Visionary Walk & Free Your Spirit Flash Mob
My current driving passion is my business. I'm a Visionary Coach & Spiritual Mentor, and every day I have the incredible opportunity to shift someone's world.
Travel has always been a great love. I enjoy exploring and adventuring in new cities, meeting new people, and discovering new passions. I love getting lost and finding things I didn't even realize I was looking for along the way. The people I have come across in my travels have been awesome and inspiring. Everyone I meet seems to propel me forward to some new insight or experience.
I am always living a life of spontaneity and adventure...it's right up there with food, air, and shelter for me. I love exploring new countries and continents where every moment is a new possibility. And I love having the time to write, read, and engage in meaningful conversations on a daily basis.
I never feel more free than when I'm traveling. It gives me the time and opportunity to pursue the things I love.
I travel as much as possible, a month at a time where I can, and try to take what I learn about myself when I'm traveling so I can have the mindset of a traveler when I'm home.
Travel is also alive in my business. I'm planning a coaching adventure sailing to the South Pacific January 2015!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
By being a good guest. By contributing my enthusiasm, spontaneity, skills and knowledge. By being a fun host. By making sure my guests have a good time. By being untypical. By being open, friendly, and willing to learn about all people, all cultures, everywhere. By spreading the word about couchsurfing so others know about it and can participate. By sharing my love of all things related to travel. And, most of all, by inspiring others to stop making excuses and BUY THAT TICKET to wherever they've always wanted to go!
I CouchSurfed in 8 cities in Scandinavia. In Barcelona and in Porto and Lisbon, Portugal. I've also CouchSurfed in Boston, DC, Baltimore, NYC, Toronto, Seattle, and San Diego before I moved here.
I've hosted quite a bit now. And I love it just about as much as surfing. I think in either regard, you're getting back as much as your giving. Always a great experience.
I've also participated in the community, attending and organizing events, all over the world.
Well, obviously, traveling but also hiking, running (I like but don't love - it's good exercise) exploring the city like a tourist and showing others around, theatre, concerts, independent and artsy movies, dancing, Japanese Karaoke, volunteering, baking cookies, trying new foods and restaurants, learning new things, and any activity that brings people together and creates a sense of community.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
In my travels, one of the most amazing things I've experienced again and again is the incredible kindness of strangers.
Teach, Learn, Share
My skills/things I can offer/teach:
-Meditation - guidance and philosophy (I'm a student of Vippassana meditation, just getting into Zen also, and I attended a 6 day teaching by the Dalai Lama in 2008. I've facilitated intros, dharma talks, & mindfulness hikes.)
