Emotionally & Spiritually Preparing for Baby

Most expectant parents are aware of the physical changes they need to make in their lives to have a healthy pregnancy and baby, whether through nutrition or exercise; but what about emotional and spiritual health? A new baby brings major changes to family dynamics and relationships. Being on the same page about major decisions in child-rearing is vital before baby arrives. Having a strong emotional and spiritual foundation as a couple will bring peace of mind in the coming sleep deprived years!

Emotional Release Series

Our emotions are our inner guidance as to whether someone or something is good for us. When we understand the messages our emotions are bringing us, we are able to release them and allow for more balance in our lives. Each week we will explore the 5 main emotions people hang on to, their messages and how to release them. Each workshop module is designed to be a complete unit and can be taken individually or you can sign up for the entire series.

Module I – Anger

Anger can be blinding and detrimental to our relationships with others. What messages does anger provide? Learn how to release anger in a healthy and safe way.

Module II – Sadness

Sadness depletes our energy and can suck the joy out of life. What messages does sadness give us? Learn how to release sadness to make room for more joy in your life.

Module III – Fear

Fear can paralyze us from moving forward on our path. What does fear represent? Join us and begin to overcome your fears and live a full life.

Module IV – Jealousy

Jealousy keeps us from appreciating the wonderful things in our life. What messages does jealousy offer? Learn how to move from focusing on others to experiencing your own joys.

Module V – Anxiousness

Anxiousness does not allow us to be fully present in our lives. What messages does anxiety offer? Learn how to release anxiety to feel safe and secure.

Healing through Archetypes Series

Do you feel like the same dramas keep playing out in your relationships with others? Are you tired of playing the same role over and over? Join us as we explore the 5 main archetypes and heal the patterns in our lives. You will gain insight into your own behaviours and the behaviours of those around you. Each workshop module is designed to be a complete unit and can be taken individually or you can sign up for the entire series.

Module I – Victim/Poor Me

Do you or anyone you know, repeatedly say “Why do bad things always happen to me?” Living in the Victim or Poor Me archetype prevents us from taking control of our destiny. Join us to learn how to move past the Victim.

Module II – Martyr

Are you always placing others’ needs first; having no energy or time left for you at the end of the day? Playing the Martyr leaves us depleted, resentful and unfulfilled. Take this first step out of Martyrdom and join us for a night of healing.

Module III – Aggressor

Have you been called a bully? Do people avoid having discussions with you? Do you dominate conversations and decisions? The Aggressor archetype can be damaging to all relationships, especially with those closest to us. Join us to learn how to tame the inner aggressor.

Module IV – Aloof

Would others use the words “mysterious”, “cold” or “unemotional” to describe you? An aloof person holds their cards close to them, so that no one truly knows them. Join us to learn how to open up and trust others again.

Module V – Child

Do you have troubles making decisions and let others decide for you? Do you find yourself in situations where others are constantly taking care of you, financially, or emotionally? When we live in the Child archetype, we tend not to take responsibility easily, either out of fear or habit. Join us to learn how to mature the child without losing the joy and free spirit nature.

Each module is 2 hours. You may sign up for each individual workshop or the entire series.
