STEPPING INTO BRAVERY: We are all in an uncertain situation at the moment and many companies have already decided to lay people off. It is very scary when we don’t know where the next paycheque is coming from or when our lives will be back to ‘normal’.

Join Vanessa McDonald, who has taken her own personal experience to start a new journey as the founder of Courage Creator and author of The Brave Journal. She says: “Without the clarity of when our brothers and sisters in the healthcare industry will be able to gain control over Covid-19, it can be hard for many of us to watch from home as they are fighting this on the front line for the rest of us. You may be at home but, you do have a choice right now. Either surrender to victimhood or wait for someone to tell you what to do. Or, you can access your inner leader now and make the decision for yourself. Let’s help each other find our own sense of bravery on our own terms.”

You can read more about Vanessa in our Q&A “Being Brave in 2020“.

TRAVEL KNITTING CIRCLE: Somehow, travel and knitting/crochet (or just a love of things crafty) seem to go hand in hand. 

Join us for our first-ever exploration into all things yarn with our JourneyWoman webmistress Melissa Fox and yarn queen Amanda Caswell. We’re going to talk fibre faves, WIPs that are keeping you sane (or driving you crazy), and those projects that fit in an overhead bin (or, as we prefer, comfortably under the seat in front of us). So get comfortable in your favourite chair, bring your recently finished projects, pour a glass of your beverage of choice and let’s get knitting!

THE SECRETS OF BEESBees are crucial to our planet’s ecosystem, and they’ve also been declared an endangered species. Beekeeper Tita Manice has travelled all over the world and met with beekeepers in Africa, Italy, Bhutan, France and Bali (to name a few) and will share her perspective on what we can do to protect our bee population.  Tita also produces Best Bee Savvy, an antibacterial, antifungal salve used by travellers to protect them from disease. She’ll show us her hives (which contain over 60,000 bees each), and speak to the critical role of the Queen Bee from her farm in Vermont, and what we can learn from them about hope, renewal and resilience.  

More detail to follow!

We always strive to use real photos from our own adventures, provided by the guest writer or from our personal travels. However, in some cases, due to photo quality, we must use stock photography. If you have any questions about the photography please let us know.
