I've been home for one month and still processing the previous 10 month season with Momentom Collective leading our Artist Residencies and creative communities around the world. Still so much to process and reflect on from so many incredible people sharing skills, inspiration and ideas.
I teamed up with Tony Tobias to get a snapshot a...
I had my first sign language class this week. What a beautiful and intuitive language! My new friend, Linnea, is a proud First Nations woman, was born deaf and recently moved to Saskatoon. Our friendship stemmed from us crossing paths late at night in a very challenging situation, which, through being open to holding supportive space for a stranger when they needed it, has had a big impact on both of our lives.
Feliz Año Nuevo amigos!
It's that time of year when people reflect on the year behind, the year ahead and what goals they can implement - now - to getting more out of their daily life on this colourful and abundant planet we're fortunate to call home.
Let's focus on the now part.
My resolution this year is not focused on temporary diets, travel plans or bucket list check-offs...but simply being more aware and grateful for the daily gifts we already have and often take for granted. Family, good health and full be...
Two words to live, or travel by...or is that the same thing?
My Kula guru CJ Ananada (big smile on the right) once beautifully told me that above any lesson to take away from our three-week intensive yoga teacher course, if there were any two words to live by for a better, more fullfilling life it would simply state:
Everything else will follow and manifest as long as you are tapping into the moment and applying yourself to it. Like a continous life meditation waking into mindful...
I can't thank Kula Collective enough, not only for the amazing journey through history, anatomy, self-reflection, spiritual shamanism and of course the asanas (poses, aka stretching), but also the ability to experience it all through receiving their Dharma Grant. Muchimas gracias!
But yes, let's talk about the stretching. By day one and it became quite obvious there's so much more to yoga and being an instructor than the asanas and poses. Yoga is among the oldest documented fo...
Do bad ideas and 80's pop music really have anything in common?
Like anything in life it's how you approach them.
As I discuss in this week's Morning Maté, your openness to turning it up often makes the difference between finding the value in a disliked idea...and belting out Toto's Rain's Down in Africa at the top of your lungs :)
Decide for yourself in the video below, filmed along the beautiful riverside of downtown Saskatoon:
Tricky decisions and potentially bad ideas are the daily norm for every world...
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth..."
Since I've been home after another season in Central America, it's hard to not appreciate the tiniest things we Canadians take for granted: drinking tap water, constant electricity, hot showers and flushing toilet paper - let alone the diversity of people, healthcare an...
