This week’s lifestyle goodies are packed with sensory richness, bringing sunshine to rainy, dreary days.  I am in no place to complain about weather living in Southern California where we had the hottest Winter I can remember, but when it rains here, it tends to be dark for days.  This week-  a big week to launch new things and clarify things of the past- I just couldn’t dip into the dreary.  So… lots of sunshine came flooding in!  

1. Citrus!  I have been eating all kinds of tiny tangerines in the last week or so, perhaps over-eating them but who can help it- they are perfect for such a select season!  The sugar-sour-citrus punch always makes me feel brighter, and the essential oil spraying off the many peels cleans the air in a profound way.

2. Rose Mask.   When you open this bottle all you see are rose petals!  It is the biggest rush, the deepest aromatherapy treat and my skin just loves it.  While I struggled at first to get the petals all over my face, I quickly learned how, rubbing my hands together gently before applying and massaging into my skin… as deep desire fuels invention!

3. The local museum. This week it was MOCA. Barry Le Va was stunning as a mass of shattered glass on the floor too awesome to adequately capture.  This trip brought a ton of light and clarity to my mind and heart. Interacting with lots of art can catalyze emotional shifts for me in a big way, somehow making me more open and vulnerable.

4.  Strala yoga! J’adore Strala!  I can’t say enough about how much fun Strala is— much more fun than any yoga I have every practiced. And the fun… is empowering.  Check it out HERE!

5. Drawing On The Right Side Of The Brain. This book by Betty Edwards will open your mind to a whole new way of seeing…and drawing!  I have toyed with the book many times but now I want to do a seminar and actually get through it! Maybe we should start a group!?!?   Do you guys think it would be fun to draw together for a few weeks doing these bananas exercises that stretch your mind? Let me know!

So, that’s my week in lifestyle goodies so far… and just getting started!  What are you loving? Are there holistic goodies, ideas or even homeopathic wonders that you’d like to share?  Please do! I learn so much from all of you!  xoxo Dana

    Please please please do a Drawing On The Right Side of the Brain seminar. I am familiar with this book – I might still own it – I would love someone to go through the book with.
