Hi!


hangingoutyogafarm-1116028

Coming off of another phenomenal retreat weekend, I am touched by the stars and hearts in the students’ eyes as they head off to their homes.  I am continually amazed by the coming together of so many souls and lives — first a bit apprehensive, and as the weekend unfolds each heart slowly opens and offers itself up to a collective experience of truth, kindness, laughter, relaxation and community.  

It dawned on me while guiding a long and luscious meditation and root chakra practice on Saturday that “we need YOU”.  This means that the world needs the divine feminine energy — the conscientious, rich, and nourishing energy that comes from awakening your sleepy and shy soul.  So, if you can’t make it to the YogaFarm for a retreat or daycation, my greatest hope is that you are doing something — anything — to clear your heart, shine the mirror, and awaken to your true nature.  You are just so marvelous, I wouldn’t want you to miss that part.  Ever.

All this talk about Love and Truth makes me hungry.  So, how about we fill your belly with some of that Luv?

After each retreat, I have so many scrumptious treats left behind to nourish my family here. Tonight, for example, I pulled out of the freezer a few frozen banana chunks that had been cooked in ghee and cardamom and served with one of our breakfasts.  I made an incredible little “dessert drink” for my Love and I out of these little jewels.  

It was so incredibly delicious, I couldn’t help but share (the recipe I mean.  I ate the smoothie already.  Sorry!)

Banana Coconut Cacao Smoothie

1/2 cup frozen ripe bananas (you know the ones that turn brown on your counter — peel them, throw them in an airtight container, and freeze them)

2 cups organic rice milk

1 heaping teaspoon coconut milk

1 heaping teaspoon raw almond butter

3 dates, pitted

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

pinch of Himalayan salt

1 heaping teaspoon raw cacao powder

1 heaping teaspoon raw cacao nibs

Blend it all together in a Vitamix (or the likes) and eat!  

I get soon excited about these things that are delicious enough for dessert, filling enough for a meal, and nutritious enough to start your day with as breakfast!  

Enjoy!  

And hope to see you at the YogaFarm
