The Earth Train vision leads us always forward toward bigger and better cultural and societal contributions. It includes many aspects that are invaluable to the idea of Earth Train, but that haven't been implemented yet. We'd like to share these ideas with you, with hopes that you'll better understand the scope and potential of our passion, Earth Train.
One such project is the Junglewood Jewelry collection. Inspired by the intricate and profound emotions of the Junglewood Gallery Sculpture series, the idea is simple and beautiful: a line of custom jewelry that captures the dynamics and diversity of the Jungle - created by those who know it best, the indigenous Wounaan and Emberá who have lived there for hundreds of years.
The inimitable skill of the carvers is written in their Junglewood Gallery works, from which some of the jewelry would be derived. The idea becomes irresistible when this same skill is applied to a product that can truly put the bearer a level above the rest. The ability to support ecological awareness and cultural and artistic viability simply by wearing a unique and precious piece of art-jewelry is an opportunity that won't be ignored.
Music and Yoga at Centro Mamoní
Early in 2010, Earth Train entered talks with renowned Berklee College of Music staff member and floutist Mia Olsen about hosting a regular Yoga for Musicians retreat in Centro Mamoní. Ms. Olsen teaches a class, "Yoga for Musicians", at Berklee College of Music, and - grasping the opportunity presented by the budding partnership between the college and Earth Train - shared our interest to install a program at Centro Mamoní to introduce yet another valuable cultural experience from which both students and the surrounding community could benefit.
