I listen intently, the phone hot against my cheekbone, as he revisits key details of his fascinating and nomadic life. Shawn is clearly a man who has lived and learned through some tribulations I have not. Beneath the fluidity of his words lies a calm confidence produced by years of fortifying fights and realized visions.

Growing up with traditional learning challenges, Shawn crashed against the limiting and stigmatizing mold of mainstream education. He was a teenage father. He has travelled the world in search of opportunities. And he has spent years challenging the conventional thinking of a school system for which I, by mere chance, was fairly well suited. Seemingly, we come from different worlds. And yet I can sense a fundamental connection — something in his intention. His voice compels me to find it.

“We are all storytellers. The problem is, most of us aren’t very good at it. The school system encourages and rewards only one way of learning, and it prepares us for a workplace devoid of individuality and full of vacuous clichés. We have lost our way in the world. Stories bring the human being back into focus and help us remember what is important. By expressing our true selves, we connect with others and inspire each other to act toward unifying goals — whether team building, convincing your kids cooperate, wooing a date, or building a more respectful and responsible society. But there is a structure to consistently good and persuasive storytelling.”

'Irie'??? by Maralee Webber

This is a question I get a lot as most people don't know how to pronounce it, let alone what it means

My favorite definition of Irie (pronounced 'eye.ree',) is- 'excellent or a state of wellbeing'.

I named my business Irie Wellness because the island of Jamaica has become like a second home to me. We have gone yearly (except 2021) for about 12 years.

Think back to a time where you were utterly & completely at peace. No worries, no stress, just beautiful scenery, incredible people & a sense of everything being right in your world.

That is Jamaica....for me, and that is how I want my clients to feel when they work with me.

OUR PHILOSOPHY by Crystal Jensen


• Children learn better when they are in a relaxed state, calm and regulated.

• Practicing mindfulness helps children better manage stress and anxiety,
and creates tools for them to carry with them as they grow moving into a lifestyle.

• This promotes an environment where children can fully understand how to process their emotions in a healthy way,
reducing the impact of stress and anxiety often resulting in mental health difficulties.


• Children achieve greater academic, social and emotional success by learning through play.

• During play children learn about themselves and their surroundings around them.

• Play allows children to explore and test their own limits at the same time as build confidence, social and cognitive skills.

• We incorporate play throughout our entire day, and we have fun!

Spending the last 8 years of my life deep diving into restoring my own body, mind and spirit into balance, I have witnessed the huge benefit not just for myself, but the benefit it has had for my kids and family. While offering them bits and pieces of my practice in order to help them manage their own stresses, I began to realize that there was a need to be filled in offering them their own practice in a simple and easy way.

As a mom of 4 + 2 kids, I know firsthand, how important it is to equip our kids and families with these time honoured wisdoms and techniques, in conjunction with science based research.
