May 5 | Present Child Method – An Experiential 1-Day Workshop with Susan Drury

Our children are like apples growing on our tree. On a certain level, their stumbling blocks are our stumbling blocks. Their “problems” offer us a powerful mirror – but until we can see the deeper message behind what they are reflecting, we are unable to access the opportunities to heal ourselves and free them from their suffering. This 1-day workshop will open your eyes and your heart to the deep connections and healing potentials between you and your child, so you can both move forward in greater harmony and fulfilment.

(Present Child Method was created by Dutch homeopath Janita Venema and has been part of the health care system in The Netherlands for the past 15 years. Susan Drury, CHS, CHC, is a classical homeopath, Waldorf Alumnus parent and certified Present Child Translator)

May 26 | Preventing Childhood Disease – Expanding Your Options

Vaccination according to a set schedule is the only option the Canadian medical system offers families in preventing serious childhood disease in their children – and yet the vaccination program is not without risk. This 3-hour seminar will explore a wider range of options for disease protection and supply parents with resources for their own further research. For families choosing to vaccinate, safer protocols and supplements to protect against vaccination damage will be discussed. For families choosing not to vaccinate, a homeopathic method to strengthen their child’s immune system and educate them against specific diseases will be explored.
