I am 16 years old, the last few years of my life have been tumultuous, and in this moment I am sitting on the windy ridge of a mountain. The sun is well on its way to the West, as I reflect upon the pristine landscape. I listen to Moon who is ready to rise and […]

Stepping Beyond: Educo’s First Adult Wilderness Rites of Passage Course.

What happens when a group of people gather, with full permission to explore their outer and inner nature?

Mirrors in the Sunrise

Nervous glances are projected around a circle of 15 people. Looking closely at any other person in that circle, one can see the reflections of fear, doubt, self-consciousness, admiration, excitement and love.

Creating Community

I’m presently sitting in a coffee shop in Vancouver, facing out the window onto Main street. Pastel-pink petals are falling, like snow, onto the pavement and parked cars.

Birthday Blog- With Fresh Eyes…

It’s April 11th, 2013- I wake up, in my birthday suit, to the joyful song of the birds and the curious light of dawn peaking through the blinds. I feel so much love inside my soft skin, down to the depths in my bones. My mind, body and heart radiate a beautiful and powerful energy, […]
