Have a Compassionate New Year
I love the new year, especially our collective emphasis on redefining and refining our lives. Sometimes it can be challenging to slow down amidst the onward and upwards momentum of this time and I turn to my yoga practice with the intention of staying grounded. Eating simply also helps, as does creating a sacred space in my home in which to feel at ease.

I found plenty of visual inspiration to create a sacred space at The Art of Compassion, a new art gallery / performing venue nestled in the heart of downtown on Richard's and Hastings. The small yet spacious, minimalist space features authentic Tibetan Thangkas, mandalas and other divine art.

If you allow yourself to be lured in by the subtle scent of incense and warmth, you will enjoy a few moments of peace, marveling at the intricacy, iridescence and depth of each painting. You may also want to take one home.
