I Ran Away to Mexico

An Unexpected Spiritual Journey

                                         Laura LaBrie


I really did run away to Mexico. I sold everything, put my life in a carry-on suitcase and a backpack and spent the next 6 years traveling and living in Mexico, Costa Rica, and Panama. Eventually, in an effort to understand the underlying reasons for poverty, I decided to live in poverty myself. I went without running water, without refrigeration, without electricity.


I RAN AWAY TO MEXICO: AN UNEXPECTED SPIRITUAL JOURNEY is filled with short stories about my adventures with titles like; Blue People, Speak Love, Stuck in Nowhere, Cans and Guilt, Chicken Bone, Re-Defining Poverty, Would You Like a Fish? and much, much more. You can get it in both paperback and e-book by following our green button link to Amazon.

Here is an excerpt from the back of the book:

My life became an experiment. But the results of my experiment were more than I bargained for. I unexpectedly found a spiritual thickness hovering over Latin America. From Mayan pyramids and cavernous entrances to the underworld, to shape-shifting beings and places where time and space bend, I found the remote rain forests and islands are rife with other-worldliness. As my journey took me deeper into the bowels of a land wracked with poverty and human suffering, I became increasingly aware of how the struggle for survival on this narrow isthmus is not won in this realm, but in the one beyond.


"This is a beautiful book, packed full of wonderful stories, rich with engaging characters and written in a way that makes you feel you are there with Laura on Caribbean islands, eating delicious food, feeling the sun and the rain, living every moment of life to the full, in a very humble and real way. It also carries very powerful messages of what is truly important in life, and those messages had me both laughing and crying throughout the book. Very lovely."

Feeding Your Intuition

A Cookbook & Guide to a Healthy Pineal Gland

Laura LaBrie


Laura LaBrie, founder of The Happify Project, and Melissa Rippetoe, a pharmacist, team up to bring science and spirituality together in FEEDING YOUR INTUITION. They met in a little fishing village in Mexico and soon they were discussing the secrets of the universe over a beer in a Mexican beach bar. Together they posed the question, “Why do the indigenous people of Latin America have such strong spiritual sight and well-developed intuition while the people of the US and Canada struggle in these areas?” The answer led them down Alice’s rabbit hole, past modern medical practices, around symbols in ancient art, past traditions found in nearly every civilization on earth, through cutting edge new sciences, over anecdotal cultural evidence and finally into the kitchen.


FEEDING YOUR INTUITION is a foodies’ guide to better intuition. It is a cookbook packed with delicious recipes that will help increase your spiritual sight. Just imagine recipes for mahi-mahi smothered in orange-tamarind sauce, strawberry and goat cheese salad, and traditional Mexican spiced raw chocolate increasing your psychic powers and boosting your intuitive vision! 

Includes: The secrets of why the indigenous peoples of Middle America have such great intuition

How To Happify Your Life

Laura LaBrie
includes the happy foods list
and 4 weeks of happifying activities 


This whole HAPPIFY PROJECT thing is the fruit of seven years of living and traveling in the remote islands, jungles, and rain forests of Mexico and Central America.  While looking for the answers to some of life’s most difficult questions and getting to really know the locals, I discovered something AMAZING!

The local people in Mexico & Central America hold the key to happiness!

It’s so simple and, to them, such a basic and obvious way of living. Over and over again these lovely people challenged my way of thinking. I said things to them and got completely unexpected and sometimes confusing responses until finally, I figured out that their approach to life was totally different than mine. They came from a place of being intuitively and profoundly connected to literally everything!

After living closely with these wonderfully happy “poor” people, I realized that their connection to life encompasses four basic areas: Authentic Self, Other People, Nature, and the Supernatural. Soon, with their help, I began to incorporate that connection into my own life.

My life was radically changed. The people of Mexico and Central America had given me a great gift. My focus, my perspective, my embracing of simple joy, and my understanding of a deeper, more connected way of living impacted the very core of who I am.

And now, I want to take you there.

​Let me show you the four happy points of connection. And let me show you how you can make important and authentic connections at all four of those points in your own life, no matter where you live. Because we are all in this life together and happiness is our birth-right. Some days, we have just forgotten who we are.
