Thank you for your patience as I workout how to set up this next round of offerings, the accompanying registration links and work with this website theme. Please contact Linda directly if you have any questions.
I help compassionate caregivers connect with themselves so that they make time for their own needs and creative interests too.
“Living Aligned” is both my framework and the outcome I wish for you and me. Sometimes we need to recalibrate 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.
You might find my offerings helpful and appealing if you are:
♥ wanting to feel more calm and confident in the face of uncertainty
♥ wanting to feel less stuck or like you are spinning
♥ wishing that you could make yourself a priority more often
♥ looking to cultivate a strong and consistent self-care practice
♥ like exploring the body – mind connection
There are three primary ways I offer creative support:
♥ the arts based self care practice
♥ Living Aligned workshops and courses
♥ 1:1 coaching packages
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.)

I’m slowly getting back to writing my BLOG too.
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
This series wrapped up on December 12 and 13, 2021.
Thanks to all who engaged in the process and offered feedback. I am tweaking the next iteration for early in January.
I offer 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. Contact me to learn more!
