My Spiritual Journey
I guess you could call me a seeker…I sought to find myself in the rigors of academia, working hard to earn my accolades as well as pursuing success in the corporate world. Still, my quest continued, spilling into the depths of spirituality and the practices that open those pathways. All beautifully profound and difficult, yet with purpose. I continued looking for answers in the written word of the great teachers, ever loyal to the practices I held myself to. I realized at some point along life's journey that I had been living my life according to others ideals of how to live a "good" life and when I really asked myself the question, “what do I really want from this life?”, my honest answer had nothing to do with the life I was leading. In fact, I realized that continuing down my current path would never result in any real fulfillment because it was rooted in fear. Scarcity of time and money had been deeply in ingrained in me. The truth is that I had financial security, but had very little security in knowing how to discover the truth of what made me feel whole and know that this discovery was my purpose.
One day I took a trip, actually it took me… Each day I found an endlessly changing horizon, and each day a new and different sun. Through exotic landscapes, smells, foods and people I found pieces of myself and answers that could not have emerged otherwise. The lessons were silent and gorgeous on those dusty roads, staggering seascapes, and ancient buildings. I found myself in everyone and my connection to those before me and ahead.
My answer was clear: I wanted to have more authentic, joyful and rich experiences that would reveal my truth. Through years of travel and exploring the outer and inner worlds of my life, I have discovered, without hesitation, that the truest part of me wants to share the most spectacular parts of the world with you. I have found more freedom, abundance and love in my life, living this truth than in all of my years working in the rigors of the corporate world. I became committed to living through MY heart and passion, and mine alone and I hope to inspire others to do the same through personal development coaching and the retreats I have created.
Thus came the birth of Terra Vera, which means Real Earth, the one that I now feel so very connected to, humbled by and in love with. Come join me…a piece of you that you never imagined awaits on the other end of that flight.
