Healing Female Hormone Imbalance

“What you may not have been told about balancing hormones naturally.”

Eating for Energy & Vitality

“What would your life be like with an abundance of energy and vitality?”

Fatigue, sluggishness and low energy have become common place in society. The food choices you make have a profound impact on whether you feel energized and excited or completely drained.

A Woman’s Guide to Natural Skincare

“Learn to make your own skin care products that rejuvenate, heal and revive the skin.”

The average women’s covers herself in over 500 different chemicals before she leaves her house in the morning. Skin care products, even so-called organic products, are laden with dangerous chemicals that are easily absorbed through the skin.

  • What ingredients to watch out for when buying skin care products
  • How to make your own natural skincare products at home
  • Delicious foods that nourish the skin

“Ditch the diet, lose weight and keep it off for good.”

We all know how to lose weight. What most of us don’t know is how to keep it off in the long term. Statistics tells us that 95% of people who lose weight on a diet, gain it back.

  • Why eating less and exercising more doesn’t work
  • How hormones impact your ability to burn fat
  • Simple lifestyle techniques that turn you into a fat burning machine
  • How to lose weight naturally and keep it off

Trials & Tribulations of Getting Off the Pill

February 9, 2015
February 9, 2015

Around New Years the conversations about health and leading a healthier lifestyle became more frequent with Jeff, my partner. We both live very busy lives that are focused on our work at this point and so we find it more difficult to make time for things that will really benefit our health. Much of this talk surrounds exercise and food, but I have recognized for awhile that the birth control pill was one of the most unhealthy things I was doing to myself. And so, I decided to get off the pill to help my body start to return to a state of better balance…while also hoping to not become a crazy person!

Birth_Control_PillsAs a result I’ve started a bit of a journey that definitely holds a few fears for me. My hope in sharing the journey off the pill is that it might help give others an idea of the symptoms of coming off the pill, both good and bad! I have read for many years the negative side effects of being on the pill (like this one here) and after being on it for 15 years it is a relief to be free of it!

It’s been a few weeks now since I stopped taking the pill and a few things have arisen so far:

1. the obvious issue of preventing pregnancy is definitely something that I have to worry about more now. Previously I didn’t have to ever worry about this and so this might cause a little more stress.

2. A form of thick acne spots have started to pop up a bit. Although it isn’t a big issue so far, I’m curious about the fact that these have popped up at this point.

3. I have been having far more vivid dreams and nightmares!

My fears mostly lie around having a very unstable cycle, as well as very unstable hormones. I am hoping that the instability there doesn’t make me crazy!! It should be interesting anyways!


Wish me luck!!


Deep Meditation with Nathalie Keiller

February 5, 2015
February 5, 2015

Sitting in meditation is a twofold invitation: an intimate encounter with your own mind and heart, and a deep opening to the universe itself.



During this special 4 day Meditation Event each participant will be initiated into an ancient Vedic tradition of meditation. This form of meditation is unique in technique and most students of the teaching find that it is the most effortless and natural of the meditation styles they have tried. This creates the simplest path to deep relaxation and self acceptance without worrying about ‘doing it right’ or controlling ones thoughts.

Once initiated each student will be given their individual mantra with one-on-one instruction and meditation time. To keep students focused and supported on their new commitment to themselves, Nathalie offers ongoing support after the workshop via skype or phone calls.

About Nathalie:

Nathalie has been a meditator for more than 20 years and has taught Deep Meditation since 2005. Her meditation practice started in 1991. From then her inspiration in sharing the experience of inner peace led her to deepen her studies. She was transmitted the knowledge to teach this meditation technique between 2001 and 2005. Believing that continuous learning requires a commitment to teaching, she is enjoying the path under the guidance of her principal teacher, Denis Cléroux, senior instructor since 1973, formally trained by a great master. Her passion for learning and sharing the depths of meditation is the core engine of her life and vocation.
