Most times we let our life get in the way of our well-being—well, always, actually.  Meditation should be treated as necessary as water and yet we neglect to find the time or the uninterrupted space to replenish our soul.  Janice hosts a pleasant guided meditation the first Saturday of every month in an enchanting atmosphere among like minded people.

Each meditation has a different focus, ranging from individual Chakras to Past Life.

A wise man once said:
“Try to meditate for at least 10 minutes every day. If you don’t have time to do that, then meditate for an hour every day.”

Meditation helps in decreasing stress, reducing anxiety and depression, lowering blood pressure and increasing immunity, promoting calm and lessening the effects of emotions such as fear, anger, sadness, et cetera.

If you have never meditated, this could kick start you to a new life!  Just the Essentials currently holds monthly guided meditations on the first Saturday of every month.Time: 7-9 pm Doors open at 6:45.  Light refreshments.

Space is limited so please call ahead 905-578-1736 or e-mail: to reserve your spot!

You can now reserve your spot using our reservation calendar also.


Due to the large number of people attending, we are considering adding a week-night to accommodate those that don’t get a spot and that might prefer to keep their weekends free. Please fill out our survey  below, to help us determine day of the week preferences.

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and around us. If one’s “life force energy” is out of balance, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is balanced, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.

Axiatonal Alignment Workshop


Axiatonal Alignment is more than a healing modality it is an initiation into Divine Awareness. As a healing modality it opens blocked meridians to allow the free flow of energies that may have been trapped due to our resistant or denial of a spiritual experience (every experience is a Spiritual Experience). As we open to the free flow of energy, we will release all cellular memories that we have been afraid to look at.

  • it is so effective on clearing emotionals
  • quick and easy to do
  • balances and aligns the body
  • can be added in front of any other healing modality enhancing that treatment
  • extremely relaxing, clients feel rejuvenated as if they received an hour treatment
  • great for health shows and other industry conventions to offer quick and easy treatments

Classes in Axiatonal Alignment are usually run 2-3 times a year.

Pre-registration required.

Class restricted to 8 students!
