Lots of exciting news at the virabrations project.’s headquarters!
Here’s what’s been happening: A few weeks ago, we made it over the $1,000 mark due to generous donations and support from friends, family, neighbors, strangers, and donation boxes which we have placed in numerous businesses in Germany. Our first event, the Gemeinschaftlichen Satsang, was a mind expanding experience filled with kirtan, yoga, meditation, organic / vegan food, and positive vibrations. The location was superb, thanks to Naturgarten Schönegge, and the sun shone down as we danced in the fields with Monika Althaus. Our second event, Filmnacht Unter den Sternen, was cancelled (twice!) due to unfavorable weather conditions but we were not distraught as we know that the universe works in mysterious ways. The film night will be rescheduled for late summer. Finally, two wonderful people, Craig and Karia Lanken, created an uplifting and magnificent party at their house this last weekend with a silent auction whose proceeds were donated to the virabrations project. , raising around $500! The auction was filed with exquisite art created by Kelly’s late stepdad, Jimmy Shambo, and donated by her angelic mother, Dorrie Shambo. Vintage T-Shirts and Albums were donated by Karia’s marvelous mama, Micki.
