Today was Epic

Life on an Island
{ 0 }

Today was epic in so many ways, most of them interstellar. When I was drinking my turmeric ginger tea this morning, as one does, I could really feel the potency of it merging with my cells and turning me into a superhuman. Sort of. The veils were pretty thin apparently. Yoga got interesting. Later I met my darling Jessamy and the delightful little Iggy pepper for a lunch of hummus veg and mushroom burgers. Yum. Sitting under a pagoda slash time machine by the sea we shared some of the latest goings on. I think we reached new levels of [...]

Herbal Steam Magic

{ 0 }

We almost didn’t go to the sauna last night. It’s a longer than usual drive for nightly adventure on this little island. I’m glad we pushed ourselves to get there. It was an unforgettable night. My dear friend Jess and I arrived early and had a few sweats in the sauna to loosen up. The sauna is actually a herbal steam dome but we just call it “the sauna”, though it’s so much more than that. The place was created by a cool older hippie dude who clearly knows what it means to chill out. At the center of it all is [...]

Celebrating Women!

My beautiful friend Jessamy took a boat over from the island where she lives and has come to stay for three weeks. It’s so awesome to have her here. She is an old friend I met years ago on Koh Tao  and although we now live on different islands our connection seems to deepen more and more as we develop in our own unique ways. Yesterday we decided to join a dance workshop that happens every Friday with a group of amazing women. We had no idea what to expect, but I knew it was going to be incredible, mostly [...]

Death. It will happen to you.

Death. Remember it. Every Day. Sounds a little morbid, but contemplating death is one of the most important practices in my life. At the age of 6 when I heard my father burst into tears at the unexpected news of his father’s death I wondered if I was supposed to feel sad too. I tried really hard to cry but I couldn’t. I guess I've been thinking about death since that day. 6 years later I watched my Grandmother die of cancer. It tore me apart. I’d never felt such deep pain before. I didn’t tell anyone how I felt.

Warning: Banana Ice Cream Will Change Your Life

{ 0 }

I don’t remember when exactly I stopped eating and drinking dairy. I know it happened sometime after watching one of those documentaries where they show the awfulness of what is happening to dairy cows on farms. Yikes! The hardest part of letting go of milk was saying goodbye to ice-cream. I could eat half the tub when no one was looking. I used to suffer from sinus issues all the time, especially as a kid. Now as a child I drank a glass of milk a day so I’m wondering if the disappearance of my sinus troubles has to do [...]
