One of our days in Chiang Mai was spent helping our friend Julie check out organic farms for her new organization, Live It Global. Organic farming in Chiang Mai is becoming more popular, thanks to several people who are pushing the community in that direction. There are a lot of small villages around Chiang Mai that are mainly focused on agriculture, growing fruits and vegetables which they sell in the local markets. It was a great experience to get out of the city and see how some country people live. Read more →
This is the first in a series of posts we’re starting that will feature the businesses of our traveling friends and clients of Global Traveler Networks! We’re featuring amazing people who we 100% support and helping them spread the word about the good they are offering the world!
Iosif and Natalia of Mattera Life Designing & Psychotherapy are quite inspirational. We met them randomly over the internet and they kindly offered us a free first psychotherapy session of “couples therapy from a couple” as they call it. Their focus is in combining psychotherapy, metaphysics and spirituality to create a holistic approach to bettering your life. Originating from Romania but currently based in Bali , they conduct their sessions in person or via Skype. Most of their clients are people who have already broken out of the so-called “normal realm” of thinking and are looking for the next level of consciousness. Long term travelers and digital nomads could find them the most beneficial, since when living overseas its hard to know where to go or who to turn to if you would like to talk to a therapist. Also, local therapists from the country you are in might not understand your background and your nomadic lifestyle!
One of the most interesting things that we talked about in our session was our fears around money. Natalia and Iosif really opened our eyes to the difference between the “spending mindset” vs the “investing mindset. ” Whenever you are using money for any reason, do you think of it as “spending” i.e. the scary loss of money, or as “investing” into yourself. “God is in you, and you can trust god” said Natalia, “You must know that you will be given all that you need, when you need it”.
Mattera is picky about the people they take on for sessions as they are better suited to those who have already started along the path of expanding their conscious awareness. The best way to describe their target market might be “hippie traveler digital nomads”.
If you go to their website, mattera.life, you can sign up for a free first session so Iosif and Natalia can get to know you a little bit. They want to open doors for you inside of yourself, so you can search around for your own happiness. Some of their areas of expertise are helping people with limiting beliefs, emotional blockages and traumas, and accessing higher states of consciousness. Their theory is that by building your life in the right way, the universe will conspire to give you everything that you need.
