Adventures and Birthday Celebrations!

It is The Calm Space’s first birthday!

Come on in, the door is open, the cake is fresh and the bubbles are on ice.

We’re celebrating and you get the presents!  We have a Monster Prize Draw this month to celebrate twelve glorious months of publishing… and there are many wonderful prizes to win!  You can see the full list here.

This month, we’re talking about Adventures – which we thought very appropriate on our first birthday since publishing this online magazine has been a huge adventure for each and every one of us!

We’re also celebrating with the launch of another new space – this one dear to my own heart. The Wisdom Space will showcase someone inspirational each month, with an interview, tips or similar. This month I talk to adventurer-extraordinaire Deanna Sorensen, who pushed her body and her mind to the limit, all in order to prove to herself that she could! Whilst I don’t think I’ll be walking to Nullabor to follow in her footsteps, I am certainly inspired to step outside my comfort zone and expand my horizons even more.

We’ve so much jammed into this issue that it may require you to come back regularly to dip into another Space or two… please feel free to leave a comment for any of our contributors – they truly would love to hear from you! That’s the best part about being an online magazine and not a paper one – we’re here all month long and will respond to any questions, ideas or comments from you. We really value your input.

I’m off to share the cake and pop the cork on the bubbles – enjoy your month!



PS If you’re in a commited relationship, you cannot miss Relationship Space this month!

    Hau‘oli la hanau – Happy Birthday Káren to you and to all your contributors here at The Calm Space!

    Your online magazine is one of my favorite reads, for each article continues to exude the spirit of Aloha with Ma‘alahi – that gloriously special persuasion for calm contentment. All of you help me savor my life greatly, helping me to open my eyes to the splendor of it.

    Thank you so much – your going the distance for this birthday is a gift to all of us. The first birthday, la hanau ‘akahi, is so, so important!

    Thank you Rosa! Your words are sweet music indeed. I will have to remember Ma’alahi as calm contentment… that does seem to fit with The Calm Space, doesn’t it?

    I am thriilled we have made it through the first year, without too many growing pains, and our second year promises to be very exciting indeed.

    I am sure I speak for all the Calm Space team when I say thank you for your generosity and kind words. Mahalo Rosa.
