Recently I have been looking into alternative reality and by this I don’t mean alternatives to reality, whatever that might mean, but alternatives to our, Western idea of reality. Not only have I learned a lot, I’ve also realised that the key to all the problems we are experiencing as humanity is not in anything else but in this huge chasm between the materialistic worldview and the native one.

I’ve taken upon myself to make some really difficult choices and write about spiritual reads for women.
