shay-hughes-tn-300Bram: Could you introduce yourself and tell us a little about what you do as it applies to our theme of the Conscious Nomadic Lifestyle?

Shay: Hello. My name is Shalena Hughes, also known to my community and to many others as Shay Butta. And I have a brand that I work with called the Yum Sauce Lounge. I am the founder and sauceteer along with many other lovely people called the Angels of Yum. And we are of service. It's a platform for visionary, cultural, healing, arts, etcetera to activate and stimulate and inspire a higher quality of life in the best ways that we possibly can.

Bram: Sounds great! How long have you been doing this in its current or a similar form?

Shay: The Yum Sauce started in 2008. And it's now 2013 so we've been going [for a while]… We started very intimate in my living room, in my home when I was living in Hollywood when I still had my home. And since then I've been able to travel the world in various spots and throughout the West coast bringing different aspects of the Yum to everyone. It’s a lot of fun.

Bram: Tell us about some of the favorite places or events to which you have traveled.

forest-location-independent-tnForest: Hi, my name is Forest Schrodt and I have a company called Liquid Fire Mantra, a ritual firedance performance group and visionary jewelry company. I’ve been doing the nomadic lifestyle since 1996 and I guess that’s sixteen years or eighteen years, something like that. I’ve been doing the gypsy and nomadic lifestyle for a very long time, travelling up and down primarily the West Coast United States going to music festivals, vending my designs that I have produced in Bali, and also doing performance art. And I’ve been on this alternative path for quite some time, and it’s been great to explore and see a lot of places and meet a lot of interesting people and a lot of creative inspiration constantly coming through.

The trade-off is the challenge of finding a healthy biorhythm with not necessarily having like a home for a long period of time where you can kind of drop in with the community and have like build on a rhythmical cycle. But it has a larger biorhythm of this cycle, yearly cycle of going to one place to the next and having communities there that have been developed for many years. So there’s always this kind of like balancing of more traditional way of living and living in one area and having a house, having a biorhythm, getting up at the same time, going to sleep at the same time generally as opposed to having the freedom in the nomadic lifestyle of not having to pay large amounts of money on rent, but also not having a necessarily this defined biorhythm which, for me, as I’ve gone older is probably the biggest challenge of maintaining a nomadic lifestyle.

Bram: Tell us about some of your favorite places or events to which you’ve traveled.

A New Territory Is Emerging...

It extends beyond the borders of all nation-states, far beyond the historical boundaries previously drawn and protected.


The edges of this new territory are expanding exponentially in all directions, both within and without.

It is a virtual territory formed and inhabited by conscious individuals who are becoming location independent and free from the limitations of place... and we have labeled it the Conscious Nomads Matrix.

The Conscious Nomads Matrix is the all-encompassing unified energetic field created by all of us who are consciously connecting, creating, collaborating, sharing, loving, and envisioning a new way of being, while traveling the world or otherwise living from a location independent awareness.

What is This? is a resource for anyone who is attracted to the location independent lifestyle. From Music Festival goers to world travelers, if you want to expand your circle of friends; knowledge of places, people and things; and increase the potential for income you can earn from anywhere in the world, then this is a stellar resource for you.

What is the Matrix? 

As I've traveled to transformational music festivals (transitory towns), and to pockets of consciousness around the world, I've noticed that many of the people I am interacting with have a noticeably different quality about them.  

As I observed this over time, as people came and went, an understanding crystalized for me that we Conscious Nomads are creating a new virtual territory (an energetic field, a collective, a matrix, a hologram) that extends beyond nation-state borders and historically accepted boundaries, and encompasses the entire planet.
