“Vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage.” - Brené Brown

A note from me.

The most exciting things in this letter of news are a reminder about the final YOGA: The Missing Pieces session coming up on Wednesday, June 19 and the addition of a new section I am calling Taking Care. Keep reading to see what it is all about! 

I've been feeling under the weather recently, so I wasn't able to gather together everything I was hoping to put in this newsletter. In particular, I wanted to follow up about my transformational experience in the 30x30 Nature Challenge, but I will have to wait to tell you all about it in July.

Have a wonderful June!

Taking Care

I've had a request for the sort of information that I would categorize as "information that helps guide a yogic lifestyle." What do I mean by yogic lifestyle? Most simply, I mean a considered life. A life where we consider the implications of the things we do, say, and buy, and subsequently make decisions that align with our values. 

This first edition of Taking Care explores an eating decision you might make to support your health and the health of our planet. 

The City of Vancouver has proclaimed Monday, June 10th (this coming Monday!) as Meatless Monday. You may have already heard of the Meatless Monday movement -- the first Meatless Monday happen during World War I. 

Meatless Monday is not about becoming a vegetarian. It’s about healthy, sustainable eating, and it’s about reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Recommended Read
I recently recommended Waking the Tiger by Peter Levine to a friend, and after I did, I made a note to recommend it in my newsletter as well. For me, it is a must-read for human beings. It offers a beautiful and compassionate look at the human experience of trauma. 

We Are Delicious

As I allude to in my most recent blog post, I do a fair number of hippie-like things that probably aren't socially acceptable - yet! If you have similar habits and sometimes feel badly that your partner or room mate(s) have to put with your shenanigans, you might enjoy this blog post by Crunchy Betty. 
Quote Note

"What is good for nature is good for humanity, what is good for one is good for all, what is good for the mind is good for the body. Hence, to harm a part is to harm the whole.

What is bad for the heart is bad for the body, what damages one person damages all people, what injures the earth injures me.

Conversely, to restore and preserve the health of one body and mind is to foster the well being of the whole, the earth and all life upon it."

From the book, Between Heaven and Earth
Harriet Beinfield and Efrem Korngold
