About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My mission is to find myself in others.

ABOUT ME

I'm very laid back. I've lived in Kitchener Waterloo for almost my entire life, so I know it well. I enjoy traveling but I'm finding it equally important to build community at home. I find community in yoga, healthy lifestyle choices, festivals, dancing.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that intention is everything, we all enjoy varying degrees of awareness, therefore some of us are more aware of our intentions then others. With this in mind I try to be compassionate to those around me as well as myself. I understand that in the end we are all headed in the same direction and it is a very difficult journey. I want to work towards a deeper understanding of this connectivity because it will allow me to live with more compassion.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted about a dozen people.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Up until this point I have yet to do any couchsurfing. I've hosted but have yet to ride the wave myself.

Interests

I enjoy indoor wall climbing and yoga. I've recently gotten involved in a men's group and it has opened my eyes to a whole new world. One of my favorite things to do is to cook, it is one of the ways that I can be intentional about spending time with myself. Meditation is a grounding force in my life but I'm also very interested in movement; dance, yoga, rolling around on the floor - whatever :) I've come to appreciate how nourishing walking is for my body over the past few years and I feel strongest when I am walking distances regularly.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently my favorite books are: I Am That, Yoga and the Quest for the True Self , I Don't Want to Talk About It, Buddhism without Beliefs.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Biked naked through the streets of Toronto for a couple of hours on a Saturday afternoon - 4 times!

Teach, Learn, Share

I know my yoga, healthy eating, eastern philosophy and I would like to practice my spanish. I'm always looking to meet people who can open my mind up to new perspectives. I'm realizing that at this point in my life learning to become a better listener is the same as becoming better at life.
