I'm joining Service Space because ... Losing my sense of "self" through service is what inspires me to dig deeper and serve more. The people in this space, through their incredible acts of service, are a huge source of inspiration for my own service journey!
A good day to me is when ... I can touch someone's life, in some small way, and make them smile from within :)
My hero in life is ...All the people around the world doing small acts of goodness, right where they are right now. Because ultimately, it is these small acts that together will change the world.
My favorite book is ...Journey books like Siddhartha and Tuesdays with Morrie, Books on raising mindful children like Raising Happiness and books about going within like The Power of Now
One thing I'm grateful for is ... When I can tap into that place, deep inside of me, from which I can do things with a pure heart.

We hosted our second ever Karma Kitchen again on International Day of Happiness to share the Love with Londoners and it was an evening filled with abundant joy, inspiration, kindness, community and Love! We were warmly invited back to host Karma Kitchen at London's first "Happy Cafe", The Canvas Cafe, by the owner Ruth, who has also attended Awakin Circles since our first Karma Kitchen :). As she loves the values and intentions behind Karma Kitchen, she thought it would be a wonderful way to bring community together to celebrate the International Day of Happiness. Seeds were planted just three weeks before this experiment unfolded ... Read Full Story

This year, we've teamed up and put our hearts together with Ruth, the owner of The Canvas Cafe (London's first Happy Cafe!) who has also attended Awakin Circles this past year, once again to host another pop-up Karma Kitchen on the International Day of Happiness, Monday March 20th. We know many folks in the ServiceSpace community know others in London who might like to come along that evening and experience "growing in generosity" first-hand, so please do feel free to share the invitation below with them. You're all invited to join in at Karma Kitchen at The Canvas ... Read Full Story
