This week, we’re continuing with part two of my series on How to Magnify Your Intuition.
Why bother with this intuition stuff anyway?
Imagine making decisions effortlessly, living with less stress, and feeling confident that you’re on track with life. Just like moving your body, the more you exercise your intuition, the stronger it will become and the easier, more relaxed, and enjoyable your life will be.
Do you ever struggle to know which path to take or how to respond to a situation? The easiest way to find the answer is to ask your intuition. If you think you’re not intuitive or aren’t quite sure how to listen to that inner voice, read on.
Intuition is an automatic tool just waiting to be used. And everyone can connect to it. The key is to practice so you can recognize that inner knowing when it shows up.
In this two-part series, we’ll explore the sixth sense and what you...
This satisfying alternative to traditional peanut sauce I was honored to share with Robin Robertson for her cookbook, Nut Butter Universe, blends ginger, garlic, and sesame, to create a robust flavor combination that will have everyone in your family (including kids!) clamoring for more.
Noodles & Greens in Gingery Almond Sauce
By Allison Rivers Samson
12 ounces whole-grain gluten-free spaghetti or rice noodles
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
This hearty recipe offers several chances to decide just how “from scratch” you want your baking to be. The vegetable broth can be either homemade or store-bought, as can the non-dairy milk. Even if you decide to make everything from scratch, the preparatory steps including cooking the potatoes, cooking the lentils, and making the broth, can be done well in advance.
Once those steps are done, the rest of the recipe is fairly simple and comes together quickly.
An exceptionally fulfilling loaf loaded with brown rice, lentils, and mushrooms for a toothsome texture with a flavorful sauce that's slightly sweet, salty, and smoky. Perfect for any dinner, or top with gravy for a delectable Thanksgiving entrée!

Just before the explosion of the Grunge Scene in Seattle, I left for New York with my then-boyfriend's rock band.
On a Greyhound Bus, we rode to the place where they would become rock stars. I went not as "the girlfriend," but to learn to be a band manager. After days on that bus, I discovered that it was possible for my derrière to be equally sore and numb.
We landed in Harlem in 1989 where I shared a studio apartment with five long-haired guys. Yes,...
If you feel hopeless about climate concerns, you're not alone.
The Climate Crisis is being talked about more than ever. And with good reason.
We need to be talking about this. We need to be taking action. NOW. But what can one person do?
From February through June of this year, I dove deep with a small group in a sermon-writing seminar offered by Rev. Kevin Tarsa, the minister at our Unitarian Universalist Community of the Mountains, here in Grass Valley, California.
For the past several years, my tradition at Vegan Summerfest has been to teach a Flash Mob song to everyone who comes to my Nia classes at the conference.
This year, I was lucky enough to get a video of the whole song: Give Love, by one of my favorite artists, Andy Grammer (he's on tour with a new album coming out soon—he and his amazing band are not-to-be-missed, so check 'em out if they come to your town).
Vegan Summerfest is a 5-day conference and on the last night, we have a big...
Lately, many people have been asking me for help and resources to learn how to go vegan. Since this has been a passion of mine since 1997, I’m overjoyed at the request.
I’m all about efficiency, and I know that if ten people are asking, at least five times more folks have the same question. If you're one of them, here are my hints to help you on your way. And if you're already there, please share!
IS IT HARD TO GO VEGAN?
One of my friends recently wrote to me feeling...
Want to know how it would feel if you moved yourself to the top of your priority list, could lovingly say "no" to what's not in alignment, and lived your life "on purpose?"
