Hola Amigos,

Wishing you the Happiest and Healthiest of Holidays! Wherever you are celebrating, may these days offer you some peace, rest, family time or whatever else you are looking to do with this time of the year.

Sunset at Zunya - Mal Pais, Costa Rica

I love to take some time the last week of the year to look back and see what appeared for me this year - what I accomplished, what major lessons I learned, my ideas and aha moments, and what synchronicities and magic showed up at my doorstep. Having an active dialogue with your external world, with your life, is a rather powerful process and as we actively create our futures, we can begin to see the grand patterns and messages showing up, when we tune our radio dials. We can drop into immense gratitude for the here and now, for the lives we are living. Being alive, living in awe, in love, finding our edges, falling, growing, evolving - there's so much here that can pass by in the blink of an eye. I always ask myself, "Am I living life fully? Am I feeling fully expressed?"

Integrative Journaling Workshop @ ZUNYA - Map Pais, Costa Rica

And never ever ever be afraid of taking a pivot, or as my friend Nadav calls it, a passion pivot! Its a beautiful dance, this life, and always love seeing how else we can make our lives and those around us, that much better, to ease suffering in the world, and maximize positive impacts on the lives of those around us and the planet itself. Building villages, schools, healing centers, farms, and the connections between people so they feel less alone, less isolated, and more inter-dependent. Its an exciting time for humanity to take a leap and evolve and so excited to be here supporting that.

Epic Sunset Moments

This newsletter will have some amazing recaps from my time at Zunya in Mal Pais, Costa Rica. It was an epic stay with my dear friend Marcelo Mansour who I've studied Tai Chi and Vibrational Healing with for over 10 years! We both got to share workshops and daily classes as well as be students of life, and dove right into the Zunya program and experience. This project is near and dear to me as its one that I've advised and supported closely over the years, and is really doing it. From the regenerative study and program to the incredible education and programming geared toward human evolution. Diego Dosal and the team at Zunya have put their heart into this project and it shows!

Here's What I Want to Share This Week:

1. My time at Zunya (LINK)

Deep Private Coaching Work via the LTP Land Accelerator: I’ve opened up a few 1-on-1 consulting spots, and I'm doing calls with people to explore this possibility of working together and building something in Costa Rica, so if you need support - reach out.

The transformations I’ve seen in this coaching and consulting work -- bringing land projects to life are breath-taking and really light me up! The 20 or so projects/dreams we've supported this year alone have been such a blessed process.
