Oh, dear friends!
I am tremendously excited to share with you a most special project in honor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama's upcoming visit to Birmingham, Alabama in October. Actually, I am rather stunned that we got the green light from the Birmingham Mayor's office on Monday...but we did. To be honest, this project is so much bigger than me that I have no idea what it actually even is and I am curious to see how it will unfold.
The basic idea of The Happy Flag Project is to celebrate His Holiness and this amazing event by blanketing the city of Birmingham and its many civil rights sites in handmade prayer flags which you will send in from all over the world. I grew up in Alabama and have had a long running interest in Tibet and Buddhism. I am so grateful and deeply honored to have the opportunity to be a part of such a holy and sacred creativity project and to work on it with my mom.
Please visit the website and also follow along on the Facebook page The Happy Flag Project. I can't wait to see the magical prayer flag creations you will make. Also, please consider hosting a prayer flag making workshop in your city and we will post it on the site. Share this with your friends. We welcome your feedback, thoughts, ideas and interaction on this very special adventure. It will be better if we do it together! Be a part of the love! And thank you.
