I spent this time on focusing my “highest and best use of vital energy” on vital tasks. If I had been so focused on work, yet distracted by sex, then it was time to truly focus on this work. On school, on personal development, on herHABITAT, on moving across the country, on my non-sexual relationships…After 7 months I had effectively decided and planned to move across the country, finished school getting 100% on my last exam, travelled to Halifax 3 times… and on.Read more
Bellydancing For Self-Care /
Working with us to create safe spaces for exploration of movement and emotions in our community, this is one of our favourite ways to pair up these often opposing parts of the self. But the true craft of these workshops lays not in the specific pairings, but in that it shows you a unique way of pairing up passions. Of being able to encompass the entirety of yourself – or at least more than one aspect. It is about collaboration on a multitude of levels.

They are a reminder to stay balanced, and to honour the different cycles of the world and self, that often balance is not in the total equilibrium but in the ability to let these energies stay balanced in their own ebbs and flows. In their times of strength and weakness to support each other, like I must learn to do with myself.Read more
We need to acknowledge why the things we want to do, but don’t, are challenging.
That’s it. It’s that simple. We look at the things we want for our lives but not the roadblocks. We push ourselves up blindly against the things that hold us back and look so hopefully at what we want we don’t realize why we can’t truly have it.
I was always in such a rooted, permanent state of anxiety that eventually when the stress bottled up to be too much my fight or flight would kick in full force. I didn’t have bad days. I had explosive ones. I was scared to be happy and comfortable.Read more
How do you think you are seen in the world?
I think people in general have a hard time understanding my choices. We’re all so driven to save money for when we get old, that we miss out on our young lives and arrive at year 80 full of regret. I’m happy that I’ve decided to live in the moment, because I can choose to change my life and do different things whenever I want to. In a sense, it’s like time travel. When I’m too old to do any of this, I won’t be able to change the past. In essence, it just doesn’t click with people. Questions like, “What will you do when you’re older? When will you start to save money? Do you think you’ll eventually decide to live a normal life? What about a career?” are the type that I receive on a daily basis. And the people who ask me those questions should be ashamed of themselves. Snap out of it, the definition of an accomplished life is solely my decision. I’d rather have a sea of memories than a business card which gives my existence a certain status.Read more
Are you who you want to be? Who is that person?
Of course! We all should be who we want to be, regardless of if we believe it or not. Who am I? I’m Amy Jo. I’m a lover, giver and creator.Read more
What are your expectations for yourself?
I have really high expectations, like, I try to own my shit. It’s easy to point out the fault in others without doing your own accounting first. I try to be a demonstration of balance and take responsibility for my actions.
