Pender Island Flute Retreat

June 15 - 21, 2013

This is a unique and high profile opportunity to hone your musical skills, while also getting to know yourself at a new level. PIFR presents a unique opportunity for professional and advanced University flutists to reach new heights in performance and teaching through the integration of musical and personal development.

The combination of an encouraging, compassionate, non-competitive environment, brilliant teaching and a beautiful ocean front setting creates the opportunity to experience the mystery and magic of music on a profound level.

The Pender Island Flute Retreat is designed to address not only how we teach our students but also how we teach ourselves. PIFR is a Mount Royal University Conservatory Summer Program.

Leah Halvorsen, CPCC, PCC will be facilitating the workshop component of the Pender Island Flute Retreat for the 2013 season.

Leadership Development Workshop Series

February 04, 2013

Leadership is everywhere, and not just for the “leaders”. Each individual is a part of the landscape of greater success, and if each individual is tuning into their strengths, possibilities and choices, the greater whole benefits immensely. I custom design your Leadership Development Workshop Series to specifically address leadership challenges and development opportunities that are unique to your group or organization. This series can be experienced by an individual or small group (both one-offs and staggered roll outs are available).

My philosophy of inside-out, roots up, leadership development empowers those in your organization to maximize themselves for the sake of self, as well as the growth and benefit of the organization.
After the Leadership Development Series, you can expect your team members:
-to be more familiar with their own unique leadership style
-utilize their unique style to benefit the organization and meet individual and organizational goals
-make conscious choices that align with their leadership vision
-to be aware of agency and situational climate, and use their leadership to effect changes where necessary
-employ leadership strategies in interpersonal situations for the sake of aligning actions and philosophy
-contribute to an environment focused on response-able choices
-to have a new awareness of creating alignment during conflict
-and more!

Please contact me directly to discuss your specific Leadership Development needs, and a boutique program will be tailored to your focus and requests.

A Day With Benjamin–Taking Deeper Counsel

October 20, 2012
A Day With Benjamin–Taking Deeper CounselA Day With Benjamin–Taking Deeper Counsel

Join Leah Halvorsen CPCC, ACC and Kirsty Macgregor in Calgary for a life changing day! “Taking Deeper Counsel” is a day-long workshop intended to help you find your own truth, by seeking guidance from Benjamin, a channeled voice of group consciousness. Have you ever been with a channeled entity/energy? Would you like to be?

Here’s what I really want to say about this enlightening opportunity: I have held counsel with Benjamin. The experience itself widened my perception of the universe around me, and had me feeling heard, understood and empowered. Once I had this experience, I really wanted to bring it to you all. We have heightened the “Benjamin Experience” by adding additional integrative exercises to tie together your deeper knowing with Benjamin’s. The information you gain from this targeted Benjamin conversation, will be used to create a meaningful picture and path forward.

Kirsty will join us in Calgary from Scotland, and this opportunity is not just ANY workshop. It is a rare opportunity to touch other dimensions, feel, and use what you find to realign your human experience.

It is no coincidence that this workshop is taking place during the same weekend as the Body, Spirit and Soul 2012 Expo in Calgary. Plan to be with us in Calgary at Om Studio, for a day that will rock your world! Opportunities for this experience are limited, so if we have piqued your interest or curiosity, get in touch and book your spot. Don’t let this one go by–

This event was originally slated to take place in Lacombe AB, and has been moved to Om Studio 812 Edmonton Trail NE Calgary, Alberta.
