30 Days of Reiki

It always surprises me how quickly time goes by. Over a year has passed since I started practicing Reiki in Thailand. If you haven’t heard of this practice, Reiki is a Japanese therapy practice that works with the energetic fields of the body to stimulate deep relaxation and healing.

Exploring Colombia

The two months I spent in Colombia were arguably my most adventurous months throughout this Remote Year experience. I took on the challenge of hiking, spelunking, horseback riding, paragliding, repelling and finished it off with an ayahuasca ceremony.   The nature in Colombia is breathtaking. It’s one of the most biodiverse countries in the world. The country has a wide …

Ayahuasca Family

ayahuasca retreat

Trying Ayahuasca was something I’ve wanted to do ever since I became more serious about my spiritual growth. While in Colombia, I participated in a talk about this ancient medicine that was lead by two women that were organizing a monthly overnight ayahuasca retreat. I immediately jumped at their offer to join in on the ceremony. In the days leading …

Ancient Pyramids and the Spring Equinox

Teotihuacan Pyramids

Mexico was probably the most underrated destination that I’ve been to so far on my travels. I’ve heard enough stereotypes about Mexicans, and all I’ve heard about the country is how dangerous it is. Well after spending a month there I have nothing but love for Mexico.


For years, people have placed much of their focus on developing and enhancing intelligence through logical cognitive thought. Being rational has become the norm for most if not all societal structures, and it has come to be synonymous with sensible, healthy and acceptable.

First stop in Europe, Croatia

The first 3 months in Asia have ended, and I’ll be in Europe for another 3 months. This is my first time in Europe, and I don’t think we could have chosen a better starting location. From the magnificent sunsets and tranquil coastal waters to the historic buildings and magestic landscape, Croatia is an incredibly beautiful country with equally beautiful …

Know Thyself

Most people who have heard the phrase “know thyself” hardly pause to give much contemplation to its meaning. The path to grasping the depth of this statement is unending and can take a person on multidimensional journeys of self-awareness and exploration, but where does one begin?

Sak Yant Tattoo in Cambodia

For many years of my life I always firmly believed that I would never get a tattoo. That mentality wasn’t because I hated tattoos or had any negative beliefs towards them, I simply never thought I’d come across any options that had enough meaning for me to permanently mark my body.

Learning Reiki

The greatest experience I had in Thailand was definitely my time spent becoming a certified Reiki Practitioner. I made the decision to take the Level 1 and Level 2 courses at Orion Healing Center after having an incredibly healing and energetically activating Reiki session from my new friend Nancy at the Center. For the few short days of my Reiki …

The Vortex of Koh Phangan

I have spent a little over the last month completely lost in the magic of a small island off the coast of Thailand called Koh Phangan. The rest of the known world completely faded away as I was immersed in all manners of healing and rejuvenation practices. From sleeping the days away in every hammock I could find to deepening …

Seeking Spirit

I am not a guru or any other relative term you can think of that exist within the spiritual community. Well, at least not yet. I’m just another person here on Earth that is actively seeking higher understanding and a sense of knowing as I move through life.
