Peace in your thanksgiving

by 3 October 13, 2013

Come, imagine yourself upon this hammock.
Every ounce of tension, anger and fear has left
you with a gentle rhythymic sway and the
breeze of the mountain air caresses your face.
There is nothing left but a gentle gratitude for all the
moments and all the people that have touched your life
and you smile.
1440 moments of every day brings you a teacher. It could
be an encounter, a smile, a book, bird or tree. Even those
who make you suffer, bless them as they brought teachings.
If you're reading this you are a part of my life
and I am grateful.

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

by Gisele Theriault April 21, 2019

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.
