“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.”

What Is LIVING VISION?


Thank you, EveryOne for an amazing weekend of Living Vision!  We will bring video and written testimonial and event footage to this page soon, but we will tell you now, that there was transformation on an individual level that could have only transformed our world! 

As it says in Chapter 5 of the Text of A Course in Miracles…”to be whole-hearted, you must be happy.  If fear and love cannot co-exist, and if it is impossible to be wholly fearful and remain alive, the only possible whole state is that of love.  There is no difference between love and joy.”

    “You are being blessed by every beneficent thought of any of your brothers anywhere.  You should want to bless them in return, out of gratitude.  You need not know them individually, or they you.  The light is so strong that it radiates throughout humanity and returns thanks for radiating joy upon it.”

In other words, from our time together at Living Vision, we are certain that waves of joy from us went out over all of the world, and that we have further opened to receive waves of joy, converging in us, from all over the world.  

Thank you, EveryOne, who came and shared heart and soul with each other.  We will do this again!

Love & Blessings,
Paul and Kathie
 

Living Vision is a powerfully transformative experience – a rite of passage from where you are living now to living the life you were born and meant to live.  It is a Universal wake-up call for those of us ready to live on purpose, using our greatest gifts and talents, in service to humanity and the world for the BEST LIFE EVER!

Living Vision is for anyone looking for a community in which to share the vision of global transformation on a personal and a collective level.

Living Vision is 3 days of Self-Discovery in Community – A Murmuration of Transformation!

At Living Vision we move collectively as One, yet we each are encouraged to reach into our deepest essence for the beauty of our soul work and to source that mystical place of vision and possibility.

We dare to envision new possibilities together through the power of conscious community – through sacred rituals and healing arts – and the collective energy of the field we create expands exponentially through the magic of sound, song, movement, meditation and breath, to bring us to our inner forgiveness – essential for ourselves and all of humanity.

From the power of our community experience – to commune in unity – new potentials inherent in our collective human spirit emerge.

Living Vision allows us to experience what it means to have a spiritual family – supporting each other, shining a light on what we already know is possible, and reaching our full potential together – to move forward with our personal quests for wholeness, supported by the foundation of our experience together.

These new possibilities become powerful catalysts for creative expression, personal and global, and an open doorway to a profoundly deeper, richer life!

A loving and supportive community is a very important launching pad for our heartfelt dreams – our visions of expressing our gifts and talents – in service to humanity and the world.

Our ongoing vision is to continue to extend our community, to support your Living Vision, and to build on the new vista of possibilities created during our time together.

Come Join In The Vision!

The Universal wake-up call ~ Awakening the dreamer ~ for global transformation…

Indigenous leaders explain the meaning of the Condor and Eagle prophecy, and the anticipated reunion of the two entities…

The Eagle and the Condor is an ancient prophecy that speaks volumes about where we came from, where we are now, and where we’re going.

Essentially, all of human society splits into two paths- the path of the Eagle, and that of the Condor.

The Eagle represents the North; masculine energy and focus of the mind.

The path of the Condor is represented by the South; feminine energy and the softness of the heart.

According to the prophecy, the 1490’s marked a significant event that would ignite a 500 year period of suffering and conflict.”

“During this time, the people of the Eagle would gain enough power and force to almost completely eliminate the people of the Condor.”

“The prophecy continues by saying that the next 500-year period, which began in the 1990’s, would be a time of divine connection between the Eagle and the Condor.

Or rather, that there would be the potential for these two to fly together and ring in a new age of consciousness for all mankind.

The prophecy is telling us that the time for a shift is now. We have the potential; we know how to make this a better world for everyone. So, let’s do it. I’m ready to fly- are you?”

Acclaim For Living Vision


Living Vision birthed a community in Vancouver that exists today and has sent it seeds out all over this world!

Living Vision is a forum for Facilitators to participate too ~ bringing their wisdom to a process and leading the way – like a lead goose in a migration!

