Grounding Down


Symbolized by the hexahedron, aligned with the root chakra, and governing the universal Law of Cause & Effect, Earth situates us within the physical body.

Embodied through each individual breath, Earth beckons us to ground ourselves to terra firma, reconnecting with the natural world.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full, to talk about.


Reflections on GROUNDING DOWN

Pumpkin Beef Chili

Where do Jack-o-Lanterns go for Dinner? Halloween came and went, leaving us sick of sweets and craving some real, hearty, stomach-warming food. Our choice of Pumpkin Beef Chili stemmed from two simultaneous predicaments: A very large pumpkin carved like a cat and an excess of ground beef.

Grounding Down,

Grain-free Pancakes

Our quest to eat gluten-free has led us to experiment with a number of "alternative" flours. Sometimes, we compromise and us non-local flour. These delicious, very easy "treat" pancakes are made with lots of eggs and a little bit of coconut flour.

Grounding Down,

Grain-free Cauliflower Crust Pizza

The full pizza experience without the grain.
Our family avoids most grains. But, we craved a real pizza experience—pizza you could actually pick up in your hands! This recipe is absolutely delicious. I'm not going to lie to you, it's a LOT of work and pretty messy too. But, it's worth every minute of it!
