This is one part of Dharamsala that I must share, meeting an awesome Nepalese tattooist and scoring a little giftie. I remember when I first saw the guy, he was sitting on the side of the steps in Bhagsu when I was walking up to see the group for dinner. He had laid out all … Continue reading Chats over Tatts
There was a great king who woke one morning with three questions on his mind. He called upon his minister and asked him, “What is the most important time? Who is the most important person? And what is the most important thing to do?” The minister had a long think and replied with, “The most … Continue reading Story of the Sage
I felt like I was starting to go through the feelings of homesickness, mostly because I don’t have a particular date on when I am going to come home. This open ended trip brings the sense of never returning. It brings the feelings of goodbye, but in a way where you don’t know when the … Continue reading Not Truly Homesick
I had started writing this on Christmas Day, but after moving to Auckland, working a festival, adventuring to Tauranga and getting a spontaneous new tattoo, the time and energy for writing had gone out of the window. Now I’m settled, in this huge place called The Big House with 20 other flatmates. For a house … Continue reading New Year Refreshers
I’m going into this post with an open mind because it’s been awhile and I am fully aware that all my words could end up jumbled as I put these thoughts down. I had a bit too much pride. I was proud that I was working a second job, I was proud that I had … Continue reading Caught in the Ego Trap.

It is the perfect opportunity to go within at this time of year and get some internal work done, but it isn’t always the thing at the top of your list when you have a lot of tasks to do. Even in the nurturing months of winter, we want to be moving, changing and adding … Continue reading Keeping Motivated
Everywhere I look it seems more common to find people who are finally starting to reconnect with themselves, and to create a life they truly desire rather than what they feel they “should” live. I was recently mulling over the idea that if I had known how to connect with myself at a younger age, … Continue reading Influencing Our Teens to Start Living
This subject has been on my mind for some time, and over the past year I have begun to really figure out how to put it into words. Growing up I used to have an infatuation with spirituality and hippie ideals. Flowers, love and a sense of freedom often came to mind, little did … Continue reading Are we the modern day Hippies?
When I first sit down on the cushion and align my body into a comfortable position, there is always a restlessness. Instantly, my mind remembers the million things on the to do list and suddenly I want to be anywhere but here. I shuffle, shift and struggle for comfort, but - eventually - I achieve … Continue reading Lovin’ some Love
