I was craving a nourishing meal like this all week. Specifically, I was daydreaming about lentils and tomatoes. So this delicious and wholesome bolognese was born! This meal is all about warmth and comfort, and you’ll really feel that the whole way through. The aroma in the air while it’s cooking, the loaded taste, and warmth in your belly, will make you feel SO GOOD. Read More

 The consolidation of industrial agriculture has not only narrowed down the number of corporations involved in monopoly over the system but also the number of commodities, with less of a focus on diversity and quality of crops and animal species, and a greater emphasis on yield and cost efficiency.

We breathe 

And the weight of the breath 

Takes with it the heaviness 

The stagnation that’s stored  Read More

It’s morning again 

The day is waking up

The earth turning enough 

So the sun blesses the sky Read More

There is depth because there are vast heights. They were made by rifts in and collisions of earth that created junctions and chasms in the crust, and mountains in the sky. Read More

It’s a feat of nature to walk through life asleep
To one day awaken so suddenly
The abrupt and rude emergence
From outside the moment and into presence Read More

I moved the five loads of laundry that was spread across the floor off to one side so that we’d have a space to sit. A mosquito danced in the air and disappeared from my sight, though for a minute or two stayed on my mind while I thought about how irritating it could be during the meditation; that thought slipped away as fast as it had popped up.

Approaching the next major vertex of my life: the converging point between past, present, and future. In reality, this converging point is transient and moves wherever we do, but there’s something deeply meaningful about the oncoming passage through time. Though I may not have the right words or am running on partial inclinations not yet fully formed, I feel the call toward a rite, a ritual, an initiation into a power that has been welling and brewing within for what seems like this entire lifetime.

The sky was somewhat parted. Dark, blue and grey clouds cast their shadow from the North, while to the South a golden light lit up the leaves that litter the earth. I must have looked up at the perfect moment, because the combination of dark and light mixed perfectly to create an almost impossibly lucid backdrop. Read More

I first found Kundalini yoga about 11 years ago, when I was turning 20. It was a radical practice, and I had a love-hate relationship with it. If you’ve tried this practice out you’ll know it’s a challenge for every aspect of your being. It took me a while to understand that I was constantly coming up against myself, pushing up against my fears, attachments, ideas of normalcy or right and wrong. Read More

The simultaneous presence and de-rooting that occurs gives a special insight into a nature normally hidden by the illusion of separateness. The opportunities to understand and solidify experience become apparent and rise with great speed. Articulation comes with confidence and ease so that words flow fluidly without thought from a deep wellspring. Less rigidity allows for abstractions otherwise impossible, and Faraday’s lines bend and skew like Einstein’s mind. Resistance and desire to put up a fight against ones own confabulations fall away, and so does the solidity of the earth. Read More
