Spiritual Bypassing & #blacklivesmatter

June 21, 2020

In the yoga realm we often hear the phrases “love and light to all” and “we’re all one” and “just relax”.

3… 2… 1… Beer Bread!

May 17, 2020

Who’s ready for carbs?! Everyone knows that midwesterners enjoy their beer, but they must be crazy to mix it with bread, right? My response: don’t knock it ‘til you try it! I came across this recipe on Facebook of all places, so I didn’t have very high expectations to start. The simplicity and the fact that I actually had all of the ingredients encouraged me to try it out despite my reservations. I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious it turned out!

Creative Living: Why & How to Live Creatively

Creative Living: Why & How to Live Creatively

May 10, 2020

What does it mean to live “creatively?” Often, we imagine the stereotypical “starving artist” -- an eccentric character who lives in a dark, dingy apartment where they drink excessively and create madly, as though possessed by some sort of artistic yet masochistic spirit.

However, creativity does not at all need to look like that.

April 10, 2020

Easter, if you celebrate it, is a holiday filled with delicious candy, joyous egg hunts, unsettling bunny costumes, and lots and lots of PLASTIC. Plastic baskets, plastic grass, plastic eggs, and plastic toys. It’s so easy to indulge in all of these fun holiday traditions without really thinking about where all the plastic ends up, but we can continue to enjoy the festivities while also keeping mother nature in mind and doing what we can to minimize pollution. It’s all about reusing, reducing, and DIY-ing!

COVID Reflection: Processing Grief and Desire Amidst Unforeseen Change

April 06, 2020

When COVID began to sweep the United States, it felt a bit surreal and dramatic to many. Isn’t it just a strain of the flu? What’s the big deal here? As things progressed, though, we started to see a daily change to both the situation as well as folks’ perception of it. Many of us have been immersed in socially distant communities for a couple weeks now, and are starting to realize that this may very well last for much longer than initially thought. What we’re ultimately finding ourselves in is a whole new world, and as with any big change, there are bound to be psychological impacts.
