What is meditation?

Freedom.

You already have all of the chutzpah within. 

Meditation allows you to unlock that inner freedom allowing your mind to traverse to a higher field of awareness.

Sounds wild right?

No wilder than your body being made of stardust and no wilder than the organic supercomputer within your skull.

We all Breathe. We all experience emotions.

Meditation can help with relaxation, understanding your own mind better and becoming less reactive to situations. 

With consistency, compassion and an open mind, meditation can teach you to concentrate, raise your emotional intelligence, confidence, and, overall wellbeing. 

It is learning to expect nothing but remaining open to everything. 

And that my friends, is powerful.

Travelling Mindfully

Travelling is the perfect opportunity to break out of the norm and give your mind and body some new data and information to digest.

Travelling Mindfully enables us to really immerse ourselves in the culture of the land we are witnessing.

Next time you are fortunate enough to experience Wanderlust, take a moment to be present and to really enjoy your surrounds.

Here are a few little strategies to get you on your way!

🌏Having to be “on” like when in a busy airport, new environment or out of your norm will cause your breath to be excited and shallow.

Stay grounded by  breathing deeply and slowly. I do this when walking into massive tourist crowds, when taking off and landing and whenever I’m in line waiting (which can be often as a traveller)!

🌏Put down the camera. Put down the phone. Not everything needs to be splashed across your socials. Instead of witnessing the magic through your lens, witness it through your eyes. Take in the sights and sounds and notice what is around you instead of reliving it through your camera roll later. Be present. Be in the moment.


🌏 Practice going beyond the surface to consider the gift of life and appreciating the opportunity to be able to #travel
Part of the joy we discover while traveling is how the world is a smaller place than we first thought, and that all people share beautiful things in common like the joy of music and food!


🌏 A friendly smile is a universal gesture that knows no borders - so...S M I L E :P


🌍 Traveling for the sake of wanderlust is truly a luxury. It takes resources like money and time. It takes courage and curiosity. Every weird food, strange ritual, odd sign… Observe and appreciate that your journey is a great gift you receive each time you step outside of your norm!
