Twenty years ago, I found meditation. What I have found is: the more I meditate, the calmer and happier my life becomes. And when I am too busy or distracted to sit down and meditate, things start to go awry. What I love most about meditation is how change starts happening the second you press play.
Meditation is my one non-negotiable ritual. I believe that by shifting your focus away from the thinking mind and more into the heart, you can feel what your soul truly wants. This is how you become fluent in your intuition. Once you know what your soul wants, then you can create it.
The meditations I share come from my learnings from Tibetan Buddhism, Vipassana Meditation, Bali Usada Healing Meditations and Integrated Restoration (yoga nidra). When you meditate with me, you will discover how to integrate ritual meditations to create big life change.
Sit with me and connect to your sacred self.
The dream is the soul’s guide, taking you home. This video made by my dear friend Conni Biesalski captures where I come from, where I am now and a little about where I am going. Conni fully captures the essence of Santosha Society, my personal passion project. The essence of my heart and soul are here, in this video and a beautiful gift from a friend. Take a look.
When I was 20 years old, with a trunk full of belongings I drove north nonstop for 7 days. I fell in love with Alaska the moment my feet rolled to a stop. Living off-the-grid, hauling water, chopping firewood, and gathering my own food bootcamped me into a more mindful way of living. The 12 years I spent there taught me a lot about slowing down and taking deeper, slower breaths.
For the past 15 years, I have traveled extensively, always with a wide-eyed curiosity to know how the world sees spirituality. My spiritual curiosity led me from Mexico to Tibet to Japan. While traveling, I found my spiritual teachers and soul guides.
I started Santosha Society because I yeared for a community to share all things soulful and surfy. In the first few years of “business,” we (myself and friends) hosted over twenty soul-nurturing trips around the world to the most inspiring of humans.
Nowadays, I am focused on helping others heal the nervous system – the anxiety, stress and overwhelm- so you can see clearly what your intuition is saying to you.
Let’s be honest, many of us are experiencing the effects of post-traumatic stress and long-term general anxiety in our lives more than ever. As a general diagnosis of society, I believe most of us (myself included) need a thick calming meditation balm to heal our overworked nervous system. The meditations I am creating are curated to do just this – relax and heal you- from the inside out.
Sometimes we all need gentle, compassionate, guidance to shift your perspective in a more peaceful direction. I hope my meditations do this for you, this is their greatest intention.
Thank you for being here.
