Avril is a passionate advocate for hypnobirthing because it is rooted in science, hormones and biology. It is a common-sense way to birth that allows a woman’s body and mind connection to be strengthened. When we know how birth works then we can engage in practices that help the process, making it calm, peaceful and enjoyable! Hypnobirthing aims to dispel the common misconceptions of birth. We are told that birth is an unsafe and something to dread. Hypnobirthing changes all that by instilling peace and positivity to the woman.
It took Avril and her husband 4 years and 6 rounds of IVF to meet their baby. During this time, Avril came to appreciate what women have to go through to arrive at their babies. The fears, pain and disappointments are untold. Having gone through her own experience, a love of birth and eliminating the fear attached to it has emerged. Her own experience of infertility makes her an understanding ear to any other woman who is going through the same or similar experiences. She is open and willing to help any woman who is in the same position. Please reach out.
She is now committed to guiding women to have a peaceful, calm, gentle and empowered births. She is passionate about helping women tap into their strength within. She is committed to helping women realise that labour should not be feared or dreaded. Through hypnobirthing, it can be a joyful, positive and incredible experience!
When Avril is not with her daughter, teaching English or facilitating hypnobirthing classes, she is resting! 1 year olds are no joke!

The Symphony of Scent
Jennifer Waldner has long been passionate about Mother Nature and the gifts She provides. Looking to the plants, trees and flowers for their powerful medicines and how to use them for optimal health on all levels, her passion for Aromatherapy has been years in the making.
A practicing Massage and Aromatherapist since 2006, Jennifer’s Aromatherapy specialty lies with her ability to craft personalized blends for the needs of her clients. She has worked with people of all ages, from all walks of life, with conditions ranging from anxiety, stress, chronic headaches, skin issues, muscular challenges, to palliative care with a focus on Cancer. In this workshop Jennifer will discuss the importance of the ‘Families’ and ‘Notes’ of Essential Oils. This knowledge will help you better understand the art of this craft and how to choose essential oils based on these essential properties.
“Essential oils are powerful vehicles for enhancing your health and well-being. I have witnessed their incredible powers on personal and professional levels. I am excited to share my passion and knowledge with you. I do not endorse any ‘brand’ of essential oils. I research the companies I source from and use the science behind these gifts as my guide.”
As a dancer and a choreographer, my quest is to search how to connect to the energies of life, exploring movements not for their aesthetics, but in their ability to awake inner-energy of body and mind. My parallel journey through Meditation, Sufi dance and martial arts made me realize that Dance could be considered as a dynamic Meditation practice.
Entering in our deep possibility to connect to the root-of-life through the body, I explore each movement as a branch of this cosmic-tree we embody as human.
My first works as choreographer were performances : the last ones are //Wild// on a dismantled oil-platform in the Gulf Sea wind, art-video format, and The Weave of Life I and II, for Sikka art fair.
My last show creation is #MEDITATE DANCE-THEATRE, with 8 artists on stage from Flamenco, Indian kathak dance and Kottakal, Chinese martial arts and contemporary dance, with live musicians.
On the journey of healing through dance and meditation, I also discovered many therapeutic knowledges and techniques, from the West and the East. After completing a 450 Hr training in Buddhist Philosophy, meditation and Tibetan psychology, in parallel to my artistic carrier I’ve been working as a psychotherapist since 3 years: I am specialised in short term therapies, in Gifted children or adults, using the strong tools of EFT, NLP, MBCT (from the West) and Non-Dual transformation from Tibetan tantric tradition for healing from Traumas leading to depression and PTSD.
I recently designed a zoom course, “WHO AM I?, A map for the human being// body-mind-energy interrelatedness”, theory and practice, which will start on the 27thFeb 2021 for 8 week-ends.
Say yes to your Mother and you say yes to Life
Often our relationship with our mother is rich and beautiful, but can often also be very complex and frustrating. In this workshop, we look beyond the past hurts and learn to connect with our mother in a different and more loving way through the eyes of Family Constellation. We will connect with your inner light, understanding that without your mother you wouldn’t be here. When you learn to say YES to your mother, you can truly say YES to your own life. Then your life will start unfolding.
Excerpt from “Love’s Hidden Symmetry” by Gunthard Weber & Hunter Beaumont
Instead of taking our parents as they are, children sometimes presume to evaluate them as if parents had to earn the right to be parents. They say, in effect, “I don’t like this about you, so you’re not my father.” Or, “You didn’t give me what I needed, so you can’t be my mother.” This is an absurd distortion of reality. Parents enter parenthood through the events of conception and birth, and these acts alone make them the child’s parents. Children are absolutely powerless to change anything about this first giving and taking.
Children experience inner solidity and a clear sense of identity when they find resolution with their parents, when they take both parents and acknowledge them as they are. They feel incomplete and empty when they exclude one or both of their parents from their hearts. The consequence of demeaning or excluding a parent is always the same – children become passive and feel empty. This is a common cause of depression.
Children, even when they’ve been hurt by their parents, can still say: “Yes, you are my parents. Everything that was in you is in me too. I acknowledge that you are my parents, and I accept the consequences that has for me. I take the good from what you gave, and I trust you to deal with your fate as you see fit.” Then they are free to set about the often difficult work of making the best out of what may be a very bad situation.

All work exists in a none judgemental and safe space.
“Half of your being consists of your mother and half of your being consists of your father. You are here because of them; if they were not here you would not be here. All that is happening to you is, in a way, because of them … One has to become aware of this …
“So whatsoever they have done, you have to feel grateful for. And whatsoever is happening to you and will happen to you, they remain the cause, they remain your foundation. So don’t forget the foundation that’s all.”

Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Canada, Jakki was an athlete, adventure seeker and lover of all that life has to offer. At the age of 36, the unthinkable happened. Gaining large amounts of weight overnight, vomiting, unable to breathe and being so tired that a trip from the couch to the bathroom required a nap, she was turned away from Dr.’s Offices and Hospitals with a diagnosis of “You are just fat. Loose weight and you will feel better”. After months, Jakki was finally diagnosed with Congenital Heart Disease. With a 15% functioning heart, malformed heart valve, and allergic to most medicines, she turned to alternative treatments, research, and support from her international community to help manage her illness. Identifying and treating root causes, she is now medicine, medical device, and surgery free with a fully functioning heart. Wanting to share her knowledge and help others, she is an Integrative Heart Health Coach to help others with Heart Disease, Risk Factors and other Chronic Illnesses who are looking for something different and a little magic to be empowered with knowledge and choice so that they can live their best lives. She loves to share her story and to help others embrace the power of self care and choice when it comes to their health.
