The Love Project

I wish someone would have told me back when I lost my son that a heart cannot open to the world if one body is numb. 

Do you find yourself at a cross-road? I do. All the time.

Everything shift and changes, nothing stays the same.

Moving forward in my best most inspired life, I want to be okay with that. Not just okay… I want to thrive and flourish.

Feeling 'blah' physically or emotionally is no way to live a life.

My ONE and only life.

The Love Project is my new workshop series on the learnings and takeaways of my popular blog The Grief Project, now a 7-part CBC Documentary titled Tommy Tinker Forever. This 4-part workshop will explore the power of art and yoga to build physical and emotional resiliency.  


The Love Project is an 4 uplifting 3-hour experience with a PLAN.

  1. Discussion

  2. Gentle Yoga Practice

  3. Mindful Art Exercise.

Included with your investment are Estelle’s favourite magic tools:


For this workshop, Estelle will only accept 15 committed students with the only pre-requisite that you can attend all 4-sessions.

This is a closed workshop. No drop-ins allowed. You need not have rolled out a yoga mat, nor ever picked up a paint brush before (meaning you do not need to feel you are an “artist”) .

This series is for people ready to unfold in new ways, a permission slip welcoming you into your own LOVE PROJECT.


$247 for four 3-hour workshops

Registration is through On the Mat, Halifax.
