Workshops

 
Words honestly can’t even TOUCH how much the Love Project has changed me! I gained a whole new skill-set for self-discovery and overcoming pain & grief. I also learned to recognize and expand my definition of grief to a whole range of human experiences and in that process, have learned to acknowledge and take care of my body, mind, and soul through art, yoga, and journaling. I had never used art as a medium for self-expression and never even considered myself to be a “creative person” before. This workshop allowed me to shed that limiting definition of myself and bring art and creativity into my life in all new ways. If you have the chance to participate in The Love Project- DO IT! Take the leap. Open your mind, body, and soul, and give yourself permission to carve this space into your schedule- you will thank yourself later.

The Love Project

Workshop is now OPEN!


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.
