Inspired by Nature

The Hive Experiences are inspired by creativity, the natural environment, and ancient wisdom. With honour and respect, aspects of teachings that have been shared at The Hive are incorporated into The Hive Signature Experiences.

When the doors of the church were re-opened to the public in 2013, Facilitators and Indigenous Leaders from all over the world often unexpectedly visited The Hive. Some stayed for a short time, others for weeks. They offered extraordinary perspectives and wisdom.

Participants were grateful to learn from and experience traditional Indigenous Ceremonies with Peruvian Shaman, Jhaimy Alvarez Costa; Gauta-Mayan Spiritual Guide, Ajq’iij Nan Shuni Giron; and Canadian Indigenous Leaders – Bear Standing Tall; Red Medicine Woman; and Chief Calvin Pompana.

Our first Indigenous Ceremony was with Peruvian Shaman, Jhaimy Alvarez Costa who held a sacred Despacho ceremony to bless the buildings and land.


We are incredibly thankful for experiences with so many Individuals who have impacted The Hive, its vision and direction including: a Plant-Based Medicine Talk & Walk with Joseph Pitawanakwat; VividLife Experiences with Shayne Traviss; Earthing with Sue Kenney; Edible Wild Food Walks with Karen Stephenson; Dentistry & Disease with Dr. Sawiak; Retreats with Franco DeNicola; Drumming Ceremonies with Gayle Crosmaz; Lomi Lomi with Randy Morrow; Kundalini Yoga with Angela Baldwin; Intuition and Voice Activation with Brenda MacIntyre; Sound Healing with Pamela Jane Gerrand, and many others.

Connect with us to add your name to a list of interested participants or gather a group of 6+ friends, family or colleagues for a private experience.
