I have opened A PLACE TO B studio based on my dream of uniting several diciplines in one large family-like unit. Many said it couldn't be done. It's done!!!
We have Martial artists and dancers, musicians, healers and poets who are creatively working together to bring the best for their students. Everyone gets along and with outmost respect they help each other grow.
I am trying very hard to promote and sponsor low income families and children who otherwise would and could not have the opportunity to learn and enjoy what most do and have in Boulder. I've been told to be a business woman first and a giver second. That's never been my way and through the years I have learned that it feels better to give than to receive. The kids' smiles and enthusiasm is a great motivator in today's tough economic times. I encourage many in thie community to reach deep and see how much they can help others who do not have much. The smiles are more rewarding that any material gain in the world!
I am a simple person who wishes for more peace, love and understanding, at least here, at home. It all starts small, before we can make it big.
I encourage a non competitive, non violent atmosphere and attitude.
I am also a writer. I have a few books published. Easy to get hold of and buy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Boulder Bookstore or others.
I am a wife, a mother and a decent, giving and forgiving person, with enough degrees to feel confidant that a career does not life make.
I encourage families in our community to seek the gentle aproach in life and make it easier on their fellow humans by having more fun and getting more commited to one another.
Visist our studio, stay a while, relax, observe or try out a few free introductory classes..
Something will catch your fancy, I am certain.
Remember to have fun and sperad love.
Good t hear from you. I enjoyed the pictures of your facility. How old are the kids now, Eve looks all grown up.
Nice job on achieving such diversity at your place, no easy task. I read one of your comments concerning providing services to low income families. We also have a "charity/scholarship" program that we call "Gratitude through Giving". It has been a challenge raising money for it. we're currently funding the training for one "special needs" boy, but getting donations isn't all that easy. if everyone in the membership gave 2 dollars a month we could cover the costs for one kid for a year. But even getting that is tough. The effort is worth it, hang in there.
The school over here is doing ok. We've been stable for a couple years now. The current economy isn't helping out, martial arts is still considered to be a luxury item. When times are hard, people will cut karate before they cut cable.
In general we're all happy and healthy, how about you??
