The Women in Spiti Valley who are Saving the Snow Leopard

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

The Women in Spiti Valley who are Saving the Snow Leopard

In the Spitian language, "shen" means snow leopard. Located in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, Spiti Valley is one of the few remaining places on earth where snow leopards can be found. Since 2013, women from two of the region's villages have been working with the Nature Conservation Foundation (NCF) to help protect this endangered species. Known as Project SHEN, the women engage in community development and conservation efforts, and showcase their handicraft skills by creating handmade items such as stationary and jewelry that is sold locally and online. The project has brought about dramatic changes in the lives of the women, as they gain greater independence and self-sufficiency, while making a difference to their community and its wildlife. "They are the custodians of their pastures and mountains," says Kulbhushan Suryawanshi. { read more }

What Activists Can Learn From Grace Lee Boggs

I think we have to get rid of the idea that protest will bring about change. We need to do visionary organizing.

- Grace Lee Boggs -

What Activists Can Learn From Grace Lee Boggs

With the need for social change in countries all around the world, it is easy to understand how "protest fatigue" can set in. However, veteran activists can offer some advice on how to stay in it for the long haul of bringing about a better world. Grace Lee Boggs was one such lifelong activist until she passed away in 2015 at the age of 100. She lived and breathed her truth and believed that tending gardens, caring for the self, and caring for others were ways to nourish activism. In a sometimes harsh world, these simple acts of kindness end up restoring the energy needed to carry on the hard work of social change. Read on to see how coming alive mindfully, connecting to others and practicing a caring attitude will sustain activism just as it did for Grace--maybe to the ripe age of 100. { read more }

Be The Change

When you feel overwhelmed by the negative that you see in the world and the need for change, take a moment to do something kind for someone nearby and watch them smile. Let this moment really sink in and be the food that your soul needs to carry on.

A Sacred Steward of Honey Bees

 
Debra Roberts is a sacred steward of honey bees. She is one of an increasing number of women who care for bees without chemicals or toxic substances and with thankfulness, nurturing, and respect. Debra likens the ways in which she relates to bees as similar to the practices of great spiritual traditions: being calm, focused, and clear in your intent, slow and smooth in your movements, feeling grateful, and approaching others with respect. In this Filiz Telek short video, Holy Bee, Debra discusses the spiritual practice of beekeeping.

Best Practices for Creating Instagram Ads in MailChimp

Designing your Instagram ads in MailChimp is the same experience you already know and love from your email and Facebook ad campaigns. And when you build Instagram ads in MailChimp, you can use your list to find similar people to your existing subscribers. We'll walk you through how to select a pre-built segment or create one of your own to target the right audience.
