J.J. MARTIN’S SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
The American, Italy-based founder of the wildly colorful La DoubleJ lifestyle brand described her recent journey through Egypt with Dee Kennedy’s Awakening the Divine (Kennedy’s company providing “sacred journeys” through the country) as a rebirth. “From the moment I arrived in Egypt, I felt more at home than I ever have in Milan or Los Angeles,” she wrote recently in a newsletter. “I loved the burning heat, the haggling, hassling street vendors, even the icy, muddy Nile, which I slipped into like silk sheets, rolling around in a hippolike bliss.” This October (14–26), she will return, this time not as a guest but as Kennedy’s cohost on another Nile journey.
