Christine, the president of Brush Dance, told me the meaning of the name:

The Brush Dance is a healing dance for children performed by Indian
tribes. Many neighboring tribes would gather around a fire to pray and
dance for the child in need. The Indians believe that both participants
and observers are important to the dance and that all should attend with a
good heart - leaving any ill feelings behind. While we are not associated
with any Tribes, we do believe that it "takes a village" (or three!) and
that ill feelings should be left in the past and focus on healing.

I think that's beautiful!

Brush Dance planners and wall calendars can be found at, on and at

Many thanks again to Brush Dance for sponsoring these giveaways, and to everyone who participated! 


  1. Hi Laurie. Thanks so much for the competition, I haven't won anything in about 20 years!! You can be sure that the Mindfulness planner will get just the use it was designed for. They look beautiful products from a company that really understands the difference in just doing business and adding that extra bit that makes it so much more worthwhile. Love the blog, and I wondered where the photo is from, on your homepage? its beautiful :)

    1. Thanks Paul, and congratulations! Don't forget to email me so I can forward your email address to Brush Dance. They will contact you to get your mailing address so they can send your new planner!

      The photo is of the River Dee up past Braemar. Gorgeous valley!

  2. Congratulations!! After we get a ways into 2013 and you've had a chance to use your new planners, you know we would all like a peek at them, if you are inclined to share.

    1. I'll do my best! I have a couple of guest posts planned for the Philofaxy website, but they will ahve to wait until I have handed in my PhD thesis, the deadline for which is getting perilously close. :(
