Diwali in Vernon Festival: Yin Yoga Class @ Soul Studio 
A more passive approach to yoga. The postures are held for longer periods which allows for deeper opening into the connective tissues. This is a popular option for tight sore bodies and for yoga beginners, due to the slower pace. Yin yoga offers both physical and meditative benefits. It is a wonderful compliment to a more active “yang like” exercise regimen.

Writing Through Grief with Janelle Hardy @ Caetani Cultural Centre
Writing Through Grief is about witnessing and allowing for the full range of feelings that come with loss.
It’s hard to grieve fully and deeply when grieving is not honoured or supported, and when the people and culture around you feel so uncomfortable with your feelings and their own. How do we grieve when we’ve never seen anyone go through a healthy grieving process? How do we grieve when we can’t cry around our loved ones? How do we grieve when we don’t know how?
Writing Through Grief is a discovery of the beauty that comes on the other side of grief. The sparkling moments of joy and connection, all of which are only possible because of the grieving that has been done – the crying of tears, the anger, the sadness, the acceptance of how unfair life can be. It is through honouring our grief that we come to understand and honour our joy better.
In this series we’ll use a writing circle format with creative writing prompts to explore and move through your grief in a deep, kind and joyful way.

Charley, a teen living with his single father, finds work caring for an aging racehorse named Lean On Pete. When he learns Pete is bound for slaughter, the two embark on an odyssey across the new American frontier in search of a place to call home.
“This is not a movie about a boy and his horse. It is something far more grueling and merciless, and as the film reveals itself in an increasingly jaw-dropping series of vignettes, it's likely to leave you in tatters.” - Jeffrey Bloomer, Slate
