Our Wellness Practioners and Facilitators

Valerie Dingman

Valerie’s life has been dedicated to understanding  how  the body, mind, emotions and our experiences create who we are as human beings and animals. She became a medical health professional in part because of her fascination with how the brain works. Valerie is a registered Speech Language Pathologist who has 30 years of experience dealing with both children’s and adults’ communication challenges.

She attended U.B.C. in the 1980’s, living and working in Vancouver BC, a place which provided a rich venue of exploration in both allopathic medicine and alternative means of healing. This in turn fueled her own personal spiritual quest and studies.

A serious back injury in 1991 that lasted 18 months but was healed instantaneously when working with a practitioner  who used energy and acupressure techniques,  triggered studying  energy healing in earnest. Valerie is certified in a number of energy and body work methods, as well as in systems that address mental/emotional facets, using techniques such as age-regression and re-patterning to heal trauma and negative beliefs.  These core beliefs can keep us repeating patterns of behaviours and staying stuck in emotions of fear, anger and sadness. Session work involves identifying and shifting limiting beliefs, and emotional, energy and/or physical releases, employing a variety of therapeutic techniques.

In 2013 Valerie completed a 2-year advanced shamanism program and practises and facilitates earth based ceremonies and journeys. She incorporates soul retrieval and other shamanic techniques into her client practise in the tradition of shamanic healers and as an adjunct to her own Earth-based spiritual practice.

Diane Finlayson

Diane is a Reiki Master/Teacher/Practitioner, and a Practitioner of Causal Realignment and Etheric Healing.  She teaches Reiki, Levels I to Master, facilitates classes in Mindfulness (MBSR), for adults and children, and holds spiritual development classes based on Universal Esoteric Principles.

Her ultimate goal in all healing practices and teachings is to make knowledge and process available to you, so that you may become empowered to integrate changes into your life, to learn how to self heal and to maintain a healthy life style balance.

Diane’s initial work experiences began in Early Childhood Education and spanned several years of management in the business arena.  Now, with over 40 years of experience in working with people of all ages, in various settings, and in various situations, she has a keen desire to facilitate empowerment allowing those with whom she works to reclaim their ‘life’ through a process of integration.

In everything she teaches, and in all healing therapy sessions, the mantra is ‘Learn (Discover), Process, Practice and Apply’ .

The body is an integral unit, Mind, Body and Spirit working together in perfect synchronicity.   How we maintain this perfect integration, how we nurture self on all levels and how we learn to navigate and integrate the balance in our daily life is a key element.

Diane is always a student of the Greater Mysteries of Life, the esoteric principles and universal laws which govern us on every level with ongoing and continuous studies.
