Guiding you on your slow living journey
Hi, my name is Sil (Priscilla) MacIntosh, the founder of Adjuma. I am a lover of all things slow living, arts, fashion, dancing, food, and nature. As a certified Mindfulness trainer & Vitality coach, and a Creative Producer in the arts, I have dedicated my life to exploring and promoting the benefits of a balanced, slow-paced lifestyle. Based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, I am here to share my journey and help you with yours.


Adjuma is a pepper, one of the hottest in the world. Originally from South America, the continent of the land where my parents were born: Surinam.

In many ways, my life mirrors the fiery nature of the adjuma. There’s a Dutch saying, “peper in de kont hebben,” which means being constantly on the go, always busy, often at the expense of health, mental well-being, and sustainability. Well, I was an “Adjuma pepper”. And in some ways I still am, but years ago I decided to take control of the fire and add a little sugar to the heat: I went on a slow living journey.


Embracing the Journey
Let’s be honest: slow living in an urban environment isn’t easy. It’s a continuous challenge, especially with a spicy soul and a sensitive heart. But it’s a journey worth embarking on, and Adjuma is here to support you every step of the way. We’re committed to providing a non-judgmental space where you can explore, learn, and grow at your own pace.

At Adjuma, we understand the struggle of keeping up with life’s demands while striving to make better choices. That’s why we’re here—to guide you on your journey towards a more mindful, balanced, and fulfilling life.

Welcome to the tribe. Let’s embark on this journey together.


Adjuma Tribe, for all the other Adjuma's.

This is for all the other Ajduma’s who like a hot hustle but feel a strong impulse to generally slow down in life. Who can’t go floating on a yoga mat full-time but do reserve time to breathe. Who thrive on the speed of life while equally strive to live a life less stressed.

For the Ajduma’s who want to stop eating meat, go vegan maybe, but still love those summer barbecues. Who wish for more trees to ensure clean air but can’t part from the old diesel camper van. Who love the idea of getting groceries at the local market but going to the supermarket creates me-time.

For the Adjuma’s who acknowledge that people’s lives get destroyed in the process of making lots of the products we own (and not even really need!). Who therefore seek slow fashion, fair and sustainable products and might even consider going all minimalist.

This is for all the Adjuma’s who just want to do good for the people and our planet. Without losing sight of what is fun, beautiful, smart and attainable. It’s a struggle, but worth it. Life is about balance, anyway. Feel good and positive about your conscious choices. Slow living can’t be done fast, but it isn’t dull at all. We are Adjuma’s, hello!
