This is how I was born, in the nineteen eighties, in Montreal, Canada. I was born from a couple who, after only seeing what was missing from my body, put me up for adoption. I was promptly moved to a nursery, then out of the province. I had undergone many surgeries and hundreds of hours of physical therapy all by the age of two. But this was just the beginning.  I was adopted by the
most amazing two people I could’ve ever asked for, and
joined a large and growing family.  Raised with the knowledge that I could achieve anything, that I was indeed the director of my own destiny. And with that, I pushed forward.  Every moment an experience, every experience 
an opportunity to learn and be inspired.

 Ann MacKinnon has been working in the healing and social justice areas for most of my life. I understand our health, well being and the well being of others to be integrated. The personal, political, spiritual and physical are all interrelated. I believe our development as living beings, the development of our societies, and the development of our environment are all connected to one another.

We live in challenging times. With the amount of confusion, distress, isolation, overwork and sickness around us we need to continually make an effort and commitment to support ourselves and each other towards an integrated holistic process. My approach to healing and development is a client centred practice; to meet the client where she is and with a warm and nurturing approach, work together to where she wants to be.

Allison Creech M.Ed, ND 

I am grateful to be able to honour spirit, mind, and body in the work I do as a naturopathic doctor and professor.  It was a bit of a surprise when I first discovered my gift for guiding journey-based activations of consciousness, but this has become one of my favourite ways to support wellbeing.  I am honoured to help others connect to the life force within, and to witness the amazing energy that opens up as we do.  When it comes to healing, my sense is that our own vitality emerges as we are able to process our experience from a space of safety and deep connection, grounded in the present moment.  Love and compassion for the self is where it's at!  

In my private practice, I often combine acupuncture with guided meditation and I offer small-group acupuncture + deep relaxation sessions on a monthly basis.  Find out more at www.alightalive.com

I believe in the analogue revolution. I believe we are moving farther and farther from who we are meant to be as a result of an increased relationship with technology, and a shrinking relationship with all things that are alive. I believe in local.  I believe that the change the world is longing for happens right in our own backyards. I believe it’s important to know your neighbour and the local coffee barista. I believe in making impact by connecting on a deep and intimate level with ourselves and one another.  I believe nature can show us about who we are. I believe that inside each of us, there is a deep longing to connect, to belong, to love and be loved. I believe we are all searching for a return to this place within us.
