Hello! ↠ I’m Liz. ☽ In 2007, I got divorced, quit my job, sold everything, and, a year later, fell in love with my best friend, Lina. After marrying her + moving to Sweden, this space was created as a way to document my life as an American expat.  Over the years, it has continued to be a place where I share my adventures, experiences, and musings; but it has now evolved into the platform from which I share my passion for creating a slow, mindful + meaningful life.

As a contemplative life coach + mystic, I inspire others to discover + create their own life of meaning + magic by sharing stories of mine. My work is grounded in the belief that we are created to live an authentic life, free to be ourselves; and I share my own journey to this freedom of bliss to inspire you on yours. So, grab a cup of coffee or a yummy drink + settle in. It’s so nice to have you here! ✺

Why we should tap into our wild + native souls

9 Oct 2017 life coaching

This month, I’m creating + embarking on a vision quest. An internal one. Because I deeply feel that it is the perfect time for that. There’s so much I want to do, for myself + for this world, there’s so much that needs to be healed. And, I am so certain that I, and this world even, are at a threshold, a turning point, and the beginning of a new phase. Do you feel it too? You see, a visionRead More

An open letter to the world from an American in Sweden: We won’t back down… from love

8 Oct 2017 culture + art

When America is at its best, our bond + our spirit… it’s unbreakable. – Jason Aldean It’s hard to be an American in Sweden in times of tragedy. Honestly, it’s just freaking been hard to be an American in Sweden since last year’s election. I can’t be there to fight for what’s right… as beliefs, laws, and ideals of regular Americans are being stripped away and threatened by injustice. And, I can’t deal with all of the Europeans’ questions toRead More

I’ve had enough of thoughts + prayers. I want to see empathy in action.

6 Oct 2017 culture + art

Why must something happen to us in order for us to begin to give a damn? How is it possible that we cannot seem to take anyone else’s suffering into consideration – even when we haven’t been affected? Where is the fucking empathy? Why aren’t people able to step out of themselves, see another person, understand that they are struggling, and offer a bit of compassion? From hurricanes to refugees to gun shot victims + their families to simply howRead More

October’s harvest full moon: You belong among the wildflowers

4 Oct 2017 la luna

October is enchanting + mystical. It’s darker + cozier. And it’s filled with natural + spiritual symbols that constantly speak to us about letting go. The growing season is now complete, and it’s time to settle in. To let go of all that has been, to enter into the last part of this year, and to finally turn inward, with our harvest in our arms, so we can gather together all that we need for this next, slow, solitary periodRead More
