can’t believe we’ve had two trips around the sun since this day 🔅 I read a quote the other day that has helped me put some past things into perspective (so obv I had to share): “you can’t skip chapters, that’s not how life works. you have to read every line, meet every character. you won’t enjoy all of it, hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. you will read things you don’t want to read, you will have moments when you don’t want the pages to end - but you have to keep going... you have to live your story”

Did you know that bees collect honey from flowers in such a way as to do the least damage or destruction to them; that bees leave the flowers whole, undamaged and fresh, just as they found them? 🐝 ———— Could you imagine how we, through mindfulness, can exemplify the magic of bees, making honey from our actions and leaving traces of our buzzing songs in our words for ourselves + the world with the least amount of harm? Nature is such a powerful tool reminding us to go within and tend to our ways in which we are harming with the words we use, the thoughts we have and the patterns we keep holding onto in suffering 🎶 ———— Yoga practice is a wise + ancient lineage providing an opportunity to pause + be mindful, interrupting the patterns, so as to offer a moment to inquire: “is this loving, is this kind?” We are not bees, we are humans. We have the potential to shift ourselves at any moment. We thank the bees for their magic + the sweet nectar they share + the reminder 🙏🏽 ——— MONDAYS HONEY 🍯 8a All Levels w/ @yogitriathlete 9:30a Vinyasa 75 w/ @yogitriathlete 12p All Levels w/ @conch_shell21 4p Gentle + Meditation w/ @yogitriathlete 5:30p Alignment w/ @wendygarafalo 7:15p Yinki w/ @liz_life_as_art ✨ ——— ...and coming up this Friday to explore mindfulness more: Mindfulness For Life special offering at 6p w/ @kristina.akuna ($20/$25 day of) . . . . . . #wisdomofthebees #beepresent #ahimsa #yogapractice #ethereal #mindfulness #california #carlsbad

I relate a lot to sunflowers because they grow up learning to chase the sun + need a lot of space to reach their full potential 🌻✨ #thatsme

Your mind is the flowers, your thoughts are the seeds. You can grow flowers, or you can grow weeds. Choose your thoughts wisely🌼.

wait ... is donut a carb? 🍩 k all jokes aside I’ve posted a new video, sharing my #pcos story (link in bio). It’s a lil emotional but bare with me, I think it’s SO important to spread the word - considering 50% of women with pcos are still UNDIAGNOSED (and probably more because how is this a real fact). I’ll be posting regular videos in my pcos series ✨ thanks for listening #pcosawareness

This morning I was up, sleepy, rushed through a workout, through getting ready, and stressfully sprinted to the Uber to get to the airport behind schedule. It was when I was waiting (at the longest light in the history of histories) that I realized my driver could also feel my frantic, stressed, chaotic energy. Now how is that helping me or the people around me? It's not. I'm going to get there when I get there. The lines are what they are. So I took a minute, checked on my breathing, and tried to focus on all the tools I use in meditation. I want to TRY to be responsible for my energy, to open up to the present, and to bring everyone around me along for the ride. Good vibes only. #hartforhealth #beepresent #wellnesscoach #wellness #energy #ownyourenergy

tall enough for rides since ‘99 🎟 (still afraid of heights though)... . for those of you who are being randomly bombarded with my new health + fitness content (I apologize), I just want to explain myself. I was diagnosed with PCOS 7 months ago, and it’s been a bumpy ride since then. After many months of blood tests, doctor visits, research, frustration + “why me” self-pity sessions, I’ve had enough. I am not willing to settle, to feel as if “it could be worse” or to accept my fate + begin taking prescription medications for the rest of my life. Anyone who knows me would know that I’m way too feisty for that 🙅🏽‍♀️ so - I’ve taken it upon myself to put together a new lifestyle plan, based on all of the information I have found regarding women with pcos. I’m not posting these videos for likes or attention, but instead to bring attention to the importance of health promotion + illness prevention. Your health starts with YOU - in your own home, and it’s your own responsibility. Our bodies will tell us exactly what we need, if you’re willing to listen closely. SO ANYWAY, if you’re still here (thank you) and I hope you’ll join me on this journey - 4 Weeks to Better Health. I’ll be posting on IGTV, YouTube + kassyopeia.com 🌿 my hope is to one day help other people reach their full health + wellness potential. ok stop reading this + go enjoy your beautiful day ✨

It's one of my favourite pastimes watching the Bees in the Garden. They have a job to do and they get it done... There's a lesson in there somewhere, what do you think?

