Spirituality and Practice is a wonderful website that's been inspiring me. Basically, it's all about gratitude and packed with beautiful poems, practices, prayers, films, books. I love their online site 'Light a Candle' as a prayer, an offering, a thank you. There's about 14,000 candles shining at the moment in their spirit cyberspace.

I'm currently editing a video of the cranial lift technique, which I teach in Nourishing the Body as well as some fab cooking ones. The Christmas Tiramisu was luscious!

Wild Earth Journeys: I've also begun offering small groups or individuals a journey experience in the bush of the Blue Mountains or Sydney to align with the elements, the land and your wild soul self. This is a transformational time of deep connecting and coming home to your true nature. We often forget we live in oneness with this incredible earth. So much is available for our healing, wisdom and joy in our environment. You may choose to connect with mossy creeks, craggy cliffs, great sky or plant spirit over 2 hours or a whole day.

A Daily Spiritual Practice

The Holy Spirit is our harpist, 
and all the strings 
which are touched in love 
Must sound. 
— Mechtild of Magdeburg quoted in Open Mind by Diane Mariechild

To Practice This Thought: Allow yourself to be played by the Spirit.

Connecting land, spirit and our wild soul self

Hello Beautiful Ones,
A couple of weeks ago I arrived back from a long stay in the desert, where I went to ground again, literally! Jane Elworthy and I have been exploring the Flinders Ranges and the sacred heart land of Mutawinji; endless skies, great, round bellied, river red gums and dusty, red earth. This land takes me in so deep, into such stillness and silence. It strips me of ‘clutter’ on every level and fills my being. This is the land where we were so recently for the Soulsong Desert Retreat with a gorgeous group of beautiful, powerful, creative women. What a group is capable of, when we come together in a loving space with a clear intention, is phenomenal. As well as for our own individual journeys, I feel we were of great benefit to the land. Wild, laughing, weaving, wondrous women! Singing, drumming, dancing and journeying the desert paths.
 
This year has brought me into deep heart connection with so many incredible people. It truly feels like the time of doing things in a solitary way is over. 

 
Wild Earth Wisdom changes
I’ve made lots of changes while sitting out in the big red center, watching carousing, raucous corellas, eagles and a cacti sprouting the most incredible flowers. ‘Wild Earth Wisdom’ is my new logo and business name. It feels more true to the work that’s been singing my soul for so many years. My heart has been longing to dive more fully into sharing what’s possible with essences, earth connection, plant spirit as well as the Sacred Anointing, Magdalene work and Soulsong Retreats Jane and I are co-facilitating. And hopefully, time for more ‘loving spoonfuls’ of divine recipe creating!
 
I was told by Spirit last year, that my dreams were far too small (and I thought they were huge). I needed to dream big, really Big! We all do. I’ve been challenging myself with just how big I can really dream and imagine... Change is only a perception away.
 
May our wild land sing you and shape you
and may your love fill the land like an overflowing spring
 
I look forward to seeing you all in 2014! 
Chana we-a-te
Walk in Grace

This workshop is primarily experiential. Knowledge of the oils is not necessary as guidance for their use will be given.

Jacqui's wonderful cookbook

A-Loving-Spoonful-CoverNaturally delicious gluten, dairy and sugar free vegetarian cooking at it's best.

Have you recently been told to go on a restricted diet and find the diet almost worse than the disease? Or feel that you can never eat anything delicious again? With food sensitivities becoming increasingly common, ‘what CAN I eat?’ is a common cry. Herbalist, Nutritionist, Lecturer and Reiki Teacher, Jacqui Bushell has written a much needed cookbook in answer to these questions. This simple and tasty cookbook is designed for vegetarians needing to avoid dairy, gluten and sugar. It’s rare a cookbook combines healthy eating and elimination diets with fabulous results; gluten free bread and cakes (that don’t disintegrate into crumbs), dips, soups, desserts, biscuits…... A Loving Spoonful is, quite simply, delicious!

Jacqui Bushell has been facilitating retreats and workshops over the last 15 years, fully catering to folks with sensitive digestions. Loving her food, participants kept asking for the recipes which she would keep printing out. As the list of recipes she invented became longer and longer, the photocopied pages became more and more, until it finally resulted in this cookbook.

AVAILABE NOW ONLY $40!

Chocolate Recipe

I love making my own chocolate! Apart from adding just as many roast almonds as I'd like (a lot), I can also make it sugar free and dairy free and to the darkness of my choice. heaven! The only thing to be aware of is that's it's pure saturated fat and delicious beyond words.I've been using coconut palm sugar as it's full of nutrients and low GI. It won't dissolve in fats so you end with a product with tiny crunchy bits. The tricky thing is to make sure it is adequately dispersed throughout the chocolate as it is setting otherwise you end with chocolate which has a sweet layer right at the bottom and bitter on top.

chocolate

100g raw cocoa butter

Pinch salt

55g coconut palm sugar - this depends how sweet you like it, I generally have about 40g, but friends prefer at 55g....

20g organic cocoa powder - this makes it reasonably dark but not too bitter

These are the base ingredients. over low heat melt the cocoa butter and add the cocoa powder and palm sugar. Stir well and chill until it starts to thicken, then pour into a tray lined with foil, until set. If you put it in the freezer, it'll be ready to munch in about 15 minutes!

Things to add:

Add enough desiccated coconut until it's thick

Dry roasted almonds or other nuts

Cranberries, sultanas, goji berries and/or a little finely grated rind of an orange

Rice or millet puffs

A couple of pinches of chilli or cardamom
