The bent willow facilitators

I would like to introduce myself and give a little information about my spiritual journey. 

I have since a very young age, been connected to the universe. I recall in my earliest days as a child my family visited a show and there was a booth set up to take a picture of our Aura. I laughed to myself in slight confusion when they showed us the image. I could already see this without a camera. Aura and energy is what I now consider to be vibrations and were always apart of my vision. I never thought anything of it as it was my normal. 


Intuition I later learned had always been a part of me. I never really believed in readings or anything like it. I felt it rather taboo and even fraudulent. That all changed with my first deck of cards. The cards literally sang to me in an overwhelming fashion. The vibrations and colours emanating from them was extraordinary. At first I couldn't understand it but after listening and learning the tones I was able to communicate and connect to the energies around me.


The Bent Willow in Oshawa became my second home and with their blessings, I started sharing what I consider a gift. I later found that what I had to offer, with no ego involved, had been passed down through my family. This makes me known as what is called a legacy reader. It was almost as if the universe, vibrations and messages finally made sense. I learned through my family the art of Candle Wax Readings, Aura, Vibration and Oracle Card Readings. 

Every Wednesday evening I offer meditations at The Bent Willow. Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health. These benefits do not end when your meditation session ends with me. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and may help you manage different needs or situations in your everyday life. 

I hope to give others what they need and when they need it. 

Much love Sean


Hello I am Shari owner Echoes of the Mother International Fusion Bellydance. I am also the instructor and creator/artist of the Chakra Dance Meditation in Movement.

Where Spirit, Mind, and Body mix for a more positive outlook and a better way of life.

I am excited to share with you what I have learned, continue to learn from my dance and life experience. Through insight, meditation, movement and dance, healing our energies. Where I imagine a place of higher vibration, improving the perspective of the world we live in, one person at a time. Where Spirit, Mind, and Body mix for a more positive outlook and a better way of life. 


Evoking emotion through body movement, a gaze, a hand movement – all very important factors in this form, which can be very different from the highly choreographed “5,6,7,8” of western dance forms. Even though I started with Modern Jazz, which is a Western dance form – highly choreographed, it still taught me the importance of musicality and movement, above technique. My bellydance has evolved from a Tribal Fusion, to a more modern/lyrical form now recently globally recognized as International Fusion. I am always learning and improving to make it relevant and exciting in today’s changing world energies. Come to our Fusion Belly Dance (International Fusion Dance) Classes! Find out what it feels like to set yourself free. Gain confidence and positive body awareness, exercise, and have fun while awakening your Inner Goddess along with your Chakras! Radiate your Spirit outwards, feel good! A truly expressive dance form, using body isolations, shimmies, expression in movement and emotion, this belly dance fusion is a combination of inspirations from the Middle East, Asian, Flamenco, Modern Urban, and lyrical dance forms. Music will be inspired from all across our Mother Earth. 


Fear cannot exist in the Presence of Love.”

Certified Astrologer

A personal astrology consultation is a much more in depth way to look at the energies within your chart. As a professional Astrologer Nicole will go over your chart with you and point out different aspects that may not be included in the computer generated charts. The reports are a great thing if you are just learning about your own astrology and want something to be able to reference back to. They are indeed helpful but they just don't hold as much for you as you would receive sitting down with a professional astrologer.
Nicole will go through what holds the most importance in your chart and it also provides you the opportunity to get your questions answered that you may have about your chart. 

Tarot Reading

Tarot Readings can consist of a general reading or questions.  
When I do readings I come from the angle of self-exploration and healing. I believe that you hold all of the power within your own life and that you should never give that power away to anyone including a reader. We will look at the energy at play and I will give you strategies for moving forward. Nothing is fixed or set in stone as we all have free will and are able to change our paths at any time.  


My name is Caroline, also known as “Kali”. I am a Yoga teacher and an indigo child. My spiritual journey began at a young age, with a strong connection to the elements, and my ability to feel spirit both in person and through my dreams. 

Trauma healing has been a major part of my personal journey, helping to go deeper into myself and my spirituality which led me to Yoga during a trip to Nicaragua in 2015. I instantly fell in love with the practice while overlooking
the ocean, and I haven’t looked back since. After years of personal practice and exploration, I ventured off to the jungles of Costa Rica on my own in search of myself and my purpose. There, I attained my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training (YTT) certificate at Gypsea Yoga School in Uvita. I offer various Yoga movement classes including Hatha and Yin, Philosophy of Yoga Workshops, Meditations and Pranayama (breath work). The themes of my Yoga classes change weekly, with a focus on either relaxing, energizing, stress release or heart opening. All levels are welcome - beginner friendly!

As many individual journeys involve healing and overcoming trauma, it’s important to me to effectively hold space for my clients. I completed various courses in mental health, and obtained my Mental Health First Aid Certificate (MHFA) in 2017.        


In addition to Yoga, I also work with Tarot Cards, Oracle Cards, Pendulums, Crystals and continue my journey on attaining knowledge as a student of the Bent Willow in addition to being a facilitator.
