About Me


To explore, share, create, and heal with friends all over the planet!


Sometimes I feel as though I can inhale the world, and upon exhaling, hear all our voices at once in song. I love big, I go far, I don't have any regrets.
I don't conform or follow the paved road... more like I go where I am called. Listening very carefully, speaking truthfully, and acting rightly are very important to me.
I am doing my best, day by day, and I am in love with life :)


I believe that we are one, that we come from a single source. We are all Gods and Goddesses. I live my life trying to heal and bring light to the people I meet. I live my life as an eternal student learning from all that I come across. I believe in mother earth, that we need to remember our roots, listen to the wind, climb tall trees, and get our feet in the dirt. Working through the delusions of the mind so that I can see truth is a constant excersise.
I am living to share, to heal, to create, and to bring joy. There are so many beautiful supporters!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have just learned about CS2 while researching cheap ways to travel. I am excited to surf with people while in Europe this spring! When I have a place of my own some day, I will definitley host. This is the kind of community I have always hoped for, and am very excited about it!


I have never couchsurfed with people who are registered in this community, although my friends often welcome me into their homes because they know how helpful I am around the house.


Poetry, yoga, healing arts, meditation, music, alternative lifestyles, organic gardening, cheese-making, visual arts (photography, drawing, mixed media), dancing, exploration, acupuncture and alternative medicine, hoola hoops, making new friends!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most recently, I took a greyhound bus across the USA. 3,000 miles to be with a good friend.

Teach, Learn, Share

Right on.
I know how to write well and am a good editor.
I am not certified to teach yoga, but have years of experience.
