Your body, mind and soul are Sacred Space. Shifting wounds into wisdom and loving life, is the art of inspired transformation. The journey out of the pain of sexual abuse to wholeness is in boldly allowing insights and inspiration to bring forth authentic empowerment, fulfillment and inner peace.

The Willows of Meyers Creek

JocelineJocelyne Granger offers the Mitzvah Technique out of her studio in Trenton, The Willows of Myers Creek.  She is also a Certified Life Style Consultant as she makes use of an IMRS (Intelligent Magnetic Resonance System) in her studio. Jocelyne has studied Tai Chi and Chi Kung under Sifu Robert Walther for the last 20 years and is also an instructor of both these Arts.

Jocelyne was born and raised in Québec. She pursued Commercial Studies in Riviére du Loup, QC. She then held administrative and accounting positions in the private sector and worked in the Public Service for 25 years.

Her journey into Wellness started in 1975 with the study of Yoga and has been ongoing since. In 1987, she went through a very dramatic experience which then was considered a “burn out” by the medical establishment. For her, this was a call for radical changes. She describes her experience as a Spiritual one. With the help and support of some amazing colleagues and her family, she began to recover but as a very different person. She undertook studies in classical guitar. She began to study Tai Chi and Chi Kung, then proceeded to study the Martial Arts of Chito Riu Karate and Jiu Jitsu to eventually become an instructor of the Chinese Martial Arts. Then came the study of the Mitzvah Technique: She is very much an advocate of life-long learning.

“Rarely have I met an instructor who is more genuinely caring about her students than Sifu Jocelyne Granger. With her significant experience in Tai Chi and Chi Kung, she is able to adapt the material she teaches to the needs of the individual student – and do so with patience and gentleness.” – Robert Walther, Chief Instructor, Snow Tiger Martial Arts Association. www.thewillowsofmeyerscreek.ca

valla business cardReiki by Valla Reid

Valla Reid is known to many as  an awesome hairstylist but did you know she is now 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 25 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? Valla often uses  crystals in her Reiki sessions as well, how awesome is that?

I always knew there was more to everyday existence than waking up, graduating, going to work, getting married, having babies, lather, rinse, repeat. So I began my journey in seeking and awakening. I have discovered how vitally important it is to Love Yourself First and foremost. When we do that, we become more fully present and aware, to contribute, create and love.

For about 12 years, I have been studying and practicing a variety of Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology techniques, seeking certification in my favourite modalities. Find out how easy and joyous change can be using Emotion Code, Matrix Reimprinting and Access Consciousness Bars. I will be offering mini sessions in Emotion Code at Women in Wellness.
