We are very pleased to announce that in keeping with our theme The Maiden, The Mother and The Crone…making it happen! we are having two amazing women speak between 4 and 4:30. You will not want to miss this!


Lindy Garneau is of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation on the West Coast of Newfoundland. Never having lived in her traditional territory, she grew up in Campbellford, Ontario.

As women, one of our greatest gifts is our ability to create strong relationships with each other at every age and every stage of life. As a child, Lindy sat around her mother’s kitchen table and listened to her Aunties talk together, cry together, and laugh together. In these moments Lindy found her greatest teachings, about women, about wellness, and about how holistic care begins within our own supportive communities.

As an adult, Lindy has brought her community building skills to her work as a student affairs professional at Trent University. Her experience includes advising, coaching, counselling, and providing academic support to students. Lindy also co-developed and taught the Foundations of Indigenous Learning course, part of the Indigenous Studies Diploma Program. She is responsible for coordinating many student and staff events, most notably the Not Myself Today Campaign, raising awareness about mental health in the workplace. In July 2014 Lindy was named the Head of Peter Gzowski College at Trent University.

Lindy holds an undergraduate degree from Trent University where she majored in Indigenous Studies and History. She is currently a student in the Master of Education, Post-Secondary Studies program at Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador. Her research focuses on transformational learning and the learning communities that best support adult learners within their learning and growing journeys.

In 2012 Lindy was awarded the Lorne Ellingson Coaching Scholarship from Adler International Learning Inc. and created her own personal coaching business Living into Transformation. For more information about Lindy visit www.lindygarneau.ca

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?
