, then our inner environment feels the same. Consider purging your kitchen and other areas of your home this week to set the stage for clarity, calm and commitment.
Setting a clear intention for yourself will give your mind the anchor to remain committed to letting go of the habits and stuff that no longer serve you. This is not an easy task. What you need to do is CLARIFY YOUR WHY.
Why to you want to cleanse?
Why to do want to create new habits?
Why is this important to you?
If you don’t do this, what are the results?
If you do create your desired changes, what will your life look like?
Take time with the following worksheet to set your own CLEAR INTENTIONS.
CLEAR INTENTIONS AND CLEAR PURPOSE BEGETS CLEAR RESULTS
Give yourself as much space as possible for this entire 21-day process. That might mean keeping your schedule quite open. It might mean having the freedom to go to bed as early as you desire without feeling that you should be getting something else done.
As far as this packet of information, you’ll find you don’t need the entire packet, but just relevant sections. You might skip entire sections. Pay attention to what is useful for you right now, and leave the rest for an- other time. Disgard overwhelm at the door. Choose what serves you right now and com- mit to your WHY.

To create the life we are meant to live, we must draw the mind again and again to our dharma (purpose), our deepest intentions, and the qualities of the Divine within.
