As fall barrels toward winter and the leaves race past Halloween, death and grieving have been on my mind. I feel like our white US culture is thin on healthy attitudes and healing around death. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer my senior year in high school. Being with my invincible mother as she was rocked by her terror of Death opened my eyes. Now, over twenty years later, my mother has been living with stage 4 cancer that has just come back for the fifth time. And she is no more comfortable with Death even though she has had him as a constant companion for a third of her life.

Our fall newsletter has been harvested!
Welcome to our fall newsletter! We hope that you have had a fun filled summer and are ready for a rich, fruitful autumn. Fall is a time of harvest. All of the tiny seeds that are planted in spring are now bearing fruit. We hope that your life is feeding you! If not, this is perfect time to change course. What I see reflected in clinic and my own life is that our physical, emotional, and spiritual health is our creation. If we like the way our body, mind and spirit is behaving – great! If not, it’s time to make new choices, because the life we’re living creates the body we’re currently experiencing.

Stress Relief with This Easy Breath Technique!
We’ve been doing this easy breath technique our whole life. Think about it…The first thing we do when we’re born is inhale. The last thing we do as a human being is exhale. In between the first inhale and the last exhale are countless breaths; each one keeping us alive… and yet we take our breath for granted.
This eggplant ragout is a summer favorite and sure crowd pleaser!
Eggplant ragout is a delicious Mediterranean sauce which can be eaten plain or over noodles, or grains. I served it over quinoa and it was super yummy. The main veggies are the first four listed, but feel free to add others if you are so moved.
I just love this time of year, because the tomatoes are ripe! One of the greatest pleasures of life is eating a sun warmed tomato just picked off the vine. Sigh.
One of my good friends is an amazing gardener and she gifted me with a number of goodies which are in season right now which all together make one of my favorite dishes! I thought I would pass on my loose recipe for you to take and make your own.
