About Me

I am a retired Elementary School Vice-Principal and former Special Education Consultant for the Trillium Lakelands D.S.B which will serve me well considering that "accessibility for all" has been my life's work. I have attended the Yoga Conference in Toronto several times. I also attended two, one-week conferences in Toronto where the Chopra Centre's, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Simon, David Greenspan - davidji, and many others taught me about the natural science of Ayurveda, Primordial Sound Meditation, and different styles of yoga. I am a Reiki Practitioner - Level One. Now in retirement and due to a chronic pain condition, osteoarthritis, my daily practice involves using a chair. Because I volunteer with our Central East: Local Health Integration Network (CE:LHIN) by co-leading and being a Master Trainer in the Community Workshop, LIVING A HEALTHY LIFE WITH CHRONIC PAIN, my intention is to help those participants by giving workshops in my church or their church(es), synagogues, mosque or whatever as a follow-up or a prelude to the pain workshop. As well, beginning this fall, I will be volunteering with our CE:LHIN by teaching Mindfulness Awareness Stabilization Training in our community to help people learn about the brain, reduce anxiety and self-regulate their emotions.
