Festival of Lights: A Great Miracle Happened There

Hanukkah is a time for giving and receiving presents and gifts. They are often given on each night. Lots of games are played during the time of Hanukkah. The most popular is ‘dreidel’

It’s a four sided top with a Hebrew letter on each side. The four letter are the first letter of the phrase ‘Nes Gadol Hayah Sham’ which means ‘A great miracle happened there‘ (in Israel, ‘there‘ is changed to ‘here‘ so it’s ‘Nes Gadol Hayah Po‘.

The Festival of Lights remembers the rededication of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. This happened in the 160s BCE/BC (before Jesus was born). (Hanukkah is the Hebrew and Aramaic word for ‘dedication‘.)

Hanukkah last for eight days and starts on the 25th of Kislev. Because the Jewish calendar is lunar (it uses the moon for its dates), Kislev, the month in the Jewish calendar that occurs in late November to late December.

Happy Holidays!

Cooking for your Spirit- ThanksGIVING

In honor of the essence of Thanksgiving, we came up with a few new creative ways to express gratitude to get into the Thanksgiving spirit. Gratitude has been linked to everything from improving happiness, body image, sleep, life, you name it. Instead of consuming spirits we Celebrate this year in the True Spirit of Thanksgiving! It is a gentle reminder to love those at our tables and beyond.

For some a little planning can go a long way especially when you have a history of disordered eating. In the midst of this food-focused holiday event could be far from a relaxing night with friends and family. It is hard to separate events being based in food from the part that is about connecting with people. For those who are trying to prevent triggers to an internal battle with bulumia, binge eating, and anorexia, the holidays are certainly among those experiences to be vulnerable and to know that you are not alone.

Eating disorders often bring about an internal fracturing of mind, body and spirit. It may feel like you have been trapped in your mind by eating disorder thoughts that disconnect you from your body and spirit. Recovery involves reintegrating the mind, body, and spirit, creating an internal sense of wholeness. To embrace this holiday season with the intention of healing  Cooking for your Spirit    is a healthy guide that lends courage and strength when struggling, and gives a way to express gratitude when all is well.

Thanksgiving Blessings,

love, #krishna
