Zen frees the mind of clutter to accommodate a greater level of awareness. Its value lies in its simplicity ~ an ever-present reminder that less is more.

So too in our surroundings.

As we clear our homes of unnecessary clutter, we become more awake and aware.  We recognize and strengthen our connection to the truth within.

With fewer distractions, even the most mundane task or object offers insight.

As we restore balance and harmony to our living spaces, we feel a greater sense of serenity, peace, and tranquility within.

As we pare down our possessions, our home becomes an oasis, a place of repose, a refuge, a sanctuary . . . far from the maddening crowd.

We create space for greater openness and calm ~ a place where we can more easily find balance and peace of mind.

As we mindfully choose how to fill our rooms, we celebrate life ~ through invigorating colors, tactile textures, and savory scents.  Gratitude surfaces,  circulating and mingling with enticing aromas.

We relax in rooms awash in invigorating light and objects of natural beauty ~ a bright red rose, a lush green potted plant, a lively bouquet of yellow daisies,  warm candles emitting spicy scents with each flicker.

Our spirits dance and soar as we walk through the door . . . We’re HOME!

Aah . . . that’s better.
