Business Member Spotlight of Mimi Thorp by Tom Kernaghan

Image

Seven years ago, Mimi Thorp listened to what her body was saying to her, and then went into action. After receiving BodyTalk sessions that profoundly improved her physical and emotional well-being, she decided to jump in and become a certified practitioner. A powerful modality, the BodyTalk System focuses on the “big picture” of holistic health and the body’s innate wisdom, intuition, and ability to heal itself when its energies are balanced.

Grounded in Western principles of kinesiology and traditional Chinese medicine, this gentle, integrative system treats the individual as a complete and complex system in which the mind, body, and soul must be in alignment in order to reach not only full health but also the fullest potential in life.

Transform, design or revitalize your relationships. Working together I can help you identify how each of you is “wired”, because how you’re wired determines your communication style.

Art. Why? – Cherie Hanson

Image

I have come to realize I have a relationship with art and with cultural events that is central to my sense of well being. As I do in all relationships, I step back and analyze the dynamic with a curious mind.
 
What I seek from art is a transformation of self. I stand before a painter that was looking at his concept reality in 1400 and I feel as if I have stepped into his very mind. This was the world he inhabited; these were the beauties of mundanity that surrounded him. What appears on the canvas are the objects limiting and expanding his very sense of his own humanity. And it deepens my understanding of what it means to be mortal beyond the boundaries of my own culture, current normative habits and constructs.

Change Happens when we Connect – Hilary Davies & Dirk Terpstra

Image

The OKANAGAN is Head Quarters for Coherence Hotspot.   We are all familiar with the wifi symbol connecting all of us to the internet.  The Coherence Hotspot symbol is a revolutionary concept connecting all of us in a heart centred and impactful way.

Research has proven that our emotional state directly influences our experience in life, as well as our worldview, and the lens in which we view others. This affects each decision we make and the quality of life we have. Could it mean then, that when we collectively change our emotional state, life as we know will change? Pretty close, and understanding the science in this process is just the beginning.

At Home in the Valley of Stories – Oak Writer

Image

– originally released on July 14, 2016
You never really know someone’s story — that is, until they have the courage to stand in a room of strangers, wrestle with fear, and turn the visceral into the verbal.

Such is the remarkable human spirit I witnessed last month at 97 Street Pub when I attended the fourth monthly Storytelling Tuesday (STT), hosted by Balance Well-Being Centre Inc. (BWB), a Kelowna organization of passionate individuals deeply committed, as the name suggests, to balance among four of life’s pillars of well-being: financial, social, mind, and body.
