A change in season

The shift from one season to next is definitely underway here in Toronto. The mornings and evenings are cool (so good for sleeping) and the daytime sun warms the shoulders in such a comforting way.

This change in season invites us to think about what lies ahead and how we’d like meet it. We’re happy to offer some time and space for just that sort of contemplation with our online retreats.
