May you listen to your longing to be free.

May the frames of your belonging be generous enough for your dreams.

May you arise each day with a voice of blessing whispering in your heart.

May you find a harmony between your soul and your life.

May the sanctuary of your soul never be haunted.

May you know the eternal longing that lives at the heart of time.

May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.

May you never place walls between the light and yourself.

May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world to gather you,

Mind you and embrace you in belonging.

Changes Counselling and Psychotherapy acknowledges that we live, work, and learn on the unceded, ancestral, and traditional territories of the Omàmiwinini (Algonquin) and the Anishnabek (Original People). The lifeblood of this land is the Kichi-Sìbì (Ottawa) River, which has kept this Nation fed and nourished for thousands of years. We are indebted for the countless gifts bestowed by this land, and for that we give great thanks. Miigwech (thank you).
