Upcoming Workshops

Enrollment in all workshops is limited. Contact Melissa at or (905) 521-0043 for more information or to register.

Qigong Workshop
Location: Regent Health Centre
Date: Sunday, December 10, 2017
Time: 1-5 pm
Cost: $60 / person

This workshop is open to people at all levels of training (including newbies!). Together we will explore qigong movement, sitting and standing meditation, and shamanic trance journey, in anticipation of the upcoming winter solstice. (This year's takes place on December 21st.)

Winter solstice marks the moment in the annual cycle when the night is longest, and the day is shortest. It marks the official start of winter, the season during which yin energies are at their peak. Winter is traditionally a time of low activity in nature, and yet, underneath the surface of things, all sorts of processes start to prepare for the return of spring. Winter is a time for quiet contemplation, and also a time during which transformation can occur seemingly without effort, or without conscious awareness that things are moving forward. At this workshop we'll talk about how to harmonize with the predominant yin energies to effect gentle, natural transformations for yourself, and your qigong practice.

Please let me know ahead of time if you would like to attend. Contact me at (905) 521-0043 or

Spiritual Development Workshop
Date: Sunday, December 24, 2017
Time: 2-4 pm
Cost: $10 suggested donation / person

Spiritual development workshops are for people who enjoy, or are curious about, the spiritual and esoteric aspects of Taoist practice, and who are also interested in working on themselves as spiritual seekers. While I personally don't plan to hand down spiritual truths or claim to know the answers, I have more than 25 years' experience working in Taoist and other spiritual frameworks, and am happy to help gently guide participants as they work to find answers for themselves.

Participants can expect to work with a variety of different techniques for connecting to Spirit, as well as time spent sharing individual experiences, as we work to bring fresh meaning and purpose to our life journeys.

You can read more about the philosophy behind the spiritual development workshop series here. This series will be run from my home. I need to know ahead of time if you plan to attend. Contact me at (905) 521-0043 or Even if you've attended in the past, I'd like to know if you plan to attend each workshop. Because these workshops represent a more advanced perspective on everything we do, I reserve the right to let you know if it would be inappropriate for you to attend.
