A Home isn’t just about aesthetics, materialism or one’s spending power. A home exudes your values, virtues, beliefs, mindfulness & culture. When we make a home we balance the materialistic with the spiritual, while being mindful of a collective consciousness, with a spirit of Seva (service) and the philosophy of Soham – the idea that we are all connected to the Universe that is constantly supporting and nourishing us in ways we desire or need; identifying and being mindful that the Universe exists within us, as much as we exist within Her.
