So much of what I talk about on the podcast is inspired by Gabor Mate., so much of what has helped me the most is based in his work. He is one of my biggest mentors and someone I am incredibly grateful for. // Three months ago I started the Compassionate Inquiry online course with Sat Dharan Kaur and Gabor Mate. It runs for a full year and so far it has been intense. I'm taking myself through emotions that I never knew where there and I'm watching my adult life change on a daily basis. // I'm so grateful for this past year. I'm so grateful not to be depressed anymore. I'm so grateful to FEEL EVERYTHING, the difficult and painful emotions and the fun and easy emotions. I'm so grateful to be able to share what knowledge I have gleaned, and to maybe impact a life or two. // Thank you for being here, thank you for listening, thank you for being a disciple to the many practices that change YOUR life for the better, thank you for sharing YOUR knowledge and experience. I'm grateful for all of you. // Follow the link in the profile to check out @theislandvortex podcast, the interviews, the meditations, the integrations and more, and don't forget to subscirbe ✌️

During last weekends quad adventure, we stopped for lunch in an area we use to take our kids camping. I’m definitely going to have to go back when I have more time to photograph all of the beautiful scenery. . . . . . . . . . . #beautifulvancouverisland #discovercampbellriver #discovervancouverisland #beautifulbc #islandlife #beautifulbritishcolumbia #canadianlandscape #imagesofcanada #westerncanada #vanislelife #nikon_canada #ldphotolab #nikon #pnwphotographer #lake #stumps #clouds #wildlycreative #weekendvibes #lovewhereyoulive #explorebc #exploremore

Success✨. • • Well friends we survived our first big camping trip. It’s fairly obvious that Miss A is a BIG fan of camping she loved being outside and waking up to friends around everyday. • • When they say it takes a village to raise a child they weren’t kidding btw because if it wasn’t for the mountain of help I got from all of my kickass friends (you know who you are 😘) I wouldn’t have been able to pull it off. So thank you to everyone who made this weekend possible, it was one for the books and the memories will last forever. • • Xo Sharann

NOURISH, CARE, SUSTAINE // Three words that I woud use to describe Kimiko's business philosophy. Would she descrive her business philosophy like that... I have no idea. But I absolutey LOVED her podcast with me on @theislandvortex last month. // Kimiko is the founder and owner of @miko.skinco and she's R A D and oh-so knowledgable about skin-care, sun-care, and all the ins and outs of the marketing world. I adore this conversation and have gotten so much out of it!! // Head over to the link in my profile, head to iTunes and go to epidsode #15 to hear more from Kimiko. Don't forget to hit subscribe. // PS. I stole this photo from the @miiko.skinco instagram page... this is NOT an ad, I just love Kimiko and her products that much and 100% support her sustainable and ethical brand 😍🌱

This class is kicking my ass I feel like I do nothing but sleep and study and work... why would I ever agree to take accounting in the summer?!? Looking forward to a bit of a weekend escape this weekend. A bit of exercise, some great views and delicious drinks 😋... And a long nap. Anyone else trying some weekend adventures?

There is no real purpose to adventure sports. You do it for fun, for challenge, for excitement, but it’s mostly illogical and irrational. “Here, climb up this mountain face using only your hands and feet”, “Jump in the freezing ocean and get 50 feet of air while strapped to a board”. Illogical, but also essential. . . . #kiteboarding #kitesurfing #kites #yyj #victoriabc #adventuresports #actionsports #superman #flying #mikophotographer #pnwphotographer #adventureanywhere #nikonadventures #exploremore #oceanrodeo #getoutside #watersports #oceanlife #surf #windy #dallasroad #sports #greatoutdoors #adventureland #vanislelife #beautifulbc #hellobc #dailyviewbc #cloverpointpark #adventuresports #nikonz6

You never want an editor to call back and ask if you have anything else. Give them options.

"C'est le vide qui crée l'appréciation du plein. Pour les moines il faut faire vœu de silence pour goûter le plaisir de parler, il faut jeûner pour savourer la nourriture, faire abstinence pour apprécier la puissance de l'acte charnel. C'est le silence qui nous apprend à jouir de la musique. C'est l'obscurité qui nous apprend à comprendre les couleurs." -Bernard Werber, le rire du cyclope . . . #glassballproject #glassball_photography #glassball_photos #agameoftones #literaturequotes #sharethecoast #lifeisoutside #moodygram #dreamermagazine #dreamer #splendid_view #cinematicphotography #imaginarymagnitude #taintedmag #hellobc #vanislelife #knowthismind #dreamer #dreamland #vanisletrue #onirism #onirique #nostalgia #somewheremagazine #exploretocreate #visualcreators #mood #hippievibe #frenchliterature #frenchygirl
