Apps! The Solution to All of Your Problems. …ok, maybe, but how do I use them?!? I am definitely guilty of suggesting apps to people without sending along some tips to make using them effective and easy. I have learned that simply suggesting an app to use is not enough. Teaching people how to integrate the technology […]
We had an amazing teaching webinar with Eckhart Tolle. You can click here to watch the replay of The Power of Presence webinar now.
During the webinar, Eckhart shared with us the major barriers to Presence and how to overcome them.
He also gave us some practical ideas and practices that we can use to deepen the realization of Presence in our lives.
This may be one of the most important teachings you’ll watch this year. Access it here:
We also just opened up Eckhart’s new online course, The Power of Presence. This landmark course was created to support us in this transformational journey at a time when the shift in consciousness is important for the future of our world.
Enjoy the webinar and check out the course details on the replay page.

S.A.G.E. youth group with be hosting a fundraiser on May 23rd from 6pm-9pm. The fundraiser will be located at the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre. The fundraiser will include live music, delicious food, local art and a silent auction.
S.A.G.E. supports young people who identify outside of the gender binary. The group currently runs once a month and is completely funded by a local donor. We are gracious for the support that we have received, but young people in the group have voiced that meeting only once a month is not enough. The funds raised will go towards increasing the frequency of group meetings, to provide young people with the support they have been requesting.
I am attaching the poster, please distribute widely!
**Also, if anyone is in a position to donate to the silent auction, your support would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your consideration and kindness.

News from CMHA Hamilton
Good morning. I am connecting with you because believe it or not next week is Mental Health Week. Always the first week of May and we have lots of exciting things happening in the community next week.
One thing that is taking place across this beautiful country of ours is encouraging everyone to Shine Green for Mental Health next week. There are a number of ways in which you can do this. If you have a home or business light it up green and upload your information to the website listed below so we can thank you and support you on social media. Or you can dress in green and use the #GETLOUD and upload a pic and show your support that way.
Our goal is to truly make this more than a week but a movement and a shift in the way we talk about mental health in our community.
Thank you for your support.
Take care, Jill