The Living Vision experience allowed my soul to catch up and cozy up next to my heart.  To hear the whispers of her fondest wishes for me.  It allowed me to catch up with my grieving and was also an opportunity to work with fully committed people, immediately ready to show up…and to experience the radiant beauty of being human within the power of community.  The Gift of Unconditional Love – creating the safest, most sacred and loving environment that I’ve experienced in a long time…To allow and cultivate your highest calling on this Earth, to create a supportive community that will be there for you fully, when you are ready to manifest that Vision.  I now feel there is hope for Mother Earth and humanity as more and more people are allowed the opportunity to align themselves with their soul work.  To lovingly work towards the manifestation of my own vision and role on this wounded but ever so beautiful Mother Earth.

Pepe Danza, Musician/Shaman, Facilitator/Participant, Living Vision 2007, 2008, 2009

I was changed dramatically by this experience of opening and witnessing others who shared an urge to open their hearts, and who did so. We cooperatively provided a safe space to reach new ground within, surrounded by nurturing energy that somehow surmounted all barriers…

Amazingly, there are many people I met at Living Vision who are still favourite people in my life and others who I see from time to time with whom I am bonded because of the wonderful experienced shared. We all took one giant step forward and we love recalling changes that we made, as a direct result of our time together.

~ Cassandra Lea Wilson, Author, Facilitator/Participant, LV 2006, 2007, 2008

My partner Jonas and I had the pleasure of attending the ‘Living Vision Retreat’ in September of 2007. This was our first time participating in an event of this nature and our spirits were completely uplifted and nourished from the wonderful experience that we had. Not only did we have the privilege of connecting with many amazing and inspirational individuals, this retreat also facilitated us discovering a deeper connection to ourselves and our life’s purpose.

We felt that this was a very important launching pad for our dream and that the momentum of what we shared at Living Vision really helped to bring our vision into reality. In less than one year since the retreat, we received Corporate Sponsorship for ‘Kindness ROCKS’ and the show is well on its way to reaching thousands of children.

Kathie and Paul Scott are two of the most special, genuine and loving people I have ever met. I am very grateful for the support and positive energy they put behind our Vision of ‘Kindness ROCKS’, which is now a ‘Living Vision’.

Paul & Kathie Scott


Quantum Life


Paul and Kathie’s paths converged New Year’s Eve, 2005 when they met on the dance floor – and dancing remains a passion of theirs to this day!

In their vows taken on Makena Beach, Maui, June 10, 2006, they dedicated their relationship to their healing growth and bringing that to community…   

Read More...
A common bond is their sobriety – with almost 50 years combined, alcohol free, they know the healing journey personally from this perspective through the 12 Steps as well as avid students of A Course In Miracles.

Living Vision is an annual 100-person retreat they held at Lake Sasamat for the first 4 years of their marriage – creating a network for community whose many offspring thrive to this day – which inspired them to go even deeper into what they wanted to bring forward for the transformation of the Human BEing.

Over the past 12 years, following where Spirit led, they dove into many healing modalities…

For her 50th, Kathie took herself to Fiji, to be Initiated as a Oneness Blessing Giver, which opened up yet another path to Awakening for them both.

January 1st, 2011, they facilitated their first Cacao Journey for a handful of friends, and in the years since have created a 12-Chakra guided Breath Meditation – ANAHATA.

Some peak experiences, over and above their monthly Cacao Journeys, are 200+ person Anahata Cacao Journeys at the Vancouver Planetarium for the September Equinox 2017 and Blessed Coast Festival 2018.

Looking for the perfect Instructional modality, in March 2011, they landed on Quantum Touch for its simplicity to convey energy healing – as Instructors and Mentors, they have witnessed the transforming effect in many lives in the 70+ QT Workshops and countless Healing Circles they have facilitated.

They headed for India, aiming for the Oneness University for the celebration of December 21, 2012. – a once-in-a-lifetime 44-days of deepening their connection with All That Is that Heals EveryOne – and became Trainers for this powerful transmission, hosting the Oneness Awakening Initiation every year during the Easter weekend.

As Metaphysical Ministers, they can legally officiate weddings in Canada, and it is one of their absolute JOYS to – together, simultaneously! – marry couples who choose this path for their relationship.

Paul has endless credits from a very young age, including leading programs with Context International, Rhodes Wellness College and completing his BA in Transpersonal Counseling with Clearmind International.  His most recent is Family Constellation Facilitator Training with Jan Hull.

