It’s officially soup season. Summer held on as long as it could here in Oklahoma (it was 90 degrees last weekend!), but this morning I turned the heater on for the first time since early spring. It was one of those mornings where you just want to linger in bed as long as you can because it’s far too cozy under the covers and cold feet on …Keep Reading

I never thought I would say this but…I’m tired of traveling. As a Sagittarius (double that is, sun + rising!), my world doesn’t feel quite right when I’m settled in one place for more than a few weeks.

And those synchronistic encounters with strangers …Keep Reading
Last week I was rummaging through a box of old keepsakes and came across a journal I kept while I was living in Paris in 2010. While I was there, my mom and I took a mother-daughter trip to Morocco, an adventure of memories I still cherish dearly.

In between long days of teaching and practicing yoga, this recipe has become my go-to for an easy, energizing lunch. The mix of cooked and raw ingredients provides a feeling of grounding nourishment without feeling heavy or weighed down in the afternoon. It balances flavors of sweet, salty, astringent and bitter – making this a perfect Ayurvedic meets macrobiotic-friendly meal. And more importantly, it meets the …Keep Reading
Valentine’s Day, a time where we focus on love and our immediate relationships. How often do we get caught up in feeling unloved, in disliking ourselves for who we truly are because we get lost in expectations of what we hope others should feel for us? What if this year we ditched those expectations. What if we focused our energy towards loving ourselves fully, loving others unconditionally, and becoming …Keep Reading

I woke up this morning to time frozen still. A thick layer of ice caressed the trees and blanketed the grass, and even though the sun had risen the world still seemed to sleep. Winter was here. On its eve, solstice had ushered in its wintry beauty and a deep sense of calm over the city. This is what I love most about the holidays. That comforting sense of hibernation, …Keep Reading
