Wander With Love: Yoga in Sri Lanka with Spiritual Gangster


 Ever get that feeling? Like your soul is speaking to you, heart restless with desire? You can’t pin point exactly what it’s saying, you can’t quite grasp it, yet there’s this energy bubbling within your chest or belly, telling you what you need.

Often times, our bodies speak to us in ways we struggle to fully understand. Matters of the heart versus matters of the brain. We rationalize, and attempt to find an explanation or a reason behind those feelings.

What if I told you to stop.

Stop over-thinking.

Stop trying to decipher, analyze and intellectualize. Start acting on it, trusting your intuition, leading with the heart rather than the head. That little voice inside, sometimes, you just have to shut it up. You have to follow whatever is tugging at your heart, close down the books and get moving. There’s a whole lot of life to live out there, a life of love, desire, adventure. You know you’re ready. The real question is:  will you follow it?

When your everyday sights and sounds start to weigh heavy on your heart, when that familiar feeling of monotony starts settling into your mind like a tired old song playing on repeat, it’s time to hit pause and change the record. In other words, it’s time for a refresh.

For me, that refresh was following my heart to Sri Lanka. It was calling and had been calling for some time – only now, it could no longer be ignored. Travel is the best way to feed the body and mind, so your eyes can set their gaze on new sights and your ears can hear new sounds. Like a fresh breath in to sigh all the old stuff out.

Sri Lanka, land of palm trees, coconuts, tea plantations, elephants, and a slow, whimsical approach to life. Everything from the train rides to the beaches and the hill tops breathe this subtle energy of life; a gratitude towards every living being.

I discovered this pearl in the Indian ocean and let my heart guide itself to a journey of healing, discovery and most importantly, fun. It was a short stop but one that was impactful, simply thanks to the feeling of allowing myself the pleasure of exploring, to roam with no agenda. In other words, to wander with love.
