The Top Trends of 2018

The Top Trends of 2018

2017 was the year of the keto diet, the year of mushrooms in everything and the year we all learned how to pronounce ‘matcha’ and ‘acai’. This seems like the year everything shifted: people were more focused on health than diets. Every state in the country declared war on the pharmaceutical industry. Yoga wasn’t just for the yogi’s anymore.

This coming year, the evolution continues. I firmly believe that this is the year that we wake up and realize that it’s our responsibility to care for Mother Earth, the year we pay attention to what we’re consuming – and why. 2018 is the year of the mission: the mission to improve. Between a collective consciousness awakening and the impact of our place as humans emerging, we’re bound to sprint headfirst in the direction of continued wellness.

Plus, we can indulge in some cool new products along the way!

Evolution is the ideal word for what 2018 promises. Here are some hot trends to look out for…

PLANETARY ALIGNMENT

There’s already a ton of science based evidence that climate change is having a detrimental effect on our health. Between the natural disasters, regulation rollbacks and national monument upheavals, I believe 2018 is the year that we start paying attention to the planet. When I started my petition to save the endangered trees in San Diego in November, I kept hearing the same thing from everyone: “We need more of this.” And it’s true – we do.

We need more people who care, more people who are involved and more people who are passionate. I believe this will be the year that people realize they have no choice but to get involved. Without every day people standing up for the rights of the soil and the trees and the air, mega corporations think it’s okay to pollute, deforest and destroy our environment. No one is going to save the planet for you. You have to start the revolution. And only you can. I believe this is the year we all will.

I firmly believe brands will begin to jump on this trend too. Corporations like One Tree Planted are partnering with brands like Genetix to plant a tree for every order placed. I think it’s an incredible way to creative a massive, positive environmental impact. It also shows consumers what’s important to the brands and brand owners, which in and of itself is a massive commercial disruption.

Pick up these books in the new year to get started on your own planetary mission:

 

Powder Power

Daunted by the idea of taking 460496 supplements a day? Now, you don’t have to!

Powders are the newest way to get your vitamins in – and now, they taste DELICIOUS! A handful of awesome potion brands emerged on the market in 2017, and I foresee a lot more people jumping on board to this relaxing, delightful and delectable way to stay well! Healing spices can tackle everything from pain to bad skin, and there are endless ways to incorporate them into your diet. I mean, this one straight up tastes like hot chocolate.


NEW Superhero Ingredients

You’ll be seeing some new ingredients pop up in your skincare and grocery aisles. Look out for Melatonin in your skincare, jackfruit at your fruit stand and cassava in your cupboard. They all have incredible anti-oxidant properties that soothe skin, aid digestion and reduce inflammation. They’re gluten free, dairy free and cassava is rich in fiber.


Hormone Revolution

Women are finally taking back their hormones. I predict that 2018 is the year women start to question why they’ve chosen certain methods of birth control, and perhaps look for natural options to address many of the symptoms BC is prescribed for, such as acne, mood swings and PCOS. There are many supplements that support feminine estrogen balance, and I foresee estrogen-regulating (and breakout tackling!) DIM taking a big front seat this year, along with Fenugreek and Echinacea. Fenugreek helps with breast milk supply and lowers inflammation. Echinacea encourages the immune system and reduces many of the symptoms of colds, flu and some other illnesses, infections, and conditions as well as improves depression symptoms, heals skin and tackles inflammation.


SELF-CARE

People – women especially – are coming to realize that self-care is not a luxury; it’s a necessity.

I think this is the year people finally connect back to nature. Take that leisurely hike in the morning. Put the kids to bed early. Draw that bath – every night. I think this is the year people finally connect back to nature and dive deeper within. It doesn’t have to be a drastic lifestyle change – self-care is about practicing small rituals every single day that add up to an improved existence. There are also so many ways to practice it; from journaling every night to lighting your favorite candle and curling up with a good book, to doing a phone detox every morning – finding the time to connect with ourselves can – and should – be paramount in 2018.

Here are some books to get you inspired…

 

 

 

 

 

 


PET FOOD THAT RIVALS YOURS

As more people than ever are cleaning up their food choices and asking “Wait, WHAT’S in this?!”—their pets’ plates are getting a makeover too.

