Hi, I'm Rochie.

It's nice to meet you.

I’m so glad you’re here.

Join me in my weekly musings on the magic in my challah bowl!

Warmth, Sweetness and Soul are the perfect recipe for challah—and as it turns out—for nurturing as well.

In my weekly challah baking I am endlessly awakened to the potential for ever more mindful nurturing.


Life gets busy and crazy and sometimes we forget to stop and smell the challah dough.

Join me in exploring the wisdom in our challah bowl, and in discovering that what emerges from the depths of this bowl is always so much greater than what we put in.

The Rising Life is a comparative study on challah baking and nurturing, reminding us to reflect and realign to ensure that we are always giving the best of ourselves, so that we, and the ones we love - will Rise

Want to meet in person? I'd love that.
Here's where you can find me.
