Thank you for your ongoing patience as I work things out here. Lots of moving parts! Please contact me, Linda directly if you have any questions.

I help big hearted caregivers make space for themselves so that they can connect, explore and attend to their own changing feelings, needs and interests creating a more aligned and meaningful life.

“Living Aligned” is both a framework and an outcome I wish for you and me. Sometimes we need to re-calibrate our identity, our story, our intention for this next chapter. Our vision and even our values may need to be tweaked and strengthened to meet whatever has shown up. The appropriate support can make all the difference in these moments.

Living Aligned offerings may appeal if you:

♥ want to feel more calm and confident in the face of change & uncertainty

♥ want to feel you are moving forward on your dreams and projects

♥ looking to cultivate a strong and consistent self-care practice

♥ wish that you could make yourself a priority more often

♥ interested in exploring the body – mind – spirit connection


Here are the primary ways I offer creative support:

♥ the arts based self-care practice
♥ workshops and courses
♥ 1:1 coaching

the arts based self-care practice

This practice was developed for big hearted caregivers who want to practice directing some of that caring energy on themselves and check-in with their own feelings and needs.

Using a blend of elements that include aspects of Mindfulness, Focusing, the Expressive Arts and aspects of the Living Aligned framework, this combination of processes gently helps you connect with yourself, your emotional landscape and all parts of your humanness. I have both experienced and witnessed the power of self-awareness, self-connection and self-compassion … and how that power is amplified when we learn and practice them in a community setting. (Yes, even virtually.)

“Linda always has a way about her that is very appealing to me. Light-hearted and playful (offering laughter, pointing out the small things that bring her joy) while at the same time, bringing up a sense that she is quite serious about her approach and is fully there for you.” ~ Mary


For a group of six or more, any workshop or course
can be custom designed and scheduled to suit your needs.

Feel free to contact Linda if you have any questions or suggestions.

I have been offering ‘creative support through times of change’ to teams in organizations and through public workshops here in Rupert for the past 20 years. Over this past year, I have been learning about leading online group possibilities. Besides attending many learning events for myself, I experimented with various offerings of my own: from two-hour pop-up sessions to a weekly drop-in practice, followed by a six-week pilot program in October and November.

This particular program is appropriate for those who are new to my Living Aligned approach as well as those who have joined me on my earlier offerings. This is the next iteration, the learning curve now focused facilitating online and using this learning platform. I hope you will bear with me and the inevitable glitches that are bound to show up.

 

“I appreciated how low-maintenance the experience was. Linda held the group beautifully, gently encouraging participation, sharing her personal examples and stories to help illuminate ‘lessons’ and keep the energy flowing. I think Linda’s leadership helped create a real atmosphere of kindness and inclusion (or perhaps those were just the type of folks to show up). Linda is deeply sincere in her desire to support others in exploring and understanding themselves better. I felt respected, honoured, reassured/validated by Linda’s facilitation and the content she chose to share with us.” ~ Debbie



I design and facilitate customized workshops and courses on a variety of topics
related to personal, leadership and team development.

These can be scheduled at the convenience of you or your team.
