NATHAN ISBERG & AWAI RESTAURANT
Nathan Isberg is no stranger to the Toronto restaurant scene, and anything but conventional. His new plant-based project, awai restaurant, is on the TOP 10 HOTTEST RESTAURANTS IN TORONTO list. The word “awai” is a concept Isberg came across in a book on Shinto-Buddhist cooking that referenced ways to cook food without manipulating it too much, allowing its inherent flavours to shine. He will create a one-time-only tasting menu for Earth Day.
Brigid discovered Mindfulness 15 years ago, when she was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. This powerful practice transformed her life, and now serves as the foundation of her work as a speaker, coach and yogi. Brigid is a Certified Martha Beck Life Coach, Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher, and creator of the online course Mindfulness for Busy People. She is passionate about helping people reclaim their power and peace of mind.
Bareket Kezwer is a Toronto based visual artist, muralist and eternal optimist. Her work is motivated by a desire to spread joy, nurture present minded living, cultivate gratitude, and foster new social interactions. She works with bright colours and bold patterns to captivate people’s attention and fill them with delight.
Lisa Gervais is the Founder of Redwing Institute, an experiential learning organization. She is the creator of the award-winning Culture & Nature Discovery Walk, a three-hour learning journey down the Humber River Valley in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
