Was fortunate to have met and scheduled a photoshoot with this talented and gorgeous photographer. The warmth and care she took with me was refreshingly appreciated. If you are on Koh Phangan, Thailand, find her. (I will add contact info.) #islandphotoshoot#kohpahangphotogrpaher#missganesha_make_over

I have no idea where I will be! And I love it. Learning to trust the ‘going with the flow,’ being willing to take radical left turns at any given moment. This is a new muscle for me. ~~~ In these luscious swirling warm-cool waters, I float, I swim, I pee, I breathe, I hold my breath (practicing new-ish kundalini.) I meditate on what is true, for me, and now. What to release? And where and how? One goal is to just love more. To fully claim with unabashed fierceness, my life, my love, my emotional range, and all my choices. In the gorgeous paradise the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Phangan. #orionhealingcenter#kundaliniyoga#soundhealing#nomadlife#decemberinkohphangan#catherinerose#postyogaglow#goingwiththeflow#willingtorelease#lifechanges#meditationsinthesea#nomadlife#sunsetdancing

Moringa turmeric cinnamon smoothie with a scoop of my collagen powder on the beach at the Orion Healing Center. This place has become one of my favorite hubs to both connect with other humans, enjoy super clean healthy food, gorgeous sea views, get cozy on the pillows or hammocks, play on the beach swings, read, write, daydream, as well as take classes. Yesterday I started learning how to make macrame earrings from a young woman who taught herself this art while traveling in India. She sold her pieces to survive and now offers donation based classes while she is in town. Our group included around 8 women from Europe, Australia, USA, UK and three of us went by some version of Catherine. We occupied a large community table and the class continued past the scheduled time. Women chatting with new friends and helping one another with our finger focus intensive projects. I loved it. And I appreciate the Orion for offering both structured yoga meditation classes and these more informal donation based drop-ins. The very idea of Nomads having a place to drop in to share their knowledge with others, and then move along, as called is inspiring. There is a aliveness here, a creative spark and generosity to this culture. Today I took my second kundalini yoga sound healing meditation class. I left feeling pretty f*cking exalted as a human. Feeling reeeelaxed. Vewy, vewy relaxed; happy. Island life. This place has a way of working its magic, especially the last week! Overall a gorgeous day in paradise with some sunshine and rainstorms. Life is good. Kaaa! #orionhealingcenter#kundaliniyoga#soundhealing#nomadlife#decemberinkohphangan#catherinerose#smoothies#postyogaglow

It’s rainy season on the island and I am feeling under the weather today, a little cranky. Need some sunshine. Too tired to take myself to my favorite cafe for a matcha latte, too tired to focus on a writing project, too achy to go to a yoga class, too blechy to feel inspired to do anything. I will post about my love of matcha instead. I love matcha green tea. It gives me super powers if only for a few hours.

#MatchaLove. Last day with my good friend Laura, visiting me in Thailand for two weeks from the SF Bay Area. We had our every other day treat of the finest matcha latte with homemade almond milk perfectly steamed and sweetened with fat brown sugar crystals. The little things...grateful this style of caffeination does not keep me up. ` ` ` ` #matchagreentealatte#catherinerose#overthemooncafekohphangan#caffeinelove#cafethailand#teawithfriends#nomadlife#ilovecafes#peopleincafes#caffeinatingwithfriends

’Meditations with Self’ This little creature is finally finding her place. Been working this one for weeks, with plenty of pauses. Close to complete or maybe even finished...I can see one more thing that needs to happen. #cathartink#nomadlife#abstractart#rawartists#bayareasrtist#creatureart#spikey#monsterart#mixedmedia#drawingoftheday#bloblove#oilpastel#watercolorpencils#watercolorandpastel#selfascreature

Close-up of an unfinished drawing. This piece is working me as I figure out what it needs. I recently started learning / practicing TRE with a wonderful teacher in Chiang Mai. Tammy includes body scans in her classes and there is always this invitation to speak with the part of the body that might need more attention: “I see you, I feel you, I am listening.” So, I ask of it the same question, as I keep working this little piece, as this piece keeps working me. #abstactart#rawart#cathartink#artthatteaches#artasabodypart#whattheheckisthis#fetalart#primalart#artthatcries#bayareaartist#nomadartist#travelingartist#watercolorpencils#painitngoftheday#drawingorpainting#chaingmaiartist
