Sacred Chill {West} : Opening Soon!

“Let it be easy” “Make space for your future” I’ve had the two notecards from the photos above stuck on my fridge for the last two months. It was the beginning of August when I decided to take some time off to “make space for my future”. I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for, […]

1000 Serious Moves

I came across this poem recently and I haven’t been able to get the refrain “1000 serious moves” out of my head. Such a beautiful reminder to let go and be with whatever is here. Allow. Allow. Allow.   TRIPPING OVER JOY What is the difference Between your experience of Existence And that of a […]
