To our valued community,
During these uncertain times, support is so important: the more diverse and varied our support network, the more resilient we are. Let's remember then, that we are in this together.
Before you come by for your next onsite session, please take a look at our most up-to-date protocols and resources here:
Whether you have symptoms or not, remember that you are not alone. Our Members are working diligently to respond to this situation, creating a number of resources and services to help you and your loved ones thrive. If there is a time to reach out and learn new tools to help you be the best you can be, it is now. Our Members remain committed to supporting our communities, and have arranged to offer a wide range of one-on-one sessions, peer support groups, and healing sessions virtually, by zoom, email, or phone.
We continue to offer our "How We Heal": a free online panel discussion series to offer tips and tools to help all of us work through some of the more difficult experiences of fear, depression, anxiety, etc.
If there's something in particular that you are looking for, don't hesitate to reach out by emailing me directly at email@example.com and I'd be more than happy to direct you. And, if you are able to support us in raising funds to go towards our rental situation, please donate at distantly.ca/inner-arts-collective.
In Gratitude and Abundance,

Nature Getaways at the Rosseau Sanctuary
The Inner Arts Collective coordinates a gorgeous retreat space in the Muskokas, with getaways across the seasons. With over 50 acres and a number of eco-healing installations (labyrinth, sweatlodge, riverside meditation tent, private off-grid cabins, gardens, etc), we have a little something for everybody to unplug, replenish, and reconnect with the healing wisdom of the earth.
WE ENCOURAGE YOU CONTACT THE FACILITATOR DIRECTLY IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT HOW RETREATS WILL OPERATE WHILE RESPECTING SOCIAL DISTANCING.
Workshops, Circles, and Meditation Events
The Inner Arts Collective is a venue for a wide range of workshops, ceremonies, networking events and retreats. Some examples include Lori Lytle's monthly Tarot Circle, the monthly Circle of Hope Shamanic Drumming Circle with Michele Meehan, monthly Women's networking cafe's, full moon circles, and the seasonal Mystic Pop-Ups with readers and artisans from across the GTA.
