Steamy August is filling us with literal steam, while Finland is turning into a jungle with these weathers. For our co-creator Catarina Böckerman this feels home, like she’s back at the jungle where her heart calls her over and over again. This chica is filled with lust over exploring this planet. Her passion drips over her when she talks about all things her heart is filled with. Let me introduce you to our girl behind the magic August lion.
What makes your heart beat like a drum?
To be able to call this earth my home, our home. To share and inspire others. Remind people of their divinity, their powers, their magic. That gives me shivers, to remind, cause we all got the jazz in us, if we just recognise and honour it.
Your favourite unwinding afternoon?
Ohh, day dreaming with my soul tribe. To just let our hearts speak out, speak loud, be heard. To watch the stars, and wonder how magical this all is, how we are literally made out of stardust and to remind myself of that, always calms me down. Living from that space, well that space has only love and trust with zero stress involved.
Best thing of being a female?
All! I love females, love being one. Females are just pure magic. We are a true reflection of the mother earth. Of her cycles, from winter to autumn to spring and to summer. When we remember that we are cyclic -that this earth is cyclic, and truly live honouring all the different cycles, well that’s fairy land right there.
A little bird told me that you’re yoga teacher now, how that happened?
Well, Bali called me again. This time for the teacher training. I felt like that’s what my heart wished for. So after crazy money saving hassle in Finland, I was back at the jungle. That month was just pure bliss, with so much emotions running though my veins, so much depth and remembrance occurred to me. Best experience of my life.
How you honour the wild in you?
Well my dear, this one has been on my active challenge list lately. As I let go of binge alcohol drinking and the parties I used to went to, I thought that would do it, that the wild side in me would just calm down. Well that wasn’t as simple as I thought it to be. We all have different levels of wilderness is us. Back in the days, partying was the way I let her loose, crazy and wild. But ever since I let that go, the wild in me has been craving for tension, for action, for wilderness. I understood how important it is to honour all the sides in us. So dancing has become one of my priorities. I also let the wild loose with days where I have no plans, I just let her take me to places. I’m still figuring this one out thought, but lately she’s been taken care of, the wild in me. With singing, dancing, wine classes, maca, soulful humans, soulful music, days without rules. I can feel her presence again.
