Not Coffee

  • 1/4 cup Reshi Mushroom – chopped small or ground.
  • 1/8 – 1/2 cup ginger chopped small
  • 1 Tablespoon Turmeric (root) Powder (or fresh if available)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper or a few whole corns
  • Dandelion Root fresh or dried – chopped or ground

Bring to 2 quarts of water to a boil, get the ingredients in at some point and turn down heat and simmer for 20 – 40 minutes.

I like to grind stuff in mortar and pestle, along with a little song or chant.

Use any or all of the above ingredients.

We often serve it with about a teaspoon of molasses and some milk or coconut milk.

Dandelion root is a live tonic. Reshi mushrooms have been used in Chinese medicine for centuries.

A Prayer – Mother Wit – Diane Mariechild

Blessed be Creatress of Life whose love forever shines in me. Help me to use your energy to direct my force. Light my path that I may follow it in love, secure in the knowledge that i move from a source deep within me. Let me use my energy to create the world anew. Instill in me an awareness of the rhythms and cycles of Nature so that i may intuitively know the time to build up and the time to tear down; the time to speak and the time to remain silent; the time to move and the time to stand still. Let me sense now and always the depth of our connections. For we are all one and the force that holds us together is love.
