Mother's Day is ALL of May

by 3 May 04, 2014

56459-necklace_tbds Since our journals to you with purchases were so popular last year, we decided to honor it again. May will be the month of honoring Mothers once again at tbds. A beautiful journal will be gifted with every purchase over $150. Encourage your Mother to write her inspirations, her trials, her glories, HERstory. I can guarantee you... it will be different than you think. The inspiration: For my mother's 75th birthday I gave her a journal and asked her to please write her stories for the generations to come. Since I was the 8th and last living child, I knew there was so much I hadn't known. My mother was one of 11 children and she and my father were pioneers in a remote village in Cape Breton, imagine the stories. She did write her story but requested it not be read until she was gone. She died in the last days of 2012. Although it was seventeen years since she was given the book, no one forgot. I took the book and made copies for all her children. After the funeral, my daughter Gala and I curled up in a cozy corner of the house and read her story. Wow.  This was one of the most remarkable gifts. Honour her journey. Gather the HERstories. MAY_at_TBDS Visit our website this month and receive FREE standard shipping + a hard-covered journal ($18 value) with purchases over $150. Love to you and the Mother in us all.

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East
Mindful Necessities West to East

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.
