MOTHER EARTH DAY

Duck

The earth is our mother and we must take care of her. We need her to survive! The theme for Earth Day this year is “Invest in Our Planet”, thus it is so befitting that we take some time in nature, slow down and connect with the world around us to hear her subtle wisdom. What is she sharing with us? What are the underlying patterns and laws of nature? What does she need from us for correct use of…     Read More

RETREAT

Collective Healing

Intergenerational trauma is real and what is happening in the Ukraine is damaging, on so many levels. But this is not the venue to clear up perceptions about what is real or not, nor to speculate what might be unfolding with this war. What I will say is that the last two years have been a lot… for most of us. Now knowing the strength of spirit that my Ukrainian heritage has to stand up for freedom and democracy, has…     Read More

SACRED MOMENTS

Sacred Moments

  We are closing 2021 with contentment and optimism for a new year of learning, challenges and commitments. Having just returned from traveling to spend the holidays with family in Peru, we feel blessed to be home, safe and sound after a relatively smooth trip. Moving around internationally has become quite complicated (bless my husband for completing all the technological travel details), but we had overall relaxing time which included some much needed ‘light therapy’ and ‘sacred moments’. Our world…     Read More

CONSCIOUS CHANGE

CONSCIOUS CHANGE

It is National Indigenous Peoples Day. With more awareness of how government and religion have shaped the lives of indigenous peoples, I would like to dedicate these words to our First Nations people of Canada. May we find a way to walk with you in the hope of reconciliation and collective healing. With vaccinations rolling out, we can have a new sense of optimism for the coming months ahead. It is a first world choice to vaccinate or not, but we’ll all…     Read More

INNER AND OUTER WORLDS

Wow. This is an interesting time of change and uncertainty. The world is watching and waiting for messages that will bring more clarity to a situation that has brought upheaval to many. With the privilege of having electronics we are doing our best to inform ourselves, however, often we spend too much time looking ‘out there’ distracting ourselves from what is most important. This is the time to be honoring our innermost selves, our true selves and then connecting with family…     Read More

A SUSTAINABLE SUMMER

Time is the most precious gift someone can give you. That is, when it is complete undivided attention with presence. Full body listening for the sake of understanding. A connection of pure awareness that I seek to find with you here. I liken it to the feeling of chanting OM at the end of a really good yoga class! A sensation we would love to sustain but understand “this too shall pass”. When we think of something as being sustainable, we are not usually thinking in terms of…     Read More

REASON FOR THE SEASON

REASON FOR THE SEASON

Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring! This is the first year in more than a decade that I have remained in Canada for ALL the seasons. Although Canada is where my family prefers to be, the allergy season in Vancouver is usually the time of year I get the ‘fever’ and want to be any where else. So this week, the mantra that helps me appreciate where I am is “I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me.” It reminds me to give gratitude…     Read More
