A short introduction about “A Thousand Grandparents & Bedtime Stories” by Samantha
(Founder of The Delightmakers)
In the beginning was a desire to unite beautiful wisdom from around the world and share it with as many people as possible so that we might return the human heart to the core of human creation. A desire to create projects that all people could participate in and benefit from, projects that unite nations, races, genders, generations and cultures, projects that are simply about BIG LOVE; that is planetary scale, universal, unstoppable love.
Children are the conduit for such an intention and our beginning project is firstly for them and ultimately for all of us. It begins with the creation of a circle, formed by those that share the vision and it builds and spirals out to reach and include all that we can.
A Thousand Grandparents & Bed Time Stories is a project that started as a small idea where children (young and old) can connect and hear tales of wonder, mystery and enlightenment from voices from all around the world.
A thousand wisdom keepers providing inspiring stories to soothe them, fill them with wonder, awe and sense of mystery. A place to go to where Big Love rules the day, a place where their hearts and minds can be blown wide open to the magic of life.
The fortunate amongst us will be blessed with the most precious memories of childhood, sitting by a fire with our grandparents and family members, listening to and being delighted by their stories, never wanting them to end and asking to hear more and more before bedtime.
It is surprising to realise just how many have missed the richness of this experience, and that this is not simply related to material poverty so much as a shift in values and a deepening poverty consciousness that leaves no time or energy to invest in the sharing of self with others.
This realisation gave rise to the question “What gift we would we give to children who are orphaned or who have very little access to emotional and spiritual nurturing through whatever circumstances, whether orphaned through physical loss or culturally?”
The answer : A Thousand Grandparents, all different, some intense, some playful and all with different experience and wisdom to share. A Thousand Grandparents sharing the gift of presence, truth and intimacy of spirit for the world’s children.
The project is set to provide a platform where people of every nation, culture, gender, age, belief system and walk of life are joining together to serve one beautiful cause; Wisdom and Love Without Borders.
The first 50 stories have been recorded and the next 100 are scheduled for recording in the next few months. Once the fist 250 stories are recorded the project will be ready to roll out to the public, with a plan to provide approximately 20 new stories a month in the first year and then building that number as we reach across nations, and the project and foundation become established.
