A Little Bit OF GRACE
We never know how our small activities will affect others through the invisible fabric of our connectedness. In this exquisitely connected world, it's never a question of 'critical mass.' It's always about critical connections.
Spring's author of mention is Grace Lee Boggs- We know it isn't quite the same as book club but you can learn along with us or just enjoy a little bit of Grace here and there.

We've Spotted HELENA.
THAT's VAROUJ- ARTIST. ARCHITECT. FRIEND. HE WORKS WITH THE GARDEN GROUP.
"Merakos combines the spirit of social entrepreneurship, sports and strengths of community life by offering a unique range of innovative workshops open to everyone: neighbors, thinkers, entrepreneurs, artists, sportsmen. Selina and Rebecca are lovely, open minded and dynamic persons who create a real asset to the neighborhood."
-Daniela from Germany
"It has been lovely to see that the hard work, ideas and creativity from both Selina and Rebecca has come to fruition with the newly created space called Merakos, located in Riley Park. The opening party of Merakos truly showed a culmination of this team effort. Great successful event ladies! I am very excited for all the upcoming actives planned for the summer!"
-Helena from the UK
"The people are so welcoming and the yoga lessons taught are definitely on a high-professional level. Would everyone recommend going there! :)"
-Corrina from Germany
"This is very nice Selina, now do you and your friends want apple slices"
-Selina's Grandma (and then the studio Grandma)
"Merakos is a true eye-opener within the Main Street area! As a newcomer to Vancouver, the Fieldhouse allowed me to meet new people and participate in relaxing yoga afternoon sessions. The wide variety of activities available sets Merakos apart, as there is something for everyone to enjoy. 2 thumbs up!"
-Pascale from Arizona
"Fabulous! it takes a community to build a community... this city needs more space for family affairs and small events."
"Merakos Fieldhouse is a warm inviting environment full of friendly amazing people. Events are top notch; I look forward to many more visits."
-Colin from Hay River
"I first met the girls at Merakos when they let me borrow the giant jengo set they built for an event- the catch? Helping to repaint the jenga blocks, then I was back for their Christmas market and now- somehow even with an international move and a pandemic I immediately went back to volunteer again."
