Our self-healing power
**This workshop is offered only in French; however please feel free to join us!** Nobel Prize winner William Teller said that the medicine of the future will be based on controlling energy in the body. This energy, which circulates in the meridians of acupuncture is often blocked by the emotional memories of stress badly lived, but also by deficient nutrition. To activate this energy flow, it is crucial to restore conscious communication between body and mind and provide the body with the necessary nutrients. Meet our naturopath Ilona Dowgiallo . Ilona graduated in 1992 at the Graduate School of Naturopathic Quebec . She also holds a PhD in physics followed by 14 years of research in the Department of Nuclear Medicine and Radiobiology CHUS in Sherbrooke . She took additional training in acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine and teaching in health science (University of Montreal ) . After all these years of research and practice, Ilona offers a unique approach to naturopathic consultation.

12pm to 2pm
Lunch
Throughout the years, we have at times questioned whether or not to maintain buffet service at all meals. However, our experience, and also our deepest convictions, has shown that only the buffet has the ability to titillate and encourage visitors to discover new foods and a greater assortment of condiments. This formula has also been preferred because it allows each guest to create their own special dish, all in taking into account the activity they wish to do after their meal. At lunchtime, for example, one who is getting ready to receive a treatment will be happy to put together a light meal from the many choices available at the buffet. Conversely so, at the same meal, a visitor having just completed a session of aqua-aerobics and who will be going on a long hike in the afternoon, will be happy to refuel and all the while make more culinary discoveries! It is to preserve this flexibility and variety that the buffet has been maintained at breakfast and during the evening meal, even though table service is offered.

Cercle de parole
CERCLE DE PAROLE À 20 h ce soir, vous êtes conviés à vivre un cercle de parole inspiré des traditions autochtones et facilité par Guylaine Cliche. Lors de cette activité, l’auteure raconte les apprentissages qu’elle a faits auprès des gens des Premières Nations qu’elle a côtoyés pour la production de son plus récent livre, un ouvrage rédigé en collaboration avec le Conseil traditionnel mohawk de Kahnawake. Notez que vous pouvez participer à l’atelier sans obligation de parler dans le cercle. Les mots d’ordre de la soirée sont plaisir et liberté. GUYLAINE CLICHE est fascinée par la puissance de la parole et la force de l’écrit. Elle anime des ateliers d’écriture depuis 2007. Lors de ses ateliers, elle agit avec sincérité, compassion et respect de la liberté. Quatre livres sont issus de cette auteure, dont le plus récent publié aux Éditions le Jour pour la version française et chez Juniper pour la version anglaise : Paroles de Paix en terre autochtone/Words of Peace in Native Land. Guylaine Cliche offre aussi des consultations privées en coaching d’écriture. Renseignez-vous à l’espace soins. Vous rêvez de vivre une retraite d’écriture ? Deux séjours susceptibles de vous intéresser sont proposés : L’Écriture, un outil de vie accessible à tous et Je lance mon projet de livre ! Tous les détails se trouvent sur le site de Spa Eastman, sous l’onglet Hébergement/Retraites et groupes à venir. L’équipe à la réservation peut aussi vous renseigner, n’hésitez pas.