I think the top 5 question I get asked in person is what I feed Raelie and Ruca. If you follow my Instagram stories, you may know that I make them dinner from scratch every night: organic meat, potatoes, veggies, carrots, chia seeds, healing oils and spices. And honestly – I’ve saved a lot of money this way! Yes, maybe my mouth waters when I make them their food… but they’re not complaining! Plus, I have the peace of mind knowing whats in it, and they tend to gobble it up in .5 seconds, so I’ll take that as a hell yes from them, too.

Don’t have the time to do this? That’s A-OK! Pet food brands are committing to high-quality kibble made from fresh, whole, and clean ingredients (no GMOs or grains for *your* fur-baby)—and even recipes that have been tested on humans.

Don’t forget to put oils (designed for cats and dogs) into your furry friend’s diet, too! This helps with joints, keeps coat shiny and increases energy and endurance.

Here are our favorites:

 

 

 

 

 


BRAIN BOOSTING SUPPLEMENTS

They’re called nootropics – and they’re on the rise. Nootropics – often called smartdrugs – have been circulating since the late 90’s by wellness guru’s like Dave Asprey (Bulletproof Coffee). Dave says, “I remember opening the unmarked brown package and wondering whether the pharmaceuticals and natural substances would really enhance my brain.

They did, and I’ve been a big fan of certain cognitive enhancers ever since.”

Dave’s favorite nootropic is modafinil. “When I first started taking modafinil,” Dave says, “I felt more like myself than I had in years. I took it just about every day in varying doses for 8 years (with a physician’s prescription). It gave me energy and changed my life. I would not be the biohacker I am today without modafinil.”

Always consult your doctor before incorporating supplements.

Here are our top natural, non-Rx brain-boosting helpers:

 

 

 


NATURAL BEAUTY CONTINUES IT’S RISE

The natural beauty market is estimated to be valued at $24 Billion (that’s Billion with a capital B) by 2024, making it one of the fastest growing markets in the world – rivaling the tech boom!

Green beauty is finally getting its time in the spotlight, with giants like Target and Sephora finally jumping on the bandwagon. Companies are promising increased transparency, and people are finally waking up to the hot topics of ingredients in their skincare, deodorant, body wash, toothpaste and more. Folks were even learning that their fan favorite petroleum jelly, contains – you guessed it! – petroleum! YUCK!

Don’t wait to take control of your health! Beauty swaps are now affordable, effective and environmentally sound.

Here are some of my long-standing favorite green beauty swaps for commonly used products like face oil, vaseline and a gentle face scrub:

How To Successfully Treat Anemia (Without Iron Supplements!)

How To Successfully Treat Anemia (Without Iron Supplements!)

Iron depletion isn’t always the cause of anemia. You can see many improvements by taking control of your anemia and addressing the root cause of your deficiency.

Here’s how I cured my anemia – without iron supplements!


Tanning in the summer used to go something like this:

  • Start out a translucent, pasty white color.
  • Lay in the sun for 5 mins – 1 hour.
  • Emerge as a gorgeous, bronze goddess color.
  • Shower, eat, sleep.
  • Wake up pasty white.

“Color” has never lasted more than a day for me, no matter what I did. However, last year when I got my blood work done, my doctor pointed out why.

I was severely anemic (which means I have an impaired production of red blood cells). But I wasn’t just regular ol’ anemic. My hemoglobin levels were dangerously low. This made sense as I had all the signs: fatigue, pale skin, cold hands and feet, occasional headaches and severe weakness. Oh, and serious problems keeping a tan.

My doctor gave me two options: get a blood transfusion or get my red blood cell count up.

I wisely chose the later.

I tried iron supplements with no real improvements. This is because iron depletion isn’t always the cause of anemia.

If iron depletion is not the source of the problem, this can result in iron overload and still leave the person suffering from anemia and its effects. Therefore, it is extremely important to figure out the type and cause of your anemia and address the underlying issue.

Since making my red blood cell count commitment, I’ve been working on getting my anemia under control and can happily say that today, I have! My skin has become a healthy, glowing olive color. My red blood cell count is fabulously average, my tans last, my energy is WAY up and my health has never been better! You can see many improvements by taking control of your anemia and addressing the root cause of your deficiency.

Here’s how I cured my anemia – without iron supplements!

OLIVE LEAF EXTRACT I believe olive leaf extract was the key to getting better, in my case. It contains a high rate of vitamin C, B and iron. This one supplement improves cardiovascular and immune system support. It increases your energy and promotes healthy blood pressure. Because olive leaf is an antioxidant, it helps to combat the damage caused by free radicals and protects the brain from memory loss associated with anemia.

