It is Thursday afternoon, my favourite time of the week. I am about to host the next session of my Yoga of Stress Resilience program. In this session, we discuss the topic that has brought us all together – Burnout. This group is made up  entirely of helping profession...

Summertime always throws me off the wagon. Not alcohol — I don’t drink. I mean, off the wagon of routine. The higher temperatures and humidity of summer, the laissez-faire days, create a heaviness that seems to block my daily intentions. It is one reason I welcome Sept...

This World Cup has been interesting. Although I haven’t been watching all the games as closely as I had in the past, but like many, I have been involved in an office pool. We are a largely international clinic, with a majority of Latin Americans, and even though there...

After breakfast, I slowly made my way out to explore the neighbourhood. I did have a
