Siddha Stories - The Melody
Reb Yitzchak was a simple and pious man. He was dedicated to this family and always went out of his way to provide for them. Still, they were rich in spirit but very poor in possessions. Each Shabbat afternoon as the sun began to set, Reb Yitzchak, who always did so much for his…
Still buzzing along under the influence of the Aquarian blue Moon in August- the second of the consecutive Aquarian full Moons. No going back after that quite unique month. And that’s basically what’s being clearly indicated by the cosmic patterns: “No Going Back”. Just about all aspects of life moving into new, uncharted territory

Gardening - Miracle Fruit

Spring always brings me a feeling of renewed energy and clearing out the stagnant energy of winter. A deep clean of the house, and a deep clean of my diet and practices. So this month I bring you three beautifully simple, nourishing, and detoxifying recipes.
Feng Shui - Connection
It is important to make your home feel warm and inviting and to encourage connection to not only each other in the home but also connection to your home and your neighbourhood. This is part of the beautiful harmonious feeling found in a home, it is like the home is humming happily.
Animal - Dragonfly
Dragonflies are water creatures that spend much of their life as an aquatic nymph before emerging with a powerful set of wings. As adults, Dragonflies live around inland waterways and freshwater creeks where they can manage their body temperature by basking in the warm sunshine.
