Women Empowering Women: A Day of Self-Care

Sunday March 8th, 2020
Port Perry, Ontario

Join us as we celebrate International Women’s Day, March 8, 2020. A day to pamper our body, mind and spirit as we experience tools and techniques to enhance our day to day life.  We recognize that change begins within, and as we nurture ourselves we generate inspiration and energy to nurture those around us.  As we celebrate International Women’s Day together in this women led, women inspired event, we hope to relax our bodies with wellness, fill our hearts with love, move our minds into peace and more importantly come together in laughter and friendship. This one day retreat is a perfect way to invest in yourself!

A sentence I never thought I would say.

Upon emerging from my emotional shut down recently (collective stress is hard, transitions are hard, fast adjustments and reactions are hard).  However,  I am beginning to think straight again.  I am taking things day by day, just...

Recently, someone asked me if I was living my best life.  In pop culture Oprah coined the phrase, but actually there are ancient texts like the Bagavad Gita that really dive into this idea.  In the Gita, it speaks of one's Dharma or life purpose. Upon googling Dharma,...

Ya, I have no idea, kinda.

Musings with some proper sentences and some not.  I am struggling with my brain today. It feels all dis-organized and tired. So I am writing and napping and not paying much attention to small details…

I live with the fear of reoccurrence everyd...

Happy Summer to you and yours!

I know, it feels like forever since we have connected. Am I right?  At least it feels like it to me.  For me, time feels like it is flying.

I hope you are getting through your days with ease and joy!

Since I graduated Yoga Teacher Train...

Last week was a big week for me.  I had my Mammo and Ultrasound on Wednesday and my Zometa Infusion on Friday. It was a balance of emotions, to say the least.  While in the ultrasound, the tech checked in with the Dr. and thankfully they are not worried about any "spot...

In mid June 2018, I put on a brave face and actually booked a photoshoot! It was exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. Here is what I learned!

1. who the hell is that? - I guess I quickly realized how few mirrors I have in the house. I don't often really LOOK a...

*warning* this one may be hard to read for some of you

I debated as to whether I should even write these words down.  My hubby says I am really good at putting on a brave face.  I usually only fall apart with him. Last week was a really hard week.  I got through it, and...

It was early August 2017, I was several weeks out of chemo and starting to feel so good (comparatively, of course). My sister, Lindsay had signed up months before for a "dream yoga trip".  She had asked me a few times if I could join her, and I always had to say it wil...

I am going to be completely honest with you.  I am having trouble accepting my new shape. Body image has completely consumed me since this surgery and I don’t really know what to do with it.  Everytime I get dressed, shower, shop for clothes or see an add on tv, I am d...

As the New Year approaches, I have been thinking over this last year.  I went through my journal from last winter up until now and I am a bit swept away by all that has happened.   No, seriously, I wrote down so many dreams for my future, some very specific, some a bit...
