On that Wellness tip and helping others…
In the last year or so I began to immerse myself in activities (both mental and physical) to help me grow as a person and shed a little bit of that superficial and somewhat reckless party life that I cultivated in the time I’ve lived in New York. This includes meditation, reading and practicing aspects of buddhist teachings in my life, being in-tune with myself learning about my chakras and how to balance them, jumping back into yoga and ballet classes (which is a spiritual experience for me… dramatic as it sounds.)
I’ve also met a lot of very talented and like-minded people along the way, one of which is my friend Guillerma, who has decided to embark on this journey of opening a creative wellness studio in Bushwick.
When she started telling me about her plans, I got extremely excited for both the types of services she wanted to offer as well as the fact that she wanted to do this in Bushwick (where I’ve previously resided.) She had all the plans laid out in her mind - her vision of the space and what she wanted to project. Bringing people together has always been something that I loved to do, which is why Mallory and I started Small Girls. Doing so around wellness and art seemed very in-line with my current passions, so I was happy to jump in and offer some of my skills in business, organization and PR, to help Guillerma out.
Check out her indiegogo page for the Bhati Creative Wellness Center to read more about what she aims to do in the community- art, yoga, spiritual healing, ayurvedic vegetarian cooking classes, massages, etc. Donate $$ if you can (15 days left in the campaign!), and if a monetary donation isn’t something feasible for you, spreading the word to your friends and network is just as helpful!
(i never sign off my blog posts like that, but it just felt right…)
