gift giving at florence crittenton home






Sharing gifts with the gals at Flo. Crit yesterday was one of the very best things I've been a a part of all year. Quite amazing to give and to be able to share with these gals. To talk about what they had to express gratitude for (healthy babies was the most mentioned) and what they had to look forward to over the next six months (transitioning to healthy homes and GED's/jobs was the most mentioned).

There are currently 11 girls at the home. And a new gal was arriving today. Please send wishes/hopes/prayers out to these gals over the holiday season. They need much energy and support. Many thanks to all of you for helping to make this a memorable holiday for them. Barefoot Works, as a community spent $1100 on giving to these girls and babies. Ahhhmazing.

Thank you from the very bottom of my heart....

Recognized as one of the finest Yoga retreats in the world, sivanandabahamas is dedicated to promoting the authentic spiritual tradition of Yoga, in an environment normally associated with an exclusive star hotel. We endeavour to embody the spiritual tradition of Athithi devo Bhava (serving the Guest as an embodiment of the Divine) and the staff at sivanandabahamas are trying to practice all facets of Yoga in their daily lives. At sivanandabahamas, you get a unique insight into Yoga, irrespective of whether you are a beginner or have practiced for many years.

sivanandabahamas is situated in bahamas where the emphasis is to live an ashram style life (daily yoga, meditation sessions, chanting classes, organic vegetarian food, no alcohol, community service, farming etc.) in private, serene and "simply" luxurious accommodation and facilities. In a typical Yoga Retreat, guests practice different facets of Yoga - for physical strength, balance and flexibility, for physiological & therapeutic benefits and if they are interested, for pursuing a spiritual path through various types of meditation.
