Dear world,

Welcome to my webpage! Here, I will let you in on my life stories, but before you start skimming through the many tabs and reading how they unfold, let me invite you to rest your awareness into your body for a moment, and take a conscious breath. Allow yourself to be with the sensations this life transforming, spontaneous act – which is what’s making it possible for you to be here in this very instant reading these words – and notice how this endearing friend can at its best feel unfamiliar for so many of us.

In gratitude,
Catarina

Let the rain coat
Your heart with serenity
And the sun radiate inner peace
