It's been two weeks since I left the Toronto studio for a pilgrimage to my birth place that I proudly call the fabulous Maritimes. Where the rivers and lakes meet the ocean frequently and powerfully and the glorious ocean meets the deep hearts of the people. Where you can be nowhere and with nothing and be full of love and gratitude. The overtone of the trip was nurtured the question "what matters?"
From there I went on to Nova Scotia to spend a brief weekend with my sons that university has captured for the last three years. I've not set eyes on them since Christmas so I could have eaten them, if they weren't 6 feet tall. I missed them so much I sat through a UFC boxing championship with them.. kinda! ;-O Opportunities to love and cherish, laugh and cry with family.. that matters.
Celebrating friends and sisters you may walk a hundred journeys and lifetimes with whether with sheer joy or support.. that matters. Sharing meditation, contemplation and re-creation.. that matters.
Now the return journey to the studio for our busy season begins. I am so inspired with vision and a sense of purpose that I am imagining the 18 hour drive will be the final percolating vessel. The feeling of being grounded by nature, the Atlantic, space, noble silence and community. These will nourish us all behind the scenes at the Mindful Necessities studio and I would wish nothing less for you my friend. with a lotus and a smile, Gisele

First I should explain panchakarma as I knew very little of it before I came. Panchakarma is the ultimate mind-body healing experience for detoxifying the body, strengthening the immune system, and restoring balance and well-being...
If the object of life is to be of service to others, which I totally believe, it must be founded on solid ground. If we are operating from a unhealthy half full tank, we are not going to be able to serve anyone.
