I have just discovered the most scrumptious and oh-so-nutritious substitute for noodles made out of grain or corn. As some of you may know, wheat and other grains have been shown to increase inflammation in the body, and increase the conditions caused by sugar imbalances. Thus, even if you’re allergic to gluten, eating pasta made […]
Many of my women clients, when starting to step into their power, sometimes find that the relationship between them and their intimate partners are running into conflicts. The women start to change but their partners do not step up to the plate as far as “meeting” their partners. More conflicts arise as the women become […]
Through-out the years, I have lost and gained (multiple times) over a hundred pounds, healed through severe health challenges, gained the much-earned laugh lines (aka wrinkles), and watched my body morph into shapes that I would’ve never predicted, even with the best of health practices. And just when I thought I had it all handled, […]
The Ambrosia women’s circles are a delicious, deep way of using feminine practices to transform your relationships, your health, and your life. Every circle is customized to meet your individual needs, in the eyes and reflection of amazing, wise women such as yourself. Note that we don’t do a lot of “processing” or “talking” about […]
Not long ago, I was interviewed by Sara Avant Stover (www.saraavantstover.com) fabulous yogini and author of “The Way of the Happy Woman” about perimenopause. One of the things I continue to be surprised by is how many women don’t know they’re entering into perimenopause, and why it’s important to know when you are, and what […]
Whenever I’m in a “bad” mood, I love making this concoction of healthy fats, antioxidants, energy buzzers, and mood zappers. After drinking it, I feel more alert, clear, refreshed, and rejuvenated. The fats help balance “blood sugar blues” and maintain energy for a longer period of time; the antioxidants in the fruits and veggies give […]
My Mom passed away unexpectedly almost two years ago. I miss her a lot and I think of her every day. We had a good relationship, but typical in the mother-daughter conflicts that would often come up regarding relationships, marriage, children, and career. They say hindsight is 20-20, and I’ve learned some important lessons after […]

When I was in my mid-40’s, I was diagnosed with osteoporosis. I was pretty devastated, and did everything I could to reverse the declining direction of my bone health. That’s when I went back to school and got certified as a nutrition consultant. Today, my bones are in much better shape, and I attribute a […]
I’m a big fan of snacking. Snacking helps stabilize blood sugar levels, keeps our metabolism steady, and satisfies our hunger….if you’re eating snacks that do your body good. Research has shown that eating two snacks a day, in addition to your regular daily meals, was associated with a lower body mass index (BMI) and maintenance […]
A short time ago in class, the subject of monogamy was discussed. My teacher remarked about how the San Francisco Bay Area has such a variety of lifestyles and sub-cultures. He asked, “Some of you may have heard about this strange lifestyle called monogamy. Do any of you prescribe to that?” No one raised their […]
We are now filled to the max with our April 10th men’s/women’s circles, as far as the women go. We still have a few more spaces for men, so if you know of any men who put a priority on consciousness and growing in intimacy, have them check out these circles at: www.afemininefeast.com/programs-services/group-programs/mens-womens-circles/ These circles […]
Avocados are a rich source of mono-saturated fats, vitamins E and B, potassium and fiber. In fact, one cup of avocado has the potassium content of 3 bananas (potassium is an important electrolyte that is often out of balance due to too much sodium intake). Studies also show that they help decrease bad cholesterol and […]
My beloved and I just returned from spending two weeks in Costa Rica. What a mind-bending beautiful place this is, and we only scratched the surface of what we could see! The first week was spent in a tantra retreat with Deva Premal and her husband, Miten, with 25 other couples from around the world. […]
Spring is the perfect time for release and renewal, as our bodies are yearning to cleanse and prepare itself for the budding of new life and possibilities. In Chinese medicine, the liver and the gall bladder are the two organs that are stimulated during this season, thus, it’s a good idea to do whatever you […]
I will be facilitating a women’s passion circle in Berkeley on May 2, 2012. This circle is part of a 3-month series, hosted by Jessica Hadari of Ripe Paradigm and organizer of the popular FEM Talks. The circles are a wonderful container where women can find refuge in their busy lives and commune in sisterhood, […]
Recipe of the Week Smoothie for the Cold I suffered a cold last week and this concoction is one of my long-standing favorites for healing through it fast and supporting my immune system. I use the Health Master, which is a 2 horse-power motor blender that costs one-third the price of a VitaMix. It’s not […]
I recently co-lead An Anger Break-Through workshop. Every year I do this, I am more and more convinced of the power of anger and how it could be used for creative forces rather than destructive forces. But all too often, when anger is unleashed, it comes out in a hurtful way, making the other person […]
90% of the women who see me have some sort of craving, such as sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed carbohydrates (e.g. packaged carbs), and chocolate. Not coincidentally, many of these women have a demon living inside their hearts of “not enoughness”….not pretty enough, not successful enough, not thin enough, not good enough…you get the picture. The […]
Hope for Those Who Are Looking for “The One”… I live in a state which is unlike the majority of the other states. In most of the U.S., people live by the creed, “Live by what is”. But in California, people often live by the creed, “Live by what’s possible”. California is known as the […]

A Feminine Feast Testimonials
"Before I worked with Sabrina, I was experiencing a lot of personal obstacles in my life--in my marriage, my work, my creativity, and my access to personal power, as well as tapping into the unique flavor of my own femininity. After working with her, I am able to tap into a deeper and more profound truth that isn't based on tired cliches, intellectual ideas of the kind of woman I ought to be, or false paradigms that simply don't fit who I am. (more…)Nirmala Nataraj, Performance Artist
"Sabrina, is a generous spirit and an amazing role model who has introduced me to a vibrant community of women. Sabrina has inspired me to look at the world from a variety of perspectives and supported me in ways beyond my imagination. Sabrina is present, available, engaged, loving, authentic, and wise, and I am moved by her compassion, caring, and generosity.”Zoe Galvez – Improvisation Teacher
"Before I began working with Sabrina, I experienced my emotions mainly in my head, as a positive or negative mood, as churning thoughts or tension, as a kind of continual rolling dialogue of words and images. After working with her, I more often experience my emotions as energy, in my body, and am much more able to let that energy run through me. When the emotions are pleasant, I glean more pleasure from them. (more…)Robin R., Editor
"As a circle we practice and refine the art of FEELING - not thinking, not explaining - our feminine truth of the moment, and making an offering of that truth to the circle through our unique voice and bodies. We receive bodily reflection from the other women of both our wholeness and our blind spots to that wholeness; and of relaxing into a feminine pool of YUM that is actually quite hard to describe. All I know is, I emerge and see other women emerge (more…)Shelly Smith - Author & Yoga Teacher
