With warm weather upon us my chocolate cravings have been long gone. I always felt that the warming treat has its place in colder months but that it was completely out of place for my Pitta nature in the summer. Also the more present I become in my body, the more sensitive I am to the stimulating nature of chocolate ( I am talking about the really dark varieties without processed sugar. In milk chocolate with lots of processed ingredients, the stimulating effect can come mostly from sugar, not the cacao itself. The quality of that stimulation will be very different).
Over the past year I have been diving deeper in studying ayurveda and doing a mentorship program in Clinical Nutrition with Liz Lipski. Both programs have been so extensive and time-consuming that I haven’t really shared much of what I have been learning with you. Lots of things learned and lots more to learn. So much that I don’t even know what to start with…
Acting in the world of uncertainty: What to do and what to eat when contradicting theories are confusing the hell out of you
Yesterday while lounging outside with interesting books my husband asked me: “Did you know that only 4% of the universe is covered with matter that we understand and the rest is dark matter?”
Are you overwhelmed with conflicting information, lack inspiration, and yearning for a deep transformation?
Can you relate to the this?
We danced, we watched stars from a hot tub and then jumped into ice cold pool, we meditated and prayed, we had long conversations over tea and red wine, we danced to awaken the energy of earth, water, fire and air. There were so many moments where I felt an overflowing sense of gratitude and love. I feel so lucky to experience the closeness, love, warmth, and appreciation that women can provide for each other.
In my year end review and 2015 visioning I got a recurrent theme of SPACE and STILLNESS coming up.
I love all of these topics and think they are very important but starting today I won’t be writing about them anymore.
P.S. I’m not the only one serving up wisdom at the Academy. From health, nutrition and fitness to creativity, productivity, spirituality, relationships and parenting, hundreds of extraordinary teachers are sharing their expert advice on everything that goes into optimizing our lives – all in one place!

Summer is the time of play and fun but what I am hearing from many of my clients and readers is that you are too tired to enjoy it. Your energy is low and you would rather stay at home and watch TV because going outside is tiring.
