Season's Greetings From Sam and Kevin
Wishing you a joyous holiday Season
December 2006

We hope this message finds you enjoying the stillness of winter and the warmth of the holiday season.

In the dark winter months this season offers us all the opportunity to reach deep within ourselves to bring forth the luminosity and generosity of the human spirit. Whether you are sharing time with friends and family or if you find yourself alone this holiday season, we wish you deep abiding peace filled with gratitude for the incredible gift of being alive.

May the new year bring you joy, vital health and an overiding sense of purpose and empowerment. We both feel so blessed to live here and to be a part of your lives.

Winter Solstice Benefit Raised $1300

On the winter solstice, Dec. 21st, we held a special fundraising event for Special Olympics Alaska. We offered 15 minute restorative "winter solstice" treatments all day 9-6 PM in exchange for open donations. We treated over 40 people who collectively donated $1300 dollars for the local Mat- Su Special Olympics Alaska Program. It was really fun! Everybody received a GREAT treatment and donated generously. It was an exhilarating day and a great reminder of what an incredible community we live in. Thank you so much to everyone who braved the snow storm to participate! For those who were not able to make it or didn't know about this event, no worries, we will surely hold this event again!

Instead, they allow you to purchase much needed, life saving medical support and agricultural supplies to families and communities in third world countries-in honor of your friend or loved one. They are highly reputable organizations and are known for their exceptionally efficient use of program funds.

The Smile Train

In the December 15th "Compass" column, the Anchorage Daily News published an article written by valley resident, Helene Antel. She wrote a heartfelt and deeply personal call to all of us during this holiday season. With her permission we have made it available to you with the excerpt and link below:

"...I would like to celebrate the season in the true spirit of giving. If we celebrate a different kind of holiday, if we resist the hype and commercialism, we can work miracles..." Click Here for the Full Article
