Holistic Me Fundraiser
A big thank you from our hearts to yours for the generous contributions y'all made to our Holistic Me fundraiser last month. We raised just over $5,000 in 3 weeks. Thank you all for your support! 

If you didn't get to donate during the campaign, you can still donate at www.hlfinc.org. Just use the Donate Now button in the upper right-hand corner. :)

Also, check out this great video our boy Larry created for the campaign. It's a great encapsulation of our work with the students in our afterschool program.



New Program at Homeless Shelter
We're super excited and grateful to be starting up a new weekly program at the Weinberg Housing Resource Center. Please send these folks your love and thoughts!

Recent Retreats: The Odyssey School & 7 Oaks
We were honored to bring our work to the Odyssey School here in Baltimore. We joined the kids for 3 days of mindfulness exercises, and by the end of the program, the students were leading each other in the exercises. On the last day, one of the students even volunteered at a school-wide assembly to lead everyone through the stress breath!

We also recently returned from a workshop at 7 Oaks Retreat Center with John Hunter. Big thanks go out to Maria Kluge for setting us up for the weekend.

The top photo below is from the Odyssey School and the bottom photo from the 7 Oaks retreat.

We're offering a retreat in conjunction with the sweet Sharon Salzberg, co-founder of the Insight Meditation Society, in just 2 weeks on February 13-15 at the Garrison Institute. For more information & to sign up, click here.
