Your Guide to Finding Alchemy in Escape
The beautiful thing about escape is that we notice the nuances and pay attention to the mundane. The way the steam rises from a mug of tea in Japan. The way honking cars become strangely charming in NYC. The comforting support you feel in your home when you stop to be still within its walls.
Life becomes sweeter because we remember what it’s like to be fully alive, aware, and open. We escape to breathe a bit easier, to step outside of our routines, to find space, and perspective.
So what’s the secret to making the magic last? Using the distance to come closer to ourselves.
The Reset Ritual is all about cultivating a deeper connection with ourselves in the world while chasing curiosity every day. It’s for the growth-minded and the globally inspired. The travelers. The seekers. The retreaters. It’s for those who want to move and be moved. Welcome home.
Whether you’re itching to wander, or seeking stillness, our mission is to help you cultivate your inner world while exploring your outer world through:
Goodbye comfort zones, hello curiosity.
When why comes before what.
Self-discovery meets outward discovery.
Tuning in to find true north.
Hi, I’m Katie
I sailed away from a conventional life. Literally.
Fresh out of college and primed to pursue an editorial career, I veered from my path to take a gig as a dancer on cruise ships.
My experiences abroad were immediate and exhilarating in all the wonderful ways travel moves people: perspective-broadening, heart-breaking, mind-expanding. My eyes were cracked open.
But once back in “real life,” my fresh view of the world made me feel more lost than ever. I’d been shown new roads but was left without a map.
It wasn’t until after studying holistic wellness and diving into seas of personal development books that I realized what was missing from my first travel experiences: purposeful reflection, self-care, groundedness, and mindfulness. In other words, a sense of being at home with myself in the world.
My passport’s been stamped many more times since my cruise ship days. Travel is now ingrained into my being.
But having seen 60+ countries so far, I know it’s not about the number of borders you cross, it’s the mindset you carry with you that leads to the most personal transformation.
These days I embrace my explorer side and my homebody side in equal measure. I seek ways to nest abroad and chase curiosity every day. And one thing I know for sure: We can always forge deeper roots by spreading our wings.
