Hi Everyone,

We have made the decision to postpone the free breath circle tomorrow evening at

With the still fluctuating fire conditions, what is feeling best, is to wait until there is a bit more “space” available for people to venture out.

We will offer this again soon !

Dear Shuswap and Breath Community…

The fires in our area have had a huge impact already on so many, and it’s truly heartbreaking. 💔

If you are on the front lines, evacuated, experiencing loss or feeling heavily impacted by these fires please consider joining us on Friday evening. Info for the offering is below:

Free Community Breath Circle
Friday, Sept 1st 530-8pm

At this time of heightened stress, overwhelm and grief, we are heartened to be able to offer a FREE circle of breath, community and sharing for all of those who have impacted by the fires in our community.

Breathwork is a beautiful, gentle and potent way to bring our bodies, minds and hearts back into a state of wellness and regulation. Expertly guided and held by facilitators Kylie Judge and Reanna Costa, this time is meant to be a place and space to unburden all the parts of your self. In this conscious, connected way of working with breath and with the compassionate support of Kylie and Reanna, this time will help you bring more resource to yourself, your family and the community.

This event is open to everyone in all the different levels of impact from the fires: first responders, fire fighters, evacuees, community support works, etc…

Space is limited to 20ppl. Please RSVP to [email protected] to reserve a spot

If spaces fill and interest is high, we will host a second circle so everyone can receive this support.

I have the honour of journeying to Kaslo and supporting my dear friend Reanna Costa in her upcoming retreat this coming weekend “Re-birthing the New Earth.”

If you are feeling like you need: to create some space both internally and externally in your life, a space to listen deeply and a compassionate supportive environment to BE and wander deeper… this might be for you ❤️

Here is a brief description and link for more info….

“Rebirthing The New Earth is a dynamic and delightful blend of nervous system science and the beautiful cross-cultural shamanic teachings of The Pachakuti Mesa Tradition. In this time together we will explore intentional practices for creating new ways of being within ourselves and within the world; we will acknowledge that the earth is dramatically changing, and with it, we are being asked to change too. “

I will paste the link in the comments below too :)

Breath and Being Community… oh how I have missed you !
I’m just over 4 months post-surgery… and the proud embodiment of two new shiny TMJ joints. Nerves are still healing, feeling is still returning but I’m starting to feel more and more energy returning to my system. This time though, I’m going to stay in the nourishing cycle… I’m going to keep caring for my body-mind and tending to my needs. Im going to continue brain retraining with exercises from , supporting my vagus nerve, treating my physical body with the , resting, eating well, drinking medicinal infusions and remembering to play…
I’m going to stay with the self-care for a couple more weeks until my birthday ! On Sept. 17th I’m going to celebrate that this surgery is in the rear view mirror and that with incredible support and care, my body has recovered and I’m coming into a new season of vitality, health and well-being!
I can’t wait to support you from this rejuvenated space 💛

For those of you who have reached out about booking sessions while I’ve been off, please feel free to reach out again and we can book a time to connect in the coming weeks. 🌈

This has been such a good time for me to be with my own breath and beingness …. And after 4 months of cocooning - I’m almost ready to step into the world anew. After 23 years of chronic illness and jaw “stuff” - IT’S TIME✨ and I’M EXCITED!

Thank you ALL for your support, grace, and encouragement. As one of my wise women says, “ We can do hard things - together.” This most certainly feels true for me from where I sit today - I couldn’t have done this alone.

Onward dear ones …. With deep appreciation for the healing that is possible and is happening NOW 🧡

Grateful for reading this post today ….I feel it in my bones right now - grief changes you, indeed it does.

Loss can be experienced in many forms. It can be felt physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually and likely may have layers of all of these wrapped in together. Grief and loss leave their mark and change us in profound ways.

These changes can feel painful and confusing at the time AND they can also lead us to profound connection and authentic living.

I’m walking slowly along this path currently, healing after my surgery and feeling how this new grief is touching old bits that have been tucked away. Taking deep breaths, feeling the layers as they rise and meeting each one of them with care and gentleness…..

The first three weeks post surgery have been about feeling the loss, being in the aloneness, using my voice and expressing my grief.

Today I’m noticing things are shifting and I’m feeling profound togetherness, support and care …

My practice currently is letting that in too …. Letting it all exist and be witnessed; Healing, humanness, hard times and sweet surrender.

Practicing with each breath, with each moment that floats in and floats away …. Life can change the blink of an eye can’t it ? Oh to blink again … when that day comes, it will be a celebration! It’s the little things…. That change everything.
Keep going loves, holding yourself and others with upmost care and compassion … one breath at a time.

This is a BIG moment …. Breath and Being and the rest of my outer world is about to take pause; as I step into surgery tomorrow morning, for what I believe and hope will be the last leg of this journey with rehabilitating my jaw.

After waiting for 2 years, I will be having total joint replacement surgery of both of my TMJ joints tomorrow morning at 7:45am.

I believe with all of my heart that we are connected as community through breath so I’m sharing this with you all to ask you to please take some deep breaths with me - and hold me in your hearts and prayers tomorrow morning especially but also in the coming weeks and months if you are open to doing so.

This is a big surgery but throughout this preparation I’ve been surrounded by joy, laugher, play, love , good food, kindness and so much beauty !

Surrounded by so many loved ones, people who are ready and willing to offer their healing expertise and support and also my my own loving self. The genuine love, grace and care I am ready to extend to myself tomorrow and beyond, feels abundant and strong.

In so many ways since 2004, I’ve been on a journey of unraveling, unlearning and falling deeper into love. This feels like a very big beginning for the next chapter of my life.

