My mission is to support organic and biodynamic farms, especially smaller farms. I believe that is one of the ways we can end hunger, which has always been my goal. The more small farms we have, who are growing the healthiest food from their heart, the healthier our planet will be, and the more we can share and spread healthy food for all.
I am an NLP Master Practitioner, Therapeutic Imagery Facilitator, I use EFT, and I am currently in Psychic School. I had a Hypnotherapy practice before I began my food journey and created Soup Sorceress. With a creative imagination, I guide people through a journey where they connect to themselves on a deeper level to transform in the direction that is their souls calling. Finding your own answers is key.
My life is full of magical synchronicity, that really amuses me, and I started this blog so that I can share those stories. I developed this reality more deeply from my ten years of living in Topanga and connecting to nature daily. There are more stories, hidden, I’m writing for my book. Sometimes, I share a soup recipe on the blog that goes along with my experience. One day I realized that it wasn’t about being really excited about the synchronicity’s as it was to really live it in dynamic ways. Although, I do experience being elated by it all, because its a reminder of my connection to source; these days I more often prefer to be in a calm space about these experiences.
Topanga Canyon is a magical place, like a portal to another world. It’s in LA, but it’s a hidden forest with it’s own fantastical vibration. I grew up nearby, in Tarzana. The first time I visited Topanga, I was a kid, and my Papa (Grandpa) took us to the Inn of the Seventh Ray. I thought the restaurant was so magical and fancy. It had lights in the trees and our table was next to the creek with frogs singing. Many years later, I had a Son. When he was 2 years old, I was walking on the sidewalk, looking down, thinking, “I have to get out of this. No more city and sidewalks”. I wanted to be close to the creek, hear the frogs in the morning, commune with the trees and the wildlife, and most importantly, raise my Son in that environment. Over the years of living in Topanga I became more connected to nature, which led to being more psychic too.
My stepdad was a doctor, and my mother is a clairvoyant and pranic healer. So health mattered in my home. We had chickens and ducks, and I knew from an early age that the vegetables fresh from our garden were way sweeter than candy. I didn’t like candy much, and I wasn’t allowed to have sodas. I naturally loved crunchy, fresh, healthy, savory foods. If I went to a movie Theater, I wouldn’t eat the popcorn, something felt wrong about it and it made my nose itch. That was before we knew it was just a big pile of GMO’s, saturated in GMO canola oil.
I was 21 when my son Zane was born. I started a hypnotherapy practice, and we found our way up into Topanga. I was living in my dream environment, but at that time there was an issue: there wasn’t any organic food in Topanga, other than some granola and canned foods at the little store. So I started a Farm Box company. I forged relationships with local farmers and started a service that would bring their organically farmed products to the people of Topanga and the surrounding area.
When all of the farm boxes for the week were delivered, I found myself with a surplus of both unique and beautiful vegetables, and immense creative energy. “When life hands you celeriac and yams, make soup!” So the Soup Sorceress came into being, as another way to bring organic food in the canyon. That was before there was organic food available in the local shops. Now, I sell my broths at Erewhon in Calabasas.
Making soup is a creative and restorative process that can include a process of imagination, positive intention, and a real mystical connection to the ingredients. When I started, the challenge was to make something healthy and delicious using only what was left from that week’s boxes. Then I would find a few more unique ingredients at the farmer’s market, which sometimes would come to me in interesting ways. I found that these limitations and openness to letting go into the magical, really spur my creativity.
Each batch of Soup Sorceress soups, stocks, and broths is made with local, organic, magical ingredients and infused with love, imagination, and positive, healing, magic. As far as I’ve seen, I’m the only company making and labeling broth with nutrition facts, where the batch is different every time, to support what’s locally in season.
Soup Sorceress creations can currently be found at Mimosa Cafe in Topanga, Erewhon Market in Calabasas, and the Country Natural Store in Topanga. I also have soups for delivery through Earth Matterz. All of my soups are made of plant-based ingredients, but I do at times make delicious meat stews if the occasion calls for it. Please contact me for more information.
This blog is about magical life synchronicity’s and the medicinal soups inspired through it. Please check back often for new Soup Sorceress inspirations.
I hope that by me being real about my journey and how I’m learning and growing, it can help others too. Or it will at least be quite amusing.
May all beings be blessed, healthy, and happy.
