Learn the Healing Power of the Chakras
“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” …. Nikola Tesla
There are many different forms of energy healing. There are specific techniques which allow a healer to channel energy into a person seeking help. You too can channel this healing energy into your body to enhance your physical, emotional and mental health.
In this full day workshop we will explore the seven principal Chakras, the energy points within the body, as a tool for self-healing. You will learn how to use the energy of each chakra for specific ailments and discomforts, and an easy step by step technique for balancing your own energy.
This workshop is perfect for those who would like a tangible, “how to” tool for clearing and balancing their energy, and utilizing the power of universal healing energy to be more in charge of their own health and well-being.
Stop the Blame Game
“When an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside of you as fate”…..Carl Jung
Would you like to stop blaming and judging others when you know it’s something in you that needs attention? This is called “projection”, being just what it sounds like. An image reflected onto a screen, only in this case, the screen is another person.
That’s exactly how it works psychologically. There is an issue that has been pushed into the subconscious and it needs attention. That issue has energy and is constantly looking for release from its prison in the subconscious. So, it is projected outward to the external world and the issue is suddenly seen in someone else. This is also true for our positive traits that we cannot see or acknowledge. When we know this and work with this, it is an amazing tool for healing ourselves and our relationships.
In Stop the Blame Game workshop we will discuss “projection”, use exercises and examples of how to recognize projection, and you will have an opportunity to gain support, clarity and insight into an issue that you are experiencing.
This workshop is perfect for you if you are struggling with consistent judgment or blame, or simply want to learn about this powerful tool for self-healing and deeper self-understanding.
Introduction to archetypes
what are they are why do we care?
“Archetypes are systems of readiness for action, and at the same time images and emotions” … Carl Jung
The psychologist, Carl Jung, used the concept of archetype in his theory of the human psyche. For Jung, archetypes comprised psychological patterns derived from historical roles in life, such as the Mother, Child, Trickster, and Servant. Along with our individual personal unconscious, which is unique to each of us, Jung asserted, “there exists a second psychic system of a collective, universal, and impersonal nature that is identical in all individuals.” This collective unconscious, he believed, was inherited rather than developed, and was composed mainly of archetypes.
Using archetypes is another way of understanding our unconscious. By recognizing ourselves in a particular archetype and resonating with the behaviours of that archetype, we bring our unconscious to the light, increasing our self-awareness and opportunity for healing.
In this workshop we will explore the 12 common archetypes. Through questions, exercises and guided meditation, you will be able to identify with these archetypes gaining a broader perspective of your-self and those whom you share your world with. You will also learn how to use archetypes as a healing tool, and should you wish to explore it further, resources will be provided.
Manage Your Anger
“You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger” ….. Buddha
Do you find that your anger is out of control? Do you hear people saying to you that you have anger issues? If so, this workshop is for you!
Anger is a part of us, a part of life and yet we can feel so out of control in it. Anger, when well managed, can be a good thing – a sign that something is not working and needs changing. Or it can be the most unproductive, destructive emotion we experience. When we are in a fit of rage and out of control we can destroy things, destroy relationships, destroy our reputation, ultimately – destroy ourselves. Understanding anger in all its forms and intensities, from annoyance to irritation to rage, can make a big difference in our ability to take a step back and process this powerful and complicated emotion.
In this workshop you will discover how much control you really have. Why reactions vary so widely between people or even day to day for the same person, and the benefits and draw backs of expressing anger.
You will be guided in hypnotherapy to discover and understand the source of your anger so that you can then harness this powerful energy and learn tools and strategies that work for you.
beliefs, blocks & business
“All business proceeds on beliefs or judgements of probabilities, and not on certainties” . . . . William Reddington Hewlett
As entrepreneurs, our business is an expression of who we are – the ups and downs – the flow and the struggle. When we become stuck in business or in life, it is usually because of a belief that has taken hold of us in some way, not our knowledge or skill level.
If you are struggling in your business, or would like to perform better in your work environment, this workshop is specifically designed to breakthrough blocks so you continue to progress in building your business or your career.