Please join me in seeing it - feeling it … FULL of even more vibrancy, health and well-being. ❤️ I’m so grateful for this breath community - and all the support I have near and far …!

Thank you !! With all of the golden love in my heart 💛✨💛

❤️How much love can one heart feel ….
💜What does loving really mean ?
💗How does love express itself through us ?
🌺 We just returned from offering a breath circle in Samara called Breathing Love. Consciously connecting with what that means for each of us internally and externally…. Contemplating together what love is and then inviting our breath to show us the way…. thank you for inviting us to share with your community 🦋 and to .wallace.18041 for welcoming us with such an open heart !
From beginning to end, my soul was touched so deeply and I was honoured to have two incredible men supporting the circle and Chris Bliss. SO much was expressed, felt, moved, let in and let go - a tremendous gift for me to be together with others in these depths.
Then we travelled back to our farm on Valentine’s Day with our dear friends, and were met with hearts made of flowers, a feast, farm to table chocolate truffles and secret Valentines exchanges of Nature infused gifts. To witness ALL of this love being exchanged, celebrated and honoured gave me such a renewed faith in what feels like very trying times. I love you family … thank you for reminding me what’s possible 💜 and you invite me to be the best version of myself and let more love in! Thank you thank you thank you …. Breath Community - let’s keeping going 🦋

You know that all familiar question …

“So what do you do ?”

I’ve always struggled to answer that in a way that felt authentic. Whatever I said just never really felt true.

Until I had a shiatsu massage with a healer in Costa Rica and remembered a few important pieces about why I’m here 💗

Then my best friend made me this fabulous shirt …. After all these years, I finally have a uniform that FEELS good, and a response to that all familiar question above.

I’m a love doctor 🌈 at your service.

What or who brings you into your heart space instantly? This guy is one of my greatest teachers, who invites me into my heart multiple times a day 💜

This tender place that can feel a little scary sometimes but also feels like home.

How does your ❤️ feel in your body right now …. Just notice ?

And the space around your heart - how does it feel ?

Now take 5 deep conscious connected breaths, starting in the belly - slow inhale - expand the belly - breath rises to the heart and fills the space around the heart - slow exhale - repeat five times in a circular, connected flow.

Notice … how the heart and space around the heart feels now ? Same ? Different ? New ? Old? Do you feel more present ?

Love your heart, nourish this space with your own breath medicine and don’t forget to love the ones who remind you of unconditional love simply be being.

“Now is where love breathes.”
- Rumi

How are we grounding in the chaos?

I don’t know about you, but I often feel like I’m in the middle of a hurricane these days, inside and out.

So how do we stay present, in body and connected …. What are we practicing ? What are the tools that are working for you ?

For me, it’s conscious breathing, movement, connection, writing and time in nature. It’s tuning out all the noise, so I can hear the voice inside.

It feels important to come together and breath again. To witness each other just as we are, and give ourselves a loving space to move some of this intense energy while being deeply supported by love.

Inviting you to come as you are. Sunday evening, October 3rd, 6-9pm in Vernon. PM for the link to sign up ❤️ or head to the website in bio for more details.

Ps - I love you.

“And when all the wars are over, a butterfly will still be beautiful.”

- Ruskin Bond, Scenes from a Writer's Life

There is war happening in the world, in many countries, in many homes, in many bodies and many hearts.

Simultaneously there is beauty unfolding in the cracks, the unexpected gifts and sacred moments - the pause in between the inhales and the exhales.

Let’s feel into that …

The beauty present in this very moment…. What is it for you? What is here to remind you of the love that just IS?

A few moments of stillness and silence, a warm drink, sitting under the stars and watching them twinkle, the rain, a cuddle with your favourite animal or human, a flower blooming, a new song, a convo with a friend, a bath …. A smile from a stranger.

Let’s breathe beauty in and let it take it’s right place here too. And maybe sprinkle it around a little … just for fun. 💜💫🌟🦋

I love you.
Deep breaths…
These are defining times that we are in.
Let’s keeping choosing love together.
We are all unique creatures - we all have ways, needs, traumas, strengths, habits, limits, openings, and desires that are unique to our beings.
There is no one size fits all.
Let’s take a breath together, find our courage, stand strong and remain soft.
There is great power in listening…
Reach out if you need support in riding these waves. ❤️

If you haven't already heard me gush about Leah & Kylie of Breath and Being, then get ready... they are AMAZING teachers and healers in the powerful art of breathwork! And guess what?? They are bringing their beautiful work to my office space in Ravenna on Sunday February 9th -- lucky us!!! Grab your tickets now, spots are limited.
I attended my 2nd Breath Workshop with Kylie and Leah on November 15, 2019. This time the practice began with Kate playing Singing Bowls which was a beautiful way to relax and start the breath work. I was amazed at how being in a group where a safe and sacred space was created helped me to let go of any fear or stress I was holding and just be with my breath. Deeply relaxing for me. Powerful and healing. Being with others sharing from their hearts created such a sense of how we are all connected, all dealing with challenges and all longing for a safe space to heal. Kylie & Leah have something very special to offer in their workshops for anyone ready to make an inward journey into self.
You are so lovely, girls... thanks for your practice
I attended my first Workshop with Kylie & Leah in Mara yesterday afternoon. They facilitated some deep release work for me by creating a safe, supportive, sacred space. I am so grateful to have had this healing inward journey. I am still processing my experience and reflecting on what it feels like to be present with myself, in my body with kindness & compassion for myself. I am really starting to understand the saying ‘the only way out is through’. Namaste
