valla business card


Valla Reid is known to many as  an awesome hairstylist but did you know she is just  as wonderful as a Reiki Master?  The “urban dictionary” describes a “HAIRAPIST” as one who cuts hair for a living, and after many years of hearing it all and providing advise, receives an honourary PHD in therapy.  So, after 26 years in hairapy and during a major life change, Valla started going to “Healing Circle Meditation Class” in Marmora.  She always knew that true beauty comes within, but a great hair -do had to help too so why not combine both? She has also completed the Healing Circle Meditation Facilitators Course and Bars Course and continues to expand her spiritual growth. Valla often uses  crystals in her sessions as well, how awesome is that?

Her love and attraction to crystals has drawn her to design and create beautiful crystal malas and healing bracelets.  Be sure to stop by her table to see all her lovely creations.

Shirley Moy will be offering mini readings for $20 during the Women in Wellness.  Here is her story in Shirley’s own words:
Hello! You’ve probably heard about me but just in case you haven’t, my name is
Shirley Moy.

“My spiritual journey began when I was  only 13. My grandmother had just passed away
and had visited me at the end of my bed. While having a conversation with her,
my  mother could hear me talking and wondered who I was talking to. Since then I have had many conversations with loved ones who have crossed over.

In the past years I have visited many spiritual churches such as Oshawa and
London, England. I have learned so much from each one.
There is so much gratitude with this “gift” that I have. I would love to share
this gift with you and give you messages from your loved ones.

I am looking forward to having a session with you!

Light and love, from Shirley Moy”

Katharine Grace:

After 35 years within the confines of the commercial art field Katharine yearned to produce art that was an expression her instinctive creativity…  a joyful bound into the realm of purposelessness… art with no other purpose than to be pleasing to the eye, the heart and the soul.  The result is a line of jewellery that celebrates the depth of feminine beauty. It is simple and elegant in its joyful purposelessness: an expression of emotion, playfulness, courage, joy, strength and spirituality to be worn for no other reason than to be enjoyed. Each piece is created in the mindful space of the heart that each woman possesses and is blessed and cleansed with the power of light and love.
