A time to ignite our inner light, evaluate, focus our dreams & visions for the new season to come.

A new day to remind us that ... We are here to commune with the universe,

beyond time and space,

here in this place

where the all of the all is open to us

Connect and prepare for the Autumn





To live in this world you must be able

to do three things:

*to love what is mortal; *to hold it against your bones

*knowing your own life depends on it;

only then ... when you have the gift of strength,

when you encompass courage and wisdom

you will know when the time comes to let it go ... you let it go.


Connect and prepare for the Autumn

Warm foods, herbs and spices


Food is another essential component to balance the body, as it metabolizes your efforts from the inside, out. Here are a few simple guidelines to follow that will align your eating with the summer season:


Fall foods and herbs

  • It is important to eat three meals a day, preferably at the same time each day. Try to avoid skipping meals and sporadic grazing, and be sure to sit down while enjoying your food. Like all other lifestyle choices around this time, set a routine around eating.  Here are some insights to help guide your fall meal plan.

  • •Eat lots of warm soups. http://www.purewow.com/food/13-Vegetable-Soup-Recipes-Thatll-Warm-You-Right-Up?utm_medium=email&utm_source=national&utm_campaign=Dinner_Theater_2015_11_02&utm_content=Food_editorial

•Choose foods that are warm, cooked and moist. Avoid raw veggies and salads, as these are vata provoking.

•Eat two apples a day to aid with elimination.

•Drink warm tea of fresh ginger, cardamom and cinnamon. This will warm the body and enhance circulation and digestion. If not this tea, aim to drink some kind of warm beverage.

•Eat root vegetables to enhance your connection to the Earth.

•Sweet, salty and sour tastes are calming to vata.


Cherish the things that carry you forward ... let go of the things that hold you back.


Enjoy the Autumn ... Find the balance ... Maat
