Mindfulness in Real Life

Mindfulness in Real Life

"Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries." ~Dalai Lama
Hello Onikas community, Jonnyka here. As I prepare for our first mindfulness event at Solid Gold this weekend, I've been struck by several realizations. The first being it is wonderful to have my previous world and area of study (mind/body medicine and clinical psychology) merge with our Onikas brand. The second is that a mindful practice is no longer a luxury or an "add-on" to life activities, it is now a necessity. Here's a little more background on these realizations...

I first discovered the work of Toronto based yogi Bryonie Wise from an Elephant Journal article a while back. Her words rang so true that I started following her on IG (you should too - @heart_roars) and immediately started grooving on her images as well as the poignancy of her words.

There's a lot of history in these textures...

Hello everyone, Jonnyka here!  Last weekend my hubby Carmen and I went to the amazing Contemporary Museum at Laguna Gloria in Austin to shoot our new ponchos.  It was a beautiful sunny Texas day and my artist husband played staff photographer and myself the model. The reality is that the best photos taken were the gorgeous product shots that revealed simple textures and details. In the midst of our shoot Carmen became super inspired by the way each product looked against the natural surroundings. And seriously, it does not get much better than this museum, a beautiful partly indoor, partly outdoor, sculpture park.  Austinites - if you have not been recently, run-- don't walk --as it is an art-filled oasis!
