Little Treasures Week 6 - Podcast, Libido and Kitchari.

Each week I find all sorts of little treasures online and offline that I want to share with you, the must-read articles, the news everyone must know about, the new green brands, quotes, books, but also beautiful handmade products or inspiring people.
 
You can find them here, in our weekly posts called
Little Treasures.



I'm not a podcast kinda girl, but every now and then I find one that really knows how to hold my attention, like On Being.  On Being takes up the big questions of meaning with scientists and theologians, artists and teachers — some you know and others you'll love to meet. Each week a new discovery about the immensity of our lives — updated every Thursday.

Crystal Detox anyone? I think I can definitely use one with this intense Eclipse - Full moon energy going around! Black tourmaline will be your crystal ally to help you become aware and mindful of what no longer serves you so that you can consciously let go and allow a new energy to take that space. It’s very important to cleanse, purify and release all toxic, negative and unwanted energy from your home and energy body to keep yourself vibrating at your highest self. Once you have released this lower vibrational energy from your space, mind and body, you will feel clearer, focused and centered.

Currently reading "The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom" by Don Miguel Ruiz. Ruiz’s four agreements are based on ancient Toltec wisdom and are provide a relatively simple (but effective) formula for living well. The four agreements (spoiler alert!) are to 1) be impeccable with your word, 2) don’t take anything personally, 3) don’t make assumptions, and 4) always do your best.


Need to try out this super strong Chamomille Infusion inspired by The School Of Evolutionary Herbalism.

Our digestion is slower during the winter season and Kitchari can be a wonderful way to nourish and detox at the same time by fueling the body with a stew of rice, beans, vegetables and warming spices that digest quickly and easily. This simple one pot meal is easy to make and to digest, allowing the body to use less energy on digestive functions, and more on clearing and metabolizing ama. The combination of rice and mung beans make a complete protein, meaning you receive enough nutrients to sustain a restful daily routine from this dish alone. The spices – like ginger, turmeric, coriander, cumin and fennel – do deepana(stoking of agni) and pachana (burning of toxins) to cleanse the blood and digestive tract.
