Initially, UMatter was a response to the issue of suicide in our local community in Southwestern Ontario. The site has grown in reach since then, but its primary aim and purpose remain the same: to provide tools for self-empowerment.
There are four different sections to the site, listed below. Peruse them in whatever order you find is relevant to you. There is no right or wrong way to read what’s here.
Lessons: This section provides tools and suggestions to help you work on your mental health and well-being.
Inspirational stories: At UMatter, we recognize those who have been inspirations in our community. This section tells some of their stories.
Articles: This section features a selection of articles that you may find informative and interesting as you travel your own path.
Awakening Podcast Series: This is a new section of UMatter, added on during 2018. The Awakening Series is a fifteen-part interview between host Seamus Evely and the author and creator of UMatter, Ned Burwell. After Ned published his first book, Be Love, Seamus approached Ned about doing an interview about it. The interview became more of a conversation, which then turned into a fifteen-part series.
Meditation Series: If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to meditate, or simply want to deepen your current practice, this free five-part series will guide you.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” goes the old saying. Step one is simply deciding to begin your personal journey of self-empowerment, of learning a deeper love for yourself and others. UMatter will guide you through the next steps on that lifelong path. Our mission is to give you some of the tools you’ll need to support you as you continue to make positive changes towards personal growth.
Ned’s books are now available through Amazon.
The Umatter motto:
“Be Love. Be loving to the world. Be loving to others. Most importantly, be loving to yourself.”
