Tomorrow is the official start of Winter, marked by the Winter Solstice, otherwise known as the darkest day of the year (sunlight-wise). You know what that means? From that point forward, our days get lighter and brighter!
This transition from dark into light is a perfect time to reflect on where we’ve been, where we’re going, and what we can bring light to.
For OM Sanctuary, 2013 was a year of discovery and movement. We overcame challenges, and we learned and accomplished so many things that are indeed lighting up the horizon for OM Sanctuary!
On Friday, December 13th, at our What Dreams May Come event, we honored and celebrated all those who have supported OM Sanctuary in its growth and development this year. We couldn’t have gotten as far as we have without the hard work and generosity of our volunteers, donors, supporters, and staff. Gratitude abounds!
During the reception, we were also delighted to meet fellow members of the Asheville community who joined us for the evening. Shelli Stanback, OM Sanctuary’s founder and CEO, then spoke about the progress OM Sanctuary has made in its first 3 years and set the stage for all that is to come for 2014.
We at OM Sanctuary are particularly grateful to the evening’s guest speaker, Ozioma Egwuonwu, Founder of BurnBright Lifeworks, Inc., who capped off the evening with a dynamic and inspiring presentation on bringing our dreams to life. (OM Sanctuary then hosted Ozioma’s Success By Design workshop over the weekend.)
As we wrap up the year, including our What Dreams May Come event, and move into the new one, we are taking the time to reflect on the past, share our gratitude, and look to the very bright future – for ourselves individually and collaboratively as part of OM Sanctuary.
We at OM Sanctuary wish you all a warm and peaceful holiday season and a new year full of love and light!
Let’s Light Up the New Year!
