How to Make Healing Kitchari

0

There are some foods that work well to balance the body in all seasons— kitchari, also known as khichdi or khichadi, is one of those. I love kitchari—and not just because it is a delicious and comforting, porridge-like blend of beans and rice that is easy to cook and digest. Kitchari has many nourishing and cleansing benefits, and is one of the few foods that provides both nourishment for the body and for digestion due to its spice combination. This makes kitchari a healing food that is ideal during stress, illness, pregnancy, change of seasons, and it is the primary…

Black and White

I had the dream in June 2015. I’d had them before. But not in black and white. My grandmother, who had passed away in 1994 made a spectacular appearance in a technicolor dream the night before she died. She’d taken me by the celestial hand, and we’d started our slow ascent. Up and up, we went, through worlds unknown. I recall the speed, as if we were flying through centuries, and not actual places. Up and up and up, until we arrived at a blue horizon, just like when the sea meets the sky, and we floated there a little…

The Year of Chopsticks

0

Chopsticks & Conscious Eating Go to any Asian-cuisine restaurant and the setting will usually include a pair of chopsticks. Most people dining in America, however, will not even attempt to use such tools, opting instead for a fork. White Westerners seem to be notoriously bad at balancing their food between two thin sticks as I learned one day when I sat down at a restaurant in Boston’s Chinatown. I had joined my Chinese-American roommate Li Huan for lunch and was the only non-Asian in the restaurant. When the food was served at our table, the entire restaurant watched as I…

NAMASTE !

0

Namaste! This is what is taught to a toddler in India to greet everyone who visits their home. The bewildered kid coyly, utters it in his or her cute gibberish manner and parents feel proud. Honestly speaking, it is just a respectable form of salutation to most of the people in India. The literal meaning is, “I bow to thee.” However, our wise ancestors did not just introduce it into our lives because we were short of a word for greeting; like everything, they put a lot of significance into the whole act of Namaste. Apart from salutation or bidding…

Does lack of sleep affect weight gain?

0

What is sleep? We all do it. Some struggle to get enough sleep while others doze off at the drop of a hat. Our bodies are made so that when we provide an optimal rest, we wake up feeling ready to take on the world with gusto. The night time is that optimal time, from 7-9 hours, where the body is fully able to relax, recharge, and revitalize itself for the upcoming day. Therefore, in the long run, it creates a healthy routine for a positive lifestyle, including a smaller waistline. That being said, could lack of sleep actually influence…

Recognizing Verbal Abuse So You Can Take Steps to End It.

0

By Holly E. Messick, author of Karmic Dance–A Spiritual Journey through Verbal Abuse During the first twelve years of my second marriage, my husband and I were involved in a verbally abusive relationship.  Because I had experienced ongoing verbal abuse since childhood, I was unaware of what was occurring in my marriage as it was unfolding.  It wasn’t until we’d been together 10 years and the abuse began spiraling out of control, that I sought the help of a counselor who made me conscious of the nature of this verbally abusive relationship.  Even with my new-found knowledge and awareness, I…

Confessions of a Yoga Teacher

0

If it was required that every yoga instructor provide a mission statement, I would engrave this quote in my studio floor, in big, bold letters and bright colors. I would encourage each and every student to embrace this mission as our joint venture. I would motivate my students to carry this notion, just as they carry their mats, from one place to another, and with inspiration and enthusiasm. “Yoga is our natural state. We just have to rediscover it. We had it as children. We lost is as we grew up on took on the world.” Anonymous (Soul to Soul,…
