I’m feeling a bit fidgety these days. The past weeks were breathtaking, truly. Finishing touches on my book Makrobiotik – In Fülle Leben are wrapped up, and it’s ready for print. I can’t wait to finally hold it in my hands in three weeks, and I’m so excited to see what you think! On September 23rd, we’re planning a little launch party here in Berlin, so mark your calendars and stop by. Details coming soon.
In the meantime, I spent two weeks freezing my butt off in Denmark with my family. Which was obviously going to happen. It’s actually quite practical when you can wear your cozy winter sweaters all years.
If you’re married to a Dane, inevitable you’ll wind up in Denmark during Summer, enjoying the local 13 degrees. The location of our house was a small comfort – right next to Helena Christensen, whom I love. I told a much younger acquaintance, who was clueless: “who’s that?” And so, I realized that I’ve transitioned, age-wise, into a whole new universe.
Last week, I taught meditation in English at the Copenhagen Yoga Festival, which I haven’t done in ages. A small challenge, but a lovely experience, especially because the Danes were so open and – more importantly – seemed to understand my gibberish. A blessing!
Now I’m planning the macrobiotic week for my blog (which I’m super excited about!) and working on my next book which should be out in March. This one won’t be a cookbook, which is all I’ll say about that for now…
I’m also a little relieved that school’s starting up again – seven weeks of summer break with two kids is no joke.
While I’m sitting, and writing this, I’m listening to Garth Stevenson’s album ‘Flying,’ which my friend Britta in Copenhagen recommended – magical! I can also highly recommend the podcast ‘Insights at the Edge’ by Sounds True. In the mornings, I’ve been practicing Kriyas with Guru Jagat on her channel RA MA TV. It feels great and is super nourishing.

I haven’t been reading the news, and am not letting in things that de-center. This obviously doesn’t work all of the time, but the intention is what’s important. Life is much more pleasant when we don’t subject ourselves to all goings-on, and rather invest our precious time in pursuits that uplift us.
Starting on Monday we’ll be picking up the pace again with some inspiring interviews and fresh impulses, and the macrobiotic week will start soon with delicious recipes that you won’t find in my book. Stay tuned!
