Discovering inner peace at a yoga class led Stacy Chang-Christoforou down a path of mindfulness that she now shares with her local community as a conscious lifestyle coach in Toronto.

I have coined myself a “conscious lifestyle coach”. Continue Reading…

How long have you been working in the events and festival space?
A: I’ve been at the forefront of Toronto’s nightlife scene since 1999. You could say that I’ve touched all areas in the scene over the years. From throwing weekly residencies at all the major clubs, investing in a couple of venues and co-founding a couple of major festivals.

K: I have been involved in events all over Jamaica since 2001. I gathered with my best friends and started a party series, we created an environment that was fresh and delivered an experience from the moment  you walked in. Continue Reading…

As A Backpacker, I Learnt This While Travelling

By Nikki Majewski

Travelling as a backpacker has been the greatest learning experience of my life. For the past decade, I’ve honoured simplistic travel by journeying afar for long stints of time with nothing but the essentials on my back.

During those wayfaring years, my default choice was to ‘rough it’ – it’s certainly not the way most people choose to vacation – but for me, each trip was an adventure and each adventure offered up new learning opportunities.

Gillan B

By Andrea Delgado

To live consciously is to be happy. At least that’s how I felt after interviewing Self-Care Teacher and yoga guru Gillian B.  She has all the credentials, an applied human nutrition degree from the University of Guelph and a yoga teacher tenure stretching 8 years. But it wasn’t always this rosy for Gillian.

“I am proud to say that I have healed drug addiction, eating disorders, paralyzing anxiety, burnout and numerous food allergies – all of which were the direct result of inner misalignments and an untamed, unchecked mind,” she says.

By Andrea Delgado

I think most people can relate when I say that packing is a pain in my chakras!

First you have to figure what the weather will be like, how long you’re travelling for and what on earth you’ll do when you get there!

I used to be a serial over-packer and I know most of you reading know what I’m talking about. But then I read into the concept of minimalism and it changed how I packed for a vacation for ever!

Minimalist travel are the first steps to simplifying life.

You need to know this about Ganja in Jamaica

Ganja

By Andrea Delgado

Ganja in Jamaica is earning a new reputation.

“Growing up as a Rastafarian, I decided I was not going to sit down and watch Rastafari and grass roots people being continually persecuted for a plant.” – Ras Iyah-V

Cannabis is one of the most commonly-used herbs around the world. Despite deep roots in Jamaican culture, dating back to the 1920s, ganja was only legalized by the Ministry of Jamaica in 2015. For the first time in decades, Jamaicans can now use the herb for personal, medicinal and religious uses. For those that embrace a Rastafari lifestyle, this recent legislation although strongly enforced, was a progressive step toward the acceptance of marijuana use.
