The One of a Kind Show | spectacularly done like dinner

We are one week post the remarkable One of a Kind Show. What a marathon, not only for the artists exhibiting but for you who came to walk the immense show and support some of us. We estimated from different people who were tracking the steps that it was 9,500 steps in average without repeating isles, so give yourself a pat if you made it through it all! ;-)


I
am still processing the outcome on multiple levels. It was the best show we ever had, more important than the sales were the moments shared with people and the extraordinary stories we got to hear. It confirmed my belief that if we could truly hear each others life stories, struggles and dreams from the naked heart there would be no wars and no hate.

Many people asked why after another 'best ever' I would not return. Although a hard decision, the answer is ultimately to serve people better. We are very excited about our wonderful online store, we're excitied to bring you mindful workshops and to invite you to the retreats to Ireland.  And mostly for the opportunity to remind you that the wonders and mysteries in life are intertwined in the simplest things and accessible to all who wish to seek. 

With the closing announcement of the show my beautiful team popped a bottle of champagne, lit sparklers and threw confetti to end 22 years as an exhibitor and the new journey ahead. Ok, yes there were a few tired and grateful tears shared. Thank you for being part of this memorable year.
 

So much change, gratitude and love.

sending you a smile and the warmest holiday wishes,

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

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.
