Life is a mysterious journey. When people embrace the unpredictable nature of life, they walk with a deeper connection and purpose on this earth.
These words capture the guiding philosophy of Amazonian SkinFood ™ Company co-founders Rose and Shane - who met on their journeys from opposite sides of the equator in 2019 - are both driven by a desire for spiritual growth and life mindfully lived.Four years ago, Shane, decided to leave his "normal" life on the East Coast behind. He sold all his possessions and bought a one-way ticket to San Francisco, CA, seeking a new purpose and adventure in his life. In 2018, he spent five months walking 2,650 miles from Mexico to Canada via the Pacific Crest Trail (watch here), and during this time he developed a deep connection with nature. This journey forever changed his path in life, and a new beginning awaited.
Rose, a solo mum backpacking from Brazil with her daughter Alanis, crossed paths with Shane in San Francisco while volunteering on the same social project. Their time together sparked long conversations about love, venturing into the unknown, natural medicine and intentional communities, and a new family arose.
For the next two years, they traveled to the most beautiful destinations that nature has to offer and volunteered at farms and communes in California to learn more about sustainable living all while home-schooling Alanis and showing her what life has to offer when you open yourself up to the synchronicity's and endless possibilities that the open road and universe has to offer.
