Mary Coakley of Far Out Pizza

Groovy and Far Out. Well, I will tell you that traveling the distance for that slice of pizza was well worth it. Mary, along with her partner Matt and friend of the family, Josh, have really created a little Gem of a place. Mary is a pleasure to chat with too.

It was obvious that weaving fabric touches the very …

Cass Hepburn – Energy Worker

Magically delicious. One of the directions I am following is the health and wellness conscious shift that is happening. Since I have moved to Sooke, Cass and I have ran into each other over 25 times in places where it really became clear we were supposed to know each other. Our energies were aligned. Cass carries a very grounded and luscious kind of energy that …
