Moksha Halloween

"Once upon a time, in a land very, very close, so close in fact, that you can probably feel it directly beneath you, there was a Hallowe’en party about to begin. It was a costume party, which surprisingly everyone decided to dress up for as yogi’s, except for one girl, who was a queen of hearts with a really great hair cut, and a retired Thai Chef, who also sported really, really great hair!"

My life purpose is to teach peace. I have known this for some time now; for some time I have also struggled in translating this purpose into action. At times I have been unclear on how to teach peace. When E became a yoga teacher, I realized that is exactly what she was doing. Through yoga, she was showing people what peace feels like. Most people want to live a life of peace, and they want to see peace on earth, but they have no idea what peace actually feels like. For the moments when I am practicing yoga, I feel peace, so I know that peace exists. I want to provide this experience for others! I want to help other people feel peace and trust that peace exists. That is the first step in creating peace in our communities and in our world.

nexus blog.: Awesome Happens Here

Hey, this all sounds really, really cool! Especially the yoga in the park! Maybe I’ll see you there ;)

That’s the City of Kitchener’s slogan right now and they’re absolutely right. There are a ton of great things happening around the downtown this summer and I will do my best to keep you up to date on them..

Yoga in the Park:  On Sundays from 4-5pm there will be yoga in Victoria Park (near the Schneider’s St entrance).  It’s free but they are collecting donations for the Working Centre.  Find out more here: http://queenstreetyoga.com/workshops

Tooney Tuesdays: This has something to offer to the young and old alike! Plan on spending Tuesday nights at City Hall for fantastic family fun that includes musical performances and so much more! Admission is free, however, donations of a tooney are encouraged. Proceeds go to Family and Children Services. Visit Kitchener.ca for more information.

Cruising on King Street - July 13: The cruise starts with a show and shine in our beautiful Victoria Park. At 7:00pm the cars file out of the park and cruise down King Street leaving 50,000 spectators in awe! After cruising the streets of Downtown Kitchener these classic cars park on King Street from Francis to Cedar until approximately 10:00pm.  More information here: http://kitchenerdowntown.com/event/cruising-on-king/

World’s Longest Picnic - Sunday, July 15: We need EVERYONE to help us beat the current record for Longest Picnic, set in Germany in 2009 with a picnic spanning nearly 2 km.  Participation is FREE for this event!  Make your way to downtown Kitchener starting at 11 am; official measuring begins at noon, so sit tight while the final numbers are recorded.  The proposed route will run down King Street from Francis to Frederick, then up and back along Duke Street.  http://kitchenerdowntown.com/event/guinness-worlds-longest-picnic-attempt-presented-by-zehrs-markets/

These are just a few of the events that are being offered in the busy summer season.  A great way to stay informed is by liking the Kitchener BIA on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Downtown-Kitchener-BIA/251192113469  Also, the Nexus Facebook page lists many events you may be interested in so check that out too!

Also, if you’re interested in finding out a bit of the history of the downtown area, then swing by the Victoria Park Gallery.  This little building at the Schneider St entrance (it houses the public washrooms for the park as well) has some great items to look at and/or purchase.  Local historian rych mills will be there to answer any of your local history questions.  The gallery is open on weekend and holiday afternoons and it’s free.

This was a totally magical day, I’m so honoured to have been able to take part!
250 kids doing yoga, “surfing the waves” in Warrior 2, and breathing together, outside under blue skies = incredible!

OUR PASSION PROJECT! My friend and I made these because we wanted a way to tell people that they are special, especially strangers who are hard to talk to but who are oh so lovable!  We would be thrilled to have as many people as possible, loving as many other people as possible- sharing words of affirmation, encouraging others, and fostering community through making new connections! :)

Pass out a SEEN CARD and pass on a SMILE!

seencards:

A way to:

  • inspire
  • encourage
  • share love
  • spread joy
  • build community
  • make a stranger smile
  • appreciate and affirm others
  • connect with those who cross our path (friends, family, strangers etc) and celebrate!

How they work:

It’s really up to you, although we invite you to be as bold and as brave as possible!

Maybe:

  • Give a card to that person you ride the subway with every day but have never spoken a word to…
  • Tap someone on the shoulder and leave them your message without the possibility of ever seeing them again…
  • Surprise your boss, co-worker, spouse, sibling, best friend, child etc by letting them know how you admire them!!!

Open yourself to truly SEE people, then leave your comfort zone let them know how special they are!

Share your story:

Share the love! Send us a photo of your SEEN CARDS and/or description of why that particular person inspired you, or how you felt knowing you inspired someone else, to seencards@gmail.com. Who knows, they might read it and post their own experience back!

Where to get SEEN CARDS:

E-mail us at seencards@gmail.com and we’ll send you the PDF!

Thanks for reading.

YOU ARE WONDERFUL! :)

If you don’t get what you want, you suffer;
if you get what you don’t want, you suffer;
even when you get exactly what you want,
you still suffer because you can’t hold on to it forever.
Your mind is your predicament.
It wants to be free of change, free of pain, free of the obligations of life and death. But change is a law, and no amount of pretending will alter that reality.
