A huge shout out to Darcy Herring, as one of our fabulous Messengers of Peace!

As a mom of a child with anxiety, I have spent the last 4 years trying to win the battle and create a more calm world for my son. What started as a losing battle soon shifted in my favour when I started incorporating my Master training and Certifications in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) and Hypnosis to ease the fear and curb the anxiety. By working with the mind and the incredible ability for choice, I now hold the upper hand when anxiety rears it’s ugly head.

My work with clients involves teaching them tools and techniques, giving them back control over their lives, and allowing them to win their battle with fears and anxiety. It’s all about strategies – those that serve us and those that don’t.

As a Strategy Coach I have an awesome ability to identify a person’s strategy and make the necessary changes, creating forward movement in the direction of your dreams.

Bringing CALM to the storm, goals WITHIN reach and FOCUS for performance.

A huge Shout Out to this Speaker, sharing on her Message of Peace: “Healthy Heart Merry Mind”, Amy Rempel.

When Amy’s children were little she was diagnosed with osteoarthritis due to a genetic disorder, she was able to get through it with acupuncture and the help of her amazing Naturopath and realized the incredible benefits of natural solutions to pain. Amy thought that also starting her own business would help her bring in an income only working part time. Unfortunately it did not work out that way for her with that particular company. In fact it stressed her out and her health declined.

Since January 2017, when she founded Healthy Heart Merry Mind, she has helped many women make significant changes to their experiences of self-care and family care and has found a business that works with her lifestyle! Today, Amy’s focus is to help women understand and establish a healthy lifestyle so they feel confident in their pain and stress management. She has also partnered with Inspired Haus as a business coach for an incredible program called 90-Days of Change. In the program Amy teaches what she has learned as a lifelong entrepreneur about the mindset and accountability factors that support women’s success in business.

As a foundation she believes that we as women need to be kinder to ourselves and incorporate significant self care into our businesses. She will be speaking about this and you can learn more in her upcoming co-authored book called “I’m 30, Now What?”. Stay tuned for her presentation on 5 practical habits to easily establish in a busy life!

You can reach Amy at [email protected], go to her website and follow her on social media FB: @healthyheartmerrymind and on Instagram: @healthyheartmerrymind

A Huge Shout Out to Speaker Carmela Lamanna, sharing on her Message of Peace: “Raising the Spirit”.



Cathy Bell has been working with Healing Energy Medicine in her own Practise, Transformation Facilitation, and Reflexology for over 22 years with over 8 Certifications. Her passion, energy, humour, unique viewpoint, and peaceful nature will have you feeling very secure in her presence. More than believing Cathy feels there is a deeper place of knowing in each of us, and she has the ability to take you to this place.

A journey into remembering who you truly are is Cathy’s gift of healing service. She teaches us that everything we are looking for is right inside of us, peace truly begins within, and with simple tools we can learn to access our own personal power. From this place we realize the inter-connectedness of all life, which takes you to Cathy’s next passion, a message of Oneness.

Her humble simple song called We Are One, celebrates the paradigm shift of separation to coming together in unity. You will continue to find Cathy walking out her message in everything she does, from healing work in her practice, to her group work in self-empowerment, her music, her own journey of self-reflection/inquiry, and her committed journey of being a student of life. Contact information [email protected], and, We Are One Song with Video’s at Cathy’s Corner on You Tube.

Cathy will be taking us on a journey into Energy and how you are connecting or not connecting with your own Light Force. She will have a very fun conduit, her Drum, and will be talking through the drum to awaken the spirit within. Cathy uses the drum as a powerful tool of healing to wake up the spirit, which at times is dancing with a tangled mind. In a very short journey during her talk, you will have an experiential moment diving deeper into the infinite you. Come join Cathy and experience a taste of your High Vibe self, or at least a beginning invitation into a new perspective or viewpoint. You will be glad you did!

Team Celebration is elated to announce our esteemed Speaker, Linda Lonseth joining us to celebrate World Peace Day 2017 on Sept. 17.

Linda Lonseth, M.Mus, B.Ed
Transformational Intuitive Lightwork Master


She uses the following energy therapies in her work… Read More Here.

Linda has her own unique bodywork abilities – playing with spaces (which contain all the energies). It’s kind of difficult to describe (but do ask for a demonstration!) This is superfast and superpowerful! She also works with light from a different realm in bodywork sessions – somewhat distinct from playing with spaces, also difficult to describe, but much better experienced and enjoyed!

Most of the bodywork she does with spaces is non-contact, and is sometimes done in conjunction with Access Body Processes and Access Bars, in private sessions. She will share whatever spaces and energies your body ‘asks for‘.

She loves to show people how to play with spaces, spin spaces, and work with powerful light columns. She gives workshops (both in-person and online) to share this with anyone who is interested. This is indeed the cutting edge of transformational work – both self-administered, and for therapeutic purposes. For starters, attend lightwork project sessions and learn how to work with light.
Claudia Mariano is a Nurse Practitioner, author, educator, and entrepreneur.

She combines her passion for science, medicine, education, and freedom by managing a full time clinical practice, teaching nursing students, sharing her premium skin care products and business opportunities, and teaching women how to live their lives with purpose.

Benevolence for self and others, through passion and purpose.

This is the cornerstone of her endeavours and will be the focus of her presentation.
