January News

Happy Lunar Year of the Dragon! Like  the dragon's fiery breath, I'm burning what no longer serves me to bring out my best. What are you doing to transform in 2012? 


 
Global News
 
 


 
I like this group that fights poverty: ONE


Amnesty International always rocks. They fight against child sex trade and investigate the case of Mao Hengfeng, a Chinese human rights defender released from prison unexpectedly in a wheelchair and severely beaten. 

Have you read the book that will change your life, yet? What are you waiting for? Read about it here and get ready for positive and real change.

The exercises in this book are challenging and inspirational. Read my interview with Rod Stryker about facing your "shadow side" in The Four Desires process in YOGAChicago Magazine.

Korean New Year Soup Recipe  떡국!
I LOVE rice cake soup, especially on New Year's Day. It's not too late to enjoy this gluten free, vegan optional soup. A great recipe is here. Yum! Use soy sauce instead of beef broth or fish sauce to veg out. Don't use too much or the broth will be too dark! Each rice cake represents one more healthy year of life. 

 

Local News


Here's to your health and wellness in 2012! Here are local healthy ideas that I love:

Chicago School of Thai Massage offers Vippassana Meditation and Thai Massage classes every Monday. I'll be there next week.

Moksha Yoga studios offer classes and workshops in all styles and theories of yoga. Start on your yoga path. Why wait? 

Healthy restaurants in town are listed here. It's so awesome to have choices of gluten free, vegan, organic and HEALTHY foods. I remember eating a Gino Giant hamburger at my local fast food Gino's in Philly. One day, I bit into a hard bone marrow and haven't had beef ever since. Shiver. Use your intelligence to guide your gut. And eat lots of ginger, especially now!


And finally...my new band, Asian Girl Army, seeks guitarists. Asian women preferred! Email me with leads and interests. Rock on.


And finally finally...RIP to my lovely kitty, Zero, who I hung out with 13 years. Jaw cancer got him last month. Thanks for the mew mew memories, Zero Kitty! I miss him.

 
 
And, as always...
Groupons, Groupons: Lookie here.
Half price theater and spa tickets for everywhere found here.
Micro-lend to hard working folks here.
