Why not start practicing how we can travel mindfully before leaving your home or after your trip? Traveling is not just checking off your destinations. I believe it offers special moments in our lives. I'd like to offer an experience of mindfulness practice that you can travel with. The classes are available for small size groups (10 – 15 people). We’ll bring tools and help set up for the learning experience.

"We are back from a wonderful trip to Barcelona. Thanks for setting us up with the Majestic Hotel. It's location was great, service excellent and it had a great breakfast for everyone. It could not have been better. Thanks again. We look forward to working with you in the future."
Thank you so much for all of your help in planning our trip to Japan. Our best vacation ever! And we travel a lot. The hotels were great. Thank you for experiences that we wouldn't be able to have without your help, like the Kabuki in Kyoto, which we loved, and the prayer you arranged for our dog, Seamus, at the temple. We were very touched... You also did a great job sequencing the places we visited and planned the bus and train schedules for ease of travel. We would have been lost (literally), without this help."
We were in a bind for time and not knowing all we needed to know about travel in Japan. We asked Kay to help despite the short notice. Kay helped us get Japan Rail passes in time for our trip, informed us about the train schedules and which platforms we should use to make connections, and helped us book reservations with hotels. She even helped us figure out how to check our bags in the airport so we could travel more lightly.
It was a huge relief to have someone who knew what was possible to do in the given amount of time.
And it all worked! Everything was perfect!
Her communication skills were terrific, with documentation all along the way. She provided us with an itinerary with addresses and phone number in both Japanese and English to make getting to our destinations smoother.
We highly recommend her, her knowledge, her professionalism, and her efficiency.
I had a total blast at the event.
I liked the learning experience and trying something different! The flow and feel of the class was great!
Wonderful to learn a new style of arrangement. The presentation was enjoyable and clear!
Kay did a nice job giving the history behind the flower arrangement and leading into actually make our own arrangement!
I enjoyed learning history, comparison to other forms! Want to learn more from Kay.
"Kay Fahlberg's enthusiasm and appreciation of her grandfather who created OBAKU-MISHO ikebana, make this an enjoyable class that I recommend to anyone wanting to learn a new style of Ikebana."
