A Whole Day Off! Last night while some of the hoopers went out for cocktails and shenanigans I opted for a hot bath and deep massage! YES! That was a good way to initiate my 36 hour break between retreat weeks. I had a nice sleep in until 9AM when the cicadas were so loud and the sun was so bright I had to jump right out of bed and into my swimsuit to get to the pool. It felt so nice to know I had nothing to do really but sun and have fun today! Of course my writing is a major priority right now, but that is part of the fun ;) I am enjoying it more than I imagined I would, even though it is a large commitment. But hey, if I want to write a ‘best seller’ and make something of these words, I must make a habit of ‘being a writer’, and where better to do that than with my 40 Days in Bali? I took Kellen’s little 6 year old daughter, Kaya, on a virtual tour of the grounds through skype. She said “Wow that looks amazing! I wish I could teleport there.” Smart kid. One day, Kaya, you’ll be hooping with me here, too! :)
After a long while in the sun a few of us went on a trip into town and to the rice patties just outside of Ubud. I was happy to do some shopping and buy some gifts for friends, family and of course, myself. I found some amazing and unique pieces that you can only find here in Indonesia, and I am looking forward to sharing with my loved ones. It was also just super great to spend time with some of my best lady friends Caterina, Tiana, Morgan, Sofia and Bailey. We hired a driver to take us around, and enjoyed ourselves with some good ole’ retail therapy, and loads of photos and videos fun in front of the rice fields. I had an interesting moment where my foot slipped into the rice patty and got stuck in the mud! I was laughing so hard. My boot was the only thing to really get dirty. I did get a little bit of mud on one of my new and super sparkly HipTronic Hoops made by the lovely Lisa Disinger of HipTronic Arts, but that’s ok. Now the hoop has some character, and proof of being in Bali. (Shameless plug alert) Speaking of new hoops, if you would like to purchase some seriously spectacular hand-crafted hula hoops click here and use the promocode ‘whitelightlove’ to begin hooping with the loveliest hoops on the planet! I love my new hoops and look forward to sharing all of the pretty pictures and photos I have taken with them here in Bali! :)
To complete our fun trip of rice patties and pictures, shopping and spending, we had a delightful dinner at the local favorite, Alchemy. After a coconut & greens drink, sensational salad, mouth watering raw quiche and a bite of raw chocolate I was high as a kite! We floated back to the hotel toting all of our goods, hugged the new-comers we found in the lobby (Gail O’Brian and Lynn Spencer-Nelson!) and all went off to our rooms to enjoy a night of relaxation and work details. I love the women I am friends with in this community! We are all so talented and straight up kindhearted, loving and likable folks. Everyone is just so easy to hang out with! I want us to all form a community and just live together, haha. Hoopers take over the world! Sounds like a ‘well-rounded’ society to me... ;)
I can feel the energy just building and building and am ready and grateful to begin Week Two of Sacred Circularities Bali 2015. So here I am, catching up on the final blog before Week Two begins. Feeling blessed that my passion in life has brought me here, and inspired to help others discover this for themselves.

I am not a business coach or career consultant, I am just an inspired woman living her dreams, and here to help you eliminate excuses and begin creating a life that inspires YOU! If you can live a life that you are inspired to wake up to every day, than your life will easily inspire others. That is how I got here, to Bali. Being inspired and in turn, letting that inspiration continue to flow through me. There are hundreds of hoopers coming here between March and July, so it’s not like this is some fantasy reality!

There is no reason NOT to make it out here. I promise, it is SO worth it. It is absolutely worth the time off, time away from family (bring them if it’s possible), time away from daily life and time away from a normal routine. Traveling to a foreign country changes lives and brings epic joy! We are having an amazing time and would love to see your face on this side of the screen. Until then.....
