Herbal Basics

What many people consider weeds are actually quite healing! This class will introduce you to herbal medicine—learn about 6 common herbs that may be growing in your yard that are great for relaxation. We’ll also discuss information on the importance of incorporating herbs into our daily routines and how to safely ingest them.

Mindfulness 101

We have the power to avoid all the negativity on the news, social media, and advertising distractions. We can avoid feeling overwhelmed and become a beacon of hope without a lot of work. How can you make mindfulness a daily practice in your hectic life? Repetition is how we form habits, whether good or bad. Mindfulness is no different. We’ll discuss gaining control of your life with ease and will practice a simple 5-minute meditation.

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.

An architect creates a detailed blueprint before building begins. The foundation is the first thing a builder puts in place. Food, meditation, and herbs are just a few of the pieces of the blueprint you’ll need. Join me in a few classes and let’s build your healthy foundation! <3

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.
