"She seemed to come suddenly upon happiness as if she had surprised a butterfly in the Winter woods"

off for a few days

dutch husband & I are off on a little adventure.. riding up the north coast for the weekend..
I have been rather quiet as I have been working through Walking in this World.. & as Julia Cameron tends to do.. stuff has been coming up for me so I am doing a bit of inner work.. have joined the collage workshop as well as a medicine doll workshop with Barb Kobe..

I finally found a naturopath who I am comfortable with.. I had a long session with her today and she is of the school where no supplements are taken but heal yourself with whole foods.. a very positive lady who shares recipes and herbs from her garden with her clients.. I came home with an armful of kaffir lime leaves and quite a few recipe ideas! she also said to make myself a mix of clary sage & geranium essential oils in a carrier oil to rub onto my breasts and ovary areas to help with the night sweats.. and 'ordered' me to do yoga at least 3 times a week.. [she is yet another butterfly in my life now.. very compassionate and warm.. just what my soul needs at this moment in time..] oh and buckwheat pancakes for breakfast & home made sushi for lunch.. looks like I will be cooking quite a bit. fun. looking after myself with food, creating for myself.. treating myself with love & care..

I love that you're off wandering a while Robyn. That sounds like a good naturopath. I went to one who made me spend a ton of money on her pills and made me take 20 pills a days which made me very, very sick. I truly believe in the healing power of food and "real" herbs, not ones hidden in pills. Enjoy the healing foodie journey and time to yourself.

I'm really late getting by but I hope the naturopath will be a help to you. Sounds like she gave you lots of things to try.

Have fun on your adventure and I'll see when you return!!
