Feb. 12, 2009 - PRLog -- LOS ANGELES, CA-  Green With Music, “GWM” the sustainable eco-luxurious gifting retreat and Spa, happened during Grammy Week on February 6th, in the bright, sustainable penthouse suites of The Mercury, located in Korea town.  The Penthouses were fabulously decked out by green designer Alison Shoemaker of Alison Designs Co., using Cisco furniture, Innerscape plant designs with a lovely touch of natural art provided by Kevin Barry Fine Arts.  White Swan Records, MC Yogi “Elephant Power” set the musical ambiance in the room.

Celebrated guests first mingled in the GWM eco showcase, where they had the opportunity to meet leading green product providers such as: Comfort Bars (feel good about what you eat), Eco Usable, Sweat Earth Chocolates, Crystal Rock clothing, AGL Grass, KisClean Organic cleaning solutions, Beverages were provided by Hansen’s natural sodas, and Ecoloblue.  They were also asked to decorate “Doorway to Dignity” toilet icons which will be auctioned off in a fund raiser to benefit the Wherever The Need Foundation.

“Our mission is to alleviate the suffering of the millions of people who deal with the effects of unhealthy drinking water every day,” said Wherever the Need CEO David Crosweller.   “We’re grateful that celebrities donate their ‘artwork” and names to such a cause, which allow us to reach an audience that might not respond to traditional requests for support.  Adding their personal touch enables us to raise awareness of these issues - and money to help combat them.”

After the GWM eco-showcase, guests visited “Spa Tibet”, Nettie’s Manis and Infinity Sun essential oil tanning booth.

"Spa Tibet" was the first installation of "Spa Without Walls," a concept conceived by Melanie and Robert Sachs of Diamond Way Ayurveda.  With a goal to heighten awareness of the 50 year anniversary of the invasion of Tibet, Spa Tibet showcased some of the transformative Tibetan Ayurvedic treatments now available in the West.   Media and stars were welcomed into a stunning penthouse venue bedecked with Tibetan brocades, carpets and paintings that shimmered with gold leaf.  The aromas of Himalayan herbs, essential oils, and the warming steam of freshly brewed SLOChai perfumed the air.  

Chanting and the sounds of Tibetan bowls resounded infusing the space with peacefulness and inspiration.  Lama Dawa Tharchin of BodiPath offered meditation to spread compassion throughout the world and organic vegan delights were joyfully provided by two beautiful young spirits from Cafe Gratitude.  Guests were relaxed and renewed by massage for face, feet or full body using organic aromatherapy blends.  

Robert Sachs, the co-founder of Diamond Way Ayurveda, commented: “They smiled, they cried as their hearts and minds opened and their eyes shone bright again allowing peace and compassion to flow.  Spa Tibet was able to exemplify all that green stands for; life giving, energizing, sustainable, and compassionate activity that benefits the whole planet."

“Thanks so much for having me at the ‘Green with Music’ gifting retreat!” said guest Sandra Knauer of Plan A Creative Media, “I have to tell you, this was the nicest gifting event I have been in a looong time,
everybody was so nice and friendly, the atmosphere was great and the products shown very, very interesting!”

Later in the evening, The GWM Eco-Benefit for ‘Wherever the Need’ took place in the artsy loft space of Whole Life Times magazine downtown at 1200 Hope Street.  The rain didn’t dampen any spirits as guests turned out en masse to support ‘Wherever the Need,” an eco-charity providing important water sanitation services in developing nations.  Guests danced the night away with DJ Ralphie Ralph and a special performance by 18 year old Lara Johnston (MTV’s Rock the Cradle) that garnered a standing ovation from the audience.

The Eel River Organic Brewing Company served delicious organic beer.  The Sidney Frank Importing Co. provided sweet Tommy Bahamas rum drinks like the Millionaire Mojito and Tommy Classic Daiquiri.  Pearl Vodka was served, mixed with Steaz Energy Drinks, made from the world’s best organic Ceylon tea.  Handsome bartenders mixed the cocktails, courtesy of Beautiful Bartenders.

Ghalia organic desserts served up a tempting array of scrumptious, organic brownies, mini cupcakes, tarts and delectable heart shaped cookies. Coconut Bliss served several tempting flavors of vegan ice cream made from coconut milk and naturally sweetened with agave. All ingredients are organic and fair trade. It's dairy free, soy free, gluten free and kosher approved and the amazing thing is Coconut Bliss tastes like real ice cream.

Despite days of rain after GWM, load –out was successfully completed by Go Green Moving, a super professional moving operation using bio-diesel powered trucks.
