Alluring Honeysuckle

2018-03-06T18:43:28+00:00Anu's Adventures, Hair Care|

I have a fondness for herbaceous aromas, so for nearly 40 years I have been using the same two hair oils on my hair and scalp, Medicinal and Herbal. I would go back and forth the between these two oils.   This past week I had my hair braided at Khamit Kinks in single [...]

You Are Your Own Sanctuary

Jaki Shelton Green, noted award winning poet, writer, lecturer, professor and inductee into North Carolina’s Literary Hall of Fame, has been telling me about her sistaWrite retreats since we met a couple of years ago. I was honored to experience why she loves and enjoys facilitating sistaWRITE Retreats. One of Jaki’s favorite locations to [...]

Cleopatra

2017-10-31T20:46:56+00:00Anu's Adventures|

I knew one day I would have the courage to tell this story.  I’ll never forget the first time I met a young woman with the name of a queen.  Cleopatra is her name and we met in the autumn of 2012.  Our introduction was precipitated by a very loud, visceral, blood-curdling scream that [...]

Tutus and Propositions

2017-10-31T22:01:10+00:00Anu's Adventures|

As a little girl practicing the fundamentals of ballet, I longed to be a ballerina on Halloween.  Why a ballerina? I had this thing about tutus.  To me they were magical!  They seem to suggest that one could fly.  I wanted to don my ballet gear and go from house to house collecting candy [...]

Autumn Reset

2018-03-27T22:49:16+00:00Anu's Adventures|

As we move head on into October I’m experiencing that feeling I often have during early autumn, a mixture of yes and no, of delight and dread.  Early autumn is typically beautiful, the weather is temperate, and the trees turn radiant shades of red, orange and yellow. It’s a nostalgic time, reminiscing on summer. It [...]

Hiking to The Heights

2018-03-06T18:35:09+00:00Anu's Adventures, Health & Wellness|

What happens when you drop a stone lover (that would be me) in a place like Tecate, Mexico?  I was overwhelmed, but in a good way, by all the beauty surrounding this incredibly sacred area of Mexico.  From the time we left the border and started the uphill ride to Tecate, there were humongous [...]

The Gift of Rancho La Puerta

Mexico; Tecate; Rancho La Puerta My dear friend Shay has been taking retreat vacations at Rancho La Puerta, along with her sister Ashaka off and on since the early 80s. Shay has often shared with me the magic of this wondrous sanctuary and would from time to time suggest that I visit [...]

Stone Love

2017-10-27T00:17:44+00:00Anu's Adventures|

I have this love for stones, an undeniable connection. Perhaps it’s the allure of their grounding energy that attracts me? Stones can be found all around my home; their textures, varying colors, shapes, and the uniqueness of each one is just magical. Although rocks and stones may appear to be inert, each possesses energy [...]

Climate Reality Leadership Corps

2017-10-27T00:13:25+00:00Anu's Adventures|

The recent catastrophe of Hurricane Harvey has once again put nature via the weather front and center in our lives. It is a very serious time when it comes to saving this planet, and thereby saving ourselves. Severe Weather is causing much suffering not only in Houston, Nigeria, Maharashtra, and Mumbai has also been hit [...]

A Return To My Truth

2017-08-26T10:12:59+00:00Anu's Adventures|

In the mid-70s while attending Howard University, I had an awakening.  I began my road to healthy living by becoming a vegetarian.  A College is often a place of new beginnings, self-exploration and discovery.  I began reading the very popular and now iconic Back To Eden by Jethro Kloss, followed by Dick Gregory’s Book [...]
