Expanding possibilities with sound
Thank you for your interest in workshops! My name is Lauren and I have been facilitating wellness offerings since 2011. I bring my passion, diverse knowledge and experience to each workshop.
Compassionate and integral care are infused into every workshop experience. Mindfulness, meditation, mental wellness tools, embodiment movement practices, women's health, team building, creative expansion and breathwork are a few of the topics that I have extensively studied and offered over the past decade.
Below you will find a list of possibilities that are run by myself or available for your retreat/event.
Each workshop is adaptable to your interests or themed event to best support your intended goals. They are structured with a balance of direct experience and didactic presentation style.
Blending engaging activities, informative discussions and reflective moments to integrate and anchor the experience. I focus on delivering the workshops in a playful atmosphere leading to grounded, experiential knowledge with the capacity to apply it.

Experience an informative and experiential introduction to mindfulness and meditation. I share the power of the breath and mind for overall well-being. We explore ways to regulate the nervous system that are way beyond sitting still on a cushion. I love sharing the many active ways to meditate and how to bring this knowledge into everyday life experiences. We discuss effective ways to manage stress and increase coherence and mental/emotional wellness.

You learn ways to find and strengthen your authentic sensual sounds for increased expression and pleasure. Experience the power of sound through yourself as a sacred instrument. Together we honour, acknowledge and celebrate this beautiful part of ourselves. Attuning within and resounding with our ecstatic nature and birthrights.
Sound & Cacao Ceremony
Add a ceremony to your event or plan an event around this beautiful opportunity to intentionally connect in a ceremonial way. There are many potential expressions of this offering and it can be customized for your intentions. I bring the cacao, a powerful heart opening plant medicine. We drink this deliciously smooth cacao after opening our ceremony and then flow into an intentional space with meditative sounds, discussions and connection. These ceremonies can have many themes so please reach out with your curiosities and intentions. Some examples of past ceremonies include celebrations of life, motherhood, sisterhood, life transitions, blessing new spaces, sexual healing, forgiveness and self-love.
These workshops are also run independently by myself or with collaborators so please check the events page for possible opportunities to come to a workshop. Timing of workshops varies from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Pricing starts at $150 and up depending on the location, duration and type of workshop.
