What a summer it has been for us at Soul Being! As we return to routine in this new month (we refuse to concede that the summer season is over yet!), we welcome the stabilizing of schedules and the fresh motivation that always accompanies this time of year. While much of our activity over the last few months has been internal reorganization, we are very much looking forward to shifting our focus back to community engagement and execution on our 2019 goals. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this message for a few highlights of upcoming events and community activity!
Our membership footprint continues to grow throughout New England, with practitioners in Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts joining us this month. Expansion is a welcome trend, as we are also growing our team to best support you, as well as investing in technology development to meet the changing needs of the market. Of course, we are also spending plenty of time and effort fundraising to make this happen quickly and seamlessly. We continue to pursue and grow our partnerships in the industry, and are excited to be participating in upcoming events with some of them over the next few months.
We’ve published a Healthcare Savings Account (HSA) reference guide specifically geared toward wellness professionals that we would like to bring to your attention, as it could be helpful to your business strategy. A quick <10 minute read, we’ve attempted to boil down the basics of the HSA mechanism and why it is relevant and important for all preventative healthcare practitioners to understand. Access the full resource here!

IHCM HAS MOVED!
After long years of planning and dreaming, Integrative Health Center of Maine is proud to announce the opening of our brand-new medical center in Cumberland! Located at 15 Skyview Drive right off Route 1, our building features energy-efficient construction, a beautiful permaculture campus, a large multipurpose room for classes, and an outdoor waiting porch with rocking chairs overlooking a native plant meadow. We are right across the street from the Friends School and just north of the European Bakery, 12 minutes from Portland and right off 95 and 295. We look forward to a gala Grand Opening event sometime in late August or September, so stay tuned! We look forward to seeing you in the new center.
IHCM is also looking for new practitioners! We are opening our Integrative Medical Center in Cumberland July 2019. We are seeking a DO or LAc who would like to join a thriving integrative medical practice. Please spread the word and create your dream practice! Thank you and be well.

A reminder from our July newsletter:
Those of you in the Portland area may have noticed that our physical location has closed for the time being. As we have expanded geographically outside of Maine, we found that a physical space was not serving our evolving goals of maximizing the potential of this community. We have been blessed with organic growth that expands well beyond state lines, and we want to continue to foster this growth.
We have updated the “About Us” section of the website should you like to read more about our evolving mission, and we would also be happy to provide any additional information on demand at firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to sharing in a new season of wellness and progress together – thank you again for being a part of our community.
