Hi, I'm Andy and I'm thrilled to be one of the co-founders of this website. I believe it's my mission in life to support people in living a happier and healthier life and to help raise the consciousness of the planet so that we can all move towards a more harmonious and sustainable lifestyle. I hope that Holistic Local goes some way in helping to achieve that.
I have many interests in life, but one of my biggest passions is spiritual development and learning about the nature of our reality, the universe, and of course ourselves! I'm an explorer and I see life as a big adventure.
I love exploring different spiritual philosophies but I'm generally drawn to more practical and experiential systems like shamanism and I've had some life-changing experiences using a plant teacher called Ayahuasca in South America.
I absolutely love travelling and exploring new places. Nothing gets me more excited than getting on a plane (ok, not so eco-friendly I know!) to some far off destination, although sadly I haven't had the time to do much travelling for quite awhile now, but I'll be doing more of that soon I hope.
I love South America, I've been 3 times now, once to Peru and twice to Brazil. Machu Picchu in Peru is simply one of the most awe-inspiring places I've ever visited and I'm hoping to go back some day soon.
I always love to hear from other members, so please don't hesitate to send me a note, or add me to your friends list!
Anyway, thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy using Holistic Local!
I recently just fulfilled a longheld dream of spending more time in Peru. I'm currently living in Cusco, high in the Andes of Peru, not far from Machu Picchu. I'm keeping a blog of my adventures at:

Quotes I Love: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesnít serve the world. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Itís not just in some of us; itís in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
