“Everybody has a geography itself that can be used for change. That is why we travel to far-off places. Whether we know it or not, we need to renew ourselves in territories that are fresh and wild. We need to come home through the body of alien lands. For some, these are journeys of change are taken intentionally and mindfully. They are pilgrimages, occasions when Earth heals us directly. Pilgrimage has been for me, and many others, a form of inquiry in action.”

Well, it’s official! I’m moving to Hong Kong in September. A journey to the far East which I am thrilled to embark on! Seven years ago I moved to New York City. I came here because I knew it was where I belonged, where my creativity could be inspired, and my mind opened. As I look back at those seven years and survey the pieces of wisdom I have placed in my medicine pouch, I am amazed by how rich this thin slice of time has been. Hong Kong will be a new chapter in my life and the preparations for this journey holds within it the same anticipation and trust that carried me to New York.
A few answers to the burning questions people have had for me so far…
Why? and for how long? I’ll be accompanying my fiance who has received a new job based in Hong Kong for two years.
Are you still going to teach yoga!? Yes! I am so excited to get to know a brand new yoga community and find my place within it doing what I love to do. If you know any great teachers, yogis, healers, doulas, free spirits, or beautiful souls living in the area, please send their info my way!
What are you going to do with your cat? Boo will be moving to Hong Kong with us, of course! The little kitty that started life as a feral cat in Brooklyn is becoming a big city jet setter –and no she doesn’t need to go into quarantine coming from the US.
How do we stay connected? Isn’t it amazing how communication is so easy these days? I plan to write my story right here on this blog LisaDeviAdventures! And I promise when I return I will tell you everything I have learned along the way!
