Join us for a group walk, as we travel the landscape of the inner world. This one-day workshop is open to anyone who wishes to enhance the sense of being intimately connected with oneself, the foundation for self-acceptance and ultimately, ‘right action’ with others.
During the workshop, you’ll be invited to tune in deeply to yourself, helped by the signposts of poetry and the presence of other like-minded souls. You don’t have to know or even like poetry to participate – all that is required is the willingness to turn inwards and listen with an open heart.
The day will include guided meditations, movement and dancing, group and partner exercises, poems spoken to music, journal writing, and, optional group sharing of experiences and writing. Tea and coffee will be available in the morning, as well as a simple lunch of soup and salad.
Date: Spring 2018 (date to be confirmed)
Time: 9:30 to 4:00 pm
Location: Ottawa area (venue to be confirmed)
Fee: $125 plus applicable taxes (includes lunch).

The workshop was a deeply enriching experience. I have participated many different kinds of inner-directed workshops and found that “Welcoming Yourself Home” provided a unique and truly effective way of accessing and integrating internal resources. I feel richer and more connected to myself and to the world as a result of participating. The success of this approach is due in no small part to Mary Lou’s skill and sensitivity. She has an authentic and open-hearted way of inviting participants to dance in their own light.
Thank you for sharing your gift with us Mary Lou. Your gentle guidance has opened up a whole new world for me.
The poetry we shared in the space is still reverberating in my body. Thank you for leading the workshop with such love and gentleness.
I am clearing a space –
here, where the trees stand back….
Here I will stand with my hands empty,
mind gaping under the moon.
