"Anneke’s journey from the excesses of modern times and self-entitlement to a life of self-sufficient enlightenment and simplicity."

CC2.-VVVV-Angkordark15�-sunkissed15�-NEWEST-FINAL-copy

We all romanticize the notion of a more pared-down, simpler life, not because we are nostalgic but because there is truth to it. With simplicity comes awareness. We learn more about our true selves. Through reflection and gratitude, we are able to embody not our public but our private face, the too-often hidden yet far more authentic one. And in so doing, our relationships become more meaningful because we can choose those people in our lives with whom we want to be and accept us for who we truly are.

One of the many benefits of simplicity is that it allows us to strip away the nonessential, focus our time and energy on the things that matter most, and pursue our interests. In Anneke van Waesberghe’s case, that interest is the very notion of a simpler life. Grounding into the beauty of the body and the earth, Anneke is one of the most creative people I have ever met. Her latest output, The Art of Living Without Walls: Haute Couture Architecture, is the culmination of a life in service to the earth and regenerative materials, a love letter to sustainable living and community work.

Anneke has impressively created a community in Bali’s uplands, aptly called The Sanctuary, that embodies artisan craftsmanship and inspiration. She designs and produces luxury, eco-friendly, semi-permanent tents for both private and commercial use through her unique company, Escape Nomade. It’s eco-luxe at its best: in harmony with nature and environmentally sound. Anneke’s tents’ bioclimatic design ensure ultimate comfort and use sustainable materials and energy-efficient construction, leaving the land virtually untouched. Above the Ayung River, outside of Ubud, a peaceful center for traditional crafts and dance, terraced with rice paddies and dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, Anneke offers visitors a divine taste of her beautiful and serene escape. I applaud her values, motivation, and vision for sustainable beauty, a concept around which she was amazingly prescient! Anneke is actually doing it, living her environmental dream with beautiful, natural materials and fabrics. Not surprisingly, hers is a vibration that people hunger to replicate, wanting to empower themselves and manifest the spirit of “living without walls”.
