Within any seed sits potential. Until germinated, that potential remains locked away. The question, then, becomes, "how do we free that potential"? With the proper environment and care, any seed will gladly open and grow into life. The evolution of its species depends on it.
Taking time to nurture and sprout seeds creates life. Whether sprouting a literal seed of food or a metaphorical seed of a dream, you increase life energy.
As we near the end of Winter, we can feel this potential in life all around us. Sit still in that potential. Absorb the magic of it. The zinging sense of vital energy growing. Become aware of how you can more fully invite that potential into your life. Tune into those areas of potential within you. Recognizing the seeds you have planted will help you to properly discern which ones to tend to and invite into the space of the living.
Sprouting seeds can seem like a daunting task to add to your kitchen routine, but is really simple. I promise! It is a super easy way to make your food more alive, increase digestibility, and make nutrients more bioavailable.
I'm beginning the conversation by sharing about sprouting buckwheat. A super easy way to begin your sprouting adventure! Watch my video here to learn all about it and stay tuned for more fun sprouting ideas coming soon. (Keep an eye on my Instagram stories!)
How Do You Eat Sprouted Buckwheat?
Lots of posts coming to my IG account right now, but, essentially, I usually eat it raw and treat it like a grain in my food.

The full moon is symbolic of fulfillment, wholeness, and closure. It is a time to celebrate everything that has brought you to this moment in life while releasing that which no longer serves you. Join us for an hour of yoga designed to release unneeded holds, blockages, and emotional distress— rinsing your soul, just as the ocean’s high tide washes over the sand and rinses the beach of debris. The yoga class will be followed by a 30 minute extended savasana sound bath when Andrew Marshall will play crystal bowls to create an immersive experience, in which sound vibrations shift your awareness and state of being. You will walk away feeling complete relaxation, realignment, and reconfiguration.
September 17th-20th, 2020 - True Nature Retreat More info here.
Are you yearning to immerse yourself in the peace and harmony of nature? This three-night magical retreat will connect you in a meaningful way with mother nature, drawing you more deeply into connection with your inner nature.
Nestled in the heart of a beautiful Oregon forest, next to a babbling creek, we will gather for meditation, yoga, guided forest bathing, crystal sound bowl healing, and fireside gatherings. You will join with nature and connect in spirit with those around you, while still enjoying space to retreat and tend to the needs of your soul.
Each day we will wake and gather for morning meditation and invigorating (yet suitable for all levels) yoga. Following breakfast, we will feed our spirit with nature! Moving through the forest in a meaningful way will allow you to fully absorb the magic and access a true state of inner harmony. Lunch will be a collective effort with the guidance of Katrina, a passionate Nutritionist and food-lover. Afternoons will be open for you to nourish yourself with whatever appeals to you. Hiking, enjoying the creek's swimming hole, visiting with friends, relaxing in the hot tub, reading in a hammock... all options in this lovely setting. Late afternoon, we will gather for restorative yoga and sound bath, followed by dinner. Before heading to bed, we will circle around the fire to reflect and enjoy
