For the Love of Nature

Posted November 30, 2017

The main reason I am moving my healing practice to Ignatius is for my love of nature. Working in downtown Guelph has made me realize that having nature close by is integral to my inner peace, life purpose, and happiness. At Ignatius, all my clients and I will have free access to:

Meditation Labyrinth Stations of the Cosmos Picnic tables Ceremonial fire pits Groomed cross-country ski trails (a bonus for someone who spent about 18 years in Manitoba) 15 kms…

Essential Oils For Relaxation

Posted November 30, 2017

By Avril Marchegiano

As a highly creative person whose mind is constantly buzzing with ideas, I’ve always had a lot of difficulty getting to sleep at night. (Admittedly, my trouble with getting adequate rest might also have something to do with being a worrier…)

Lately, I’ve been putting essential oils in a diffuser in my bedroom at night in order to help me relax. Most people’s go-to EO for relaxation and sleep aid is Lavender – but personally, I can’t

Walking Through and Releasing Fear

Posted November 3, 2017

This summer, Steve and I became care takers of three cats. Eden has been with us for 6 years and has been enjoying her “only cat” status for the last year. In the spring we adopted a black female kitten that a friend found in her backyard. Then, in September, we brought in a middle aged male cat, now named Louis, that showed up on another friend’s front porch. As we have watched the three cats settle in, I’ve been intrigued with…

Essential Oils for Immune System Support

For years, my immune system has been my weak point. I’ve spent lots of time researching various tools to keep my immune system supported. One of the recent additions to my collection of supporting mechanisms is using essential oils. One combination is based on a legend from the 15th century when the bubonic plague was rampant through Europe and Asia. Thieves in Europe notoriously robbed the infected dead bodies of their possessions, yet never

Life Purpose

Posted October 5, 2017

I must say that September was a very interesting month. There were lots of unforeseen changes. Through a series of events, I am finding my voice and my purpose.

A little bit of history… As a child, I was taught to meet the needs of others. Many girls and women feel this way. There were many times that I acted as a “peacemaker” in my family. It was this “job” that drained me and led to my weakened immune system and

Book Review: “The Tenth Insight: Holding the Vision” By James Redfield 

Posted October 5, 2017

After reading the Celestine Prophecy earlier this summer, I was intrigued by the additional books in this series. So, I read “The Tenth Insight”. The adventures continue in the wilderness of the American Southeast where a friend has gone missing.

Ideas in this book really intrigue me. The concept that before we choose to be born into this life, we get glimpses into our “Birth Vision”, which is an overview of our life purpose as it unfolds with our optimal potential.

Amazing Moments

Posted September 7, 2017

September is here with its cooler nights, shorter days, and the flurry of getting back into autumn routines. As we reflect on our summer holidays, what stands out as special for you? What is that moment of gratitude, uniqueness, and joy that sustains you into the autumn?

One of the highlights for both Steve and I from our August road trip was Elk Island National Park in Alberta. While we were hiking, a bull bison walked down the trail towards us. As

Book Review: “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” By Stephen R. Covey

Posted September 7, 2017

During our road trip, Steve and I listened to numerous audio books. Here is a review of one of them that we discussed and learned from. The audio book was abridged and I’m sure it differs from the 300+ page book that Steve has on his reading list. In summary, the seven habits are:

Be proactive. Take responsibility. Begin with the end in mind. Have a clearly defined purpose and values. Put first things first. Live by your purpose. Be…

The Goddess Group

Posted August 24, 2017

During my Ph.D., I came across a flyer in the University Center for WomanSpirit – a lunch-time gathering where we would discuss a wide range of topics related to feminine spirituality. Over time, some of us stayed connected and evolved into the Goddess Group. I participated in those retreats from 2001 until 2008. Through these, my science brain started coming into balance with my intuitive and creative side. This group of amazing ladies supported my journey through the end of
