Lessons Learned at BMSE 2015

BMSE Booth 2015

30 Second Pitch

I think I finally got a 30 second pitch for the church figured out. It’s amazing how quick you come up with it after taking to dozens of people. I’ll be incorporating parts of it throughout the website as time goes on.

Adult Coloring

We put out some simple Mandalas for the kids to color at the expo. Several people told us about adult coloring groups on Facebook. Several adults wanted to color the Mandalas we had there. Coloring is for adults too. The same goes for the candy bowl. We originally thought the candy bowl and coloring would attract kids our direction. It turns out that it attracts both kids and adults alike.

Totem Animal of the Day

The booth right next to ours was a booth on totem animals. They gave everyone the opportunity to choose one card for their “totem animal of the day”. We ended up purchasing both the cards and the book. Once I’m finished with the book, we’ll put it on the church bookshelf for sharing. I’m curious if combining the totem animal cards with angel or other tarot cards will give additional insights into readings. I’ll try that in the near future. Totem Animals & Medicine Wheels.

Scottish Gypsies

When I initially researched gypsies, I found that the term sort of indicates people from Egypt. I hadn’t given it much thought since then. At BMSE, I got to spend some time with the mountain gypsies. She explained that they are based on the Scottish tradition of Gypsies. It sort of relates to Celtic traditions. When I did my genealogy, I found that the Johnston Family name comes from Scotland. This is definitely a topic that I will continue to research. I’ll probably start my research at their Facebook page, Mountain Gypsies.

Silva Method

One attendee was telling me about a method of mediation called the Silva Method. It’s apparently about empowering yourself. It seems to covering meditation and healing. You can check out their website for more information, Silva Method. At first glance, it seems like it’s about selling books, cds, and seminars.
