Oh, do I have a deep love for Colorado, it’s one of my favorite places to journey year-round! When my soul sister, Dusti invited me to join her on a weekend trip to Colorado; without hesitation, I eagerly said yes! One of our favorite bands, Nahko & Medicine for the People were playing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. Though I have never been to the Red Rocks, there is a bespoken buzz about this outdoor venue; which is carved out of the red rocks & exposed to the moon lit, starry sky! Dusti took care of getting our concert tickets and it was up to me to find a place for us to stay. I came across this eclectic and charming Inn called Highland Haven, complete with a whimsical treehouse! I’m excited to share about our little playful adventure that offered big heart expansion.
I am so excited to share one of my favorite mystical places to journey… Tulum, Mexico! I first experienced Tulum 3 years ago on a yoga retreat with my husband Ben, not only did we fall in love with the land and the Mayan culture, energetically we shifted and evolved. I recently went back to Tulum in February with my soul sister for some restorative vacation time. We stayed at the beautiful BE Tulum, a boutique hotel that has been on my dream list to experience. We arrived in the evening to check in and were enveloped with the calming and cleansing smoke of Copal, walking up the sand pathway with candle light glistening in the trees and the crisp smell of the ocean air. Yes, we had arrived in paradise.
Music…what does it invoke in you? What feelings & emotions awaken when listening, singing or playing a musical instrument? For me, music takes me inward to a place where my heart and soul reside. Music ignites joy, laughter, and a sense of playful freedom. Music also has been scientifically proven to assist in the healing of the mind & body through various musical modalities.
This blog post is on my recent journey to the opening of Sophie’s Place at Cardon Children’s Medical Center in Mesa, AZ. Sophie’s Places are dedicated music therapy facilities built within children’s hospitals assisting in caring for young people suffering from pain, chronic illness, and serious injury.
With December’s cold weather brewing and the New Year upon us, I’d like to share a warm summer journey intended to inspire travels for 2017. Back in late July, a fellow soul sister, Dusti, and I journeyed to Bainbridge Island, WA for a weekend Heart Awaking workshop created by Elisa Romeo. Having never been to Bainbridge before I was excited to start the search for place to stay during our soul connective retreat. After spending a day navigating the web I found a charming historic farm called Heyday.
Beautiful…what does this word mean to you? In our society, beauty is seen thru external perfected imagery. From airbrushed models in magazines, to perfectly casted commercials and flawlessly edited social media posts. It’s no wonder how beauty has become defined by outward appearance. My question is this, “How do we take off our tainted lenses of preconceived external acceptance and see the true beauty illuminating within each of us?” Continue Reading…
What are your thoughts on camping? How about gathering around a crackling fire, connecting with friends/loved ones thru good conversation under the starlit sky…sounds of the flowing river soothing your soul? Imagine adding a little juxtaposition to your camping adventure with luxurious comforts that feature a big canvas tent with a private wooden deck overlooking the Black Foot River. Inside your large tent awaits a plush king bed, cozy sitting area and a full private bathroom with heated floors, spacious shower and two sinks. Electricity to offer light and connectivity with your mobile devices (if you choose) seals the deal. Then falling asleep listening to Mother Nature’s lullabies and awaken to the sun illuminating your tent with a soft glow and warmth. No need to grocery shop and load up a cooler, in this juxtaposed camping journey your meals are prepared by your private camp chef using organic and locally sourced produce. How does all this sound? Too good to be true? This experience does exist and has a name, it’s called…Glamping! The first luxury ranch resort to actually create and offer this rustic yet luxurious glamping experience is called The Resort at Paws UP… The Last Best Place.
“Awe-inspiring” and picturesque photos of Glacier National Park have been flowing thru my Instagram feed this year. One mesmerizing photo after another have been coming thru, month after month… I knew my soul journey to Montana needed to happen soon. Though my husband and I had never been to Montana before, we could hear Montana beckoning us. We’re both small business owners in the Phoenix valley, during the summer months each of us experience a decline in business, especially with my company. We’ve turned this “down time” into our opportunity to travel and get out of the AZ heat. While doing my research on places to explore and stay in Montana, I found an amazing place called Paws Up where you can experience “glamping”, basically lux camping … more on this gem coming up in my next blog post.
I wanted to share one of my all-time favorite luxury boutique hotels – L’Auberge de Sedona. I’ve had the pleasure to stay at L’Auberge resort 3 times with my husband…it’s a luxurious investment for my mind, body and soul.
My journey to the sacred land of Peru ignited a deeper passion for travel and self expansion for me. I experienced a spiritual awakening as I met the loving, kind souls native to Peru; hiking the land, visiting the ruins and learning about the ancient mythology of the Incas. Pachamama (Earth/Mother- is the goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes) holds a healing energy that I hope all who are being called can journey to & embrace.
I just came back from a beautiful “soul connective” girl’s vacation in Bundville, Vermont. I have a sacred soul sister group, every year we plan a girl’s getaway to keep our connection strong, and our bond tight. This year we chose the Green Mountain State, Vermont. So why Vermont? Well, there was certainly something that led us there. A yoga festival called Wanderlust, the weekend of June 18th and we all just happened to be free for some vacation time. With Wanderlust calling us and our open availability… all energies aligned just right to find our “True North” Wanderlust journey.
