In an effort to raise funds and awareness for Keep A Child Alive, Alicia Keys and I co-created the Inukshuk dog tags. As shown in the You Tube video Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart.

It's been a great honor to work on this project. Alicia, Leigh Blake and the rest of the extraordinary hearts from Keep a Child Alive are doing momentous things to eliminate unnecessary suffering. http://keepachildalive.org/


The unisex dog tags quote Gandhi, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others" on the outer plate. The inner plate can be personalized with up to 25 characters. ie. name/birthday or a fav inscription . Of the selling price of 295. I donate 100. The Barber's Daughter's have raised thousands of dollars already. Check it out if you are able.

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
