Choose to live a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness: it is a process of change and growth towards a mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically healthy lifestyle.
In order to live a higher quality life, maintaining optimal wellness is key. Everything we feel and do relates to our well-being and directly affects our actions and emotions. In order to subdue stress, reduce illness, and ensure positive moments in your life, you must achieve optimal wellness.
We must also allow ourselves to heal from pain in order to transform and break generational cycles of trauma. This requires some careful soul-searching, honesty, awareness, time to process and bring resolution and closure. Moving forward with powerful learning & teaching is the best thing we can do for our children and grandchildren.
To achieve optimal wellness, one must apply it towards every possible endeavor. You can apply a wellness approach towards your environment, community, career, belief systems, physical activities, self care, healthy eating, self esteem, and creative activities. Applying wellness in your everyday life will allow you to achieve your full potential and live with passion and purpose.
"The workshop targeted the issues and problems that many First Nations have and helped us to recognize and initiate the steps required to resolve these issues. Marcia was very open, honest, genuine and knowledgeable in the teachings, as well, she kept the entire Chief & Council engaged throughout the day."
"Marcia’s style of presentation was straight forward and was shared in a way that everyone understood and could relate to the personal references she made from her own experiences."
"The 'Arrows to the Heart' presentation provides participants with greater learning around personal responsibility and professional growth that can enhance health service programming. This presentation has the potential for greater community impact learning for staff, leadership and community, that emphasize healing as a journey."
"Marcia presented for the students on the topic of Lateral Violence. She was able to maintain control of the audience and had good management skills for off task behaviours.

"Marcia’s contribution was well presented and received. Her presentation featured a lecture accompanied with a power point presentation and video. The topic was provoking and interesting. She presented the material in a way that kept the entire audience’s attention and interest throughout the presentation. Her transitions from topic to topic and from lecture to visuals, was smooth and well timed. Not only was her knowledge of the topic very evident, her way in which she shared her expertise was what really made this presentation so well done. She appeared very comfortable and confident speaking to a large group of people."
