Awareness Through Movement
The second in the series of summer workshops, called The Pleasure of Challenge, is inspired by the workshop I, Michaela, attended recently at the Crestone Zen Meditation Centre in the mountains of Colorado. What a pleasure it was to be taught once again by my very first Feldenkrais teacher and friend, Guenther, from Munich, Germany.

Nourishment for the Body, Mind, and Soul
Mindful Living is like walking a labyrinth. It takes great courage to stand in a virtual doorway with an intention to walk round and round exploring deeply what is at the core of our being.
Rather than walking the classical labyrinth celtic-like path, we will experience gentle movement, meditation (sometimes guided and other times silent), provocative inquiry, reflective prompted journaling &/or drawing, and sharing in a sacred circle with tea. Since the group is an intimate size … we meet at Maureen’s Home Space.
Fridays 7:00 – 9:00pm
Aug 25, Sept 29, Oct 27, Nov 24
$30.00 (income adjustments available)

Next RETREAT ~ Winter 2018
Passport to Possibility
Visualizing a life of that comes from the heart starts with getting very quiet, asking poignant questions, and listening deeply. It is honouring and celebrating the unique way in which we intend to deliver our gifts, talents, and skills in this world.
A weekend retreat is an opportunity to awaken inner spirit, nurture heart’s longing, spend time in nature, meet new friends, and go home with a whole new perspective on life.
Powerful personal healing work will come from moving the body, mind & spirit through: gentle & restorative yoga with essential oils, a soulful 5-element dance, meditation (guided & silent), reflective journaling, a sacred traditional drumming circle, and painting as a spiritual practice.
Picture this … nutritious and delicious gourmet meals, comfortable & cozy accommodation, plenty of time for rest and relaxation &/or a more active and vigorous hike among the spectacular peak season-fall colours.
4-day retreat in the Laurentians (Thursday – Sunday)
TBC for Winter 2018
