Trip to the Woods

Last weekend Ram and I took a trip to the woods. I wanted to clear my mind and connect to my center. When I'm grounded and centered I can hear my inner wisdom better. I was intent on answering a question that has been heavy on my heart. Should I stay in Israel or go… Continue reading Trip to the Woods

Desert Shenanigans Part 1

I love the desert! So when Ram suggested we take a trip there, I was all in! A little over an hour into our drive the grass fields and lush trees faded to hills of sand and rocks.

The small and the BIG

Our first few days in the desert we went through the small Makhtesh and along the edge of the big Makhtesh (the small and big craters)! Both are jaw dropping, ego shrinking sights. The cliffs, rocks, canyons and colors are mind blowing. I wish you could see them yourself.  The small crater was so special… Continue reading The small and the BIG
