Recipe to Share

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:54 pm by DivineShantiYoga

This year I’ve taken one of my favorite dip recipes and created a delicious sandwich that balances nicely the heat of pepperoncini peppers with the coolness of fresh greens. Loving it.

Pepperoncini Dip:

12 oz. jar of chopped pepperoncinis

8 oz. softened cream cheese

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Blend together in food processor. I leave out some of the pepper juice so it doesn’t become too runny. Serve with corn tortillas or crackers. For a delicious sandwich, generously spread dip on both slices of bread. Devour with fresh lettuce or greens of your choice and sliced swiss cheese. Yummy!

Tasbim Sunset/Sunrise Chant

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:49 pm by DivineShantiYoga

I received this chant from a friend while I was in the hospital healing, and it has been my daily mantra ever since. Thank you Steph Davis, for sharing your powerful love, and the power in this chant, which I will continue to share as we are inherently united. I invite you all, to say this aloud each morning and evening, and bask in it’s magnificent power.








“May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Come to Me.

May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Come Surround Me.

May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Please Flow Through Me.

May the Love and the Light and the Healing Energies Heal All Those Around Me.”

Through the path of the heart

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:14 pm by DivineShantiYoga

Throughout this process of healing my body,  I have been recently finding myself submerged in reading, writing, and allowing my creating juices to flow through me as I receive your healing energies. This passage from Seng-ts’an, Third Patriarch of Zen has really hit home for me during this time, and I want to share it with you. I invite you to read it, then re-read it. Then re-read it again. 🙂 Allow yourself to sit with it’s message. It is love. It is powerful. It is pure. It is beautiful.

“Deny the reality of things

and you miss their reality;

Assert the emptiness of things

and you miss their reality.

The more you talk and think about it,

the further you wander from the truth.

So cease attachment to talking and thinking,

and there is nothing you will not be able to know.

To return to the root is to find the essence,

but to pursue appearances or “enlightenment” is to miss the Source.

To awaken even for a moment

is to go beyond appearances and emptiness.”

~Seng-ts’an, Third Patriarch of Zen
