"In each picture is a whole lifetime imprisoned, a whole lifetime of fears, doubts, hopes, and joys. Whither is this lifetime tending? What is the message of the competent artist? … To harmonize the whole is the task of art." - Wassily Kandinsky
Hello, thank you for taking the time... We are creating an artisan streetwear T-shirts brand with original hand-drawn graphics and contemporary spiritual themes to fund raise for a project to help Refugees rehabilitate and heal.
Our range has come from a deep reflective and mindfulness process over the last 15 years – a catalyst of a spiritual awakening and developing. I believe that art is a spiritual practice and can help us move through life's challenges.
Here are a couple of examples:
Contemplation is a vital part of our evolution as a species. It is integral to spiritual and emotional development. We are the only species with the capacity to self reflect. If I hadn’t spent time contemplating I would still be making the same mistakes over and over. As well as remaining in poverty consciousness. It’s such a wonderful gift. We all have it!
Doubt everything is a teaching of the Buddha. It refers to not accepting everything as truth and to using your own heart and mind to discern your beliefs about life. I like this because it promotes healthy skepticism living on blind faith takes away your personal power! Yes promotion Yes promotion
We are raising funds to get the business of the ground. $10,000 will give us enough to purchase 500 t-shirts and have them printed, so we can present them to retail stores, promote them with giveaways and begin the process of getting our label 'out there'.
I am a holistic counselor, Author, mindfulness coach and artist (Karma Tops). My dharma is to be of service to others (with discernment) and overcome hindrances to kindness and compassion.My karma work is to help people overcome depression and anxiety and spiritual crisis through mindfulness counseling. I am grateful that I have been given this gift and feel very rewarded when I see people growing and overcoming life’s challenges.
I am aiming to create a healing retreat to help refugees and women in need to rehabilitate into a new life path, as I feel there is a great need for this type of space. This is why I began Karma Tops – from a deep yearning and despair to do more. take a look here:
Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge we have with our plan is bureaucratic process of developing and sustaining a service that is using healing modalities outside the mainstream structures. This is however achievable and viable as we are using a mindfulness model that shows great success in the Us and Europe that we have also been practicing here with excellent results.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
