‘Waning Moon until June!’

Best time to organize & de-clutter gardens, sheds, repair & clean tools or garden equipment.



Basic Principles of a Functioning Ecosystem:

  • An ecosystem is a natural unit consisting of all plants, animals and micro-organisms in an area functioning together with all of the non-living physical factors of the environment.

Humans are apart of the physical living ecosystem and can bring planetary balance and health when a larger portion of us integrate right brain experiences versus being led by those seeking answers through left brain pursuits for answers and solutions.  Right brain experiences are spacious and open taking in more of the surroundings including spirit of all things, while left brain experiences are isolated and usually singularity focused upon solutions.

Engaging your right-brain through a system of learning to somatically experience your sensations in the interactive parts of your lifestyle can have a huge impact personally and in the broader context of life on the planet.  Beginning to recognize interactive values of all part of living can stimulate and cultivate awareness in ones choices that could increase balance and harmony.  The left-brain can be strategy oriented using a habitual process of taking things for granted while the right brain is open and receptive to the full environment letting the choices emerge organically.

With this in mind we share personal mindful pathways to integrate and increasing functional ecosystems within and without.

Here are some ways to get started on a  connective healing journey of your own:.  


‘Indoor Gardening’

with fresh probiotics

This spring  we added Kefir to ways of ‘fermenting foods in  the kitchen.’  Integrating the culturing of Kefir grains in fresh milk  began as an exploration to satisfy our curiosity.  However the health benefit became obvious within a couple of weeks.    Anyone who has made their own Kombucha may be agreeable to describing it as an alive experience of sensations in the mouth.  Drinking fresh Kefir for us is a similar experience.  Drinking milk now seems dull without and aliveness.

We have since learned that this living probiotic continues to live in our guts unlike yogurt, which is transient and eliminated.  Physically the results have been easier and faster digestion and less hunger.  Portions size have been reduced along with no more snacks.  The most noticeable change has been an experience of more balance mentally and emotionally with increased clarity, alertness and direct action.   Not to mention the amazing results from infusing it in hair and skin conditioning.  Imagine putting an alive culture on your skin and scalp – two large body surfaces that absorb nutrients.

After creating a digestive aid that would include a source of iron using dock root infused with black-strap molasses I learned this remedy was considered a prebiotic.  A prebiotic feeds the probiotics in your gut and keeps them healthy! 

Imagine a food plan that is a process of feeding functions of the body, mind & spirit versus being a diet.
