Meditation, Art, Charity and Cakes...

mary's dinner clubsLast weekend saw yet another unusual yet highly successful mix of events: A pranic healing prosperity meditation, an art exhibit and a charity afternoon tea.
 
Friday’s pranic healing prosperity meditation was simply beautiful and I was honoured to get to host it! It was lead by Chiara Perfetti who was visiting from Greece to give a pranic healing course at Glorious Cycles.

Thought for Today - Is Your Way of Thinking Difficult?

When you always think of things being impossible, difficult or complicated you can't enjoy what is given or accept without complaining what is just now happening in your life. Life is not difficult, your way of thinking is and it all may change when you dare to change your mind.

The beauty of Austrians, their cakes, their photography

Sunday’s event was created ‘on a whim’ when a fellow Austrian told me she wanted to launch her photography business Conny Kasparis Photgraphy specializing in people photography and natural portraits. We came up with a ‘plan’ right there and then. She was only free on Sundays, we both like baking Austrian cakes... The event ‘Austrian Kaffee & Kuchen with a complimentary portrait by Conny Kasparis’ was born.

Astrology and pumpkins for Halloween

What an amazing variety of events we got to enjoy this weekend - and yes, I do mean ‘we’ as several guests actually attended two events and one couple even all three - an introduction to astrology, a cocktail party and clothes shopping and an Austrian coffee and cake afternoon with a free portrait.  That’s in part thanks to my new home - super spacious and yet cosy. So perfect – people feel right at home!
 
We thus kicked off the weekend with Friday’s Introduction to Astrology with Al Davidian - an event which had seen quite a few bookings from the very beginning  - it appears to be a topic that continuous to have many wonder about how it actually ‘works’. So much so, that despite the early 7:30 start, everybody was right on time and literally jumped for a spot on my big couches the moment I suggested we settled down.

New friends, new food and new clothes

On Friday we experimented with yet a new combination - and it turned out to be perfect. Julie Bond from the used clothing shop The Wardrobe brought a selection of items from her huge shop in Episkopi and we gathered over nibbles and sparkling wine.
 
I had left the times flexible and guests arrived throughout the evening. Most of them even stopping at the clothes rack before taking a sip of their welcome drink - an all time favourite that has become a tradition at Mary’s - dry sparkling wine with a drop of passion fruit syrup. The whole evening felt more like a cocktail party, like a girls’ night out shopping.

Thought for Today - You Are The Force Behind Your Accomplishments

You are the force behind all what you accomplish in this world but do you think you act enough. Are you satisfied about what you do or have? Talking about all the things you want to do doesn't make them happen.

Freeing your Voice at Mary's Dinner Club

 

Last Saturday’s ‘Free your voice’ event with journalist and jazz singer Sarah Fenwick had us not only relaxed over delicious food, but also over correct breathing. We were given an introduction to the role nerves, breathing and the diaphragm play when we are talking/getting ready to talk/or are simply in front of people.
 
I had been looking really forward to welcoming this particular group of guests as I had a feeling they’d all get on especially well - and I was right. All of them were more or less regulars at Mary’s and yet had never managed to meet. And meet they did - over lots of laughter and discoveries of things in common. As always the different nationalities - British, Finnish, Russian and Cypriot - added for extra stories, anecdotes and jokes and the atmosphere was amiable and fun.