VITAMIN A Vitamin A deficiency is recognized to cause anemia. Vitamin A positively affects iron mobilization, repairs hemoglobin synthesis, and helps iron deficiency that is caused by anemia. I absolutely LOVE these Vitamin A drops – you only need ONE drop a day for maximum absorption, but I use a generous amount in my tea, water and kombucha every day.

VITAMIN D A study in Los Angeles found a link between vitamin D deficiency and anemia. The women with low levels had a much higher risk of anemia. Lower vitamin D levels were associated with lower hemoglobin levels and anemia. Vitamin D supplementation can positively increase oxygen levels in the blood, therefore helping to cure anemia. I love these Vitamin D drops. You can also apply Vitamin D topically for a glowing complexion.

FOLATE Having too little folate (vitamin B9) in your blood causes the folic acid deficiency that, in essence, is anemia. Folate is necessary for your body to make new red blood cells. Your body needs red blood cells to carry oxygen to your organs. Supplementing with folate encourages your body to produce these red blood cells naturally.

VITAMIN C helps you to absorb more iron. I love these delicious organic Vitamin C candies! Viamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is not made in the body but must be obtained from foods or supplements. Vitamin C plays a number of important roles in the body, including enhancing the absorption of iron. Iron helps make hemoglobin, the part of the red blood cell that carries oxygen. Vitamin C also aids in red blood cell production. A vitamin C deficiency can lead to anemia, or low red blood cell count. Taking vitamin C supplements can drastically improve vitamin C deficiency anemia as well as other types of anemia.

PRO TIP: I also increased my intake of organic, grass fed meat, olive oil, spinach and carrots, which are all high in vitamins and proteins that increase red blood cell count. Avoid caffeine and alcohol if possible.

My Favorites: Health + Wellness

My Favorites: Health + Wellness

Hi angels! I’m writing to you from my sun soaked backyard in San Diego, surrounded by bamboo and looking off into the distance at the violet, palm tree-lined mountains.

Every time I get to enjoy a weekday like this, I think back to my twenty-five years in New York, chasing sunshine in the summer during short lunch breaks at my grueling laboratory job, and wishing I could get paid to write. I always think back to the frustrated feeling of watching life pass me by as I worked tirelessly, many day for reasons I wasn’t even clear on.

It’s such a contrast.

Today, I have stopped worrying about if things are finished or perfect. I have stopped caring if things happen on my timeline. If life pulls me in a different direction, I go there. When a voice inside me says paint, I listen. When my body tells me what it craves, I nourish it. When I feel stagnant, I move. When I feel lazy, I hustle. When I miss making music, I make it. This is the great flow of the cosmos living and moving eloquently inside of and outside of me. There is no longer a voice that says no. Creation is a must for me, in all its forms.

My top tip for creating the life of your dreams is to commit to something bigger than yourself. The fastest path to success starts with enriching your spiritual practice – your ability to look within.

In my experience, you really truly cannot create something meaningful without first having an authentic, loving connection and relationship with yourself. I feel so incredibly grateful for the fact that I get to set my own goals and my own schedule nowadays. And while YES – I end up working WAY MORE now than I did when I was clocking in for someone else – at least I am working on projects that *I* want to work on and am accomplishing and checking goals off my lists that I want to do. It’s so liberating — that feeling of freedom never gets old to me.

I’m so grateful to the wonderful humans who created the projects (and products!) that have shaped my health – without any guarantee that they’d pay off. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for those people – specifically, the people who wrote the books that put me in this mindset to get healthy. The people who made the products that inspired me to get out of bed when I was at my sickest. The people who, through their passion and their stories, inspired me to switch mindsets from I CANNOT to OF COURSE I CAN.

I wanted to feature the incredible brands that do better – so that people like us can feel TRULY well and do what we love and were put on this earth to do.

