Chance meeting of two strangers in a parking lot...

“Our relationships with one another are like a chance meeting of two strangers in a parking lot. They look at each other and smile. That is all there is between them. They leave and never see each other again. That is what life is – just a moment, a passing, and then it is gone.

If you understand this, there is no time to fight. There is no time to argue. There is no time to hurt one another. 

Whether you think about it in terms of humanity, nations, communities, or individuals, there is no time for anything less than truly appreciating the brief interaction we have with one another.

… Time is very precious. Do not wait until you are dying to understand your spiritual nature. If you do it now you will discover resources of kindness and compassion you didn’t know you had.”

WILD CARROT SEED: The Earth's Gift for SAFE, Effective, Natural Birth Control!

Hey Goddesses! PLEASE SHARE: 

WILD CARROT SEED is the earth's gift for safe, effective, & natural birth control! 

Pharmaceutical birth control pills/ implants, chemical spermicides, and IUDs wreak havoc on our bodies, minds, and feminine powers. We should all be educated about this potent natural option...

The use of WILD CARROT SEED was first documented over 2000 years ago - though it has likely been in use much longer. Medical doctors do not learn about this in medical school! 

There are *very* specific ways to take this beneficial herb. *Note that it's powers may be compromised by antibiotics or pharmaceutical birth control, among a couple other factors (see article). It is generally very effective when taken PROPERLY. 

It even has many unique health benefits. 

It does not interfere permanently with fertility and it does not cause any reproductive damage. Fertile women have gone on to have healthy pregnancies after using it.

My friends who are midwives, doulas, and herbalists have all recommended it.

You can find great, fresh seeds at the Scarlet Sage herb store in SF.

Of course, this option is recommended for tested partners. Safe sex is still a vital consideration.

Here is a great article by Robin Rose Bennet, an herbalist who has abundant, long-term experience with wild carrot seet.

Ultimately, birth control is a very personal decision. Every woman deserves to be fully educated about all the options - and fully empowered when it comes to her own body.

I hope this information helps!

Sacred Burlesque!

SACRED BURLESQUE: This class sounds sooo juicy!

At first, the phrase "SACRED BURLESQUE" seems to be a shocking combination... but then it settles in and seems like two things that were always meant to unite - like sea salt and chocolate!

...It's a beautiful thing to make sacred ART with our sensual energy, instead of burying it or pretending to transcend it (which almost never lasts in a healthy way!). We can honor our passionate energy with this conscious attention and playful creativity. It's so lovely to see this movement of the sacred erotic blossoming all over.
