Joseph Brant Festival on August 3 – Honouring Burlington’s Native Indian Foundation

Recently (this summer) we had a Youth Sahaja Yoga Seminar in Canajoharie and I will gladly share some photographs from that  place  - our Abi had represented Burlington youth there and she made few gorgeous photos -  so you can feel and "judge"…
