Fun and Ice at the Toronto Yoga Show!

My helper/daughters and I had so much fun at the Toronto Yoga Show this past weekend! There is such a great vibe at this show and so much to see and do!

Winter Forest Walk in Peace

Our daughters lead the way on our holiday celebration hike in the forest. We arrived in a snow squall, took note of the new "Beware of Bears" sign at the trailhead and headed in for a mostly silent walk. I love walking in silence, keenly aware of the beauty of the forest covered in fresh white snow falling, sheltered from the driving wind. There so much possibility in the sleeping covered forest floor and the fresh newness of the trail  - a future yet to be translated; and we breathed it all in with peace, gratitude, and love.
