#ConsciousHoliday Contest: 12 Days of Giving

Between shopping for the ideal gift, cooking the "perfect" holiday meal, vacation traveling and booze-y office parties, it’s easy to get caught up in the materialism of the season and lose sight of the true Spirit of Christmas/Hannukah/Kwanza/[Insert Your Religious Practice Here]. Regardless of the hype, to us, the holiday season is an opportunity to celebrate Spirit, and to express the love, peace, and universal brotherhood that unites us all.

As a step in that direction, we’re hosting #consciousholiday, a twelve day virtual party celebrating the mindful side of the season. Each day between now and December 13th, we’ll share our favorite ways to be more conscious.  With vegan recipes, eco-chic gift and style tips, relaxing wellness getaways and spiritual best practices, we'll shed a light on what helps us nourish our minds, bodies and souls during the holidays.

We want to hear from you! Share one or more ways that help you to be more conscious during the holidays on social media (by using hashtag #consciousholiday and posting on our facebook page or twitter feed), and you could win a stocking filled with some of our favorite conscious treats, cosmetics, and goodies (valued at over $250)!

Each post counts as a unique entry, so tweet away! Remember, be sure to spread the conscious cheer by no later than 11:59PM EST December 13th using hashtag #consciousholiday and posting to our facebook page or twitter feed. Not only will you light a candle for others to be more conscious this season, it’ll let us know where to send the goodies!

Happy #ConsciousHoliday!
