Happy belated Earth Day (it was yesterday)!! But every day can be one of celebrating this amazing planet.
Today, if only for a moment, touch something from the Earth.
Perhaps just the ground itself.
Maybe place your hands on the Earth or take off your shoes and walk barefoot on...
Happy Easter, Ramadan, or belated Passover! In the northern hemisphere it is time for rebirth. Nature shows signs of this as wild greens appear in your yard. If you are feeling the longing for some wild nourishment in alignment with the season, I have just the thing for you!
WILD GREENS PESTO!
Happy April! I have created something new this Spring and I want to make sure you know about it!
After years of offering seasonal One Habit to Thrive Challenges, I am excited to share something new and exciting: a condensed and potent 2.5 hour workshop!
I am seeing...
Try saying this to yourself out loud as an affirmation/intention:
“Fire transform me,
Lead me to my passions,
Fire transform me,
Lead me to my passions,
I choose life, yes!
I choose courage,
To dance among the flames.”
Doesn't that feel amazing?
This is a song we sometimes sing at the...
In Springtime we mostly want to focus on the bitter, astringent, and pungent tastes to help clear the liver and cleanse the tissues of the body.
However, every once in a while a sweet treat is nice. The best sweetener for Kapha season (Spring) is honey as it is warming and actually helps to clear...
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” Jiddu Krishnamurti
This quote has been resounding in my mind for weeks now. I find it to be incredibly poignant.
One of the ways I see that our society is “profoundly sick” is the lack of...
Spring is a great time to focus on re-inoculating the gut with living cultures to support a healthy microbiome. Many of us are told to take probiotic supplements, but eating homemade probiotic foods is even better.
"Fermented foods, as a group, are highly nutritious and digestible. Fermentation...
When Spring starts to warm our world, we can feel both inspired AND have a hard time getting out of the rut of “winter mode” (when we naturally eat more and are less active).
In Ayurveda, spring is considered one of the “joints in the seasons,” meaning a point...
As we round the bend of late Winter into Spring, I personally start looking forward to the Spring Detox. I love the lightness, clarity, and ease that it invites into all areas of my life. I also love the community that comes together for the Heartfelt Wellbeing Detoxes.
A detox is a defined time...
Our hearts experience so much over the course of our lives; elation, loss, love, gratitude, and heartbreak...
Mid February, when Valentine's Day arrives, is a great time to reinvigorate our connection with our hearts. Poetry is a great way to do that.
Whatever you make of this day, here is...
As the winter begins to shift from dry to wet weather, (or in Ayurvedic terms, from Vata to Kapha season), it's a great time to clear out the accumulated gunk from the deeper depths of winter.
We will be doing a community Spring Detox soon (mark your calendar for March 20-April...

Habit triggers are what make our habits actually happen. A list of them can be found above.
Once you understand how important habit triggers are, you can change...
It might be an unpopular opinion, but I believe that health care should be inspiring, fun, and full of curiosity. Being in a body is an incredible experience!
What we currently call "health care" is actually "sick care" because our systems are built on the premise that we don't do anything until...
We just had the first full moon of the new year on Friday and I hope the glow is resonating within you as you embark on this new calendar year.
I really appreciate hearing from those of you who have been enjoying the "Stroll vs. Scroll" Challenge. The week of the Challenge has ended but you...
