Inside Stories:

Isn’t it satisfying to arrange, assemble, and produce? It’s amazing the beauty that emerges when vision and craftsmanship dovetail together. This issue of American Lifestyle magazine is a feast for those who love to create. 

The world-renowned Pimentel and Sons Guitarmakers is a family affair, an enterprise that Lorenzo Pimentel started in 1951. His sons proudly continue the legacy of exceptional craftsmanship, attention to detail, and innovation in their Albuquerque shop.
Embroidery artist Sarah K. Benning uses a needle and thread to create bold and whimsical pieces of art on fabric. Botanicals, especially her houseplants, are often used as inspiration, as well as photographs from her travels.
Echoview Fiber Mill, located in Weaverville, North Carolina, began as a place for farmers to bring their wool to be processed. Today, the mill also buys some of the wool to create its own beautiful items, like clothing, rugs, hats, and even teapot warmers. Its mission of sustainability is at the core of the business, as it focuses on environmentally friendly practices. 

How very lucky the world is to have creators of beautiful goods, art, and music.

spiritual wounds. We shut down and stuckness, panic, numbness and grief overwhelm our



I hear you.

I feel you.

I see you.


How do we heal?

We reconnect to our roots, we remember how to listen and feel, and we start to heal our 

physical and spiritual trauma. I help you do this through Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, 

somatic therapy and reiki.
