“The event celebrates our success as a village and as a community. Westport is a vibrant, vigorous town,” said Thacker. The festival provides a chance to showcase the area to new people coming from Ottawa and Kingston.
“Each year we marvel at the number of people that return. It’s been said before; nobody’s a stranger very long in Westport.”

The Courage of Compassion
In this workshop you will learn the correlations between courage and self-compassion. With this key component life flows with passion and excitement. Without out it… anxiety and depression. You will come away with strategies and tips to help renew your hope that change is not only attainable but occurs in ways you least expect.
Some of the key points will be having the courage to take a chance and having the courage to be who you are. You will benefit by being inspired and confident to practice self care on a regular basis.
