Giving it All
Limited Capacity seats available

If fear is causing you to constrict your heart and pull away from life, if trusting your path is a constant struggle, if you want to flow with enthusiasm, compassion and abundance, this workshop is for you. 

Learn through cultivation of implicit trust, gratitude, and kindness how to become a conduit for spirit on earth, letting universal love flow through you to embue your work, your relationships and your life. Exercises will help you see when you are pulling away from life and when you are engaging your soul in all you do!

You will learn:

  • How to tap into your naturally peaceful state of higher consciousness to overcome fear through compassion.
  • How to harness the four keys to abundant living: intention, surrender, gratitude, and trust.
  • How to get out of your head and move into body-based intuition for guidance and reassurance.
  • To express the physical form as a conduit for bringing the divine spirit onto the earth plane.

This is a step-by-step process for extricating yourself from the mundane, fear-based operation of the ego consciousness to discovering how you were really meant to experience this life - as divine spirit taking human form for the sole purpose of being love on earth.

Attunement Circle
Limited Capacity seats available

Attunement allows deeper access to the truth of yourself  and has potential to increase your capacity to express love.

The practice of Attunement is a non touch modality which uses the cervical region at the neck, and the endocrine system, as the starting points for balance of the energy field. Each of the seven endocrine glands,starting with the pineal, represents a quality of life such as love, purification, or blessing. As the balance is established in these glands, the flow of life is enhanced and the spirits magnified in our  expression.

The circle begins with a brief introductory time. Each circle has a small grouping of no more than twelve people so that each person present has opportunity to experience an Attunement.

Most pain in our body is a result of poor alignment which causes undue stress, wear and tear on muscles and joints.

Travelling Beyond Bliss
Limited Capacity seats available

Meditation can bring you great joy - and just as intense frustration when you first attempt to still your mind!
I first became curious about meditation at the tender age of 13, when I began my practice. Over the decades, I've experimented with various forms of meditation, including Zen, Tibetan, Vipassana - as well as an Ojibway sweat lodge. During the past 40 years of practice, I've discovered that meditation isn't solely about maintaining a peaceful state of mind or attaining bliss. In fact, actively pursuing those experiences to the exclusion of other states is likely to engender a battle of wits between your intent and your busy monkey mind.
 
Bliss, peace, and stillness of mind is possible when we stop trying to control our experience. We will explore ways to connect with our naturally observant underlying state of awareness, which is the foundation of consciousness. We will discover what keeps us from resting in that state, and how we can reliably arrive there time and time again. Please join me for this journey beyond bliss to ever deeper levels of awareness.

Mindful Self-Compassion
Limited Capacity seats available

Mindful self-compassion teaches core principles and practices that enable participants to respond to difficult moments in their lives with kindness, care, and understanding. The three key components of self-compassion are self-kindness, common humanity, and mindfulness. Kindness opens our hearts to suffering, so we can care for ourselves. Common humanity opens us to our essential interrelatedness, so that we know we aren’t alone. Mindfulness opens us to the present moment, so we can accept our experience with greater ease. Together they comprise warm-hearted, connected presence. Studies show mindful self-compassion can enhance emotional well-being, increase happiness, and reduce anxiety and depression.

Koaching U2 Keto
Limited Capacity seats available

Learn about the ketogenic diet, ketosis, ketone bodies and how it will benefit you long term! 

The ketogenic diet is the most sustainable yet least looked upon in North America. Ketosis was used as a primary fuel source thousands of years ago and is still the most sustainable way of proper eating but there's unfortunately a large lack of nutritional knowledge these days, with food adverstisements telling us what to fill our bodies with and most foods containing ingredients such as sugar and ingredients which are unpronounceable! There's still much outdated information about diet and exercise, including Canada's food guide to "healthy eating". You will learn what foods to eat that will promote greater mental clarity, focus, awareness,  better digestion and fat loss.

Cultivating Stillness
Limited Capacity seats available

Learning, and then practicing the art of stillness, in which we cultivate tranquil states of mind and body, has the potential to transform not only our minds but our lives. Scientific studies are revealing that meditation can help us to respond to the stresses of life with greater equanimity and presence, as well as reduce depression, anxiety and worry. Our brains are now known to be mutable throughout the lifespan, and the practice of stillness can influence how the brain changes, in the direction of greater mental stability and toward an increased sense of well-being.

The Secret of Synchronicities
Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever experienced an event that seemed like a coincidental experience with no casual relationship yet seemed to be meaningfully related? Have you had experiences that imply there is a mysterious force at play binding and connecting all beings? These events are known as synchronicities, a concept coined by the Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung. Synchronicities reveal the profound deep interconnections between the mind and body; between one person and another; or between one person and the natural surroundings.

Synchronous events are often fun, energizing, illuminating and almost always mysterious. They often create a magical ease where what you need appears before you even know you need it. Tapping into the secrets of synchronicities and learning to align and recognize these events when they occur can be life changing!

Join Stephanie Banks as she delves into the world of magical occurrences and shares her ideas of how to sync your soul with the forces of the universe that offer potentials beyond the grasp of the logical mind.
