Meet the Owner

Cynthia Banks – Owner & Founder

I knew from the moment I walked down the driveway this was the place I was meant to be, and this was the space I was meant to hold for all of us.   On a simple and beautiful walk, my own recovery to mental wellness led me here.  That was in 2019 and it has been an honour and a privilege to meet so many wonderful people since.

For 25 years, I was an independent documentary filmmaker (www.banksproductions.com) and have worked through and on my own mental disorders and addictions in many ways.  I knew I wanted to work with people on a more intimate level, so I turned the page.  Over the years, I became a certified 500-hour Yoga practitioner with certificates in Anxiety and Stress Reduction; yoga nidra; Level 2 Reiki Practitioner; Aromatherapy Masseuse and graduated in Addiction Studies from McMaster University.

I am privileged to be on this fun and adventurous path, sharing so many experiences and modalities on site with our visitors.  They keep me motivated!  And, it also shines my heart brightly to be working alongside my son, Chris.  With two Rising Spirits, we welcome you here!
