heartspark Adventures

heartspark AdventuresCome to a heartspark Adventure to meet and connect with the heartspark community while engaging in something active and fun.

heartspark Adventures are brought to you in partnership with Mary Cecchini and LivingBig.org. Mary brings her personal mantra of “living big” to life by crafting opportunities for the heartspark community to live big, locally.

We’ve pedaled a Brewcycle through downtown Portland in search of beer and pizza, hiked through Forest Park while doing yoga, and scaled mountains by indoor rock climbing. Check out all of those and more in our blog archives. Whatever it is, it’s always fun and you are invited to join us.

Come to be active. Come to try something new. Come to laugh. Come to connect with the heartspark community and most importantly, come to live big!

Deliciously Seasonal: Farm to table foodie surprises for the holidays

Wednesday, October 25 from 5:45-8:15 pm

Wouldn’t it be lovely to start off the holiday season – which we all know begins on Halloween, right? – with some healthy, beautiful, delicious and budget-friendly recipes that are simple and maybe a bit surprising?

Lucky for us, heartsparklers Mary Cecchini of Living Big and Shannon Sims of FoodArtLove have teamed up to a create a special evening where we’ll glean expert advice about locally sourced food, taste-test some mystery fruits and vegetables and watch as Shannon demonstrates a few simple dishes to prepare this holiday season using ingredients that are available at your local farmers market.

Come hungry! And come ready to arm yourself with simple, irresistible, entertaining recipes that will boost immunity, reduce stress levels – and protect your waistline! – through the holidays. This is definitely an Adventure you’ll want to have before the holiday season kicks off.
