What's been going on at Schwartz Living Market? Well, the next chapter is upon us. We are preparing the space for the next Grand Opening in May, 2016 with lots of GREENpeneurs and HEALTH and WELLNESSpreneurs. So, a few days ago I walked in to this Urban Oasis for Healthful Living and what did I smell? Was it my imagination, or was I smelling some noxious fumes? There was my amazing contractor painting some sort of stain on a thin strip of wood adjacent to the beautiful, Made in the USA tile that now lines the area below the front window that I had hand picked, arranged by hand as a flowing riverbed, and cranked my shoulder over....
Why? What is it in me that created the situation of possible volatile organic compounds in the air inside our building? I thought I had been so very clear with all of the people putting their precious and wonderful energy into the space. You see, we have been complying with the Materials Petal of the Living Building Challenge for many, many years...I've repeated over and over and over again to everyone working and playing and being in the space that all materials MUST be cleared with me, through me before using them....Why do patterns continue to repeat themselves and why must lessons be learned over and over again?
If you've got any answers to this question, please let us know by posting on the Facebook page Schwartz Living Market or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Many blessings for vibrant health, wellness and clarity!
