11th June 2021

So you’ve decided you want to embrace ancient Shamanic plant medicines by heading to an Ayahuasca retreat but don’t know where to start? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Deciding to take the plunge into your first Ayahuasca retreat is a pretty big deal, and deciding which retreat to go to is an even bigger one.

Meditation classes in a dedicated meditation center can be a good place to start if you’re finding the idea of meditating on your own for the first time a little daunting. I personally use Headspace and I love it. If you’ve already been initiated and are ready to try your first ever silent retreat, yaaaassssss!

My Guide to the Best Vegan Burgers NYC has to offer

best vegan burgers in new york and brooklyn

Vegan. Burgers. NYC. Enough said.

Time in New York is never enough to content me with all of the amazing food it has to offer. I was there on a cheeky mission to eat my way through a New York itinerary of all the Vegan Burgers and, although I reckon I did a semi-decent job following these New York tips (and I have the belly flab to prove it), I still couldn’t sample everything. You can now find the Impossible Burgers in several locations in NYC, but I did give that a miss. Here’s what I managed to stuff my face with while I was there doing some freelance work, however.
