Guided Meditations with Chad Cornell - Thursdays - Starting January 30th at 6:15 please email for details: [email protected]

Chad Cornell teaches a specific kind of meditation he calls Jyoti.  It is a culmination of many years of study with various teachers of a variety different backgrounds.  This style of meditation is designed for realizing inner calm, clarity, and a feeling of well being.  Ultimately, it is designed for healing and rejuvenation, but it also develops an inner sanctuary of calm in the storm of life.   Jyoti is a mind body therapy especially designed to provide deep healing experiences for virtually anyone who engages in the process.

This is not simply "a calm your mind and body" meditation - it is also a method of breaking through and transforming inner patterns of resistance and emotional baggage that are not serving us as we head towards our greater potential.  Essentially Jyoti (which means inner radiance) helps us connect to our own true nature - which is peaceful, ease-ful, and joyfully compassion and wise.  Jyoti, though carrying many "bare bones" aspects of traditional meditation, is a kind of nature "attune-ment" which utilizes plants, oils, and key healing sounds along with a guided visualization process.  

Whether it be anxiety, or despair, confusion or chronic negativity and resentment - the Jyoti ~ Heart Space Meditation is a great ally towards accessing inner peace, clarity, and happiness.  It's recommended that your first session is in private and booked through Hollow Reed Holistic.  Starting early in the new year there will be group sessions available.

Please email chad at [email protected] if you would like to explore this timeless yet unique healing method.

Taiji / Tai Chi with Susan Nash - Wednesday Mornings at 10:15

A write up from Susan...

I have been a pratitioner of taiji for 30 years, qigong for 24 years, and practiced Kung fu 4 times a week for 5 years.  I have attended an Internal Martial Arts Retreat in Vancouver every year for the past 16 years being taught by Grandmaster Shouyu Liang.  I have attended many workshops given by masters from Canada, U.S. and China.  I attended the 2006 International Taiji Forum and performed Wu Style Taiji, being assessed by Master Eddie Wu, the head of the Wu Family Taiji, and received a certificate and his blessing to continue to teach taiji.

Some of the forms I practice are Circular Wu Taiji, 13 Posture Taiji, 42 Combined Competition Style Taiji, Liuhebafa, Wuji, 12 Animals, 32 & 42 Sword.

I have taught many places in the city, such as, Workers Compensation Board, Culture Heritage Tourism & Sport Manitoba, St. James Assiniboia Health & Social Services, Pembina Trails School Division, Villa Heidelberg, Asian Meditative Traditions Workshop, Sturgeon Creek II, Shaftsbury Park Retirement Residence, Brooklands Community Centre, Robert A. Steen CC, St. Joseph's Residence, staff wellness days at different locations, and of course many other locations.

I have performed for Chinese New Year and Autumn Moon Festivals for Age & Opportunity Centre for the past 16 years.

I continue to study with visiting masters of different internal martial arts forms when the opportunity arises.

My journey in taiji began in Montreal.  I had been participating in various exercise routines, aerobics, jazz Ballet and without warning, suddenly was stricken with pneumonia which developed into chronic fatigue syndrome and for a whole year I was unable to do anything except care for my young children and do only basic chores, being so very, very tired all the time.  After a year I decided I wanted to try dancing again so I went to a class and I could not keep up physically.  A lady there told me they were teaching taiji in the same place.  So, I decided to try it because I wanted to use my brain as well (as in the dancing) and not just jump about as in aerobics.

The taiji was taught in French and I was not bilingual but understood some of the terms so I had to pay particular attention to what was being done and not what was being said.  I think this helped me learn "how to learn" taiji movements.  The taiji eventually restored my health and energy and I have been a practitioner ever since.

I highly recomment taiji to anyone and everyone who wants to improve their balance, co-ordination, concentration, flexibility, endurance, bone density, blood pressure.
Over time, with practice, taiji will relieve stress from body and mind while changing your mindset to be more tolerant, resilient and forgiving.

Taiji is challenging to learn but so rewarding when you finally master some of the movements.  The learning is ongoing as the more you practice, the more your body changes which in turn changes how you are able to perform the movements, like a never ending circle of taiji learning.  Taiji teaches you "how to learn".

Circular Wu Taiji is more internal, with small, natural stepping which allows you to focus on your internal energy centre (the dantian) where all movement begins thereby allowing more control of your taiji space as well as feeling the connection with the ground which gives power ad strength to each movement.

Event Description:

Sound is becoming increasingly important and re-recognized as an essential catalyst for transformational healing. These sound healing sessions will create and provide a 40-45 minute healing “soundscape” for participants, led by Daniel Hollenberg, PhD, Integrative Health Coach and Sound Healer. A variety of instruments will be played “live”, including Australian didgeridoo, to create a lasting, vibrational sound effect centering on the age-old sound of the drone. Participants are asked to bring a Yoga mat, blanket and/or pillow (as needed) to relax into a comfortable sitting/lying position. Benefits of sound healing include increased relaxation, better sleep, enhanced mood and memory, lower stress, reduced physical pain and enhanced immune system. Intuitive personal insights are also possible during soundscapes. Each session will last approximately 40-45 minutes, and will vary slightly between sessions, including the addition of guest sound practitioners. Tea will be available after each session.

Celebration Day for Girls

Is a special day for mothers (or female caregivers) and daughters, ages 10 - 12 years old, to celebrate the significant threshold of puberty and menarche (a girls first period). This workshop prepares you and your daughter with positive information, fun activities and supportive discussion around menstruation.

The workshops format includes 2 sessions:

Mothers Session - During this session,  we will go through the content of the workshop and offer Mothers the chance to express their hopes and wishes for the celebration day and ask questions. This session will be held IN APRIL, 2020 from 7 - 9 pm.  The location will be confirmed upon registration. 

Mother/Daughter Session - at the Celebration Day Workshop you can expect lively discussion, fun activities, women's stories and honouring of the magical threshhold of puberty and menarche where the girls spend the morning on their own with the facilitator and then Mothers (and Grandmothers who are available and wish to participate) join in the afternoon.  This will take place on Sunday IN APRIL, at Hollow Reed Holistic in Winnipeg, MB.

The cost of the workshop is $150.00, plus a booking fee, per mother and daughter duo. Payment options are available on enquiry to suit your family's situation.

Celebration Day for Girls supports girls to have a positive outlook how they look, think and feel at this stage of their lives, empowering them to be happier, more resilient, confident and connected young women. Many participants report their mother-daughter relationship is enriched through this workshop.

Richard Moody, Saturday Dec 28th - Tobacco & Rose - Songs of Personal and Planetary Healing 

Note: date changed from Dec 27th to Dec 28th. SOLD OUT 

Such Excitement! Tobacco and Rose is a project I have been developing for the last 2 years. Much of the music was born from work with plant medicine, sitting in healing circle, and being inspired to write like I haven't in 20 years. This music is all being premiered this December.

The music is spiritual; reverential to mother nature and the heart of human experience, but also sophisticated harmonically and lyrically, a nod to my inspiration by some of the greats such as Dylan, Cohen, Bach, Shiva, Kali, Dr. Seuss, etc...

These songs have been my medicine; I would now like to offer them to my community and to the world. Excited to give the first concert in Hollow Reed's New Lotus Lounge! there will be refreshments available.

tickets are limited to 33! Buy in advance. It will sell out.

Doors 7pm show 7:30pm

tickets $20 - Please find Richard Moody on FaceBook to find the link to purchase
