Conscious Contributions December 30, 2017December 30, 2017 At The Broad Place giving back is essential for us. We have been greatly inspired by this quote by French artist Paul Gauguin, “I shut my eyes in order to see” as for us it describes meditation so perfectly, (even though we’re unsure what he was intending with his quote!). Vision is incredibly important for us, as creatives who are now working in education. So we have partnered with the incredible Fred Hollows Foundation, and for every student that learns Integrated Meditation with The Broad Place, we are donating so that a person within our Australian indigenous communities can have their eyes sight restored. Essentially, you shut your eyes, and someone else can see.
