Come and sit awhile.
Join us on a spiritual journey.
Listen to the wisdom of your heart.
What insights await you?
Tap into the rhythm of the horses’ presence and gentle hearts to deeply connect with your inner wisdom and intuition during our meditation circles. Horses possess the ability to act as conduits of connection to Self, to others and to our spiritual oneness, and can therefore deepen our meditation experience.
We will be seated outside on chairs in a circle with one or two supervised horses. The meditation will be self-guided and the horse(s) will be free to move around us. They may elect to hold space for us from a distance or they may feel inclined to offer specific individuals energetic support. As co-facilitators in this process we will leave it up to them. (This is not a facilitated learning or healing session).
Joining Krista and the Wisteria herd is Linda Chamut.
Linda has studied the Inca Shamanic tradition over many years, in Canada, the USA, and Peru. Some of the teachings that Linda practices are: the importance of smudging to remove stuck energy and to promote clarity, creating sacred space for gatherings to support higher purpose focus, and teaching the importance of centering and grounding in meditation and in life.

“Breathing in the loving horse energy brought so much clarity and heartwarming rest during our meditation on Wisteria Acres’ magical land. Thank you, Cassi, Krista and Linda” ~ Reana, Surrey, BC
“What a unique, gentle and powerful meditation experience co-facilitated by Krista, Linda and the horse Cassi! Received with a shamanic welcome into a shady grove overlooking the sunlit horse pasture, the atmosphere was magical and the space was sacred, most honouring and beautiful” ~ Nelie, Maple Ridge, BC
“I have always had a love of horses but many years ago lost touch with that part of me. As a city dweller my life is very busy and noisy. When I heard about meditation with horses, I said ‘YES’ before they had even decided on the date! My experience with the group and Cassi who joined us was beautiful. The retreat centre itself is breathtakingly beautiful as is the energy that Krista and Linda have brought to this event. I found myself in a very peaceful, quiet place that only this space offers. I look forward to attending more meditations with horses and await to see which horse joins us to offer their wisdom.” ~ Dana, North Vancouver, BC
Join us for this special Sacred Sound Healing Journey to usher out the old with deep reverence and gratitude, and align ourselves with the fresh new energies of 2019.
Weaving together Crystal Singing Bowls and Theda’s angelic vocals, as well as other sound healing instruments; drum, harp and guitar to powerfully clear and transform energy.
The vibrational frequencies of sound will clear tension and guide you into graceful release, leaving you nourished and renewed with a feeling of deep peace, trust and surrender.
“The sounds were exquisite, soft & gentle & Theda has the voice of an angel!”
Theda Phoenix is a singer, songwriter and intuitive song and sound channel drawing on her empathic abilities to reflect back the intention and energy of the group through song. She creates music for healing and transformation, touching people deeply with her angelic, transporting voice and shamanic vocal sounds.
Her music inspires a deep connection to the heart and the spirituality of the human experience, celebrating the miracle of existence and the intrinsic loving essence within all, reminding listeners of their own inner guidance and connection to source energy.
“You have the voice and the soul of an angel. When you sing, shivers go through my entire being. Keep lifting us higher, Theda. You are pure Light in form.”

Are you looking for ways to indulge your sweet tooth this holiday season without undermining your health?
Sugar consumption has been linked to obesity, heart disease, diabetes and behavioral issues in the past few years. In addition, it has been labeled as addictive as heroin! Yet we find it, in its many forms, in most packaged foods.
One of the most prevalent and toxic of sweeteners ever created is high fructose corn syrup. Used in the manufactured food industry as a flavour enhancer to a colour preservative in everything from ice cream and baked goods to BBQ sauce. Unknowingly, people are at risk of consuming sugar at every meal and with every snack on a daily basis contributing to chronic health issues.
There are healthier ways to indulge your sweet tooth without compromising taste or your health.
Join Wisteria’s own expert caterer, Erin McCabe of Le Petit Culinarian.

