It was very sweet to be back in Pushkar after 7 years. It felt like a pilgrimage for me, back to a place I know so well, where I spent so much time growing up and into myself as a devotee of life and of the sacred, and learning to lay the foundation of my business. It was my training ground in business , buying in the markets, working with tailors, and learning how to design clothing, a business school and fashion design school all rolled into a beautiful gypsy village in the desert of Rajasthan. It captivated my young adventurous freedom loving spirit. There I learned the art of international commerce and about a sacred and simple life that exists in the quiet beauty of the village of Pushkar, with the holy waters of the lake as the crown jewel of the desert, where I went for my daily morning oblations and prayers, and brought fresh flower garlands and ghee to my favorite deities. It is the kind of place where when you return everyone stops you on the street and greets you and welcomes you in for chai and remembers exactly how long it has been since you were there last. It is a village I came to every year for 15 years, where I formed deep friendships and connections to the people, the culture, the deities, and spirits of the lake and village. " Sometimes we visit your country and live in your home..."

Going back there this time, was like looking at a reflection of myself in the lake. I could see and feel the parts of myself that were exactly the same as when I first arrived at age 21, and I could see how much courage it took for me to travel to India year after year in my twenties and thirties. I could now see the parts of myself that have changed and grown, and I could feel how so much of my dharma now is about being a mama to my beautiful sweet children and a wife and partner to my amazing husband Henry Schwab who is at home holding down the home front. It is taking a lot of stamina and endurance for both of us to be doing what we are doing now, and I am so grateful that we chose this path, that this path chose us, and that we chose each other. With my pilgrimage back to Pushkar complete , I am now ready to go back to work in Delhi and soon on to Kathmandu to keep the wheels of Synergy rolling. ‪#‎confessionsofawanderlustjunkygypsymama

ExpoWest 2015: 'BEAUTY IN ALL BEINGS' FASHION SHOW

One of our favorite trade shows every year is Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, CA. There's always so much excitement and buzz in the air. I think it has to do with being surrounded by so many like-minded companies all working towards creating a positive, mindful, and lasting impact through our products and services. This year however, was even more special for us than years past. Whole Foods Market in partnership with thinkThin put on the most amazing fashion show and we were lucky enough to be a part of it! The fashion show was appropriately titled 'Beauty In All Beings' and benefitted the Whole Planet Foundation. The money raised will go toward micro-lending programs for businesses in 63 countries. With the support of many organic and eco-minded companies, the show was a success raising $100,000 and it was a night to remember for all in attendance!   [caption id="attachment_1526" align="alignnone" width="600"]IMG_1846 Hexagon Collection Lucy Dress in Coral walking down the runway.

You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don't.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly.
-Rumi
