Being a mamma is tough - all of the expectations to do right by your children and your partner and still chase your dreams, and … well, it’s easy to get lost in it all.

Nestled within the rhythms of the seasons lies a lunar energy pulsing through us and around us at all times. It governs the tides of the oceans and it influences our energy and behaviour. As women we have the ability to work in tandem with this energy.

When you live in a town full of non-stop adventure and activity ten months out of the year, it often feels weird to take a ‘break’ during the shoulder seasons.

As parents we all want to make sure that we have the tools needed to ensure our children have a successful school year. Whether you have a preschooler or a university student this workshop covers it all. Join Heather Ivany as she shares how essential oils can help your kids mentally, physically, and emotionally all year long.

Birth is the ultimate beginning. Each new parent patiently waits nine months to meet their little one and begin the big adventure. With this beginning comes one of the purest forms of joy but also restless nights and extreme fatigue.

Most people who have been around pregnancy and birth are familiar with the concept of perinatal mood and anxiety disorders but only know of them as something called “Postpartum” and conventionally only consider postpartum depression in that category.
