We welcome all speeds and abilities, and no one will be dropped on our group runs! Come explore our beautiful backyard with Tantalus Wellspring in July.

When: Wednesdays in July (July 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th) from 6PM-7PM. We will also have an online orientation session over Zoom on Tuesday July 6th at 6PM so you can drop in and ask any questions about the upcoming clinic.

Happy New Year!

If this past year has left you feeling too overwhelmed, you crave to release the past and step forward into 2021 with JOY, join us for this unique workshop.

You will be led through a session of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping to release limiting beliefs and step into positive affirmations. EFT helps to relax the sympathetic nervous system and break down old beliefs in the subconscious mind. We will journal about 2020 and bring clarity about what you want to manifest in 2021.

Next, you’ll be guided through a yoga Nidra practice, to take these new intentions deep into your inner core. Yoga Nidra is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions.

What you’ll need for this Zoom session:

* a comfortable seat and somewhere to stretch out for the Nidra

* a journal and pen

* a mug of something delicious to drink

* a blanket to stay cozy for the Nidra

* an open mind and heart

The session will be recorded and emailed to you afterwards.

Suggested donation: $25-35

Walking The Medicine Wheel With Heather Royal – April 16 2018

Date: April 18, 2018
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Squamish Public Library

WALKING THE MEDICINE WHEEL 

Date: April 16, 2018

Time: 5-8pm

Location: Squamish Public Library

Presented by Heather Royal

Join the circle!  We invite you to experience an introduction of how the Medicine Wheel, an ancient tool, is used to create sacred space, bring in vision and manifest change.

Engage in building a medicine wheel in community and learn how to incorporate these teachings to create your own personal medicine wheel.

In this workshop you will gain insight into the sacred teachings of Earth Based Wisdom and ways to assist your own path towards physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance and enlightenment.

The teachings of the medicine wheel offers a map to open us up to self awareness; pointing like a compass towards both our strengths and to what needs healing/transforming. We are the authors of our life. As we strengthen our relationship to ourselves, to nature and to others we learn to take responsibility for our lives and live in a co-creative, harmonious and authentic relationship with all beings.

N.B. Though there may be therapeutic benefits, this workshop is not intended as a substitute for therapy conducted by a qualified mental health professional.
