  • Turn up your volume to hear a very soothing sound. From Wild Basin Nature Preserve. When you miss the exit to yoga, go for a hike instead! #wildbasin #gratefulforrain #waterislife #atx #natureinthecity #babblingbrook
  • Fire ceremony with full moon in the background from my Full Moon women’s gathering last night. I drove across town and to be with women I mostly didn’t know to sit and commune around the elements. I feel it’s important for women to be together in this way even if it’s uncomfortable and unfamiliar at first. When women come together and reunite as sisters and have each other’s back and support each other instead of being competitors that’s what heals the world and is one of the most powerful things we can do. Aho! #womenscircle #sistercircle #fireceremony #fullmoon #fall #metal #lungs #seasonchange #fallhasarrived #thankgod #healing #sacredconnections #ancientrituals #connection #ceremony #ritual #earth #fire #water #air
  • Chicken Pesto Zoodle Jars! Using up the last of the summer squash and pesto from my garden. Simple - make Zoodles, toss with pesto. Pan fry chicken breasts in butter with salt and pepper and bit of herbs de Provence. Slice up chicken and place over pesto coated Zoodles in a jar. Top with good olive oil and a dash of red chili flakes. Yum!
  • My cabana at Haramara Retreat in Mexico last week. One whole wall was just open air with a view of the jungle and ocean. Off the grid, no electricity, no key, no lock, just lanterns and candles for light at night. Open air shower. Surprisingly few mosquitoes. Exotic birds with unusual bird calls. Quite beautiful. My life is amazing. #feelingblessed #grateful #beautyseeker #offthegrid #haramara #yoga #rain #hurricanecoming #madeitoutintime #jungle #ocean #huichol #organicfood #healing
  • But of course we should have permanent flags in the street...why you ask, oh, because it’s Mexico. That’s right! #color #vivid #life #viva #mexico #vivalamexico #flagsinthesky #sayulita #beauty
  • There is something so incredibly refreshing about Mexico that I never experience in the states and that is the freedom of being that is part of life here. For example, it’s normal and acceptable to set up a card table and sell slices of cake or sell tacos out of a cooler out of the back of your truck or to sell some grilled chicken on the street or to sell some homemade smoothies from your little table on the corner. This would never fly in the states as we have mountains of rules and regulations of why this could not happen. Tonight at dinner a dog came and sat by our table the whole night. The waitress eventually came and asked us if we were finished with the dog. Such an amusing question. There are fruit trucks rolling by announcing their fruit for sell on a loud speaker and other trucks announcing the seafood they have for sell. And other trucks announcing it’s trash day and remember to take out your trash. All these things make me smile and laugh. Life is so alive here. We ate the most incredible street tacos for only $3.00 which happened to be the best meal here.  Along with the freedom and totally relaxed vibe is the down side of dog poop on the streets, cracked and uneven sidewalks, holes in the streets, poverty, water that’s not clean enough to drink, crime, drug lords. Can there be a balance between the sterile lonely and often isolated world of the states and the rich vibrant community of Mexico? Grateful for travel and how it opens my eyes to new realities and possibilities. #ilovetravel #grateful #ilovemexico #thankfulforcontrast #mexico #heartopening #streetfood #tacos #carnitas #greenjuice #lotsofginger #violaclearfire #oreganooil #travelisthebesteducation
  • Flowers of Mexico...it’s heavenly to be in two of my favorite places in one month - Hawaii and Central Western Mexico. Both of these places are on the same latitude and have much of the same weather and flowers and plant life. Plumeria, hibiscus, ginger flowers and more similarities between these two distant lands than I would have ever noticed before. I think this latitude suits me. I went to Hawaii for a Life Coach Training and to Mexico for a life changing retreat. Look forward to being home for a while! #lovemylife #mykindoflatitude #mexico #sayulita #centralmexico #ocean #plumeria #flowersofmexico #healing #massage #innerjourneys #plantmedicine #rest #eat #retreat #doitagain
