About the presenters:
Mya Wollf (Pàirteach Mòirneas) is an initiated traditional healer and spirit worker, herbalist, holistic therapist and 500hr advanced certified yoga teacher based out of Vancouver, BC. She dedicates her practice to the teachings and medicine of her northern Celtic ancestors, and is deeply committed to creating and holding safer space for all genders, expressions and identities to find their own inner healing and connection to ancestral roots.
Antonya Raymond is a certified holistic nutritionist, trainer, life coach, chef and dancer based out of Vancouver, bc. Her passion is to support others in their healing path through mind, body and spiritual connection, and to utilize a multi-faceted approach to nutritional wellness through ayurveda, herbalism, and the science of food.
This event takes place on the unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and it is with great reverence, appreciation, honouring and accountability that we acknowledge our presence on this land as settlers, and vow to do the work necessary to reduce the amount of harm we create in the world; only by finding healing and the way back to our roots can we effectively hold this space for others to do the same, and so we stand rooted in the commitment to do the hard work for all of our future generations.
