To all of our beloved customers and fans,
We thank you for all of your continued support that not only reaches many here in the USA but also helps the lives of so many in Nepal, where our clothing is made. As most of you know there was a massive earthquake in Nepal a few days ago that was quite devastating.
We are very thankful that so far all of our friends and Synergy family in Nepal has been accounted for as safe, in addition to our factory where our clothing is made. Power has been largely off and so our communication has been intermittent and we are trying to gather more and more information to see how we can be of service in Nepal.
As a starting point we would like to donate 20% of all revenue to efforts that are providing direct relief to people in Nepal. All sales this week will go towards these efforts. We are starting by donating funds to both Seva and Karuna Shechen. We also encourage anyone to make their own personal donations to these two organizations, or a group of your choice.
Synergy is ever grateful to the beautiful country of Nepal and its people, for being such an integral part of our company. Our hearts and prayers are with the people of Nepal now as they face this challenging time. We are hopeful that efforts will be successful in helping the country recover and we thank you for your continued support of Synergy and for the ripple affect that support has on Nepal.
We feel blessed that we were able to have just traveled to Nepal a few weeks ago with our children and to have had such a special time there connecting with our Synergy Nepal family and the special country of Nepal. Those fresh memories of our time there are keeping our hearts and connection to Nepal in this time that much closer, and our faith in all recovery efforts that much stronger.
Join us in sending our prayers for healing to Nepal.

It’s officially Spring, and while that brings with it some much needed sunshine and blossoms, it also marks a year long pandemic anniversary. It’s wild to acknowledge how long we’ve all been in this; learning, changing, adapting, improvising in every way of being.
Awareness of the earth’s natural rhythms harmonizes us with her cycles, it helps us align our personal cycles with nature’s, which can give us more grounding and ease in an often unstable world. As the renowned author Joseph Campbell said, “The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” The equinoxes and solstices of the year give us the perfect opportunity to do just that.
December 21st marks the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where many cultures celebrate the first day of winter or “mid winter.” On this day the sun is at its lowest daily maximum elevation in the sky, which means it is the shortest day and longest night of the year.