We went to centre island today! Growing up, my family often came here to swim, look at the fountains, go for a picnic and spend the day out of the city. It brought back so many fun memories for me and was so much fun to share with the boys! . . . . . #makememories #beepresent #toronto #centreisland #centreville #boys #brothers #pokeyandchuck #bestfriends #collectmemoriesnotthings #nostalgia #funday #familyday #takethesubway #adventuresincanada #exploretoronto #ontario #travelfam #travelfamily #kidswhotravel #instagood #happy #goexplore

This guy... we love us some @benstrahan...He takes ownership of information and executes on it like few we have ever seen. It’s his constant commitment to seeing what’s possible in his human experience that inspires our work and reminds us why we do what we do.. It’s for his mind, heart and soul that we are proud to have him as a mentor in our Unveil Your Wellness Program and an ambassador for Bee The Wellness. Ben is also an amazing dad, firefighter and husband and with all he has going on we were extra happy to have him at Bee - Fest this year as we know the rest of his summer is going to be pretty intense. So we are throwing some love his way today and every day! Keep bee-ing you because you are one awesome dude.. #beeloving #beepresent #beesinthewild #beefest2018 #goodpeople #tribe #hive #community #connection #commitment

Hope you all had a beautiful weekend and took some time for yourself to do the things that make you happy. Don't forget that anyone worth your time knows you are special. So don't forget your value as a person. It can be so easy to spread yourself thin and try to take everything on at once, but learning to listen to your body is the key to making the best choices for your own happy and humble life. . . . I've been learning over the last while to try and be in the moment and regulate my emotions. In doing this I have come to really love mother nature; I mean how gorgeous is this sunset tonight?! bee humble, bee you. 🌞🐝💗

Our favorite super ninja @angelodc1 showing us how it’s done! Angelo is truly such a beautiful compliment to our tribe and we are always so grateful when we get to spend time with him. Here is connecting us to the universe, our heart chakras and each other. I’m pretty sure he made the sun come out that day on the north coast for our group.. Because when in his presence the world just glows a little brighter. ☀️ #beefest2018 #beepresent #beeloving #hive #connection #boutiquewellnessfestival #wellnessretreat #paleolifestyle #luxuryretreat #northcoast #norcal * * * * * * * #retreatlife #btwretreats #adventureretreat #experiencemakers #travelbugs #beeadventurous #traveltribe #welltraveled #travelawesome #welivetoexplore #ucanoutdoor #explorerworld #earthnow #travelpicsdaily ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

from Be Present: Reflections On The Way: Living A Resonant Life: “Living a resonant life has everything to do with surrendering to a larger universal vibration. It can help us learn to let go of the control we exert over our lives. We discover a new mode of working consciously in the world. In addition, we experience harmony in all that we do. Miracles seem to come out of nowhere and life gets a lot more magical. “ 🐝 🐝 🐝 🌝 🌝 🌝 I thought this quote was indicative of the mood and process I am undergoing. The eclipse and full moon along with Mars alignment feels particularly strong. 🌝 🌝 I am feeling the magic even though it feels like tidal waves of emotion and landing in the place of accepting what is. Blessings on this full moon’s influence. #fullmoon #lunareclipse #bepresent #spiritualliving #resonance #authorsofinstagram #writersofinstagram #awarenessschool #consciousness #miracles #beepresent #emotionalintelligence

No #beefest2018 tribute is complete without paying our sincere gratitude to @beethewellness. Adam and Vanessa go above and beyond. Vanessa is masterfully involved in every detail...from a string trio playing in the redwoods, to an amazing beach performance by @ilovekylewilliams , to a silent disco on our final evening. _ Thank you both from the bottom of our hearts. We were overcome with joy and peace and felt so much love from everyone the whole weekend. You are doing what you are meant to do, and for that we are grateful. Thank you for welcoming us so kindly into your hive. We couldn't bee happier to have been there 🐝 _ #lifestartswithfood #mikeapproved #beefest2018 #beethewellness #findyourtribe #beehappy #beepresent #bethankful #gratitude #somanydetails #adventure #paleo #paleoretreat #movement #silentdisco #fairies #redwoods

