In the Dulce Kitchen with Teresa

On the first Thursday of every month from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Sententia Vera Cultural Hub owner Teresa Carbajal Ravet presents In the Dulce Kitchen with Teresa, a cooking demonstration to experience cultural cooking, explore new tastes, and get participants back into the kitchen.

“Drop by for a cooking demonstration and food tasting of recipes learned from being in the kitchen with mi abuelita as a young immigrant girl,” Carbajal Ravet says.

The presentation is a part of First Thursdays, a day when Dripping Springs businesses come alive with sales, food and drink specials, freebies, and discounts.

In the spirit of First Thursdays and food, Carbajal Ravet heads into the Dulce Kitchen at the Hub to cook up, bake up, or mix up cultural recipes.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a small reusable container to take home some of what is prepared.

Cost: $10. Location: 4002 E. Hwy 290 at Sunset Canyon Drive, Dripping Springs. For more information, call 512-633-4327, email [email protected] or visit SententiaVera.comSententia Vera Cultural Hub - Dripping Springs, TX

Angelic Lightworker Helps to Clear Chakras

 Paula Rayner, angelic lightworker, is offering a promotion for the month of October that will include clearing chakras, grounding and aura work. 

The session includes a grounding meditation and working with guides and angels to clear the eight major chakras that run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. If additional energy work is requested Rayner works with her angels to clear and strengthen the area. She finishes the session with closing and sealing the light work in the body.    

The work is done long distance and is a great opportunity to address areas to improve for clarity, peace of mind and well-being.

Cost: $50 for the session, $30 for additional work. For more information, contact Paula Rayner at 702-807-0864 or email [email protected] Paula Rayner - Austin, TX


Austin Reuse Directory Now Online

Austin EcoNetwork, in association with Austin Resource Recovery, has debuted the Austin Reuse Directory, an online marketplace to donate or sell used items, buy used or upcycled items and rent or repair used items.

The goal of the Directory is to prevent items from ending up in the landfill and to encourage Austinites to recycle and reuse items that can be resold, repaired or upcycled into usable goods. It is estimated that more than $11 million worth of usable goods are disposed of annually in the Austin area.

Resources are filtered by what the potential user wants to do: Get Rid Of (find a place to donate), Buy Something (find vintage, upcycled and reusable goods), Rent Something (find tools or items to rent) or Repair Something (find a place to repair a usable item). Under each category, resources are listed, and a map is displayed based on the user’s location information.

Physician Offers Nutritional Protocols for Cancer in Austin

Patients with cancer and other degenerative conditions can now seek nutritional protocols for treatment from Linda Isaacs, MD, who recently moved her practice to Austin from New York City earlier this year.

For more than 20 years, Isaacs and the late Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez offered individualized protocols involving diet, nutritional supplementation and detoxification—publishing multiple articles in peer-reviewed medical journals with the results. All three areas of the treatment must be followed.

Isaacs continues to offer individualized nutritional protocols for patients with cancer and other illnesses, as well as protocols for health maintenance. In the past patients had to travel to New York City to receive the treatment.

Isaacs is certified by the American Board of Medicine and is currently seeing new patients.
