Happy Summer Solstice!

June 21 heralds the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere the longest day of the year. This is due to the fact that on this day the sun travels the longest path through the sky. It is also the official first day of summer. Cancer is the astrological sign the sun falls in and represents mother, nurturing and family. Being a water sign it invites us to be flexible and fluid this time of year. Kicking back and enjoying it all. Whether at a beach,in a pool or even your bathtub the solstice invites us to dive in and soak a bit. Let out all the kinks accumulated this winter and just float!
The ancients honored this time as a sacred holiday welcoming the sun’s return. How can we honor it you may ask? Well to have a really fun time you could travel to Stonehenge where the celebration there literally attracts thousands of people or you could find a way to honor this day right in your own backyard.
Here are a few suggestions:

  • Get out in nature. Visit a park, hug a tree..well you get the idea. This is a day to celebrate Mother Earth.
  • Have a drumming circle as the sun sets honoring the light that is permeating the planet.
  • Take a sea salt bath and meditate setting an intention for what you would like to do this summer with a big focus on fun and joy.
  • Because fire is another aspect of this celebration have a bonfire and if you feel it maybe dance around it?! If not enjoy the flames and release any of the old stuff that may be holding you back.

Whatever you choose to do the key is to have fun with this celebration. It is my belief that right now focusing on the light by being as joyful as possible is the best way to spend our time. We are the beckons of sun that will brighten the path of this world even though at times it seems so dark. Having a joyous time will not only raise our vibrations but countless others that are touched by our energy. So kick up your heels, drum, dance, and just have fun!

She Went From Dietetics to Wine Making – June 14


It’s all about chemistry. Cambria Wines’ Denise Shurtleff was studying for a degree in dietetics and food administration with the intention of focusing on a career in nutrition when she decided to apply for an internship at a winery. She never looked back, and the chemistry of winemaking became her calling.

Cambria Estate Winemaker Denise Shurtleff

Denise spent 16 years working at Corbett Canyon Vineyards as Winemaker and Winery Manager before joining Cambria Estate Winery in 1999 as Assistant Winemaker. Today she’s Head Winemaker.


Located in Santa Barbara County, Cambria is part of Jackson Family Estates. Jess Jackson and his wife, Barbara Banke acquired what was then called Tepusquet Vineyard in 1987 and renamed it “Cambria,” the Roman word for “Wales,” a nod to the family’s heritage. Today, Barbara runs Cambria with her two daughters, Katie and Julia Jackson. The winery is located on the Santa Maria Bench located on eastern edge of the Santa Maria Valley AVA. This area is kissed by cool fog, ocean breezes and a long slow growing season for the estate grown grapes, most notably Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, as well as Pinot Gris and Syrah. Cambria has been certified sustainable since 2009.
