Bhakti Connection

An Evening of Kirtan and Community

Join Loren as he welcomes Bhatki Connectionan Ottawa-based kirtan group, for the first time to 209 Hannah Street. 

Kirtan is a beautiful way to connect and move us beyond the stuff of our mind. It can serve as a catalyst to a spiritual connection, and indeed as a tool for spiritual unfoldment. Chanting or singing is used in essentially all spirirtual traditions because of its power to transport us.

Why We Need Pleasure to Heal and Find Wholeness Workshop

A Day Workshop for Professionals

Therapists and counsellors often think of supporting our clients to use positive resources as the 101 of therapy. It is but it goes much deeper than that. Using positive resources is just pleasure by another, perhaps more clinical, name.

How do we support our clients who have had losses, trauma, and years of barely coping, to open to the goodness of life?

This goodness that they need to truly heal, and see their lives and their story in a whole new way!

Unlock Pleasure Workshop

What comes to mind when you think about pleasure? 

We all have a relationship with pleasure that may work for you or not.

If you want to up your pleasure quotient and understand what blocks you from making pleasure more of a priority, this day workshop will set you started on the road to embracing all the good things we know pleasure can mean. 

The basic concepts of Unlock Pleasure, which I call the keys and doorways to pleasure, will be covered and through experiential activities you will gain a more solid footing in the land of pleasure. 

The Art of Self Connection Series

October 15 & 16, November 5 & 6

The Art of Self Connection

Inspired by Brene Brown

"Connection, along with love and belonging is why we're here, and it is what gives purpose and meaning to our lives." Brene Brown

Desire Map with Michelle Turpin

November 13 & 14

How do you want to feel in all parts of your life?

Successful goal setting really is all about desire and how we want to feel. Not about what we think we need to do.

These 2 days will focus on gaining clarity about our core desired feelings (CDFs), using these CDFs to define and refine how we will feel in every part of our life, and how we bring these core desired feelings into our every-day life.

Connect Sessions

Fridays from 7 - 8:45pm

Creating Connection with Authentic Relating Games

"Connection is the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship." Brene Brown

Koshas - the 5 layers of Being

This module is available to students seeking certification with Roxanne Joly at the 300-hour level.  It is also available to others for continuing education credits or personal interest. 

About this training:

Roxanne Joly will lead you through this exploration of the Koshas.

The Koshas are a map to help is understand ourselves and our lives. They shed light on the fullest understanding of who we are and the unseen forces that shape our lives.

Kosha means “sheath” or “layer”, once we open one layer, there is another just beyond. The goal is to work through the “Sheaths” as they prevent us from seeing our true Self.

Intention bracelet

Do you ever hear yourself thinking?

Are those thoughts positive and supportive or are you your own worst critic?

Many of us think negatively. Thoughts like:

"I can't do that."

"I don't have time."

"I'm so stupid."

"I never have enough money."
