What are we here for?

Dec 12, 2013

Local Vancouver Island Fundraising Effort for the Philippines Relief  












Yoga for the Philippines - Cowichan

 What a wonderful few hours in community to share our healing hearts and our abundance with the Philippines:)

Our community raised a whopping $2308.85!!! 

And since it will be matched by the government, that equals $4617.70!!

Such Gratitude For Everyone that made this happen- the organizers, those that donated, those that helped in any way- and all of the participants

More local fundraising is happening: Everyone Deserves a Smile is collecting in many different communities on Vancouver Island for people who are homeless this winter. Socks, Toques, Scarves, decorated cookies, as well as, toothbrushes and toothpaste are in a gift bag this season. Mon Petit Choux in Nanaimo is a drop off point and Yoga Weyr is collecting, as well.


A Deeper Materialism: Michael Stone at TEDxToronto

"What if we scrapped the whole idea of spirituality and we replaced it with a deeper love of the material? People say that we are materialistic, but I don't think that's true. We are not materialistic enough. Being materialistic means loving the material. It means loving our sidewalks, our lakes, our inventions... We need a deeper materialism."

The fifth annual TEDxToronto conference took place on September 26, 2013 at The Royal Conservatory of Music. Michael Stone spoke on "A Deeper Materialism."
