The Barista

As many of you know, I love frequenting a local Starbucks for what I like to call my morning ritual.  Over time I found the one I like most.  As we know, all Starbucks are not created equal.  They may all look similar, but each one has its own energy signature.

The staff is friendly, and as I observe them over time, I notice they are a close-knit group and seem to enjoy working together.  Of course that trickles down to the customer.  We can sense those things and it can make for a much more welcoming experience.

Embrace Your Sacred Sensuality

Traditionally spirituality and sensuality were polar opposites.  Spiritual practices for the most part didn’t involve the sensual nature of the physical body, and of life itself.  In fact, the body was seen as impure, as base, and as something that just got in the way of being spiritual.  It was seen as something to ‘transcend’.  It seemed higher spiritual ideals did not include enjoying a sensual lifestyle!  Of savoring life through all the physical senses.
