Our lives are not our own, from womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.
I own a wellness center and practice Structural Integration in Colorado, Florida, and Brasil. I have made very good friends through CS. Sweet, kind-hearted, fun, intelligent, compassionate , creative people ... i love you brother and sisters.
I value fresh simple foods from the land, a return to community , to hand-made, un-plugged, artisan, permaculture lifestyle. It is my challenge to integrate or balance this modern lifestyle with what the earth needs.
But I also love dark alleyways, kooky folk-art, graffiti, working-class and cosmopolitan nightlife, experimental theater, dancing until dawn, biking all over town and up cloudy mountain peaks.
I live in Brazil aiming to master Forró and working with plant-medicine spiritual communities to create and touch the divine
Gratitude, be nice to people, smile, dance, ride a bike everywhere ,home-cooking with fresh food from the earth and dance dance dance with community.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I tell everybody I know about 3 things in life ... CS traveling, vipassana, and Brasil.
Ask not what CS can do for you, ask what you can do for CS ! Like the things that really matter in life, the more you give to it , the more you receive = CS !
50,000 years ago, about 50 people walked out of africa and populated the rest of the world. It is our nature to migrate and meet the many expressions of humanity in our brothers and sisters around the world.... it is a conscious evolving blessing -our greatest sages,prophets, gods and fools all travelled. The road is life and introduces you to yourself,coming around the corner. Sometimes its painful, sometimes its funny... but somewhere out there is smile, a warm shower and safe place to be tired. We are each a unique history, a fantastically original shape of experiences to be shared..... cheers
