HOW TO MAKE: Turmeric and Honey Blend
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties that can help to reduce inflammation in the gut, while honey contains prebiotics that can help to nourish good gut bacteria. This combination can help to improve digestive health and support the immune system. Antiseptic Properties: Turmeric and honey have antiseptic properties that can help to protect against infections. The combination of the two can help to cleanse the body of harmful bacteria and toxins. It can also help to reduce the risk of infections and promote overall health. Antifungal Properties: Turmeric and honey are both antifungal, making them a powerful combination for fighting fungal infections.
This combination can help to reduce the risk of candida overgrowth and other fungal infections, and support a healthy gut. Endless Shelf Life: Another great benefit of turmeric and honey is that it has virtually an endless shelf life. The oldest honey ever discovered is 2000 years old and is still theoretically edible. This means that you can always have this mixture on hand, ready to use whenever you need it. In conclusion, the combination of turmeric and honey is a powerful mixture that offers numerous health benefits, including improved gut health and microbiome, antiseptic and antifungal properties, and an endless shelf life. If you're looking for a natural way to support your health, this mixture is definitely worth a try!

some of the past online workshops
RÚME when it just started
How it all started
Such fun workshop! Multicultural one!
And the result was many types and variations for us and the participants. First major experience with setting up zoom, fb live etc while leading a workshop and managing kids. Mostly two at a time.
The workshop that did not happen. Many reasons why but most important one being that our family researched and said goodbyes to our juicer. Because fibres. Because fruit and veg are wholesome and should be consumed as such.
The workshop that required to create an email for our group! Happy days! Now people could apply to attend not only through PMs and DMs!
As Christmas had approached we decided the banner of our FB group needs to represent it. Much better job at Canva.com this time!
As clumsy as this first image may look, this in fact is the very first try to sort something out about RÚME on canva.com The background is a blurred photo of the place back in Latvia where I grew up. And the actual design of the logo - I refuse to comment on it.
Excited for the next hour or so.
For thousands of years, the Summer Solstice has been celebrated in Ireland as a time of rebirth and flourishing. Early Pagan and Druid settlers revered the date as a significant time in the natural and spiritual world when a line is drawn between light and dark on earth.
The date officially marks the longest day and shortest night of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, and Irish people have been celebrating the festival of Litha (which means light), on the eve of the solstice date, as far back as records go.
Litha is an official Celtic Pagan festival dedicated to celebrating the life-giving, and regenerative, healing powers of the sun. In fact, the festival is still celebrated all over Ireland today at ancient stone circles, and also at Stonehenge in England. The festival originates from the fact that the Celtic people of Ireland depended heavily on agriculture for survival, and were therefore very reliant on good weather and the natural changing of the seasons for healthy crops. Furthermore, people believed that celebratory rituals performed at Litha would encourage fruitful farming, healthy cattle, and prosperity. For example, Celtic people lit large bonfires on hilltops to signify the sun burning brightly at its highest point, and also as a way to worship the Celtic sun God, Lugh. The celebrations carried on all through the night with great feasts, music, and dancing until sunrise, and were a way of welcoming the longest day.
Weddings were also common during Litha and the bride and groom were often encouraged to jump across flames to ensure a happy and healthy marriage. Celtic Druids also saw the Summer Solstice as a time to celebrate the triumph of light over dark, with the extra-long days of sunshine thought to banish dark spirits. It was also viewed as a time of growth, fertility, life, and rebirth. However, parallel to the celebration of light, there was also a recognition that this date, in turn also heralded the slow return back to the dark nights of winter. To symbolize this, it was a Celtic ritual at Litha to roll burning wooden circles, down the hilltop to signify the light slowly returning to dark again, as part of the natural circle of life.Christians, Pagans, and Druids Still Celebrate the Summer Solstice
In order to integrate into the existing culture at the time, Christians in Ireland adopted many of these midsummer festivities and decided to call the eve of the Summer Solstice, “St. John’s Night.” To this day, Christians, Pagans, and Druids gather together in Ireland to celebrate the Summer Solstice in this way; bonfires are still lit on hilltops and The Irish Environmental Protection Agency even declared an exemption for the lighting of bonfires on this date.
One of the most notable places for gatherings and celebrations of the Summer Solstice in Ireland can be seen each year at a large historical mound and tomb, called Newgrange, in County Meath. Newgrange is a World Heritage Site and is the burial tomb for an ancient King of Ireland. The tomb dates back to 3,200 BC, making it older than Stonehenge and The Great Pyramids of Giza. Both the winter and Summer Solstices are celebrated here and the entrance stones are astronomically aligned with the sun, so that at sunrise on the Winter Solstice, the sun illuminates the entrance passage to the tomb with a beam of light.
However, Newgrange is just one of the sites for Summer Solstice celebrations in Ireland. People also gather at ancient stone circles at The Hill of Tara and Carrowkeel in County Sligo to mark the occasion. With almost 200 stone circles still standing across Ireland, you’re never too far away from one. Furthermore, the stones at Carrowkeel are also astronomically aligned with the sun, so that the inner chamber is illuminated at the Summer Solstice, just like Newgrange is at the Winter Solstice.https://nowwithpurpose.com/the-summer-solstice-how-the-irish-do-it/
And how do You feel about burnout? Has it reached You yet since the pandemic. Maybe some other time during Your personal or professional experiences?
I found this article to be an excellent read on this topic. Spare 3 minutes and read through. And let me know what You think.
It was Jung’s supposition that if you didn’t embrace the entirety of your being, you couldn’t live a full and unfettered life. “Until you make the unconscious, conscious, it will direct your life,” he tendered, “and you will call it fate.” A shadow can lead to limiting beliefs, which may snowball into all manner of undesirable outcomes: self-sabotage, destructive behaviour, ruined relationships.
The idea of shadow work, then, is acknowledging all parts of the psyche — effectively bringing what is dark into the light. You can’t have balance without both the dark and the light. Shadow work actualizes living a multi-faceted life that incorporates the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly, the embarrassing, the uncertain. All of it! (2)
That all being a mere technical description for You to rise some questions (perhaps?).
My goal today is more about reaching one simple (?) goal.
I wish to think about the shadow. Take an object, draw its shadow and observe it. And I also wish to pander on a thought about what assumptions I have about my surroundings and how it affects me as a parent. I even might do this drawing activity with my littles come tomorrow. And I might even ask them what they think about shadows.
I will gladly hear about what thoughts arose at Your end. Share them in comments below.
