Every Picture Tells A Story, Ask Artist Ian Grant

2nd Annual HBHAS Art Exhibition Coming Soon!

Had a great time meeting artist Ian Grant on the Danforth, Areej Art Gallery, this past weekend. His solo exhibit, “The Journey” is more than a collection of photographs. His inspirations come from traveling the world. Some images cheeky and others uniquely soulful where the images transcend those influences.

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.  ~ Dorothea Lange

Make this your summer destination to drop in and discover something new and exciting!!! A dynamic opportunity to learn more about the artists and their body of work. All stunning and unique.

A Wonderful Way To Inspire & Celebrate With Community

A Leisurely Pastime Picnic Coming Soon

Research suggests spending time in a natural setting is good for your mental health. A family picnic is great family time with the kids. It’s also a wonderful tradition to strengthen ties with family and friends too.

Coming soon the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Center is celebrating its 10th Anniversary with a family picnic. I’ll be there with my rainbow set of harps to provide an opportunity for anyone interested to have an experience playing the harp.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to play the harp? Curious about this ancient musical instrument? Then you’re in for a treat.

Recreational harp music making is healthy and inclusive. It’s based on music activities that bring the community together. Come see for yourself at the JCHAC Family Picnic Sunday, June 10th, 2018. It’s the perfect opportunity to come out take part and have fun.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

How Does The Harp Aid In The Healing Process?

For many centuries the beneficial relationship between music and healing has been well established and there is plenty of documentation to prove the benefits. Music played on the harp is know for and has many healing qualities.

• Resonance from the strings

• The range of pitch and tonal Colour

• The relationship between sound and recipient

Historically the harp had been a symbol of relief and comfort.

”Frequency plus intention – equals healing.” Why? Because we are rhythm, vibration with aliveness. (our molecules, our atoms, our quantum particles)

Harping For Wellness Workshops are designed to encourage participants to engage with music by developing the basic skills needed individually and as a group to make music together.

Interested in bringing a Halton Harps music workshop to your community? To learn more please contact Francesca Durham.

Brownies Gain Confidence By Learning How To Play The Harp

Another successful Happy Harping Workshop Monday night! We had a wonderful evening with this group of Brownies. With our focus on the experience of playing the harp, the girls also enjoyed learning how to play a simple tune with confidence.

Creating magical moments one harp at a time, making friends and having fun leaves an impression and impact that lasts a lifetime for the girls.

Fusing music with arts and crafts the girls had an opportunity to explore musical sounds and rhythms by using their creativity and imagination. We had FUN!

Heartfelt thanks go out to Kathryn and her team for inviting me to share another Happy Harping Workshop in our community.

Why I Love Life Coaching

It’s simple really. I enjoy building relationships with people. Every potential client has a story and I’m genuinely interested to learn more about their human ability, life and being.

Life coaching is a catalyst for change. No matter where you’re stuck, as your coach I have the opportunity to guide and inspire your walk toward a new destination. It’s exciting!! Life coaching blends every creative tool I use to facilitate, coach and mentor.

To provide you with an experience or opportunity to seek and discover more about yourself allows me to learn something about myself. My role as your Life Coach is to empower you through expectation. The next step is to facilitate your learning and uncover the why. How is the easy part.

I enjoy helping clients transition through major life crisis opening a pathway for re-discovering their potential. That’s the fun part.

Discussions and conversations happen one to one or in small class sizes. Dialogue can be emotional, enriching, expansive, and most of all uplifting. The goal is to improve health and well-being.

The 3 pillars that guide my Life Coaching, while not new, work best with my coaching style. They are:

Leadership – Who can guide you?
Relationship – Who can you trust?
Opportunity – Dream Bigger

Leo Buscaglia said,

If you’ve been thinking about Life Coaching or self-improvement in any way you’re likely ready to stretch yourself and that’s a good thing. There is a saying that goes: When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.

What we all have is time. How much time is unknown. What I know for sure is that when the time is right for Life Coaching, follow your intuition those hunches and that nagging in your mind reminding you it’s time for change.

Life Coaching is about change and that’s what I love. To give hope and inspire change helps my clients remember growth is a necessary part of the process and journey.

“Change is the end result of all true learning.” Leo Buscaglia.
