Who says giving up is a bad thing?

Pushkar Mistful Sunrise Meditation

In my life I have wandered the world in search of spirituality and truth. I delved into countless mystery schools in hopes of finding answers to the deeper questions that stirred within my heart. As I sit still in this moment, and reflect upon all that I have discovered… I once again come back to the seeming realization that I really know nothing. Truths that I once thought discovered are lies just the same. Every grain of sand I grasp falls through my clenched fists to be lost once again into the abyss.  Every concept, idea, belief, swirls into another mist of uncertainty.

I know not who I truly am, for it has been lost in the whirling winds of the great illusion.  I know not where I am going, yet I continue onward just the same.  My mind is filled with echoing Words of “you should be: …this …that …happy …spiritual …kind …loving …trusting …strong …loving …open …discerning …humble …present….

FSJ evolving, transforming, and expanding

It has been some time since last reaching out .  Just like how in each one of our lives, we sometimes need to take a break from the normal, retreat within, and make some adjustments… business also sometimes need to do the same.  FSJ have been taking a bit of time to dig a little deeper, discover some new dimensions of itself, and explore some new amazing places in which to share with you.

Our journeys took us from the ocean & jungles of Thailand, to Shamanic Plants & Incan ruins of Peru, to retreats & spiritual communities in Brazil, to silence & Yoga in the Himalayas of India, to medieval villages & rock climbing in Spain, and finally to retreat into our home in the mountains of Washington State.

Some awesome photos and  insights through our Spiritual Travel:

Slowing Down Thailand Island Style

Beautiful View from southern thailand island paradise

Namaste World Family….
I greet you this time from the beautiful Southern Thailand Paradise of Koh Yao Noi.  It is a mostly unexplored island located between Phuket and Krabi… and my current Winter home. The ocean landscape is painted with Limestone towers sprouting from all direction, pristine abundant nature, and hidden beach paradises.

southern thailand local experienceThrough our Yoga and Outdoor Adventure (especially rock climbing), we are currently co-creating a beautiful bubble of yoga, light, and goodness! People visit from all over the world and many new connections are being created.

There really isn’t so much to “do” here other than teach/practice yoga, rock climb, read, connect with beautiful people, enjoy the ocean…and just BE. This environment gives visitors a great opportunity to reflect, make some changes in their lives, and retreat into peace.

Pisac Return

Its 7 am and I depart from the Cusco, Peru Airport exhausted, and dazed, yet with an overwhelming joy of being back in this sacred land.  I receive an enchanted hug from German, and relax into the taxi for the 45 minute drive to the small town of Pisac.  The ride winds and turns through Eucalyptus forests and past the ancient Incan Ruins of Sacsayhuman and Tambomachay. The cloudless sky is a crystal blue and the sun shines on the sacred valley Apus (mountain spirits).  Continue reading
