Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards
Size: 15 cm W X 29 cm H
25 Double-sided Interconnecting Cards, 6" x 9"

The word Yoga comes from Sanskrit and means to unite, to bring together, to connect.The Strong Body & Mind Yoga Cards connect the ancient practice of yoga with Indigenous culture. These cards celebrate connection as they invite all of us to honour our connection to each other, to our animal friends, to nature and spirit and to this amazing planet we all share. - Kathy Beliveau

The Yoga Practice:
Choose an individual card, or one of each colour to create a sequence, or several cards at once for a longer yoga practice. A practice with children may include making sounds. Invite the children to hoot like an owl or caw like a raven or growl like a bear!

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a yoga practice:
4 Green Opening Breath cards
8 Yellow Warm-up Pose cards
8 Purple Active Pose cards
4 Blue Closing Pose cards
~Kathy Beliveau

The Reflective Practice:
The reflective practice follows the Seven Sacred Teachings and incorporates Indigenous values. Our intention is to invite you to use one or more of these reflections to deepen your yoga experience either before, during, or after your practice. Choose a single card to respond to by yourself, with a friend, in a sharing circle or as a guide for journal writing.

The cards are colour coded into four aspects of a reflective practice:
8 Yellow Respect cards
Focus on respect and love to the world around us
4 Green Witness cards
Focus on humility, courage and interconnectedness
4 Blue Gratitude cards
Focus on the wisdom that surrounds us
8 Purple Connected cards
Focus on truth and honesty in all living beings

40 Million Salmon Can't be Wrong CD
40 Million Salmon Can’t Be Wrong weaves together songs, stories, art images and science in an electrifying stage show that helps people understand how we can bring back our wild salmon to historical levels of abundance. Acclaimed singer/songwriters Holly Arntzen and Kevin Wright, are joined onstage by the Wilds band (Shawn Soucy-drums, Brian Newcombe-bass, Bill Sample-keyboards, Andreas Schuld-guitar), renowned storyteller and artist Roy Henry Vickers and ocean ecologist Russ George.

The collapse of wild salmon runs is closely tied to the collapse of ocean plankton pastures. This was profoundly demonstrated by the eruption of Kastochi volcano in 2008, its dusting of the ocean pastures with mineral-rich volcanic ash, and the return of 40 million sockeye to the Fraser River in 2010.

A Good Day to Die: Dennis Banks & The American Indian Movement DVD
A Good Day to Die chronicles a movement that started a revolution and inspired a nation. By recounting the life story of Dennis Banks (The Last of the Mohicand, War Party), the Native American who co-founded the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968 to advocate and protect the rights of American Indians, the film provides an in-depth look at the history and issues surrounding AIM's formation. From the forced assimilation of Native Americans within boarding schools, to discrimination by law enforcement authorities, to neglect by government officials responsible for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, AIM sought redress for the many grievances that its people harboured.

Banks' personal struggle culminated in major armed confrontations at Custer, South Dakota and Wounded Knee climactic flash points which saw him standing steadfast as a leader for his cause. Bittersweet and compelling, A Good Day to Die charts the rise and fall of a movement that fought for the civil rights of American Indians.

All is Made Beautiful: Native American Traditions With Warrior Woman Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf DVD
Meet Oh Shinnah Fast Wolf, the internationally renowned Warrior Woman and elder of the Apache People. Long before the Green movement, Native Americans knew how to care for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

- Reduce stress and anxiety in your life
- Center yourself and connect to those around you
- Take charge and protect this planet for many generations to come

Oh Shinnah also reveals what she considers her most important work today: The Journey of the Waters, a sacred pilgrimage following the Apache trail of purification and transformation. Once a year, she and her most trusted student, Deep Arrow Woman, take an international group of non-native men and women on this journey through the mystical mountains and healing waters of New Mexico and Colorado. The participants utilize the healing power of nature to transform their lives. This truly is Ancient Wisdom for Modern People.

The documentary also features Nuclear Scientist and Astrophysicist Dr. Elizabeth Rauscher, who validates multiple Native traditions from the scientific point of view.
