thank you for being

My name is Daniela and I was born on the volcanic island of Tenerife, Canary Islands.

I have been changing my base quite regularly for the past 12 years. Home is the all the places that have welcomed me so far. I am currently in the process of finding a longer-term “settlement” in mainland Spain.

I am the experiences, people and places that have coloured my past and also those that are yet to come and reshape me.

I am a human being in awe with our capacity to connect with others, to choose how to relate to our experience and to be present to our inner lives and to what surrounds us.

I live in gratitude with the gifts of the spiritual path.

I am in love with our ability to find awe in the tiniest things.

I am in love with the beauty of the natural world and the power of smiles.

I am someone eternally grateful for the rich unfolding of life experiences in front of me.

I am also someone in deep pain as I am aware of the amount of suffering and ignorance that I see within and around me, which as much as it deadens my heart, it feeds me with courage and motivation to take part in the transformation of our relationships with self, others and the living world.

I am someone committed to take part in the healing of the world which includes that of my own soul. A healing that I only see possible in communion with others, where we experience and understand our shared existence and become resources for each other, as well as channels of expression for those beings who don’t have a choice.

I am someone who strives to be present and listen deeply.

I am someone who believes in the power of practice and commitment.

I am someone who is learning the art of living, and would love to hear any learnings you may want to share in its regard.

my guiding poem


Trust creates space for stillness and presence,

Trust creates space for acceptance and peace,

Stay with what is,

Stay open to life,

Reopen your heart in every moment,

so that life energy can flow through you,

nourish you,

and love you.
