“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”

Ben Okri

We’re back with another long-awaited installment of Ask Me Anything — a twist on my normal format where we answer questions submitted by you, the listener.

Today we update you on everything happening at our emerging commune before turning to listener questions. Topics include the internal journey required to translate passion into profession, plus the emotional awakening to be expected when you begin the practice of yoga and meditation.


Julie and I are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our first retreat Plantpower Tuscany May 21-28, 2016.

Imagine an immersive 7-day wellness experience with myself, Julie and a select group of just 40 people communing in a beautiful villa in the hills between Florence and Sienna. This is not a luxury vacation — it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform your life, reset your path, dial up your plate, unlock your creativity, connect with your authentic voice and cultivate your best relationship with yourself, your partner and the world. Together we will dine on incredible plant-based cuisine, practice daily meditation & yoga, and roll up our sleeves and get to work on ourselves through a series of intensive workshops we have specifically designed to optimize your wellness and unlock your best, most authentic self.

This is the retreat Julie and I have been dreaming about for years. We are beyond excited to finally offer this unique experience to you.

Space is limited to just 40 attendees, so if this opportunity sounds like the fit you’ve been looking for, please get in touch with us as soon as possible by sending an e-mail via the e-mail portal on (not the e-mail portal on this site please).

Enjoy the conversation and hope to meet you in Italy!

Peace + Plants,
