Healthy dose of workshops, seminars



By Nicole Fitzgerald

Michael Losier’s Law of Attraction is perfectly mirrored in a Whistler event seeking to empower the individual to balance the mind, body and spirit.

The second annual Whistler Wellness Week hosts various workshops from May 5 to 13 in Whistler to propel participants into the life they’ve always wanted through a series of educative seminars, workshops and demonstrations looking at health.

The events will cover a wide range of topics including fitness, yoga, meditation, ayurveda, Pilates, weight loss, supplements, nutrition, interpersonal relationships, goal setting and living your dream — something #1 Bestselling Author Losier aims to make a reality for everyone.

“The Law of Attraction is a science and it’s all about vibes,” Losier explained from his home in Victoria. “What you get (in life) is what you vibrate. The model is that simple. If you get it, you vibrate it.”

Participants can study the three pillars of the theory at Higher Ground’s The Secret Uncovered! seminar on Thursday, May 10 from 7 to 9 p.m. at MY Millennium Place as part of Whistler Wellness Week. Using the attraction law, participants can learn how to better all aspects of their lives including money, relationships, inner peace, fitness and business.

Losier should know a thing or two about the benefits of good vibes, with one of his books selling every six minutes. He’s conducted more than 170 seminars and 200 hours of talk show radio on the topic throughout North America. He was recently featured on Oprah .

So how does it work?

Let’s break it down. Losier explained the Law of Attraction is about a vibe, a mood or feeling someone picks up on. Vibe comes from the longer-term vibration. People have vibrations. The world has vibrations. Only two polarities exist in vibration: negative and positive. So depending on what vibe you are sending out is how your world will react.

“Universal energy is around us and is responding to the vibration we are sending, whether negative or positive,” he said. “This will help people understand why a day keeps getting worse and worse and why some people seem to be on a lucky roll.”

Other Whistler Wellness presenters to look forward to include life-skills mentor Sheilaa Hite and personal trainer Ron Jarrett, who is a two-time winner of the Toughest Calgarian Alive competition.

Highlights for the week include an opening gala, Active Communities Day and a Whistler Wellness Fair. The fair will gather 70 exhibitors to showcase holistic health, nutrition, fitness, beauty and lifestyle at the Telus Conference Centre.
