Blogging from my tent! Fabulous day in the New Forest, now camped by sea under the stars with electric and mobile internet...happiness all round! I feel like the point of a holiday is to connect with the Her beauty, the beauty of the Earth, to introduce our children to their biological mother, Gaia herself.

In the heatwave on gorgeous land near Tunbridge Wells. We had a Food for Consciousness stand and several talks.
Expanding our neural horizons with biological lifestyle:
Biological diet, symbiotic relationship with fruit trees and psychotropic plants, whereby DNA read to full divine potential. Raw alchemy is getting nutritional richness that we can assimilate in our current state whilst maintaining the lightness and pristine nature of food that will enable our neural systems to fire up. The twist is cerebral dominance and reducing it to the point where we can bring our culture out of programming into the light of day, we can get into connection with the bioelectrical aura of the earth, the Gaian network, coming back into feeling and back on track of our magical evolutionary potential
True compassion is not for the unfeeling ego trips of the numbed off human species but a commitment to the dream of what humanity can become. We are not here to pick up broken pieces but to create a new life.

"The Journey of Tunuri and the Blue Deer is the story of Tunuri and his journey with Blue Deer. Tunuri, an inquistive and adventurous Huichol youth, is making a trip to the sacred mountain with the families of his village. A beautiful butterfly catches his attention, and he follows it over many hills and through the forest. Tunuri looks around and realizes that he couldn't see or hear anyone. He is lost.
Something catches Tunuri's eye, and he notices a unusual deer walking toward him which seemed to glow from inside. He knew that this deer was no ordinary animal--the coat was a lovely deep blue color! Magical Blue Deer introduces itself, and tells Tunuri that it knows where his family is. He beckons Tunuri to follow, and wherever the deer stepped, colorful flowers began to grow. Blue Deer leads Tunuri on a journey where he meets Father Sun, Brother Wind, Sister Water, Mother Earth, and Grandfather Fire. Grandfather Fire assures Tunuri that he is never truly alone, even if lost, and gives Tunuri a special task: to share all that he had learned that day with everyone he knows and meets.
The Huichol Indians are among the last of the world's indigenous cultures that have been able to maintain their way of life and spiritual traditions into this new millenium. They live in remote regions of the Sierra Madre Mountains of western Mexico, and although some communities can be reached by car, many of them are still isolated by mountainous terrain. The Huichol have a rich, nature-based spiritual tradition, and The Journey of Tunuri and the Blue Deer is a modern adaptation of one of their traditional stories. Two of the most important elements of the Huichol spiritual tradition is the sacred Blue Deer and the sacred cactus, hikuri, and this story reflects the teaching of how a boy or girl finds his or her task in life by connecting with the powers of nature through their help."

|strawberries in my Somerset garden|
Meanwhile what have I been eating? Right now, although eating some salad and raw vegetable soups too, I have been mainly enjoying the lovely summer fruits, both local and tropical..raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants, cherries (from Cheddar Gorge), mango and durian (bought frozen and thawed). And complemented with my beloved raw dairy produce - local raw Jersey milk made into kefir and local raw Jersey cream. I also have a few strawberries and raspberries grown in my own little garden patch, cucumbers and tomatoes on the way. Even to grow a small amount is a lovely fulfilling connected feeling.

Even occasionally I am having durian and cream for breakfast! Generally durian is a fruit I generally like to eat alone intact but raw Jersey cream and durian seem to have a strange affinity to each other, at least in my taste buds and digestive system, that rich fatty but fresh feeling. I feel euphoric afterwards and nourished for hours. In this photo can you tell where the cream beigns and the durian ends? See what I mean!

|kefir, raw strawberry coulis and raw cream|
So traditional and yet so updated. And so delicious.
Of course not that long ago dairy products such as milk and cream were not pasteurised so all our cream was raw. Traditional diets around the world have taken what is available locally and adapted it to meet our nutritional requirements now that we are away from our wild biological habitats. In the British Isles where we do not get consistent sunshine we have had other sources for vitamin D often through dairy products. Pasteurising or heating them reduces the vitamin D content so is slightly missing the point.
Fruit is a very natural food for humans to eat and strawberries are great as as most berries are with low glycemic indexes (they don't spike blood sugar levels) and with lots of vitamin C and also B17 especially if blended so the seeds become nutritionally available. Throw in some noni and we're home! So this is my recipe:
1 Tbspn sundried noni powder
40g dried mango, soaked
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1 Tbsp raw honey
Just blend together until smooth. If you use a vitamix you can just put in the dried mango as is; with a less powerful blender you are best to soak the dried fruit first in spring water.
Here I served this delicious coulis with kefir sprinkled with lucuma powder and vanilla powder as well of course the dollop of raw cream on top. We have our kefir delivered from Dreamers Farm. You can see a list of raw dairy suppliers here.
