    Enjoyed listening to your podcast. So happy you are sorting things out. Your focus is the same as ours except as Christians we have faith in God’s Spirit working in us. Read Galatians 5 in the new living translation which was my meditation this morning. Look forward to more discussion next week during our visit.

    I had the pleasure of volunteering at Le Studio when it was just opening 2 yrs ago. Erik & Genevieve took me in like family. I have since moved from Montreal, but have fond memories of the yoga community they have created there. While I knew a bit of his background, it was nice to learn some more details. Thanks for Connecting the Dots!
