Elements of Ayurveda (Ayurveda 101)

Ayurveda is “the science of life” that honors us as the individuals we are. Forget counting calories, avoiding 90% of Nature’s crops, and Yo-Yo dieting. We’ll discover balance in food, exercise, and senses.

The 6-foot Rule

Reading Time: 2 minutes Show up. Stick around. Think of how others live in the realms outside of your bubble.

P.S. Posting liberal feelings and thoughts on social media does little to progress a movement. In my observations, it stems from feelings of guilt over the privilege we’ve had throughout our lives. It’s apparent those screaming the most for radical reform are the very people incentivized their entire lives. If this concept rubs you the wrong way, I urge you to ask how you’ve benefitted from the system prior to asking others to review their status.  

Zeniterranean Farro (Recipe)

Reading Time: 2 minutes This is one of those recipes I created last week. It’s “Zen,” because there are no quantities listed. Your lifestyle and eating goals are personal—add the amount of carbs, protein, and veggies that work for you. Substitute ingredients with what you have on hand. Most importantly, have fun!

And give farro a try! It’s a whole grain with a nutty taste, somewhat similar to barley. I love using it instead of freekah (young green wheat), when I can’t find it at the store. Farro is delicious, and so was this recipe I’m passing along to you!

Mindfulness Exercise for Anxiety

Reading Time: 2 minutes In the past month, I’ve created a new technique to combat my anxiety/ fear/ depression. It was accidental at first (as many habits are)-it soon became a conscious game-the angel versus the devil of the mind.

It’s distraction through gratitude.

As soon as I slip down the rabbit hole, I immediately find one thing to be grateful for—sometimes it’s basic… “I’m grateful for the air I breathe.”

But since gratitude is a daily waking practice, I challenge myself… it’s about increasing brain health and creating better neural pathways.

Dehumanizing Compassion

Reading Time: 4 minutes I see a direct correlation between dehumanization and Compassion. Compassion is a main theme running through all of my courses—I believe showing Compassion for Nature equates to Compassion for humans.  But this isn’t always the case, as our Ego and the attachment to ideals, often leaves us *slightly* less Compassionate for those who disagree with us. (Don Miguel Ruiz discusses this in depth in his book, “The Five Levels of Attachment.”)

In the last year, I’ve noticed a frightening movement from global political leaders. Dehumanize All. (Yes, I believe there is a movement towards the NWO and there’s a global agenda at play. Research this outside of google and see what search results you find.)

  • Wear a face covering.
  • Avoid social contact.
  • Fear germs.

A Personal Tribute

Reading Time: 2 minutes Today, in 1951, this man was born… he died 27 years ago, at the young age of 47. As I approach the age of his death, it’s both surreal and more devastating. We were estranged at the time of his passing, a choice of mine that’s still difficult to live with. His battle with depression, mania, abuse, and addiction ultimately cost him everything. I watched a brilliant, funny, talented man slowly destroy his family and life. His choices in life made him not-so-popular with my mom’s friends and family… but if you love all I’ve become “despite my challenging childhood,” please remember he is 50% of what made me outgoing, strong, and opinionated.

3-Year Anniversary

Reading Time: 2 minutes We’re forever grateful for the life we had and the people we met in Maine. They strengthened us in ways we never thought possible. They gave us “flatlanders from away” a chance. We miss you all.

We don’t regret a second of our adventure; we’d do it all over again.

My Holiday Wish for You…

Reading Time: < 1 minute

I urge you to consider the dangers of the storm that’s been created: a world where there is no right answer. (So it seems.)
Without that, there’s no resolution. When two sides dig in their heels and there’s no healthy debate, how can there be a compromise or negotiation?
There is no returning to the past normal. We don’t know what the future holds. Our actions today determine the future of mankind. We’re at a critical tipping point that has little to do with a virus.

Learning to Witness…

Reading Time: < 1 minute

3 years ago today, we arrived to 2’ of snow in Maine. It was the hardest winter we endured… grieving and buried in foot after foot of snow. We didn’t know what our backyard looked like until April, when the snow finally melted.
Over the last 3 years, we shed toxic relationships—business, personal, even our toxic selves.
