When I say that 2017 has been a startlingly generous year, it is only because the adequate terms to convey the encounters, conversations, intimacies and emotional exchanges do not exist within the phrasing of our sometimes course language. As the creative director, waist bead stringer, administrative support, driver and customer service rep for Alaiyo, I have gotten to immerse myself in the lessons and challenges that is hands - on service work. I have taught and gleaned so many things that it feels like the magical advanced education one might be initiated into after their academic advanced education; totally unexpected and dare I admit, bewildering. I am still amazed at the number of ways there are to softly split a heart open so that the giver and the gifted both delight in the warmth and shine. And because sharing and teaching are my first true love I am delighted to be moving into the new year with The Art of Mindfulness and Waist Bead Wearing; an interactive, lively, conversational exchange about how the use of various mindfulness tools and techniques including waistbead wearing are challenging and transforming every corner of women's lives, all across the world.
I hope you will carve out some time in your busy schedule to tune in live or put us in your queue to watch on playback. It promises to be a widening, wondrous place where practical tools and honest sharing will take center stage.
So mark your calendars for every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month beginning December 26th and let's come together as a community so that we can begin to come together more surely within our individual lives. It's possible and it's time. 💚
