SOUL SESSION #21

The Soul Sessions is an evening of connection, learning and community. This intimate event features inspirational women speakers talking about what body, mind and spirit means to them. Take some time to slow down, learn something new, have a conversation, and build connections in a meaningful way. In the words of Oriah Mountain Dreamer in the Invitation “It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.  I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.”

August 15, 2018 Guest Speakers

Humaira Ahmed will share her journey from Pakistan to Canada and into entrepreneurship. She will talk about how persistence, strong will and a fearless attitude has helped her in her entrepreneurship journey in a male-dominated industry (technology).   Humaira is a Victoria based entrepreneur with over a decade experience in marketing and a background in Software Engineering. She is the Founder of Spice Marketing, a boutique on demand digital marketing agency and Founder and CEO of LocElle - a women only social networking platform.  Humaira is extremely passionate about empowering young girls and women entrepreneurs and encourage them to take leap of faith and dream big! When not at work, Humaira can be found enjoying the outdoors with her two girls and husband.
Janine Fulla will reveal her personal awakenings about parenthood, by sharing her story of a less than perfect relationship with her own parents, the effects of limiting beliefs on her life and how she overcame those limits. She will share how she made the choice to stop the negative parenting patterns with her own children, with her profound “Aha ha” moment. Janine’s stories of challenges and triumphs will inspire anyone involved with children. Janine is a Single Parent of two grown children, an Author, and Parent Coach. Her book “Parent to Parent” ~ A Personal Journey of Raising Extraordinary Children by Teaching Essential Life Skills, shares personal stories of raising her own children to be empowered, confident and authentic. Kirkus Rewiews gave it a thumbs up, and it has been featured in The New York Book of Reviews Magazine. Janine was a facilitator of a parenting program in Victoria for 6 years in which her members encouraged her to write the book, as did her own children. Janine is involved in helping Haitian Villages in Dominican Republic, delivering food to those suffering from HIV/Aids and/or abject poverty. She has been sponsoring a little Haitian girl for the last 8 years and visits her a couple times a year. Locally, Janine loves kayaking, gardening, fishing, bike riding, and time with her children and special friends.
Niki Campbell will talk about the pursuit of living a life without pretense. She’ll talk about her own continued journey of placing herself into the world with authenticity, and navigating what that word means when it is such a trend to “represent” yourself authentically. This will be an exploration of staying true to yourself, having a voice when there are so many other voices, and pausing to land in a place where you are simply walking your true path. Niki designs + builds websites with one goal in mind — to get to the essence of your value and your offering, and to convey that with precision on your website. She also delivers workshops if you want to roll up your sleeves and do it yourself. She has two new creative endeavours that she is folding into her mix, because she knows that creative expression connects her to feeling grounded and alive. Niki loves to be in the moment, engage in rich soulful conversations, and push ideas to unearth the magic that exists when you do the hard work.
Tessa McLoughlin is a passionate believer in the power of human connection and the importance of creating space where people feel like they belong. Since moving to Victoria she has started up numerous initiatives including Thinklandia, The Watershed Coworking, and most recently Club Kwench - Victoria's first Coworking Culture Club. When she isn't trying to change peoples lives, one club at a time, Tessa has the privilege of hanging out with her favourite 9 and 11-year-old.
