Out of my silent Buddhist retreat and hanging out with the kids of our @livesoftly fair trade makers today 😊 too cute! #fairtrade #socialenterprise #womensempowerment #livesoftly #nepal

Three years ago in India a Buddhist nun gave me this beautiful hand painted children's book done by a Buddhist nun thangka artist. It's a story about recycling and karma set in Tibet (with the aim of educating Indian children about recycling). I've tried to see if I could get a publisher but no luck so far, so I'm putting it out to the Online world to see if anyone knows of a publisher or other option as I'm going to send the originals back next week. Thought I should give it one last try πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ‡³πŸ‡΅πŸ™πŸ½βœ¨βœ¨ #Buddhist #children's #book #goodkarma

Live Softly quality control meeting today with the wonderful Hari who has taught me so much about fair trade and the issues in Nepal and the amazing organisation he has helped to set up to give people who are undereducated and incapacitated the opportunity to earn a living and stop begging in the streets. Bit of a hero while he wouldn't say so himself πŸ‘‘β€οΈπŸ‡³πŸ‡΅πŸ™πŸ½βœ¨ #socialenterprise #nepal #fairtrade #womensempowerment #craft #revolution #etsy

De ja vu! Back in Nepal after my trip to India three years ago that started it all and hanging out with the monk who introduced me to it back then in a coffee shop in Dharamsala (and that reunion wasn't planned!) Having a weird feeling that I'm living the Celestine Prophecy with a bit of Eat Pray Love mixed in, some kind of Dharma Adventure book. If only people hadn't already written the novel ! πŸŒˆπŸ™πŸ½βœ¨βœ¨β€οΈ #eat #pray #love #live #softly #auspicious #cliche #nepal

3 years ago I was hanging out with this wonderful Buddhist monk who I met in India asking him all the big questions... and today three years later I step on to the streets of Kathmandu on my first day and bump in to him amongst the 30 million people in Nepal. If that's not karma I'm not sure what is!!! Then and now πŸ˜ŠπŸ‡³πŸ‡΅πŸ˜Š#karma #fullcircle
