Linda Hunter: Open Concept
For years, Linda has aspired to walk a path of grace, choosing love over fear and recognizing that the present moment is all we have for sure. In her session, Linda explores the concept of ‘being open’ while presenting her thoughts and ideas around living with an open mind, an open heart, and an open table. She shares her journey, one that she has been filled with opportunity and adventure, created in part by living a life ‘open to possibility’.
About Linda: Linda Hunter has spent more than 30 joy filled years as an independent writer and professional event planner, dedicated to service and open to possibility. Since her arrival on Vancouver Island 21 years ago, she has gratefully shared her heart, her table, and her home with her husband, grown children and until recently, her parents. She lives by the motto “We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give” coined by Winston Churchill.
Laureen Card: The Modern Heroine’s Journey-Women Living Unlimited
While doing her own deep personal work in her 40’s, Laureen read The Heroine’s Journey, and it changed how she viewed her life journey, her darkest moments in life, and gave her work deeper meaning. The Heroine’s Journey became a framework that Laureen used to “come home to herself”, release old paradigms and limiting beliefs, and to bring her life into alignment with her inner essence and soul purposes. Now living a life in alignment with her truest self, she has reclaimed her personal power, regained deep trust in herself, and has gained an invigorated desire to deconstruct the social constructs that keep women playing small. In this talk, Laureen will share the lessons of The Heroine’s Journey, the interconnection with shame, and the importance of women’s circles, and how all of this ties in with the work she does as an Women’s Empowerment Coach. In closing, Laureen will share a short meditative exercise for releasing limiting beliefs.
About Laureen: Laureen Nowlan-Card has been an active advocate for women, children and marginalized communities her whole adult life. Her natural passion for advocacy led to a successful career as a Criminal Prosecutor for 20 years. Three years ago she decided that she wanted to support women in a more proactive and personal way and became a certified Transformational Life Coach and then the first Canadian trained in Emotional Liberation Therapy (which she describes as Emotional Fitness). Laureen’s clients benefit from the combined strengths of her keen analytical mind and her grounded sensitive nature. Laureen believes deeply in supporting and uplifting women in life, business, and leadership. Laureen believes that “we were never meant to do this all alone” and considers it an honour to be a “forklift” for other women to reach their greatness. When she’s not working, she may be found watching TED Talk videos, walking on the beach, dancing in her living room, playing or cuddling with her kids, doing yoga, or making pretty things on Canva.com.
Jo Dumont: Trusting faith to pave the road to midlife reinvention
After a career ending injury I found myself grieving the loss of my career for two years, drifting through life, feeling very lost, and stuck in self pity. Eventually I realized that I had to let go of the dream and begin creating the change I needed in my life. With good friends, a 12 step recovery program, and faith I was able to find my way out of the despair and reinvent myself. Life is a journey and today I am enjoying the journey.
Jo is a 57 year old woman, who until a few short years ago had completed Grade 9 in her formal education. Today she is completing a Master of Arts degree in Leadership and excited to build her future. It is never too late to live your dreams.
