There is a little patch of dirt next to the building where my yoga studio is. It currently serves only as a pathway from the Farmers Market parking area onto South Church Street and it has become a compressed and depressing corner of the lot. But it is soon to be transformed! I got the idea one day walking back from a downtown development committee meeting where we had discussed making downtown a “destination” worth visiting. Seeing this neglected area inspired me to step up and improve its state…I am always willing to do my part! But I knew I couldn’t do it alone. So I asked for help. I asked my yoga students, my Master Gardener friends and the right City officials for their blessing. Together, we are going to change this patch of dirt into a lovely little patch of garden heaven!
The face of our downtown is changing. I told the mayor once that it feels like we are on the crest of a wave, and anything is possible! (No one ever accused me of being pessimistic!) And I am honored and glad to assist in the Beautification of Asheboro.
One dynamic I love to see happen is people working together to create a positive change in the world around them. I’ve written about symbiotic relationships before: those where all participants are benefitting…and the more win/win/winning,the better! My latest project, the transformation of this barren patch of dirt into a garden requires many people coming together. The city agreed to help pour a sidewalk and acquire plants. The yogis offered to help till and then maintain the garden. The Master Gardeners are helping plan and plant.
This transformation would not be possible without so many hands coming together with a common goal.
YOU may even have had a role in this project! Along with changing the space at ground level, you will soon see a piece of art mounted upon the brick wall…high up above the street. It is a piece that has been several months in the making, and more hands than we could count! It is a circular design called The Santosha Mandala. It started in the studio where my yogis nailed caps and corks to a circular base. We started at the center and began working outward. (You may already know, perhaps from a previous article I wrote here) that a mandala is a radially symmetrical design that can be used as a tool to help you feel centered simply by gazing at it. So next we reached further out into our community during the annual Christmas on Sunset event, where anyone who wanted to, was allowed to hammer away. It really took off that night, and it was wonderful to see the design take form! What I enjoyed most was the many hands that enthusiastically created the design, parents and children, young and old alike gladly assisted in the creation of this community art project! My students and I recently finished it up and sealed it and are making arrangements to hang it up high, where it can be seen from the street by the entire community, thereby involving their participation as observers of the beauty we created, the circle of community, now complete.
In the end, each person contributing to the project makes a difference in our world. Each person who sees the Santosha Mandala Garden can enjoy its beauty. But it took someone to start the project, and to take responsibility. I used to say that I wanted to cause a Ripple Effect in my world, of good things happening. I am refining that thought….I now like to think I am a Catalyst in my Community. In chemistry, a catalyst modifies and increases the rate of a reaction without being consumed in the process. I am learning to ask for help, so that I don’t become depleted and I am encouraged that it is so enthusiastically given. This is clearly another win/win/win/win situation…thanks for being a part of it!
Are you Feeling Lucky?
We are lucky to have you!
On June 14th. Santosha Yoga studio will be transformed into the set of a Casino, remember the steamy set in Casa Blanca?

Licensed Professional Counselor, Author, and Radio talk show host!
This event is Free and Open to the Public
Midge Noble, a Licensed Professional Counselor will be presenting at Santosha Yoga in Asheboro on January 29th at 7pm. Midge will talk about her journey of feeling unworthy to finding her inner power which gave her the courage to publish two children’s books and host her own national radio show! Midge believes that we are all divine souls with greatness within us and once we tap into the power of YES… ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!
Midge works at Carolina Counseling Associates in Asheboro, serving children and families who are dealing with mental health issues, abuse issues, behavioral issues, ADHD, etc. Midge is also a huge animal advocate and donates a portion of book sales toward spay/neuter efforts in Randolph County to one day realize a no kill adoption center in Randolph County. Midge’s show: Second Chances airs every Thursday night at 9pmEST on http:toginet.com
Sheba: Home Is Where Your Heart Is tells the heart-wrenching tale of an abused, runaway dog given a second chance at life. Sheba is based on the true story of a young dog who survives abuse and neglect. Kept outside through freezing winters, Sheba learns to survive on her own and risks her life during a daring escape in order to have a chance at a better life. Sheba offers hope and inspiration. Noble incorporates subtle life lessons throughout the book, including foster care, adoption and animal rescue.
Ice Cube Award, Learning To Be Cool Under Pressure is Midge’ s second book. That book is based on the story of Dani, a young girl who lives in Ice Town. She has a destructive anger problem that causes her to melt things. Her family is going to be forced out of town if Dani can’t learn to control her anger and react differently to the school bully. This entertaining book packs a powerful message about learning to love and approve of yourself and finding your inner strength to manage your feelings. A donation from each book purchase will go toward spay/neuter efforts in Randolph County