It's a crazy thing to meet someone that you feel like you've known forever. @thelizbits is our new bff. Although I didn't get any pics with her, she let Kim borrow this sweet wig and clearly these two had some amazing conversation. I'm pretty sure she needs to rock pink hair all the time! We also ate A LOT of #smashmallows together and loved life. _ #lifestartswithfood #mikeapproved #beefest2018 #lizbits #newbestfriend #retreatlife #paleoretreat #makeconnections #paleosmores #smashmallow #fairies #beepresent #primalkitchen #primal #primalblueprint

Yesterday was a great day. I started out in the morning with an 8km run. Then came home and went straight to work in my yard and garden. My husband had started to do a major clean of the garage and storage shed so I helped a bit but decided to stay out of his way and let him do his thing. By about 2:00 I was pretty hot and sticky and decided that it was pool time. As I started to get settled in my floating chair I noticed this bee buzzing around me. I tried to shoo it away but it was relentless. So, instead I decided to just sit there and observe it. It would settle on the water for few seconds then it would take off, fly over our fence into the neighbours yard. It would be gone for maybe a minute then it would fly back to the pool for a short dip, then fly off again. It repeated this over and over. It was quite fascinating actually. I was happy that I decided to just sit and watch this busy bee instead of shooing it away in fear. It was great company and provided me an opportunity to just live in the moment and marvel at Mother Nature. Thank you busy bee! ❤🐝 . . #savethebees

The biggest part of deeper awareness and expanded consciousness is sharing life with a partner. We can separate ourselves away from relationship when seeking stillness and enlightenment. 🐝 🐝 🐝 To accept someone else fully we have to let go of what we wish could be, as well as holding some picture of a perfect relationship. We will be forever dissatisfied with a partner who cannot meet that expectation. 🐝 🐝 🐝 If we accept the person in front of us, we open the doorway to great intimacy and love. 🐝 🐝 🐝 #marriage #spiritualliving #sacredpartnership #teachingawareness #awarenessschool #mystic #consciousness #beepresent #bepresent

We went into the woods and I asked everyone to leave something behind that no longer serves them. Give it to the trees and the forest. Release it to the wisdom of Mother Earth and allow yourself to be free from what blinds you from your authenticity. Allow yourself to make room for something that helps you emerge your most brilliant self.. **** Set it down and rise up. ***** Later Steph shared with me that was a powerful moment for her and much later our amazing photographer presented me with this photo of her in that moment. This synchronicity was just more evidence that what we are doing is important. Connecting people to each other, the planet and their inner wisdom while having a ton of fun is a mission we intend to continue until our end days. Our trust in this event and our faith in what we are creating with Bee - Fest couldn’t be stronger right now. From randomly capturing these powerful moments on camera to the sun coming out on the north coast in July, this event has been nothing short of magic for us.. and I think for a few others as well;) photo credit @domgill1980 #beefest2018 #beepresent #redwoodforest #mothernature #authenticself #innerwisdom #trust

so I haven’t posted in over a month, and to be honest I’ve felt really uninspired - mentally and physically. I’ve been spending most of my time working, or quality time with friends + family 🌻 honestly, I’m not exactly where I ‘want’ to be - creatively, financially, or spiritually. but I do believe I’m right where I should be. raise your hand if you’ve ever felt guilt/shame/anxiety from sitting still, or feeling like you’re ‘not doing enough’ 🙋🏽‍♀️ I’ve come to know this feeling and I’m learning over time to be at peace with stillness. not just in the moment - but in life itself. sometimes there’s a greater need to be dormant than to keep pushing forward - a time to pause, regroup + regenerate. it’s within this inertia that we grow into a greater version of ourselves 🌲 which reminds me - have you ever been angry at a tree for losing its leaves & lying still during winter? or do you appreciate the cycle it must complete in order to grow stronger & more beautiful in the spring? #justathought

When we first started dating, I would get annoyed at the pace in which she moved through life. I was always on my way somewhere, focused on the end goal, not wanting to be one minute late. Ten years later, I find myself stopping to stand in awe of the tiny mushroom growing on the tree and the little, smooth rock that is perfectly shaped in the dirt or the bird singing in the tree. I suppose that’s what love and truly understanding someone does to you — it changes you — helps you to evolve into a stronger, better version of you. 📷: @raylene_rose #latergram #beepresent #mudfalls #twobrides #lgbtqlove

Self-observation has been the most important yet the most difficult aspect of The Work to teach. It is an end goal, the gateway to freedom and the vehicle for having choice in our lives.

