The Ways of Gratitude

January 1, 2015

By Mario De Negri, Fitness Coordinator for Athletics and Recreation Services


I’d like to take a few blogs and talk about ways to achieve gratitude. If you were at the “Say YES to Everything” talk we spoke briefly about how this applies to the work of acceptance. Gratitude is a very selfless state. Different actions can be ways to gratitude but we are ultimately looking to be living the state. When we exercise these actions they strengthen us to see things that we might not be seeing given we’ve choose to block them or not be aware of them. These actions when practiced on a regular basis start to become the new “normal” and within this state we see things the way they are and that becomes more frequent.   Read More →

The men’s team went a perfect 6-0 in round robin, defeating the St.Boniface Rouges, Saskatoon Amaruks, and Great Plains Sundogs two sets a piece. They then rolled through the playoff round defeating the Moose Jaw Panthers (25-21,25-15) the ACC Cougars (25-17,16) in the semis and the CMU Blazers (25-21,25-23) in the Championship Final. The Rebels Kevin Bommersbach was named Tournament MVP.

The women’s team did not fare as well, finishing their round robin in 4th place after losing to Prince Albert (17-25,25-21,15-7) ACC (24-26,13-25) and beating the Prairie Pilots (20-25, 25-22,18-16) and the Great Plains Sundogs (25-14,25-13).
