Twice each year with change of season from Winter to Spring, and from Summer to fall, the ancient vedics have taught us to pause, and create space for digestion of all that has come to be, and all that is still to come.
Members (past members included!) of the Habits of the Real You program are invited to join us Saturday June 15th, 2019, for another wonderful foraging walk with Flora McLeod.
Did you know, there are over 250,000 edible plant species on the planet, yet the average north american regularly eats less than 20?
Experience the bounty of edibles right here in your backyard. Experience flavors that our culture is missing out on (because salty & sweet aren't it!)
Flora will take us on an informative walk, before we find a shady space to sample a number of locally foraged delights.
Not a member? It's not too late to join the tribe. Head to www.thehabit.net/contact and set up a call today. Join us!

This workshop is limited to Habit tribe members only (Join the Tribe)
The new Year is a powerful time to plant seeds of new intention, yet studies show that most people stray from their New Year’s resolutions shortly after setting them:
“By the first week, 27% of us abandon our goals. At the two-week mark, 31% of people quit, and just over half of us make it to the one-month mark.”
One of the reasons our best intentions don’t stick is that we don’t keep them top of mind. The Habit crew has seen a ton of success in creating healthy habits that last thanks to creative reminders placed in our environment.
So this January we’ll be gathering to get creative around our intentions for 2019 and beyond, with a Vision Board workshop.
Visualization is one of the most powerful tools that is available in everyone’s arsenal to achieve great success in life. And the use of a vision board has been scientifically proven to be able to increase the activity of visualization through our minds. When we look at the pictures of the things that we want, we imagine the achievements, the enjoyment and the fulfillment we get from them, which sparks and re-sparks our motivation to get after our big beautiful goals.
DATE: January 11th, 2019
LOCATION: 128 Millard Pl Kelowna
COST: $15 - FREE for current Habit tribe members
Includes all the supplies to create your own 12 x 12 vision board (do bring your own imagery if you have some you want to use but there will be lots of options available here too)

I’ve teamed up with Yoga of Money coach Grace Edison to create a workshop where we get crystal clear on our values in this life, and then peel back the layers on how our money story shows up in or out of alignment with those values.
Grace has some AWESOME tools for creating an abundance mindset, and side-stepping old patterns of emotional spending, penny pinching, lack mentality and more.
So looking forward to this class!
For Current Habit tribe members only. Want to get in on the next one? Contact me.
The Habit tribe gathers each December to get clear on our values, set some intentions around our holiday spending habits, and ensuring our purchases and gifts align with our purpose (yay for gifts of growth!)
So in that vein, I'm hosting a mala making workshop!
We'll chat about the traditions behind malas, and how to use them in your mindfulness practice, plus
You'll learn simple techniques for using stones to ground you.
You'll come away with 2 mala bracelets - one to gift, one to keep... or both for you (I won't tell).
I'll have printed descriptions of the stones we use, so you can create a bracelet that reflects who you're becoming next. <3
