How to minimise jet lag with Ayurveda
When darkness comes
The major negative effect of traveling? Jet lag. Our bodies were not designed to travel such long distances in such short times. The good news is the following tips will greatly minimize if not eliminate jet lag all together.
A Beautiful Mind
When darkness comes, embrace it with open arms. When the shadow is revealed, bring it into your light. The pain in our hearts is the feeling of realisation. That possibly we’re not as free as we once thought.

Knowledge is Power!

Varanasi - Shiva's City
Here’s an interview I did about meditation and India with Julia Ashwood from The Vista… a unique travel guide for the modern nomad. The Vista is a beautifully styled showcase of inspirational people, unique destinations, carefully curated travel guides.
