Linda Binette’s education at Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics (SWINA) brought more gifts to her life than she could have ever imagined. From the moment Linda toured the SWINA campus, she was confident it was the school for her.

By Melanie Albert, Guest Blogger I invite you to sit quietly, close your eyes, take a deep inhale and deeply exhale out through your mouth a few times. Now, quietly read the following and visualize your own eating memories. Go back to your very first memory of eating. What did you eat? Where were you? Who were you eating with? Who prepared the food?
