In the beginning of 2017, my man and I decided that every Sunday would be tech-free. It went great and felt amazing for a couple of months, and slowly it faded away for various reasons: two business owners being tech-free for a full day each week proved some challenges with communicating with our teams and our sometimes unruly schedules. Some habits … Read More

Many shamanic cultures believe that reality exists as a result of the Big Dream of the Cosmos. The Cosmos have dreamt you and I into existence.

It’s easy to take it for granted because it flows so easily through our faucets. So much water is wasted in our society… Building a relationship with the four elements invites a lot of gratitude. I often thank the water while I’m showering. When I fill my water bottle at … Read More
