Today we heard from our longtime friend and contributor, Jane English, that a good friend of the world passed away on April 24th. Angeles Arrien (1940 ~ 2014) was a light for all who came in contact with her. In addition to her work as an award-winning author, anthropologist, and educator, Angeles was a consultant to diverse organizations such as the Wharton Business School, Motorola Corporation, Hewlett-Packard Labs, the Fetzer Institute, and the Kellogg Foundation – bridging cultural anthropology, psychology, and comparative religion.
It was our privilege at Amber Lotus to collaborate on a calendar project with Angeles and Jane English a few years back: The Mystical Path – Practical Feet 2009 wall calendar. Angeles herself requested “that for those who wished to truly honor her over this next year, that once a month on the anniversary of her passing (the 24th of each month), that individuals would light a candle and say a prayer to honor her memory.” (http://www.angelesarrien.com/)
In her memory we will be offering a light on our blog/FB on the 24th of each month for the rest of the year. We invite you to join us each month, beginning this Saturday and continuing until April 24, 2015.
Pictured here are the wisdom quotes by Angeles Arrien paired with beautiful images by Jane English that we published in the Mystical Path Practical Feet wall calendar. Please enjoy in her memory.
