Raw Vegan “Refried Beans”

Happy New Moon in Libra!   As the scales of Libra are said to symbolise balance, what better way to increase stability and equilibrium in one’s life than to create (and maintain) ongoing patterns of mindful eating for health and positive development in all aspects of our existence? Please consider this: Our experiences on Earth are not merely limited to our own uniquely isolated perceptions of such, but more of an intricate weaving of collective evolution and molecular events which cumulatively affect...
