I got a special place in my heart for people who make community happen. But I got an extra special place in my heart for females who make community happen.
I'm a big twitter fan. When used purposefully and intentionally, like any social media technology, it has the ability keep you connected and inspired. Twitter has done wonders for the raw food and holistic health community. It makes me smile ear to ear to know that there are so many folks keeping in touch with each other on a daily basis via Twitter (facebook, gi2mr, rawfu and other sites are great too).
Of course, nothing beats in person interaction and the presence of a physical community. That's why this weekend I'm so happy to see many the folks that follow each other online meet together at the Raw Spirit Festival in Santa Barbra.
Since I can't be there in person to share in the physical manifestation of community, I'm doing the next best thing. Following the daily happenings of the festival via Twitter. If you want to do the same, I highly suggest you follow the following people to see how their lovely festival experience is going.
Tweeting the Raw Spirit Festival
P.S. If you are a healer, coach or just someone looking for a dope headshot, I highly recommend you contact Jeff aka Rawtographer. He'll be at the Rawspirit festival this week and he's doing his thing!
