April 2014 – Gifts from “the MAX”
The Max was created “to discover yourself beyond who you know yourself to be. It is a voyage through your own humanity—a journey to discover the extent of your self-expressive power. Employing a variety of acting, communication, and observation techniques, it’s designed to expand your limits “to the max” and move you into a new arena of personal creativity and self-expression”.  read more

November 2014 – Giving Instead of Buying
One month until Christmas and we are inundated with signs, flyers, advertisements etc all encouraging us to buy buy buy consume consume consume; Black Friday (even though this is a USA thing) and this sale and that sale, Boxing Day sales that have turned into weeks. Christmas marketing is a smooth oiled machine, slick and enticing you to buy things for your loved ones because that is going to show them how much you care and love them. To tell you the truth I have a hard time going into the stores this time of year. To me it reminds me that the true meaning of Christmas is lost in our society.  read more

January 2015 – Listen to the Forest
The war against the Earth began with the idea that humans are separate from Nature. It’s contemporary seed was sown when the Living Earth was transformed into being a Resource Extraction Industry; to facilitate the industrial revolution and our addiction to our never ending increasing GDP economy. A metabolism, that grows non stop consuming it’s host is called Cancer.  read more

March 2015 – Reject Fear, Live Fearlessly
As I write this newsletter, circulating around Facebook and the internet are petitions to stop the current Government from pushing Bill C- 51 without much debate or oversight. We are gladly signing these! For if this Bill is rammed through our rights and freedoms are even more eroded then ever before. If we go to a pipeline protest will we fear that we will be arrested without cause just for expressing our opinions?  read more

April 2015 – Looking Deeply at Mother Earth
As everything blooms and bursts forth this spring I invite you to take it in, to look closely at the buds and blossoms, to touch the earth, to hear her heartbeat!  For as Rumi says…”there are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground” When you arrive at Quantum Leaps this year, you will be welcomed with this sign that outlines and invitation to look closer at Mother Earth.  read more

November 2015 – Vipassana Meditation Story
From November 4-15th, I travelled to the Vipassana Centre of British Columbia in Merritt to go deeply into the practice of Meditation. This was the 2nd time I was to embark on this journey within, the previous course being 12 years ago. Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India’s most ancient techniques of meditation.  read more

January 2016 – Manifesting a Dream
We are excited to share with you some new ideas. Most people spend the best years of their lives driving back & forth to work to pay off their home (cars, gas, groceries etc.) & the tiny piece of land it sits on. There is a lot of land for sale in the Blaeberry Valley! Just have a look at the RE/MAX listings for Golden. We just picked up 25 acres on the north side of us; just past the Labyrinth and Wyman creek. We were not particularly looking for more land but a friend that owed it just kept lowering the price; she needed the coin. It is a lovely piece of raw land with beautiful Cedar trees and even an “Avatar” tree in the centre.  read more

March 2017 – Forest Bathing and it’s benefits!
Forest Bathing, know as Shinrin-Yoku, originated in Japan in the 1980’s. Doctors in Japan began to prescribe this Forest Therapy to clients who were suffering from high stress, anxiety, and depression. Over the past 30 years, research has shown that time in the Forest (in this very specific way) significantly decreases stress, anxiety, depression, and mental fatigue. It greatly increases the overall feeling of wellness, clarity, critical thinking, and the ability to make decisions.

April 2017 – Rising into Radiance
At a time of unprecedented crisis upon our world, we stand before a threshold of great change. We are at a crossroads; a moment in time of great transition; a choice point. Evolve or go extinct ~ this is the mandate offered to any species preparing to shift into a higher life-form. Great evolutionary shifts upon this planet have always occurred under crisis. A diamond is formed under pressure; a butterfly emerges only after it has surrendered and dissolved its identity as a caterpillar. Are you willing to surrender the limited creature you have been to become something more? To become something winged?
