About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To know the rules well so I can break them properly.

ABOUT ME

Basically a very disciplined hippy.

PHILOSOPHY

Unconditional love as a life path. The only thing I hold to be an absolute truth is that all which is positive follows from this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My Grandfather and I have taken in plenty of Couchsurfers and other travelers over the years. We stay in contact with most of our guests and hosts. Many have even become extended family :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Wonderful at best, a learning experience at worst. Nothing awful.

Interests

Yoga, Aikido, Gong Fu; massage and body work; practicing new-school anthropology , language learning, experimental cooking; running, swimming, riding my bike; living in a tent instead of paying rent and transgressing other unjust laws where practical; being in mountains, forests, water, and outside in general. Doing whatever sustains my attention to the presence of my body-mind-breath-ecology existence.

It is easy to do and be. Try not doing or being: this is the most difficult.

Professionally, I'm in community health care. (I am not pretentious enough to pretend I've more than scratched the surface of Yoga and therefore can not honestly call myself a "yoga teacher.") Currently I'm an instructor with the Adaptive Yoga Project in Santa Cruz, California. We work with folks and youths with physical and mental handicaps. In the long-term, I want to open a K-12 school that integrates yoga and martial arts training into an academic curriculum.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I crawled out of another human being after she grew me for 9 months in her tummy.

Teach, Learn, Share

Sure.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I consider myself both a good host and guest. Aside from my professional skills, I can offer help around the house or with odd jobs. I like learning new skills.

If nothing else, I can offer good conversation :)
