Welcome to Pathways Connect Kelowna!
WHAT IS A PATHWAYS CONNECT GROUP?
A Pathways Connect Group is a free, non-profit parenting project. It is a safe place for you to find people striving toward conscious parenting sharing their insights and experiences. Holistic, conscious living means making informed choices that are right for your family. In Pathways Connect, you will find respect and support for those choices as we all explore together.
To learn more about Pathways to Family Wellness, check out their website.
WHO IS WELCOME?
Everyone is welcome. The conversations are generally geared toward young families and pregnant women. You do not need to be a patient of AltaVie to get involved. This is a free community group. Feel free to bring a friend! & feel to bring young children and babes-in-arms, as well.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
Pathways Connect Groups are FREE! There is no cost involved for participating because the Group is sponsored by your local healthcare providers. Plus you get a free magazine!
We may occasionally host special speakers and open up to donations for local charities.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING OUR GATHERINGS?
We gather. We chat. We discover, learn, and grow. There will be one or two topics from the current Pathways magazine issue pre-picked each meeting and one of the AltaVie practitioners will assist in moderating, but this group about community and is free to roam. We will follow the conversation wherever it leads.
During any of our special speaker series, we will gather, listen, and then provide opportunity for questions and discussion on that night’s topics.
WHEN & WHERE DO WE MEET?
We gather on Sundays from 10:00am - 11:00am ... most of the time. See individual events for specific times and dates! We aim for once a month and usually the first weekend of the month unless other plans are in the way.
We gather on-site at AltaVie Integrated Family Health (434 Cedar Avenue)... most of the time. Starting in 2019, based on feedback from our moms that nature makes them better versions of themselves, we sometimes choose to gather in the great outdoors. See each individual event for the specific location of each meetup as it may change each time. Remember, just because we meet at AltaVie does not mean that you need to be a patient at the office. All are welcome.
For specific dates & places, check our Facebook Page.
ARE MY KIDS WELCOME?
Yes! Our goal is to elevate our awareness in parenting and partner together in community. What a great example to set before our children! Kids of all ages are welcome. Most of our "regular" munchkins are either in infant/baby-wearing stage or between toddler and early school age.
WHO ARE MY HOSTS?
