Caregivers Connecting – Evening Meditations

Posted February 8, 2023

We know the amount of time, energy, and personal commitment it takes to care for someone else, whether it is a tiny human, an elderly parent, or a fur baby. We realize the importance of nurturing at all stages of life. These events welcome caregivers who need time for themselves. Reconnect with your inner self and meet new friends. These evenings are an opportunity for self-care, meditation, relaxation, and grounding. Enjoy a cup of tea and a snack by the wood stove.

Hole in the Sidewalk

Posted February 7, 2023

Autobiography in Five Short Chapters

Chapter One
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am helpless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter Two
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in the same place.
But, it isn’t my fault.
It still takes me a long time to get out.

Chapter Three
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in…It’s a habit…but,
my eyes are open.
I know where I

On November 11th at 11:00 am, we pause to think about those who have gone before and people who have sacrificed their lives for our current lifestyle and freedoms. This tradition started 104 years ago at the end of the First World War when hostilities were ceased at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918. 

In his twenties, Steve spent four years in the Canadian Navy. He fondly remembers this time as a very fun, educational, and rewarding

Vibrational Medicine

Posted October 14, 2022

On Monday April 18th, 2022, I received a phone call from Russ Mater, a teacher, a colleague, and a friend. He was excited because he just received his InfopathyGlowing IC Pad and wondered if he could practice with me. I agreed and received a treatment the next day. We selected a combination of throat and lunginfoceuticals (ICs) because these areas have been points of weakness in my body for decades. During the session, I felt energy shifting and draining on the right side of my throat and lungs.

Rose Coloured Glasses

Posted August 15, 2022

In the spring, I purchased the funkiest glasses that I’ve ever owned. They have at least four colours swirled through them (rose, burgundy, orange, and blue). These glasses are a physical representation of the magic I feel inside. When I was picking the frames, I had this unique pair and three more plain blue ones. When I wore my multicoloured frames, I smiled. The staff also knew that the rose coloured glasses were the best for me, especially after Steve showed them a photo of me walking barefoot in

Energetic Geocaching

Posted March 7, 2022

In the summer of 2013, Steve, a few friends, and I planted Lemurian quartz crystals around Guelph. Our intent was to create an energetic grid to raise our vibration. We started on the Summer Equinox in June and planted one crystal behind the Church of Our Lady. Then, we planted one crystal per month during July, August, and September. These three were spread out between the Japanese Garden at the University of Guelph Arboretum, the east side of the river

Book Review: Vital Living – Walk for a Calmer You

Posted March 7, 2022

Two years ago when Steve and I started walking regularly, he stumbled across this adorable little book “Vital Living – Walk for a Calmer You” by Becky Dickinson (2019). We both read this short book (96 pg) and learned some new facts. Walking really is the best exercise for overall health and mental well-being. All you need is a pair of sturdy walking shoes. Walking is one of those activities during which your busy ego-based mind can rest and your

Love is Enough

Posted February 10, 2022

In February, our minds often move to Valentine’s Day and the Western view that love intensifies one day per year. I’ve been opening my heart to love for many years. Yet, I also experience heavy emotions. I look at these as opportunities to continue my healing journey. Various external factors are encouraging me to grow and expand. I am releasing expectations and attachments. As part of my personal healing tool box, I am spending lots of time in nature, grounding and
