Its been a few months since last I stopped and wrote to the public. I don’t know why I waited so long, as many interesting and noteworthy things have occurred. It took some urgency in my life to get back into gear, wake up, and get going with the passions of my life. (see http://tinyurl.com/js4gbdw for my article on Urgency)
I have just set off for 8 months of travel:
First stop, Boulder Colorado for 10 days of Path of Love (my 3rd staffing)
Japan for the fall color change, hot springs, and the pure aesthetic beauty.
India for the Osho meditation community, sitting in Rishikesh with the masters, Indian food, and the vibrancy of life in every face I meet.
Israel to visit my soul brother Adam.
Malta to spend a month with my father abroad which hasn’t occurred since Paris circa 15 years old.
The urgency to travel came from spending the winter in SLC attending massage therapy school. By choice I would spend the winter in India with my meditation community, but this year I developed my career and spent the 10 months to get licensed to perform body work in the United States. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about India as part of my soul lives there in the colorful streets, spirituality, and vibrancy that is so tangible.
I graduated in style and began to work as a healer in an official capacity for the first time in my life. Every moment couldn’t be more rewarding to work with people’s bodies and energy to help them achieve well being. I found having a “job” to be rewarding again and my private practice took off quickly and gave me the confidence that I could apply my trade anywhere with great success.
While I was surviving being in school again, I found community through Ecstatic Dance. We danced for two hours each Sunday morning and shared ourselves, brunch, healing, and friendship. It was a beautiful outlet for expression and sharing our talents and passions in life. My closest friends came out of this dance church and I couldn’t be happier to know each and every one of you.
I began to test the waters of being a meditation teacher and found it to my liking. Helping people break down barriers and find their emotions and humanity is a beautiful gift I am so happy I was able to provide. My friends Emrys and JP also started Lotus Bowls which is dedicated to helping people get Crystal Singing Bowls into their lives and healing work. In this effort I got to expand my photographic artistry and become a sound healer at the same time. Again, reaching people with healing experiences was beginning to become a theme in my life and was met with great success.
So right when everything was beginning to get awesome. Just as I was waking up to all the potential of SLC, it was time to leave again. Sometimes I feel this is foolish, but I never regret what I learn on the road and it only helps me deepen my experience when I return. So I head out to nourish myself in Japan. Deepen my work and connection to spirit in India and enjoy some friendship and family time in Israel and Malta. I know when I get back that deepening into my career will be easier than ever and my new direction of becoming a teacher and facilitator will begin in earnest.
So now the stage is set for months of travel and work. Some major posts are already in the works with titles such as “How to travel anywhere in the world for under 1000$ a month”, and “My definitive guide to fall in Japan: Between Tokyo and Kyoto”, and “Path of Love Staffing round 3”.
I hope you will be able to receive some of the wisdom I have to share and that I can reach your lives even while distant. I love and miss all my dear friend family all around the world and endeavor to become the best person I can be to help make this life even more beautiful. Much love and blessings, and off I fly into the unknown.