Rockin’ the Carhartt’s. Tomorrow starts the first Awareness School weeklong retreat on our new property on San Juan Island. After that I fly solo in the woods for a while, recalibrating and getting a total nature immersion. 🐝 🐝 🐝 My glamping tent arrived in the mail today just in time and we are building a “permaculture style” outdoor kitchen this week. 🐝 🐝 🐝 Later this summer we consult with the Bullocks and their planning firm. This is actually happening. 🐝 🐝 🐝 Been working toward this moment for many years. 🐝 🐝 🐝 The Awareness School looks forward to hosting you. #meditation #spiritualliving #spiritualretreat #permaculture #sanjuanidlands #presence #bepresent #beepresent #awarenessschool #backtonature #mysticism #shankara #consciousness #answersforthesefuckeduptimes

“In the midst of the madness, don’t forget to ride the wave..” 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊This was my mantra this morning to get up at 6am to get my meditation in and then get my butt in the water. ☀️ 🙏 🌊 Its been a hell of a week as we have had a sudden loss in the family when Adams dads wife Kim passed away last week. 😞 While Adam is in Costa Rica getting things sorted I am holding down the fort preparing for #beefest2018 and feeling acutely aware how unpredictable life can be.. Life is too short and too long to not enjoy.. and yes that means every damn day! So it is with my sweet mother in laws passing that she gives me the gift to cherish today. I am doing that in her honor and will continue to live my life to the fullest always thinking of those who are no longer able to. So find a few moments here and there to breathe, move, laugh and enjoy. It doesn’t mean you don’t work hard and boss the hell of life but you remember the sweet stuff too.. Kim was the real version of a Malibu beach surfer girl so I know she would approve of me getting out there and getting it done! So this ones for you Kimmy! I know you’re surfing into heaven and riding the big one! I hope we will meet again in the great beyond.. For the rest of you, cherish today because you can! #livelifehappy #carpediem #beepresent #beachgirlsforlife #lifestooshort #liveadventurously #liveauthentic

Bee here 🐝 N O W 🐝 . We've all heard it a million times. Be present. Live in the now. It's easier said than done. For me, I've gotten to a place where I can be here now(ish) 😉 in my meditation, but I'm also trying to bring that presence into all parts of my life. Yesterday on my afternoon walk, I have this stretch of sorta busy street that I usually avoid. But I went that way and noticed the side of the street was FILLED with these flowers. I think they're known as bachelor's buttons. The whole block was covered in them. White, pink, purple 🌺 And the bees! 🐝🐝🐝🐝🐝 they were happily buzz buzz buzzing around 🐝 And it made me very happy that I walked that way and stopped to beeeee present ✨👁✨ . #bepresent #bee #beepresent #wildflowers #observations #meditateeverydamnday #spiritualawakening #spiritualjourney #spiritualwisdom #wearetheoneswehavebeenwaitingfor #rememberyourlight #theuniversehasyourback #afternoonwalk #beherenow #presence

It was a big day on Friday! Adam wrapped up 22 years in the fire service and entered the ranks of full time entrepreneur. 🔥 ****** It’s a big shift but one we’ve been working towards for many years and it feels exciting to see what the future holds for us now. ******** It takes something to make big changes in life. It’s so easy to keep doing the things the way they have always been done. Even if you know it’s time for a change, that the life you’re living no longer quite fits. ****** But it takes getting really uncomfortable at times to take that next step into the next phase of life. So it’s with great excitement, trepidation and big ball of “oh shit here we go” that we move into this next phase of life. It seems kind of perfect that it’s lining up just before our biggest celebration yet, Bee - Fest! So there’s one more reason to celebrate with you all and we are excited to get to do that in just a few weeks! So here we go! .....Wish us luck and if you feel like it, throw @fitfordutyorg your best emoji congratulations! 🍾🎈🎉🎊 #lifechanges #newchapter #beeadventurous #beepresent #beethewellness
