Employee Spotlight: Muriel Therrien

February 19 2021

The first thing anyone notices when they meet our Accountant, Muriel Therrien, is her contagious smile. Muriel isn’t a ray of sunshine, she’s the whole sun.  A conversation with her is sure to leave your cheeks sore from grinning and laughing.

As our Accountant, Muriel is responsible for accounts payable, accounts receivable, maintaining invoice files, writing cheques, doing payroll entries and GST remittances, as well as preparing monthly financial statements and monthly bank reconciliations. In an attempt to preserve the environment, Muriel is also transforming us into a paperless office. “In accounting there’s a lot of paper and change is not always easy,” says Muriel. “But I think it’s important that we do our part to protect the environment, and going paperless looks like a good place to start. We just upgraded our software to reduce our use of paper and there’s more change to come.”

Muriel has a few hidden talents. She plays the piano, the accordion and the guitar. “I can spend hours playing,” says Muriel. On top of that, she used to practice archery. In fact, she became a national judge for archery. She judged the senior Olympic trials, the Canada Winter Games, and the Commonwealth Games trials. “Being a judge was an amazing experience,” says Muriel. “I learned a lot, I travelled a lot. It was amazing.”

We all put up barriers to protect our heart at times. This is a normal response to suffering. A practice like Mindful Self-Compassion allows us to slowly engage those barriers, to lower them and reveal a new way of being with the hurts of our past. We can make new space for love in ourselves and for others when we open the heart with care, attention and courage.

🌸Join our weekly guided meditation circle on Zoom.🌸
Date: every Tuesday
Time: from 12:05pm to 12:25pm (CST).
How to join: No registration or payment are required. Just click the Zoom link and we'll be glad to see you. us02web.zoom.us/j/5824298161

Nous érigeons tous des barrières pour protéger notre cœur à certains moments. Il s'agit d'une réaction normale à la souffrance. Une pratique telle que la compassion envers soi nous permet d'abaisser ces barrières lentement et de révéler une nouvelle façon d'être avec les blessures de notre passé. Nous pouvons créer un nouvel espace pour l'amour en nous et pour les autres lorsque nous ouvrons notre cœur avec soin, attention et courage.

Rejoignez notre cercle de méditation guidée hebdomadaire sur Zoom.🌸 C'est gratuit, aucune inscription n'est nécessaire, nous nous réunissons tous les mardis de 12h05 à 12h25 (HNC). Cliquez sur le lien Zoom pour participer ! us02web.zoom.us/j/5824298161
