World Mental Health Awareness Day

Mindful Moments for You

Mental Health issues affect 1 in 5 Canadians each year, a statistic that doesn’t include those among us who are undiagnosed. Throughout the month of October, we want to do our part to support our community by providing resources, spreading awareness, and having open Mindful Conversations to help reduce the stigma of mental illnesses.

World Mental Health Day By Donation Class

Hillary Keegan used her crystal sound bowls in this candle-lit donation class.  Guests were lead through a feel-good flow, poetry, affirmations, and a full sound bath – all for a great cause! 

100% of the money raised was donated to The Bloom Group. This organization responds to the most urgent needs of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. They have a number of incredible support services for the community in need including women & children’s support, mental health housing, supportive + affordable housing, hospice, and adult guardianship.
