A few years ago I had the idea of starting something called the Lovely Hearts Club. I was an actress living in Los Angeles, teaching yoga and acting in commercials to pay the bills. I also had the idea of opening a yoga studio called Lovely Hearts Yoga. In the end, life had a way of going its own way. I never opened the yoga studio. My acting career took off and I stopped teaching classes. And the Lovely Hearts Club? Well, it sat on the proverbial shelf. I never quite knew what to do with it.
The one thing I knew was that I didn’t want the idea of Lovely Hearts to simply fade away, like so many ideas that do. I’ve let things pass or fade in the past and never really regretted it, but sometimes an idea sticks and doesn’t want to just fade. So the Lovely Hearts Club just sat and waited for the right time.
Then I had a daughter and things clicked into place. Perspectives changed, thoughts shifted, and I here I am with a toddler. Being a mother made me revisit the idea of creating a community of like-minded people who are interested in fostering peace, raising peacemakers, being mindful in our daily lives, being compassionate with ourselves and others, practicing tolerance and being stewards of the planet. My wish is to share these practices with as many people as possible and be the change I want to see in the world.
In Light and Love,
