A socially conscious and earth-friendly company in Nepal handcrafts the Intent Heals Journal™. The company's main objective is to provide sustainable development that improves the standard of living for Nepalese families in rural and urban areas as well as preserving artisan practices unique to the Himalayan region. Tibetan refugees benefit from employment opportunities and the company donates a portion of their proceeds back into the community.
Traditional Himalayan paper making techniques practiced for generations are used to create the special Lokta paper for our journals. Raw materials and dyes come from indigenous plants cultivated in managed forests thus preserving Nepal's fragile ecology. This paper is historically used for meditation prayer wheels in Nepal and Tibet. The cover of the journal is hand-dyed paper in a variety of rich colors with a gold or silver Bodhi leaf embossed on the front; a symbolic reminder of the ultimate potential that lies within each of us.
You can purchase these beautiful handmade journals with a silk protective bag for yourself and your loved ones for $12.00 plus tax, shipping and handling.
