In November 2019 I took a two week solo quest through the North Island, New Zealand. I centered my trip around water- hot springs, outdoor hot tubs, the ocean, etc. I followed my intuition from place to place, taking in the landscape, energy, and sense of the island. I stayed in remote glamping sites filled with amazing bird songs and always sheep and a few cows nearby. The entire journey was healing and transformational, and the people of New Zealand were warm and kind. I took in the history of the land, the culture, and the spirit of the landscape. I'm excited to share this series with you. These works are an ode to the gift and magic of New Zealand-Aoteoroa, as well as a token for you, to inspire and provide magic. Perhaps they will bring up for you a dream you want to pursue, a place you want to journey to, or a memory of travel. Enjoy!
