My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just a big hearted scorpio trying to offer my best to the world while answering my personal callings and developing equanimity-based wisdom. I enjoy being around others who hold a similar view, and believe all forms of relationships should strive to be inspiring, considerate, and insight-sophisticating.

My Blog:

I am also a member of Shambhala Buddhism, a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, love the dharma's push to embody the most sustainable forms of happiness, and maintain my meditation practice to deepen my experience of inherent goodness, sanity, and shining power.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved to Portland to study herbalism. I am arriving from Peru, where I ran a retreat center in the jungle that offered natural medicine. Previously, I earned a grad degree in economics to explore my interest in social economics and the development of a humanistic, environmentally-concerned, participative, planned economy. It ultimately led me to appreciating gentle community building with community currencies and local exchange networks. Go Time Banking.

So long as my food is very well flavored, I'm happy. But it's even better when it's super healthy. I love feeling amazing from eating tons of raw food, and love finding the right balance of kale to pineapple in the juicer. :)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
plant medicine
honest, compassionate communication
connecting deeply with people
eating well
audio books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How it could be.

I dream of a sane culture in which human development is always the top priority; where caring about sustainability and all forms of dignity and intelligence is completely ordinary (for those that recognize it, this refers to PROUT). Until then, I work on being accepting.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Praying to the Divine to let the awareness of sacred interdependence manifest throughout economy and society.

At the Shambhala Buddhist Center,
studying herbalism,
in a jazz club,
singing kirtan,
practicing yoga,
at dinner with friends,
staring at the stars.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My understanding of genuine growth is expanding. Expanding from within-building more connection to my inherently wise, compassionate heart. Expanding outwards- ingesting plants and trees to build a relationship with them, and sharpen physical and mental facilities.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're intellectually curious to the world, love discussing perceptions in order to refine ideas, have a deep spiritual appreciation for the world, appreciate the place of plants and nature in our lives, have a beautiful vision for how the world could operate, love natural healing, or love finding new ways to feel great all the time.

I'm interested in building relationships with loving, spiritual intellectuals who are focused on transcending ego and materialism. These people are instead focused on developing wisdom, exploring spiritual depths, nurturing meaningful, supportive relationships, understanding subtle and gross obstacles, and finding ways to bring wise change for human development into the world.
