About A Calm Place

Impostor Syndrome is a collection of chewed and mangled thoughts based on reflections, experience, and personal perspectives I wish others to read, think about, share, confirm, add to, and challenge.

Rhapsodic Stillness is a collection of pictures taken over the years and reflecting with deafening silence the stunning world we live in.


About me

Eric Lavigne, courtesy of Philippe Gendrault

I am a student, day and night. By day, I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Higher Education program at OISE, University of Toronto. By night, I study Aikido and Iaido with Sensei Robert Zimmermann at Toronto Aikikai

I have worked six years as an administrator in Montreal colleges, focusing on program development and support. Before that, I have taught college physics for about twelve years.

I started Aikido in 2000, and Iaido in 2001, with Sensei Claude Berthiaume at Aikido de la montagne in Montreal.

When “the right time” comes around, I take out my camera and moonlight as a wannabe photographer who gets a few good shot every once in a while and feels proud enough to show them off.
