This event has already passed but we hope to create more events like this in the future.
Have you ever seen a Daruma, the circle-y angry-looking doll you would usually see sold at temples?
The Daruma is a traditional Japanese doll, a symbol of perseverance and luck in Japan.
The steps of using a Daruma are pretty simple:
1.) Think of a goal, wish, or promise you would want to fulfill and commit to it.
2.) Once you commit to it, paint in one of the eyes.
3.) Make sure to work for your commitment every day.
4.) When you have finally achieved your goal, made a wish come true, or have kept a promise, paint in the other eye.
Daruma dolls can be constant reminders of what the Japanese call the ganbaru spirit. This means that you choose to move forward in life despite the pitfalls and bumps on the road.
Why don’t you paint a Daruma with us while we all commit to keeping our ganbaru spirit to achieve our individual goals and dreams?
