  1. Best herbs for constipation? Currently looking at triphala

    Some ideas for the OP super important: drink more water consistently - if you don't like plain water, then drink flavored sparkling water. suggestion: make a chart and cross off each 8-oz. glass of water you consume, up to the recommended dose linked above. [note: each human has an inborn preference for liquid intake. I know some that don't drink hardly at all. they experience chronic constipation and even eventually have been hospitalized for dehydration. I know others who can't drink enough, are constantly thirsty, due to large body mass or health/medicine issues.] walk regularly apples, pears and other helpful foods senna tisane (full cup for stronger job; half a cup for mild job)

  3. De-caf question?

    Heck no, not trying to scare you. OK? Trooth that it takes up space.
  4. De-caf question?

    Do you mean teeccino? I love their tisanes. Sorry to hear you are anti-microwave. I regularly use mine. So handy.
  5. Opening for another moderator or two

    Who are the current mods? (As I've been away for a bit.) Thanks.
  6. No. Better to hang with nature, the sun, the rain and the rainbows!
  7. What is courage?

    Courage is the sun.
  8. Most every tradition has blind spots that their practitioners cannot see. The sages and adepts of the traditions will have similar blind spots, no matter their claims or level of enlightenment. A tradition does not protect one from deluding oneself. (I have been deluded myself at times.) A tradition is a way to delude oneself, unluckily.
  9. Does luck exist?

    If 'luck' is an inborn quality, surely some have greater or lesser capacities. Good luck discussing this topic!
  10. Tea/Tisane

    Speaking about pu-ehr teas, how do folks break open the brick when the block is insurmountably unbreakable? This year I broke open my first pu-ehr/mum tea. I steamed it repeatedly as I was able to break off pieces. But still it was a challenge. (A hammer to the outside of the block did not break it.)
  11. Peaches and plums

    Peach talk brings back memories. Summer 2019. Vermont, USA. Hosts had a vegetable garden and a peach tree. Breakfast: Ripe peaches on rustic toast. (The hostesses' favorite!) Slightly charred greens with garlic. And eggs. Tea with local honey.

  14. How lazy are you?

  15. For cultivators that enjoy midnight meditation, here is a calculator to determine one’s local midnight solar hour. For time use “00”. https://www.pveducation.org/pvcdrom/properties-of-sunlight/solar-time (If anyone has a better calculator/formula, or more insight, please share.) ** At midnight, the ren & du channels are connected, and energetic flow is smooth. **
