The Radiant Goddess Program…starting May 1!

Hello there readers!

I wanted to take a few minutes today and talk about one of my favorite e-courses: the Radiant Goddess Program from Goddess Guidebook. Leonie Dawson is a sparkly, bright and shiny woman that is out in the virtual world helping women heal, grow and claim their dreams. I have been a part of the Goddess Circle for the past year (check out the fun icon on the sidebar for more info), and I am inspired each week by the wonderful women who come together to share their challenges, goals and life journeys.

The Radiant Goddess Program was the first e-course I signed up for as part of the circle and it was FANTASTIC! No dogma, no shame about eating the “wrong” foods, no stress about pushing your body and mind too far. It is just about healthy eating, clean living and making baby steps each and every day of the program so that by the end of it, you feel like a shinier, more radiant person.

Not to mention the amazing videos you receive each day in your inbox, filled with sunshine, discussions about health and wellness, tips for the cleanse and all around good energy. There are also daily “assignments”, journal prompts and other goodies. Each morning starts with a Radiant Goddess meditation (only if you want, of course) and the content is super inspiring and insightful.

Ok, so what about the food? I know that is what most folks want to hear all about when thinking about doing a cleanse or health program. And I will tell you this: the food was AMAZING! All clean, healthy, gluten-free, vegan and high-raw (although Ayurvedis such as myself switched that up a bit!) The recipes are anti-inflammatory, delicious and nutritious and you are given enough recipes to make your own radiant goddess cookbook! I found new ideas for healthy desserts, smoothies and snacks and even some main dishes my (meat-eating) partner enjoyed.

On top of all this goodness, the illustrations, affirmations and energy that comes from this program is beautiful. You will feel supported one hundred percent of the way and I found the spiritual and emotional piece of this program super healing and unique.

Alright, this e-course starts Monday! And so here are the details:

You will receive all of the above for only $89! Seriously, as someone who doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend, it is such an incredible investment. The radiant recipes alone are worth it, and to be supported and cared for by such a beautiful team of women is the icing on the (sugar-free, vegan and gluten-free) cake!


Ok, that’s all for today. Will you be joining me on Tuesday? I sure hope so 🙂

motivational mondays!

hello loves!

i am writing this motivational monday post quite late since we just got back home from seeing my cousin’s band play a show. they are called the upside down and if you like good ol’ rock and roll, you should check them out!

ok, here is what has inspired me this week:

this lentil soup with ras el hannout from avocado bravado looks great. i am always a sucker for a good lentil soup and ras el hannout is a longtime favorite spice blend of mine.

these magical photographs from simen johan’s majestic beasts exhibition. it’s amazing how nature can take your breath away.

the wonderful leonie from goddess guidebook made this joyous video about falling asleep while meditating. she is so right!




and i will leave you with one of my most beloved poems from rumi:


the guest house

this being human is a guest house.
every morning a new arrival.

a joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

welcome and entertain them all!
even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
he may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

the dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.

be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

motivational mondays are here!

hello all,

well, this weekend was wonderful, with lots of dancing, laughing and prayer but i am now in a slump with achy bones, the remnants of my cold still lingering and a bout of the blues.

so i thought that since monday is usually the day reserved for dread and gloom, i would start sharing inspirations from the past week.

videos, articles, poems…anything and everything that gets us moving and shaking! because we all need a little push on mondays, right?


this week i have some awesomeness to share:


this video is from yogamint (which is a great website and is worth checking out) and features two of my favorite things: vegan truffles and meditation!


mark bittman, a seasoned food critic and author, presented this talk on the environmental consequences of meat production and consumption and what is wrong with the way we eat. he is clear and concise and packs the last century of the history of food in only a few minutes!


and last but not least, the amazing goddess leonie from goddess guidebook has shared her first podcast! she includes an affirmation and a short meditation.


i hope this new series will make your week better, brighter and more full of joy!
