Forgiveness is one of those things in our society that we really gloss over. Something horrible happens to us, and if we’re are lucky we have deep friends who are there by our side, willing to listen to us – for as long as we need – as we find forgiveness for those who’ve done us wrong. (I am so grateful to have friends like this). But many aren’t that lucky. Some get a 3 month grace period from family and friends, after a major divorce, severe betrayal or a death, and after that they get the trite and cliche phrases of “let it go” “get over it” and “suck it up”.  This may shut people up, but it is unhelpful in the long run. It actually shuts down the process leading to forgiveness. Our society can seem allergic to emotions, trying to rid ourselves of them as soon as possible, but humans don’t work like that. Forgiveness is inefficient and time consuming. But, totally, totally worth it. Yet, even in the best of situations, surrounded by good friends and having time to process the losses, most of us don’t have very good examples of what forgiveness is. All the stories in all the world focus on overcoming the obstacles,  getting the girl, and perhaps getting revenge. Anger is powerful, and it’s easier to blame and slay your enemy. But Hollywood movies and popular stories don’t go into how forgiveness is given, or the long, slow process it can take to construct it. So, in my own path to forgiveness, I have created this flow chart in an attempt... read more

Daily differences of living in France

It is incredibly lucky to be living in France, the country of love, of beauty and a rich cultural history. But the learning curve during any kind of immigration is high, and some of my ideological values oppose the values this culture espouses. More than that, some of the daily cultural tasks take some getting used to. Here are a few things that’s taken me 8 months to find anywhere close to normal. 1. Shutters Photo from AlicekeysMD – she loves shutters France loves barricading themselves into their house. They have gates they lock and shutters they close after dark every night. It’s pure black rooms where you can’t see yourself go to the bathroom at night. I find it terrifying and disorienting inside my own house. My boyfriend has learned to keep all the shutters open for me, and let the dim light in the moon shine in when the insomnia kicks in. Thank goodness – the pure black is just too much. I love waking up to the natural light on my face, and the experience of shutters-closed awakenings leaves me groggy nearly all day. 2. Locking from the inside Again, barricading from the inside, the French make sure no one can get in or out of their domicile in any hurry. Considering how often I lose my keys with my ADD brain, I’ve managed to lock myself in the house on countless occasions. Canadian locks don’t need keys from the inside, and the level of anxiety I feel when I can’t get out of the house is incredible. I lived in a family that didn’t lock... read more

What People are Saying About Dawn

Since we met Dawn back in 2011, she has been a fundamental part of our planning and outreach. She is the best kind of advisor – someone who’s not afraid to tell you that you’re doing something terrible, when needed, but also who suggests positive solutions to problems you didn’t even know you had. We’ve spent three years getting better and better, and Dawn has played an important part in that. Nick Broad, founder

The Busking Project

Dawn Marie is an incredible instructor and coach. Her class was pack and she still managed to offer an amazing workshop with lots of personal attention. Her class was one of the highlights of the festival and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great coach. Carisa Hendrix, director of Prop Fest Alberta

Dawn is a professional, expert in her field of expertise who made the 2 hour workshop feel like a walk in the park. At the end, everyone felt that they accomplished what looked impossible at the beginning and felt the time just flew by. Joe Nifco
