The Lab of Meditation: A 200 hour meditation teacher training

A successful completion of the 200-hour Teacher Training will provide you with a certification of completion as a Lab of Meditation Mindfulness Teacher.  Join your guide, Hiroko Demicheles, and other beautiful souls for an intensive mindful journey focused on personal inquiry, science, biofeedback, and social justice.

Part one of this journey consists of 15-weeks of immersive evenings (Tuesdays, 6 pm – 9:30 pm) plus a non-residential weekend retreat.

The Lab of Meditation Teacher Training Program is laboratory-like exploration, in which we will explore our inner life and its effects on our bodies, brains, minds, and spirit.

In the Lab, through mindful practice, we will become curious scientists, as we observe emotions, with curiosity and without judgment. Objectively, like in a lab.

The Lab’s Meditation Teacher Training is an intensive 3-month program, aiming to provide you with the necessary understanding, training, mentoring, and practical experience to invite mindfulness into your life, as a practitioner or as a guide and teacher for others.  

This program is perfect for individuals wanting to build their personal practice, or for businesses and mindfully-oriented organizations wanting to feel competent and congruent in the practice of mindfulness, meditation and in life, overall.

Breathwork with Bree: Create Expansion

Breathwork with Bree: Create Expansion

This is a practice we, at Werklab, stand by. We believe that all humans, and more specifically ones who are seeking clarity and internal alignment, will be positively impacted by the expansive experience of breathwork. Leading in our businesses takes vision. Where we're going (whether it be independently or leading a team and where we're taking our business) requires clarity, and the power of breathwork is to break through blocks that might be impacting our ability to get clear.

Experience the two stage paranayama healing meditation technique; a focused breathing meditation to remove emotional, mental and physical blockages. This transformational breathing meditation is known to reduce stress, gain mental clarity, heal physical issues and illuminate intuitive insight for personal transformation.

"Studies are revealing that, by changing the patterns of breathing, it is possible to restore balance to the stress response systems, calm an agitated mind, relieve symptoms of anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), improve physical health and endurance, elevate performance, and enhance relationships." - Well+Good Magazine

Bree Melanson, Spiritual Medium will be leading us through intention setting and guiding us through the breathwork session focused on creating balance, total well-being and personal clarity. Although each breathwork session is unique and individual, you will generally feel empowered, relieved, relaxed and rejuvenated.

Please note that there are two classes on March 24th: one begins at 4pm the other at 7pm, be sure to click the correct time on the eventbrite page.

Self Care Not Sick Care w. Therapist and Author Ailey Jolie

We live in a culture obsessed with health and wellness but many of these framed “self-care” practices are only reinforcing “sick-care”. One in five women struggle with a form of disordered eating and approximately only one out of twenty women ever receive help. Our culture is disordered around food and body, it’s impossible for anyone man, woman or non-binary folk to be immune.

A lack of awareness around disordered eating in combination with diet cultures infiltration of the wellness sphere has created an epidemic of disordered eating masquerading as “self-care”.

Spend an evening exploring the most #hashtagable wellness trends from the lens of an eating disorder specialist. From colonics to ketogenics - no topic is too taboo. With self-compassion as an ally, together we will explore where self-care has become sick-care and how you can cultivate your own inner skeptic to settle into a self-care setup that is authentic to you and allows you to find the nourishment that allowsyou to fully flourish.

Topics to be reviewed:

What the Hell is Wellness

- Living in a Disordered Culture

- What Patriarchy Has To Do With It

- The Wellness “Criminals”

- A socially acceptable way to avoid eating? Intermittent Fasting

The Signals of Self-Care Being Sick-Care

Bypassing Spiritual Bypassing

Spiritual Bypassing is the use of spiritual practices and beliefs to avoid dealing with our painful feelings,
unresolved wounds, and developmental needs. spirituality, when used appropriately, can inspire more
compassionate living but it can also be used to deny and when this happens it negates consequence.
this workshop is an exploration of identifying when spiritual practices and attitudes distort reality and
shift accountability. using eastern and western psychologies individual emphasis on compassion and
consequence together we will explore the middle ground of acceptance.

