Start right where you are

I tell now my experience until. I will try to do it with not too many words.

Cuba was such a crazy and special experience and we decided to dedicate a video episode itself to tell what we experienced.

Mexico welcomed me in a special way, we arrived at night in Cancun and the atmosphere was intense and somehow, unfortunately, it like smelled money.

We spent 2 weeks in Tulum and after some time to adapt ourselves to the new super "advanced" Mexico. Tulum is known for being a special place - a pueblo mágico, a town that has kept special traditional Mexican characteristics.

People in Tulum were friendly and smiley, it was impossible though to keep the eyes off the crazy gap between the powerful richness of touristy attractions and the locals living a very much austere life.

To be honest I felt touched. After Cuba it was a shock for me. And I still have difficulties understanding it.

In Tulum kilometers of beach have been literally bought by hotels, resorts and restaurants cutting down a big part of the forest and leaving little space to natural protected areas.

After we found a small apartment, we started connecting with the acroyoga-community in Tulum. The main contact was Dani, a splendid Argentinian acroyogi who has moved to Tulum. She immediately seemed to be so happy that we arrived in town. We met her banda of acroyogis and we started meeting every morning to share our knowledge about what we love in movement and they liked it. I felt again that amazing energy and wave of enthusiasm that drives people to approach such a challenging practice. Dani reminded me how wonderful it is to have the wish to learn with openness and trust at the beginning of it. I loved it and we decided to spread some acroyoga seeds in Tulum to involve more people. We taught a free workshop. It was open to everyone and it was in a magnificent space, in a sacred geodesic dome. 29 people came and it was wonderful.

 

And yes, the more time passes, the more I realize how much I love teaching beginners, it is fun and it always gives me a big dose of satisfaction and joy.

We left Tulum with lots of happiness and nice friends.

We went to DF, Mexico City for 2 days and then in the direction of Xico, Veracruz for the Acro-Conscious-Gathering, MexAcromagico. Our mission there was to help build the Casa de Piedra that would be hosting the gathering and also future activities. Kasper and I spent 3 days helping to clean and build until we both got very sick - our mission was now over. We got a stomach infection, and it was already the second time for me, so I suddenly felt very weak and tired; we literally spent the following days in bed. I felt frustrated and powerless, annoyed to be sick again (it also happened in Tulum). As soon as we felt better we decided to move back to DF, in any case unfortunately we missed the Gathering.

When I arrived in DF a sense of freedom and exploration covered my all my wishes; and as soon I had the energy I asked Kasper to spend this week in the city discovering and doing only nice things that would fill my heart with joy to recover and collect more energy for the future. We both agreed that my Mexican experience until now has been intense physically and we need to calm down. These days we are staying in a nice room in Roma Sur, a calm and safe zone of the city.

I realized only in these days how many things in life we take for granted; good food, sleep and silence for example. Not being able to eat nice food for a week and more, not coming back to my nice habits hurt my soul.

It's time now to do my best. Mexico will be more compassionate to me.

And more inspirations will come soon.

This quote inspired me in these days, I hope it will be to others too:

Wherever you are is always the right place. There is never a need to fix anything, to hitch up the bootstraps of the soul and start at some higher place. Start right where you are
