COLLECTIVE HEALING – “Connecting With My Community To Heal My Trauma”
On a journey to find herself, Deirdre met an incredible group of women who taught her that it didn’t matter who she had been, even her dark past of drugs, criminal activity and abuse wouldn’t deter them from showing her Collective Healing. This story is about a girl that against all odds created the life of her dreams by believing in herself and sharing her vulnerable story, which has also connected her to many new, meaningful friends. Deirdre hopes to encourage others to stand in their story and begin their healing journey.
Deirdre is a mother of 4, a competitive cyclist and founder of HighGate Racing; Canada’s largest female cycling team. She homeschools her children, is a writer and spends her winters abroad in California and Arizona. She advocates for wellness in the community and co-runs a local support group. She is also a Mighty Green Dragon on a Barrie Dragon Boat Race team that promotes a plant based diet.
THE PARADOX of JOY & SUFFERING – “Tales from Nepal & India”
Jen travelled the world in search of her lost name, Joy, which she was given for only a week as a newborn. During her (mis)adventures in Nepal and India, she made a surprising discovery in the poorest slum in Calcutta, India, called 'The City of Joy"
”Joy isn’t the absence of suffering, it’s learned through mindfulness and practicing gratitude.” Jen learned first hand with the poorest of the poor how great grief can co-exist with the greatest joys and triumphs.
Jen Galicinski is an English teacher, writer, world traveller, and a soon-to-be graduate from the Masters of Divinity program at Trinity College, UofT. She has travelled to over 16 countries and has come back changed from each one. She hopes to be a priest in the Anglican tradition and loves cutting and dying hair on the side.
ALL FAIR IN LOVE & WAR
Olivia is excited to share songs and stories about love, anger, sadness, and hope. They will revolve around her connection with her father, her journey with her mother and how she met the most amazing person ever. “Although life gets tough, there is definitely a way to find the bright side of things and allow life to get better as long as you keep the huskies mushin.”She views the world now a little bit taller, a little bit smarter, and a whole lot happier.
Olivia Grace Murphy is 17 and was born and raised in Barrie. Music has always been a big part of her life, playing as long as she can remember and she enjoys playing music in coffee shops around the town!
