Yes there are millions of things we could or think we should do to feel happier, healthier and more vibrantly alive but see if it doesn’t boil down to these three being the magic formula for you. Read more »

August 11, 2010 By: Laura Bruno Category: Living with Intention, Mind Body Spirit, Raw Food


Is the universe talking to me? Part 1 of Laura Bruno’s talk, “Synchronicity, Intuition and Intention” introduces the talk and covers common questions asked in coaching sessions and classes with Laura. She shares insights about some of the ways the universe nudges people onto their path via health crises that provide quiet downtime and how transitioning to raw foods often leads to synchronicities becoming a common, everyday part of living a natural, spiritually awakened life.

Green Bliss Smoothie

July 28, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Mind Body Spirit, Raw Food


The trick to making any major change is to embrace the process and go gradually. Earlier this year I began to explore raw foods with an open-ended intention: to arrive at a way of eating that fully supported my mind, body and spirit and that left me feeling vibrant, balanced and aware. A few months in I added the intention to have a daily green smoothie. At first I would have one a few times a week, and now 7 months later I look forward to it each morning.

I love experimenting with all the beautiful superfoods out there and devour books and blogs and videos on raw foods daily. My latest favorite is something I’m calling Green Bliss. It’s the richest, loveliest emerald green and maybe it’s just my changing taste buds, but I sometimes think it’s too delicious to be a plant-powered healing potion.

This green smoothie is especially beneficial for women and is ultra-rich in key nutrients like iron, Omega fatty acids, calcium and protein, plus powerful phytonutrients that fight disease. These nutrients are also calming to the nervous system and tissues. I swear you can feel your body coming alive as you drink! Try one when stressed out, having PMS or to move past a craving. The deep level of nutrition will satisfy what your body is really asking for. You’ll find yourself alkalized and revitalized with a steady source of high-vibration energy coursing through your being. To make it simply combine all of the following ingredients in a blender and whip it up. Read more »

Meditation, exercise, mindful eating

April 14, 2010 By: celedra Category: Living with Intention, Mind Body Spirit, Raw Food


I realize that I keep writing about meditating, exercise and eating because they are a constant challenge for me – but then again, I love challenges.

My grandson Jacob asked me if I would please live to be 107 years old. I told him I would do my best and see no good reason why I can’t keep my promise. Anybody out there want to join in? I love to think of all the wonderful things to experience: finally becoming fluent in French, follow Andre Rieu all over the world sitting in quaint towns on summer evening swept away in beautiful music, tangoing all night in Paris, finally doing a 3 month silent retreat, getting my gardens to the point where I can just about completely live off my own grown food – and so much more. What would you do? Let’s gather all of our dreams into a big pot and stir it up!

For me meditating, eating and exercise are the foundation of spiritual, mental and physical well being. I’ll take eating first: I have fallen in love with raw food. Someone said, If you want to be close to God, eat God’s food the way it is served. My taste buds have changed so much since this raw food journey has begun. Nothing is as good as a bowl of fresh, organic veggies all cut up in an array of bright vibrant colors with just a touch a oil and vinegar.

For breakfast, I am addicted to the best smoothie ever. Here is my recipe:

Organic frozen blueberries


Bee Pollen

Aloe Vera Juice

Omega 3 and 6

Hemp Protein powder

A bunch of greens – especially love kale, parsley, chard


bit of maca, acai, msm, green powder or whatever little extra

So good! Everyone loves it and is so surprised that it can look so bad and taste so delicious.

I am filled with gratitude to be able to start every day so filled with energy and vitality and the blessings of this beautiful abundance of food.

Please join me cultivating these 3 pillars of foundation. Why not? We’re all in it together.

love and blessings,


Mindful Eating: The Power of Coconut

October 21, 2009 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Mind Body Spirit


You’ve probably heard the term superfood by now. If you aren’t sure exactly what it means, a superfood is a natural food regarded as especially beneficial because of its nutrient profile or its health-protecting qualities.

One superfood that has gained a lot of attention lately is coconut. Regardless of the specific diet you may observe (omnivorous, vegan or raw), the coconut is a delicious, nutritious and some say beautifying food anyone can incorporate into their diet. Consuming enough healthy fats is essential for optimum health of all body systems including brain, skin, metabolism and hormones. Healthy fats are generally more stable – which means they do not break down and release cell damaging free radicals – at high temperatures. Coconut oil (which is semi-solid to solid below 78 degrees) is one of the best, remaining stable at up to 170 degrees fahrenheit. In addition to being a delicious tropical treat, coconut is a great source of fiber, zinc, medium-chain-fatty acids and antioxidants. Read more »
