I’m super excited to announce the new patch for 2018.
The patch is similar to the 2017 design with the rainbow-banded Camino shell, but has the red color for 2018. The rainbow shell design was inspired by the concept of chakras, which was an important part of my journey with yoga and healing over the last year. I am continuing with the chakras theme for 2018 by highlighting the root chakra color at the base of the shell.
What Are Chakras?
The Sanskrit word chakra literally translates as wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body.
There are seven main chakras, which align along the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head. To visualize a chakra in the body, imagine a swirling wheel of energy where matter and consciousness meet. This invisible energy, called prana, is vital life force, which keeps us vibrant, healthy, and alive.

The rainbow also symbolizes peace and universal love. Combined with the Camino shell design, it radiates healing, peace, and love, from root to crown.
I produce a limited quantity of patches each year, and the 2017 design sold out earlier than expected. To those who bought the 2017 patch, thank you! I am happy to add photos of how you use your patches to the Patch Gallery on my Facebook page.
