In celebration of this day of all things women, I wanted to share a Rasa policy we recently rolled out to the bleeders on our team (side note: we lovingly acknowledge that not all who bleed are women, and not all women bleed. 💛)
Modern life isn’t kind to our nervous systems. Every day at 2PM, our team has the option to do a “Rasa moment.” It’s a way for our team to connect to our Truest Selves and each other. I’ve recorded one for you, too, here.
Our team is committed to both healthily processing the emotions that keep arising—and then choosing to respond from a place of groundedness and values rather than reactivity. We are supremely imperfect at this and we are doing our best.
No matter how this year has been for you personally, it might be that gratitude is a little, ahem, further under the surface than usual. This 8 minute mini-meditation is an easy gateway into the love and happiness that are inherent within, no matter your current mood.
Rasa’s Autumnal playlist is Called Elderberry Bear — a nod to the themes of our Elderberry Boost launch, and the way the herb shows up as a magical force in folklore, fairytales, and ancient herbal wisdom.
Through heartbreak and laughter, we just keep going; greeting the sun with each new day. Here’s what’s healing us, making us quake with irreverent laughter, and humbling us as we move forward, step-by-step.
Our Clinical Herbalist sits down with Lopa to discuss all things Elderberry! - Elderberry’s amazing properties (hot damn they are impressive!) - The deal with “fake” elderberry & real elderberry, plus how we source and quality control to deliver high-potency extracts & herbs (we are obsessive!) - Why we super-duper need adaptogens in 2020
