On the community of kundalini yoga

In the beginning of the horrendous year 2020 I started teaching a weekly kundalini yoga class. A few months later I radically quit. What happened? I may call myself naive, but it was not without a backstory. I completed the kundalini yoga teacher training the year before and wanted to grow. Now things took a […]

Return to the blogosphere

I hereby announce that I am returning to the blogosphere. My ship Munching on a Dream has been parked for some time, while I was flying with a yoga website and on social media. Those other experiences were just not the same, and I miss this piece of online personal space, of peace and quiet. […]

On my path & the kundalini yoga chapter

After my latest burst of inspiration for my blog in November, I have again found other inspirations elsewhere. I drifted away, again. I came back now because I keep having this need to justify and explain my writing behaviour and patterns. This comes forth of my need to live my soul purpose and to justify […]

The Goddess at Boom Festival 2018

Boom Festival 2018 was absolutely beautiful. It took place back in the summer, and I have been wanting to share one glorious thing.

Female Power Friday #03

Evolution! From this edition onward this rubric is about female power instead of female empowerment. This (Dutch) One World article explains that the word ’empowerment’ implies that the person ‘to be empowered’ does not already have power (of their own). I am not sure to which extent the use of this word is problematic, however, […]

Female Empowerment Friday #02

Look who’s back?! This rubric is fun and needed. Noteworthy is that it came to me as Feminist Friday, but I figured that the word feminism scares some people off. So using that word would require a little disclaimer – which I ended up adding to Edition #01 anyway, but without the -ism. I write and […]

Belated but beloved foods (and harvest!)

It’s amazing how sometimes I draft a blog post and then completely forget about it! Later I find it and get surprised by how nice it is. This juicy food-picture line-up here even dates back to last February! It includes dishes that were consumed with Christmas ’17, can you believe it?! Crazy stuff. This is […]
