Death is the cyclic regeneration of the infinite expansion of the universe, the fabulous transmutation of divine gross energy towards a subtler vibration or lighter form of consciousness
I was meditating that afternoon. My mama knew not to interrupt me when I was meditating because meditating requires your full and focused attention. I had been meditating two hours a day for two months before my mother passed away. Proudly, it had been the longest sustained meditation practice I had ever done. Sixty days of two hours of daily meditation, that's something to be proud of! I had also been practising various forms of yoga, kundalini, hatha and vinyasa yoga, for three hours a day since I returned from China in 2016. Practising yoga makes me feel like a fairy. In 2015, I was in China for close to six months doing research and working on the production of my film with the current working title ”Dragon Tears.” In November 2015, I travelled from Shanghai to Paris, and back to China again afterwards, to interview world renown environmental leader Dr. Vandana Shiva during COP 21. During my time in China, I was mainly based in Shanghai, but I had the chance to travel to Beijing for the first time! That was really great! I love Beijing! Especially Beijing's old city and ancient hutongs, some of which have been transformed into contemporary art galleries. The city of Beijing is fabulous; it's a wild scene! Beijing is definitely one of my most favourite cities in the world. And if it wasn't so polluted, I would probably be living there right now, at least for a few years, to get my Chinese language skills perfectly fluent indeed. I want to go back to China. I hope to have the opportunity to visit Beijing again. This time however, I will be travelling to China by boat for the first time ever, since I will not be taking the plane anymore for environmental reasons as was advised by Swedish youth leader Greta Thunberg during her recent speech in front of the United Nation! Greta Thunberg has been nominated for a Nobel peace prize! She deserves it! I hope to interview her for my film in the next two years! I am preparing my application for Les Films de L'Autre, which is a film production company based in Montreal that supports independent French speaking cinema, to direct and produce my film independently. In February 2016, I was back in Vancouver to finish writing my thesis for the M.A.A.PP.S. degree, which is an acronym for Master in Arts in Asia Pacific Policy Studies at the University of British Columbia. During the last year and a half of my degree, I was researching, reading, writing my thesis, and practising yoga on a daily basis. I was also vaporizing a lot of fabulous BC bud. The province of Quebec and the city of Montreal is lagging far behind British Columbia and the city of Vancouver when it comes to Canadian cannabis culture. My M.A.A.PP.S. Thesis, which is the core research for my film, is entitled: “ Dragon Tears: a critical analysis of the political ecology of planetary survival. I got 89%, it was one of the best of my program. During this period of my life, I was literally doing nothing else. There is a kind of trance that emerges from the process of intense focus, this is also when neuroplasticity occurs. Neuroplasticity is the extraordinary ability that your brain has to restructure itself. Your brain has the ability to make new synoptic connections altering it's own architecture. Through the process of meditation you are actually repairing your grey matter, which is why you feel so high afterwards. This is also what happens of course during the learning process. The forming of new synapses produces a kind of high that makes you want to keep learning. When I was writing my thesis, I was listening to a soundtrack called Gamma-burts brain catalyst for motivation, energy and intense focus. I am listening to it now. After listening to nothing else for over a year and a half, when I finished writing my thesis I actually found that listening to music was too intense. I could not listen to it, it was not comfortable. Music would irritate me. I have to say that it was indeed a strange experience. I love music. It was a strange thing to experience. It was like coming out of a shell... I do believe that my spiritual practice, the strict veganism, the daily devotional yoga, the exploration of meditation, strengthened forms of my consciousness by expanding, grounding and healing my energetic sphere/my aura, ready to heal my deep trauma just in time for my dear mother's passing through the veil of illusion.
My inter-disciplinary artwork, experimental films, and scholarly reflections emanate from a deep curiosity with the Cosmos, the entheogenic exploration of the cosmic multiverse and it's cosmological mystery, a fascination with the realm of mythos, the alchemistic nature of spirit, as well as from a responsive attention/intention towards Mother Earth. In this rich body of work I explore the political ecology of the planetary crisis, the enigma of consciousness, as well as metaphysical secrets of the universe. This nature spirit/elemental interdisciplinary art and research emerges from fostering the intellect, ancient traditions, knowledge, imagination, healing and a wild sense of freedom. The premise of this heuristic body of work is that the current planetary crisis is a crisis in human consciousness. As an environmental advocate and consciousness activist, my inter-disciplinary work intends to participate in the creative design of an ecological planetary culture. This is the creative process and human right of reclaiming the ethical flowering of our contemporary culture. This research in mindfulness intends to participate in the architectural sensible design and discerning creative model of the emerging post-growth ecological culture for a sustainable and thriving planetary future. My heart felt intention is to shed light on the sacred intricate ways in which we potentiate the power of our consciousness. This heuristic body of work is performed as a prayer for our group soul/humanity, as to raise the power of our hearts and open our minds, by cultivating graceful courage through the development of spiritual technologies to address life's complexities and model our individual awareness to our ultimate transcendental connection to Source. May we see clearly our interconnection to Mother Earth and Source. We/You are the/a Rainbow Warrior/s. If we consider that the world is indeed participatory, we manifest/dream this world into existence. Every thought, every gesture is meaningful. Indeed, dear friends... a colourful abundant future is ours to create! Let's do it!
Please consider making a kind and generous contribution!
With kind gratitude, Bérangère
I am mourning my mother deeply. I am mourning my mama with all my heart! I humbly offer my life, my efforts, my creativity and my LOVE as a sacred prayer to the Fierce Goddess of Spirituality, and to my recently deceits one and only mama. My deceits mama is my personal Angel Spirit now. She has kind superpowers and lives in my heart. May I always honour my mother's spirit with grace and dignity. May I exude health, strength and joy! May I continue to cultivate wisdom, balance and clarity to keep making her proud. May all my actions, words, and thoughts contribute to the spiritual awakening of humanity, inspire creativity, enlightenment, abundance, health, wealth (non-materialistic), peace, joy and happiness.

HONOURING YOUR BOUNDARIES IS AN IMPORTANT
BÉRANGÈRE MAÏA NATASHA PARIZEAU
My artwork, experimental films, and scholarly reflections emerge from a deep curiosity and fascination with the boundlessness of the human spirit, the limitlessness of the cosmic universe, the mythological, the spiritual, the exploration of my EARTH LIGHT body which emanates from infinity (this is the realm of the MYSTERY, the wildest imagination), as well as a real concern for our beautiful planet MOTHER EARTH. The premise of this heuristic body of work is that the current planetary crises are crises in human consciousness, crises of the humanity group soul/spirit. As an environmental advocate and consciousness activist, my work intends to intentionally participate in redesigning culture, the intentional participation in designing a post-growth ecological culture (this is the creative process of redesigning culture) for an ecologically sustainable and spiritually thriving planetary future. My intention is to shed light on the sacred multidimensional ways in which we potentiate the power of our consciousness. This body of work is a prayer to humanity to align our mind and hearts, to raise the power of our hearts, to develop methods and technologies to go inward towards the complexities and awareness of our individual connection to Source We are the Rainbow Warriors. If the world is indeed participatory, we manifest/dream this world into existence. Indeed, dear friends... a colourful future is ours to create!
