A mother and former model, she has been practicing for more than ten years, continuously exploring her innermost being. Founder of Wild Sisters United, a gathering of women who come together for three days in the woods in an alternation of traditions, knowledge, disciplines and rituals to get back in touch with the spirit of the wild woman and awaken the Goddess that lives in each one of us.
Breakfast gives me the physical and energetic boost to get my day off to a good start, it has always been my favourite meal. One of my favourite breakfasts is what I call super creamy porridge. My great grandmother was British, maybe that's also why I have such a sweet tooth for it! It is oatmeal that I cook for a few minutes in almond milk, to which I then add different toppings every day such as seasonal fruit, nut butter, two 100% chocolate cubes and some seeds, spices or powder.
I clean my tongue with a tongue cleaner which is an Ayurvedic practice I learnt many years ago in India and which I can no longer do without. It serves to remove toxins and bacteria that settle overnight. Then I brush my teeth and take a short shower of cold water, massaging my body with almond oil. I continue with my personal sadhana which includes a few warm-up exercises and one or more Kundalini meditations depending on the amount of time I have available. Finally, still in contemplation of the silence, I drink a cup of tea.
As obvious as it may sound, it is only when we bring awareness to the act of inhaling and exhaling that we can anchor ourselves in the here and now.
My life is studded with rituals. Repetition, like mantras, brings serenity to the mind. I try to stay in the flow by following the cyclical nature and the moon. I use a lot of incense and herbs, essential oils, descend into the depths of listening through cocoa and tea ceremonies and take moments to write down in my journal emotional or super consciousness states that emerge.
There are many ways to feel fulfilled. For me, success is feeling complete, being able to find your place in the world in the integrity of your inner calling.
I would talk about mindfulness and how, by reflecting on the intrinsic meaning of this word, we can shape our lives through a holistic approach that allows us to give equal value to body, mind and soul.
Human beings are accustomed to putting a label on everything, person or circumstance, often leaving judgement superficial. I want to answer this question with another question: who determines what normality is?
Empathy. Being able to read people's hearts bypassing minds and words.
A woman of medicine, to talk about how wisdom and ancient knowledge can reconnect us with our true essence; Bruce Lipton, American cell biologist, to delve into his revolutionary research; Marina Abramović, to listen to her recount all the sensations she felt during her performances.
As much as comfort is certainly more accommodating, I find myself always choosing courage. I have travelled so much in the world, but even more within myself and it is only when I can step out of my comfort zone that I see my progress on the path of evolutionary and spiritual growth.
