Hello, I’m Asli. I’m a world citizen with 2 passports but I believe in a borderless world. I have lived in 3 continents and visited 31 countries so far. I’m also an environmentalist who’s obsessed with all living things, an avid world traveler, and a yogi. I’ve been on a quest to find my truth and remove the obstacles to connect with my divine purpose.


ā€œYesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.ā€



I was born in Turkey and spent most of my conscious life in New York City. While growing up, I took every opportunity to travel abroad and finally transported myself to the US as an exchange student and that’s how my adventures began.


I have started this blog to share my experiencesĀ with those who yearn to break free from the matrix and pass on everything I’ve learnt both in the worldly and spiritual sense.


I had all that I was supposed to want, a job with a good income, nice colleagues, beautiful apartment in Brooklyn, great friends, nice weekend escapes, perfect holidays. But I had a huge void inside me that none of these could satisfy.

My journey started when IĀ took a sabbatical from my shiny career in advertising in New York City in 2013. Ā I had an irresistible urge to break free to find freedom outside the corporate world.
By following my inner voice, I packed my backpackĀ and started traveling in and around South American jungles, the peaks of Andean mountains and the Himalayas, the beaches of Hawaii and Uruguay and the ashrams in India,Ā Bali and ThailandĀ discovering new cultures, experiences, and world views. MyĀ motive was to learn toĀ 
undo everything that I had learned in the modern society to fit in, to surrender to life and leave my comfort zone to experience a more authentic and fulfilling life. I didn’t realize at that time that I was embarking on a lifelong journey.Ā 

By leaving the things I was used to behind, inevitably a deep exploration into myself and a journey of self healing began. My eyes were wide open and I was guided step after step to the exact places I needed to be.
I met great teachers who guided me on my path. W
ith every step I took, my materialistic view of the world slowly but surely crumbled apart.


In the last few years of my life, I have been so fortunate to realize the dreams I’ve dreamt of. Now when I look back, I laugh at the rat race I have been a part of to gain more possession or a higher status. It is so liberating to finally see that we all exist in unity and there’s no success in anything unless we all succeed together.

I can tell my remarkable transformationĀ from the old Asli to this new me started with my introduction to Ayahuasca, the ancient plant medicine that connected me to my true-source as well as to everything around me.
Participating in my first ayahuasca ceremony in the woods in 2012 opened the doors of a new reality. I learntĀ valuable lessonsĀ about who I was and what my place was in the universe. Since I woke up from the dream, I’ve been constantly facing and taming my mind and learning to respond from my true source. You can read more about my experience with the plant medicineĀ here.

Jumping in joy up in the Himalayas, which was one of my dream places to visit šŸ™šŸ¼

I chose South East Asia as my home in 2015 and since then I’ve been educating myself as a good, mindful, and emphatic human being.Ā 

I met my partner Michele in 2017 in Thailand and we decided to continue this journey together. It was an amazing surprise to find each other as the universe brought us together at the same exact phases in our lives. We had both closed our homes in our respective cities (NYC and Milano) and we had nowhere or no one to go back to.

We both dedicated our lives to study traditional tantra in Thailand while also working on our self-growth and evolution, learning from each other and holding mirrors onto our shadow parts.

I no longer find satisfaction in talking about myself so I will leave this intro short like this šŸ™‚ Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions I can help you with. Or drop a comment below about your dreams and journey. I’d love to hear from you!


Thank you so much for visiting my site!

May you all be happy just as you are. Namaste šŸ™šŸ¼

  2. Hi Asli !!

    Much like Your Spirit……….Your site is absolutely Beautiful.. I’m helping to plan a wedding to be held in Columbia early January. Part of the couple’s itinerary/bucket list is an Ayahuasca retreat a couple of days before the wedding ceremony.

    Would You be able to put Me in touch with anyone there I can coordinate and confirm dates and bookings with to help facilitate this process ? Your Inspired way of Articulating Your thoughts & Journey is Magical.

    Looking forward to hearing from You šŸ™‚
