the 5th edition of Monticule is over and silence of nature is back on the hill.
Hundreds of spiritual warriors put all their energy & love into this collective vision. Without you we would be nothing and together possibilities are universal.
Thanks to all musicians for inviting us to this trippy journey through a wide space of electronic music. And thanks to all the beautiful listeners and dancers, who filled this space with energy and love.
Thanks to everyone who gave his part to this surreal gathering, it is wonderful to see how mindfulness and rave can go hand in hand. We’re already looking forward to next year.

🤪I started to take a series of selfies almost daily as a personal experiment to see if I'd notice a transformation when I started to realize I needed to make changes in my life. It's incredible to see the changes that have occurred since I started. Also, filters are fun...my inner child loves playing with them. 😉..
6 months ago, I saw the image of an aged, depleted, completely depressed child, deeply in pain, seeking love in all the wrong places, giving all my power away to those who just seemed to take all that I had to give and I received nothing short of what I thought I deserved. I was lied to, deceived, manipulated, condemned, used, disrespected, and disregarded, and I thought I deserved it..
💪I realized 3 months ago that I needed to "do the work" to learn how to have a healthy, loving relationship with myself. Codependency is a serious dis-ease that kills and I knew I needed to make some serious changes in my life in order to avoid becoming a statistic. I needed to save my own life..
✨Now, I barely recognize the hiding, shrinking ghost from that first Selfie. I feel like an empowered grown, woman who doesn't need validation or approval from others anymore. People often guess that I'm in my late twenties now (I'm 40). Self-love and joyfulness are great medicine. Of course, wearing a new, shade of sassy lip color also helps. Does that qualify as self-care? .
I'm grateful for my 12-step program, meetings, my sponsor, developing healthy relationships (with boundaries), & for every lesson and blessing along the way. It's nice to have been able to replace emotional struggles and perpetual fear with Emotional Sobriety, pure joy and love, as my normal state. As a friend in my fellowship shared: "I now chase bliss." I do the work every day & feeling joy & contentment in the Present moment is now my default state..😁💕🙏✌️
