Ray John Jr-Shield = this is a spirit empowering workshop. Where we re-learn how to respect ourselves and we look at how we see ourselves. When working on us we must start with the spirit because its the living force that keeps us in balance with life. The first session does that. The second session looks at how we can " let go " of things from the past. These sessions are intense because we are looking at ourselves. In order to help cleanse the earth, we must cleanse ourselves.
Sat 2-4:30pm These are two part workshops so you need to come at the beginning of the workshop.
Yoga Sessions with Award Winning Hamilton Yoga Institute Maintaining the Integrity of the Practice Schedule will be published soon. Children & Seniors sessions too.

I'm happy to organize a Cargo Bike Roll Call for Hamilton (Hamilton's first?) for the Fix Our World Festival. Anyone and everyone in Hamilton with a cargo bike, cargo trike or bicycle/trailer combination is invited to show up on Saturday or Sunday (day to be determined via poll) to meet, greet and share the wonderful utility of cargo bikes and biking. Those of us who have a cargo bike of some sort--bicycle trailer (kid trailer or cargo trailer), longtail, long john, bakfiets, newspaper/butcher/personal delivery bike, or cargo trike--know how wonderful these human-powered vehicles are. Let's meet one another and share our cargo bikes, stories, accomplishments, and dreams with each other and with other Hamiltonians. If we can inspire more people to add a cargo bike, trike or trailer to their lives, we can make a direct and significant impact on fossil fuel use, carbon emissions, safe streets (incl. congestion, parking, road wear, pedestrian & cycling infrastructure), as well as the health of ourselves and our communities.
