We cannot unknow what we have now learned and the brutality of our laws cannot stand. The time is now to continue this critical work. We have such a remarkable opportunity to face these truths and work towards that more perfect union that is our democratic experiment of these United States of America.
For all of 2020 I have committed to give 10% of my net sales to support the work of the Black Lives Matter organization and the Bail Project, and have a few art pieces in progress. When I auction these pieces off, I give 100% of the profit to these organizations.
This Stunning and weighty piece features the traditional 108 bead meditation mala style with a vintage silk tassel, Buddhist meditation inscribed 24k plated silver guru bead and Protective Black Spinel, Invigorating Yellow Citrine and Grounding Hematite. This works out to be a perfect mala for this Black Lives movent! This price reflects the Buy it Now price for an auction that will be held on Instagram and Facebook and 100% of the profits will be donated to Black Lives Matter to further their important work. If you want to support me and Black Lives, Buy it now and you can also add a tip in checkout and 100% of that will be donated.
I believe that we are truly in a new phase of awakening, ironic as we head into the dark of winter. To me this is a time for our quintessential humanity, even in this dark time in our pandemic world, our climate crisis world, our geo-political world, our social justice world, all slammed together in 2020 (like running right up to a hard deadline where failure is simply not an option). I have faith our intrinsic strength, and hold gratitude and optimism for our hopes for a better world.
Thank goodness our country (the USA) has moved into the path of progress once again. Despite the many challenges that remain ahead of us, this time of year is when we find our gratitude for our lives (quite literally as 256,000 Americans are already lost).
My Spirit word for 2020 was ABUNDANCE [MINDSET] and with all of the shutdowns, my abilty to support myself with my art has made this a challenge. I decided early on after lockdown that an abundance mindset, it would have to be all about Silver Linings, and finding them in every hard turn I face. What lessons, what gifts can come from a rotten situation?
