Hello everyone! We are very happy to announce that our latest season of our weekly podcast has begun, entitled “Different from the Other Kids: Law & Disorder Edition,” featuring all new guests and interviews, along with some returning parents. We focus on the justice and education systems this time around, talking to those who have issues dealing with the “system” and how they progressed past it…

This week, we begin our series with Tash, a manager of Mental Health and Justice Programs in the city of Toronto. Tash talks about the work that she does with some of the most vulnerable members of our communities and how she brings her training in mindfulness and meditation into the workplace. Angela also explores Tash’s journey and asks how parents can work towards remaining centered in their daily lives on the “front line”. Click HERE to check out the links to the podcast!
