I'm joining Service Space because ... I feel people in this family are connected to my values. All of you are an inspiration for me. You are being the change and that supports me being it too!!
A good day to me is when ... There are a lot of smiles around me and stillness in my mind
My hero in life is ...The Power of Now, Siddharta, Ebano
My favorite book is ...Jayeshbhai Patel
One thing I'm grateful for is ... For Mother Nature, for its beauty, and for noble friends.
Nov 13, 2017, 2 comments, 22 smiles One day in California and I already feel like falling in the ServiceSpace rabbit hole :). So much generosity and love! OMG! I should write a poem to describe the beauty, but maybe I will do that in Spanish hahaha Audrey came to pick me up in the airport with a smile sign written in my mother tongue. She is such a loving person! Then she drove me all the way to Banyan Grove, the new retreat home recently gifted to ServiceSpace! The home where I am going to spend my next month! The place is so magical and already filled with so much love from the local friends. Banyan Grove is in the middle of a beautiful forest with red woods, pine trees, sequoias, maples… a perfect spot to the intention it holds. You don’t have to be futurologist to know that Banyan Grove is going to be a true ... Read Full Story

Sep 11, 2017, 1 comments, 17 smiles Re-love-ution Retreat! 1-2-3 September 2017 Villasur de Herreros Burgos There are so many angles from where we could describe what happened last weekend in Villasur de Herreros, a village near Burgos, in the place of the planet we now call Spain. And so many angels from where to describe it too :). 24 of us gathered with the intention of exploring what Re-love-ution means. What does it mean to live in a gift ecology? What is the service calling of our times? What are the forms of truth that want to emerge nowadays? What does the spirit of gift mean? What questions are we holding in our journey of service to others and inner transformation? The retreat was a magical emergence which came to life through the generosity of many, so many… The house was gifted, the food was gifted, the decoration materials were gifted, all the gifted volunteers gifted their time! So much gifting happy-ning! ... Read Full Story

Jul 25, 2017, 5 comments, 19 smiles Original link: here! Another magical evening at Karma Kitchen Burgos! Unbelievable! 10 volunteers, more than 40 meals offered, but more than that, the intangible great feeling of offering and receiving so much kindness and magic in many forms :) The Kindness Table was full of various gifts from the community, from personalized candles, to special books, to plants with quotes or chocolates! The invisible previous labor of love from volunteers filled the space with beauty and good intentions! Few people said they couldn't believe how much care they saw in every detail, and yet, not to be asked for anything! It was a very powerful experience for them! Now they want to come and volunteer, and who knows where that goes! :) Few kids came to have dinner with us, and some of them ended up washing dishes at the end! The parents were astonished...They were like: “we have been trying this for years, ... Read Full Story

Mar 28, 2017, 3 comments, 16 smiles “When you invest in spiritual capital you are re-paid in coin-cidences” by Brother Miki Just 2 days in Spain after my trip to India, life offers some beautiful gifts. Yesterday we had a wonderful Awakin Circle in Madrid. More than 20 of us gathered in the simple yet powerful spirit of collective inquiry and co-creation, listening and community. Yesterday I felt clearly the depth and power of such timeless design & the service intention behind it... For many reasons, I felt gratitude. I felt gratitude for the elders of hundreds of cultures that have held such circles over history, I felt gratitude for our living elders who brought these circles to life, and left the door open, I felt gratitude for the friends at the amazing home La Sala Verde, who open their space for so many beautiful activities in Madrid, I felt gratitude for all the people in the circle, holding together ...

Jan 02, 2017, 10 smiles For many cultures, trees have always been a source of inspiration and wisdom. They have also sheltered meaningful spaces where communities gathered to celebrate, remember or cry together. We could think we are disconnected from trees, we could think that our society doesn't value these amazing beings. The truth is that every activity we organize around a tree, or every time we talk about trees, everyone in the circle shows how much alive that connection still is. Whether we know it or not, we live in symbiosis with the trees, we couldn't survive without them. And it's so beautiful to witness us, as conscious beings, coming back to the trees to reconnect with them and share presence and feelings under their branches. Few days ago, around 40 of us gathered under a Yew Tree, a magnificent species with thousands of uses and meanings, to share silence and peace messages for peace in ... Read Full Story
