Touch The Earth
A series of talks conducted by three guest speakers, bringing their different topics of healing, synergistically together for this special event.

“Stories from the Land” by Albert Dumont
Albert Dumont is a spiritual advisor, a storyteller, a poet, a human rights activist, a father, a grandfather and a member of the Algonquins of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. Albert will present “Stories from the Land” in prose and poetry and educate through his unique storytelling skills. His books and cards will be available at the event.

Meditative Healing” by Eric Bawden
Through the use of case studies, Eric Bawden will draw a thread through the teachings of Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell, Hue Len and other sources. This will provide a profound journey into the connection between the conscious world around us and the world of symbols and synchronicity. This aims to leave us with a new perspective of who we are and our connection to all that surrounds us.

“Traditional Healing for the Modern Day” by Dalva Lamminmäki
The topic Dalva Lamminmäki will be delving into is Finnish folk healing and its connection to Finnish mythology and traditional folk culture. In 2013 she visited Canada twice, as a guest lecturer at the University of Toronto, Lakehead University and the Nordic Society in Ottawa. She is currently completing her 5 year long study in Finland on the topic of Folk Healing, which she will be presenting, along with examples of her research.

Ticket: $40 CAD including coffee/Tea and light refreshments

  1. Hello:

    I would like to know if we need to registre for the writing workshop on February 11, 2014?

    Thank you

  2. Hello Albert, Speaking with you at the Human Library was the highlight of my day. I feel that I truly benefitted from our brief interaction…and I’m not the only one. Imam Jebara was quite disappointed that I hadn’t gotten your contact information and a woman I met at the United Church in Arnprior mentioned that you had inspired her also. I hope our paths cross again soon. God bless you.

    Hi, so happy that you are in Iskotew this week, which I only found out today, so see you at noon, it’s been way too long! It is funny how things work in life, I was thinking of you lately and needed to reach out to you, so last week-end I decided to write to you, and since you are near, I will bring this letter in person to you, thanks for past, present and future inspiration.
