Pura Vida

Pura Vida

"Pura Vida" - I keep hearing from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep. For those unfamiliar, this is Costa Rica’s “motto”. The equivalent to the Canadian “eh” or “sorry”. Just with a lot more life poured into it. Pura vida translates to Pure Life, or...

What Do You Create?

What Do You Create?

To create is to make someone feel...Inspired, nostalgic, sad, excited, turned on, reflective, alive, touched. To gift the other with an experience. It can be through art, words, music, play, but the most powerful of creations is our presence. How do people feel when...

This Too IS Okay

This Too IS Okay

I used to think Mental Health was something lazy people made up to excuse their poor thinking. I had never in my life experienced anxiety. Depression or anything like that. Yeah I was a super introverted and shy kid growing up, with a lot of self judgements and flaws,...

Healthy Love, Unconditional Love

"National boyfriend day"? - Bitch please! 💁🏻‍♂️ More like "National who-I-settled-for-because-Im-afraid-of-being-alone-and-doing-my-inner-work Day". Not hating, just calling it like it is. (And of course there are exceptions!) But I've found that most people join...

Allow Yourself to Slow Down

Allow Yourself to Slow Down

Sometimes life's challenges are as easily solved as the issues with our laptops. All we need to do is to unplug for some time. Reset. Disconnect from all of it and then start again. Sometimes it's taking a nap in the midst of a heavy week. Or going for a walk at the...

Embrace Self-Love

This is something that only my closest friends know. Everything in life comes full circle. Around this time last year I hit rock bottom. I was coming out of a relationship with a broken sense of self respect, boundaries and inner peace. I had always taken pride in...

How do YOU choose to live?

How do YOU choose to live?

Most self proclaimed "awakened" people I have met are full of shit. Spirituality has everything to do about how we choose to live, and not what we do. Why bother trying to open your chakras if you can't open the door for that old lady behind you? What's the point of a...

The Universe Will Always Provide

The Universe Will Always Provide

The road to getting what we want often looks a lot different than we expected. And this is a beautiful thing. Sometimes life's most memorable gifts are wrapped in apparent wrong turns, seemingly bad luck and failed attempts. Sometimes not getting what we want right...

What nature and my own mind taught me

What nature and my own mind taught me

What did I learn after fasting for 4 days and nights in the middle of the forest, without any company other than nature and my own mind?... I spent the last couple of weeks immersed in a "vision quest" led by a shaman in the south of France. A vision quest, is a rite...

On Relationships: #3 Love Is Not Enough

On Relationships: #3 Love Is Not Enough

I used to romanticize relationships. The more love and passion there was, the more it "Had to be it!". Several years and experiences later I realized that love is not enough. Love on its own is a fire. You can cook incredible meals with it. Melt and create tools....

On Relationships: #2 Empathy is a Two Way Street

On Relationships: #2 Empathy is a Two Way Street

This one took several months and a lot of pain to understand and fully integrate. Here's a bit of context: I used to be all about "I GO FIRST" with little to no empathy. Which meant I did all the things that felt right, without a second thought of the impact this...

My First Burning Man

My First Burning Man

This photo sums up my Burning Man experience While the depth of emotions, variety of experiences, ups, downs, challenges, blessings and both magical and scary moments, are too much to condense (for a later post). It comes down to this: Art. The art of meeting people...