Kathie began life on the West Coast in 1981 at LG73/CFOX, starting as Administrative Assistant to the General Manager and Program Directors, finally ending her radio career as Samantha on the LG Morning Zoo in April 1991.  With years of experience in film and television, she danced with John Travolota, made Jodie Foster laugh and her favorite celebrity over all those years is still Cher.

Clearly, their dedication is bottomless, as they head to Ecuador for the Pranic Living Breatharian Initiation while they prepare to rebirth Living Vision – 2019!

Dalannah Gail Bowen – Christ Church Cathedral


Indigenous Elder


Please NOTE:  Dalannah has come down with the FLU and will not be with us for Friday night’s event – next time, Dalannah!  We are Honoured to have Dalannah Gail Bowen join us at the Christ Church Cathedral on Friday night to call in the Ancestors at the Opening Ceremony for Living Vision.  She will also speak to our Intention for this Gathering.

Christine & Terry “Coyote” Aleck – Christ Church Cathedral, Vision Panel


Indigenous Elder


In 1990, Terry “Coyote” Aleck , along with 6 other survivors of St. George’s Indian Resident School in Lytton who were subjected to extreme abuse, brought a case against the Anglican Church and the Canadian government for the abuse they suffered in the residential schools – and won!  It was the first lawsuit of its kind in Canada.  In bringing awareness and the weight of the legal precedent to this key issue, Terry established himself as a prominent face of Reconciliation. He is proud of his heritage and sees that it will take All Nations and All Our Relations to hold the Vision of healing our world.

It is with great Honour that we welcome him to set our Intentions in a Drumming Circle in Christ Church Cathedral, a church whose primary mandate is to hold space for the healing of Canada’s Indigenous and to nurture Inter-faith relationships.  Bring your drum!  Terry and his wife Christine welcome you in their Circle!

Jan Hull


Family Constellation – Systemic Solutions


Jan Hull is celebrating 15 years of Family Systems facilitation and training – from as far south as Washington and Oregon and locally on Vancouver Island up to the North Coast in Alert Bay and Kingcome Inlet, BC.

Jan began her training in 2003 through the Human Systems Institute of Portland, Oregon.

Prior to that, Jan received certification through the Justice Institute of BC in Conflict Resolution and Mediation.

She currently resides in the Cowichan Valley and, when she’s not facilitating Family Systems Work, she instructs Social Work at Sprott Shaw College in Nanaimo and enjoys foster parenting with her partner.

Jan’s workshops are interactive and structured for actively doing and learning the work – because Systemic Constellation Work meets us where we live, in our bodies and in relationships. This tool cuts to the core where other modalities can fall short.

When practiced in groups, Systemic Constellation Work nourishes our need for connection and community as well.

Family Constellation Work was developed by Bert Hellinger, now well into his 80’s. He grew up as a boy in Germany through the personal and cultural impact of World War ll. With the support of his parents, he fled to Africa as a 19-year-old priest and became a welcomed member of the Zulu people. There, he learned the intricacies of Zulu family system principles and how to utilize the mystery of systemic knowing fields for insight and healing. After 20 years he made the decision to return to Germany and immerse himself in Eastern Philosophy and Western Psychotherapy. By brilliantly combining his Shamanic and Eastern teachings with Western psychology, he refined the tool of Family Constellation Work grounded in the natural laws of human relationships and their often unrealized effects on the individual.

Family Systems Work has been recognized worldwide for 40 years.

Trevor Yelich


Numa Somatics Breathwork


Trevor has explored and studied a wide array of bodymind practices and healing arts over the past 22 years.  The richness of these studies, the gamut of his life experiences, and a deep curiosity about the seamlessly inter-connected mechanisms of mind and body have led to an increasingly integrated approach to healing.

Trevor has a diploma in Acupuncture and has also studied Conscious Connected Breathwork, Chi Nei Tsang (Visceral/Abdominal Massage), Acutonics® Vibrational Healing, Thai Massage, and Bodynamics Somatic Psychotherapy. Deeply interested in trauma and its resolution, he is currently expanding his studies in Somatic Experiencing.

In addition to his therapeutic work, Trevor has developed and facilitated Conscious Connected Breathwork Facilitator trainings and Nūma Somatics Facilitator trainings.  Trevor has had the blessing of sharing these trainings and related workshops all across Canada as well as leading yoga retreats in Canada, Costa Rica, and Peru.

