How do you create sacred space? 

State of Mind, finding that zone...

 

What does your creative process look like and what environments support this process?

Sense of smell with touch. Vision in color. Inspired by home settings, memories, classics, music and road trips. 

Sometimes...as simple as listening to surroundings.

 

Rock and art shows. Satsang. Devotional singing. Between metropolis, desert and water. Other countries.

 

How do you care for yourself and what are your favorite self-care rituals? 

Eat well, practice, and allow time out during the day. 

 

Baths with salt + herbal soaks, gentle body scrubs and oil massage

 

A Secret beauty tip you'd like to share ?  

I’ve been using Dr. Bronners ( mostly tea tree blend ) since the 80s, I’m also big on activated charcoal cleansing bars. If there is cacao in the mix anywhere for the body then I say YES. 

Ayurvedic sandalwood powder mixed with pure rose water to create a natural face and neck mask. The topper is always OILING.  All amazing for skin conditioning.

Is there a life lesson you’d like to share?

I will always be a student for life.  Time is precious, so being more gentle with self keeps me calm in doing. I believe that kindness, direct communication and honesty make great partnerships and long-lasting connections. 

I’m full when I allow energy to flow naturally, in return I yearn to learn more.