The Ritual: Full Moon Spring Equinox

Not only do we have the Full moon but also the Spring Equinox. Both events happening on March 20th. The energy is SO powerful at this time and we are going to work with this incredible energy to foster a major up-leveling in our lives. 

Spring equinox is an incredible time that marks the beginning of new light and life. This is the BEST time to focus on new projects, plant new seeds, clear things that no longer serve you (energetically, emotionally & physically) and find the right balance in your life. This is a very important time to get crystal clear on your upcoming goals, projects and what you are calling into your life. 

We are going to leverage all of the power and meaning of both the spring equinox and the full moon and experience some major clarity, clearing & intention setting together.

This is a time to really celebrate the LIGHT and let it pour right in and we are going to make sure to do exactly that! 

What you’ll get out of it 

☾ Reiki healing to clear OLD energy and UPLEVEL yourself to new beginnings 

☾ Powerful manifesting module to plant new seeds!

☾ Clear emotional blocks

☾ Raise your vibration to manifest more powerfully! 

☾ Relieve stress & anxiety 

☾ Clear toxins & boost your immune system 

☾ Up your manifesting game! 

☾ Self reflection questions to do some deep work

☾ Time to share & connect with your beautiful community 

What to bring 

- your favourite crystal 

- journal + pen 

- layer, blanket or eye mask if you love cozying up during the reiki experience 

The Full Moon is a special time to honour a ritual. Join Giulia of Brazen Soul Rebelion every month as she guides us to release and welcome according to what astrological energy is in the universe. We are creating a beautiful space to clear, heal, manifest and dance. This is a powerful opportunity to come together as a community and build a ceremony around expansion and togetherness.

Every(body) is Beautiful Exclusive Screening and Guided Workshop with Monica Elena

Join Monica Elena, holistic nutritionist and owner of @HolisticHeels, for an exclusive screening of The Illusionists, a documentary exposing how media saturates our lives with images of unattainable beauty and “perfection”, fueling insecurity and constant self-criticism. Post screening, there will be a guided workshop where you will learn the tools to stop the comparison game, find acceptance within yourself, and radiate beauty internally and externally.

All attendees will receive a $60 gift bag containing a Five Minute Journal and other goodies to honour your body.

About Monica Elena: I'm a former international fashion model turned holistic nutritional practitioner and owner of Holistic Heels. I strongly believe that health is much more than the absence of disease; true health exists when nutrition is combined with authentic self-love. I had been modeling for over eight years and the passion and excitement I once had for my career was dwindling, as was my self-esteem. I was so fixated on my external body that I wasn’t giving my internal workings any love or attention. I delved into an eye-opening journey in holistic nutrition where I gained an invaluable understanding of what true health actually looked and felt like. The nutritional knowledge allowed for physical healing, but better yet, the authentic self-love allowed for a complete shift in mindset. I began listening to my body and making food decisions based on vitality and nourishment rather than body image alone. During this tremendous period of self-realization and a regain of passion and purpose, I absolutely knew that I needed to share my knowledge with others -- particularly after having met numerous individuals who had similar yet undeniably taboo struggles with food and body image but were lacking the continuous guidance to help overcome these blocks in life. It was then that Holistic Heels came to fruition.

IWD 2019: An Evening of Honouring w. Blume

IWD 2019: An Evening of Honouring w. Blume

In “honour” of International Women’s Day, we've chosen to come together to appreciate our collective infinite power when we honour the beauty of our fullness, our wholeness, and that we have everything we need within us to celebrate with love.

Through the lens of the 5 love languages, we'll look inward to ourselves. The 5 love languages are normally understood to improve your relationships with others. Let’s, instead, dial it back to the most important relationship: the relationship to Self. How can we honour the Self, by getting in touch with how we each, individually receive love?