This might even end up being a Part I, because the list for me is totally endless. Without further ado, here are my health and wellness faves right now:

The Psychic Power of Plants is one of my favorite books of all time. Not only is this gem the original copy published by Signet in 1974 (which makes me giddy!), it confirms, answers and COMPLETELY blows your mind about plant life. Careful scientific testing has shown that plants respond not only to physical care but to mental stimulus as well. Thoughts of violence can be just as damaging to a plant psychically as overwatering is to its roots. Feelings of love can stimulate a plant as much as the most expensive plant foods. This book is fascinating and has really inspired me in my own work recently, as I’m working on book #2 right now 🙂

I started putting He Sho Wu in everything again and have kicked about 5 different colds that threatened to sneak up on me. I LOVE this stuff! I use this in my teas, on my salads and as seasoning for meats, bread and soups. He Shou Wu is a traditional herb and tonic that has a history of use as a longevity, anti-aging, blood-building, beauty, & rejuvenation food. Regular consumption of this herb may tonify and nourish the blood, hair, skin, nervous system, sexual center, shen (Spirit), and Jing (primary essence/life force). It is a tonic for the endocrine glands and may help improve stamina. It’s especially good for resistance to cold by promoting red blood cells. This enhances immune function and increases antioxidant activity.

You guys may have noticed that a few months ago we invested in a kombucha tap for The Organic Life HQ. It’s been AWESOME. We save a ton of money and have kombucha ON TAP! Did I mention it’s on tap?!

Right now we’re rocking GT’s Gingerade and Hibiscus Ginger. SO delicious and amazing! Because it’s naturally fermented with a living colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is a probiotic beverage. This has a myriad of benefits such as improved digestion, fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, mental clarity, and mood stability. We sip these all day long for energy, gut balance and because they’re really yummy!

Seriously obsessed with this organic soothing body scrub! I use it every night and it’s made SUCH a difference in my skin. Especially in the summer, to fight off dirt, grime and sweat, it’s a MUST! My legs have never been so smooth!

Have a painful or difficult period? This oil has totally balanced me and truly helps during moon time. Seriously, such a lifesaver! Check it out.

I never ever ever ever leave the house without my Swell bottle! I go on hikes every single day and it’s a MUST for hydration!

Did you guys see how to protect yourself from negative energy? A huge part of my practice is protection jewels. My current (and long-time) favorite has been Selenite, a powerful cleansing tool to have in your home, office and sacred space, as it will constantly cleanse, clear and protect the energy of your environment. I also love this Selenite necklace, which provides on-the-go protection from negative vibes. It’s pretty much The Year of the Hater, so I know we could all use it – haha!

Need some bliss in your life? Try this Bliss Booster by MoonDeli, one of my new favorite companies ever! Built along the likes of Sun Potion and Moon Juice, MoonDeli provides high-quality blends of adaptogens, anti-inflammatory herbs and flowers in powder form, for easy-to-add access to your body’s favorite tonics. This cayenne-spiked raw cacao and maca root blend with notes of cinnamon may help relieve stress, enhance vitality, and bring the mind into the present.

This is going to be your fitness best friend! One inexpensive product, that helps develop core strength and improve coordination, balance, and endurance. I LOVE mine!

Thanks for reading my loves! I love sharing these posts with you! Do you have any health and wellness favorites? I’d love to hear about them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

How To Naturally Overcome Depression and Anxiety: (My Interview with The Wellness Hour)

How To Naturally Overcome Depression and Anxiety: (My Interview with The Wellness Hour)

My whole life I searched for meaning: in other people, in pharmaceutical drugs, in a drink, in a party, in a good grade. And it was right here all along, waiting for me to recognize it.

Honestly, it isn’t easy to talk about things like my mother’s drug and alcohol abuse or her overdosing in front of me as a kid.

It isn’t easy to speak about being the child of drug addicts, or being adopted or going through withdrawal myself for three years (after being on meds for almost half my life.)

It’s not easy to share my entire life story with near strangers, including the difficult stuff, the beautiful moments and everything in between.

It’s wasn’t easy to bear my soul on 250 more pages than I was obligated to write.

But it was worth it. It’s all been so, so worth it.

I am so grateful to share this experience on overcoming my fight with anxiety and depression – totally naturally. After so many years fighting what seemed like an uphill battle – against my circumstances, my labels and my environment – it’s incredible to know what it was all for.

The meaning IS your story. It is your most difficult days and your reckless choices and the times you fuck up. As long as you get back up every.damn.time, you’re golden.

Six year old, thirteen year old, twenty year old you will be SO proud of you. She truly will.

Thank you for reminding me ????? Thank you for giving me a platform and a voice.

Adrian Grenier Wants To Help You Save The Planet (And You’re Gonna Love It!)

