KIERON PARSONS
MS, MH, NMP

* Despite Kieron not being recognised as a Naturopathic Doctor in Canada right now, he anticipates to obtain this title along with the healthcare coverage for his clients this summer.

Kieron is a strong believer that a well-functioning gastric system is the foundation of health.  However, if our gut is not digesting, absorbing or eliminating waste correctly, there is an elevated possibility for the rest of our body to become affected.  Fortunately, our digestive system possesses the ability to repair itself through the help of healthy eating and the use of other health promoting therapies.

Sarah Salter Kelly
SPIRITUAL TEACHER, HEALER, AUTHOR

Sarah Salter Kelly is a spiritual teacher, healer, and author of Trauma as Medicine. She utilizes the raw compounded teachings of her life experience to uplift, empower and guide others. Her wisdom is authentic, embodied and hard won – generated through years of integrating the tragic homicide of her mother and forgiving the perpetrator – alongside 30 years of studying personal growth, energy healing, shamanism, and earth-based traditions. Over the past 15 years she has run a private healing practice, facilitated retreats in Canada and in Peru, taught trauma-focused and shamanic healing workshops, and presented at numerous conferences/public events.

She is adept at supporting you in connecting with love and using your awareness of this love to heal.

Private sessions are available with the following focuses, though they typically overlap (healing is messy) as she brings all her tools to the table. Note if you are unsure as to what you need, it may be determined with guidance in the session.

Spiritual Guidance: Who are you, why are you here, and what does it all mean? Receive direction in addressing life’s bigger questions and listening to the answers generated within.

Reiki: Traditional Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki is shared to facilitate inner peace, heal imbalances, and release unwanted energies.

Psychedelic Integration: Understand and make sense of plant medicine experiences to tune into the bigger picture and find direction forward.

Soul Retrieval: Reclaim the lost parts of your soul that have been fractured through grief, trauma, or loss.

Past life regression: Discover the source of present-day unhealthy patterns that just don’t go away, and become aware of how you may change them.

Ancestral Healing: Transform and heal the generational patterns you have inherited to clear the suffering in yourself, your ancestors and your descendants.

Trauma focused Energy Healing: Become aware of your trauma from an energetic point of view and identify what concrete steps you can take to cultivate freedom. Recognise where you are holding it in your body, and what you need to do to metabolize it – releasing the waste and assimilating the gifts.

Shamanic Journey: Experience the direct revelation of an altered state. With the use of drum or other sound tools you will communicate directly with Spirit/Source to ask some of your big soul questions and go deeper on your path. This often includes connection with a power animal, ancestor and helping spirit

Cleansing: Heavy energy accumulates from the acts of daily living as well as the weight of our unresolved suffering. Be cleansed with a prayer, personal invocation, and rattle to release what you do not need and come home to your body.

Ceremony: This is the action piece that supports you in manifesting your intention. You may be supported in receiving a ceremony which corresponds to your healing or in learning to create your own.

Tools utilized in your session may be: smudging, sound healing, drumming, shamanic journey, led meditation, talk, ceremony, reiki, personal inquiry, breath work.

Most sessions are set up with the following format:

  • Invocation/prayer/blessing – connection to the highest powers of the universe to mark our session as holy and sacred.
  • Discussion – sharing of your intention and reason for our session.
  • Purification – a basic visualization to release heavy energy and open to the light of Source within.
  • Safe place – identification of what you need to feel safe in moving inwards.
  • Body focus – awareness of where you are holding the energy you are addressing and what this means to you.
  • Moving inwards – Choosing one of the above focuses to address intention for our session.
  • Closing prayer

Sessions are 60 minutes $150 CAD
