About Me

Relocated here in 2016 from California to Llandrindod Wells, Wales for my son to know his UK family.
Five years have gone by and I continue to learn about the history, beauty and unique people of this magical land.

I like to be outdoors, go to workshops on personal growth, host dinners and dance!

I strive to parent my son (and myself) with care and ease, choosing empathy over ordering each other about. Sometimes he has Couchsurfed and enjoyed Legos or skateboarding with my hosts children, too.

Some background about me. I lived 12 years in a temple as a Hare Krishna monk and traveled internationally teaching mantra meditation. Met my former spouse, forever co-parent and we had Michael 9 years ago. I enjoy hosting people and my place is a large victorian flat with an extra bedroom in on the high street, just 100 yards from train station.

PHILOSOPHY

To live authentically, and it's a lifelong practise. An examined life is worth living.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like to create community and connect with people! Everyone has a gift to give and a life path that is full of unique experiences that enrich our lives too.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I feel truly blessed to have met all the Couch Surfers that I have hosted and the amazing people that I have stayed with. Interesting conversations, laughs, and proof that everything we need comes to us.

WHAT I APPRECIATE

The people who have graciously hosted me and shared fun and enriching experiences. You rock!

Interests

Tennis, hiking and dancing to live music are my favorite!
Just started skateboarding during lockdown - super fun!
I teach the Work of Byron Katie and have attended Human Awareness and Intimacy (HAI) workshops of Stan Dale, Jan Day and ISTA Tantra workshops and I have been active in Mankind Project (New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA) (MKP)) since 2010.
MKP UK&I and MKPUSA.

Music, Movies, and Books

Euphoria, Ozark, Good Place, Young Sheldon, Pulp Fiction, anything that makes me think, cry or laugh.
Any music that makes me dance. Cardi B is impressing me lately.
Loving What Is, Bhagavad Gita, all David Sedaris' books, Non Violent Communication (NVC) stuff.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I ran a Hare Krishna Temple for 9 years in Gainesville, Florida running a program that fed 600 people a day a full vegetarian meal. Super fun.

Teach, Learn, Share

I practice a system of noticing how my thoughts and 'stories' effect my life, my relationships and how these thoughts effect how I perceive the world. I like the saying, "It's not EVENTS that bother us in life, it our THOUGHTS about those events that causes us stress."

Mindfulness, presence, authenticity.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A good meal, friendship, connection and techniques for living stress free.

MY HOME : I have a spare bedroom in bustling, downtown Llandrindod Wells (pop. 5,309). 100 yards from train / bus station.

Countries I’ve Visited

Belgium, Canada, England, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Scotland, Switzerland, Wales
