Poetry with Purpose – Living Through Earthquakes

Not sure where Deep Bay got its name but it might have been from the 1946 earthquake that caused the bottom of Deep Bay to sink up to 84 feet in places. The quake struck Vancouver Island with a magnitude of 7.3 on the Richter Scale, the strongest quake ever recorded on land in Canada. The main shock epicenter occurred in the Forbidden Plateau area northwest of Courtenay. This was one of the most damaging earthquakes in the history of British Columbia, but damage was restricted mainly to property because the area was sparsely populated at that time. The Forbidden Plateau Quake was the last big quake on the island.

Nōmina Wellness is breaking the Mental Health Mold with Engagement and Expertise

The Comox Valley has changed in many ways. Our local population has significantly grown in size, we're grateful that our current local government officials continue to bridge old gaps (mind the Puntledge pun), and the need for adapting our housing initiatives is driven home by almost unbelievable stories of professionals sharing basement suites with NIC students while looking for homes. And they are the fortunate ones, as too many Comox Valley residents remain homeless while incredibly engaged and qualified people work full tilt full time to find solutions to our social justice dilemmas. It is our pleasure here at Tidechange.ca to introduce you to Nomina Wellness, the new mental health facility with an inclusive, enganged multi-tiered approach to integrating those on the fringes back into the society they long to be part of.

Empower Yourself

I would like to say that as a transformational coach I meet many people who feel lost and are overwhelmed by the things that aren’t working in their lives. My advice to them is the same as Anita’s: love and appreciate yourself unreservedly. Count your gifts and your blessings. It may be hard at first but if you persist, you may see positive changes in your health and your environment.
