Last Saturday we went to Santih, a beautiful yoga space in north Lisbon. Sofia, Reinaldo, Nina, Anabela and David made dolls in the most relaxing space we have been so far. We made 8 dolls and meditated under candle light, it was wonderful!
We also read the picture books together and they bought three books.
‘It was so cool to fill in cloth dolls. It took me to my childhood.’
‘Making the doll and giving it life was inspiring. I felt I was contributing to the connection and that we are all one. In my meditation, I felt the pulse of my heart in my fingers, as if my pulse were merged with the doll’s heart. I wish this doll can bring hope for who receive it’
‘I liked to share this moment with the group.’
‘It was spectacular, a true experience full of creativity.’
‘Your project touches my heart … your dedication to this seemingly simple dream but actually of great size and depth. I wish more souls may awaken and be able to see beyond the execution of simple dolls.’
‘An opportunity to participate in a project that coincides with what I also seek through my work as a therapist, which is to help people connect with themselves through love.’
‘In fact I was not only contributing for someone else to dream and to love again, I was actually doing it to myself too… and that is where the magic of this workshop lies, which I summarize in this sentence: first fill your dreams with a heart, only then you will be able to make someone else dream …’
Sofia is a lovely woman who opened her space for the dolls, I hope we can make more dolls together in the future. Thank you so much for Sofia and everybody who came over and for Sandra and Anabela who donated their pillows full of dreams for the project, thank you!
