Yoga is a spiritual discipline dating back to some 5000 years in the history of Indian philosophy, its purpose, mainly to unleash spiritual and mental powers of an individual. However, in recent times yoga has been extremely popular in the context of fighting stress, anxiety and depression in these times of industrialization and our super-fast lifestyles. Apart from the spiritual aspects, the physiological benefits acquired from yoga have recently had radical scientific understandings behind its workings. It also moderates the surge and the production of chemicals in the body that affect us mentally, physically as well as psychosomatically. So, let's understand the science behind yoga that makes it so useful! Continue reading

Allow me to introduce you to HairPrint, the only 100% hypoallergenic, non-toxic, odor-free hair color in the world proven not only to restore hair to its natural color... it also improves hair structure! Bye-bye harmful chemicals that eventually cause irreparable damage to the hair shaft, follicles and scalp-- Not to mention to our bodies as a whole, since the particles of standard toxic hair dyes are small enough to enter the bloodstream (the reason we can't color hair during pregnancy). The melanin pigment in Hairprint is already present in millions of our skin cells and due to its relatively large size does not pass into the bloodstream... Continue reading

These two darling Irish siblings completely captured my heart. Glowing with such absolute beauty, joy and love... I've truly fallen in love with them. (Please forgive the glare as the paint is still wet!) I approached this oil painting, "Ireland Babes" (18 x 14 oil on panel), in an entirely new fashion. All the plein air painting I've done has made me a much better, more spontaneous and fast painter. The reason being in just one hour outside painting, the entire scene will have totally changed due to the swiftly moving light and, therefore, one must respond to the scene just as quickly or it won't get captured. What this means is there is no time for any conversation in the head... only time to let life flow through and work its magic on the canvas. So this is... Continue reading

Thank you so much Tracy! I'm so happy you found StyleNectar as well :) As far as how this recipe and the Raw Vegan Chocolate Bark fit into PFC, I'd suggest the following: The Raw Vegan Chia Pudding can be eaten as breakfast, lunch or snack... The Raw Vegan Chocolate Bark is great as a small snack any time of day - perhaps 1/2 hour before or after a meal as a little treat or pick-me-up. As always, listen to your own body because we're all different and what works for one may not be best for another. I generally find as long as I'm not overdoing the quantities of anything, there is a lot more leeway in terms of how strict I am with food combining rules, for example. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions on anything. I look forward to seeing you back at StyleNectar soon! Have a beautiful day :) Much love, Juliane

Today I thought I'd share one of my favorite books, The Baghavad Gita. Specifically, the version translated by Eknath Easwaran (1910-1999), who is respected around the world as one of the greatest spiritual teachers. The Bhagavad Gita is believed to have been written between the 5th and 2nd centuries BCE, and, like similar great classics such as Continue reading

Thank you for your comment and question, JPAllen. The article is by Dr. Joseph Mercola. He lists a variety of sources which I included in my clip. Have a beautiful day! Juliane
Hi Lili, Thank you for your questions. On meat, I am now a vegan, however I understand that many people still incorporate it into their lifestyles. I'm going to attach a couple of links to excellent articles on the effects of meat on the body as well as the effects of various cooking techniques. Additionally, I will offer, boiling, steaming and baking in parchment atop a bed of veggies are all options which don't include oil. The very cooking of oil actually turns the oils rancid, so even if it were a good combo, one would be eating rancid oil which in itself is an issue. Here a couple of links to articles by Dr. Gregor: , & Yes, drinking water 30 minutes after a meal is fine. It's even ok to sip on hot tea during your meal. Experiment with what you find works best for your body... and make your own rules. Sending you much love and wishes for a beautiful day! Juliane
Thank you, Alexander. Have a beautiful day :)
I spent last weekend on the Eastern Shore oil painting en plein air. It was a windy, cold weekend, and though I don't typically think of myself as a terribly hardy person, I think I grew a bit more resilient. What's neat about painting is while I'm doing it I don't notice anything else, including whether or not I'm cold. It all comes down to the fact that our attention can only be on one...

Hi Haviland! What a beautiful name by the way :) Thank you for your lovely comment. I'm so happy you tried the recipe and love. Geographic location, humidity etc. will effect how long the cauliflower needs to dehydrate. (Where are you writing from? I love to find out where everyone is from around the world!) You could keep it in the dehydrator longer- or play around with increasing the temp on the dehydrator which will decrease the time it takes to crisp up. Putting in the oven will also work - tho you'll lose the raw factor. Let me know what you try. Look forward to seeing you back at StyleNectar again soon. Have a lovely day and a fab weekend too! Much Love, Juliane

"Little Rocker" 18" x 14" Oil on Canvas This little guy! Does he look familiar? You may recognize him from my last oil painting. Here, it's like an instant in time - - he's caught looking back at us from his surroundings. In the first painting, he was headed somewhere with a purpose... and now, interrupted in what he was doing, he will return to it after we tell him why we stopped him. Exuding... Continue reading

Please enjoy my most recent oil of this unbelievably darling little Raphealesque Putto. Putto (singular for putti) is Italian for a work of art depicting a nude, sometimes winged, child angelic being, usually male, represented in Renaissance paintings by such greats as the painter Raphael and sculptor Donatello. In the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God. Putti, in the ancient classical world of art, were winged infants believed to influence human lives. I absolutely ... Continue reading

It's classic tradition in art, to copy the works of great masters. Perhaps you've seen artists set up in the great museums of the world doing just this? I have done so here in this painting, Two White Dresses, by John Singer Sargent, one of my favorite artists. Continue reading

A couple of weeks back I shared Day 2 of this incredibly special oil portrait... Well, here it is fully complete: my stunning mother on her wedding day! I was struck by her dewy skin, slender figure and most of all the pure joy and love radiating from her being. Her dress was absolutely stunning, worn previously by a model on the runway, which she was able to purchase at a discount as a result. I remember sneaking into the special closet in the attic with my sister when we were little to marvel over this gorgeous wedding gown where it hung safely stowed away alongside many other beautiful pieces from my mother's young adult life... from the pale yellow polka-dotted gown with matching wide yellow sash to her suede wrap mini-skirt and fur ski-vest. She was certainly a fashion plate in her day. To paint my mother as a twenty-three year old bride enabled me to see life through those eyes, through her eyes as a young woman. Beautiful. Talented. In love. Happy. I saw my sister in her face, in those eyes, in her smile - the way their upper lips shift across their beautiful teeth. I felt my Dad's love for her, his pride in marrying this exquisite creature, and their excitement for the adventure of the unknown. It was like traveling in time and space, inhabiting the hearts and minds of all my family! There truly isn't another experience quite like painting a portrait. And this was one incredibly special piece I'll treasure forever. I love you Mommy. Continue reading

Hello, friends! A little while ago I promised I'd share my fabulous Essential Oil (EO) finds with you and I'm finally here to make good on my promise. I've amassed quite the EO collection by this point, using them as my gorgeous personal fragrance (all those chemical perfumes I used to wear pale in comparison to the scent of my beautiful essential oils) as well as edible grade essential oils in my recipes, smoothies, tea and drinking water. Today, however, I want to share with you several recipes for cleansing everything in our homes from the produce we eat to our floors, bathrooms and laundry too! I use a single blend that does it all. So simple. So clean. And, makes our homes smell absolutely heavenly. Let's begin with why it all matters: Continue reading
