Best thing about summertime? Meeting up with friends old & new, from near & far, for play, connection, creativity, adventure! This summer has been particularly fruitful and I am beyond grateful for all of the beautiful people in my life…

Another super-inspiring yoga teacher I met at Wanderlust Whistler was Canadian Eoin Finn, a surfer yogi who teaches “hammock enlightenment” and Blissology: “My life mission is to get in touch with the forces of Love, Joy, Happiness, as well as sorrows and grief, in order to open up to the Heart’s Message. I want to radiate this out as positive energy. That is the inspiration for the Blissology Project.” Here’s a great interview with Eoin from the Yoga Peeps if you want to learn more about his heart-opening, life-affirming, not-too-serious approach to being human: http://yogapeeps.com/main/2010/episode-81-eoin-finn-blissologist/582
