Body Soul & Spirit Expo – February 2 – 4, 2018 At The Croatian Cultural Centre

22 Jan

Spiritual-OceanIt’s the New Year and for many people resolutions are top of mind. Whether you are thinking to learn something or experience something new, or tackle a project at long last maybe taking and/or making some time for self-care. The term self care we’ve noticed has magically been given the green light meaning it’s ok to look after yourself as it should. When you look after yourself, you are a happier more productive person for it. So we think it fitting we let you know about The Body Soul & Spirit Expo being held at the Croatian Cultural Centre starting February 2nd.  The show is billed as a “Holistic, New Thought and Spiritual Lifestyle Expo, that showcases products, services and resources for growth, and fosters the individual quest for wholeness, health and self understanding.”   Organizers have been producing this show for 20 years in cities across Canada. The aim is help you be happier, healthier and connect you with other positively focused individuals.  The expo features a number of lectures and workshops throughout the weekend starting on Friday February 2nd. Some lectures are part of the cost of admission, others have an added cost and require registration. Jeffrey Armstrong kicks things off on Friday afternoon discussing Ayurvedic Dosha (body types), followed by a workshop by Lynn Andrews Living Life Intentionally. A variety of workshops continue throughout the weekend including Donna Fairhurst presenting one Psychic’s Journey, Della Resdie with Cellular Consciousness Healing and Debra Metzker Meehl with Joyful Transformation.   You can purchase tickets for The Body Soul & Spirit Expo in advance online for $15 if you plan to attend 1 day, or $35 gets you admission over all 3 days.  If you prefer last minute, you can purchase a ticket at the door for $20.
