Ripples of Change

2014-06-12 07.18.31

As Be genki approaches its 10th birthday, I’m on one hand extremely excited and grateful to still be doing what I love to do – providing you with the inspiration and possibility for more energy, less stress, a better relationship with yourself and loved ones, and the possibility of a good night’s sleep.

“There Is No Way to Happiness. Happiness Is The Way.” Gautama Buddha

What is it about Bali that we love so much? Yes the climate is magnificent. Yes the beaches are stunning. Yes the scenery is sublime with a beautiful balance of softness and dramatic harshness. Yes the laid-back lifestyle is alluring. Bali is simply satisfying to the senses.

However, despite all these obvious charms, I believe the real beauty of Bali and that which draws us to the island again and again is the unmistakable spirituality emanating from the land and people. Continue reading
