Inspiration: The Trees & We
“But down deep, at the molecular heart of life, the trees and we are essentially identical.” -Carl Sagan
Bianca of Conscious Living TV is one of those golden souls who reminds us that taking moments for ourselves can only positively influence what we bring to the world. Here, she shares some insight with us on how yoga brings her the roots from which she continues to grow //
“As much as I love fashion and enjoying the good life, for me, a material-focused life without spirituality, yoga and meditation is empty and sad. As a result, on top of my work in TV and media, I do a lot of work in the metaphysical realm, keeping me with one foot in both worlds–spiritual and material. I’m a certified level 2 reiki master (energy healer) and meditate and practice yoga daily (for about ten years and 4 as a teacher). I love wearing and working with natural stones and crystals for beauty and energetic healings. This (mostly unseen) world is the primary foundation for my passion and conscience for ethical fashion, and the wellspring for all of my creative work in the (outer) world.”

Kestrel is a globetrotter with small-town Wisconsin spirit. She has lived in Chile, London, Madrid & New York, soaking up and absorbing every moment of fashion and difference along the way. She has worked with People Tree, Global Action Through Fashion, The GreenShows, FashionMeGreen, Fashioning Change, Ecouterre, Inhabitat & EcoSalon. She loves words & garments, and reorganizing them both. For Kestrel, fashion is her favorite way to share stories. Her most recent endeavor, AWEAR, is a style-driven project intended to help inspire us to think about where our clothes are made, what they are made of, and who makes them.
