“Maybe this year won’t be the Green Party’s, here in this riding.

Maureen Curran, a member of SFU's Faculty of Education, is quoted. 

While other candidates are busy campaigning for votes, Curran is focused on protests.

Dr. Luc Beaudoin, Adjunct Professor, is mentioned. 

Kageyama suggests Beaudoin’s technique called Serial Diverse Imaging. First, you select a keyword like “blanket.” Starting with the first letter, you visualize things that start with it. They can be objects, activities, or even persons – banana, bread, bowling, your friend Billy. The key is that they are unrelated and will re-assure your brain that there’s no threat lurking nearby. When you get bored with the first letter, just move along. With any luck, you won’t make it to the last letter.

However little attention has been given to opening the body, which I believe is deeply connected to intuition, trauma, healing and shifting into new ways of being, reflecting and perceiving. I want a mind with body and a body with mind. And of course, heart, always."
