Episode Info

Episode Info: Dear Wachama Peeps!  In this week’s episode you can get to know Ren Wong from Singapore. We had a fascinating conversation with Ren and touched up on all kinds of topics. We came to the conclusion that you cannot really live a fulfilled life if your occupation is not in alignment with your values and what your inner voice/your soul is calling you to do. To establish your value system, you might need to try the extremes first to find your middle way. And to be able to hear and find out what your inner calling is, the constant chatter of your mind needs to be silenced. Ren tried out himself in the oil business and later he started to study about renewable energy sources.  Coming from an ultra-urban environment (Singapore) he is experiencing and finding values in rural life close to nature.  The other important dimensions of Ren’s journey is health and self-exploration. Dealing with autoimmune disease since his childhood made him very aware of what he consumes from food to new and body care. Seeing almost every input as information he became very conscious to filter out the unnecessary “noise” and toxins” of the world. The role of fasting when food is restricted or Vipassana silent meditation that restricts noises and many other virtual inputs provided him already deep insights how the world around him and his mind and body operate. Further explorations led him to discover the healing and magical power of plants that can heal our mind, body & soul all together with our environment and economics.