Supported by Blume + Werklab, we’re proud to announce our lineup of contributors Jessica Robson, Vivien Hsuing, Anita Cheung, Bettina Khan, Dora Kamau, Ailey Jolie, Lauren Boswell + Liz Hammond. Emma MacDonald 

We’ll find new ways and perspectives to honour ourselves, by understanding how we each love to receive love and putting that into action. This is self-care going way up. An Evening of Honouring is to hold space for that. Honour yourself. The boldest disruptions happen through love.

A New Moon Circle: with Alexandra D'amour founder of On Our Moon

Join ON OUR MOON’s Alexandra D’amour for a night of guided meditation, journaling and powerful intention setting. We will use the rebirth energy of the new moon and the dreamy, intuitive Pisces spirit to dream big and become crystal clear on what we’re ready to ask for. 

What are you too afraid to ask for? How can you fiercely embrace your intuition to release any self-sabotaging behaviors? How can you step into yourself with more self-love and self-compassion? How can you set aside self-doubt to step into your purpose wholeheartedly?

These are some of the questions we will ask ourselves during this new moon. We will focus on healing and forgiving ourselves in order to elevate our consciousness and step into our purpose. In this safe circle, we will pause and reflect on what’s working (and what’s not), share our stories and create powerful intentions around honoring our big dreams without apology. 


What you’ll get out of it:

-guided meditation 

-reconnection with your intuition and dreams

-find more clarity about your creative and spiritual pursuits

-learn to embrace your story and experiences

-opportunity to share and connect deeply with like-minded souls

-powerful intention setting 

What to bring:

-a journal and pen

The Trauma of Money: Breaking up with money narratives that are holding you back in business and in life.
Feb

6:30 PM18:30

The Trauma of Money: Breaking up with money narratives that are holding you back in business and in life.

Why do we incur in the same patterns? Why do we overspend? Why do we under charge? Why do we feel nervous about quoting our rates? Why do we accumulate debt? Why are we unable to save?  Why do we spend money we don’t have?

In this comprehensive session, Mindful Money expert, Chantel Chapman and Psychotherapist Hiroko Demichelis will come together, combining their perspective on financial distress, psychological trauma, and how to dissolve money blocks inhibiting your prosperity.

 Trauma contributes writing scripts, embedded into our nervous system, that leads us to different painful money narratives and disruptive behaviors. Without healing our relationship with the past, understanding the consumerism landscape that also influences us and changing the unhelpful scripts, financial strategies will only help superficially.

We will cover the following topics:

·       Recognizing the different types of energetic blocks that we experience with our money

·       How the brain works with trauma

·       Money narratives, self-exploration

·       Tools for healing and stepping into your deserving power 

·       Cashflow Hacks

·       Meditation

Almost 30: Talking all things purpose

Purpose. Sometimes figuring out your purpose is overwhelming and can be an anxiety-inducing topic. 

Sometimes you undoubtedly know your purpose but are needing clarity around direction or how to monetize it. Sometimes figuring out your purpose means you have to address your worth and value in the world and that alone can feel terrifying.

Whatever your feelings about your purpose may be, let's talk about it. That's what this evening is about: talking all things purpose.

What you'll get out of the evening with Almost 30:
- An in-depth look into Krista's and Lindsey's personal journeys
- Clarity on your life's vision through writing + meditation

The Wheel Part 2: Dream A New

THE WHEEL AT WERKLAB – Soulfully Moving Through The Seasons

Inspired by the Solar Wheel of the Year, The Wheel is an opportunity to take part in the ancient and universally recognized tradition of following the seasonal cycle. This series will help guide you in harnessing the unique, shifting energy patterns of the seasons into the present moment.

Each two hour gathering will include sharing on seasonal attunement, followed by an auric cleansing, yoga movement and breath-work, plant medicine, sound healing, and finally ending with suggested seasonally inspired rituals to practise at home. 

Each gathering will be co-led by Chantal Russell, registered holistic nutritionist and yoga director of The Well on Bowen, and Mimi Young, shamanic medicine teacher and ritualist of Ceremonie.
