Highlights from today's episode include:
Pam Urbas 07:41
I don't tell people that practice should be yoga, or practice should be meditation. When I started teaching, I was teaching in a regular yoga environment, and I moved more towards therapeutic yoga. And a lot of my clients were into prayer. And I felt that it was just as beneficial as meditation. So, it really depends on the person.
Andy Duchovnay 14:12
And we believe the importance of energy, and the presence of energy everywhere. So just like when you raise food organically, the energy of raising it in a in a good ethical way and in a sustainable way. It infuses the food, and you don't get negative karma from it. And we feel the same about ethically sourcing our gemstones. We know that we're collecting it in a respectful way. And it adds to our sense because we write about our stones, and we say every stone has a story.
Andy Duchovnay 16:41
And it all weaves together because we started taking gemstones and Reiki and fusing them and incorporating them in playing bowl or singing bowl playing sticks. It adds to the energy level and the spiritual experience of it. So, we like to have connections between things that we might not always see, but it just evolves that way.

Core purpose/passion: Our core purpose is to support people develop and grow their spiritual lives. We believe that self-care is necessary. When we take care of ourselves, we can give to others in a sustainable and heart-centered way. To have a meaningful spiritual life it is helpful to have a Home Sanctuary where you can quiet your mind and relax, meditate, pray, play singing bowls, do yoga, journal or anything else you have included in your daily home practice.
