About

Taking a life of spirit into the marketplace

I started my store in 2018 as a way to bring my spiritual life into the marketplace. The items you see in my store are all my creations and spring from my experience, training, and understanding.

I am fortunate to have an eclectic spiritual background to draw from! Raised in the Lutheran (Protestant Christian) Church, I later immersed myself in the study and practice of Buddhism. I was ordained as a lay Dharma teacher and later as a monastic. A masters degree in Buddhist Studies kept my brain cells happy, while numerous meditation retreats kept them calm! Subsequently, I followed the path of Advaita Vedanta for a few years. I finally landed in a contemporary spiritual path called the Diamond Approach.

Because I have had the good fortune to be in several different spiritual traditions and to study with reputable teachers in all those traditions, I bring an authenticity and groundedness to my designs. It gives me pleasure to add my own creative flair to the things I make, but they also have a solidity that belies the millennia of history behind them.

It's also been my good fortune to travel this beautiful planet. This has brought me into contact with the huge diversity of ways in which people connect with spirit. In my travels, I often purchase items that speak to me of the life of spirit. Some of these I include in my designs. All of them inspire me!

My aspiration is to support lives in spirit, so I keep my designs priced reasonably. I use mostly natural materials so that the connection to our environment is alive and strong. Each item is lovingly made by hand in my 150-year-old log cabin set in rural South Carolina. Income from my sales support my spiritual work, attending teachings and retreats. This, in turn, inspires my creativity!
