Your Healing Circle
GUIDING YOU TO YOUR MAGICK WITH NATURE
We strongly believe in the collective’s ability to bring change. That, immediate actions in a small-scale setting can make impactful changes on the grander scale. We believe that it starts with us: human beings. But to bring about change we must nurture ourselves first; and doing so alongside heart-centered people is the fuel our body just might need.
We were not meant to go through life alone.
A listening ear; a space that nurtures belonging & safety; and a place where play, curiosity, mindfulness & meaningful connections take place we believe is the best antidote! We want all to feel safe, be loved, feel listened to, and have a sense of belonging and respect when setting foot in Nature.
While we might be the Guides, Nature is the Healer & she provides the medicine.
Where Togetherness & Belonging amongst Nature is at the core of what we do.
We encourage people of all ages to get outdoors and to nurture their relationship with the Land, its history, and all living things through different learning opportunities.
We invite you to come as you are wholeheartedly and connect with others, with yourself, and with Land.
Our hope is that you feel completely safe to tend to your needs.
We are here to hold space for you in a small & intimate setting.
Where Healing amongst & with Nature is at the core of what we do.
On the sacred & stolen lands of the Algonquin Anishinaabe territory. Whom we strive to honor, learn from, and listen to as we commit wholeheartedly to unlearn and decolonize our ways and work towards reparation of our past & present wrongdoings. Chi-miigwech !
Here, every living being is wholeheartedly loved, accepted & respected; including
LGBTQQIP2SAA, Black, Indigenous & People of Color.
At Your Healing Circle, we offer:
An intuitive & holistic approach to healing for children & adults.

TESTIMONIAL ~ ENERGY HEALING
"I've done two reiki sessions guided by Stef. Every time I enter her space I am splashed with a wave of healing feelings. Her presence and space is incredibly calming. The music, the weighted eye bag, the cozy blankets, the candles all help bring the feelings of safeness.
I enter with my needs in my mind, I leave with so much more insight. Stef truly has a gift, she sees what my mind and body is blocking out! She sees inside what I struggle to let out. I have just begun my healing journey, seeing Stef was one of my first steps to look outward for resources. Her intuitiveness, her calmness, her ability to bring out the resistance/ the truth I have been holding back is why I will continue to see her!
She is a beautiful person who has so much to offer, I recommend her for your healing journey!"
