Wandering Sol Sessions- Sarah Hansen @the.beach.folk
This series is called SOL Sessions. What is it that you do that makes your SOL sing?
Adventure. Prior to having my children I travelled the world a few times over. Barefoot and usually in the ocean, I lived the simple life gaining experiences. I appreciate fresh air and crisp clean water and now that I can introduce my babies to the same lifestyle. We are more grounded now with the changing world and I am learning how to become rooted but still escaping out into the wild as often as I can - my SOL can continue its song.
Tell us about your career path. How did you get to where you are now?
My path was (and will always be) adventure. As I travelled I worked as a scuba diver then transitioned to eco active holidays management and settled down to live on a small Caribbean island teaching kitesurfing. Life happened and I had to move home back to Canada. Two years ago we decided to relocate to Australia and now I'm a stay home mama to three beautiful children.
What does living a Soulful life mean, or look like to you?
Simplicity. Accumulation of life experiences. Surrounding myself with quality humans and finding myself on a gorgeous beach to soak in the ocean air. Life is too short to not find purpose or passion. Have every action or interaction have a purpose or a conscious beauty.
How important is creativity in your daily life?
Very important. Especially as a mother. My time for just myself is limited so having a creative outlet to still feel my individualism is extremely important. Idle hands are nowhere to be found and my DIY bins are full of supplies.
Do you have any daily routines that nurture your soul?
A Shower. Negative ions are produced by the movement of water and being in the shower gives me a clear head and replenishes my ideas bank. Having a daily shower is calming and often I close my eyes and pretend I'm still standing under that waterfall at the end of the Kalalau trail on Kauai.
Finally, tell us about an upcoming project you’re passionate about?
We are purchasing a fair bit of land to build our dream home and live off grid. Always been a dream of mine and now we are there and its happening, Providing our children with the best possible lifestyle ( in our opinion) to always wander and live wild.
