The holidays have come and gone, and as many Americans rest and recover from too much celebration, too much food and drink, and too much spending on gifts for one another… families in war torn areas of the world continue to struggle daily to meet basic needs.
The yoga lounge is working through our own yogis, Greg & Jan Franck, with their daughter-in-law Marcy Franck to support a family of three from Syria who are currently living in Jordan in a refugee camp. The young family has been through more trauma than most of us endure in a lifetime. In their current living situation, no matter how hard they work and persevere, the future remains dim. Their best hope is to move to Canada where a network of support is already in place. The roadblock between this family and their future is the cost of transporting them to their new home and making sure they have adequate financial resources for the first 12 months. The balance yoga lounge community is committed to supporting this family on their journey to safety and stability.
During the month of January the lounge will sell temporary tattoos with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the family’s go fund me page.
Each $10 donation earns you a temporary tattoo… but these are no ordinary tats, and Conscious Ink is no ordinary temporary tattoo company. In fact, they’re a consciousness company that utilizes temporary tattoos, hats, and anything they can get their hands on, to support people on their path. Conscious Ink Manifestation Temporary Tattoos consist of a dream list of positive words, inspiring quotes, healing affirmations and empowering invitations. Even at the most basic level, these messages can have a profound effect by simply reminding us of our intentions to live mindfully.
Intentions, positive thoughts and messages can extend much deeper than you might think. Anyone familiar with Dr. Masaru Emoto’s work on the effects of intentions and labels on the molecular structure of water will understand the significance and power of words applied to the body!
1. Take action… BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
2. BREATHE. Choose your intention.
3. Make a $10 donation toward PEACE for a Syrian family.
4. Share your message of LOVE with the world by wearing your temporary ink as a reminder to live with intention and compassion for self and for others!
