Ross Glen Hall, Mount Royal University Registration 8:30am; Program 9am-6pm

Overwhelmed? Stressed out? Frazzled?

Who could you be...if you stopped putting everyone else's needs above your own...

If you knew how to ask for help and receive it...

If you had overflowing energy...

If you practiced self-care without guilt...



Gather in community with like-minded women who are looking for innovative ways to incorporate effective self-care strategies into their lives.


Self-Care is something we put on the back-burner not because it's complicated, but because we feel like we don't deserve it. The Courageous Self-Care Festival is going to change all that.

It's a day of learning how to fill yourself up so you can give from a place of love. You'll connect with wellness experts, like-minded women and most importantly, with your own self-worth.

Hear from Self-Care Experts during the morning keynote speech and in the afternoon "Choose Your Own Adventure" breakout sessions.

Fill out your Passport to Wellness in our Self-Care Marketplace. Win prizes, make meaningful connections and have fun!

Grab your burntout girlfriends. Take a break from all your "have-to's" and "should's" and give yourself the gift of day full of self-care. 

You'll gain fresh perspectives, get new ideas and go on a journey orf personal discovery.

If you're sick and tired of putting yourself last, come to the Courageous Self-Care Festival. You deserve to be at the top of your list.



Hear from the best teachers that our industry has to offer. At the Festival, you'll get to Choose Your Own Adventure so you can hear the speakers who align with what you need most.

3 Transformational Secrets for More Energy, Less Stress and a Healthier You (without giving up everything you love)

I truly believe that we all deserve to live our best lives. A life that we create and design for ourselves filled with vitality, energy, health and joy. A life in which we thrive instead of just surviving day to day.

After all, if the Queen or King don’t eat first, the Kingdom will fail! Meaning, if we don’t take care of ourselves first, everything else around us will crumble. Are you ready to unleash your best life? See you soon!

Moon Manifesting & Aligning to Your Desires

Living in attunement to the Lunar Cycles teaches us to participate in harmony with the natural rhythms that govern our emotional and experiential world. Rather than being overwhelmed by the surface turbulence of our growth and awakening process, we become empowered within its underlying current. We establish an inner peace that is in tune with the natural cycles of life.

Rather than fighting our daily experience or attempting to force outcomes that are out of touch with our inherent life cycles, we learn to embrace our experience in the unconditional acceptance that makes possible true inner change. We can then manifest in our outer world, and in our relations, the changes we truly seek.

Living in attunement to the Lunar Cycles supports our greatest well being and the manifestation of our highest potential and its expression on Earth.

Sam Bell

Rise of the Divine Feminine, Fall of the Patriarchy

In this talk, Sam weaves a magical story of reflection, demonstrating how within a story of adversity, there always lies a powerful gift. A gift that woman by woman is changing the world in which we live.

In this context, she encourages her audience to reflect upon the statement made by the Dalai Lama at the Vancouver Peace Festival, 2009 "The world will be saved by the western woman and explains the Paradigm Shift that is dismantling the Patriarchy.

This powerful, emotive yet ‘filled with humour’ talk, demonstrates how we seek freedom from the patriarchy and all forms of oppression that exploit and devalue women, peoples and the environment, and begin to see societies working towards radical transformation and focusing on their relationships between people and of the relationships between people and nature.

You are the Puzzle ~ the Greatest Love Story Ever Told

Life events guide and govern our thoughts, choices, and ultimately our behaviours. We see life through these experiences. Big events have an emotional attachment, hold us in our weakest moments, and stop us from really living. All without our knowing.

All events in our early life are big to us. We think we get over them or that they don’t really affect us. I know, I thought I had. In my twenties, I'd worked through some big wounds from my childhood but years later my world showed me just how deeply ingrained these patterns really were and how they were subconsciously creating the life I didn’t want… until 5am one fateful morning everything changed.

So how do we live a life that really excites us when we're being held in our past with no control over it? How do we let it go? This is the journey to releasing our past and live a life of Good to Great to EXCEPTIONAL.

Embrace Your Natural and Necessary Grief

You may associate grief with the death of a loved one, but any life change can cause grief. Divorce, relationship breakup, miscarriage, career change, job loss, retirement, caring for aging parents or selling the family home can all trigger the emotions of grief.

Grieving is a highly individual experience. How you grieve depends on many factors including your life experience, personality and coping style. While grief is inevitable, most of us have never been taught how to grieve. The coping strategies we use are unnatural, unhelpful and unhealthy.

During this presentation Melody Chardon will provide safe, healthy and effective strategies to help you:

  • Identify and come to terms with past or present grief
  • Cope with the lingering pain of loss or change
  • Pick up the pieces and move on with your life

Imagine what could be possible once you Embrace Your Natural and Necessary Grief.
