A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching.

Warriors at Ease receives Smithsonian award from Alec and Hilari Baldwin | sivanandabahamas.org

Warriors at Ease Receives Smithsonian Award

Congratulations! On October 29, Warriors at Ease received an award from the Smithsonian Institution as part of the opening gala for the new “Yoga: The Art of Transformation” exhibit.

We are happy for them — and proud to be hosting the Warriors at Ease training in March 2014.

Molly Asebey-Birkholm (Madhavi), co-founder of Warriors at Ease

Here is the email co-founder Molly Asebey-Birkholm (Madhavi) sent to us to share the news:

Dearest friends,

I wanted to share a moment of gratitude with all of you who have been supporters of Warriors at Ease. Last Thursday, Warriors at Ease (represented by co-founder Robin Carnes) received an award from the Smithsonian Institution as part of the opening gala for the new “Yoga: The Art of Transformation Exhibit.” It was a complete surprise when we heard we were receiving the award.

At the awards, Robin told the story of Warriors at Ease and read an excerpt from an email from a service member who came through the yoga and meditation program at DHCC. Once redeployed in Kandahar, he set up a meditation room there and played the iRest Yoga Nidra CD for his fellow soldiers. Even the toughest ones ‘surrendered’ to it.

This work could have never been possible with all of you who have supported our efforts. We love you and are more determined than ever to keep bringing yoga and meditation to the military…. let’s take the work around the world!

With peace, love and so much gratitude,
Molly

P.S. Here is a picture of Robin receiving the award from Alec and Hilarii Baldwin! We don’t have many moments of fame here at Warriors at Ease so we will enjoy this one…. and we gratefully share the moment with you because you made it happen too.
