As most of you know, I have been on walkabout for the past 2 years. Walkabout historically refers to a rite of passage during which one would journey into the wilderness for a time to listen, and basically, return to the essence of who they are. And I am so grateful for your company as I have traveled. For me, it has been a profound experience, each and every day offering up opportunities to identify and release ways of being that no longer serve me or humanity to the fullest potential. For most of my friends and family it has seemed radical: living day to day without planning, not producing much, nowhere to go, nothing to get or achieve, very few goals. In this western world of “achieve, achieve, achieve,” this is Radical indeed. And yet most of my friends desire the experience themselves. Deep within, “Radical” is calling them, because radical actually means a return to ones roots or origin. And our greatest desire is to embody our inner truth and our unique expression of it.
During this walkabout, although I’ve not been “working” much per se, I have produced a couple of things.
One is a children’s book called, “The Little Apple Tree” (link in bio). This book is my heart. And belongs to all of us. For this reason, I am uploading a short movie of it here for you to enjoy and share freely.
And the other is a book that I’ve only begun, called, “Confessions of a Serial Monogamist, Journey through the men I loved to the me I love.” It is about my walkabout, which you have been a part of all along and for which I am eternally grateful.
In a few days, I am headed to Peru. Then I will be tucked away in nature for a couple of months, completely unplugged and off grid as much as possible to listen more deeply and to complete “Confessions,” if the inspiration springs forth.
I will be silent on Social Media during this time, but please know that I will be sending you loads of love and light from wherever I am. There may be some updates, but only through email. Please sign up at beautifulbynia.com for those updates.
In the mean time, you can find the intro to Confessions of a Serial Monogamist on my blog.
I love you like crazy!
