Photo Diary: Spirit Weavers + California

“Spirit Weavers Gathering is a five-day celebration of cultures past, a remembering and practicing of basic human skills to ensure the survival of the body and the soul. Fermenting foods, weaving, dying fabrics, creating ceremony, sharing meals at night and dreams in the morning, drinking tea, and making plant medicines – singing songs, together as a community- these were the common knowledge ways and part of the simple pleasures of a life lived in balance and harmony with nature. Let us gather together as Women and share our skills in remembrance of the beauty path and an honoring of our Ancestors.” – via Spirit Weavers Gathering

Last month I traveled to California to attend Spirit Weavers and embarked on a journey that transformed me in ways I am still just beginning to understand. Five days at Camp Navarro, immersed in the Redwoods, disconnected by technology and reconnected with myself and my sisters. Seeing new and familiar faces, learning, teaching, sharing, all while surrounded by the great trees. Over 600 women from all around the world united together for ceremonies, workshops, song, reflection and community. Continue Reading

Conscious Commerce: MEUS Shop

Conscious commerce is a state of mind. It is shopping with purpose, for items that bring joy to your life and help you express your inner light. It is in support of small businesses, of creators, men and women who are dedicated to their craft. To use your dollar with passion, thought, awareness and intention. It is bringing an end to mindless purchasing and creating a wardrobe + home that supports the life you dream of.

Dreamer Essentials • May 2016

Despite the chill in the air here in NYC, I am still high-vibing off of the Spring energy and continuing to evaluate my wardrobe, beauty routine + home to make sure it is serving me to its fullest potential. This past weekend I rearranged my apartment and did a mini-closet clean out, taking inventory of what I have and where I need to fill in the gaps for the fast approaching summer season. The energy was cleared in a major way, and I immediately began feeling more inspired and at peace.

Every month I will be sharing my go-to essentials that leave me feeling creative, excited, comfortable and in-tune with my body and space. Lighter layers, nourishing snacks for picnics in the park, peaceful meditations + revitalizing scents are just a few of the items that are lighting me up for the month of May. Continue Reading

21 Day Transformation

21 Day Transformation + Healing Herb & Grain Salad

Expansive, mind-blowing change can happen when we are in an environment where we feel supported, heard and inspired. This was exactly my experience when I underwent the last 21 Day Transformation with Holistic Nutritionist, Kristin Dahl and Health Coach, Alexa Gray.

Through their work, I was able to open up, shift my relationship with food, meet new incredible souls and received the most amazing goodie bag in the mail full of beautiful holistic products that assisted me in using the tools I acquired even after the cleanse was over.

Research shows that it takes 21 days to form a habit. Well, I believe this is even more true when those days are filled with a tribe who is on the same path, experts who are there to answer any questions you have and endless inspiration to quickly alleviate anxiety and fears through the process.

This week’s Conscious Commerce feature is one of my absolute favorite brands, Elizabeth Suzann. Inspired by a dislike for excess and a desire for quality, Elizabeth and her team cut and sew all pieces in the Nashville-based studio using high-quality, natural fiber cloth that continues to get better with wear. Her passion for craftsmanship, functionality, detail and mindful consumption is felt in every collection. Each garment stunning in its simplicity and versatility. Continue Reading

Flynn & King Revive Oil-Based Cleanser

I was first introduced to Flynn & King at Indie Beauty Expo in NYC. I was initially drawn in by their gorgeous packaging but became an instant fan after sampling the products and meeting the creators, Corina and Summer.

Based out of Brooklyn, NY all products are all-natural, organic, multifunctional and completely gender-neutral. I have been using the Revive Oil-Based Cleanser with Argan and Rosehip Seed Oil for months now, and I am a true-believer (and completely obsessed)! It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and hydrated immediately after using it. I love it so much that I am about to place an order for another one this week before I run out. Continue Reading
