World Peace Day + Global Mala Project


Yoga brought me to this place. I saw a need  to infuse some balance, perspective, joy into the wedding planning process. To inspire people to relax, and remember that it is about your partnership, your family, your friends...not about the size of the ring, the price of the dress, or the perfect photographs. And to remind us that we are citizens of the world, stewards of the Earth.  Today is World Peace Day and this weekend is the Global Mala Project, created by the amazing Yoga Teacher Shiva Rea. This morning, Twee Merrigan reminded me to live a more peaceful, balanced life. It is with a peaceful heart that you will truly twist and soar, on your weding day and long after.

wedding planning poetry: daily poetics

For my wedding, each guest recieved a poem. I've always loved poetry;  Emily Dickinson, Wallace Stevens  and Tennyson are my favorites. When I happened upon the site, Daily Poetics, of course I had to share it with you...and don't forget the poetry, we need it...


From: "Ephemera" on Daily Poetics.

a poem from my wedding follows for your reading pleasure...

Marriage Morning, Alfred Lord Tennyson

Light, so low upon earth,
  You send a flash to the sun.
Here is the golden close of love,
  All my wooing is done.
Oh, the woods and the meadows,
  Woods where we hid from the wet,
Stiles where we stay'd to be kind,
  Meadows in which we met!

Light, so low in the vale
You flash and lighten afar,
For this is the golden morning of love,
  And you are his morning star.
Flash, I am coming, I come,
  By meadow and stile and wood,
Oh, lighten into my eyes and heart,
  Into my heart and my blood!

Heart, are you great enough
  For a love that never tires?
O' heart, are you great enough for love?
  I have heard of thorns and briers,
Over the meadow and stiles,
  Over the world to the end of it
Flash for a million miles.
