Countdown to our NOT Another TIFF Party Fundraiser

DAY #12 - Today's post is another incredibly special one because it focuses on new ways to improve the overall health and wellness of our minds/body/spirit.

I'm so thrilled to be able to connect Robin's Healing Nest to our community of artists because as creatives our "instruments" are exactly that... our minds, our bodies and our spirits. 

I think we can all admit that; with hectic schedules, work that takes us on emotional roller coasters and more often than not, dealing with that little thing called rejection, our instruments take quite a beating!

Robin Gagliardi is an Energy Healing Practitioner with a master's certification in REIKI as well as a master's certification in INTEGRATED ENERGY THERAPY®. She is also one of the most generous, genuinely lovely people I have ever met. P.S she is my sister in law (I kinda hit the jackpot with this one)

You can read more about Robin and her journey HERE.

So, what is Reiki and Integrated Energy Therapy®(IET)?

REIKI is a Japanese Technique for stress reduction and relaxation which promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on of the hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us, causing us to be alive. If this "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to feel stress, and if it's high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

If you'd like to read more about Reiki and it's ideology and benefits, you can continue HERE

INTEGRATED ENERGY THERAPY (IET) is a quick and powerful method for clearing energy blockages in the 9 sets of Integration Power Points. These points are acupressure like points, which when activated by IET energy vibration, trigger the quick and easy release of even the most suppressed cellular memories and emotions. 

Releasing these memories and emotions will release suppressed feelings, limiting thoughts/beliefs, and any aspects of yourself that can hold you back from living a fulfilling life.

DAY #8 - I can't wait to jump into this post because I cannot say enough great things about Joanna Haughton! On top of being a stunning actor, she is an incredibly successful fashion blogger, whose ModaMama blog I have drawn from many times for my own personal fashion inspiration. With her experience and expertise in front of the camera, came a natural ease behind the lens... and this is what I'm excited to talk about today!

Joanna's fun personality, mixed with her attention to detail make shooting with her an incredibly unique experience. Because of her work as an actor and model, her ability to bring out that "special something" in her clients is what sets her work apart from what you see in a typical headshot.

I've personally had the pleasure of shooting with Jo twice, and each time I was left struggling to pick my favourites from the range of shots she was able to capture for me. Here is what some of her clients had to say about their experiences working with Jo.

Jo offers a wide range of services for artists... everything ranging from head shots, editorial and branding photography, boudoir portraits, behind the scenes photography, set stills, promotional shots and everything in between. If you can't find a service, drop her an email and she will find a way to make your vision come to life.

If you're looking to nail that perfect look, or if you want to play with something more editorial and brand specific then you're in luck! Jo has donated a mini - headshot session for our raffle table!

To make sure that you don't miss out on the chance to collaborate with Jo for FREE make sure to pop in and get your name in the draw!

Tickets for the LambLion Fundraiser are available HERE!
