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

The Organic Promise

Organic, it's right there in our name, sandwiched between Synergy and Clothing. Organic is at the core of who we are as a company. It is a promise that we make to our customers and fans. There are so many social and environmental reasons to wear organic clothing, and we are on a mission to spread the word!

We are humbled on a daily basis by the women who wear Synergy Organic Clothing while doing incredible things. This post is the first in a series of guest blog spots written by inspirational women who kick butt while wearing Synergy!

Hi everyone! My name is Katie Jo and I'm a climbing instructor from Southern California. This past Saturday I reached a pretty big climbing milestone by successfully climbing a 5.13a sport route, a difficult achievement I never imagined would be possible when I first began climbing five years ago. The only things I could picture then, were my feet slipping, the rock crumbling, and myself, tumbling into open space. Though I grew up with a mountaineering father and always felt drawn to the mountains and crags, I was also terrified of heights! My first time sport climbing outside, I was so scared of falling that I cried at every bolt!

But along with the opportunities to be outdoors and the supportive community it provides, this same fear, is one of the big reasons why I have come to love climbing so much. It's a sport that never ceases to challenge, both mentally and physically. Climbing presents constant obstacles, teaching you to focus, trust in yourself, think of creative solutions, and be completely in the moment in order to overcome.  Along the way, the rock will crumble, your feet will slip, and you'll take plenty of falls, but I have come to realize that these are only opportunities to get back up, to work a little harder, to reach a little further.  And when you reach the anchors of your most difficult route, it's pretty incredible to realize that you are capable of things you never imagined!

Climbing has made such a positive impact on my life and for this reason I love sharing it with others.  I'm very grateful to Synergy for their support and for giving me an opportunity to write about this amazing sport. If anybody out there has any questions about climbing, please reach out via IG (@katiejo.myers) or my blog (katiejo.wildc.net). I would love to hear from you!blog 4
