Atma in Suesca, Colombia

Shortly after arriving in Colombia, I decided to spend a couple of days with my Aunt and her family at their farm in Suesca (about an hour and a half from the city). It’s a beautiful valley full of trails, rolling hills, and rock climbing. Plus, the silence of being aware from the city is refreshing.

The farm is called Atma, which means “soul” in Hindi. It was fitting because I felt myself doing a lot of soul searching while I was there. (It was so peaceful and calm that it was impossible NOT to soul search!).

Their home is the epitome of farm to table. Much of their food is grown right there on the farm or milked from their cows, or baked in their kitchens. Lettuce, fruits, honey, eggs, cheese, ghee, bread… you name it, they probably make it.

One night, we made fresh cheese (with milk from their cows) with home grown lavender, freshly baked bread, and honey they cultivate from their Africanized beehives. It was a simple and beautiful dinner, made even more beautiful by the fact that it was made at home with lots of love. #appreciate

My days were spent riding, hiking, meditating, doing yoga, or hanging out with my cousins in a beautiful place.

Isn’t that a spectacular sunset? How do you get away?
