Waking Up With Mindfulness – a 28-day immersion!

January is a dark month on a normal year, and these days it is doubly so. Taking care of oneself throughout it all is so important, and we are excited to release a 28-day online immersion called Waking Up With Mindfulness to help support you in that endeavour within your own life.

This is a complimentary offering that is freely accessible to everyone – made possible with financial support from the Government of Manitoba Safe At Home program! #safeathomemb

Starting January 4th, we will release a 20-30 minute practice video everyday for the rest of the month on my YouTube channel. This course is designed to introduce the beginner-meditator to simple and sustainable mindfulness practices, while also offering support to those with previous experience. All the course material is taught by me, Adrienne, with technical support from David Quiring.

Practising mindfulness meditation has been shown to reduce stress, improve mental health, and strengthen resilience. In what is usually considered the most depressing time of the year, let us focus on taking good care of ourselves so that we can better serve others with our presence.

Mindfulness is within reach of us all and will meet each of us where we are. In this spirit, the practices offered will utilize technology to be as accessible as possible – emphasizing high audio quality to serve those with vision impairment and closed captioning to serve those who are deaf or hard of hearing. You can practise with us sitting or lying down, in the morning or evening, when you are feeling good or maybe not-so-good, alone or with a roommate…whatever your situation, we invite you to practise with us.

Both David and I hope that this offering can support us all as we continue to navigate the challenges of living in the COVID-19 pandemic. Feel free to share this with your family and friends!

Ayurveda: A Life of Balance, Inner-healing, and Self-Love

Through an emphasis on addressing an individual’s physical, mental, and emotional aspects, Ayurveda is a traditional healing method for achieving wellness and harmony. Considered the sister science of yoga, it offers the methods to guide our path towards inner healing in a way that is sustainable, rooted, and holistic.

One of the most important principles of Ayurveda is that of balance; one aspect of balance is the interplay between ourselves and the environment we live in. Through this workshop, discover daily self-care practices and considered cooking and food choices that enable us to connect deeper with ourselves and the world around us. Unearth simple, logical wisdom that enables resilience, well-being, and self-love.

Join Adrienne Shum (MSc, ALC) for an inspiring discussion on how the grounded, wise system of Ayurveda can be applied to your unique needs and lifestyle, and propel your journey towards wholeness.
