First Signs of Snow

November 10, 2017

Waking up to the first signs of snow this morning made me think about all the things that I love about the cold, winter months. Warm sweaters, wool grandma socks, a hot pot of steaming tea, curling up with a good book. The crunching sound of snow beneath my boots, layering up in scarves and mitts, and the feeling of your fingertips and cheeks after spending hours outside skating or simply exploring.

Winter is also a time when the wheel of the year enters into its darker half. They days are shorter, it gets darker earlier and it is a season mostly governed by recluse and dormancy.

Life is still and silent. The green and fertile earth has given away to the chill of winter and the hibernation of the earth. With this silence and stillness comes a time of introversion and contemplation. Winter invites us to quiet the mind and still the soul. It is a time to shed and give way to a rebirth of our inner self. To slide along the pure winter whites with reflection and contemplation.

I embrace the landscape and the climate. I immerse myself in the cold white world that is winter. Its beauty and sparkle, the way the snow settles on the trees, creating an icing top that I almost want to reach out and lick off my finger.

Living in a climate where I am able to experience all the seasons is magical and moving, both in their beauty and importance for mother earth, but also symbolic to the workings of my inner self. I will make the most of this winter until the earth is ready to rise again with the new beginnings and enchantment of spring.

Reiki Circle

This afternoon I was blessed with hosting a Reiki Circle for Ryerson community members. A wonderful group of individuals came to my session with open hearts and beautiful faces. I am so honoured to have been able to offer a brief Reiki healing treatment to everyone who attended as well as speaking about Reiki and its amazing healing benefits on the spirit, mind and body. Reiki truly is amazing and I am humbled to be able to offer it to others.

Yoga under the Sun and Stars

July 27, 2017

There was a slight breeze in the warm evening air as the sun slowly set, casting elongated shadows upon rows and rows of yellow mats topped with white. An endless sea of changing shades of blue filtered across the open sky. As the evening progressed, the sky became spotted with shimmering, sparkling dots which glittered down upon those gathered at the 2017 LolĂ« White Tour in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Breathing in the same air as those around me, feeling everyone’s energy swirl together, and the beating of hundreds of hearts as one was a special feeling.

There is something very awakening when sharing your practice within a community of other like minded people. To me it stirred up feelings of connectivity and wholeness. Goosebumps broke out along my skin while laying in Savasana starring up at the dark indigo sky, feeling as if the sky and myself were becoming one.
