This is an on site program! We cannot wait to see you.

In a time where hate is rampant, where Black, Asian, Indigenous and other communities of colour experience hate and discrimination, we need to find ways to come together to learn, heal and cope. How can you make a difference? How can you be part of that change? Join us for an interactive hybrid, online and onsite program – Healing through the Arts. This initiative introduces BIPOC speakers who share their experiences in ways we can cope and heal from our worldly difficulties. We start this program off at Five Oaks with our Indigenous Program Coordinator – Cara Frost. Also joining us will be our special guest Ruby Zinsmeister, Energy Healer & Body Specialist. Ruby will guide us through ‘Yoga Nidra’ a powerful process of releasing the physical body, quieting the brain waves, tapping into our emotional body, and gaining a higher intellect. Yoga Nidra is known to help with insomnia, trauma, PTSD, anxiety and to help restore energy, promote creativity and overall health.

We welcome you to join us for a day of reflection, hope and learning!

Agenda for the day:

– Hiking on the trail

– Reflection circle including beading with the Indigenous Coordinator – Cara Frost

– Yoga Nidra exercise with holistic healer/body work expert Ruby Zinsmeister!

It starts with you……Pay if Forward, give another the gift to take part in this day of healing. “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day, someone might do the same for you” – no donation is too big or too small!

Please bring a blanket, a reusable water bottle and anything you need to be comfortable for a day outside.
