Workshop Topics Include:
Grieving a loss
Please join us quarterly at Solace Cottage HeartStone Labyrinth, Qualicum Beach, B.C. Canada, for Solstice and Equinox Labyrinth Walks where we celebrate the change of seasons and acknowledge and honour the changes in our lives. See calendar for details.
Unlike a maze that has many dead ends and can cause confusion and fear; Walking a labyrinth's single winding pathway offers an opportunity to connect with self, others, nature and/or higher power, simply by putting one foot in front of the other.
Significant long-term health benefits can be experienced with regular walking meditation. These include eliciting the "relaxation response", which reduces blood pressure, decreases heart rate, & muscle tension. Reduced incidence of chronic pain, insomnia and infertility have been found.( Dr. Herbert Benson, Harvard Mind/Body Medical Institute, 2005.) The relaxation response has also been found to counteract several stress related disease processes such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Alheimer's, Depression, Schizophrenia and anxiety (T. Esch et al, Medical Science Monitor, 2003).
"There are many ways to walk the Labyrinth, ways as unique as each person who comes to walk."
Perhaps you are looking for a chance to celebrate, explore, to feel joyful and connected?
Do you feel a need for balance, meaningful activity, mindfulness and reconnection to what is really important to you?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, this is your opportunity to try a tool that can lead to making healthy changes in your life.
Holly offers several workshops using the Labyrinth as a Health & Wellness tool for clients of all ages.
What is a Labyrinth?
A labyrinth is an ancient winding circular peaceful pathway that is found in cultures worldwide. It is commonly used today as a physical, mental, emotional & spiritual health and wellness tool. It is a universal symbol.
The Labyrinth promotes mindfulness, relaxation, insight, hope, personal growth, balance, coordination, concentration,
memory, creativity, connection & transformation.
Are you struggling to keep up with the expectations of Daily Life? Juggling, work, family, friends, unending commitments with no peaceful time for yourself? Overwhelmed? Stressed?
Or maybe you are finding yourself at a loss, with too much time on your hands? Not feeling motivated? Not sure what direction to take?
