LVCC Laundry Facilities and Showerhouse

A friendly Message from the LVCC: With the extremely cold weather and potential for frozen/broken pipes, we wanted to remind everyone that the showerhouse is open 24/7. Only the center washroom and laundry room are open during the winter months as they are the only rooms that have heat.

Healing Emotions Through Play: Playshops to Befriend Challenging Emotions

The holidays can be hard for some people; I invite you to come and sing and laugh through your sadness.

Every second Wednesday of the month from December to April, online 630-8 pm Pacific Time

Meditation, singing and theatre collaborative games, and play/discussion around the gifts of the featured emotion in a supportive environment.

Sadness is the featured emotion for December.

First class free. $15.00 – $25.00 sliding scale / class. Open to trade/barter.

Still not sure? I am happy to give a free 30 minute consultation. Send me an email at for questions or registration.

Let’s laugh and play and feel together… it’s my joy to share clown medicine for these times

Energy Massage with Megan Hyslop

A  special winter-only offering of energy massage! All proceeds will go towards my somatic therapy training next October.
I trained from 2009-2011 and have offered these sessions since 2012.
A bit more about it: Bio-cosmic-energy work is a holistic modality in the form of a massage that liberates the body of physical and emotional blockages and promotes feelings of lightness, joy, and confidence in the true Self.  Send me an email to talk with me more about it or to book a session
