Your Hosts:

Denise Carpenter

Denise is celebrating her 20th year as a Reiki Master/Teacher, making this her 23rd year as a Reiki Practitioner. One of her aspirations while developing her Reiki practice was to help build the Reiki Community. This is her fifth Reiki Conference and she has indeed felt the strong bones of her Reiki Community develop and grow over the years. The next stage of her personal Reiki practice is now beginning …. It has been whispering as a message from Flow….she is now to deepen her Reiki practice and service to contribute to the whole of Community. To that end, this will be her last conference to help organize and facilitate. Denise has thoroughly enjoyed working with Brenda to develop and deliver the conferences and cherishes the relationship that has grown between them. She is also incredibly grateful for the relationships created by coming together in Community with those who have participated over the years. Denise looks forward to greeting you at this year’s conference.

Pete Bernard


It’s in your DNA

Pete is an Algonquin from the Algonquins of Pikwàkanagàn First Nation in Golden Lake, Ontario, Canada.
He is a Midewin (often referred to as a Healer or Shaman) who offers private healing ceremonies, rituals, group healing circles, and offers various training programs for those interested in learning Medicine Work. He also offers public talks on Spirituality and Healing.
He believes that any person can be more than what they are, and the way that we become more is to begin healing our stuff so it does not affect us or our decision making in our lives and loves.

Susan Kumar


Empower Yourself with Movement 

Following a life-changing year studying and backpacking in Europe at 23 years old, Susan knew that a desk job was not in her future. She completed her B.A. and then opted to study Massage Therapy.

Susan’s strength, compassion, and sense of humour create a safe space where clients can unwind both physically and emotionally.

Jacynthe  Villemarie

Turning imperfect into “I’M PERFECT

Where does empowerment come from?  I believe it comes from within, and sourced in self-love.  But the tyrant of perfectionism gets in the way… How often have you stopped in your tracks, refused an opportunity, stunted the business’ growth because you believed you, or the other, lacked perfection?  Follow ancient wisdom to find your super power. Slay the tyrant of perfectionism, and return to empowered Love.  Life is sweeter and more magical this way.

My goal is to help women remember, reconnect with, and access their inner wisdom — the wisdom passed down from countless generations of women who walked this earth in appreciation of the loving force of Creation. I’m a bit of a rebel. I heal souls (or rather help souls remember they’re never broken). I devise rituals, read Tarot, practice Reiki, consult the Akashic Records, plan with the moon, and converse with goddess. Crystals and essential oils are love interests.

My objective is to empower women through simple practices, so they can return to a sense of inner peace, harmony, and unshakable confidence in their unique gifts. I help healers and spiritual guidesses rise to their potential with the best ethics, confidence, and authenticity. That is the role and mission of the Priestess. That is the drive that made me leave a full-time, very well paid job with the federal government after 13 years of service. That is the heart-felt tug stirring my soul and pushing me to create learning and coaching services, and which led me to launch Mystic Priestess School.

Magic, wonder, and timeless wisdom is in my blood. And if you’re here; I know it’s in you, too.

Andrew Fisher


Drumming up Heart Unity 

This circle is all about trust and freedom! We bring the spirit of the drum to help unify our hearts and breathe fire into our bodies and souls. Listening, we play in unison. Bring an instrument if it calls to you, I will provide as many as possible.

Andy Fisher, also called Cedar, or perhaps Uncle Jazz. It is an honour to be a part of this Reiki gathering. I am currently training to be a Reiki master teacher, and have been on an earth focused healing journey since I came of age. Music, and drumming, has been an axis for this unfolding. I have offered many drum circles, ranging from collective healing circles, to kids camps, to open jams in a park. Every time it is a magical experience. I have been taught by master drummers from around the world, and close to home, music being a central part of my family and my journeys abroad. Currently I am centered in Muskoka Ontario, but my roots reach across the globe. Blessings.

2:15 – 3:15


Kathy Glover Scott M.S.W


Eradicating Internal Blockages to Full Potential

As a Reiki practitioner and/or teacher, your ability to be optimally effective and empowered can be undermined by ‘root blockages’ in yourself. This session will bring to consciousness what may be limiting you, teaching you tools for releasing these interferences and a group release session to move restrictive energy.

Kathy Glover Scott M. S.W., Reiki Master  (Ascended Degrees)

Kathy has dedicated her long career to proactively teaching people to know and live their soul purpose. She has taught Reiki for twenty five years  with hundreds of repeat students and clients. Spending some time away from her Reiki Ottawa practice to resettle in Russell, Ontario and to deepen her spiritual practice, Kathy will soon return with new classes and services. She is the author of ‘Reiki and Crystals: Activating the Power of Fire and Ice’ and ‘Core of Self’, as well as being a registered psychotherapist.