Through discussion, sharing and mediation, you will identify an underlying belief that is blocking you. This is your first step to breaking through it. You will then be guided to discover and connect to another part of you – the part that is strong, willing and ready to assist you on the next leg of your journey to success.
manifest your dreams
“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humour, no sense of right or wrong and cannot tell the difference between reality and imagined thoughts. Therefore what we continually think about or believe, will eventually manifest in our lives”.
Everything you have or don’t have in your life you are 100% responsible for. The power to create your dreams is within you.
What prevents you from harnessing your inner power? Your beliefs. And where do they come from? The past. Based on your upbringing, your traumas, ultimately your experiences. And it is virtually impossible to change the beliefs that are unconscious, simply because they are unconscious. If you knew what they were you would do something different, right?
In this workshop you will learn how your conscious mind, your critical mind, and your subconscious mind work together. Through guided meditation you will identify an unconscious belief that is preventing you from manifesting your dreams. Once discovered, you will connect to another part of you – your inner guide. This inner guide is strong and resourceful, and will be your inner support for change and manifestation.
By identifying and connecting to your inner resources, you will leave this workshop feeling a sense of empowerment and increased confidence in your ability to manifest your goals in life.
Group Past Life Regression
Discover Your Past Life
“No matter how you arrive at the awareness and belief that you’ve lived before and will live again, the most lasting healing benefit will be the change in your attitude” . . . . Lianne Downe, Speed Your Evolution: Become the Star you were meant to be.
Gain ancient insight and deep healing in this Past Life Regression Group as past life memories and experiences bring forth understanding of your current life challenges.
In this group setting Karen will use hypnotherapy to gently guide you on a journey to the past where you will explore and discover a relevant past life. Whether you come with an intention or question that you want answered, or simply show up and let your higher self-guide you to the life from the past you need right now, you will take away information and healing that will benefit you in your life today.
“Affirmations are mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily” . . . . Tia Walker, The Inspired Caregiver
We’ve all heard of positive affirmations – a positive statement that declares something exists or is true. So why is it more often that not, they simply don’t work? The answer is this – there is a belief in your subconscious that directly contradicts what you are trying to manifest. For example, if you have an affirmation to attract love into your life, but underneath you don’t love yourself or know how to receive love, your affirmation will never work no matter how often your repeat it. Buried in your subconscious is an opposite belief. And your subconscious runs the show.
Therefore, in order to create a powerful and effective positive affirmation, it must be a true, believable statement. A statement that your subconscious can agree with.
In this workshop you will learn how to create a positive affirmation that your subconscious agrees with. A positive self-statement that, when spoken, evokes feelings of presence, truth and believability.
You will be guided in hypnotherapy to tap into your powerful subconscious in order to assist in the process, and to reinforce the truth of your positive statement.
connect to your spirit guides
“To increase your connection to your guide, you can consciously think of your guide or your guide’s name. You need not do more than this to bring your guide’s light and love to you” . . . . Spirit Guides Orin and DaBen, Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer
We are not alone. We have the ability to tap into support and guidance as we travel our earthly journey called life. This support and guidance not only comes from our higher self, but also from spirit guides, beings that are assigned to us before we are born to help nudge and guide us through life. They’re responsible for helping us fulfill our destiny and live our purpose, and our higher self helps select these guides.
Some guides will stay with you throughout your entire life, and others will pop in every now and again to help you with specific areas of your life or goals you are trying to achieve. When it’s time for your spirit guides to help you, they tune in to your energy and help direct you to fulfill your earthly mission.
In this workshop you will experience energy healing, guided meditation and hypnotherapy to help you connect with your guides and tune into the messages they have for you. You will learn how to identify the nudges and messages your guides are offering in your day to day life.

These workshops were not only enlightening but truly beneficial. Prior to these I had not heard of Shadow Work before. I wasn’t aware of my subconscious thoughts and what kept holding me back from achieving the things in life I desired. The first workshop helped me understand what it was that kept holding me back and the second workshop helped me truly ground and become more relaxed. My wife is always commenting on how I have changed. I believe your workshops helped give me the push I needed to change paths in my life. . . John
