Adnan Khan on The Rickshaw Circus

March 3, 2014

  Canadian journalist, and friend, Adnan Khan, has been covering South Asia and Middle East for over a decade. When not traipsing around Turkey, his home turf, the Maclean’s correspondent can usually be found in Pakistan or Afghanistan working on his next feature story. In 2012, Khan took a much needed break from his reporting duties and […]


Circumskiing Mount Logan

September 7, 2013

  Last spring I spent a week with a group of mountaineers at a remote glacier camp in Yukon’s St. Elias Range near the base of Mount Logan, Canada’s highest peak. Sometimes referred to as “Canada’s Himalayas”, the St. Elias Mountains (the highest in North America) sit within the largest glaciated region outside of Greenland and […]


Griffin and Tyrrell on Meaning, Mysticism and Mental Health

January 22, 2013

On a recent trip to England I had the opportunity to meet with psychologists Joe Griffin and Ivan Tyrrell – the originators of the Human Givens school of psychotherapy. At the core of their approach is the idea that human beings, like all organic life, come into this world with a set of needs. If […]


Hallak on ‘Beit Beirut’

One of the few remaining structures bearing the scars of Lebanon’s fifteen year civil-war (1975-1990) is Beirut’s Barakat Building.

Liddle on Kluane National Park

BRENT LIDDLE, a wilderness guide from Haines Junction, Yukon has spent over three decades exploring one of the most remote corners of North America. Between 1975 and 2002 he served as an interpretive guide at Kluane National Park: a 22,000 square kilometer wilderness area in the Yukon straddling the southernmost limit of the Arctic. Kluane […]


Bello on Climate Change

June 23, 2012

Nearly all of our information on climate change tends to come by way of the mainstream media. Because of news filtering it’s hard to find any meaningful coverage on this topic beyond what appears fleetingly in the headlines. And we rarely, if ever, get a chance to meet the scientists and hear directly from them […]


Nahas on Alternative Medicine

June 5, 2012

I recently caught up with my old friend, Richard Nahas, an M.D. practicing alternative and integrative medicine in Ottawa. Since embarking on his career in 1994 Richard has accrued a panoply of fascinating work-related experiences and travels: from challenging tenures treating the downtrodden in Cairo and Johannesburg, to being a frontline physician during the SARS […]
