April is the month of new beginnings, rebirths and a time to look forward to all the good things yet to come. In this vein, I am excited to introduce you to our newest addition to the Natural Awakenings family: Rebecka Lassen. Rebecka is completing her education in the Integrative Health and Healing Certificate from Anoka-Ramsey Community College by interning at Natural Awakenings this spring. Utilizing the skills she’s gained through her education as well as her love of writing, she will interview six of our advertisers and write articles that will be featured over the next several months beginning in May.

Rebecka is an experienced energy healer, life-long learner and veteran, having served 12 years active duty in the Army National Guard, including a year in Iraq. She is the mother of six-year-old Victor and four-year-old Lily and wife to Nathan. Rebecka is completing her associates degree at Anoka and is currently enrolled in Metro State, earning her bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing.

In the next few months, she will also be releasing her book, Socially Accepted Intuition, in which she shares how the reader can gain self-acceptance and learn about their true self. She shares her personal journey of feeling like an outsider growing up in a small town in North Dakota and the lessons she learned to strengthen her own intuition, allowing her to find her true purpose. Be sure to watch for the announcement of the book release in an upcoming issue of Natural Awakenings.

Wishing you wellness!
