Learn to Meditate
Meditation has become increasingly more popular as people experience the many benefits including easing of stresses like anxiety, worry, depression and pain. It also allows the experience of deep relaxation which has a positive impact on sleep and our ability to experience happiness.
I began meditating as a teenager and believe it has been my saving grace in life. It has provided me with a connection to a deeper part of myself, where peace exists. This connection has been an anchor during difficult times and has proven to be an essential tool on my path to happiness, health and understanding the need to be able to care for ourselves and others.
Loving Kindness Meditation for Beginners
The Loving Kindness meditation is a Buddhist meditation for developing compassion for oneself and others. In this course, you will also learn the foundations of meditation, including relaxation techniques, proper posture, and the use of breath. Whether you are new to meditation or meditate regularly you are welcome to join in the practice of Loving Kindness.
Sheri Fogarty was introduced to the Loving Kindness Meditation during her training in the Contemplative End of Life program at Naropa University.
Meditation and the Energy Body
Meditation is being practised in boardrooms and community centres around the world. Professional athletes use it to improve performance, and doctors are prescribing it to patients to reduce stress and anxiety, calm the mind, and promote relaxation and sleep.
During this presentation, we will look at the history of meditation in the western world, the different types of meditation, and the challenges many people experience when starting a meditation practice.
You will learn tips on how to meditate, and the impact of meditation on your chakras – the energy centres within your body that impact your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
Meditation to Awaken Your Soul
Given our busy lifestyles and never-ending pressure to keep up with phone calls, texts, and e-mails, meditation is more important than ever before. We are constantly doing and rarely just being.
Through learning how to be still, relax, and breathe, you will connect to your inner world and feel the connection each of us has to universal energy.
During this workshop you will be introduced to my signature guided Healing Light meditations. You will learn about your incredible energy body and how your life force energy – your soul’s light – moves through it.
Working with Spiritual Qualities of Kindness, Compassion, and Empathy
Empathy is an essential human spiritual skill needed in this world now more than ever. But what happens when we feel things too deeply? What if we have too much empathy and are unsure what to do with it?
Through self-reflection and connection to others we can start to build kindness, compassion, and empathy in a healthy way, instead of feeling overwhelmed and shutting down by experiencing too much.
During this workshop we will look at how deeply felt emotions impact us and our energy body. You will leave with tools to help you harness this spiritual superpower and how to create meaningful change in a safe and healthy way.
Becoming Friends with Yourself
One of the most sacred and important relationships we have is the relationship with ourselves. Making time to heal and nurture this relationship is essential for every aspect of our wellbeing. Unfortunately, for many people this sacred relationship is based on negative self-talk, self-criticism, and, at times, self-hatred rather than self-love.
Together we will look at how the painful emotions we experience in life impact how we feel about ourselves and our energy body. Energy blocks are caused by painful emotional experiences and contribute to our negative inner dialogue – what I call the “untruths” of feeling and thinking we are not good enough, worthless, bad, etc.
During this workshop you will learn about, and experience, your energy body. You will journey deep within to connect with your sacred self. It is within this deep place that we can cultivate forgiveness, love, compassion, and empathy for ourselves and others.
You will leave this workshop with a deeper connection to your soul and with tools you can use on your own to continue nurturing this sacred relationship.
Introduction to Chakras and the Energy Body
Chakras, or “wheels of light,” are energy centres located within the subtle body that impact the openness and flow of our life force energy (also known as Ki or Prana). The state of our chakras determines our health – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
During this introductory course, you will learn about each of the seven main chakras and the emotions and characteristics they govern.
The following areas will be covered:
- Seven main chakras
- What each chakra governs
- How Ki/Prana energy moves through the chakras
- Meditation to open your chakras
Introduction to Aromatherapy
This course is designed to introduce you to the world of aromatherapy for at-home use. Essential oils are often referred to as the ‘spirit’ of the plant or flower. These oils have been used for thousands of years for many things including healing and beauty.
As a certified aromatherapist, I have been interviewed about the amazing benefits of aromatherapy on major media platforms throughout North America. I am thrilled to share my knowledge and experience with you in this hands-on workshop.
The following topics will be covered:
- Introduction to essential oils
- Blending of essential oils
- When to use essential oils and how to use them safely
- Best essential oils for various conditions, including colds, aching muscles, and melancholy/depression
- Essential oils for skin care
