She’s also seen beautiful places covered in trash, coral reefs destroyed, and glaciers receding due to increased temperature. Being strongly moved by this, she has dedicated herself to learning more about her own impact on...

Two Weeks in Kerala, India India / Travel

With the dozens of countries we’ve visited over the past decade, we kept putting off traveling to India with our kids mostly because we heard it can be a bit intense, and a place where it’s easy to get sick. We’ve always wanted to go, but with young children regularly putting fingers in their mouths, we thought it would be best to wait until they...

How Fulfilling Are Your Relationships? Family / Friends / Goals / Personal / Spirituality / Travel

How connected do you feel to your partner or your kids? To extended family and friends? To a community? And how fulfilling are those connections for all involved? In our modern culture, we’re often taught the value of becoming self-reliant and independent. Sometimes as we “succeed” in this, it leads to a sense of isolation. Or we may shut ourselves off from deeper emotions in order to...

Shopping Spree – What Gear Am I Replacing From What Was Stolen? Travel

Due to last week’s theft, where I lost nearly everything, I have a lot of shopping to do. However, being in Europe, it doesn’t make sense to buy most items here, as the majority of products I need either aren’t readily available, or are much more expensive than buying through Amazon in the U.S. So I’ve been filling up my digital shopping cart and getting...

Exploring Transylvania Romania / Travel

Transylvania took us completely by surprise. It is nothing like we expected. Not that we really thought we’d see vampires, bats, and monsters in castles (and we haven’t), but we didn’t realize how culturally rich, historically preserved, naturally lush, and energetically grounded this place is. We came here mostly to run through the program for our At Home in the World Retreat, which we will...
