  Pathway to Peace

Many of us have experienced loss in our lives.  Often when these losses happen we have no way to properly mourn the loss or integrate the change in our lives.  Join us for a weekend where we explore and heal past hurts.  It is in the healing of the past that we find the pathway to peace, love and joy in our lives. 


  Keys to Effective Facilitations

Are you a Counselor or Workshop Facilitator who would like to up your game?  Are you a Teacher who believes teaching is about facilitating learning; if so, do you want to develop your skill set in that direction?  Are you a Principal who would like to support your Teachers in learning new ways to facilitate learning?  Do you have something that you are passionate about, but you don’t know how to present it from the front of the room?  If you said yes to any of these questions, this course is for you. 

Spend a weekend with us and learn to hone your skill set.  We begin by developing an understanding of the theory involved in facilitating a group of individuals through the learning process, then we put that theory to work to discover effective tools, techniques and models that will help you be the best that you can be at the front of any room.

  ABC’s of Happiness

In one of the most prosperous of nations, how is it that happiness eludes the majority of us?  The ABC’s of happiness remind us that the key to happiness in life is simple when we allow it to be, of course that does not mean that it is easy.  During this day we will learn the ABC’s of Happiness, we will identify what gives meaning to our life and cover key strategies for making time for what matters most.               


  Catch the Love

Love…the most elusive of emotions yet the most concrete of virtues. At the core of love is compassion and acceptance. Yet somehow, in relationship, love can become a mine-field of unmet expectations, assumed roles, outdated beliefs, and hurt feelings. We find ourselves reverting to old habits and behaviours that do not honour ourselves or our partner. Before we know it a thriving relationship becomes stagnate under the weight of these habits.

It’s time to BREAK OUR BAD HABITS so that we may begin to truly CATCH THE LOVE that is ours the minute we choose to put on the catcher’s mitt. Whether you are currently in a relationship, looking for that special someone or getting over a broken relationship, this day is designed to walk you through a process of self-discovery and awakening that will open your heart to embrace the love available to you RIGHT NOW! 


   Compassionate Care for End of Life

In a death-phobic society it is vital that we learn how to discuss the issues that come up at end of life.  The dying process is a sacred and beautiful living process.  We all long to have a good life; however we give precious little thought to how we might have a good death.  As with all things in life, we can choose to approach the end of life from a place of fear or from a place of love.   This one-day workshop invites you to allow compassion to be your guide and transform your anxiety to a place of peace regarding the topic of death.
