Parsifal holding the Holy Grail

This is an overview with updates from the battleground of the war between genders and a call for peace.

Anger towards diseased forms of the masculine and distrust in the patriarchal state institutions poisoned the public space in my native country, Romania, this summer. Endless debates in media and at the corner store on the ability of the Romanian police...

What are you planting this season? What do you want to see growing and what do you wish to harvest later on in the year? In a few years? What do you envision the next generation will be harvesting? All energy movement starts with intention. 

In qi gong, an embodied spirit practice that connects mind, physical body and spirit body, the mind (yi, intention) leads the qi (vital force), and...

the lily opened this morning

long pistil stretching up to the sun screaming: here, now!

don’t be so shameless, says the stinging nettle

don’t cast your shadow above us 

cut that arrogant drunkenness 

so the timid violet can receive a few rays 

how her delicate body needs some sun love!

I can find thousands of ways to reach where I am needed

laughs the sun

the iris is my sensual rollercoaster 

to...

“Nu plânge micutule

Nu plânge micutule

Ursul danseze pentru tine

Ursul danseze pentru tine!”

(Don’t cry little one

Don't cry little one

The Bear is coming to dance for you

The Bear is coming to dance for you!”

(Romanian Winter Solstice Song)

The bear was watching us from the forest behind the garden. He came close to the garden once or twice, thinking: wild! What garden? Wild! Or at least do th...

Inspiration from an organic artistic community from upstate New York

It was a gloomy Monday morning. I had to go to work, but I wanted to stay home and write. While inspiration and duty were clashing with each other and none was winning, the song said: “Let the music take control/ and feel it down deep in your soul”. I put my writing project on the side, postponed my have-to-go-to-work...

"Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side” - Lou Reed

I've been weeding the garden, burning dead roots and old plant material over the weekend. Removing weeds from the soil is the first necessary step in the preparation of planting a garden and essential for its maintenance. A garden needs space to grow, and its soil needs to be constantly weeded to preserve its vitality - nutrients and...

When the weeds grow on my grave

don’t break your hoe, baby!

Let them grow wild

wild like me, baby!

I put my hands in dirt last weekend. The weeds grew wild over the past two years while the garden has rested. It is deeply touching and sobering to dare to skin off the earth in the preparation of the soil for a plan different than the master plan of nature. It is a statement and a promise th...

“I hope nothing. I fear nothing. I am free.” ― Nikos Kazantzakis

“It’s like I’m cursed!” – she says, stepping in the consultation room with a frail appearance. She came to seek help for insomnia, palpitations, dizzy spells and panic attacks. She is young, beautiful, just graduated and started her nursing career in a well-known New York hospital, and she is getting married soon. But she...

Don't think the garden loses its

ecstasy in winter.  It's quiet, but

the roots are down there riotous. - Rumi

I celebrated last winter solstice in darkness and silence and I spent the first day of the new year in symbolic silence and stillness. I invited winter to guide me through and out the inner stirrings of the mind. I chose silence as the highest form of medicine, for the soul. Silen...
