Chanthaburi, Thailand Fruit and Adventure Retreats

I debated back and forth whether I wanted to go to Grant Campbell’s Thailand Fruit and Adventure retreats. After my spiritual experiences in India, raw vegan retreats seemed trivial. I felt I needed to spend time in Nepal in a Buddhist monastery or at a vipassana meditation retreat. I was in super serious spiritual mode. As chance would have it,…

Places Not To Go: Siem Reap/Angkor Wat

After a splendid couple of weeks spent in the beautiful Thai island Koh Mak, my friend Ale and I decided to go to Cambodia for a visa run. Instead of illegally crossing and recrossing the border in a day with a small bribe, we planned to stay in Siem Reap a couple nights to see Angkor Wat and visit Cambodia…

Traditional Hata Yoga

India changed my life. Studying at Shrimath changed my life. Being at Shrimath changed my life. It changed me. It changed everything. Rather, Shrimath facilitated a major internal transformation for me. I feel much more at peace and centered than before I arrived. It provided a safe space and container within which I was able to study, practice, learn, and…

Clearing Memories & Letting Go: A Nonlinear Perspective

As I proceed forward along the yogic path, memories emerge from subconscious storage into the conscious mind. They dislodge from the safety of their compartments where they indirectly influence thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Memories visit my inner eye clear as day. I see the situation, surroundings, and people involved, myself included. I smell the smells. Hear the sounds. Feel the feelings.…

Two Types of Massage

Yesterday I received a massage that moved a massive amount of energy. Ever received one like that?  When I receive bodywork, I notice the distinction between bodywork only and bodywork combined with energy healing. There is a difference, and to my sensitive nature, it is huge! When the therapist is giving bodywork only, the massage tends to feel good. It’s…

Chunky Coconut Curry

This may be the best thing I’ve ever made… Before mushing it all together: After mushing it all together: Since I sold and stored everything that didn’t fit in my backpack and traveled to southeast Asia, I have really missed playing in the kitchen! It is definitely a fulfilling creative outlet for me and a way that I show myself…

Rainforest download: We all come in with enough energy to sustain ourselves because we are ALL ONE

I took a walk through the jungle today in a new part of the island for me. I passed through a residential area with an abundance of fruit trees. Sprouted and fresh coconuts littered the ground. Jackfruit, limes, bananas, papaya, and citrus dangled from lush, dense tropical trees. I walked up and down hills past cozy resorts like ghost towns.…

Guilt and Gratitude for the Ocean

Today I feel the ocean’s pain. Grey skies and cloudy mist encapsulate the southern beaches of Koh Chang, echoing her sadness. In her ever-welcoming embrace, I stare into endless platinum waves. Her frequency remains high despite all that we do. High enough to continue generating and raising the frequency of all life on the planet.  We all come from her.…
