Hi Everyone, it’s Charles. It has been almost 2 years since Victoria began writing our weekly Newsletter, so it has been awhile since I’ve written to you. AND writing this is bittersweet.
I have decided that this will be Storm Wisdom’s last year. Our current lease is up on May 1, 2021 and I have decided not to renew. Mainly because when I really listen to my internal guidance, another 5 years feels longer than I can imagine or envision for myself.
There is a part of me that wants to have a story about this. Something I could say to justify my choice or decision. A story that, when you lay it all out, makes perfect sense. A story that adds up. But I don’t have that.
Instead I have to trust the energy and my own internal knowing. I know it is right for me. I feel complete.
With that said, I know there is impact. First and foremost to the Storm Wisdom family; Gisela, Millie, Mary Helen, Paul, Victoria, and Stephanie. Most of us have been in this together since the beginning. This represents big changes for all of us. I have no doubt that they will miss their connections with all of you. They have been in service to this beautiful experiment, experience, and community for a long time. They are family to each other (and me!)… but also for many of you.
There are amazing teachers, channels, mediums, leaders and inspirers who host their magical workshops, meditations and events here. They share their unique insights, gifts and messages. All in service of advancing the spiritual awareness and personal growth of this community.
In addition, we represent an amazing body of local artists and makers who offer their art, jewelry, products and gifts here. Some have been here since the beginning. They are part of what makes this space so unique, colorful, and inspiring. I know many have other outlets where they share their creations, and they will continue to manifest and create. Still, we will miss working with them and how they have enriched this community.., just like those who host their events here.
And then there’s YOU! We would not be here if it were not for your love and support. You are the reason all of this has been such a grand adventure. You stimulate our growth both personally and professionally as a business. Thank you for being a part of Storm Wisdom.
Now is time to start planning for the future. We intend to operate “Business as Usual” for the rest of this year. Nothing changes for the events and workshops on our calendar.., and in fact, we will continue to book and add new events right up until the end of 2020.
The same is true in our retail space. Everything remains the same for the rest of this year… 11 months. In the meantime.., I will be figuring out exactly what it means to shut down a business and liquidate. However… that is activity for next year.
In the meantime.., I really hope that I (we) get to see you! Share stories, hugs and deepen our connection even more. Let’s make this the best year yet!
With all my love, admiration and respect – Charles
