Costa Rica Has Banned Styrofoam — A Major Win for the Environment

This country is so progressive, so environmentally focused, so sane, and so in love with the Earth.

globalcitizen.org Fines for using styrofoam range from about $760 to $7,600.

[12/08/19]   This passage is written by my FB friend Michelle Joy. She eloquently addresses the environmental/existential crisis we face.

When man was first birthed from the womb of the Creator, he was cradeled in the arms of Mother Nature. He was raised in an enviroment where his bare feet touched the earth each day. He nourished his body with living raw plants and the occassional animal that sacrificed itself so that man could sustain. He drank from water that was purified by silt and living moss and full of minerals as it traveled through the rocks of the streams. He slept under the stars and woke with the sun. His job was to protect and feed his tribe. Man respected the earth and understood that he could never overpower the storms and the wind and the fires -- but he could learn to adapt to it and harness it. Medicine did not come in the form of a bottle. Medicine came in the form of a sweat lodge, of plants, of laying on of hands, of prayer. The health of the soul was just as important as the health of the body. And when man got old and took his last breath, his body was returned to the earth to be recycled into new life in the form of a tree or a flower or a shrub.

We are living in an age where man has removed himself from the arms of the Mother. He has lied to himself and said that he must live inside a climate controlled box pumped with artifical air, buzzing floresent lights, and plastic floors offgassing toxins. He has told himself that processed food overheated in toxic BPA lined cans so that the frequency of the nourishment has been boiled to nothing is considered a meal. He nurses water from plastic bottles with drops of flavored chemicals. We are no longer interested in daydreaming amongst the riverbanks. Instead we sit like zombies in front of blue light screens and absorb fictional stories riddled with sex and blood and gore and materialism. Instead of offering up prayers to the creator in the heavens, we idolize Hollywood stars. We wake each day and go to jobs that cause us to betray our souls yet we are slaves to the paycheck so we can keep up with our lifestyles living in our fancy boxes filled with plastic and electronics. We do not understand why we have migranes and diarehha and contstipation and heart palpitations and diabetes and high blood pressure, anxiety and fatigue and arthritis. We yearn for more and do not know why we are so lonely, unfullfilled, stressed, and depressed.

It is because we have removed ourselves from the arms of the Mother. We have allowed our egos to tell us that we know better than the Creator. We have placed a barrier between ourselves and the very environment that is supposed to sustain us. We wonder why we are sick. We wonder why we are always searching for more. It is because we do not even realize that we are lost. The answer is we must find our way back to our true home and until we do that, our soul will always be crying out for the womb from which it has been stripped.

Jean Shinoda Bolen Quote

I had the good fortune of attending her seminars in the 1990's, who soon became one of my role models - the living potential of what we can be and how we can live our life with purpose. Jean is a brilliant, heart-centered, passionate and a wisdom keeper. She is a True Leader and Empowered Woman.

A boy with autism broke down at an Orlando theme park. This employee saved the day

This is truly what it means to "Be present" to "Be there" with a person. So many of us don't realize the gift of presence. It is one of the greatest gifts to give another person. Learn how to be present with yourself and with another. Meditation has been the path I have taken to learn how to be present and just be. This employee was totally awesome!

Our Story

I have always loved traveling and it began at the age of 10. Every Sunday when my parents received the Sunday paper, I would grab the Travel Section, cut out travel agents promo ads, and send away for travel brochures. I excitedly waited for them to arrive, and when they did, I would make scrapbooks of my favorite destinations and DREAM BIG.

With a calling for adventure singing in my heart, 45 years later, I began a travel, wellness & adventure company. Each travel experience is especially designed to promote well-being in mind, body and spirit through adventure, experiential learning and mindful practices. I believe when we are surrounded by the pristine beauty of nature, we feel joy, peace and wonder and are inspired to create a more fulfilling life experience.

With expert knowledge in mindfulness, meditation and wellness, I help you learn and practice ways for building greater health and a state of well-being. All journeys are held at beautiful full service resorts and spas surrounding by natural beauty. There is always free time build in to indulge in spa services, fitness classes and “off campus” exploration. Past journeys have been held in Sedona, Arizona, St. George, Utah, Hot Springs, VA and Costa Rica.
