Hello and happy fall,
I hope this finds you and yours well and safe as autumn begins. It has been an intense time in world events - with crazy fires, floods, hurricanes, and monsoons. My heart has has been feeling quite open, and at times I have been feelings helpless to rise against what is occurring around the world. I was reminded of the importance of who we are being, and not just what we are doing, as we cope amidst disasters.
It seems that who we are being is unequivocally linked to our own selfcare. It does happen to be 'selfcare Sunday' and a weekly reminder to rest, rejuvenate, connect - whatever YOU need, can be really helpful! Similarly, taking time to set intentions in this regard can also be a real game changer. Consider joining Michele Theoret and I for our Fall Back Retreat at the gorgeous Lily Lake Resort October 27 - 29, 2017. This retreat will include self-care and self-compassion workshops in addition to restorative yoga, yoga nidra, art and meditation. We will have opportunities for rest and reflection, nature walks and conversation.
As the new school year starts it’s hard to avoid talk of productivity. But, it’s important to remember that being busy isn’t the same as being fulfilled. Well Inked Box and I want to encourage you to slow down and practice intentional selfcare. With that in mind, we’re GIVING AWAY one of their current boxes! So many goodies to do a wee bit of journalling! To enter, go to Instagram, follow us both and comment on the photo with what you do for selfcare. If you're not on Instagram, don't worry - we are here for you! Just email me with what you're doing for selfcare and we'll get you entered. Plus, for anyone local, if you'd like to sign up for a Well Inked Box subscription, they've offered free shipping by using the code EDMONTON!
In addition to all the above, I am excited to remind you that my ebook is now available and hard copies will be coming soon! I am also working to get out a creative project I've had on the go for some time - a Yoga Memory Game that would make a great stocking stuffer for any yoga lovers or young families! Stay tuned for details.
Heads up, I'll be on the Alberta Primetime Lifestyle Panel Monday September 11, 2017. Tune in at 6 pm or 11 pm as we are discussing some great topics, including managing chores at home, ways to determine school grades and the concept of "oppression olympics."
Thank you for continuing to be part of my community. I hope to connect in person soon!
Hello and happy fall,
