the art of being present


Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like…. Tao Tzu

Many of us live our lives trying to do everything in ‘Perfection’ mode.

We plan our days and weeks, to the tiniest details, in order to do things ‘right’ and get everything done ‘according to plan’…. only to become frustrated, when ‘life happens’, and our plans are diverted, sometimes indefinitely.

For weeks and months, we try to perfectly prepare and plan, the start of a new project… only to be disappointed when our project doesn’t move, beyond the beginning stages, because we’re trying too hard to make everything ‘perfectly right’ before we start it.  

The fact is:

Overplanning kills the Magic of Life.

When you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing.

When you plan your life to the minute, you miss out on having fun.

When everything has to be done perfectly, many things actually don’t get done at all.

When was the last time you lived out of your ‘Familiar Zone’, where everything is unplanned?

Waking up in the morning and setting an intention for a day of Creativity, Fun, Adventure, and Magic…

Finding the balance between the plan to reaching your goal (the future) and life in the present moment.

Falling in love with your goal, not your plan!

Come join us on an adventure of a lifetime… Relax and create your daily PLAY (like a child).

A fun-filled week in Trabzon, the Switzerland of Turkey, and ending in Batum, Georgia.
