All life begins in the soil. How can you cultivate a regenerative future?
“We have a relationship to everything in nature, we are part of nature. The trees, the water, the marshes, lakes, those things all have spirits. When you harvest a plant you’re not only harvesting food, you are harvesting part of that spirit, and when it is taken into your body it becomes part of you.” We have a tendency of of separating ourselves from the earth. In a culture that is surrounded by more concrete than trees, we can lose sight of our connectedness and our responsibility to the planet and plants that we rely on for life. “When our time comes to leave this earth, we go back, our spirits go on and our bodies return to feed the earth from which it came.”
Celebrating the true essence of carrot cake, AKA the carrots! Have you ever eaten a carrot so sweet that it felt like dessert? I have. Flavor starts with the soil and sourcing ingredients from farmers who are dedicated to regenerative agriculture practices is the best way to ensure flavor, nutrition, and a green economy.
Your genes do not determine your health destiny. We are multidimentional being and physical health is not influenced soley by the physical but by the state of our emotional, psychological, spiritual and biological bodies.
This chapter of my life journey began with a prayer, a plane ticket to France and an Astrocartography map. Anytime I’m asked my plans or purpose for this trip all I can do it smile and say, “At this moment, the Universe through divine guidance has brought me to you, to this place and I am here to listen and be invited into the experience I was meant to have.”
Yes, I know it sounds crazy but so is life… Here’s how I ended up in Cambodia…
The rainy days painted a romantic portrait of Bordeaux France as I wandered through the cobble stone streets to be filled with beauty, art and inspiration. The local markets, personable fashion, delicious wine and appreciation for plants. I found a few special gems, sustainable and ethically backed businesses, restaurants, and communities inspiring more then just a random american woman.
We cannot out run ourselves. Sometime the illusion of changing places to change ourselves can be haunting. We seek something external to transform our experience of life when in fact we must fully transform ourselves before we can fully move into changing our experience of life.
Spending the end of the year in Europe and creating space for taking inventory of the year and intention for the new one to come. 2018 was a year of exponential internal growth. So many people I have talked to have gone through the thick of it in 2018, things that were hidden and unconscious were brought to the surface forcing them to be addressed and course corrected. Attitudes changed from judgement to acceptance and integration. While being in France these lessons I have learned have resurfaced and tested, here’s how I’m navigating through and getting clarity on selfworth and personal mission.
A few years ago was infected with an obsession for mushrooms, wild foods, herbs, cooking and growing. I am dedicated to supporting local businesses and eco-conscious entrepreneurs which is why I have chosen to feature Forest to Fork, and founder Mike Kempenich who is dedicated to making wild foods and mushrooms accessible to everyone!
