Community

Community is more than a geographical segment on a map or the sum of individuals who inhabit a shared space in a given location.

Slow Living: Adding More Ease + Intention to Your Life

Breathe. No, really. Close your eyes. Inhale through your nose, all the way to the pit of your belly.

The world has been turned upside down and inside... Continue Reading →

Reflections on Truth + Reconciliation

With mid-terms and assignments well underway, I haven't given much thought to the Fall semester beyond checking my final grades.

It was definitely one of my favourite courses to date, partly because it was taught in an interdisciplinary... Continue Reading →
