Tucson Gem Show - special requests?

Tucson Gem Show - special requests?

Hope your week treated you with kindness and left you with inspired wonder and curiosity. If you are connected to social media, watch tv or listen to the radio, there is a lot of sensational head shaking going on. I once saw Marion Woodman speak and she talked about the unrest in the world in great depth then she would punctuate "but these are our times." That left a tremendous mark on me. Regardless of how crazy the world seems to be at the moment there is plenty of powerful and nourishing beauty in our natural environment not to lose sight of. I watched a short Ted Talk last night with South African Boyd Varty on the expanse of humanity. He called his talk Cathedral of the Wild. I think you will find it a breath of fresh air. Please let me know if I'm right. https://www.ted.com/talks/boyd_varty_what_i_learned_from_nelson_mandela




Sooo, a week today I leave the world's largest gem show in Arizona. One of my missions for 2017 is to create malas that are the most beautiful, grounding and high vibrational we have ever made. Going to Tucson and communicating direct with mining companies makes ethical sourcing of gems a little easier.

Do you have any special requests for specific stones that you love to wear? Stones that centre you or heal and inspire you? I will take a wish list with me and stay in touch with you through email with pics of any success. Send me a note if you do and I will be your huntress.

with love, a lotus and a smile,

the heads down generation
the heads down generation

by Gisele Theriault March 24, 2019

The Heads Down Generation generally refers to those born after the 80’s but I would say the majority of the population is affected by the lure of our devices. Look around you in public places. Everywhere, people are almost qualified in their lives by their connection to a world that lives in their phone. We are losing the ability to be connected with one another where we are. We are even losing the map to the heart of who we are.  Depression and anxiety are on the rise. We are identifying with a digital world we have no empathetic connection to. The sense of who we think we should be to fit in and be accepted by others is currently framed by social media, celebrities and corporate branding. This makes my heart sink.

what is the spiritual solution to the violence in the world?
what is the spiritual solution to the violence in the world?

by Gisele Theriault March 17, 2019

It’s been an wonderful month so far in Rishikesh. My aspiration here was to do as little as possible. As an over doer this is a great task and not at all easy. Beyond attending satsangs (teachings) and meditation intensives, just being present with the vastness and colours of humanity in the mountains and on the Ganges is enough to change your life.

During a satsang with ShantiMayi someone asked the question for a magazine article she was writing on how spirituality can help the violence in the world.  ShantiMayi started with clarifying that in sanskrit, one of the oldest languages of scriptures there was no word for spiritual. Spiritual is life...

the gift and power of retreats
the gift and power of retreats

by Gisele Theriault March 10, 2019

Lately I've been thinking of why I feel so strongly about curating or attending retreats. There is nothing like a retreat to give us a focused opportunity to pull back from our life as we know it and all the demands and stresses that limit us.This in itself should be enough. To pull back far enough to be a witness and objective friend to our own lives is added sweet medicine. When we are away from routine and inspired it's easier to live between our heart and our gut (the second brain) and give the mind a vacation of its own for awhile.
