Hannah, Vivian, Ben, Janice, Jess, Tabitha, Len, Lisa, Steven, Kath, Ali, Sunny,

Claire, JP, David, Aimee, Frances, Lu, Vivian and some more people that I forgot the

names, came to the session.

I can't even believe that we have completed together

1000 dolls!!!!!

on this amazing weekend.

Actually we made 1001 so we have already started the next thousand!

I run out of fabric. On Saturday I asked everybody to bring any fabric that they could

have at home, not thick fabric, from white to medium cream. On Sunday I received

very nice pieces of fabric and we are now ready to sew the next communities.

We had inspiring conversation and shared beautiful intimate moments while we were

adding the dreams and hearts into the dolls, and also after meditating.

Some comments:

This is a brilliant session. Great to sit down and making + chatting + contributing to this

project. Beautifully led! So glad I came!

Relaxed + enjoyable experience.

I totally loved this. Small meditative beautiful!

I loved making my little person. Beautiful idea and a really relaxing, creative

experience. Thank you!

Good to finally do a doll, have started on other D&D, at last I finished one, Thank you

Regina, hugs.

What a beautiful idea and a calming ‘other’ experience. Regina is a skillful dreamer

and this passion project is a beautiful shaft of light in a complex world. 7 billion will be.

Thank you for creating a space for craft and meditation, may the hearts of the dolls

spread love across the universe!

Very calming! Look forward to seeing more of this project. The doll I stuffed had a red

mark which appeared where its appendix would be - funny because I've just had mine

taken out.

1000! Thank you, a wonderful moment of calm for body and brain - lovely!

A tender holding both of me by her and by me to the doll. May life reign beautifully!

A brilliant moment of calm and peace in the middle of creative chaos.

At first I asked Regina what this session was about and she said let's do it and you will

see. Really touchy, connecting and so important. Just let it be. Really enjoyed and

thank you for the meditation and for inviting me to make a doll.

This has been absolutely lovely, so calm! Thank you for teaching me.

This was a really therapeutic exercise. I had a lot of great conversations with great

people whilst making my doll and after meditating I felt very connect and a lot of love

for my little creation. I hope he has a good journey! Thanks Regina.

Calming, ‘different’, very ambitious, don't doubt it will happen, thanks.

This session was beautiful! It helped to center my mind, it centered my dreams and

suddenly made me realise I must pursue the reoccurring persistent dream I've been


I can't wait to meet everyone again to continue making the next communities of dolls.

Thank you so much for your generosity and support.

I love you guys!
