At Casa Dumetz tasting room in Los Alamos the wine is as fresh and charming as the hostess herself. Sonja greets every person who enters as if they are a long lost friend, and this beautiful example of what being a “hostess” is about was the scene I was invited into when I arrived on a Friday evening to be the speaker in her monthly speaker series.
The day was a tough one emotionally- everyone having just found out the news of the events in Aurora, Colorado. What followed was an incredibly connected, and positive evening in the light and feel good setting of the tasting room.
I shared my own story of being on a mission of service fueled by my own shocking experience at 9/11 and how day by day after I was inspired to serve in a myriad of ways to assist life to the best of my ability. I took them on a journey across country from New York, to Malibu, and then to El Salvador, India, Brazil, and Peru. We stopped off briefly in Napa from time to time.
I also shared in brief the making and use of the Breathe Love CD sets and am still feeling thankful at the level of engagement of the people in the room and their desire to go home and put the CD’s to use for eliciting relaxation response and a positive emotional response.
Now I am inspired to do more of these types of events! It was so lovely to relax on an evening in a connected setting sipping on great wines, keeping great company, and sharing about positive solution oriented living.
Big thanks to Sonja Magdevski for the invitation- and a big recommendation to all to stop in at her tasting room in Los Alamos! (Open Friday-Sunday)
