My love for midwifery began at the end of 2000 and it has only deepened over the years. I was a hospital doula for a short period of time before a dear friend gave me Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin. While reading this book, I had one of the strongest AH HA moments of my life and I knew without a doubt that I had to support, educate and empower women during their childbearing year. I am a Colorado Registered Midwife RM and a Certified Professional Midwife, which is a national designation from my MEAC accredited school, Fl school of Traditional Midwifery. Stacie Meredith Midwifery Services LLC became registered in 2007 and it has been an honor to work with so many wonderful families over the years. Read more>>
I was first introduced to bodywork when I was a “techie” traveling on the road with a performance group. The road life was not nourishing to my body. Extremely long work hours, physically demanding tasks, lack of sleep, and very unhealthy food did damage to my body. I was in my early 20’s but was already feeling old and my blood pressure was measuring so high. Something HAD to change! I awoke to my potential to change with an appointment with a chiropractor/massage therapist. He integrated techniques that were right for me, from traditional Chinese energy medicine to chiropractic adjustments, and finally a massage. My sense of vitality was sky high! Read more>>
Together with our partners, the Larners, we run a family of businesses focused on cannabis. FreeWorld Genetics focuses on marijuana breeding and genetics, producing novel strains of flower, seeds, and clones. And FreeWorld Medicinals focuses on hemp cultivation and CBD products. Our two families met by chance over a decade ago. Soon after marrying, Sam and I moved west from Atlanta, GA and never looked back. Austin and Annie were some of the first Coloradans we met and a deep friendship quickly kindled. Before long, Friday night meant dinner with the Epsteins and Larners. Read more>>
I never thought I would end up living in the United States. My desire to come to do the Masters in Contemplative Psychotherapy was sparked while living in Colombia and doing a short program in Transpersonal Psychology with a therapist that had graduated from Naropa University. I heard about Boulder for the first time then and found about the Contemplative psychotherapy program which was exactly what I was looking for as I envisioned a therapy practice where I could integrate Buddhist teachings with clinical work. Holding that vision in mind, I embarked on a one-year trip to India which had been a dream I had since I was in high school, thinking “I need to do this first”. Unknowingly, that “trip” was the beginning of another long long journey. Read more>>
I dropped out of high school when I was 15 to have my daughter. I received my diploma before she was born through a small alternative high school, then I decided to attend massage school where I earned my Associate of Occupational Studies Degree in Massage Therapy from the Colorado School of Healing Arts. I started my massage therapy practice in 2003. I had a private practice in Longmont, CO that allowed me to be a mother, girl scout leader and a room mom while still building my career. I have also received advanced training in the following alternative therapies: Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy, Neuromuscular Massage Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Trauma Touch Intensive, Hydrostone, Prenatal Massage, Applied Kinesiology, Aromatherapy, Second Degree Reiki.
