“Tell me, what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
Tara Emery

Tara has been working as a social worker in the medical system since 2009 in the field of mental health and addictions. With an intense passion and belief in humankind, she began at a grassroots level on the streets of Calgary working with the most vulnerable and marginalized. In 2013 while birthing her beautiful son, Tara suffered a traumatic and painful nerve injury. She sought out a path to recovery; moving to the Kootenays, and studying chronic pain management. She has become a passionate lifelong learner focusing on trauma since 2016, and in 2023 Tara became a candidate for her MSW.  

Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.

You do not have to walk on your knees For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.

You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers.

Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again.

Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting — over and over announcing your place in the family of things.

– Mary Oliver
