    I am inspired about the simplicity in Antoinette's life . . . something we miss because . . . we complicate life.. thinking that makes it more interesting when, infact it makes us miss what "life" really is.

    Antoinette confirmed that's what I'm looking for to move into the countryside, in nature, with my husband and dog - the video relates to me so much. I am very grateful. Thank you. Namaste.


    Amazing video, amazing story :)

    I really lobe this woman. She is very wise and authentic. I relate to her because since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to just live freely in nature, and at some points in my life I was lucky enough to be able to. Most importantly I love what she says about being content and loving yourself. Very critical in a world of mass media that is constantly telling you that you are not enough. Do not look at your television, nor magazines. Look within.

    If everyone starts living like her then the forest itself will soon become a city and so on. Utilizing the serenity one should still the restless mind within for therein lies true peace and joy of the heart. Not in external possessions

    Antoinette could have written the book on mindful self-compassion. She is an inspiring woman on so many levels. And how beautiful she is!

  • Ratnakara

    I would shave my head if she would let me live on her compound! I understand the essence of her insights though it is challenging to maintain the serenity in our hyper-active world! I am grateful that there are people like Antoinette sharing her Earth-inspired wisdom. And I love her herd of cats!
