Freedom is a divine gift and we must seize it.
I met Thomas in Ecuador where he´s been living now for more than 10 years.
He is a shaman, tourist guide and a father of three.
What is the most important thing in your life, for what do you get up in the morning?
I get up to see what the new day brings, to meet again with myself and nature and to live in the moment as much as I can.
The most important thing for me is my freedom because it is a divine gift and we must seize it.
Who or what has inspired most you in your life and why?
Philippe Petit, the tightrope walker, because he is convinced that the wildest dreams can come true if we walk with love and heart.
What have you done that you’re most proud to have achieved?
I am very proud that I have some very deep and lasting friendships.
When you think of the word HOME, what immediately comes to mind?
Where I am is home.
If you could ask for one wish, what would it be?
My wish would be that my children have a good life and are never alone.
What advice would you give to your 20 year old self?
My advice would be to rely more on intuition, and to listen and take care of the body.
Meeting Thomas was a really special experience for me because he perfectly unites a deep spirituality with his hands-on lifestyle. He and his community made me realize how important listening to your inner voice really is.
