Farewell 2015

Road trip

Where did time go?

Does time have wings?

Our little children always laugh at our questions.

As we take stock of a year that will soon pass, we realize we are no longer the same person from last December, and even from yesterday. Our favorite yoga teacher Stella once said only the living dead does not evolve.

It has been a year of change, to say the least. When we found the courage to ditch our security blanket and venture far beyond the comfort zone, we did not sink, as we initially feared. We picked up new skills, unlearned and relearned so many things, released past conditionings that no longer serve us.

Most of all, our dedicated home practice on the [yoga] mat equipped us with tools that helped us go through change with grace. More than ever, yoga has become our rock.

We are looking forward to 2016. Our dreams have not grown much bigger but there is a newfound clarity that will guide us forward.

There have been some changes on the home front. We are so sorry some of you came all the way to look for us only to find the shutters down. We are immensely grateful you support the work we do. It makes us feel we are not alone in this journey of conscious living. We are working on accessibility. This much we can divulge for now.

In the spirit of slowing down and setting our intentions for the new year, this will be our last blog for the year. We want to wrap up the year with one of our favorite quotes.

“As your faith is strengthened you will find that there is no longer the need to have a sense of control, that things will flow as they will, and that you will flow with them, to your great delight and benefit.” Emmanuel Teney

100 Good Things will close from Dec 24th and reopen on Jan 11th.

‘Tis the season for conscious gifting

Fetsive hamper

This festive season is a little special for us. Our little children, who love running imaginary shop/cafe at home, now have a real shop with genuine customers and merchandise. The real shop has to be – surprise, surprise – cleaned, products stocked, arranged, tagged and counted, and you can’t roll onto the bed when your back is aching. Then there’s the holiday season to fuss over.

This year, instead of planning a yearend getaway, the family got together to dress up the shop for festivities ahead. We are grateful we have our loved ones with us as we take on this new role. We are thankful we can change lives through what we do. We are inspired by our eager and curious children as we are by the artisans we work with.

Yes we are ready for your stockings! We have something for everybody, from babies and fashion conscious to the ardent gourmand. Everything has been sourced with care, consciousness and understanding. We are two minds about packaging excesses so we keep it simple and minimal. We resist painting our own wrapping paper and gift boxes like we always do at home. For you, we use recycled kraft paper. And we took the trouble to shred used paper so we can avoid buying brand new paper for stuffing. Of course, we understand it is Christmas and if you like some bling, we can oblige.

We are so excited to be living this holiday season with a sense of purpose. Conscious living is close to our hearts and we are grateful for the opportunity to take steps to manifest our intentions. We want you to join us on this journey. How about starting with mindful gifting?
