R.A.I.N. is a four-step practice that helps us recognize our emotions so we can respond, not react, to challenging situations. It can assist in easing emotional confusion and suffering. Sharon Salzburg and Tara Brach are a few of my favorite meditation teachers that teach R.A.I.N.
The jewelry I create has the potential to represent something bigger than itself. A person, a memory, a future, a commitment, an honoring, an intention. A tangible reminder of where we have been in life and where we want to go. A symbol of the story we want to tell and the intentions we are celebrating.
