Sheina Hemstreet

Sheina Hemstreet: Certified Dancing for Birth Instructor and Professional Doula

What are you most passionate about?:

I am most passionate about doing my part as a parent and professional doula to ensure parents and babies can have the most satisfying experience possible. Pregnancy, birth and postpartum should be treated with the upmost care. Parents who feel supported and  confident in their decisions, they enjoy the experience more.

What do you love to help people with?:

I love helping to create a space for people to feel safe and supported. Always providing non judgmental, unbiased, compassionate space for people who need it. I hope when I leave this world, people have a memories of me making them feel good, about themselves.

Tara Kovach

Tara Kovach –  Indian Head Massage Practitioner

What am I most passionate about? I love people and exploring natural health.  My interest in natural healing was inspired by my mother who read plenty of natural health books while I was growing up.  We ate vegetarian in the 80’s, cod liver oil in the 70’s (yuk!) and carob throughout both decades.  I am a mother who loves tending and caring for  all beings.

What do I love helping people with? I love helping people have quiet time (if that’s what they desire) and also providing the gift of a listening soul.  I also enjoy giving people the gift of loving touch,  I believe this  can be just as helpful as the physical assistance I give the body to assist in relaxation and pain relief.

I am most passionate about LIFE and LIVING!!!  Health (physical, mental/emotional, spiritual), connection with family, friends, and nature, learning, growing, and expansion in every sense of the word…all of these things and more are the gifts we are given through LIFE.   

“Life is a very great gift, and a great good, not because of what it gives us, but because of what it enables us to give to others.”  

“Let us come alive to the splendor that is all around us, and see the beauty in ordinary things.” ~Thomas Morton

What do you love to help people with?:

Our world today is busy and generally as a society we are over-stimulated and chronically stressed.  I love being able to provide services that allow people to relax, recharge and rejuvenate.

Jayme Cannon


Jayme Cannon – Traditional Herbalist and Forest Gardener

Jayme Cannon didn’t fully understand what she was getting herself into when she signed up for the Traditional Herbalist program at The Living Earth School of Herbalism in the year 2000…little did she know that her decision would forever change the way she saw and experienced her world.

While researching the medicinal properties of an every day cuppa tea, she was excited by the history and mythology that she found interspersed amidst her research.  She went on to share her discoveries through teaching at the Royal Ontario Museum, as well as colleges, libraries and cafes (and wherever she has an audience).  Jayme has an engaging teaching style that stems from her desire to educate and entertain.  

Jayme’s herbal training began with a strong focus on local, sustainably wildcrafted medicine.  Much of her dispensary has been harvested from forests, so when she discovered Permaculture and Food Forests, she knew she had found a path that would further deepen her connection with the plant world.

She took her Permaculture Design Certificate in 2011.  Recently, she has taken on a 3 acre Pear Orchard Rehabilitation project at The Living Centre with her partner.

As care taker of the Forest Garden Farmacy, she enjoys providing people with locally grown and sustainably wildcrafted edibles and medicinals.
