Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

The Paradigm Shift that Blows My Mind......

Updated 01-29-2009 at 01:44 PM by shastastar

A while after I started macrobiotics, people who knew me well and saw me frequently started asking me if I was well, or if I had been ill. The only thing that had changed physically was the way of eating, which led to some weight loss along with the rediscovered need and love for exercise. The biggest change was emotional and spiritual. I wasn’t stressed / hurried / complaining / completely task focused, and looking for some elusive perfection. I was in the moment, smiling, and enjoying life,...

The Drama that is Driving me........

Some people are just really into the drama. Some people are just really into creating the drama. I have enough drama at home with my three kids. I don't need internet drama. I don't need drama at the gym and I don't need drama with the husband.

I think that when something that is so ridiculous that is completely and totally outlandish the best thing to do is to just ignore it completely. But that is me. I have a very thick skin and a very independent head. I feel like if I respond...

John Denver and how I am restless......

All things are constantly changing their yin and yang components.... everything is restless

I have to say that I appreciate John Denver. There I said it. This blog has nothing to do with macrobiotics or Dirk’s books really. There is evidence to suggest that John Denver converted to a macrobiotic lifestyle at some point. John Denver is also called the “Poet of the Planet” because of his strong environmental activism. I don’t want to get into that, or his personal issues...

....And Then I Went Running

The first time I read And Then We Went Fishing it took me about 4-5 hours. I did a quick plot read. I have been blessed with an almost photographic memory although sometimes it will take me weeks or even months to have a complete and full recall of what I have read. In this first read I wasn’t that impressed: birth / death and the cycle / circle of life who cares? The lion king was more entertaining and by far not even my favorite Disney movie.

But then two months later I was...

Macrobiotics, Meditation, and the Exercise of Menstruation

Posted 12-19-2008 at 10:53 PM by shastastar
Updated 12-20-2008 at 03:11 PM by shastastar

So this is my last installment on this topic at least for now. I wanted to finish with this because it has nothing to do with Kushi or Oshawa, and everything to do with our monthly journey through life as women. It is important ( mostly so that I don't get sued) that you consult a doctor before beginning any sort of regular exercise program.

Exercise in the macrobiotic practice is traditionally very limited. We know that when healing with macrobiotics, exercise is limited to the...
