THIS is what it's all about. Thank you Words In The Bucket for so beautifully capturing the heart and soul of the The 109 World mission! Read the article below or see the original publishing here.   Before, philanthropy was something very wealthy individuals were engaging in. Now, everybody can do it. Once you empower each individual, there’s nothing more powerful.” This mission – to change the trajectory of global development through the collective power of individuals – is the heart of the 109 World initiative. The young San-Francisco-based non-profit was founded on 7 Passions – Education,...

  Here is an example of what life is like for people less fortunate than you and I. The people of Ecuador impacted by the major earthquake that took place this April are struggling for their lives. Most homes have completely disintegrated and families now live in make-shift houses created with tarp and pieces of metal. Many sleep in the dirt directly on the floor. Children are the ones who suffer the most - where do you turn to when you've lost everything? How do you start over when there is nothing left? Join 109...

Now I Can Receive in General, Love, Travel

Returning to regular life is challenging. I've had many epiphanies and one of them is - I actually never give myself credit for the things I create. Ever! I'm good at putting myself down. I often feel like I'm not enough. It's in my backbone that I need to give and give and I feel my mind trying to bring me back to a place of undeserving. So. Here is a reality check of badassery. For me. I have a platform for yoga and healing that is bursting at the seams with abundance. oneOeight is......

Souls of Society in General, Love, Travel

During Envision Festival I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Souls of Society, a community driven movement focused on cultivating communication and human connection. We discussed presence, staying grounded in the face of challenge, and taking yoga off the mat. Read on, or watch the full interview below. “What’s one of your favorite things about yourself?” “My ability to listen and be present with people.” “How’d you hone that ability?” “I think it’s the receiving and releasing of energy. I’ve been lucky to spend a lot of time with very spiritual people and I can take that energy...

We couldn't have had a better ending to the 109 World #109Water Nicaragua trip! Fire ceremonies, yoga, meditation... They have all been beautiful silver linings to our main purpose here in Nicaragua: digging trenches and shoveling dirt.     My entire body is buzzing with gratitude. WE ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE HERE PEOPLE! For real! Not just talking about it or dreaming about it or thinking about it but actually going out to the far corners of this planet and doing what we can to help people in need. We have the power to do this! You...

109 World in Nicaragua in General, Travel

Spent the afternoon digging in the scorching sun. Sat for fifteen minutes in the dirt with a small boy who spent all morning crying, dried tears streaking his dust-covered cheeks. Why, I don't know. My Spanish is good but he was young and the only word he knew was "perro". Dog. Yes. So many dogs. And pigs. And oxen. And chickens, everywhere. The people we are shuffling dirt and rock with for hours on end live in small shacks made up by tin and sticks and large sheets of plastic. They smile, all the time. We...

Costa Rica: Pure Magic in Love, Retreats, Travel

BannerCrop

Here is a little recap from our Costa Rica adventures… my home away from home!             I lead at least one retreat at Selva Armonia in Costa Rica every year, sometimes two. It’s one of my favorite places in the world. We practice yoga on our yoga deck in the jungle twice each day, swim in waterfalls, make bonfires on the beach, relax in the natural jacuzzi(!), eat all-organic food from the farm, and explore hidden beaches. It really is as magical as it sounds.     My good friend...

Envision Festival, I love you! in General, Travel

Envision Festival was a whirlwind of magical madness - as always. This year was by far the most organized and put together I’ve seen the festival. It was my fifth year going, so I’ve really been able to watch this gathering of artists, yogis, musicians and adventurers transform and transcend, getting better and better, year after year. This year, I left Dennis at home and brought Olivia for a girls trip. It was amazing!   We planned to take it easy on Thursday, but ended up staying up all night. I taught a big class...
