How to Illuminate Your Intuitive Dashboard

On the healing path, a few well placed words of wisdom can sometimes trigger a much needed “a-ha” deep within that brings everything into focus. One of the most powerful lessons that I’ve been taught is this: A true healer doesn’t actually heal us; he or she simply helps us remove the blocks that are inhibiting our ability to heal ourselves. The philosophy that our individual organisms prefer to be in healthy equilibrium and can often times spontaneously cure themselves ... [Read more...]

Do You Know the Origins of Your Food?

What do you feel when you bite into a piece of dark chocolate? Does your palate explode in ecstasy? Do memories of warm holiday evenings and the scent of your mother’s kitchen wash through your body? We naturally and easily associate foods with the environment in which we consume them and the people who share those foods with us, but all too often we’re disconnected from their origins. We might be shocked when we read articles about school children thinking milk comes from supermarkets, or ... [Read more...]

The Ancient Art Of Chakra Bathing

Okay, I have to admit—it took me a while to get on board with my chakras. First of all, they don’t teach us about our energy systems in science class. Second, we can’t see them, so they’re not obvious parts of our bodies like, say, our hands. But the more I learned about chakras, and the more I got in tune with my body, the more I realized you can feel them. Sometimes it can feel like a cool breeze, a subtle vibration or a warm tingling sensation somewhere along your spine. You can ... [Read more...]

The Dalai Lama’s Morning Prayer

When I was reading the prayer below the first time, it sent a course of energy through me from head to toe. Sharing this with you is an honor. Written by Shantideva, a Buddhist monk of the Mahayana tradition that lived around 700 AD, he was a devoted practitioner who authored the Bodhicaryavatara or Bodhisattva Way of Life. Some say that His Holiness the Dalai Lama considers this text to be THE source for developing altruism in your character and the “Spirit of Awakening.” Importantly, it ... [Read more...]

3 Wild Herbs For Lucid Dreaming

Do you remember what you dreamt about last night?  How about the night before? For thousands of years, we humans have placed a ton of value on the content of these bedtime reveries, deriving inner wisdom and even premonitions from them. Dreaming feels like a birthright, an extra sense that allows us to process both rationally and spiritually while our body rests up. They are one of behavioral science’s biggest mysteries, with no agreed-upon theory of their origin and specific purpose. For ... [Read more...]

A Healing Soup To Warm Your Soul

Two days ago, I was having a tough afternoon. Without any thinking, I found myself walking into the kitchen, pulling out a bunch of vegetables and herbs, and filling a large metal pot with water. Sometimes the heart knows what the mind does not. Cooking is one of the most grounding and satisfying practices I know of. Might be because I grew up in a restaurant, but I have a feeling it’s something much deeper than that. When the world outside seems overwhelming, or you’re just feeling a ... [Read more...]

The Shamanic Healing Diet

The Shamanic Healing Diet In the Amazon rainforest, there exists a shamanic healing diet that is often prescribed to people who are sick. It is believed by many native healers that the delicate compounds in each of the herbs that are being prescribed to a patient, including the Banisteriopsis caapi vine (one of the ingredients in ayahuasca), can be easily diluted and destroyed if the patient eats too heavy a diet. That said, this sacred meal plan is often an absolute must. This diet, or ... [Read more...]

A Sunrise Prayer to Start Your Day

I came across the Taoist prayer below at just the right time a couple weeks back – on a morning that felt particularly challenging. As a global tribe, many of us struggle to maintain our sense of sanity in themidst of the chaos, suffering and unrest that is unfortunately part of the reality we meet in our newsfeed, and in our cities and towns. Yes, it’s important that we acknowledge the truth of what is happening in the world around us, but we also need to give ourselves the space (and ... [Read more...]
