Finding my PURPOSE at the Envision Festival

I followed my passion and do what I love to do. I wander and interview people from all walks of life and learn as much as I can about the human experience. I do this to asking a simple question: "What are your top 5 values?" By expressing curiosity, placing exquisite attention, and holding space, I connect with and help people unearth who they were, who they are, and who they want to be....

RMV BANDChallenge RECAP/TESTIMONIAL (Rose Goossen)

I took on a five-week band challenge after meeting Tiffany through some mutual friends in Taipei. It was the end of the calendar year, and I was interested to do a ‘personal inventory’ that would help me to verbalize and examine some of my recent development, and give me some ideas to move forward with. I didn’t map out all five weeks in advance, because I preferred to allow the journey to inform itself, and to unfold as a voyage of discovery. In the end, I traveled through Patience, Pride, Curiosity, Integrity and Freedom.

...

Moving forward, I feel that I will be more diligent in exercising values in my daily life, and especially my interpersonal relations. Having spent five weeks examining and labeling my life with vocabulary related to values, I am more likely to contemplate which element of my own system of values I would like to exercise when I find myself in a complicated situation that requires action. The band challenge is an fun and versatile method for exploring conscience and consciousness, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in expanding and diversifying their understanding of personal identity.

Q&A

Q&A with Aria Reed, Founder of HappiMethod

I found Aria Reed’s Instagram Page @happimethod just randomly browsing my feed one day. I commented on one of her many inspirational messages (MIND OVER MATTER) and soon enough we started talking through DM, and then emails back and forth. We bonded over the similarities of our background and how we had felt misunderstood growing up. We shared stories of strength and an inner knowing that we are exactly where we need to be today.

I’m greatly humbled by the universal forces of connecting with another kindred spirit who spreads the message through HappiMethod “Humans Are Not Broken” as reMINDme preaches “You Are Not Alone”

Within the underlying message lies a profound knowing that we as a collective human species are all in this together and that our Purpose is to pool our collective energy to transcend our pain into purpose, hate into love. Especially during this time.

So after Burning Man, I packed my bags and went to LA to meet the women I met on Instagram. We met at a lounge in North Hollywood and sat talking nonstop. It was around 11 PM when we realized we’ve been chatting for 9 hours straight! Looking back, it was the sort of conversation that naturally flowed into the greater picture of bigger possibilities. The belief that we can inspire humanity while we are learning what we are preaching all the same, gaining strength and support knowing that we aren’t alone along the way.

Below is the interview as Aria opens up about her beliefs and positive views for how we can all shape the reality we want to create.

BREATHE TO SURRENDER

This post marks three different experiences I had with Aweli, Intuitive Healer and Reiki Practitioner.

I write this to reflect on the word breathe and to process the events leading up to surrender

Enclosed is a true story of my two hour healing session and how my mind and body mentally/physically felt when being pulled to access and release past trauma.

Q&A

Q&A with Drea Marz, Mover and Feeler

I met Andrea Marz in Austin a couple weeks ago. For those who don't know her, you can say she's an interesting, deeply felt, slightly eccentric human being. I instantly connected with her energy. I did a Values Dissect with her over Chai Tea and she spoke about the importance of embodiment, expression, surrender, connection, and love as integral guiding and anchoring values in her life.

On EMBODY

“And really what that means to me is feeling connected, to my physical body and where I’m at mentally. Being able to have thoughts that have them just as they are. Not attaching too much meaning to them, as well as being connected to my emotions. What am I feeling? And then feeling a connection to the world around me. So having all of the debris that keeps me separate dissolves. And that I’m able to have Right Response or just being able to respond with a conscious choice in every moment"
