It is Thursday afternoon, my favourite time of the week. I am about to host the next session of my Yoga of Stress Resilience program. In this session, we discuss the topic that has brought us all together – Burnout. This group is made up  entirely of helping profession...

Summertime always throws me off the wagon. Not alcohol — I don’t drink. I mean, off the wagon of routine. The higher temperatures and humidity of summer, the laissez-faire days, create a heaviness that seems to block my daily intentions. It is one reason I welcome Sept...

It would be remiss for me to not say that it takes a while to adjust to eating Indian food. I mean, I eat it almost everyday at home. However, eating out is different or so I am reminded.

The house in which I am staying has an amazing chef, and everything is made it ord...

After breakfast, I slowly made my way out to explore the neighbourhood. I did have a

few things to do – like get a cell phone number, and figure out where my training was going to be.  

It was surprisingly cool outside. Usually Chennai is heavy with humidity. I didn’t f...

I came down to a table set for three, though there is no one else. It is dead silent.

I walk into the kitchen. It is clean and appears empty. No sign of food. I am starving, having eaten very little since the day before.

Here I am once again on a plane. I am going to India. It is ironic. I used to hate going - the long ride, the billions of people. I mean, I love where I am from in India and love seeing my family, however getting there and adjusting to the other side of the world was a...

I'm stuck home with the flu right now and I’m the worst sick person. Not that I whine or complain. No, I am the opposite. I do not allow myself to rest. I keep going and pushing through until my body physically says no, and I can barely get up to get to the bathroom....

It is finally time to shed the dark and heavy cloak of 2017.

Good Riddance! 

As we face the first few days of the New Year, it is a natural time to look forward to what we may want to bring forth into 2018.

Many of you may have resolved to make changes, and much encourage...

The other day, I had the most incredible experience.

I went to a workshop in East End – the other side of town, a place I rarely go to anymore. The workshop was in a tiny dark community theatre space in Leslieville. I knew none of the other 20 people in the room except...
