“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself over and over again.”
— Joseph Campbell

Since getting my Firewalk Instructor Certification, meditation has become a part of my life.

What started as 3 times a week with a tiny spot in my room, is now a daily practice with its own room.

But more than that, what became a specific time that gave me a short time of awareness, acceptance and peace...

Has extended far outside my time on the cushion, to be a huge part of every waking second.

Without a doubt, meditation and Buddhist concepts are a huge component of my life.

I know you may be wondering, "What's up with the meditation speech?".

Well, it is meditation that led me to choosing this year's "Once in a Lifetime Trip, Once  a Year" trip that I wanted to share with y'all.

In less then 2 weeks I'll be heading solo over to Bangalore, India, to deepen my practice and invest a bit more into one of my greatest head and heart.

My mind and soul.



  1. amazing! meditation is life changing and brings so much calmness to life!

  2. Hi Taryn. This sounds like a very cool trip! Definitely. I hope its all you dream of, and that it also holds wonderful new discoveries as well.

  3. How lovely for you to be able to travel, hope you can share the journey with us. I, too, have turned towards mediation and Buddhism in these last few years, helps me to focus and get through each day. Safe travels.

  4. Tarayn,
    What a wonderful and beautiful journey. I hope that it gives you new opportunities to practice.

    I also am buddhist. Became one before my husband became ill. I found the practice of meditation has given me so much peace and helped me survive the terror of my husbands brain tumour diagnosis.
    I also believe it helped me to stay calm and be present for him.

    What is so strange reading about your trip to India is that my husband and I had a trip booked to India for the fall, the year he was diagnosed. We had to cancel.

    I still have it in my mind. Thank you for sharing.

    Be well.

  5. Hi Taryn,

    I am excited about your travels. I look forward to you sharing and teaching us when you return.

    Best wishes.


  6. Best wishes to you on this journey of yours, all of it! As you can share with us will be great to do, look forward to reading!
