Mariposas

Mariposa is the Spanish word for butterfly. There is hardly another word in any language that radiates as much beauty as the name of this wonderful creature: Schmetterling, papillon, farfalle, kipepeo, liblikas … all of these names emanate the wonder and joy which these masters of metamorphosis spark in us.

They stand for grace, beauty, lightness, freedom … and for the POWER OF TRANSFORMATION.

We humans are also masters of metamorphosis. We can change ourselves, transform. In each of us there is a butterfly just waiting to unfurl.

I look forward to accompanying you on this journey.
