And what could be healthier or more natural than starting with great sex and moving through to the birthing of natural medicine flowers and yes, real babies?!

The idea that the many facets of yoga can enrich not only our own bodies and Being, but the way we interact and connect with our lover is pure medicine itself. @riverflows tackles this so beautifully. Check out her post here. She writes:
To truly let go of all the things that hold us back in the full beauty of our being with someone we love and into being lips, hands, eyes, tongue in a precious moment to moment experience is extraordinary. Imagine if every time a thought came, such as: 'Will he like me naked?' or 'I am too tired for this' you took a breath, and returned to your skin?
And from lovemaking to the fruits and blooming. From a shared seed to a flower.
In this lovely post @crescendoofpeace celebrates the amazing natural medicine plant, Amaryllis, in a gentle Haiku. Check out her post here. She writes:
In full bloom despite the cold
Living ray of hope
And then from a blooming flower to Birth in the Wild! A man writing about the sacred wonder of natural childbirth is medicine unto and of itself, and @senorcoconut gives us come profound insights. Check out his post here. He writes:
Whatever the reason is for our place in time, our situation, we need to change the fear mindset. We're told birthing in the wild (or at home), outside of the sterilized hospital setting is not safe, not for the mother and not for the babies. Listening to Elena, she explains why the hospital setting isn't needed especially if we know what not to do when it comes to hygiene. And the trauma a child can go through with all these doctors and beeping sounds and wires everywhere is far more dangerous.
