Gratitude Bowl

Gratitude is defined as: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for  and to return kindness. 
Thanksgiving is a day where we reflect on all of the people and experiences in our lives that we are thankful for, but the daily practice of expressing gratitude is a powerful force that has immense benefits including  just making us feel good! 

From October 2nd to 16th, we invite you to help us fill the Bowl of Gratitude once again...

Beyond Food Drive
We will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Kanata Food Cupboard
from Friday, September 29th to Friday, October 13th. Please help us fill the box located outside of the Sky room.

YOGA BEYOND WORDS with Cara-Lynne 
When the world turns black...
