Dear Friends, 

I’ve got a a few special local and regional yoga events on the fast approaching horizon I want to share with you. Lots of interesting yoga venues, both on and off the island…and I’d love your company.

1. Raise it up for PASCON:

Saturday October 22nd, join me at the brand new (and beautiful) White Elephant Village Ballroom for a donation based yoga class, in support of the cancer services Palliative and Supportive Care of Nantucket provides locally, and Breast Cancer Awareness Monthnationally. Your $10 donation will be MATCHED by Nantucket Island Resorts, and all proceeds will go direct to our dear friends at PASCON. Did I mention that the space is beautiful and that they will MATCH your donation? Class will begin at 9:30am and will be 75-minutes long.

2. Yoga’s getting SCARY in Newport!
Halloween Yoga Newport

In the Rhode Island area? Come join ME and the Newport Yogis for a Special Halloween Yoga Fundraiser on October 30th, at the Salvation Cafe. Class will be co-led by myself and fellow Breast Cancer Jedi, Erin Coonan Schmidt. Costumes are optional and prizes will be awarded to most original, funniest, and scariest. Erin is currently living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. She is also still teaching yoga on a regular basis. Can you say “BadAss”? This lady is amazing. 75% of the evenings funds will be donated to Erin and her family, 25% will go towards adjunctive cancer services at the Newport Healing Co-Op. I’m absolutely HONORED to be donating my time and joining Erin’s fight, so if you’re in the area – I’d love to see you come out and support this amazing warrior. More details here.

About the painting: The Urban contemporary style of Craig Anthony Miller has shed another view on the popular deity Lord Ganesh (aka Ganapati). In the past four years, Ganapati: the remover of obstacles and the great lord of success, has become a staple in CAMs paintings. Originally becoming intrigued with the deity after a friends introduction. Out of the many Deities, CAMs connection to Lord Ganesh has become the one image that he still attached to.

Medium: Mixed media, tribal graphic that takes on the inspiration of stained glass. CAM has been painting the image of Lord Ganesh since 2007. It has become a signature of his Brooklyn studio and he has been commissioned numerous times to create the image for personal meditation spaces.

Dimensions: 55″ x 38″ on wood.

Bidding starts at $500 and will commence this evening at 7pm.

About CAM: The art of Brooklyn native, Craig Anthony Miller aka “CAM”, is an exploratory process, mapping shapes into images that repetitively convey messages of strength triumphing over despair. Initially influenced by stained glass art and the street art and graffiti dominating NY’s boroughs, CAM employs his graphic training to create work that explores far, distant lands and tribal warriors stealthily transplanted into layered urban landscapes. For years the ongoing theme known as the “Warrior Within” has since morphed into the popular Hindu Deity, Lord Ganesh, a now major symbolic form of CAM’s work. CAM’s latest incantation of “Be Mindful of Your Ability to Fly” and the term “A Single Dove,” has segued into a new path of “yogic” warriors and the reintroduction of figurative painting in an ever growing popular Yoga community within an urban context. The simple and complex construction of the body is more expressionism over the association /connection to body, mind and spirit.

CAM also has an Etsy store, where you can purchase very cool t-shirts and prints.

By the way, if you missed Electric Love, DJ Pete Ahern’s set is live on Soundcloud. You can download it for free and spread the love with a share or several. Take a listen.

~May all beings be happy and free

Love,

Caitlin
