$25/Drop in workshop (This includes the fee to support BOLD Camps.)

Location: BOLD Camps, Kidston Landing, Cape Breton, NS


Expand your mind and increase your well-being. Learn tools and practice activities to help you transform life’s challenges into insight, balance and resilience.

This is a drop-in program however, there are potentially 30 workshops to enjoy until Christmas. There are four levels with six workshops in each level and a free film and discussion series bonus at the end. It is not necessary to complete the whole program. You can take one or several workshops. Sylvie will work to make each workshop an experiential learning experience that offers the potential to improve your experience of life in some way. If you can take one workshop level in its entirety, it is highly recommended to take Level 1.

The approach is briefly introduced in Sylvie’ Rosewood’s book ‘Harmonizing Consciousness’ (2018) and this book is available at the Baddeck Library (and Amazon, of course.) Sylvie is a personal growth facilitator with a deep background in meditation and transformative therapies including hypnotherapy and Emotional Freedom Techniques (ie EFT tapping).