Adrian Grenier Wants To Help You Save The Planet (And You’re Gonna Love It!)

Living by the ocean during the last few years, I’ve become very passionate about ocean conservation.

By that, I mean I WILL certainly tell a stranger’s kids to stop digging at the cliffs. I will educate a vacationer on using the trashcan. It means I’ll happily pick up bits and pieces of litter that wash up from the sea on my own free time.

What I’ve found throughout this time is that activism is surprisingly EASY.

Most of the time, it doesn’t require a big donation or even a lot of education.

True activism is a feeling you get when you see injustice.

Activism is simply the willingness to fight injustice – head on.

At the beginning of May, I got an opportunity to do just that. A personal invite from The Lonely Whale Foundation along with my good friend Isa to go whale watching and see the ocean and it’s intricate marine life first-hand.

Many of you may known Adrian Grenier from his movies. Some of you may know him from his hit HBO show, Entourage, that was on for eight seasons. Some of you may be familiar with Adrian’s beer company, his production company or the musical acts he represents. This multi-talented man wears many hats.

That day, I got to know Adrian as a kind friend and a dedicated activist. Adrian started The Lonely Whale Foundation in 2015 in order to educate and inspire others about one of his greatest passions: ocean wildlife.

The Lonely Whale Foundation is dedicated to bringing people closer to the world’s oceans through education and awareness, inspiring empathy and action for ocean health and the wellbeing of marine wildlife.

What I learned is that 100,000 marine creatures die every year from plastics in our ocean.

On our whale watch alone, 6 plastic party balloons were saved from the sea.

It’s a privilege to live on such a beautiful planet with marine life. They’re incredible creatures. There is an endless planet underwater that needs our help to thrive. They’re our allies on the earth!

The government is doing NOTHING about this. ALL of the action happening to protect the ocean is privately funded. It comes from people who care opening their wallets and deciding that this is something they want to put their hard-earned money towards. That was eye opening to me.

Without any money to donate, I asked, what can we do?

Turns out, you may already be doing a lot of it. And some of the suggestions are so easy, I knew I had to share them with you! These suggestions were born from my conversations with Adrian and The Lonely Whale Foundation throughout the day.

Here are 4 simple ways that you can save the ocean: 

4. 80 percent of pollution enters the ocean from the land. The average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.  We use over 500 million straws every day in America, and most of those end up in our oceans, polluting the water and killing marine life. We want to encourage people to stop using plastic straws for good. If we don’t act now, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

By just simply switching to glass straws, you alone can save thousands of straws from unnecessarily being wasted in your lifetime. Here are the glass ones that I use! These bamboo straws are great too – also not as breakable as the glass! It depends on your preference. 🙂

3. There are still a few pockets of land in this world that are untouched – that strive to protect their marine life. One of the best ways that you can donate back to this preservation is by visiting and truly experiencing those places. There is no education quite like first-hand knowledge. 

The next time you book a vacation or a retreat, research the culture of where you are visiting. What do they do to preserve their land and protect their wildlife?

For instance, I am running a wellness retreat in August in the paradise island of Huahine, Tahiti and the profits go straight back to the island. This will keep their reefs a clear, pristine aqua and their marine life thriving for many years. It’s very important to me that what I do gives back – and the feeling of knowing you’re helping to preserve the planet is unmatched to any other feeling of giving back. This is the very best way that you can educate, inspire and promote true organic living as well as save our oceans directly!

2. Few people realize that straws are among the top 10 items found during beach clean ups (I know I had no idea!) Straws can do so much harm to seabirds, turtles and other marine creatures. An estimated 71% of seabirds and 30% of turtles have been found with plastics in their stomachs. When they ingest plastic, marine life has a 50% mortality rate. What would our oceans be without marine life?

Already using glass straws? Awesome! Join the #stopsucking campaign! Just share a photo of yourself using a glass straw on FB, twitter or instagram and use hashtag #STOPSUCKING to express why it’s important to you. Spreading awareness of these facts is a key part to starting major change!

1. Always (and I mean ALWAYS) bring your to-go mug with you to the coffee shop, smoothie shop or restaurants. This saves countless plastic bottles being wasted – per day!!

I take my Swell bottle with me everywhere – since it carries both hot and cold drinks, I don’t have to worry about if I need to bring tea or a smoothie (or bring a smoothie and then get tea!) This is one of my favorite ways to reduce lids, plastic cups and/or plastic-lined cups. I used this method on my recent scouting trip to Tahiti and it saved me dozens of plastic bottles!  

