Meditation is the only tool for us to quiet our minds 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.

Spend this weekend learning not to try to silence a mind that wants to go a hundred different directions simultaneously, but rather how to sit with and not attach to this chaos. Meditation opens us to each and every moment of our life.

One year ago, my friend appeared on my doorstep in the darkness and told me she had cancer. She’d come from a routine check-up and driven alone from Calgary, afraid to say the words out loud and make them real. I have cancer. A phrase that sticks to your tongue and the inside of your mouth, thick and vile. 

Women have specific nutritional requirements that differ from men. Increasing the intake of foods containing high levels of female-friendly vitamins and minerals supports health and wellness. Making rounded, thoughtful dietary choices is a deeply nourishing form of self-care.
