Sometimes all you need is a few words of comfort from a friend. I’m grateful for all the support I’ve received the past day from friends both close by and far away – whether it’s words of encouragement, sharing another perspective or simply reaching out and listening. Thank you 🙏

A neighbor’s house in the villages of rural Siem Reap where I’ve been living and working. My days are drastically different now than before, it’s been a huge adjustment and challenge to say the least.

Rural Siem Reap, February 2017.
.
Earlier this year when I first arrived in Phnom Penh, capital of Cambodia, I didn’t immediately love this country. I felt scared. I didn’t take any photos for nearly a week. It wasn’t until I learned about the history of the country and spent more time in quieter, rural places that I got to feel the heartbeat of the Khmer culture and come to appreciate the people and rust-colored dirt roads everywhere.

One last ocean sunset for awhile. I may not be physically in Bali anymore but it’s always with me, and within me. I’ll be back ✨ .
.
Today I return to Cambodia for a few months to begin a new adventure! I’m excited to soon be volunteering at the wonderful @hariharalaya yoga & meditation retreat center, where I went as a guest earlier this year. My experience there was profound on many levels, and I always knew I’d return - to both deepen my own spiritual practices but also give back to the community. If you happen to be in Cambodia soon, check out the retreat offerings and hope to see you there!
.
Thank you @arsie for capturing this lovely candid moment. Ocean sunset + Bali beach dog = content and grateful me ❤️

As with most human beings, I crave comfort and security, it creates a deep sense of safety that brings me calmness. What is it about uncertainty and having “things up in the air” that creates so much tension and suspense in our lives? Does it need to create this extra drama for us or is it a product of the extra story we create and attach to it in our minds? Sitting with the uncertainty, the not-knowing takes a level of trust in the self, and the universe that things will be okay, that no-harm is the true nature of all things. Without this trust, fear takes over and consumes that space - we become bound within ourselves. We can choose to stay within the confined realm of safety and stagnation, or venture into the unknown and tap into the endless opportunities for growth. 🦋

A magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck Bali this morning near the level 3 active volcano, Mount Agung. As inhabitants of this island, of this planet, we are constantly reminded of the powerful forces of nature that are beyond our control. It has a higher intelligence of its own to restore balance, and to distribute its energies as needed. It’s an exchange we’ve negotiated with mother nature when we came into this world, we’re merely borrowing from the planet to sustain our own physical bodies and life. We take so much from Her but how do we give back? ❤️🌏🌿🌞

I’ve never watched as many sunsets until living in Bali, and they still never cease to amaze me. Feeling so lucky to be here, to be able to see such beauty with my own two eyes, to be alive. 💗

Contentment. Gratitude. Complete awe. I felt the sudden urge this afternoon to just go for a drive on my scooter. I didn’t know where I was going and it didn’t matter – my curiosity and intuition will lead the way. Riding through the neighborhood streets, many Balinese locals had the day off because of Galungan, the kids were out doing their barong dance and playing traditional instruments, I pulled over to watch them for a bit. Then continued on with my journey. I rode into tiny sketchy roads through rice fields, went into many dead ends, into corners and got chased by barking dogs. I found a tucked away river and beautiful old sacred tree with a small sitting area and a dragonfly visited me. I then rode into the sunset, eventually arriving at the end of a road that opened out to the beach where I watched one of the most beautiful sunset skies unfurl in front of me. This moment right here. .

Fallen beauty 🦋 This physical body is not all that we have, there’s an eternal spirit deep within that lives on. .

“The deepest structures of the mind are evoked in this process of seeing clearly— the intuitive awakened mind, buddhi. This is a mind, an awareness, a consciousness, that can move anywhere, that is not separate from anything in the whole field of mind and matter, that is not restricted by fear, clinging, holding on. This is the mind that can acknowledge, experience, and bear all of life. This is the mind and body that can be fully in the dance and, at the same time, be fully in the calmly abiding center.” Yoga and the Quest for the True Self, Stephen Cope

Lately I've been asked this a lot: "Do you live here?" And each time I'm asked I don't quite know how to answer it. 🏝 Six months ago I arrived in Bali seeking temporary refuge from my ongoing travels - I was frustrated, tired, lost. Little did I know I would still be here now. It's what happens when you find your transformational space I guess - you continue to become a happier, healthier, better version of yourself while here, it just feels like home.
.
I grew less interested in seeing new countries / landmarks / sightseeing and more interested in discovering the fascinating inner landscape that's within myself. Turning the vision inward - something I'd completely neglected for years, or even decades.
.
Within the safe space I've felt here, I continue to bring more awareness into all the parts of me buried in the unconscious parts of my brain. The good, the bad, the ugly. It can get uncomfortable and painful as hell at times. But this is the work I needed to do to heal.
.
I learn to embrace all the parts of me - self love. Not in a way that's based on vanity or ego, but in self compassion, self care, self acceptance, self soothe. I continue to shed all the layers of armor and mental /emotional weight I've carried for decades from family upbringing, societal conditioning, expectations, competition, insecurities, etc
.
Within all of us is a beautiful, pure and radiant heart that's waiting to shine through, and shared with the world. Before we heal the world, we must first heal ourselves ❤️✨

"In practice, there will always be a movement back and forth between awareness and equanimity. When equanimity is weak there will be increasing fragmentation. When awareness is weak, we'll find ourselves constantly hijacked by our unconscious projects. As more abiding center is cultivated, it calls for and creates the container for more awareness. As awareness is honed, and more of the unconscious is revealed, it calls for a strong abiding center to hold it." —Stephen Cope, Yoga and the Quest for the True Self

The yoga tradition states that "Asana (physical postures) addresses our relationship to the past. Pranayama (conscious control of the breath) effects our relationship to the present. And meditation impacts our relationship to the future."
.
When we practice, all the asana and pranayama is preparation for meditation- the crown jewel of yoga, where we can really extract all the benefits from our practice to take into our life off the mat.
.
In the days post-training, I've been pondering this a lot - what my next steps are in this journey. The truth is I have no fucking idea. But I trust and know that if I keep up with my practice, the answer will come to me in time. I don't need to rush. I stay present, be still, and then just listen. 😌🕉✨

My heart hurts for what's happening in the United States right now. There's so much disconnect, the division continues when we need to come together more than ever.
Let's stop pointing fingers and see more commonalities than differences. Be open and give yourself the opportunity to see the light in others before immediately putting a label on them. Less competition and more connection. Create connection, even when it's hard, especially when it's hard. Bridge those gaps in your communities so no one is left out and feels unheard. Love love love ❤️ My thoughts to everyone hurting and affected by the Las Vegas shooting last night 🙏🕯🌷 #lovelovelove #peace #namaste
