All items returned to us will be donated to a local women’s shelter, where the pieces will be used in mindfulness and meditation workshops. For example, the beads will be restrung for the woman to wear and remind them of their new intentions. They will also use the beads to learn the benefits and healing of japa meditation.
Our first partner in this initiative is Vancouver Women’s Health Collective, a non-profit organization helping self-identified women foster health, wellness and equity through feminist approaches to advocacy, shared knowledge and low-barrier programs and services. If you know of an organization that could benefit from this program, please contact us.
