I knew there was a different way to live. In my early 20s, I backpacked through Asia for a year and glimpsed a life of joy, discovery, and freedom from
My first volunteer project was called Journey to Freedom. The goal was to rescue elephants from tourist camps and return them to the jungle. Weeks before I left, a baby elephant had just
The invitation for a four-month Chinese language course arrived in the middle of January. I had to wait until March to depart, and that winter was probably the longest in my whole life.
My sense of freedom evaporated on the second day as we pulled into a gas station in the heart of Amish country. I stared as a bespectacled and suspendered Amish gentleman walked into the convenience store and bought a Mountain Dew.
We've seen this story play out over and over again in books and movies, but when it comes to our own lives, we seem to think it's our successes that define us and make us an inspiration to others.
You’d rather travel. Work for yourself. Be creative. Find a unique way to serve the world from the ease of your laptop while sitting on a beach in Koh Phangan or overlooking the rice fields in Bali.
Brothers Jude Massey and Greg Bailey are at sea—literally. They're in the midst of an incredible physical and mental challenge—a challenge for a beautiful cause.
"She is pretty," I agreed as my daughter and I watched Lindsey Vonn being interviewed before what might be her last shot at the Winter Olympic Games.

She said the easiest way to do it is to speak in a soft voice reverently, thank them for their life, place them on the chopping block, and cut their throats. The chickens then need to hang
This full moon is a time for manifesting, so it is essential that we are clear about what we want to bring into our lives over the next six months---and most importantly that whatever we ask for aligns with our heart and soul’s needs and desires. Show More Summary
When I told people that I was travelling solo, the majority responded with sentiments along the lines of, “Oh, I could never do that!” I imagine these responses were mostly driven by the fear of simply being alone. And don’t get me wrong, I certainly was afraid that
Growing up, I loved the tales of King Arthur---the knights of the round table, Merlin, Excalibur and Camelot. In short, the stuff of legends. A legend that...
And so, she unclenched her belly and loosened her fists. She arched her back and raised her face to the sun, Opening and yielding into her deep, resourceful feminine nature.
Our culture romanticizes the notion of following our hearts. Books like Eat Pray Love and TV shows like "Master of None" encourage us to take leaps of faith, quit our jobs, leave our
Since then, I haven’t stopped traveling alone. I’ve filled my passport with visas and stamps from the jungles of Colombia, to the castles of Slovenia, to the mystical temples of Cambodia. I've experienced the shamans of Peru, the geysers of Iceland, and the national parks of the United States.
We are never as alone as we think we are in our struggles, and it is when we are at our most vulnerable that we can learn the greatest lessons.
January’s full moon is incredibly special, as not only is it the first (and closest to planet Earth) full moon of the year, but it is also the first of two supermoons in January, as January 31st will gift another supermoon to the sk...
