Bringing the SoulMat Roots Home

I am in Italy, and what I'm seeing here is knocking my socks off. It's not the fabulous Italian sandals (which by the way no Italian would ever wear socks with) or the lovely espresso I'm drinking. What's blowing my mind is seeing the Somat in action with so many...

Kerala Backwaters: One of National Geographic Traveler’s “Places of a Lifetime”

Alleppey is graceful and greenery-fringed, disappearing into a watery world of villages, punted canoes, toddy shops and, of course, houseboats. Float along and gaze over paddy fields of succulent green, curvaceous rice barges and village life along the banks, as you take in one of Kerala’s most mesmerisingly beautiful and relaxing experiences.

Kerala: God’s Own Country

While Maldives gives us mostly relaxation, Fort Kochi will provide a bit of an urban experience, but one steeped in history. Relax, breathe deep, and step out in soft cotton shoes and a straw hat.

SoulMat : Brush your Teeth, Floss your Back!

Creativity and the Gift of Conflict

Greetings from afar! I'm communing with Mother India, who speaks to my soul, who I can love or hate but never feel indifferent about. I'm here with a group of travellers who trust my dear friend Barbra and myself -- two wild women -- enough to follow us and our...

The Season of Sweetness

What I love most about this time of year is my persimmon tree. Did you know that the stunningly orange fruits ripen on the tree once the leaves have fallen off? As a child in Italy, this meant nothing to me--but I found myself drawing these trees and their fruit all...

Deeper Travel: India 2015 (4 spots remain!)

I love to travel and take the opportunity to deepen my education, whether it's formally or informally. The last time I was in India, I had an amazing experience with my friend Barbra. We've now turned it into a unique format for a trip happening January 25 - February...
