“You start planting good seeds, good flowers, good plants and removing the ones that are useless…then you just keep nurturing them.”

Tarik El Assal left his life in Morocco behind to move to Canada two days before the pandemic hit. The self awareness practices he has developed through yoga, Islam, and voracious consumption of personal growth books have helped him stay resilient, positive, and growthful during this strange and difficult year.
