I love being outdoors. Walking, hiking, biking and swimming. I use my yoga mat quite a bit to ground myself. Knitting also helps me slow down. Rin and i meditate most mornings to start off the day. And i often have my nose inside a book! reading about adventures lived and to discover new ways to think and to eat!
I enjoy making coloured pencil drawings and allowing my watercolours to speak. I also love writing and illustrating. One day i would like to illustrate and to write a book! I taught art for many years as well…in Africa, in B.C….with teenagers and with adults.
For 25 years i have been practicing massage therapy, 16 years now in Sooke. I am a RMT by training but i think I am always learning about embodiment with the people who entrust me to unwind places of mind-body tension. It is a miracle every-time…witnessing how people heal themselves. I liken this work to that of a sherpa; i accompany a journey.
Rin and i have explored quite a few cohousing projects in theory and WWH is the one we chose to jump into. Partly because of its location on a lovely waterfront property, partly because of the intriguing folk who are gathering, and partly because we are getting older and it is time to live the experiment and to surprise ourselves with our discoveries…challenges and all!
