We donate a portion of all Alchemy Tours trips to Charity Water. We encourage our clients to continue making donations long beyond their time with us comes to an end. Everything we do is influenced by our appreciation of the water element. Jacob and I met after crossing the Atlantic ocean and today we choose to live on purpose by the Pacific ocean in Seattle. Our astrology also unites us as Jacob’s sign is Pisces (The Two Fish) and my sign is Cancer (The Crab). A great day for us means time spent near the water whether we are riding our bikes, enjoying the beach or kayaking. I also credit Jacob for inspiring me to stay hydrated more than ever. And every time I take an easy drink of water I am reminded of what a blessing it is. A blessing that a BILLION people don’t have.
Our friends at Charity Water have educated us to know that “Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Children are especially vulnerable, as their bodies aren’t strong enough to fight diarrhea, dysentery and other illnesses.
90% of the 30,000 deaths that occur every week from unsafe water and unhygienic living conditions are of children under five years old. Many of these diseases are preventable. The UN predicts that one tenth of the global disease burden can be prevented simply by improving water supply and sanitation. The great news is that we can all make a difference.” Every $1 invested in improved water access and sanitation yields an average of $12 in economic returns. Even just $20 can provide water for a person. To learn more take a few minutes to watch this video.
Water Changes Everything
And please support me in my year as a lululemon ambassador (see the manifesto below, water is #1 on their list too) as the events I offer for FREE as my karma yoga will always be an opportunity to donate to Charity Water. Help us collect $5,000 for a well that can change the lives of many children and leave a lasting legacy. Love yourself, love your day, love your life!

the lululemon manifesto
Drink FRESH water and as much water as you can. Water flushes unwanted toxins from your body and keeps your brain sharp.
A daily hit of athletic-induced endorphins gives you the power to make better decisions, helps you be at peace with yourself, and offsets stress.
Do one thing a day that scares you.
Listen, listen, listen, and then ask strategic questions.
Write down your short and long-term GOALS four times a year. Two personal, two business and two health goals for the next 1, 5 and 10 years. Goal setting triggers your subconscious computer.
Life is full of setbacks. Success is determined by how you handle setbacks.
Your outlook on life is a direct reflection of how much you like yourself.
That which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least.
Stress is related to 99% of all illness.
Jealousy works the opposite way you want it to.
The world is changing at such a rapid rate that waiting to implement changes will leave you 2 steps behind. DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW, DO IT NOW!
Friends are more important than money.
Breathe deeply and appreciate the moment. Living in the moment could be the meaning of life.
Take various vitamins. You never know what small mineral can eliminate the bottleneck to everlasting health.
Don’t trust that an old age pension will be sufficient.
Visualize your eventual demise. It can have an amazing effect on how you live for the moment.
The conscious brain can only hold one thought at a time. Choose a positive thought.
Live near the ocean and inhale the pure salt air that flows over the water, Vancouver will do nicely.
Observe a plant before and after watering and relate these benefits to your body and brain.
Practice yoga so you can remain active in physical sports as you age.
Dance, sing, floss and travel.
Children are the orgasm of life. Just like you did not know what an orgasm was before you had one, nature does not let you know how great children are until you have them.
Successful people replace the words ‘wish’, ‘should’ and ‘try’, with ‘I will’.
Creativity is maximized when you’re living in the moment.
Nature wants us to be mediocre because we have a greater chance to survive and reproduce. Mediocre is as close to the bottom as it is to the top, and will give you a lousy life.
lululemon athletica creates components for people to live longer, healthier and more fun lives. If we can produce products to keep people active and stress-free, we believe the world will become a much better place.
Do not use cleaning chemicals on your kitchen counters. Someone will inevitably make a sandwich on your counter.
SWEAT once a day to regenerate your skin.
Communication is COMPLICATED. We are all raised in a different family with slightly different definitions of every word. An agreement is an agreement only if each party knows the conditions for satisfaction and a time is set for satisfaction to occur.
What we do to the earth we do to ourselves.
The pursuit of happiness is the source of all unhappiness.
