Yes.  You're here.

The Living Home is both a gift and a thank you.  It's whole-hearted reciprocation for this international community, the diverse inspiration you provide, and the warmth you create in your homes.  If there's anything this world needs to thrive, it's families that wake to love, presence and nourishment.  In that image, there's so much hope.  

You provide that, everyday, in a million ways no one will ever even know about.  We're grateful.  {consider this a hug}

Here's how we'll gather...

Like any standing tea date, it's kind of a pop-in thing.  You'll come by, and there's treats here, on this page, on Pinterest and in the Private Facebook Group.  We'll sink deeply into our time together.  We will notice things that change us, and our homes will shift.  Sometimes there will be tangents, and someone will go off to Paris.  Then they'll come back.  We'll make space for that - this is real life, with families, after all.  Others will be inspired to make more goodies and bring them to the table.  New friends will come over time.  At home, angels will begin meeting, hearthside.  Or on your bathroom counter, as love letters from the kids.  Your partner will appear, smiling, in fields of gratitude.  Spirit's breathe will leave smokey stains above the stove.  Meanwhile, we'll be serving up more.  Holding more conversations, toting playsheets and journal prompts and sketched meditations with promises of profound practice and greenery.  Each of our homes will host new memories, new traditions, and old loves in new forms.  Under each roof, all will be nourished, much will be tried, and healing will swirl,  inviting itself in, easing past our thresholds, unable to resist the spaces we create.

May it be so.

xx, Maya, David, Brian & Robyn

*Grace Notes*

-We are a global community, so everyone here is altogether different.  We have different contexts for every aspect of our lives, and bring diverse, and even contrasting choice points, concerns, mentors and spirituality to our parenting and teaching.  Please come to the table in kindness, listening + sharing to learn {not to agree or disagree}.

 -All topics will be relevant thru out the year, as they become meaningful to you.  

-Please save advice for those who ask for it, and refrain otherwise.  Options and alternatives from your own experience are always lovely, and generous. 

-Share yourself and your resources freely.  If you have a relevant business, wonderful.  We want your blessings here.  Feel free to share with a *single* photograph + link for each offering.  Multiple offerings are fine, but only one per week, please, and only if you are fully engaged in the conversation.

 *Home Tours + Interviews

 are a generous gift from you to the Whole.  Each week we'll post a specific prompt & questions in the FB group.  Like, "From bathroom to healing waters...What are your bathing rituals?  How do you cleanse emotional residue?  How do you use water to create calm?  What bath + bed rhythms work best for your kids? What does sanctuary look like?"  You'll have a chance to share images of your home or other favorite spaces, and give answers.
