Nobody can go it alone. It’s always better when we’re together.
One of the greatest perks of doing our own thing is that we have complete choice over whom to collaborate with and what projects we want to pour our energy into. It’s always been a dream to assemble our own group of superheroes.
Over the last few years, we have found like-minded souls who do amazing work for individuals, the community, and our mother earth. If you’re interested in coming on board and joining forces don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Here is our unique line-up of superheroes:
“The Wasteland Plan Foundation is a Toronto-based non-profit organization building conservation-centric communities, globally.

We met Savannah and Niki at an early morning Wim Hof session down at Humber Bay in 2021. We were doing our breathwork, cold dip and moving meditation, they were enjoying their practice of yoga and waterplay. Curiosity brought us together and it took about a few seconds of conversation for us to get excited to join forces and merge our paths. We’ve been along for the ride ever since delivering breathwork, movement and meditation at TWPF events. It’s been life changing for us, thank you friends!
“Break Free From The Mainstream Narrative Through The Power Of Community.”
TmrwTday’s mission to create a health conscious and powerful community of soul rebels fits right in with our passions. Steve met Stacey during a brief stint at MINDSETbraingym, a meditation centre where both taught and guided meditation. They hit it off and pretty soon he was bringing his unique style of breathwork and shadow work to the TmrwTDay community.
Besides the many local events, the TMRW TDAY crew curates holistic travel experiences in the Canadian Wilderness and abroad, like the annual Dream Camp in Algonquin Park (our favorite!). Please visit their site, follow on your socials and join this beautiful family.
“Through meditation, breath and the telling of ancient stories — we celebrate the opening of our hearts.”
The Fifth Direction began its journey in 2017 as a small group of men talking, sharing and meditating together in Melbourne, Australia.
Through a mythopoetic understanding, we now offer an opportunity for all genders to gather together, turn inward and embody our highest expression.
I met Asher, the founder, during my Wim Hof method master module in Australia. Asher was there for me during my first big emotional awakening in the ice bath. He simply came over to check on me, put his arm around me and asked: “Are you okay, brother?” We have been close friends ever since. I provide a weekly online breathwork class for our Aussie friends.
“Brain Changes Initiative (BCI) funds ground-breaking research to improve the standard of care for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) recovery. We also provide awareness, advocacy and support for Traumatic Brain Injury survivors through education, events and programs. With your help we hope to continue building a movement of brain ambassadors to spread the word that the brain reroutes, the brain heals and the brain changes!”
While leading my Yoga class in High Park I kept bumping into Dr. Matthew Galati and his crew, who have an info booth set up at the Bloor West/High Park gates every Sunday 9-11 am. I’ve always been a fan of neuroscience (inspired at a young age by reading Oliver Sack’s ‘The Man who mistook his wife for a hat’) and after hearing about their incredible journey and non-profit work I was eager to collaborate. We started providing breathwork and cool-down stretches for their weekly High Park Brain Gains Run for Neurogenesis.
And I started running for the first time in my life! Please visit their page, read all about Matthew’s inspiring healing journey, follow them on your socials and join us on Sundays in High Park. If you know somebody struggling with traumatic brain injury, send them their way!
“EarlyON Child and Family Centres offer free, high-quality programs for families and children from birth to 6 years old. You can learn and play with your child, meet people and get advice from early childhood professionals.”
(Nici) I started taking my daughter to the Early ON program in my neighbourhood when she was about 3 months old. I loved having something meaningful to do, meet other parents, exchange helpful advice, and sing and play together. I started offering our services to the Early ON program in the Junction.
Once a month I visit circle time to intriduce BIN and do a 15-min breathwork session for families and their babies. I remember this difficult time of adjusting to parenting life and dealing with the stress, fears and challenges that come with taking care of and giving ourselves completely to our kids. If you have kids, check out the many different centers and wonderful activities provided by this free service!