What would your life look like if you could find your ‘life purpose’ or even discover what makes you ‘feel on purpose’?
Dana J Smithers’ mission is to ‘educate, inspire and empower women to live joyful lives’. She uses her ‘Sacred Gifts’ of teaching, writing, wise counsel and knowledge to help other people find their sacred gifts that bring joy to them.
As a master Law of Attraction trainer & business coach she understands the importance of her clients knowing what their ‘fulfillment needs’ are. Once you know your fulfillment needs and sacred gifts you have more pieces to the puzzle of who you are and what you want in your life.
The secret to feeling that you are living on purpose is to find out what is it that you do that brings you the most JOY in your life.
In this self-discovery workshop you will:
:: Reveal to yourself what your fulfillment needs are and how you can get those met;
:: Uncover some of your Sacred Gifts that are separate from your skills and talents; and
:: You will begin to understand why you feel great doing some things and why other things just suck the life right out of you!
The morning session will focus on finding out what your ‘FULFILLMENT NEEDS’ are. What needs do you have within that when they are met really bring you joy?
From the self-discovery sessions you will uncover your Top 4 Fulfillment Needs. Once you know what they are you can make better decisions about what kind of work brings you joy, what you want in a relationship and what fulfills your spirit.
The afternoon session will be all about you uncovering your ‘SACRED GIFTS’ so that you will feel more on purpose in your life. There are 24 Sacred Gifts and you have 3 – 5 that when you are aware of them lead you to feel more fulfilled in life. You may already be aware of your ‘skills and talents’ but these are different from your Sacred Gifts. Your Sacred Gifts are for the benefit of others, are meaningful to you and allow you to feel on purpose.
BONUS: The first 10 people to sign up will receive an autographed copy of my ‘Law of Attraction Gratitude Journal’!
Come and join us – to dig a little deeper into who you really are and why you are here!

Saturday, February 2, 2019
Are you ready to learn how to manifest your dream life through a Vision Board you create?
Would you like to know how to deliberately manifest using the Law of Attraction?
Dana J Smithers is a Master Law of Attraction trainer. She knows the power of focusing on what you want to manifest through vision boards.
She has taught 1000s of people how to create their ideal life, relationship, finances, health, career, etc. using the Feng Shui Bagua and vision boards.
The Feng Shui Bagua is all about energy. It is a very useful template that uses the elements of wood, fire, metal, water and earth as well as colours to attract a healthy and harmonious life.
The secret to manifesting begins with your words, your thoughts form your vibration (the energy you give off) and that energy attracts more of what you want in your life.
By putting your future desires on a Vision Board you are letting the Universe know what you want to have. The Universe will support you and you may find you attract more than you could ever think was possible!
The morning session will focus on the Law of Attraction. You will learn the 3 Key Steps to Deliberate Manifesting that will bring power and focus to your vision.
The afternoon session will be all about you taking action to create your Vision Board and having fun doing it! You will be asked to s t r e t c h – to invite in dreams that may have been dormant for awhile or new ones that you are a little afraid to put out there!
By the end of the day you will be boldly announcing your intentions to the Universe. Your Vision Board may focus on one specific thing you want to create or your entire desires for 2019. It’s all about whatever your heart desires.
BONUS: The first 10 people to sign up will receive an autographed copy of my ‘Law of Attraction Gratitude Journal’!
Come and join us – be bold and empowered!

Breathwork – Sound Healing – Energy Cultivation
Breath Empowerment is one of the most intensely powerful energy healing practices Matthew has found. As in his sound healing journeys, this sacred practice routinely produces a profound experience for anyone willing to sincerely try it.
It is one of the few physical exercises you can do that increases your body’s alkalinity; this is extremely healing as massive amounts of energy enter your body and create an engine-like vibration.
It is done lying on a yoga mat with Matthew guiding you through the process and preparing you for the next phase of the adventure – a transformational healing sound journey.
The frequencies Matthew channels through his voice and presence creates a sonic environment that dissolves the boundaries of time and space. Energy flows and insights emerge.
You will then learn and practice simple, profound Qigong movements that create a thick magnetic field for strength, grounding and healing.
Affectionately dubbed the “Cosmic Throat Singer”, Matthew is achieving recognition as an emerging leader in the world sound healing movement.
The practices that Matthew will share in The Ultimate Energy Experience have helped him through the toughest of times, and continue to fuel his energy and vitality as he continues a rigorous schedule of performances, workshops and travel.
Space is limited. No experience necessary.
