On Saturday, Feb 13, 2016 meet at 4:30 at Lakewood and Central Valley Greenway, OR 4:45pm at Renfrew Skytrain Station, for the annual Crow Roost Twilight Bike Ride!  We will follow the crows on the Central Valley Greenway (5km round trip).  Dress for the weather, bring snacks to share and bike lights.  This is a FREE family-friendly event and is organized by Still Moon Arts Society and Windermere Bike Society.

On the banks of beautiful Still Creek in Burnaby, BC i worked with a group of community artists and the Still Moon Arts Society to create the Spirit Fish Festival.

Kyira Korrigan helped me create this Invitation to Mindful Moment    which I image recreating in Stanley Park some day.

INVITATION
You are invited to pass through this arch and into a mindful moment.

Step 1: This journey will be undertaken in silence.

Pause a moment before entering; breathe deeply and let go of words.
When ready, announce your intention to proceed with a ring of the bell.

Step 2: Find a place to comfortably stand near the river. WATCH YOUR STEPS, WHERE YOU PUT YOUR FEET! When you arrive, return your gaze to your surroundings.  Here a river flows.

 Pause for a moment, and listen. What is the dominant sound? Explore the components of the background you are immersed in. Listen a bit longer—let a minute or two pass.

Step 3: As you exit, you may choose to ring the bell again to sound completion of your mindfulness.
