We Have Missed You!

Today like every other day
We wake up empty and scared.
Don’t open the door of your study
And begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument.
Let the beauty we love be what we do
There are hundreds of way to kneel
And kiss the earth.

Rumi

Happy Holidays LoveJoyers!

The LJ Team has missed you all so much.

Over the past few months, we have taken a brief hiatus from workshops to focus on strengthening our hearts, minds, bodies and souls with the intention of being able to hold it down even more once we start offering services to the community once again. We apologize for the lack of notification, but the shift came about naturally due to the various  individual situations the Universe presented to the members of the LOVEJOY team.

Stay plugged in for updates.

Until then, stay warm & enjoy the holiday season!

Love & Light,

the LJ team

JUNE 10 @ HIWA, CERRITOS | LOVEJOY Presents CYPHER

Hello Friends,

As many of you may or may not know, LOVEJOY is a new community organization started by three women from Cerritos, who want to make change at the local level by inspiring the hearts, minds, and spirits of the community through the expressive and holistic arts.

Currently, we use whatever resources we have available to us to host affordable workshops, which means using our living room as our home base. OUR GOAL is to have a physical community center in the near future.

We hope you can come and support our cause because our LOVEJOY Center is really for all of you. We envision it to be a space that every single one of you can use to host your own events, to come and share your talents, to get inspired, to heal, to help transform the world around us.

IN ESSENCE, LOVEJOY IS ALL OF US. LOVEJOY IS THE COMMUNITY AS ONE.

The evening will be full of good music, good vibes, and good people all for an awesome cause! Not to mention, we will be celebrating the birthdays of two wonderful people, Arezo Tehranirad and Daniel Siriban!

We hope to share in this historic event with you!

❤ the LJ Fam

Now is the Time

Words to reflect upon.

——–

Now is the Time by Hafiz

Now is the time to know
That all that you do is sacred.

Now, why not consider
A lasting truce with yourself and God.

Now is the time to understand
That all your ideas of right and wrong
Were just a child’s training wheels
To be laid aside
When you finally live
With veracity
And love.

Hafiz is a divine envoy
Whom the Beloved
Has written a holy message upon.

My dear, please tell me,
Why do you still
Throw sticks at your heart
And God?

What is it in that sweet voice inside
That incites you to fear?

Now is the time for the world to know
That every thought and action is sacred.

This is the time
For you to compute the impossibility
That there is anything
But Grace.

Now is the season to know
That everything you do
Is sacred.

LOVEJOY Declares February “Heart Chakra Month”!

Forget Valentine’s Day.  Nothing wrong with sharing love, but when a national holiday is declared on faulty grounds (no romantic elements can be found in the historical biographies of the martyrs celebrated on this day) LoveJoy thinks it is time we reclaim this day (and why not the whole month?) and turn it into a time where “love” is not measured by the size or dollar value of a gift.

In honor of the dis-honor of Valentine’s Day, LoveJoy has decided to declare the entire month of February as “Heart Chakra Month”.  The fourth chakra, the heart chakra, rests in the center of the chakra system, at the core of our spirit. We cannot think of a better way to celebrate love, self-love, to be more precise, than to give back to ourselves by making time for our spirits to be and breathe.  LoveJoy knows too well that this time is rare.  Sometimes we are too busy with work, school, and taking care of others that we forget to take care of ourselves.  This is why we wanted to offer you opportunities to do exactly this during Heart Chakra Month (February).

Hope you can make it to one of our workshops!
