The Gift-Economy House of Kelowna- Project Family Room
"Once in a while you are given an incredible opportunity to really make a difference in one family's life," said a group of volunteers in a small Canadian town of Kelowna. Just like a popular reality TV show, their idea was to demolish and then rebuild a new house -- yes, a whole new house! -- for an amazing family of nine in their community. There was only one caveat: it was 100% community funded! That's right. 45 contractors, hundreds of volunteers, and a whole lot of love. Watch the news clip about the demolition and the follow-up video of what happened on Dec 11, when the family actually moved in!

We started the Gratitude Dance out of moment of celebration at a coffee shop in Victoria, BC while writing our book on Manifesting Awesomeness. Out of this little jig came the idea to film it and put it on Youtube. Little did we know that it was just the beginning of our journey of understanding the power of gratitude and the power it has had on our lives.
We are Matthew Ashdown and Brad Morris, known globally as "The GratiDudes" (www.theGratiDudes.com)...thanks to a guy who gifted us with this name. We are the originators of the silly Gratitude Dance that's spreading across the world!
Be grateful and have some fun.
Every morning when you wake up, follow this three step process:
#1. Write down what you're grateful for at that moment.
#2. Watch the Video
#3. DO THE DANCE!
Spread the dance to everyone you know and care about, just by clicking on the "SHARE" button below the video.

Sexual desire is one of the most powerful forces in our lives. When repressed or expressed inappropriately, it can create problems-but when celebrated in a loving relationship, it can take you to the heights of sexual ecstasy and emotional fulfillment.
All the different types of relationships give us the opportunity for personal development.
The suggestion of Karma in a relationship is not a pleasurable thought, no matter how it is manifesting in one's life; but powerful relationships, whether good or bad, almost certainly have a Karmic underlay to them.
In a Karmic relationship, the lessons that we have to learn from each other can be as varied as life itself. One may be certain however, that the lesson will be deep, personal and will demand inner strength.
When we experience the Karma involved in a relationship, we tend to find ourselves feeling without control over the circumstances and events, and at a loss of how to act and react to those situations. It is our belief, that while all Soulmate connections are Karmic, but not all Karmic relationships involve Soulmates.
As a general rule, the Karmic model is only completely understood with clarity, AFTER the lesson is learned. Karmic relationships are valuable gifts that can facilitate us on our spiritual journey. This can only occur however, if we're ready to let go of the Ego.
So don't dread that all Karmic love relationships have to be demanding and complicated. As we choose to be more mindful, we can transform negative patterns by choosing more conscious and loving behaviors.
We can convert Karma into Dharma though the alchemy of our desires into our Intentions.
Humanity Healing is sharing a series of free classes and workshops on Karmic and other types of Soul Relationships.

I created this video to bring us together. I used purple. Alexandra reminded me about the color. Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. Purple is a good color to use in meditation.
Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Most children love the color purple. Purple is the color most favored by artists. Thursday's color is purple.
Here are the words to the song:
Come together for a balancing of our lives
Come together we can more than simply survive
When the marriage ends long lost friends
And kids that are often confused
Invite your soul to take control
And taste what a family can do
Come together for a balancing of our spirit
Come together we can close our eyes to reveal it
With the elements malcontents
And thoughts that are floating outside
Its time to smile and reconcile
The words that are easy to find
Mediate together we create
A place for us thats better than we started
Grow as one you lead I follow we run
We climb together stronger than we used to
Come together for a balancing of our hearts
Come together its a time for us to start
Let us all begin all join in
Learn to be people of peace
Walk together walkin our own road
In parallel unity
Come together its a powerful way of life
Come together eliminate the strife
If youre ready to start start right now
Slow down the pace and listen
Take my hand Im right beside you
Allow the bond to deepen
