Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I LOVE couchsurfing. I recommend it to everyone and use it as often as possible! I've met so many wise and beautiful souls in this world through CS.

Interests

Ashtanga yoga, tea, gardening, languages, veg*nism/animal rights, ahimsa, Zen, insect life, beards, the moon, the ocean, forests, glasses, the written word, the local organic food movement, living off the grid, shamanism, seed sprouting, deconstructing social indoctrination, the evolution of human consciousness, relativity, avoiding doctrines and dogma, freeganism, and freedom.

I also have a band called Luna Moth. We play psychedelic soul dream pop. Listening to my music is probably a good way to get to know me before I sleep on your couch or floor :)
