First Awakin In Palencia, Spain Posted by Sabine Admine, Jun 17 2018 New members have appeared on the horizon to participate in strengthening the spirit of the Awakening Kin; in illuminating the whole globe with little, conscious and truly loving steps. This Saturday, on a very sunny afternoon, under the guidance of a support team from Burgos (warm thanks to Joserra, David and Asun!!!), we opened a door to a new living room that gathers brothers and sisters in behalf of generating and emitting infinite peace. Great sparkles, smiles and deep silence were shared. At the forthcoming parts welcoming words, inspiring and heartwarming stories were accompanied with a miniature broom-like talking stick. Delicious gifts and also some requirable ‘first timer’ moments were present. :) What a joy! Regarding to the previously mentioned ‘broom’ that served as a talking stick, we were speaking about it as if it was sweeping away the matter of such categories as age, race, gender, origin, religious beliefs, social status and ...

Complete And Delicious Success! #goodpeople Posted by Elizabeth Pimentel-Gopal, Jun 17 2018 Few leaked photos of Karma Kitchen Toronto yesterday, that we couldn't wait to share ... Banh Mi sandwiches and Vietnamese colesaw! Oooh. We can imagine who the expert chef might've been. A local city council candidate tweeted: "Congratulations @servicespace @connectwiththu on the inaugural #karmakitchenpicnic at the #mossparkmarket in #mosspark. Fantastic #FreshThinkingTO idea for connecting our diverse communities. A complete and delicious success! #goodpeople" And one volunteer's grade 6 son, Atna, was a rockstar yesterday! He cracked open all the supplies and went to work writing the sidewalk chalk greetings in all languages. He even came up with a scavenger hunt game where he hid the letters PEACE around the park, made clues and rallied all the kids together to go find the letters. At the end of the day, he wanted to return the letters for the next time, and I asked if he wanted to keep them to play again with his friends. :) He did. Big hugs to all! :)
Seeing China With New Eyes -- The Trip That Transforms Posted by Xiaojuan Shu, Jun 15 2018 My most recent trip to China this year has forever transformed my relationship with China, where I was born and raised, and had lived until my mid-twenties. In the past, visiting China often brought up my old shame of being a peasant's daughter, and aversion of the contemporary empty consumerism. During this trip, I met so many inspiring souls and was in constant awe of the vibrant life force that had led them to living their lives with such audacity and creativity. My old self-image and my view on China were renewed, again and again, in their refreshing presence. During one long phone call with brother Zilong while sitting on a swing chair in a courtyard in an ancient town in southern China, I couldn’t contain my overflowing joy and said “I wish I could just move back to China and live here now!” Though now I know that I’m ...

A Peace Of Land :) Posted by Joserra G., Jun 15 2018 "“In my opinion, if 100% of the people were farming it would be ideal." Masanobu Fukuoka Two days ago we were gifted a piece of land and we are making of it a Peace of Land or a Land of Peace :). Some friends in my village were not using this land and we asked them if it was possible for us to use it :). Thank you Jose and Marivi and Chari! This is kind of common in our village since there is already a culture of sharing land when you are not using it which is very nice. A small Bhoodan movement :) Miki, Irene and my parents did a great job preparing it and we can already see great beauty on the land. Farming can be such a labor of love too, I believe :). When we go there we want to stay more and it invites a lot to meditate, contemplate or read… I feel plants also will respond to this love, but no expectations hahaha just experimentations ;). And as Miki said, we have planted more so we can start chains of generosity and gift to others !!! So happy for this :) Come any time hahaha :)
