How do you feel right now? I’m feeling really peaceful. The hustle and bustle energy that Christmas seems to bring each year has died down, and I’m so relieved. Even though we have chosen not to carry on this tradition for at least five years now, I still feel the intense energy of this time of year. My husband Joe and I don’t buy “presents” for each other, and buy only one for Joey, our 14 year old. This year, we actually didn’t buy him one at all. It’s one of the best decisions we’ve made. The uncomfortable, unnecessary pressure of Christmas consumerism has dissolved almost completely.
I know that New Year’s Eve has yet to come, and I really encourage you to to let this tradition live on.…
In “coming out of the closet,” I am referring to the psychedelic closet, as legendary Rick Doblin has put it. Sometimes I wonder if we’re all in the closet in one way or another. Is there anything that I keep to myself? Yes, there are a few things, but then again, there are always a few people who know. I never keep anything completely to myself. I’ve found it to be a great practice for me-just being open, even if it’s only with one person. I am so grateful for my relationship with my husband Joe, because I feel comfortable and happy to share with him, so many of my experiences and secrets.
One thing that connected Joe and I the day we met was our experiences with LSD.…
determine the sex of.
present something in a more interesting or lively way.
“the department set up a task force to help sex up the concept of conserving water”
When I introduce myself as a “Sensual Foodist” I usually get a reaction, followed by a question. What the hell does that mean? Ever heard of this definition? Presenting something in a more interesting or lively way? I like to talk about food in a more interesting or lively way. It’s just how I feel. I’m passionate about it. I’m passionate about putting something in my body that helps to make me feel amazing-inside and out. Yes, it’s about the sex, too.…
What’s the most excited you’ve ever been while eating? Think of that time. Could you barely get the food in your mouth fast enough, or were you taking all of your sweet time to savor every bite because you just didn’t want to finish? Was it the greatest moment ever? Have you ever had one of these with food?
At Burning Man-just a few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to spend time with a few of my mastermind sisters (a group of incredible entrepreneurs who support each other in current endeavors). Joe and I were sitting, having tea-at the Full Circle Tea House, and I saw one of my girlfriends pop her head in. I rushed over to hug her and noticed that all of my mastermind sisters were in less than a 10
foot radius at that moment.…
This isn’t a usual post. No rants about food, no juicy relationship practices. This is simply a
AND a very important one at that. Wednesday, March 18th is upon us. What does this mean? Irresistible Sensuality is what it means! The lovely Bethanne Wanamaker, (AKA the Edible Goddess) is going to enlighten us with her incredible knowledge of living life to the fullest. Read the following announcement she made on facebook, just today:
“Friends! I’m being interviewed tomorrow on a webinar by my dear friend Lana Baumgartner (aka Sensual Foodist) called “3 Ways to Unleash Your Irresistible Sensuality” ~ Ooooh la la!
I’ll share my wisdom on optimal living at its finest, my perspective on “having it all” + unleashing your wild beautiful natural side.
Last weekend, my husband, Joe and I participated in a Tantric kissing workshop led by the highly skilled Divine Kika. Who could resist a beautiful Brazilian Goddess leading you through intimate practices with your beloved? Well, Joe and I couldn’t. One look at the workshop through a Facebook event page had us hooked. First, I will let you know that it was absolutely wonderful and certainly one of the best date nights that we’ve ever had. It was unique, we were in the company of conscious couples, and we were learning something new — learning something that would enhance our relationship; everything about it was just perfect.
I’d love for you to get a vision of the setting for this perfect evening.…
Top 10 Sensual Foods
These are 10 superfoods that I like to keep stocked in my kitchen, as they are proven to ignite the senses, summon sensuality and provide the body with optimal nourishment.
- Raw Cacao
- Raw Almonds
- Goji Berries
Things to remember: all of these delicious foods are more potent and higher quality when grown organic. Organic farming promotes ideal soil conditions. By purchasing organic, you are voting with your dollars and asking for more nutrient rich soil and in turn, optimal nourishment for you and future generations! If possible, also have these powerful foods fresh, and raw.
Now for the good stuff. Let’s chat about the number one sensual food.
My dear friend, iX-chel Sandivel is a truly driven individual and record breaking athlete. In her competitive running days, she nationally ranked in the 10,000 meters, and placed 11th at the NCAA II Track & Field Championships. She is a former Nike elite runner for “The Janes.” Ix-Chel is now a women’s empowerment coach.
I met iX-Chel in an unsuspecting place and felt an instant connection. She is consistently cultivating her skills and is truly a well-rounded teacher. I love learning from her and we have so much fun together.
Our unsuspecting meeting place was a nail salon in Las Vegas. Both iX-Chel and I visit nail salons once in a blue moon. To add another silly twist to this scenario-my husband came to pick me up at the salon and was waiting for a few minutes near all of the glossy fashion magazines (gotta love him)! …
Have you ever whipped out a Vitamix blender at the farmer’s market for a super fresh smoothie? Neither had I, until I joined forces with Chef Jillian Love! I am absolutely blessed to have this amazing lady in my life. She is dedicated to her cause and she truly walks the walk. She is the founder of the Bay Area Raw, which is an organization that brings together leaders in the conscious cuisine world for events and networking. Jillian is a vegan, raw food chef and has been educating people internationally for over a decade!
My husband Joe, our son Joey, Jillian and I went on a mission to make the ultimate sensual food smoothie in the middle of the Saturday San Mateo farmer’s market.…
