There can be no way to prepare for a parents worst nightmare which is to experience the death of your child. On a summer evening almost 22 years ago, August 15, 1995, Avis Ottey was confronted with the indescribable. Returning to her Scarborough home from work, Avis walked into her family sanctuary to find the bloodied bodies of her teenaged daughters, Marsha and Tami. What thought, feeling, action or life is possible after this? Such a journey is not easily understood, unless you have been there in some way yourself. With this said, Rev. Avis is living proof that this journey is possible. She now graciously and powerfully shares aspects of her healing path through grief counselling, coaching and support, and her book: It May Hurt for a While. Through her powerful, compassionate and skilful work, Rev. Avis Ottey now helps those seeking to reconnect with life while journeying through grief.

Mindfulness is a way of life where you are engaged in what you are doing completely, each moment that arises. This engaged lifestyle can be cultivated through formal seated and movement meditation practices and also through less formal momentary practices such as eating, sitting, showering, driving, walking and listening. Have you ever heard the statement - You must be present to win!? That statement could be describing your life. Your life happens right now, it unfolds one moment at a time, and if you are distracted or "not present" emotionally or mentally, you won't have the opportunity to experience your emotions, engage in your relationships, enjoy your hobbies or savor your life. What do you do to practice being present? How do you practice mindfulness meditation? How does it train you for a more mindful life? Join meditation mentor Sarah McLean, a best-selling author and the director of the Meditation Teacher Academy in Sedona, Arizona, and hear her secrets to successful formal meditation, and the practices she suggests for a more mindful life.
"While an entrepreneur creates a business, a zentrepreneur creates a business and a life"- Stuart Avery Gold. To set out the path to becoming a Zentrepreneur is to create your "Ten And Zen Life Map".Several years ago I attended a seminar with the renowned speaker and mentor, Jim Rohn. He asked us all what we did for a living, and the responses ranged from chartered accountant to a radio broadcaster. I was the broadcaster. He then asked us what we liked to do most when we were ten years old. Everyone's face lit up as we went around the room recounting our stories. I recalled that when I was ten my father built a makeshift radio station in our den , with an amplifier and records to spin, records like a real DJ. It was there in my make believe radio station, broadcasting to my mother on a nine inch speaker in the kitchen that I found true happiness. With my Mom as my number one fan, I did indeed find my true passion-broadcasting. Rohn's theory was just this; whatever we loved to do when we were ten years old, was what we would wind up doing at some point in our life. This would become our true passion and our greatest enjoyment. Until that time, we were just doing our jobs.That was so brilliant to me that I now call it "Ten and Zen".So here's the big "Ten and Zen" question for you now: What did you love to do when you were ten years old?.This workshop begins with revisiting your life at the age of about ten years old. Your goal here is to recreate your life since then comparing the highlights with what you liked to do when you were ten. See where your ultimate purpose and your true gifts expressed even when you weren't aware of them then. Find the forks in the road of your life where you went in the wrong direction, so you can start creating your Ten and Zen Life Map from this point forward. You may find that there were certain words that you used to use, a mindset that you used to have or actions that used to make you happy. This process may help you to find a personal alignment with something that used to be familiar to you and you somehow misplaced along the way. Find what made you happy then so you can pull it forward into your life for a more robust expression now.
We all have a choice as to how we approach the challenges in our lives, whether it's gastroparesis or something else. In this live class, Crystal will discuss how she went from an ill, jobless, depressed newlywed in a rocky relationship to a successful author and health counselor with a happy marriage and baby on the way (all while her challenge -- a gastroparesis diagnosis -- remained the same). More importantly, Crystal will share the most important steps you can take toward making a change in your own life regardless of the challenges you're facing.
