Kathrin Winkler

Artist Facilitator

I am actively pursuing personal development of an intersectional gender lens and collective involvement that envisions spaces for radical equality, working toward an inhabitable world for all. I am a teacher, peace activist, artist, mother and grandmother. Post retirement included travels, teaching and volunteering with Ekta Parishad (Gandhian Land Rights social movement) and the Canadian Teachers’ Federation.

Principles of non-killing, non-violence and non-harm fuel my interest in being a feminist voice in a broken system. I am a Nova Scotia VOW member; a Nova Scotia Zen sangha member and I love swimming in the ocean. In a post-COVID world, I hope to continue teaching part time with the Immigration Service of Nova Scotia. Bios aren’t for book recommendations, but I am grateful for Susan Murphy’s “Minding the Earth, Mending the World...Zen and the Art of Planetary Crisis”, and have adopted the essence of the wisdom that “Everything matters.”
