Little Treasures Week 5- Coffee Break, Chakras and Sun Kissed Skin.
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
Ah sun-kissed skin and beautiful summer mornings, I'm missing you right now.
I came across this incredible Photographer who has been capturing the wild in such an exquisite way : Yuyan has spent ten years involved with a group of 21st Century hunter-gatherers, a movement called the Stone Age Living Project. Their aim is to return to primitive living, away from the modern age. In the summer of 2014, Yuyan embedded himself with the group for a month, for which they had spent six months in preparation. They tanned hides and collected and dried foods in anticipation of the month ahead. During the month itself they hunted, “strained their way up scree slopes in bloodied bare feet”, and lived primally. Yuyan chose to carry a camera rather than a weapon, and with it he recorded their activities.
I'm giving my adrenals a 2 month coffee break, and it's going really great so far. By doing this I've noticed that it's not really the coffee that I miss but more the ritual of making and drinking a cup of coffee. So I'm trying to replace "the moment" by doing a Matcha moment twice a week and I'm loving it! I've been making a Coconut Milk Matcha Latte with delicious ceremonial Grade Matcha from Healthy with Nature. Want to take a coffee break as well? Then here is a recipe so you can give it a try!

In times of intense emotions I love working with the chakra wisdom to gain more insight and understanding in why I feel as I feel and act I do. Each chakra has specific physical, psychological, emotional, spiritual and energetic characteristics and it is super interesting to see where you are currently feeling stuck. This knowledge will help you to get that energy flowing again on the levels you need it the most.
