Greetings Tefari family! It has truly been a long time since I shared anything to this blog. The last time I really shared anything consistently was back when we first got into the pandemic that we now call Covid. It has been well over a year, and a lot has happened. If you follow me on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), then you are probably up to date on...

This week I am covering the affects of different emotions on our internal organs. Much of my discussion has been from an oriental medicine viewpoint. As my training is in Oriental Medicine and Asian bodywork, these discussions are timely for the times.  I am specifically talking about the Zang Fu organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, spleen, gallbladder,...

During yesterday’s blog, I started the discussion on the affects of emotions on our organs. I specifically talked about the Zang Fu organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, spleen, gallbladder, large intestine, small intestine, urinary bladder, and the san jiao (the triple system).

We are officially on Day 30 of me blogging from the behind the rona lines! When I first started sharing, I thought I would have a hard time sharing daily. However, I found that with time it got easier to let the words flow. The blog contents have not always been educational, but you got to see a little more about my life, and my experiences. There were some days I didn’t...

thread-5047561_1280
Friday is finally here. It doesn’t feel like Friday though. I have been trying to find the hemp cord that was used for my scrubbies, but have not had any luck as yet. The search will continue for the right sized hemp yarn. While I would love to just go with another yarn, it bothers me that I can’t find the right size. I have a thicker hemp yarn that can work,...

Today was the first day having sunrise meditation at 7:00 AM. One of my close friends has been encouraging me to host virtual yoga classes, but I have been dragging me feet. Today we had our first session. I was able to work out some of the kinks, and look forward to learning more as I go. I will be working on refining my morning sessions such that there is 10 minutes of...

Welcome to day 26! The days are definitely feeling like they are blending into each other. Before I start writing a blog, I have to check what day I am on. One of my friends joked about it already being Wednesday. I had to actually check my calendar to confirm. With all of the projects that I have going on, I am keeping super busy most days. I didn’t actually get...
