About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hike the Appalachian Trail. Be Wild, Expressive, Fearless.

ABOUT ME

This is my dream, that is already reality, I just have to find my way there:

I am perfect. I am evolving. I live among the forest, ocean, and mountains. Me and my incredible, loving, and humble community live in an earthship that is built from our own hands, creative minds, and resources that Mother Earth provided for us. We thrive off of the sun's energy, our garden, our farm, the mountain springs, our daily spiritual practices, our delicious ayurvedic meals, our music and dancing, our love for life and each other's company. Sometimes we sleep under the stars and howl at the moon, OoOoOOWWWW! We offer retreats, work exchanges, workshops, yoga classes, holistic health coaching, moon lodges, and meals for all yogis, wanderers, travelers, seekers, nature lovers, gardeners, farmers, hikers, wounded souls, musicians, and anyone who's curious. We recognize all dreams are sacred, ALL DREAMS ARE REALITY.

PHILOSOPHY

Maybe you're not the one breathing in and out, perhaps something is breathing you.

Home is where your inner most self can be fully expressed.

"Understanding is but the sum of our misunderstanding." - (Haruki Murakami)

We are human beings, not human doings.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Listen, hug, trust, laugh, learn, share

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Rochester, NY to Sanata Barbara, California and finally to Denver, CO and stopped with couch surfers along the way. This was my first experience with couch surfing and it was an incredible trip! I have also had the pleasure of meeting a few couch surfers in Udaipur, Rajasthan, India and surfed in New Delhi. Now I live in a collective where we are constantly hosting travelers, it's wonderful!

Interests

All the small things that bring great pleasure... morning sounds, moss on trees, clouds taking shape, the movement of smoke coming from an incense stick, observing how emotions and thoughts change so quickly, creating sacred spaces and rituals that add more meaning to life, observing nature, saying good morning to all the trees as I walk to work, dreams, screaming, flailing, aha moments...
