Revive in Thailand

It is been 6 years since I came last time in Thailand. I was in Koh PP and Chiang Mai and I remembered that I felt in love with Chiang Mai because of the green but also with their conscious community, temples, monasteries and holy vibes (from my perception).

This time, I came to Koh Phanghan and instead of discovering another trash touristic island, I discovered one of the last paradise with turquoise water, cute little wooden houses on the beach and a large joyful conscious community doing amazing work to help increasing wellbeing on Earth. I feel very centered and connected with everything around me and I let it be.

After my stay in the hospital, I moved to the beach – before I was staying in a house deep in the jungle. Since I am at the beach, I realized that not only me was collecting the trash at the shore but all locals and even foreigners every morning. That’s why everywhere it is so clean. Thai people keep their places, tight, clean and well decorated. Most of the places are cute and well maintained.

As in Bali, they do have small temple in their house where they give offering to their spirits and that’s what amazed me the most in Bali the first time, to see that people was still connected to the higher realm of this reality and was maintaining the connection. Where people loose their dreams, their hopes and imagination – life can be hard and maybe perceived as unfair because they probably see things without the magnetic connection with higher worlds where we can be guided. Here, the veil is less thick than maybe in a hopeless place where people believe in terrific news and constant sadness. So the magic is almost tangible everywhere and synchronicity arises easily in this island.

I learned while here that I do not longer need to fear obstacles because it is a fast track to strengthening my skills. Every hard time I had was always an opportunity to increase my faith. Everything serves a purpose along my path, all I need is to keep faith and trust in the process and believe that every plot twist is just a detour to my destination. We all receive challenges, but according to where you are, it will be low or high intensity, according to what you can support 🙂

There is so much hopes and positive talks at the moment around me, not just here in Thailand but even when I was in Portugal. I see the future as an amazing opportunity for all of us, I never met so many people doing an enormous contribution to maintain balance while creating an ethical and fair economy model to inspire a new paradigm to arise.. to revive!

I can fill one medium plastic bag of trash daily and others around me do it also without having to ask them to do it 🙂

I visited an organic farm where a Thai couple are growing fruits and vegetables, making compost and selling their natural shampoo, body wash and laundry soap to keep the soil safe while we are using our sanitary products. I took body wash and the laundry soap, fruits and veggies, eggs, coconut oil, kombucha… Eating so clean and organic feel so right after me receiving days and days of antibiotics from the hospital through my blood, I feel so weak after the treatment so high nutritive food is my medicine. That’s my opportunity to practice all my Ayurveda knowledge.

Surprisingly, I am practicing QiQong with a Shaolin monk instead of more Yoga courses – and it was one of my dream from my wishes list to train with a Kung Fu master as I never had the opportunity to go to the school in China.

And of course, I love enjoying all the nice restaurants around the island, going to all ecstatic dance or beach party (they do have very good music here from Europe). And singing a lot with fellow guitarist friends at the beach 🙂

Here are some pics of my first month

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.
