Ayahuasca – How She Changed My Life

Before I jump into my ceremonial experience with ayahuasca, I want to tell a bit about ayahuasca itself.  It is a vine that grows in the Amazon.  The indigenous people of South America have been using ayahuasca for centuries for healing, as a religious sacrament, and as a means of communicating with nature.  A shaman, [...]

Peru – Chapter 1

I have taken quite a break from technology since leaving Moab.  Preparing for my departure to Peru, experiencing the adventure of the trip, reintegrating since returning, moving up to Montana, and going on our annual trip to West Yellowstone has filled my time.  The weather is a bit chilly today, and it feels like the [...]

Why I Love Moab!

The extended time I got to spend in Moab was such a treat.  First, just see what I love about Moab…  Of all my travels so far, arriving in Moab was the first time I felt like I was arriving home.  It was a remarkable difference from my other stops.  I suppose it makes sense [...]

The land of goats, chickens, and Soul Sisters!

Looking back on my time in Durango, it made me realize how every decision we make changes our life trajectory.  I remember all of the synchronicities that led me to applying for the Yearlong Soulcraft Immersion.  The first gathering was in the Tetons at the Murie Center in October of 2009.  I was walking into [...]

Whirlwind tour of New Mexico

Since my last post, I have been traveling quite a bit.  I'm due in Salt Lake City by April 5th to catch a plane to Peru, so time to spend in New Mexico was somewhat limited.  Each day I traveled, I felt excitement being out on the open road.  The timing of each move felt [...]

The Hash Connection…

As part of this journey, I feel like I’m shopping for places I might want to settle in for a while.  I really liked my time in Quartzsite because it offered what I needed then.  I felt complete when I left and can’t see myself settling there.  Yuma is also a place I can’t see [...]

Phoenix 11/23/11 – 11/30/11

Had a great time in Phoenix visiting with Toni and her family.  Toni and I basically grew up together.  We've been friends and getting into trouble together since kindergarten.  It's been years since we've had the opportunity to truly be together for an extended period of time - probably since college.  I also got to visit with [...]

Prescott, AZ 11/17/11 – 11/23/11

Prescott was a great place to visit and would probably be a great place to live for someone who likes the outdoors and milder climates.  The terrain surrounding the campground is rolling forest with steeper mountains close by.  The rolling terrain is great for biking and hiking trails which there are many.  The Ponderosa Pine [...]

Day 1 in Prescott, AZ

My first full day in Prescott, first 5 minutes in the awesome coffee shop of Cuppers, and I have an afternoon appointment with the head of the Arizona Wilderness Coalition and a second contact with a professor of Ecology at Prescott College!  Seem a little odd?  I started talking to Bob, a self-proclaimed "geezer" who [...]
