Few weeks ago what a super adventure in North Bali with some new friends finding on the way. The Bali’s life -i am starting to be used to meet awesome people now.

From Canggu, i explored Munduk and his beautiful area, the lake – but spending time in the friendly mountain, sees villages, met great Balinese people, enters to different flowers plantation. The hospitality remains warm and genuine and very small selection of guesthouses and homestays here; this is old Bali at its best.

Hisham and I, then went to Lovina, we’ve been on a boat trip, hoping watching some dolphins… ahah the fisherman said to us, ‘i guarantee you to see them, if not i refund your money’. We could not see one, and the refund was not easy to manage.

Then, we went to Les waterfall and stay at Mickael’s house with the help of Wilan who is protecting the land with his family. The place is stunning : Bamboo house in the forest where i found deep connection with the land, the beauty of the place and especially the strong energy in the soil. TREEES…

Here is what inspired me from that – all this experience showed me how is it to compare yourself to others and fail with self-confidence and trusting with others.

In a forest where grows Bamboo next to Moringa trees, next to so many varieties of different plants, fruits and herbs. Who ever told you that Bamboo is more beautiful than the pineapple tree, or the Papaya more valuable than the bamboo. Do you think the Bamboo feel jealous of the oak because it is bigger and its leaves can change color ? The very idea of the two trees comparing themselves to each other seems ridiculous, but we humans seem to find this habit very hard to break. By watching Facebook or Instagram or all those nice people everywhere, there is always going to be somebody who is more beautiful, more talented, stronger, more intelligent or apparently regarding all social media, happier than you are. And conversely, there will always those who are less than you in all these ways. The way to find out who you are is not by comparing yourself with others, but by looking to see whether you are fulfilling your own potential in the best way you know how.

C O M P A R I S O N…

Brings inferiority, superiority. When you don’t compare, all inferiority all superiority, disappear. Then you are, you are simply there. It’s just enough.

A small bush or a big high tree it doesn’t matter – you are yourself. You are needed. A grass leaf is needed as much as the biggest star. Without the grass leaf God will be less than he is.

This sound of the bird is needed as much as a Buddha; the world will be less, less rich if this bird disappears.

Just look around. All is needed, and everything fits together. It is organic unity ; nobody is higher and nobody is lower, nobody superior, nobody inferior.

Everybody is incomparable unique.

It something that I saw even closer at Emas Hitam in Ubud, i did some volunteer work in their Permaculture and i watched the biodiversity of the all garden, how each individuals works together to maintain the balance. We need to take example more of this amazing design, trust more each others and help each others to to not forget we need everybody to be balanced.

So thank you all amazing people for the experience, the knowledge i received and things i can grow myself. I will keep helping as i can on the side because this is how this order has to be. Receiving, sharing, loving 🙂

Lives between Europe and exotic places, here is my story: I worked as a fashion Buyer for 10 years in Paris and get the chance to travel a lot during fashion weeks and experienced to live abroad. At 30 I changed my life and relocated in Hong Kong, where in parallel of my work I was studying Yoga and Ayurveda from short trips to Bali. Influenced by my teachers, peers, environment and my travels… I felt unstoppable and this year gap changed my life. First, I attended in Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep Monastery my first Vipassana course – the 21 days of silent meditation in 2013. I did an Ashtanga 200-YTT in India in 2013, I stayed under the guidance of certified Ashtanga teachers of KP Jois as Prem Carlisi, Damien de Bastier, BNS Iyengar till now. Completed an Ayurvedic course with Deepak Chopra, M.D., F.A.C.P in his foundation of Ayurveda and also with Dr Ramesh Kumar from the University of Ayurveda in Mysore – India. Completed a Dietary Course called ‘Food is your best medecine’ with the Dr. Veronica Waks M.D., N.D. which is about planning a food plan who works the best with different type of people. More recently in 2018, she stayed under the guidance of well known Ayurvedic author Janesh Vaidya in his center in Kerala to be trained as a Yoga Therapist and integrating Yoga-Ayurvedic program that she is able to teach now. « My experiences make me understand that the key component for health and wellness is traveling into a healing environment, as it is an extraordinary step into the process of self-discovering and how to transform our life with new habits and then sustain this lifestyle for our own health ».  That’s why I choose to use my yoga retreats to guide others for self-discovery and adopting a spiritual practice into their life “Sadhana” and all tools that has benefited me.
