A Dream Come True… I Hosted My Very First International Travel Retreat in Bali, Indonesia!

 

Earlier this year, in partnership with a dear friend and spiritual sister of mine who shares the same love for sacred travel, exploration, healing, nature, sisterhood and holistic teachings, I launched Holistic Goddess Retreats. Holistic Goddess Retreats is a sacred travel experience company that provides unique opportunities for women (and sometimes men) to vacation in a meaningful way, to some of the most sacred destinations on Earth.  Our very first international retreat took place in one of my favorite places, Bali Indonesia, this past October.  Along with 11 other women from all over the states, I embarked on a journey

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

What Does “Holistic Health” Mean, Anyway?!

“Find joy in taking care of yourself… Mind, Body, and Spirit.”

In a recent interview by Chelsea Cooper of Lean Body Fit Camp here in Long Beach, CA, I was asked about the basics of holistic living and weight loss.  More and more individuals are becoming aware of the mind-body-spirit connection (yay!) with all of our interconnected parts, and are now seeking products and activities to participate in that make them feel good all over – Chelsea’s clients are no exception, and have been interested in learning more about what they can do to naturally achieve greater health.

Honoring the Energy of Summer

Honoring the Energy of Summer

“Summer summer summertime… Time to sit back and unwind… Here it is the groove slightly transformed… Just a bit of a break from the norm…”

It’s almost time!  The season of Summer has always been my favorite.  It’s when I feel most alive, free, and in tune with… EVERYTHING!  The warmth of the sun, beach visits, the smell of sunscreen and coconut flavored body oils, flip flops, minimal clothing, late nights, adventures with my daughters, vacations, no alarm clocks…ahhh, I could go on and on!  Spiritually, there are rhythms of activities connected to the upcoming season change as well.

Your Daily Spiritual Nourishment

Your Daily Spiritual Nourishment

“It’s not what we do once in awhile that shapes our lives. It’s what we do consistently.”

Taking time to nourish your spirit is just as important as anything else on your daily calendar.  Not only is this something that I tell every single client I’ve ever worked with, it’s also a personal mantra that I live by, daily.  Every single day, I am devoted to a practice of personal and spiritual development.  Depending on my schedule and how the day flows, it could be a 10 minute guided meditation just before bedtime, an hour long nature walk, or a variety of other rituals that resonate with me.  Whether it’s 10 minutes, or an hour, consistency is far more important than

Sacred Travel

“The mountains are calling and I must go.”

Do you believe that certain places around the globe are innately spiritual and have the power to heal?  Or that we gravitate to the magnetism of certain travel destinations, for deeper spiritual or energetic awakenings?  Believe it or not, these spiritually magnetic places, also known as Earth’s energy vortexes, are energetically charged areas around the globe, that have been known and mapped as sacred spaces for millennia.  From Sedona, Arizona to Machu Picchu, Peru, many of these well known energy vortexes have been classified as the Earth’s chakra points, and have

My Crystal Obsession

“Like water or diamonds or crystals, it’s pure and reflects the light.”

Since ancient times, crystals have been prized for their beauty, energetic properties, healing benefits, and precise rate of vibration – so much so, that they are utilized extensively in everyday items, from clocks, to computers, to cell phones.  Crystals are alive like everything else in the universe, and vibrate at different levels depending on their composition and color.