The biggest thank you to The Lonely Whale Foundation, Adrian Grenier + Isa’s Restoratives, for the best day ever, and for bringing awareness to this important cause.

The Organic Life Retreat on the French Polynesian Paradise Island of Huahine

The Organic Life Retreat on the French Polynesian Paradise Island of Huahine

BOOK NOW!

If you’ve ever had the desire to get away from it all, the perfect experience has been custom designed for you.

The island equivalent of the Garden of Eden, Huahine is an immense tropical jungle thriving with coconut plantations, vanilla orchids, banana groves, breadfruit trees and watermelon fields. Beyond its lush landscapes and bright blooms, Huahine is also a culturally preserved sanctuary with sacred temples hidden throughout dense vegetation. Undoubtedly, this island will leave you spellbound.

The Organic Life Wellness Retreat will be held this year in November on the island of Huahine. Huahine is exceptionally green because fewer travelers frequent her sandy shores and lush hillsides than her favored counterparts, Moorea and Bora Bora. For this reason, though, Huahine has retained the alluring essence and authenticity of early Polynesia. The locals pride themselves on preserving what they genuinely believe is the most picturesque island in Tahiti; and those who visit often find that Huahine becomes their favorite island, returning again and again to find the same landscape still unchanged over time.

Lush and scarcely developed, this is an island to visit for extreme calm, communing with nature and a genuine taste of culture. There are plenty of opportunities for diving, surfing, snorkeling, exploring top-notch archaeological sites and horse riding, but the beauty of this unique paradise is just how easy it is to relax and do very little at all.

With only eight small villages scattered across the island, the few residents welcome visitors with great kindness. Not surprisingly, this fertile world offers rich soil providing the local farmers a bountiful harvest of vanilla, melons and bananas. This month I met with Ao Nui Adventures, who will be providing us with a warm, family-style welcome and accommodations throughout our stay. This 5 night experience is intimate – we are accepting less than 10 guests to stay in their own gorgeous, beach front VIP property.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Featured sessions on natural herbs for treating various illnesses
  • Mindful Meditations
  • Light Yoga
  • Body Connection Workshop
  • Exploring Nature in Huahine

  • BBQ Lunch on Private Island
  • Meeting the local Medicine Mama + Papa and learning ancient healing secrets
  • Tasting the local liquer store
  • Swimming
  • Hiking to lush overlooks
  • Healing through organic, wild caught, raw + native foods
  • Organic fruit and vegetable farm visit – learn how the people of Huahine make their own bio-diesel – naturally!
  • Learning about how the people preserve their native culture + habitat
  • Plus other exciting activities that will deeply connect you to this once in a lifetime experience!

The Huahine 5 nights package includes:

THE VIP EXPERIENCE:

COST + COMPARISON:

Included in your price is your roundtrip flight, travel, ride to your room to and from the airport, 5 nights of your room, board, bungalow, daily meals, drinks, beauty products and gift bags! You will come away relaxed with a one of a kind, life changing wellness experience.

$2990 per person based on double occupancy. *You may also upgrade to lagoon bungalow – add $100 additional per person. Or add $200 per person for beach bungalow, based on double occupancy.

We also accept payment through payment plans, so you don’t have to pay the entire cost all at once! This can make it way more affordable, especially if you start now.

This trip is a major steal! In comparison, this retreat is roughly 1/4 of the price you would normally pay for a roundtrip flight, 5 night (6 day!) stay and accommodation in Huahine. However, you will receive so much more than a much needed paradise vacation. This is an immersive wellness experience that is designed to remind you of your connection to the earth. Since we are being hosted by a family who is so closely connected with the island, there will be a familial and welcoming feel to the retreat that is not only invaluable – it is otherwise unobtainable.

Plus – there is no pressure! I want each guest to do exactly what they are lead to do by their heart. Not only will we be getting back to our natural roots, we’ll be learning to listen to our body as well as our minds!

The spell cast by Huahine will last a lifetime. First timers will love the welcoming hospitality of the locals and the absolute serenity of the island’s natural surroundings. Mystical, captivating and alluring, Huahine is admittedly one of the more beautiful islands in French Polynesia.

I’m so excited to see you there! Spots are filling up quickly! If you’re interested, BOOK NOW!
