What's In a Name?

The word SHAMANALARA means LOVE.

You won't find it in any dictionary.  In fact, unless you follow my poetry or have seen me perform, this will be the first time you have ever heard of it....because up until 2014 that word did not exist. I made it up.

Like many people, I have often wondered what love is.  Not necessarily the meaning of it, but what it really is.  If I were to encounter it, would I know what it was, even if it was called something other than love?

One morning as I pondered this thought, I remembered the verse from Romeo and Juliet stating that "....a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet..", and I wondered if the same thing could be said about love.  It was through that wondering, that a new word and a poem was born.  

SHAMANALARA was my answer to a question that had been on my heart and mind for a long time. 

I knew when I was working on the idea for this endeavor, that I wanted the name to be something special and meaningful and reflective of love......and so, SHAMANALARA it is.

It is my hope that these products bring you peace of mind, relaxation, wellness and most of all the comfort of knowing that they are being made and presented to you in the spirit of SHAMANALARA.
