Kundalini Rising

Sarah Somewhere Kundalini meditation

It all started in a yoga studio in San Francisco where I attended a Kundalini yoga and recovery workshop with Tommy Rosen, a teacher whose work I admire so much. That first class made me cry. Sob, actually. It was a physical reaction to a breathing exercise designed to cleanse and detoxify the body and mind. In that moment, I released a long-held sadness I wasn’t even fully conscious of. But actually, it started before that. I began practicing Kundalini … Keep reading…

Journey to Shine: reflections from my first e-retreat

Journey to Shine e-retreat

From January to March this year, I hosted my first online retreat, ‘Journey to Shine.’ Fourteen women from four countries shared a journey of connection and transformation via the wonders of technology (namely Facebook, email, Youtube and Skype). As you know, it was the first event of this kind I had hosted and therefore it was uncharted territory for me. While I had written most of the content in advance, I had no idea how it would resonate with people … Keep reading…

This Day Will Never Come Again

Sand art Puerto Morelos

We were having lunch in Puerto Morelos, a small town between Playa del Carmen and Cancun. It was about our third day back in the Yucatan, and we were filled with excitement about being on the Caribbean coast again.   After spending the morning exploring the beaches south of the town, we went to our favorite seafood restaurant, ‘La Pepita’ and were treated to such a delicious meal accompanied by friendly service that we could barely contain our joy.   … Keep reading…

At home in Playa del Carmen

Quinta margarita rooftop

A couple of months ago, this photo appeared in my Facebook news feed and I felt a pang of homesickness. It was posted on the facebook page of Quinta Margarita, the place we called home for fifteen months of our lives. When we decided to go back to Playa, we did look around for another place to stay in the interest of trying somewhere new. But we couldn’t find anything that lived up to Quinta Margarita and we simply had … Keep reading…

The Road to Queretaro

Queretaro well

Land borders fascinate me. No matter how many I cross, I am always amazed by their peculiarity. I mean, a land mass is divided into ‘ours’ and ‘theirs’ and suddenly an entire way of life comes to a halt at a man-made line. Hard to wrap your head around, really. Especially at 6AM in the morning. Especially after six months in the US where Mexico seemed to be a distant (recurring) dream. These days I make the effort to be … Keep reading…

We’re Going Home

Home

I should be cleaning the house we are looking after right now. I should be packing. We drive to Denver to pick up the owners of the house tomorrow. Thursday, we begin the journey we have been craving for a while; the drive back ‘home’ to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. I’ve spent almost seven years living in places other than my home city of Perth, Western Australia. I have certainly missed my friends and family (which is when I usually … Keep reading…

Are you a Healer?

Sarah Journey to Shine

I saw this on Caroline Myss’ Facebook page the other day: I thought, yes, yes I would! And I did! And it worked! It got me thinking about the all the decisions I have made over the last few years, and how at the time I didn’t know it was healing I was seeking, when actually that is EXACTLY what I have received. This literal journey over the least three years has been amazing. The things we have seen, done … Keep reading…

Sacred Objects: A Loverope Giveaway

Loverope-journey

Since shedding all my possessions in search of truth and freedom, I’ve experienced an interesting shift in my relationship to ‘stuff.’ I have, in fact, gathered more possessions since I left for Cambodia three years ago with a 20L backpack. The difference is that these things now serve one of the above purposes, either ‘truth’ or ‘freedom’. We bought a car in Mexico, which easily falls into the ‘freedom’ category and was one of the best decisions we made on … Keep reading…
