I met Serena Bufalino at Downwarddog Yoga Studio in Toronto, were we both practice yoga, and only recently did I find out what an incredible force of nature she is. She moves through her life with a clear sense of purpose rooted in service to people who need it most. As a teacher she works with Some of Toronto's most at risk students, and with them has embarked on an inspiring school building journey in Haiti. Serena was recently awarded with The MacMaster Arch Award, which is a provincial award that recognizes past graduates and the good work that they have gone on to do since graduating, for the amazing work she has been doing.

Read her interview here and how all the money she fundraises goes directly into the community. https://zennomad.ca/blogs/blog/118581380-from-1-class-room-to-a-3-story-school-serena-bufalino-shares-her-inspiring-haiti-school-building-project


When the school is complete it is meant to serve as both and elementary and secondary school during the day and then adult learning and trades programs in the evening.



All donations can be made on Serena's website: www.haitischoolbuildingproject.com and people can reach Serena at info@haitischoolbuildingproject.com. All donations are directly applied to the school and come with a tax receipt.

As well for the next 30 days www.zennomad.ca will be donating 15% of all online sales to the Haiti School Building Project.

 May 7th - 14th we're getting Wild At He(art) in Costa Rica in May 2016 & we want YOU to join us!

What's it all about, really?

Well, we take several parts movement (no previous yoga experience is necessary!), add a dash of meditation (aka sun worshipping & moon-gazing), creative expression (write, draw, photograph, sing, play) all wrapped up in the arms of Mama Nature in her most unruly & magnificent forms.

[Insert the hum-rush of the ocean here, & a vibrant rainbow or two for the awe-effect here.]

Our working theory is that we've retreated too far away into our towers made of concrete & glass, trading sun beams in for artificial light, giving up the sweep of the wind for air conditioning ... you know—essentially, forgetting who we are, the art of play—&, the good it does our wild hearts to imagine anything is possible.

Would you benefit from taking some time, unwinding and reflecting with yoga and meditation?

Would being immersed in the sounds and sights of Costa Rica’s most naturally diverse rainforest and tropical beauty would inspire and delight you?

Does the idea of doing yoga overlooking the ocean and to the sounds of its ebb and flow makes you fill with bliss?

Are you ready to refresh your system with great local, tropical, fresh healthy organic food?

Sometimes we need to take a little time out from everyday life in order to refresh and repair. Assess our attention to what needs healing and what practices we need to get into, like yoga and meditation, to be able to move through our daily lives from a more open and loving place.
Spending a week by the ocean, listening to the waves, doing yoga in the open air, being nurtured by the energy and foods of the rainforest, having the time to meditate and contemplate and simply enjoy be~ing is an environment that can be hugely rejuvenating and healing for the the mind, body and spirit.

If you are ready to invest in your own well being and would like to join us  in Costa Rica on March 28th - April 4th visit www.zennomad.ca/costa-rica-yoga-retreat for more information. I look forward to creating a beautiful connective and rejuvenating experience for you.
