Writers Festival Launch Party Fundraiser

 

Join us at the Thousand Islands Playhouse Firehall Theatre as we launch our 2017 season with period food and frivolity in celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary. Enjoy readings with Lindy Mechefske, author of Sir John’s Table, live music and dancing with Turpin’s Trail, and a guest appearance with none other than Sir John A himself.

It will be a night not to be missed in tribute to the rascal, lawyer, politician, food, beverage and book lover who helped draw us all together as a nation.

Mind, Body and Soul

 

 

Corinne Clapham delicately crafted this special yoga class with the intention of nourishing your three elements of well-being; Mind, Body & Soul.

Meditation to quiet the mental mind chatter and stretch its mental capacity. Leaving you more clear minded and in a more peaceful state. Yoga to stretch and strengthen your body with movement of your breath. Bringing you to a place of being more flexible, better bone health, feeing fresh and renewed with more balance in your life.

Mudras, a spiritual gesture using the hands to stimulate different parts of the body to guide energy flow to the brain. Opening fresh space to invite positivity into your life. Fulfilling your Souls purpose. With a touch of sound healing through beautiful vibrations of a crystal singing bowl.
