ABOUT THE COURSE:
This course is a response to the massive changes occurring in our social climate. Its purpose is to create a community space to generate awareness of current issues, and share resources that help people move through the fear of change with grace, compassion, and intention.
We explore a range of topics through meditation, media, guest speakers and charitable donations.
This endeavour will create a network of support for individuals and groups through education, reflective practices, holding and facilitating of safe spaces for mindful discussions. The intention is to facilitate activism and social change on a personal and collective level where we are co-creating a new relationship of thriving for everyone.
Topics change each month and are chosen so the course alternates between active social issues in our external world, and reflective practices that support change internally.
We just wrapped up our first topic of Anti-Racism and with gratitude we are happy to share that we donated $350 (the studio's net profit) to the Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion.

Please read this review for more information:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17607.All_About_Love
Here is an excerpt:
All About Love offers radical new ways to think about love by showing its interconnectedness in our private and public lives. In eleven concise chapters, hooks explains how our everyday notions of what it means to give and receive love often fail us, and how these ideals are established in early childhood. She offers a rethinking of self-love (without narcissism) that will bring peace and compassion to our personal and professional lives, and asserts the place of love to end struggles between individuals, in communities, and among societies. Moving from the cultural to the intimate, hooks notes the ties between love and loss and challenges the prevailing notion that romantic love is the most important love of all.
