I am a teacher, but what I harvest does not go beyond my farmland.

Long before the Spanish settlement, the ancient town of Uru Uru (pre-Hispanic name for Oruro) was a religious destination for the Aymara & Quecha people of the Andes.
Locals would worship Andean deities , praying for protection & giving thanks to pachamama mother earth .

The landscape is sublime yet,
Alimatizing to the 7000m alititude, meant nausea was the only memory I have of this place.
In hindsight, the vomiting, diarrhoea, shivers and fevers were a cleansing to say the least. It was during these intense moments of pain where I felt closely connected to what matters.
The mountains had something to teach me.
Edgar and Nathaniel, my two brothers who came with me on this journey, thank god they were there! They were my roots, my grounding.
Landscape photographers; I now understand your journey!
We create the ambience, the energy, the feeling, through our history , otherwise the landscape is what it is.

From the 82 years that I have the lived, the biggest highlight of my life was when I told my husband and family 11 years ago that I am a lesbian.
How did that make you feel ?

Different smells can induce different feelings and sensations within us, as well as journey us back to our memories and recollections.
During ceremonies, sacred rituals and holy places, you will always find a therapeutic smell released in the ambience. Whether it’s from essential oils, insense sticks or sage. It has a way of making us feel at home, at ease and relaxed. ‘’In a July 2013 study, women who smelled clary sage experienced reduced blood pressure and breathing rates; they were also able to relax during a stressful medical exam. Sage is also known to increase our memory and attention’’ This is sage, used during a Native-American Sun Dance ceremony In Brazil.
The beauty of ancestral rituals.

‘’The Journey Within’’ was a workshop hosted by Holistic and NLP coaches David & Paul D’ Ambrosio and Kundalini Yoga Teacher and Spirit Coach Nathalie Daccaach.
During this workshop guests were invited to experience breathing exercises which have been known for centuries to purify our blood and release deposits from the lungs, bring clarity and release natural energy throughout the body.
The coaching workshops were a mixture of what it means to be healthy not just from eating, but creating a balanced lifestyle that can then help overcome the many disempowering identity roles we sometimes play.
