Reading 15 new books, 100s of pages a week, writing papers, sitting exams and doing homework? Intense. Learning facilitation and practicing it for hours and […]

Smoothies Make You Fat – Ayurveda 101

I don’t care how healthy you believe your smoothie is. How many expensive, organic super foods you’ve lovingly blended with nut milks, global dried berries, hand-foraged seeds, grass fed whey products, heirloom oils and green lake-sourced powders.
