Sometimes our own home isn’t what we thought it was. Sometimes home is many places. Sometimes home can only be found in oneself.
When you move from one place to another, from one state of self to another, and you change, and move on again, chasing infinity in the streets and beaches, in the colors and smells of new beginnings, you notice that home can sometimes be found anywhere.
Other times, it disappears…
All that exterior memento of moving and changing, following and chasing, grasping and letting go, in the end, only leads to one place. The only place you can’t escape from.
This is my journey Home, a journey to the Self.
My name is Danah and I was born on July 22nd 1986 in a town where the desert meets the ocean in Saudi Arabia. Life had other plans and I ended up growing up in Madrid, Spain, and I was lucky enough to have been to over 40 countries since my first flight, when I was only two weeks old.
I still haven’t found ‘home’ except for in myself. For now until October 2019, you will find me with the loves of my life, my partner Hinton, and our puppy Saylor, in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain.
In this blog I share my thoughts and feelings, my interests, my fears, my experiences, in English and Spanish interchangeably, as my brain thinks and dreams in these two languages mostly (although I also speak French, and a little bit of Arabic and some times things get very interestingly confusing).
I share the journey to mySelf. My journey of becoming. Thank you for walking by my side.
Many people ask me what I do for a living.
Here are some of the “tags” life and society (and myself sometimes) use to describe what I “do”:
Yoga & Meditation Teacher
Movement & Breath Teacher
Dive Master & dive centre management
Hotel, resort & surf camp management
Air bnb Host
Eternal Student. This is my favourite one and the one I think most “defines” my personality.
Although all these tags are meaningless really when all I want to be is true to myself; be the best I can be for the people I love, for everyone really, for all beings, for our planet…
Thank you for being here and sharing this moment in time with me.
