Have you ever had a time in your life where you just felt stuck, or worse yet regressed. Have you felt stagnant in a dead end job? In a passionless relationship? Have you been disappointed that after all the time, money, and effort you put into school/work it still hasn't gotten you to where you expected to be in life.
Yes, if you're human than most likely have experienced something similar. I needed a shift in my life something to jolt me forward when I stumbled upon the opportunity to take part in an apprenticeship with an herbalist specializing in herbal medicine.
Today I found myself waking up to the pouring rain and birds singing in the jungle behind my cabana. For two weeks so far I've been immersed in nature and have learned so much about the local culture, as well as trusting the flow of life, letting go of things that don't serve me and receiving inner healing. There is a long way to go but I have been forced to slow down and listen, contemplate and learn from introspection.
As of now I have more questions than answers, but I see a path and light in front of me. As the weeks progress I will continue to surrender to the journey.
Today I am overwhelmed with graditude for the life of privilege that was given to me. People here in the small town of Livingston sacrifice so much just to survive and provide the bare essentials for their families. Despite their hardships people here are kind, inviting and generous. They are curious and sincerely interested in what you have to say.
With little access to the internet I will do my best to keep you updated. Until then Pura Vida😘😘
