AWAKEN: Women’s Discovery to Personal Power

What is personal power? A sense of confidence in your own skin, certainty in your decisions, and self-love overflowing from the inside out.

Awaken is a 2-day experiential course designed for women to master their emotional energy, and step into their sense of personal power. With trained facilitators and coaches leading you through a series of discussions and reflective exercises, Awaken aims to help women unlock limiting beliefs, and empower them to design their dream life.

GlobalMala2015

Manila, Philippines

Another year goes by, and the Global Mala Project grows bigger and bigger in Manila. People always ask me if there’s a yoga community in the Philippines, and this event is something I tell them to check out.

This year’s event is lined up for September 26, 2015 at Whitespace. It’s going to be a full day of amazing yoga sessions and talks. I was so thrilled to see this come together last year and am really looking forward to being home for this. ❤

Tickets go on sale Aug 26. (P650 pesos for early bird rate, P750 pesos for regular tickets). 100% of the proceeds will go to this year’s beneficiary, Children’s International.

Watch: CalCarries Philippines

My mother agency (in Manila) launched their Instagram account.

CalCarries Philippines is like my second family. I don’t get to see the other girls/guys so much because we are all bouncing around right now and evolving into new careers, but when we do catch up, it’s always filled with huge hugs and jumping screams of excitement.

I love these people so much and am grateful to have a strong home base that taught me a lot. Shoutout to Joey Espino, Audie Espino, Allan, Rose, and the rest of the fam.

Meet: Sofia Cope, Graphic Designer, Blogger, & Founder of Queencult and Viva La Manika

For some people, women who hold down a multitude of jobs at the same time (while killing it) is such a crazy concept. Gee, thanks. But from what I’ve seen the past couple of years, the limited perspectives of what one “can do” are currently being shattered. There is a surge of creative energy, and amazing next-gen tools, within the new generation that enables them to pursue whatever their hearts desire.

Sofia Cope is one of these women. The way she creates multiple platforms for her many voices renders me speechless. While I have never met her personally, we have so many mutual friends back home that it feels like she’s just that one girlfriend I’ve known forever but we never get to hang. I remember stumbling upon her Instagram feed and saying, “Damn she’s dope. I wanna work with her.” A few months later, I ended up doing a short Q&A on Sofia, and have decided to re-post it on my blog-with a few more Qs that never made it to the final cut.

Not into that Queen Bee nonsense, but more of creating with the power of a Queen… I’d like you to meet Sofia. Continue reading “Meet: Sofia Cope, Graphic Designer, Blogger, & Founder of Queencult and Viva La Manika”