Jacky Essombe


African Dance and Folklore


Originally from Cameroon, Central Africa, Jacky Yenga grew up in Paris and now lives in Vancouver, BC.  Her foundation for life was rooted in togetherness and collaboration, respect for the elders, for nature and the ancestors. Living a connected life and expressing joy through dancing and singing as a way of life was her daily reality, until the age of 9.  She experienced the trauma of disconnection when she was sent to the West to “live a better life”. Now she is an inspiring speaker and an enthusiastic ambassador for the wisdom of Africa and their message of togetherness, which she shares around the world in various forms, including as a singer, music and dance performer.

“I have the vision of a world where we treat each other like family, and I believe in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.”

Her passion is helping others experience the creativity and wisdom of their bodies, a sacred healing practice.

Sayde


Gene Keys Interpretation


Born in Vancouver to much fanfare (the only baby born “live on the radio” in Canada to LG73 Morning Zoo Co-hosts, Samantha (Kathie Scott) and Dean Hill) Sayde has found the circumstances of a person’s life fascinating, leading her into many healing and divination modalities surrounding the mystery of who we are, why we are here and what we are being led to do in this life.

Sayde spent 7 years living in France, where she became fluent in French and completed her Masters in Business and International Marketing whilst working in the big cosmetics houses of L’Oreal, completing her thesis and practicum with Sisley International, a very high-end boutique cosmetic line based in Paris. 

Upon her return to Canada in 2017, she immediately immersed herself in the healing arts and her personal healing journey.  Among the array of modalities that Sayde explored, she landed firmly with Gene Keys and Human Design,  is an avid student of A Course in Miracles, and is a recent graduate of Jan Hull’s Family Constellation Facilitator Training.

Zamir Dhanji


 Chakra Yoga


Zamir Dhanji studied Chakra Yoga with David Goulet of Pyramid Yoga.  David began his yogic studies in the 1970’s under Swami Gitananda – found of the Ananda Ashyram in Pondicherry.

Chakra Yoga applies the various systems of yoga in an integrated way to promote the body’s natural healing abilities, and is strongly influenced by developments in modern biology, physics and neuroscience.

Zamir’s practice is based on a holistic understanding of the body/mind system that complements the scientific knowledge of ancient yogis.

He is also an initiate of Ati-Yoga under the guidance of Wisdom Master Maticintin, founder of HÜMÜH Clear-Mind Buddhism, with whom he has discipled with for the last eight years in the practice and study of meditation and Buddhist logic.

My goal as a yoga teacher is to inspire others to embrace the depth of what yoga has to offer – integrating our potential in body, mind, emotions and spirit.”

Mona Leung & Michael Kraus – Vision Panel


Conscious Hairapy – One Journey


Mona Leung  

In Mona’s 26 years as an International Hair Stylist, she has traveled the world and has witnessed the hair industry in both its enticing, fast-paced environment and in ts truly intimate moments.  Her widespread involvement int he hair industry and her profound relationship with her clients, has inspired her movement towards healing and self-care within the beauty sector.  Together with a feature documentary film, she plans to promote the importance of going beyond vanity and looking inwards on a spiritual level for true inner and outer alignment.  Mona calls her practice Intuitive Transformational Hair Artistry for the hands-on healing experience it incorporates.  Through her practice, she teaches that hair holds untapped magical powers and that in properly invigorating and enhancing, it is possible to empower clients to be their very best true selves!

Michael Kraus

Trained as a professional Chef in Germany, Michael immigrated to Canada at the age of 25. He quickly developed into an entrepreneur and business owner. His definition of hospitality is “to have a genuine interest in the well-being of other people” and his purpose is to be “in service to others”. Life was his university and a desire for peace at the centre of his Being. After his exit from the hospitality industry Michael expanded his knowledge into energy and frequency healing, life coaching, breath work and is currently a student of The Shamanic Institute of Medicine.

His vision for ONE JOURNEY dates back to 2009, when an unexplained beam of light entered his body that lead him on the search for a way to help bring peace and understanding to the world. The idea for “ONE JOURNEY” was “officially” born in 2014 and evolved into a film and mobile app project to assist in the transformation of human consciousness.
