As I was eating a heart-shaped piece of Kali-Ma yesterday …
I was filled with a gratitude for something that tastes so so good also being so beneficial. Eating it made me happy! I then thought it would be good to remind myself WHY WHY WHY is raw chocolate the way to go and why is it better than mass produced ordinary chocolate. The chocolate we usually eat is roasted – neutered of its nutritional powers. Raw chocolate is nutritionally “intact”. One chemical found in abundance in raw chocolate is tryptophan, a neurotransmitter which creates serotonin, the feel-good chemical that courses through our blood. We think of serotonin as being a brain chemical, but 80% is produced in the gut. Raw cacao is the number one food-based antioxidant – much higher than blueberries or strawberries (oxidation is what naturally happens to cells, and over time this wears out your body, and contributes to disease. There is strong evidence that consuming anti-oxidants helps to control this.) Dark chocolate has gotten a lot of attention as a “health” food in past years, but raw dark chocolate is in another league.
And did I mention how delicious it is?? It is rich but retains a creamy sweetness that makes it unique. Kali-Ma is sweetened with Coconut Palm Nectar and contains no dairy products. It is indeed vegan, raw and organic. You can find it in The Chocolate Shop in Conway Street, in Health Essentials in New Street, in Curiosity Coffee Shop and in Bay Stores in First Tower.
Bags start at around £4.50 and boxes are around £11.50. Click here for more information on Kali-Ma.

Forget Botox, Needles, Pain, Expense …..
The simplest and most relaxing way to rejuvenate your skin and yourself is by having a scalp and face massage!
I love giving face and scalp massages. They are so therapeutic and on so many levels! Not only does the mixture of Swedish and acupressure techniques I use help send clients into dreamland, leaving them totally renewed and completely blissed out at the end of the treatment, this massage also creates many lasting and continued health benefits long after the treatment has ended.
It reduces stress, increase blood circulation and nourishment to all the cells, helps to cure sinusitis, headaches and any stress related imbalances. The lymph nodes present in the chin and jawline areas are stimulated to release lymph fluid that can detoxify the facial area and as these are also reflex points that connect to the whole body, the detox effect stretches far beyond the face.
Having a face and scalp massage alleviates the mood by releasing a whole load of feel good healing chemicals. It boosts chi through the Chinese meridian lines and helps to balance the health of the whole body. It also can also help strained facial muscles to loosen up and relax, thereby reducing wrinkles too 🙂
How is it done?
A face and scalp massage at Earth Beauty involves being in a deeply relaxing and dim candlelit room, lying on a couch with gentle drift-away music in the background. During the massage, I take time to relieve tension in the forehead, eyes, nose, ears, mouth, chin, jawlines, neck, behind the ears, top of the shoulders and all over the head from the back of the neck upwards. Heaven and bliss for the body, mind and spirit! Its time to treat yourself.

I’m so happy to have been lucky enough to stumble across Charlie Morley. It has been SUCH a pleasure to have him back over on Jersey soil to teach again. He has a very unique, open approach to teaching and makes learning about lucid dreaming such a fun and exciting experience.
A lucid dream is a dream in which you have an ‘aha’ moment and realise you are dreaming. My lucid dreaming started many years ago. I did not understand their potential back then. Its only since last October, when I first met Charlie, that I learnt I was nestling a true goldmine inside of me all this time!! Anyone can learn to lucid dream and tap into this goldmine. It has the potential to heal us and bring us closer to our true Buddha natures when we tap in to it. It also increases our ability to bring mindful awareness into our lives. We have the ability to work with unresolved issues, past trauma, psychological archetypes and even improve certain life skills in the lucid dream!! It is a creative and sensory indulgent mystic realm of wonder!!! No wonder Charlie, who is a very accomplished Lucid Dreamer, has a refreshing child like essence to him.
Charlie was asked to spread the teachings of Lucid Dreaming by his Buddhist Teachers so that the modern world could learn to use this technique for self-growth, healing and to engage positively with the universal one-ness that resides in all of us, in our unconscious. And night time, we learn, really is the right time to dive into this place where our imaginations can serve us to reach our highest potential. Charlie has a special interest in teaching us how to integrate our shadowy side through Lucid Dreaming and has also spent a lot of time understanding nightmares and what they mean. Charlie has also released 2 CD’s and has a book coming out in September. I can’t wait to listen to the CDs and get the book!!
We had 15 people who came for the ride …. and a few that had been to the last workshop in November also returned for the ‘Going Deeper’ 2nd Day. We were blessed to have ‘The Isis Centre’ as our teaching ground for the weekend and the weather was bright, fresh and springy! Perhaps we will have him back for more in September around his book launch? And maybe a sleepover too?? Watch this space!! See www.charliemorley.com Charlie has also released 2 CD’s. I can’t wait to listen to the CDs and get the book!!and watch his TED talk too. Great stuff!
Saturday 21st April 2013
This unique workshop is an opportunity to go deeper into the practice and theory of lucid dreaming within the context of the spiritual path. Full of more techniques and perspectives, participants will be guided into the deeper reaches of lucidity training by Buddhist lucid dreaming teacher Charlie Morley.
Charlie says “We’ll explore new techniques and integration methods like dream planning, maintaining lucidity, conscious sleeping and looking at how we can move” beyond lucidity” into the realm of shared dreaming and psychic capacity. This is a great chance to explore some of the deeper insights and more advanced practices which we explore on the 4 day intensive retreats.”
This day is only open to people who have attended the Saturday workshop or a weekend workshop with Charlie before.
About Charlie Morley:
Charlie received the traditional “authorization to teach” from Lama Yeshe Rinpoche in 2008 and was asked to teach by renowned meditation teacher Prof. Rob Nairn who described him as “the most authentic practitioner of lucid dreaming and dream yoga teaching in Europe”. Charlie has been a self taught lucid dreamer since the age of 16 and since then he has run retreats and workshops around the world, co-created the “Mindfulness of Dream and Sleep” program and given the ever first talk on lucid dreaming at the well known “TED” conference.
Returning workshop attendees pay only £50

So there is a void here in Jersey right now since our last dance in December, no ecstatic dance group has been happening. I miss it, we all miss it! The break was needed and hopefully soon I will be able to start a monthly dance group. In the meantime, if anyone wants to start one or hold one that would be amazing! I’m also looking for support for the monthly class. Please contact me if interested!
Well, its been a while! I watched ‘Reversing Diabetes in 30 days’ yesterday. So wonderful!! So inspiring!! And brought lots of tears to my eyes. You can watch it on youtube, just save 90mins and get nice and comfortable.
With each day I am becoming more and more convinced that a raw wholefood plant based diet is our true health elixir. I’m letting go of the frustrations that doctors don’t promote this or even take diet much into account and just focusing now on how I can learn more, heal even more and then serve others by helping inspire and spread this news. I’m also considering selling Kali-Ma so that I can condense my energies and deepen into fewer pursuits. Raw chocolate making will always be a passion of mine, but bringing it into a business takes away time and energy from things which are seeming to be more important right now.
I look forward to the next clients I have into earth beauty that are open and wanting change through their diet, and I bow to those giving it a go in the face of adverse families and little support. There does seem to be a mass engagement with this movement though, I am lucky enough to be seeing it around me, friends, clients, and groups on facebook supporting veganism. The news about the detriments of dairy and meat and white food products is getting out. The educating is happening now and the question is, are we open to hearing it?
