Event Details:

Set in the beautiful atmosphere of the Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens, the Alchemy of Gathering will focus on creating an open space for community to come together and celebrate our connections - connections to each other, to Nature and to ourselves. The gathering will also offer an area for artistic emotional expression and healing through the creative process of three Art for Healing workshops.

The Alchemy of Gathering will begin with an opening ceremony led by the local First Nations to celebrate and honour the land and people. On the stage, throughout the day, there will be presentations, live music and sound healing performances.


Set amongst the majestic tall trees of the Sunset Garden, over 40 local vendors will have products and services related to wellness, creativity, healing, empowerment, self-care and community. Also, there will be interactive stations for attendees to participate in different meditation techniques, smudging and more.


Experience a time and space to gather and share ideas on wellness, connection, identity, creativity, healing and more. Let us come together in Nature and celebrate the community and love that is here NOW!
