a WEEKEND FOR health care workers, HEALERS, and coaches

November 9-10, 2019

With Alison Crosthwait, Rebecca Keating, Richard Kwan, and Jennifer Mansell


When we work one on one with people we often take on some of their energy. This accumulates over time.

Put down some of the burden you have been carrying.

Spend a weekend on yourself. In the deepest sense of the word.

A weekend to clear your energy and open your heart for yourself first and your work second.

November 9-10, 2019.

Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 10am-5pm

The Cove Healing Centre, Woodbridge, ON (25 minutes north of Yonge and Bloor or a 10 minute bus from Vaughan subway station)

$550+HST Early bird (register by Oct 15), $650+HST thereafter.

Registration is by application including a health questionnaire and brief interview to be sure this is the right fit for you.

The Vision

We can give without losing anything ourselves.

Our energy can be strong and open and ripple naturally into our work.

It is our relationship with ourselves (another way of saying our energy) that facilitates healing.

And we can have it while supporting others.

Our work can actually give us energy - consistently.

Our open and clear energy allows us to see our clients clearly - accessing the physical, emotional, and intuitive information we experience to help them heal.

We have ground - we feel ourselves first.

We have pleasure - we enjoy our lives.

We have clear self-concept.

And then we can meet our clients.

Our relationship with ourselves is magic and we bring that to our work.

The Challenge

We feel our clients first - not us.

We carry patterns of taking care of others to make sure we ourselves our safe.

We get lost in technique and confuse that with healing.

We focus on the intellectual learnings of our trainings to avoid feeling ourselves.

We carry unfelt grief and rage and joy.

Without ground, pleasure, and self-esteem we project our feelings onto our clients.

Our blocks become clinical blocks.

We work on ourselves for our own sake and for the sake of our clients and we do this work in layers, over time.

Kambo Cleanse

On Saturday you will have the opportunity to participate in a Kambo cleanse facilitated by Rebecca Keating.

Kambo is a traditional sacred medicine used by many of the tribes of the upper Amazon rainforest. Kambo is a very safe and legal secretion that is collected from the Phyllomedusa Bicolor (Kambo) frog. The frogs are never harmed during this process and are returned to their natural habitat. 

Kambo cleanses us of the toxins, negative energies, suppressed emotions, and physical issues that keep us in poor health and out of alignment with our true self. Kambo will give your entire body a deep cleansing and reset, connecting you back to your spirit and higher purpose.

The ceremony will be supported with crystal sound bowls and will conclude with a sound bath.

More information about Kambo can be found on Rebecca’s Kambo Healing website.

Energy Work

We will clear negative and stuck energies, open your heart and call back power to you.

We will use Reiki, Qi Gong, Shamanic work, and Belvaspata - a channeled angelic healing method - to clear and open you and support your intention.

Sharing & Connection

Client work can be lonely! We will share our intentions and processes together. Our circle will offer each participant loving attention and an opportunity to connect with and support each other at a deep level.

You will have space to further process and express emotions unearthed by the Kambo Cleanse, Energy Work, and Breathwork.


On Sunday we will spend the morning in a breath work session with Jennifer Mansell.

Breathwork is the experience of using Conscious Connected Breath (a specific breathing technique) in a safe and comfortable environment where you are guided and supported to enter a non ordinary, relaxed state of consciousness. In this state, it is possible to have deep experiences of release, transformation, clarity, healing, and awakening.

Breathwork is an active meditation that is done with music and guided support to help you grow and heal on all levels. By breathing in large amounts of energy and air, blockages and old tensions are able to be accessed at their root and come up to the surface to be witnessed, released, and integrated back into the whole. 

On one hand the experience is activating and stimulating, and on the other it can allow you to relax and release tension while liberating limiting beliefs. It can connect you to your innate wisdom while gently expanding your being in new ways you may not have known were possible.


Participants will leave the weekend with:

  • A significant shift in their energy.

  • Deeper connection to their own needs.

  • Further understanding of how to care for themselves in their work and life.

  • Clarity on their next steps in their practice.

  • And, mostly likely, an open heart.
