In celebration of Mother’s Day, 100% of proceeds for this workshop went to Sistering.org, a multi-service agency aimed at supporting women in Toronto facing poverty, marginalization, and homelessness. Women at sistering are battling a range of difficulties including mental health problems, substance abuse, run-ins with the criminal justice system, lack of access due to immigrant/refugee status, and more. At Sistering, a small team of women work tirelessly to offer a 24/7 drop-in, that provides shelter, hot meals, crisis intervention, harm reduction, and trauma-informed counselling services. They also make referrals for housing, health, and legal and immigration services.
This workshop took place on Wednesday, May 9th 7-9pm at 165 Geary Ave, unit 2.

Melissa Andre Blooms
Kay Ghajar (@kayghajar) has been practicing yoga for almost 10 years. She began exploring different styles of yoga after taking courses in positive psychology, which informed on the benefits of yoga and meditation. After a traumatic life event in university and failed progression through traditional counselling, she started practicing yoga and keeping a gratitude jar, which began her healing process and changed her outlook on life.
Kay received her 200-hour teaching certificate at Power Yoga Canada and will lead us through an amazing Power Yoga session. Her detailed, descriptive instruction and high energy makes the class exciting, comprehendible and achievable for the women in the class who are all at different levels.
I am also thrilled to have my sister Meagan Wilson speak to us at this workshop! As she is an eminent inspiration and role model in my life, I am thrilled to have you all hear my sister speak to us about “Connecting with your core values”.
Meagan is a Mama to 4 beautiful souls: North, Indigo, Juniper and Sage and loving wife to Brad. After living ten years in Sydney, Australia she just recently took flight and put down new roots in the Canadian countryside just outside of Toronto. She received a BA from McGill University, taught TESOL to young children in South Korea and after the birth of her first child began researching and studying play-based learning, natural parenting and early childhood education from a Waldorf perspective.
After she received her Foundations in Rudolf Steiner Education she founded her business Whole Family Rhythms (wholefamilyrhythms.com). A virtual online community that provides mothers and carers resources, information and courses on conscious connected parenting that is aligned with their unique family values. Meagan is also a Simplicity Parenting Family Life Coach (wholefamilyrhythms.com/work-with-Meagan) and helps Mamas and parents with the early childhood challenges they may be experiencing.
