I am filled with special gratitude at this time of year for the safe, loving birth of my new grandson Omid, meaning “hope” in Farsi. Omid was born November 21st, and from the start exuded calm sweetness–I have a new meditation partner. 🙂 May all babies be brought into the world in a loving, gentle way, and may all mamas survive birth and all babies thrive. Let’s together create this possibility as a human right, one of the goals of my organization’s Healthy, Compassionate Birthing network working in remote and indigenous global communities (www.globalforceforhealing.org).
Tis the season of hope for a different–and better-tomorrow for our entire global family, a future of peace, social justice, acceptance of others’ differences, and love for all. Global Force for Healing exists for this purpose, and we have a natural kinship with fellow OWL members. We welcome your engagement in all forms–volunteering, connecting us to aligned organizations or individuals, and contributing financially (tax deductible in the US).
Please visit our website to sign up for our periodic newsletter or to make a donation. Feel free to email me via the OWL community or directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to share Omid’s picture and birth story, and would be honored to hear yours!
Warmest blessings at this season of light and love, Kay
