Full Moon Last Week

My dears, It was a powerful and auspicious full moon this month on July 5. We call it Guru Poornima in the Hindu and Buddhist traditions.

Are you taking life for granted?

My dearest treasures, This week, I’ve had to give up something as basic as a cup of black tea with a tinge of oat milk due to an allergic reaction it was producing in the body.
