Hi, my name is Teresa and I live on an island in the middle of the Salish sea with my husband and three daughters.

I grew up in Minneapolis, MN, spent one year of college in Bronxville, NY and the final three years of college in Walla Walla, Washington.

Directly after college graduation, craving a more connected and embodied way of being, I headed off to a Zen Buddhist monastery in Japan. I ended up staying nearly 5 years, meeting my future husband there, and conceiving our first child there–that was our cue to leave the monastery and graduate on to the next stage of our spiritual journey: parenthood!

This blog is a place for me to reflect on that journey: the intertwining of spirituality, parenthood, unschooling, and Self-discovery.

Thanks so much for dropping by and saying hello!
