  • An Evening of Nurturing Spirit - College Prep Anxiety @ 6:00 PM

    College Preparation – Helping your child overcome anxiety with Deepak Sharma.

    In overcoming anxiety, there is a major difference in the quality of life when you shift from "REACTING" to life to "RESPONDING" to life.

    Parents will walk away understanding the following,
    * The Neuroscience of how ANXIETY is physically CREATED in your child and HOW TO IDENTIFY it.
    * The major outside FACTORS that are CAUSING your teen's ANXIETY. The LIMITATIONS and OUTCOMES that anxiety CREATES within teens.
    * How to SHIFT their ENERGY to OVERCOME anxiety.

    "ONLY WHEN TEENS BELEIVE THAT THEIR FUTURE WILL BE BRIGHT BECAUSE THEY ARE CAPABLE OF CREATING IT, WILL WE BEAT THE ANXIETY EPIDEMIC IN OUR YOUTH."
    - Deepak Sharma Volition Academy
    - www.VolitionAcademy.com

    In this time of physical distancing and social isolation, Creating Connection Vancouver invites you for an hour or so of meaningful community to help pick you up in the middle of the week and to learn a little bit about how to care for ourselves from home.

    PRESENTER BIO:
    "Today, I'm a professional coach but I wasn't always. I was a senior operations executive who had driven rapid change to improve business profitability. Throughout my corporate career, I stepped into challenging roles and assessed operational performance, developed process improvements, created teams, and implemented the action plans to attain the needed business results."

    "I managed Operational Excellence at an $18MM organization up to an $850MM organization, and what I had found was that whether at a small or large company, driving people to their best comes down to one thing. That one thing is what launched my life off on a trajectory I could have never imagined. That one thing is understanding who you are at the core and how to influence this so that you can become who you need to be. This is the key that allows people to accomplish everything required to create success and their dream life."

    "On my journey to realize my own true capabilities, I found clarity in my passion, which is to coach and mentor young adults so that they transition to become adults powerfully by creating unshakeable confidence so they can create an extraordinary life without the needless suffering and struggles that I (and most likely you) experienced at their age."

    SESSION FORMAT
    - Welcome and Introductions
    - Opening Meditation
    - Guest Speaker followed by Q&A
    - Closing Meditation

    Join in an inspiring and informational conversation with others who are going through the same emotions as you, and who crave the same uplifting support.

    Everyone and your questions are welcome here.

  • A Course in Miracles Discussion Group @ 7:00 PM EST (CAN/US)

    Would you like to feel peaceful even in difficult circumstances? Would you like to feel more connected to your Source?

    In this online discussion we delve into how A Course in Miracles can enhance our spiritual journey and teach us peace in the midst of chaos.

    ABOUT A COURSE IN MIRACLES
    “It..aims...at removing the blocks to the awareness of love's presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all encompassing can have no opposite.

    This Course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way:
    Nothing real can be threatened.
    Nothing unreal exists.
    Herein lies the peace of God.” (T-In.1:7-8,2:1-4)

    A Course In Miracles (ACIM) is a unique spiritual self-study program designed to awaken us to the truth of our oneness with God and Love. It teaches that the way to universal love and peace—or remembering God—is by undoing guilt through forgiving others.

    The Course thus focuses on the healing of relationships and making them holy. ACIM also emphasizes that it is but one version of the universal curriculum, of which there are “many thousands.”

    The language of the Course is of traditional Christianity while it expresses a non-sectarian, non-denominational spirituality. ACIM is a universal spiritual teaching, not a religion.

    Access course material here: https://acim.org/workbook-lessons-overview/workbook-table-of-contents/

    Hosted by AWAKENING SPIRITUALITY, an online community of seekers interested in personal development and spiritual exploration. www.awakeningspirituality.ca.

  • Vinyasa Yoga Flow @ 8 PM

    Online event

    Create space in your week for some “you time” - Get out of your head and into your body!

    You are invited to attend our weekly Vinyasa Yoga Flow with Danica Beth, our certified instructor, and connect live with her on-line from the comfort of your own space.

    In this class you will coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next (e.g. from Chaturanga to Upward-Facing Dog to Downward-Facing Dog, etc.​)​

    Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned yogi, all skill and experience levels are welcome and accommodated. Please consider having a water bottle on hand and, if interested, a notebook and pen to journal some reflective notes in.

    Don't forget to connect 10-15 minutes ahead of time to check your set-up and sound levels (but please be aware the session may be locked at 8:40 pm for security reasons).

    We can't wait to share in this practice with you!

    CREATING CONNECTION CANADA is a network of welcoming and inclusive communities committed to sharing in authentic conversation, promoting meaningful activities and fostering holistic wellness practices.

    People of every walk of life, culture, faith or tradition, participate in a myriad of connection groups, forming meaningful community within the reality of this welcomed diversity. As a result of this inclusive outlook, these communities are multi-faceted - expressing the inspirations, aspirations, wisdom, practices and blessing of all.

    By embodying the principle of unity in diversity, we discover that dialogue is enriched by individuals with different backgrounds and experiences - and even by viewpoints which are contrary. By building relationships of trust, we can facilitate inner peace and meaningful conversations in our inclusive communities. We are LGBTQ+ affirming.
