Ice-cream and everything in life which is good. Dancing her heart out until exhaustion takes over. Caring for her plants in the late afternoon when the light is warmer and the day has cooled down. Reading and falling asleep in the sun. Waking up to write in the early hours of the morning. Coffee. Morning love. Unapologetic people and wine. Talking about shit that matters -with chocolate around-; and that is why she loves Lola.
Eda is a Mexican/Costa Rican ice-cream sommelier with a double Master in International Communication and a specialisation in Conflict Solving & Non-violent Communication. During the past seven years she’s been travelling the world, always finding her way back to Bali; now her home. She is a professional writer (with a couple of non-very-famous awards) who spends most of her mornings writing or complaining about not being able to write. She teaches creative & erotic writing -with a flare for experiential exercises- online, and in Mexico City. Eda started meditating early in life -attending several silent meditation retreats in Mexico, Guatemala & Scotland-, and continues to practice -almost- every day. She is a dancer, a -sometimes stupid- risk taker, an intense doer, a mind-roamer, a graphic designer and a witch… ooh, how cool would it be? She is deeply interested in the human nature; in the stories and the little details that make us who we are. In growing though love and resilience, and in triumphing through the recognition that we have already won.
