High Park Cherry Blossoms

Every year, the cherry blossoms bloom in High Park, and the whole area is inundated with visitors. This year, it was just as busy as years past, but I always try to brave the crowds at least once to check out the pretty pink trees (and get some pictures, of course!). The park’s 2,000 trees…

The Earth Laughs in Flowers

As far as inanimate objects go, flowers are the closest we can get to the spiritual world on earth. They are truly God’s gifts to the world, and they never fail to elevate my mood when I’m near them. I once read a book called the Flower Arrangement about a woman who quit her job…

Just Doing Me

Today, I decided to change my blog name back to Kenzie Patterson. I had fun with That Spiritual Chick for a while, but I ultimately realized that it wasn’t me, and it wasn’t sustainable as my personal brand. I think in the digital world, we place so much emphasis on finding a brand or a…

Aromatherapy Products I’m Currently Loving

The weather in Toronto has been absolutely dreary this weekend: insane winds, a non-stop snowstorm, cold, slush—the works.

How to Decide On A 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program

When I enrolled in my 200-hour yoga teacher training program two years ago, I didn’t put much thought into it. I knew I wanted to study yoga, so I did some research on the best programs in Toronto, called Downward Dog Yoga Centre, and as fate would have it, the program was starting that day—within…

How to Overcome Shyness if You’re an Introvert

Do you consider yourself an extrovert, an introvert or an ambivert (a mix of both)? Personally, I think all of these labels are totally limiting, and I don’t really believe in any of them. We’re complex human beings with a zillion different thoughts, emotions, and motivations all vibrating at different frequencies, and yet, we all…
