Can there be any holiday greater than one
that contains Giving and Thanks!

Every day I count my blessings,
from the moment my eyes open and see the trees
under the various palates of the immense sky,
watch the squirrels chase each other with
not a care in the world.
I hold immense thanks for the
plenitude of opportunities
to learn, create, share, grow, share community 
and strive to be a love warrior for the best world possible.

"Oh, so lucky GG" as my grandson says;-) thank YOU for being part of this 
beauty and wonder I see and feel, no matter what. 
Whatever I can do for you, I'm here.

behind the scenes..

Here are a couple of projects we're getting to work on in the studio. 
Feels like Santa and all the Deities got together and created this studio. 

Since creating the Abacus Mala I felt it was only right to create an Abacus Rosary.

 It's made of tiger wood and silver with the counter beads 
having the same kinetic movement as the Abacus Malas.
Next cast the cross then deeply reflect what words of wisdom 
or grace will service us best. Maybe find a space for a piece of kyanite;-)

The other project that I have been hankering to do for a long time, 
and yes nudged by lots of requests is meditation rings. Here is the beginning. 
The masters you see in brass are made from recycling our old 
watch bands from a previous line. What fun. The water carved spinner ring is 
the same as the Tam ring and the prayer spinner ring needs to be cast. 
We'll offer them in mixed alloys. 
We are in love..
Myself and sweet team at the studio wish you the most
delightful Thanksgiving you've ever known.

with love~ always

ps. I'll be playing in the studio on Monday, 
if you find yourself roaming around the Queen West area, 
come visit the gallery.

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.
