Friday, Nov 16, 2012 Mosaic Project – Part 9

Last night we had our mosaic dedication as part of the Shops at West End Chatsworth ‘Tis the Season Holiday Event. Each participant was given a white candle and a long-stemmed rose as we formed a half-circle around Lisbeth and the mosaic. Marydale described how the project came about, relating how she’d been thinking one morning in class that she really needed to do something about the front ledge, when Lisbeth came up to her after class and said, “So, what are we going to do about that front ledge?” From there, the project took shape quickly.

Marydale got permission from the building owner to proceed and Lisbeth began work on the mosaic right away with some items she had on hand. Donations of funds and materials started pouring in from students and friends, and the rest is history. The final touch, completed shortly before the dedication, was to paint the front and sides of the ledge black, as well as the ceiling above it, to dramatically offset the mosaic and absorb any negative energy in and around the studio.

Surrounded by the light of our flickering candles, Marydale honored Lisbeth for her work and thanked the members of our community for their participation in the project. One by one, we expressed our gratitude to Lisbeth in person and gave her our roses until she held a full bouquet. This dedication was the culmination of a group effort to beautify the studio and the West End of Devonshire, and we hope that all of you in the Param Yoga community will take a moment to admire and enjoy it whenever you visit our studio. Namaste.
