Meraki [may-rah-kee] to us

To do something through creativity and love, in alignment with the soul. When you put “all of your Self” into what you’re doing, whatever it may be.

– Origin Greek

We are happy to welcome you on the journey into a ‘Meraki Life’

Our Story in short

We are Vito and Shemara, both following our own unique path, with our own unique experiences and we love to facilitate you in our own unique way.

We were living the full ratrace lifestyle. From searching everything outside of ourselves to looking for validation, working around the clock and living towards the weekends. Although we were living the so-called ‘live’, we didn’t feel complete and went for a deep dive within

Follow our journey, learn from our learnings and come join the ride. Let’s go on the biggest adventure of our lives.

Let’s (re)connect!

The Meraki lifestyle is all about connecting to your true Self, align with it and live a life from love with purpose and guidance. Your heart, your true self, or higher self (just the way you want to call it) lives from unconditional love. The ego lives from fear and basically falsely ‘protects’ you. If we can align ourselves with our heart we can let go of fear and live a Meraki life.

Love, Vito & Shemara

Our journey

Vito’s story

Climbing out of the ratrace, I feel the urge to live a more loving and sustainable lifestyle.

This is not something that happens overnight but since I found the love of my life it started to become a daily practice. From a life with the marines to a wild nightlife into a life following my own unique path. I wanted to turn my life around and find my Meraki.

I embrace what Pachamama has to offer us in plant medicine, I’ve been to the source and I will guide your journey musically – Music is the universal language and it speaks to me loud and clear – and I am grateful. to share it with others from a place of pure bliss. 

This is my journey and I love to capture it

Do you love photography just as much as I do? Look around the website to see my work or follow my visual journey on Instagram @bymeraki_ or @akadonv 

One love, Vito

Shemara’s story

I AM,  nothing more and nothing less…. but I’ve you like a story, here’s mine 😉

Healing is my passion, born from experiencing lack of health. From abdominal complaints to allergies and other enigmatic symptoms. Fortunately, Western medicine could not help me, so that is where my journey began. I started a study for natural food nutritionist, changed my lifestyle, started a foodblog: EerlijkerEten followed by creating a sustainable vegan chocolate brand: Ridiculously Good. 

To dive deeper, I studied Chinese philosophy, the 5 Elements, sound healing, RTT, YTT, plant medicine & energy healing. To connect all I embraced ACIM, RUOW, and ACOL.

All the knowledge I gained and all the experimenting I did, led me to experience all that I AM. I say YES to my inner journey to complete Self love, to feel all that is and I love facilitating you on that same journey.

I will meet you where you are and inspire you to explore and release what arises so that you can go through and beyond your barriers and embrace your true Self.

Let’s help each other to remember, awaken and live a ‘Meraki lifestyle’.

Love, Shemara

The journey

The way to the heart



What is it that you most desire? Become aware of your heart desires.



What are your intentions? Set them daily to become the conscious creator of your life.



Allow your desires and intentions into your life, welcome them with love and be grateful for all that is.



Now let go of the outcome, trust and surrender. You are always at the right place at the right time. The universe works FOR you, never forget that.


Who am I?

Your true Self The greatest journey you make in life, I would say, is the discovery of your Self. Who am I? THE question that has crossed everyones mind at one point, are you open for the answer? Are you willing to go within to experience the answer?

Ready to reconnect?

Do you have a question ….
