Interview with Kelley Sibley

June 28, 2016

Living Wholly is excited to connect more deeply with the inspiring, determined and radiant, Kelley Sibley, health expert, mama, and creator of Bamboo Juices.

The idea for an organic, cold pressed juice shop was the manifestation of Bamboo’s CEO, Kelley Sibley's, 15 years of experience studying the diets and cultures of people across six continents. Through her personal experience and studies, she learned there are a few basic principles that enable people to maximize their health and longevity that include a plant-based diet, and eating in moderation. Taking these principles, the idea for Bamboo was born in her mother's kitchen to provide her community dietary options that mimic those of the world’s healthiest people through fresh, delicious health tonics and elixirs.

How are you serving the world and contributing your gifts?
Most importantly, I would say inspiring people to get healthy. I own a juice company in Atlanta, Georgia. My knowledge and passion for health are teaching and inspiring others to take health into their own hands, inspiring them to want to be healthy, to see what food and juice can do to help them become their best selves.
 
What does living wholly mean to you?
I think living wholly is being the best version of you, so for me the best version of myself is the healthiest, the most authentic, the most calm and intuitive.
 
What are your top 3 tips for living a healthy, fulfilling life?
1. Definitely meditation.
2. Cold pressed-juice.
3. A mostly plant-based diet
 
What is your self-care practice?
My self-care rituals that are very important are juicing every day, daily meditation and daily physical exercise. I have a baby so long walks, bike rides and running.  
 
What teachers have you worked with and/or currently work with to inspire and support your evolution in consciousness?
My greatest teacher right now is my Course in Miracles teacher. We meet every week, and we talk about the Course in Miracles. Currently she is my biggest support. In the past it has been world travel, which to me is a Course in Miracles on steroids. You see how other people live and you get a sense of how there is something bigger than yourself and of how valuable life can be.
 
What has been the most challenging experience in your life that turned out to be the most meaningful opportunity to your life's path?
I used to be really unhealthy while feeling defeated + exhausted with the overall sense of what am I doing on this planet. This health fear led me to become the best version of myself:::super healthy, educated on having a health body, and to creating Bamboo Juices.
 
What is your super-natural gift?
I operate really quickly, like get sh*t done so fast. I will get things done incredibly fast, days before anyone else is doing it. I think this is the reason I have been successful.
 
Who inspires you?
My baby, she is so inspiring. She inspires me to be in the moment until I find the awe in the things that I don’t pay attention to anymore. She is great teacher to teach me to stop and find amazement in a flower or in a roly poly.


 
What music are you currently listening to?
I am not a big music person. I love podcasts. I love information. I will listen to music when I meditate like gongs or Kundalini music.
 
What is your present state of mind?
I feel super excited! I am working right now on launching a national brand for Bamboo. I have been on calls all morning so I am pumped on that.
 
What are you reading right now?
A Course in Miracles, The Success Principles by Jack Canfield, and I always have the magazine wellbeing journal around, I have it next to me right now.
 
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
Indonesia. I love beaches and surfing and I love South East Asia, I just love that region of the world.
 
What has been your most memorable revelation while traveling?
In India, the sacred place on the Ganges River where people travel from all over India to bring dead bodies. I was there and they burn 2 thousand bodies a day, so seeing the mound of dead bodies was a moment of –there must be something bigger in myself. I just couldn’t wrap my head around bodies just being there, like they didn’t matter. There must be something else. It was a firm realization that made me believe that there is more.

What are your “must haves” while traveling?
Nothing that is the great thing about traveling! You don’t need anything.

What is your favorite quote?
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world” -Gandhi
