A call to respond

My partner and I took our teenage kids to Vancouver last weekend for a big-city adventure, forgetting that it happened to coincide with black friday. Despite the fact that I visit Vancouver several times a year, I’m always taken aback by the images of wealth and poverty side by side — homemade cardboard box homes tucked into vacant storefronts, a stone’s throw away from Gucci, Burberry and Chanel. Somehow it all co-exists with itself, the beggar holding the door to a shop selling a $2,300 t-shirt.

Thank you!

Autumn is a time for harvesting, for giving thanks.  In that spirit I wish to thank each and every one of you who came out to celebrate our 11th birthday.  We had an fun day offering our services to you in appreciation and gratitude for your support.  Many of you thanked me for the free classes and acupuncture we offered on our birthday.  For us the day was really about celebrating and gifting you!  Your support means that we get to continue our mission of serving the community —  supporting you in your healing journey.  So thanks for eleven amazing years.  We look forward to seeing you this fall and winter as you journey on your yoga mat and snooze in a recliner!   Michael
