Invisible Caims is the passionate creation of Giada Gaslini.
Originally from Milan I started very early to be a serious traveller around the world.
I was moved by a deep curiosity first, as my father used to take me watching the airplanes.
I ended up in spending all my savings moving around in adventures like driving along 23,000 Km in Australia by a campervan or spending one month in a monastery in Nepal to receive Buddhist teachings which are now the great key and source of my spiritual quest.
I was swinging back and forth in many directions but not driven inside to see my happiness blowing.
As a result of this constant migrating, I ‘ve also been a writer, co-author of a non-profit book with other 33 Italian women (“Donne che emigrano all’estero”- “Women moving abroad”) to tell our stories in different countries.
“Moving abroad has meant to me a change of identity, starting from my name, which had to adapt itself to different phonetic rules. Specifically because I was lacking the definition of whom was behind that name”.
As I stated recording my contribute in the photographic exhibition “A Bench on the Road-We are all Immigrants” performed around Scotland and at the Piccolo Theatre in Milan.
Wandering in search for answers I’ve been learning to heal myself with holistic therapies instead of traditional medicine becoming a passionate practitioner of Hatha Yoga, Reiki, Reflexology, Ayurveda, Meditation, Acupunture, Regressive Hypnosis, Crystals Reading, Medicine Cards Reading to nourish my body and my mind.
Art and Spirituality
And where is Art?
Apart from writing, my creativity has instead been hidden to show up in 2013 when I moved to live in Scotland recalled by a strong dejavu from a past life in Edinburgh that literally gave me a new birth. In this city, that hosts the biggest Art Festival in the world, the Fringe, where half of your friends are artists and you end up painting yourself, I started the first project of Invisible Caims, Drink In Art, organizing private exhibition in local flats to promote artists based locally.
And I realized that painting and music were helping my emotions to flow out and healing them like the holistic approach. I got enchanted and decided to use my twenty years experience as Events Planner organising every kind of events worldwide, to merge my Art and Spirituality background together in Invisible Caims.
Travels have become transformational journeys, retreats where I like inviting Art professionals or Holistic facilitators to work for the benefit of our lovely tribe, our Inner Explorers in the longest journey ever: from our Mind to our Heart.
Our beautiful woman in red symbolizes creative fertility holding in her right hand a brush to draw a Caim around herself. Her left-hand pauses in the Gyan or Om Mudra that brings peace and increases concentration.
She represents Art and Spirituality in a circle of protection and has been painted by Giada.
Four are the reasons that enchanted me in choosing this name, Caim.
Our workshops are held in safe peaceful spots where our love and intentions to focus on you only create a special bubble of protection. We always start our retreats with a Caim Ceremony drawing an invisible circle with incense around our bodies to let the magic happen and feel protected like the Celts used to do.
Before even knowing that there was a name to call it, this circular gesture with the hand is something I’ve been doing every morning in my last ten years to protect myself.
This Gaelic word is my homage to Scotland that welcomed my spirit back home.
One of the original Celtic names of my birth city, Milan, is Medhelan which means “Sanctuary“, like “Caim”. This is my homage to my past.
