Sometimes, when the snow flies covering the Valley in a blanket of white, fluffy powder, instead of heading to the hill with the masses, a solo walk meandering in the trees is just what you need. Here are three of my three favourite places to “get lost” in winter.

Mt. Proctor - Fairy Creek Falls

Distance: 5km lout and back
Time: 1.5-2 hrs

Knowledge of the climbing lingo as well as understanding common mistakes and how to avoid making them can lead to a life of climbing without ever having to make a rescue call.

An introductory look at learning to meditate. When quiet our minds we find a peace that is effective and long term. When we stop looking outside of ourselves to find inner peace, when we stop thinking its going to be the next relationship, the next job, the next purchase that’s going to make us happy, we start looking within to seek solace.

During this session we will learn not to try to silence a mind that wants to go in a hundred different directions simultaneously, but rather how to sit with and not attach to this chaos.

The sun is shining, small plants are creeping out of the ground, and Wayne is ready to get his healthy lifestyle back on track. After chatting with friends at his local gym, Wayne decides to give the Whole 30 a try.

It’s an exciting time to be a woman, to witness the shift in the role of women in our society and the opportunities that will open up to us and to future generations of women as a result of this shift.
