Summertime and the Living is Easy...

We welcomed summer on June 21 from our campsite at Long Lake. Hot, beautiful and perfect kayaking conditions. Lots of swimming (COLD Alberta lake!!) and plenty of beach time too. A wonderful way to enjoy the solstice and launch the season. More time at Fish (Shunda) Lake only added to the bliss. Two weeks of camping with my One and Only...ahh.

Back at home, the weeds have also enjoyed the perfect conditions and are blooming rampantly and triumphantly. A little love in the yard will go a long way, I think. As lovely as getting away is, being at home feels like, well, HOME. Not quite as easy as camping but what can you do? Other things tend to intrude like working at our day jobs but enjoying what each day brings, and planning future adventures is a great way to breathe in each moment and savour each different taste.

I love helping people find themselves through stillness and meditation and use that knowledge to explore deeper and discover their own stories, their uniqueness, and their specialness. Would love to have you join me and connect our journeys, finding pathways together to bring out the best in both of us.

With the last six months of yoga teacher training completed, I'm a certified yoga teacher (RYT 200). I'll be offering yoga and meditation classes as well as full and new moon celebrations. Writing, journaling and memoir classes plus workshops are also in the works. Details will be posted over the next month...here on the website, and on Facebook.

In the meantime, I am immersing myself in summertime - reveling in the heat, the light and the lush bloom of nature. This season is so short and every moment, every second needs to be cherished. We are blessed with four seasons and each of them brings their own personalities to our world - embrace what is here and now. Wear sunscreen if you need to, and sunglasses too but let the light fill you until it's overflowing and feel the peace and joy that summer brings.

Live easy and live sweet...namaste.
